goD in the Comics
I used to poke fun at BC for Johnny Hart's's blatant xtian ramblings. But they seem to have toned it down since Johnny hart passed on in 2007. For the last week or so we've had Jumpstart's little infants asking questions about gd. Today's was so funny because it implied that some god exists that actually has the power to dial a phone and call the police, clearly mistaking parents for a higher power. We had some godheads in Zippy last month as well. I wonder what other people feel about using comics in this way? For me, it clearly answers the question of the existence an imaginary creature that a large part of our culture has adopted and empowered to guide and control their lives. I just keep wondering what purpose it serves them?
