God and Son

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

Was he the bad guy?

Got any change?

Don’t panic… but please leave feedback on this style. I’m just trying it out, although the standard square format will still be the main format… This style here would be used on ‘special’ occasions…

Or maybe Sunday Specials?

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.

It’s not what you think…

Explain to me, if you really must believe in a God, why this isn’t what’s really happening…
