Been a while since I was at your site, anyway good work with the comic. I think that is by far the best thing you offer and I wish you would work on it more frequently.
I've been wondering though. What are you going to do the day (IF) Abrahamic religions fall through and are no longer mainstream? Personally I think any belief that anybody panders as absolute truth is obscene no matter what it is. Philosophy is one thing, but when men tell other men what absolute truth is I start seeing problems regardless of the message.
Making fun of it is like shooting fish in a barrel but I will say that humor is a more deadly weapon than the sword at times, and as such I'd suggest you complete the triad of mocking these complete by adding a Jewish version as well. Honestly I think you'll cause more static by doing that than the Muhammad one.
Good luck with your ventures.and it's nice to see you haven't gotten censored yet.
You're seriously asking what I'm going to do on the day Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity, Islam) fall to the wayside? When they no longer have a grip hold on human minds around the globe? Wow! I suppose that the thousand year old dust that was once me will be cursing the world from the grave! I'm supposing my decomposed skeleton might very well sneer angrily at the ceiling of its casket and tonguelessly attmpt to scream "NOW WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO?!?!"
Excellent question, No-me.
Yes, it is like shooting fish in a barrel. Like fish in a barrel with a hole in the bottom and thousands upon thousands of fish gushing into it every minute of every day with no end in sight. It's like shooting immortal fish in a barrel. That's exactly what it's like, No-me.
Jewish people have a sense of humor about themselves. Christians and Muslims do not. That's why your idea is a bad one. What's the Jewish version of Jesus dressup anyhow? Please share, because I can't picture it being anything other than something you'd see on a KKK poster. Is that what you're imagining?
Thank you though for the comic compliment. I'm really trying to get it going again, but lately my demands for hilarity are too great. So until then it has to hold steady.

Bob, I find your website of dressing Jesus, to be offensive not only to me but to God Himself. All the sins that you've done in secret that only you and God know about, Jesus paid in blood for you to be forgiven if you accept Him. Why would you not fear God the Creator of Heaven and Earth? Who died for you? You even have female items to clothe Jesus.....When did you stop knowing that God was a loving, wonderful, benevolent Father?
Proverbs 14:9 Fools mock at sin.
Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that will he also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will the Spirit reap everlasting life.
Romans 10:9-10 That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Matt 12:31-32 Therefore I tell you, every sin and blasphemy (every evil, abusive, [a]injurious speaking, or indignity against sacred things) can be forgiven men, but blasphemy against the Holy Spirit shall not and [b]cannot be forgiven.
And whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but whoever speaks against the Spirit, the Holy One, will not be forgiven, either in this world and age or in the world and age to come.
Bob, I hope you receive Jesus and be saved. And please take down this site. We can be doing things that we don't know the consequences to. Please receive this message.
In His Love,
La Tonya Herrod
ps Hey Bob, God gave you your artistry gift. Ask Him for more jobs. He will prosper you. He has an assignment for you and that gift. God loves you.
I got your email a few days ago, read it over and had something happen that flooded my heart. Something I think might interest you a whole lot. As we both know, there is no truth more dependable than truth from the heart. Scientists say truth comes from a test tube. Schoolteachers say that it's hidden somewhere in textbooks, or the library, while court judges insist it's in "proof" & "evidence." But we real human-beings know exactly where the truth is. *Hand over my heart* Here. Right precisely here.
So after reading your email and your final postscript about asking god for more jobs and he will prosper me, I stood back from my computer, shut my eyes and searched my heart. I studied that egg backwards & forwards, inside & out. It was almost like standing back, away from the box and looking at it with fresh, new eyes. La Tonya, in that moment, I swear to you nothing felt more absolute, more actual, more TRUE than God being totally, utterly make-believe. Nothing more obvious than god (all the gods ever) a construct of our imaginative, impulsive, imperfect brains. And that feeling came from deep within my heart.
Now here's the amazing part! After officially denouncing any last shred of the possibility of god I got emailed a job opportunity. But that's not all. The very next day, another job came in and each of these two freelance jobs made their deposits into my account so I could get started right away! I'll tell you, the whole way home I took every available opportunity to mentally X out the Christian god from each and every individual spot he occupied in my mind. Then my phone rang... on the subway train! And who was it on the other end but the manager of Rainbows & Triangles in Chelsea placing a sizable order for more Jesus Dressup fridge magnets because they were sold out! They needed them dropped off right away! Cash in-hand! I was beside myself.
Throughout my life I have been rewarded again and again for the choice I've made to reject the poisonous, mind-retardent belief in supreme beings, but it wasn't until your letter that such immediate results made everything so clear. The heart never lies.
I thank you, La Tonya,
|“Have you ever thought of this? What human being would even create a faith like Christianity”
"The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it?" Jeremiah 17:9 Just because there are other individuals that are ignorant of God's Word, which He will judge the world against, that agree with your blasphemy, doesn't make it right. "For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his soul?"
The funniest thing is people are searching for the secret to Life and it's hidden everywhere. The Bible, God's instructions can be found in hotels, schools, thrift stores, the dollar store and is the number one selling book of all time and people are going to regret that they didn't pick one up and read it. And you will be one of them. So normal Bob, I'm pressing on, cause I don't want an ordinary life. Proverbs says "The fool has said in his heart, there is no God." You are in for a major disappointment. Eternity is too long too be wrong.. There is a day appointed that will befall you and your heart will fail you. "God is not a man that He should lie nor the Son of man that He should repent". But as long as you're breathing there is hope, "if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your HEART that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. Hope to see you in heaven.
One last thing, since you are helping satan devour souls, he will help your business, but when he doesn't need you anymore, or the appointed time comes he will devour you too because he hates that he has already been judged and humans that are still alive still have a chance to be redeemed. So that's why he comes to steal, kill, and destroy. Steal your faith in God, then kill your mortal body, thus destroying your soul. But God is not willing that any man perish but that all come to repentance. God will be there for you on that day, but don't wait too late because God will not strive with man forever. We don't know our expiration date.....
Have you ever thought of this? What human being would even create a faith like Christianity where they would have to confess their sins, live by virtues, and deny themselves and if they didn't accept this so called made up faith, go to eternal hell? Why wouldn't they create a faith where you have a god that let's you do whatever you want? Fasting, prayer, forgiving your enemy.... no one but God would create a faith like this. Now maybe you have seen people living religion... but not the Faith of God. Who even would say "I am Living Water." or the "I am the Way, Truth and the Life, no one comes to the Father except thru Me?" No one would say these statements. "I am the Bread of Life". Only the Son of God, who could prove it, and has and will... But the offer still stands, as long as you have breath...
In His Love,
Oh, I get it. When the heart doesn't believe in God its a deceitful, wicked thing! BUT if it's telling you to believe in Jesus, then it's honest and good. How convenient.
La Tonya, let me assure you humans would most definitely make a faith like Christianity. A faith where all that's required is belief then eternal hell is no longer an issue. SIgn me up! In fact, at that point it ends up being exactly what the wicked heart desires most for everybody else. Everybody different will pay... Forever!! Had you ever noticed no one ever thinks they're the one going to hell? It's always everybody else, especially those who think differently. How could it sound any more human than that? Heaven for La Tonya, and hell for everybody else. Your emails to me scream with satisfaction and anticipation of this.
Your belief gives you the power to condemn others. To email strangers and damn them with the power of God at your back! And you ask what would a human have to gain by making up this faith? With this faith you get to be a know-it-all, doubters be damned.
The religion of a true living God would not begin with having to worship him. What actual supreme being would give a rat's ass about being adored and worshipped by his creations? I know adults who've outgrown such a pathetic behavioral trait. Can you think of any other scenario where the inventor demands worship from his invention, and it's noble in any way? But the God you worship requires worship. How could it be any more human, and any less supreme than that, La Tonya?!?
But you want the biggest clue it's manmade? The scapegoat. Living by virtues, being sin-free are not requirements at all. In fact, it's taught that the effort of good deeds does not grant entry to heaven! Not at all. Instead, what's most important to God is belief. Believe and submit. Talk about a faith custom-built by people! All it needs now is an ultimate punishment of some sort for anyone who doubts.
Oh wait! It's got that too.
Why would any god discourage doubt in any way? Especially on a planet filled with liars? Doubting what people tell you is one of the most valuable lessons to teach a child. Yet, your faith's punishment for doubt is eternal suffering. Not believing isn't tolerated. You simply must believe or die. Kim Jong Ill has the exact same policy in North Korea, and last I checked he was a human who invented a replica of your faith for himself.
La Tonya, you should watch the North Korea documentaries that are available on YouTube. You'll get to see how your faith is exactly the sort of religion humans invent.
