my poor lonely site, I haven't updated in so long! I have been very
busy working for the dangerous and beautiful Miss Tiger! I have
taken over the designing of her web
site and I've just completed the illustration
Tiger, the sassiest little raver girl in the universe!
But now I'm back, and I'm ready to return to the job at hand.
the weekends at Michigan Avenue there's this funny guy that hands
out spectacular comic book style propaganda which preaches the hard
core Christian word of God. Each time that I casually stroll by
him on purpose, he hands me a couple of these booklets. He always
includes an anti-gay one for me, which is by far the most frightening
and outrageous of his collection.
I ask you to join me as I take you through the pages of
The story of Sodom
yeah, and as usual the Hate Mail letters are in blue
and mine are in black and white.
Jack T. Chick
begins his story on the fringes of your run-of-the-mill gay rally.
Let's take a look...
#1: When illustrating homosexuals, be sure to put them in
sunglasses. They wear them in order to hide their empty, soulless
The "Tales from the Crypt" guy on the far right
is my favorite.
those of you that have no problem with Gay and AIDS, let it
be known that they're also cold blooded murderers. Now if
only we could lump them in with rapists and child molesters,
then we'd have a stereo type that everyone could enjoy hating!
Charlie, couldn't there be just ONE Gay Pride rally that doesn't
turn into an angry, bloodthirsty mob?"
OUT BURT! THAT GAY WILL TEAR YOU TO PIECES!
has got to be the bravest man I've ever seen.
I have to say that the Christians are certianly a handsom
I videoed your rally so that I could paint your kind to be
murderous, hate-filled perverts. At least give me five minutes."
You're a saint Burt.
greedy Lot, you're so predictable in your selfishness. Unfortunatly
this time you've chosen DOOMTOWN!
we go, the child molesting homos that I'm familiar with (I'm
talkin' about that monk chasing the 6 year old in th background).
But it's the sweaty frenchkissing trannies that sold me on
the "evil ".
And they're worshipping a statue of Satan... I knew it!
author Jack is big on drawin' the bearded guys in Marilyn
Monroe wigs. Isn't this supposed to be 2000 years ago?
most favorite illustration in the book. I call it "Bigfoot
meets the Gerber Baby"
so this is God? What happened to the faceless S.O.B. that
was damnin' Catholics?
yes, rapists. That rounds out this characterization nicely.
Those angels better hide their sweet little saintly asses,
there's a muscular back that was drawn with tender loving
care. And the "Tales from the Crypt" guy makes another
appearance here on the left. He's the one announcing the general
Lot protects God's angels by offering up his virgin daughters.
It wouldn't surprise me if this was God's idea. You see, women
weren't really very high on the food chain back then.
It's that guy from Prodigy!
my favorite quote:
"The swearing, clawing perverts lunged for him."
You heard right... they were SWEARING!
"Dont let satan take you where
he is ... its not worth it. "
name is Christina. I had to write to you. Someone sent me
the link to your site, and I must say that I think it is very
sad that you would mock the Lord like that. Jesus was stripped
of his robes, then covered in mere rags, and hung up on a
cross to die... FOR YOU!!!!
here you have the nerve and gall to mock the Lord like this???
This site should be banned, and you should be ashamed of yourself.
Jesus suffered an unbelieveable death for YOU to be in Heaven
do not appreciate your site, and if you had any kind of heart,
you would take your site down. Dont let satan take you where
he is ... its not worth it.
Bless you, and PLEASE rethink ur site.
Thank you. Christina Brock , in Philadelphia,Pa
It astounds me
that in a supreme world where god-beings exist beyond our
comprehension in another dimension that we could never imagine,
there's a guy who needs our love and another guy that doesn't
see the futility of being evil. You'd think that a life of
infinity would have worked out some of these issues. They
deserve a good ball breaking for this alone!
So let's assume
that these unstable Masters of the Universe are competing
for our adoration. I ask you, who is more pathetic, the god
that needs to be worshipped or those who worship the needy
don't put such mockery up on the internet. It hurts my heart
to see such a sacred and horrible event be made fun of in
the way that you have. Why do you feel that you have put up
such a site on the internet? Is it funny to you? Cause it
certainly isn't funny to me and many around me. I makes me
really quite sick to see such a site up.
you would like to think of it in such way, then that is none
other but your choice, however, for me and others like me,
it would be very pleasing if this site was to be removed.
Thank you for you time
Sharlene, if you
promise me that you'll keep your Christianity to yourself
and no longer share your beliefs with people other than those
who agree with you, I will consider no longer speaking aloud
of my views. We should probably be getting the same commitment
from all those who believe differently than you or me as well.
Yes, that's the
deal. Together you and I will figure out a way to discourage
the sharing of opposing views that could possibly offend those
whose hurt feelings are a priority over the exchanging of
I think that we
have stumbled upon a new, wonderful way of life that'll end
hurt feelings as we know it!
I'll start addressing
does this say about your self esteem?"
do you find yourself cool for blaspheming the beliefs of others.
What does this say about your self esteem? Usually, those
with a very low self esteem attack the beliefs of others.
Rather than mocking Christ, try to find out more about him.
Maybe you'll find true fullfillment in your life. I will pray
for you that Christ will reveal himself to you.
Mark, you've got
your esteem-judging scale all backwards. It is those with
a very low self esteem that confront no one, hold back their
opinions and hang their head in shame when their beliefs are
challenged. A confident person stands up for what he believes,
opens himself up to any line of questioning and possibly even
grants a forum for the opposition's opinion to be seen.
Your beliefs require
you to be meek and compliant. Pride and self confidence are
discouraged by God. It's all part of the deal when you choose
to live your life worshipping another.
Perhaps it is you
who needs to learn more about Him.
"...maybe the World is "school"
don't think it's hate mail you need - I'm pretty certain somewhere
along the line someone or some organisation who claimed to
be acting in God's name, caused you considerable pain. I can't
see why you otherwise would have the depth of ill-feeling
that you have to have to be capable of running the website
you do......and I am deeply saddened by the thought that someone
has done you so much damage, as well as by the fact that you
are in your turn apparently finding satisfaction in the distress
experienced by some "surfers" who stumble onto your site.
fully anticipate that you'll mock me for sending this email,
but I feel I have to - I need to know that at least I tried
to explain to you that God doesn't reside in the Bible or
in any organised religion..... that's where the human element
came in; people trying to make sense of something spiritual
in terms which people with little education or sophistication
could understand, and affected as is still the case today
by people's needs to have "their own" version of something
taken as the most important - e.g. Catholicism, Presbyterianism;
believe it's human greed for control over others which leads
to dogma - but I do believe that Jesus lived, tried to tell
us us how to get closer to God, and died for loving Him and
us so much.
wish you could believe in God.....I know He exists, and I
know He will be there for you if ever you decide to allow
Him into your life. Remember, it's not God - who has no meanness
in Him - who causes all the terrible things which happen in
this world.....He gave us free will, just as a good human
parent gives their child (otherwise we'd grow up slaves!)
and I expect His heart breaks over some of the things we choose
don't know the reasons why we have this life - but I suspect
it is to do with learning about good and evil, just as we
send our kids to school to learn about things - maybe the
World is "school" for souls??!? - and it's my own opinion
that the most valuable lesson we can learn is that kindness,
compassion and tolerance are essential components of a harmonious
society - I sound like an advert. for something there, don't
I? - although I also believe there is a place for saying "no,
that won't be tolerated" if not saying so colludes with someone
who is making a monster of themself and threatening others'
if you read this far, I thank you for YOUR tolerance.
I am going to explain
to you a reason other than the "caused me considerable pain"
diagnoses you've offered up.
I think that the
concepts of God, Heaven, angels, "Jesus Loves You" bumper
stickers and the everlasting human soul are funny concepts
to write about. I've seen both sides, and our inability to
deal with reality I find riveting.
I can assure you
that the only "considerable pain" happened when I had to accept
my mortality. It's a hard thing to grasp when you've been
anticipating eternal paradise for so long, BUT the pay back
is tenfold; a lifting of confusion, a heightened appreciation
for life, and good-bye to the overbearing repression of creativity
which was probably my biggest ordeal.
I will also admit
to you that Christianity for me as a child was terrific! Christianity
fits in perfectly with a child's perception of the world.
Bad people go to Hell, and the good people go to Heaven. I
didn't know about any other way of thinking. There's Christianity
and everyone else is lost. I was a Christian, so I needn't
consider anything else. My paradise was waiting.
It was when I got
old enough to think for myself that things started to not
make sense. I was having a hard time pretending that God was
speaking to me, and I to Him. I couldn't see any difference
between worshipping God or worshipping an empty space above
my head. The outcome was the same, only the later was easier
Do not interpret
this site as ill feeling. Interpret it as comedy, life experience
and a willingness to explain a change of heart.
It still shocks
me that there are so many who don't see the outrageousness
in it all. And that makes for excellent writing material.
