God and Son

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

Wait…

Never butt into an argument unless you know what the argument is about…

Deuteronomy 13:6-10
New International Version (NIV)
If your very own brother, or your son or daughter, or the wife you love, or your closest friend secretly entices you, saying, “Let us go and worship other gods” (gods that neither you nor your ancestors have known, gods of the peoples around you, whether near or far, from one end of the land to the other), do not yield to them or listen to them. Show them no pity. Do not spare them or shield them. You must certainly put them to death. Your hand must be the first in putting them to death, and then the hands of all the people. Stone them to death, because they tried to turn you away from the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.

Which is quite lovely, isn’t it?

Tricked Out

Excuses, excuses…

20130428-125530.jpg

Now, here’s the thing…

Many years ago I hung out with a band (Picasso/Wasp Factory). A great group of people quite fresh on the scene. They had friends in the various arts, so we all mingled and did our bit.

It was early enough on that some of these people were only just breaking into the bigger side of their arty business. All quite normal but artsy people, and one of, if not the happiest times of my early years.

They wrote a fanzine (The Sting) along with a couple of us outside of the band, including Eddie Izzard, Dominic Holland and me. Eddie wrote ‘Pants Cat‘ and I wrote ‘The God Letters‘. Eddies was about a cat in pants (and was obviously brilliant), and mine was about Stan Satan and how he was always being blamed for everything. My very first religious satire was a written text that became today’s ‘Tricked Out‘ cartoon.

So there’s a little history for you.

Superpowers

The most important characters in the bible are Satan and Judas. Fact.

20130429-204033.jpg

Without Judas, Jesus would not have been betrayed, and his ultimate (ha!) sacrifice wouldn’t have happened. A betrayer was needed. Then they tore the betrayer apart for betraying Jesus… Such a lovely way to repay someone for such a pivotal job.

Without Satan in Hell, then what has god… or rather… What has the church got to threaten us and keep us in our places? Yup… Nothing. To keep people from questioning you or going up against you, you must have a good deterrent… and that goes doubly so in a corrupt or power hungry situation.

Back when religion started, there had to be a bad guy to scare people towards the power hungry religious leaders… so the Devil was required.

Without Judas or Satan, the whole bible falls apart. That generally only happens in really poorly written story books, because the writers can’t think of a cleverer way to emphasise how good the good guy is, or how to make the good guy stand out.

It’s the same with fictitious superheroes. Without villains, there is no need for Superman or Batman… In fact without Superman or Batman, there wouldn’t be villains who kept threatening the human race just so they could get at Superman or Batman… Which puts a great twist on things…

Without the Devil, God is powerless…

BUT, and more importantly…

Without God, there would be no Devil… No nemesis…Everyone would be fine.

Jesus, Muhammad & the Beer & Bacon Festival

20130426-200711.jpg

Yup… Muhammad (the self proclaimed prophet) was married many, many times… Making even Henry the Eighth look like a virginal choirboy… One of Mo’s wives was 9 year old Aisha… WAIT… It’s not that bad… They HAD known each other for a while and WAITED until she was 9 to consummate the marriage…
