Bush? Obama? I ask for both

Bush? Obama? I ask for both because I can't figure out if this is pro "liberal" or against it. They seem to be crucifying the public school system just as Jesus was. Jesus had to die for out sins to be forgiven, so it's a good thing, right? Also the "liberals" are nailing "the body of christ" to public schools, wouldn't that mean that they're trying to put Jesus into the schools?

 

Or do all the people represent the jews who supposedly wanted Jesus dead?

 

 

Why do christian fail so much at communication.

 

Also, whoever drew this needs to take an art class.

This is too stupid to be

This is too stupid to be serious, so I'll take it way to literally and analyze it:

I like how the artist depicts atheists monopolizing critical thinking. They'll get the body of Christ; we'll get the gays, critical thinking and the ACLU. But, we have to hang out with the wolf, the sorceress and the drag queen. The wolf seems at least partly domesticated since it is around so many people, so that won't be too bad. I used to play sorceress in Diablo 2. So if I understand this correctly, she'll keep the godless and the gays entertained with her teleportation and firewalls. We have to be with the beaurocrat though. I really don't like the education beaurocracy in California. Maybe the wolf or the sorceress can scare that guy away. I don't know why the Islam conversion guy is chillin' with the atheists and gays though. He seems to be pals with the "Atheism rules" guy and he seems to love gambling or maybe DND. You'de think that he would be much more in line culturally with the homophobic, anti-atheist, evolution denying Christian fundy.

"You say that it is your custom to burn widows. Very well. We also have a custom: when men burn a woman alive, we tie a rope around their necks and we hang them. Build your funeral pyre; beside it, my carpenters will build a gallows. You may follow your custom. And then we will follow ours."

Evolution, I imagine.  But

Evolution, I imagine.  But possibly Obama.

 

I love cartoons like this, because it shows how silly the far right theistic movement is.

 

1) Atheists are bad because they use critical thought?

2) Trans-gendered people are bad?  What if your kid is trans-gendered?

3) Muslims and Atheists are pals?

4) Sorcery is actually something they spend time worrying about?

 

Honestly, the picture looks like a good place to live, to me.  People of all backgrounds unite with wolves and monkeys using critical thinking to drive fundamentalist theism out of public schools?  Sweet.  Maybe the sorceress can cast some sort of banishment spell!

 

Everything makes more sense now that I've stopped believing.

I really scratch my head

I really scratch my head when I see christians suggesting, directly or subtly, that atheism is the pawn of the moslem. Is there a dumber idea? They can't have much faith in their god if they think that a moslem can convert an atheist while a christian can't. I wonder if moslems say the same crap where they have the majority.

This is stupid enough to be

This is stupid enough to be a Poe, but blessedcause.org looks serious. 

- I'm guessing the artist is trying to say that atheists are destroying Christianity under the pretext of critical thinking.

- The monkey is probably referring to evolution. I don't know what the wolf means.

- Why are there plants growing out of the trans gender person's head?

- The 'militant homosexual' appears to be 'satisfying' himself, with one hand on Jesus's thigh, and his other hand partly down his own pants.

- The artist seems to believe that all of these groups are united against Christianity, or at least, he's delusional in some way under that in-group, out-group mentality. Thus, the Muslim and the atheist are both contributing to the crucifixion of Christ, but they seem to be chummy with each other. The atheist has his hand on the Muslim's shoulder, and the Muslim appears to be showing the atheist dice, possibly symbolizing 'chance' and 'accident.' 

Edit:

- The cross says 'public school' on it, so this is the death of Christ in public schools. No more mandatory prayers. 'Under God' in the Pledge of Allegiance. Stuff like that.

Our revels now are ended. These our actors, | As I foretold you, were all spirits, and | Are melted into air, into thin air; | And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, | The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces, | The solemn temples, the great globe itself, - Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve, | And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, | Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff | As dreams are made on, and our little life | Is rounded with a sleep. - Shakespeare

I don't think that is Jesus. I think it is a schoolboy. It looks too small to be a man. Even with the "body of christ" tshirt.

 

Insert pedophilia connotations from the "Militant Homosexuality"?

 

I'm just making guesses though here.

Theism is why we can't have nice things.

 ...Why is there a

 ...Why is there a sorceress, but nobody being blasted to fiery bits by her devil magic? 

And why has the artist left out the cattle mutilating aliens that we are hiding?

And why, for the love of Baphomet, is the muslim holding D6s instead of D20s???

 

This is an outrage.

 I'm afraid it's not a poe. They have a valid website, and even forums. http://www.blessedcause.org/forums/ see?

Hmmm, so maybe it's an innocent, Christian, adolescent grade schooler, who's being brainwashed and corrupted (metaphorically crucified) by the socialist liberal, deceitful, God-hating, Darwinist, gay American public school system? (especially in California)

This is an outrage.

He isn't making an attack or save roll. He is rolling to determine damage for his +1 icy burst great sword. Mohamed gets a sweet 2D6+1 enchantment+3 STR+ 1 frost damage every time his DND character hits. That is why he is rolling 2D6 in the drawing. Being Muslim, he isn't into crucifictions like the atheists, wolves, chimpanzees and gays are. So apparently he is busy playing DND instead; like the atheists and pagans taught him to.

Considering the look they are giving each other, I imagine it is some sort of skill check.  Roll to resist conversion?

OH oh oh wait! I think I might have figured out the wolf thing.

 

 

Remember those Republican attack ads about John Kerry wanting to "throw your children to the wolves"?
