Catholics Aren't Christian?
I've been hearing this from evangifundies for decades, but none was willing to (or able to) explain this "Catholics aren't Christian" deal to me.
Finally, I followed a link to a website, chick.com, where I didn't find Jesus, but...
I found Chick!
From the Biography of Jack Chick...
From early childhood, it was obvious that Jack Chick had an ability to draw. He even failed the first grade because he was so busy drawing airplanes in battle. As he grew, Jack was constantly drawing, and honing skills that God would later use in a great way.
While in high school, none of the Christians would have anything to do with him because of his bad language. They all agreed not to witness to him, convinced that he was the last guy on earth who would ever accept Jesus Christ.
To make a long story short, Jack Chick found Jesus, used his drawing skills to make these little multi-fold "Come to Jesus" things, and has made a living selling them for the last 40 years.
Evidently, people buy sets of these "Chick Tracts" and either hand them out or leave them where Satan's Most Wanted can find them: restrooms, grocery store carts, and waiting rooms...
Regular readers of this blog know that I'm not exactly a fan of organized religion (because of its institutional ability to quash our inherent quest for enlightenment through pure research), but even I have to marvel at a movement based on the premise that Catholics aren't Christian.
Whatever happened to...?
"Upon this rock I will build my church."
And just who, Jack, is manning your version of the Pearly Gates?
THUS ENDETH TODAY'S SERMON.
Go forth today and ponder the ability of man to rationalize his complete denial of the parent corporation by voicing his complete acceptance of one of its many subsidiaries.
And be sure to ask these "Chick Christians" one question: Who's minding the celestial store?
I mean it, damn it!
