God and Son

Poking the bloated corpse of religion with a pointy stick to hear it fart.

In 2001 Jedi became recognised in the UK as a religion. It was recorded so many times in the national census that it made its mark.

True, a religion written into the census is not ‘official‘… so that being said, and keeping with the ‘official‘ view… Christianity, Judaism, Islam… also not official…

Anyway, Jedi being used as a religion is a great way to show that a fictional story (Star Wars) has, in several years, gained a following of fans so great, that it has a religion formed around it.

Give it time, I wouldn’t be surprised if one day the Jedi Religion history may become blurred and the religion becomes as fixed as Christianity… People will argue that Star Wars was written as an analogy of Jedi faith, and that it came before the movies… and so it would build up, until it becomes believed as a factual, real thing….

Pretty much how I imagine Christianity and all other religions started out…

Anyway, a break from the norm… and as Chris Woods has been kind enough to let me use his work in various G&S cartoons, I’d like to bring your attention to his new project – SANDSTORM – and I hope that you can help him fund it.

This isn’t money to support a church roof or to line the Pope’s pocket, or to fight against dirty gays ruining nice white Christian morals… this is for Chris… This is so he can move up to the next level, and the reason I’m behind this particular exhibit is because it shows how a little story has become so very important in peoples lives… and yet this one we know is fictional…. for now… until history twists and turns and the truth gets lost in time… and people will talk of those wars of past as if they were true.

If a fictional movie has grown this much of a following in such a short time, maybe people will see, with the help of SANDSTORM, how the whole religion thing has the same roots… the same Chinese whispers… and finally a few people may start questioning the sanity…

So please, show your support and help raise the Chris Woods roof!!!

    Thanks man! This almost makes up for The War of 1812. Yes, I know we were both on the same side…

      I like your art. A lot.

      The style, the message, it just works for me. If I can put more people in your direction to see what I mean, so they can enjoy it too, then that’s cool by me.

      Honestly, the detail is phenomenal.

    ‘Chinese Whispers’ was the working title of ‘Careless Whispers’ by George Michael.
