I'm sure there are many people who have worked this magic with band-aids. Then immediately purchased an empty box, the evil scamps. Sadly, you have to count them these days. The number on the box is unreliable.

@HiEv:
I wasn't suggesting there was a link between morals and Christ. I was suggesting there was a connection between morals and stories. I was trying to make sense out of an assumption by a guest named adolf on March 24. That being this is a Christian webcomic. I suggested maybe he believed it was Christian because the author was Christian. Then I gave an example of several ways the art could have a christian influence without directly arguing Carlos.g was Christian, but rather by suggesting my work had a relation to Christian theism. You're right! It was a dick move, but I didn't want to accuse him of being a Christian without condemning myself. Because, that would be wrong.

After he reveled that he was a devout agnostic, I followed up with a joke that "we can't all be perfect." which comes from a classic movie called 'Some like it hot.' wherein a millionaire justifies falling in love with a man disguised as a woman.

I admitted I was shocked that he wasn't Christian because his work prominently features demons and isn't a profane work of anti religious propaganda. The statement 'It definitely has morals...' is also an old noir joke of sorts. As a matter of fact, it was like saying he has two strikes against him but at least he's black<---hence noir, the joke builds on the 'some like it hot' reference. I apologize," if these words do offend," but I've gotten use to watching old Three Stooges and Abbot & Costello fare as a visual media student and it's hard to kick the habit of using the period dialog.

I then tried to assure Carlos that I wasn't calling him an amoral beast. And, explained the bare minimum requirement for being a Christian. In other words, even if he was amoral he could still be considered a Christian by virtue of semantic definition. Arguing that the standard for being a minister are much higher is kind of a joke because those three beliefs mentioned are the minimum standard for being a minister. Of course, one looses their credibility if they don't learn enough to be a chaplain, and becoming a chaplain does require certification and training. The military offers a chaplain program as well, so if anyone was interested in serving their country for the grace of God they could do it.

Carlos.g then admitted that he had many philosophical and theological discussions with pastors, and that he wasn't a stranger to religion. Before admitting that he didn't see the humor in the situation (I'm assuming maybe it's possible). And, he believed it strange that I equated the stories having a moral within as a confirmation of having a Christian influence.

I responded that all dogs go to heaven, and all rocks too. As long as you have principals that essentially state you love all, trust a few, do wrong to none, and accept the good, then you are doing right by whatever everywhere spirit you believe in.

Adolf then admitted he wanted to make a blowjob joke.

Carlos then admited he wanted a blowjob joke too.

In my religion, the highest honor you can bestow upon another person is to introduce them to Jesus Christ. However, I will admit suggesting what you do with him, or that knowledge afterwards, has nothing to do with me. Obviously, Jesus isn't going to just allow someone to give him sexual favors without his permission. But the hypothetical idea of a potentially awkward and compromising position was intended. For humor's sake it was waaaay better than a joke about a 911 operator telling an off duty police officer to make sure the victim was dead, then hearing a gunshot over the phone, followed by "Okay, now what?"

Also, Just because Jesus Christ is featured prominently in the most popular book in the world, does not mean everyone has heard of him. Especially in this day and age where almost everyone is literate. I'm sure there are still people who haven't heard of him. And, unlike Jesus, Thor has multibillion dollar globally released feature length movies to spread the word of his character. And, everyone knows Zeus already kicked Odin's ass. However, beyond that, I see no reason to perpetuate the autocratic headship of a religious movement whose leaders were afraid of becoming a members of the castrati when Jesus, in fact, was willing to follow through with whatever torture he was going to be subjugated too.

My religion dictates that I introduce people to Jesus. Whatever you choose to do beyond that is your decision.

@Carlos.g:
I never had a confirmation bias that you were a Christian. I honestly don't see you as less of a person because of it. All stories have morals, even those of Batman's Joker. I feel that as long as you follow the Carnegie rules:

1) Do not condemn, criticize, complain, or otherwise confront others with the truth, unless you are prepared to face the consequences.

2) Show genuine interest, concern, and appreciation for the accomplishments, opinions, and ideas of others.

And,
3)take necessary and reasonable precaution to prevent social, spiritual, psychological, and physical harm through coercion, manipulation, and undue pressure, or believe the use of fear, obligation, guilt, hate, propaganda, or profane language is unacceptable.

Then, you are doing right by the whatever universal presence you subscribe to.

There are exceptions to these rules of course, if someone acts in bad faith, or uses words like $#!7, F**K!, or damn it! in vain they are ultimately harming themselves. Bad faith applies to people who identify themselves with a role they were assigned, or who would punish you for not sharing their just world hypothesis. For instance, a person who believes you are being disrespectful for paraphrasing, stating facts out of context, or expressing an opinion contrary to their comparison level of what's right or who's right would be acting in bad faith as well.

@Carlos.g:

Trust me, I'm educated, I am considered an amoral beast. Being Christian just means you believe three things.

1) There is a God.

2) Jesus was his son.

3) Jesus was sacrificed for the sins of mankind.

You don't even have to believe he returned from the dead or that he was something other than human. That's about it. Everything else is just a bunch of connotative guidelines, that are literally subject to change, based on the whims of whoever wants to use it to their best advantage, regardless of the similarity of content between bibles. Laws are important, but no one studies law to become a lawyer they study law to become leaders. And, until about 200 years ago, being a carpenter and being a surgeon were considered the same profession. So, even if Jesus wasn't the child of a divine being, he was still raised to be a service provider, by a man in a similar profession, without sabotage or molestation. Not to mention, being the genius that he was, Jesus had an interest in law from the time he was a child.

I'm sure the standards for becoming a minister or a chaplain are much higher and require certifications and training, but those three beliefs are the minimum standard for being a Christian. I should also mention that you can convert to Isalm or even become a nazarite with a single phrase so long as you commit to the dietary requirements.

We can't all be perfect. (that's a joke)

I don't know what to say. It's not exactly a profane anti Christian comic. It definitely has morals.

@Carlos.g:
Maybe it is Christian in that it is made by a Christian. I consider myself a Christian, and I was dedicated to God, therefore all artwork I have created are Christian works of art. Plus, much of the art history I studied was centered around Christianity and iconoclasm. Therefore, I have also studied under the Christian masters... And some of the best looking demons and monsters were developed by monks.

Not to mention I believe in capitalism's potential to create a free economy. By supporting capitalism I am also supporting calvinism, and the puritan work ethic, thereby making all work that I do the work of God. Also, if the highest honor one can bestow unto another is to introduce them to Jesus Christ, by acting in accordance with Dudeism I am loving my neighbor as myself and loving God with all my heart, mind, body and soul. . . all while I search for something that will really bring the room together, and solve a mystery of my own design, as I negotiate with people who are as messed up and artificial as I am.

Ironically enough if your character didn't change and you allowed others to dictate your role it would be an act in bad faith. . . based entirely on 8-bit philosophy.

@console control tower: Maybe she couldn't tell, or realize she wasn't flying, because the muscles under her arms allow her to flap her wings the way it allows a bodybuilder like Hollywood Hulk Hogan or The Governator to wiggle his chesticles.

I mean I can do it because I'm an endomorph, but it it's much more impressive when you have superhero muscles instead of bulk.

@Carlos.g:
I appreciate the early warning about the upcoming infrequency of updates. Thank you. But, for the love of all that is holy, don't ever quote the 'Space Jam' thanksgiving theme song without making more Lola Bunny references... and I want a dozen of those 8x10 references on fchan STAT. ;D

@motork:
That is a possibility. Thank you for sharing. I very much appreciate it.

Either way, I'm thankful the author didn't kill her off like they did Professor Hercules in 'God's not Dead.' I honestly felt the man's death was completely unnecessary. And, it would have made for a better story had he lived.
