And down goes Westboro. If only this were where I live.
If only such protesters listened to logic. I guess conservatives in washington state aren’t all inbred morons like in other places
It’s a satire, not a morality play :\
We can dream, though.
All shellfish is a sin to god….? Did any of them ever think that maybe it wasnt god, but perhaps a corrupt extremist who wrote the new testament?
That one’s actually in the Old Testament – see Leviticus 11:9-12.
I think it was because they didn’t really know how to properly clean and cook shellfish back then, so they wrote a law into the Bible (or, if you’re Christian, God gave them that law to write into the Bible) so people wouldn’t get sick from undercooked fish.
It’s not relevant any more now that it’s possible to do it properly, but the really fundamentalist Christians always pick and choose which Biblical laws remain relevant even if the conditions which inspired those laws have changed.
So fundamentalist Christians choose witch laws to follow based on which ones are still relevant today, violently protesting against those who don’t follow all the most backwards and poorly thought out laws and ignoring ones that are a personal inconvenience for them? Soon those people will be citing the bible for everything but saying they don’t believe in god. No wonder they’re called fundamentalists, because they are total fundaments to those of us who look to the present instead of obsessively living in the ancient past.
And thus begins what is possibly my favorite little arc in the comic. Well, technically it began a few strips back, but I absolutely love Llewellyn’s “anti-protest” signs.
The argument is this: “You say one Leviticus scripture applies. You don’t apply this one. Thus, you need to say either both or neither applies, or you’re a hypocrite.” And that’s a perfectly valid argument. Therefore, I’ll go on a limb and say that I apply none of the Old Testament. Thus, I need to come up with a New Testament Scripture that denounces gay marriage. Here are a few: Romans 1:26,27, Revelation 22:15, Matthew 19:4, 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, Jude 1:7 (Here “strange flesh” means “flesh of the same kind”.) I know it seems stupid to leave a comment like this on a comic site, but I couldn’t stand seeing Christians painted as illogical hypocrites.
