Funny and Horrific. At the same time!

So today, I had to good fortune to learn about "Chick Tracts". Contrary to what you might initially think, these have nothing to do with women or about tracts of land. No, instead these long comic strips are of the proselytizing variety... I should really just let the work speak for itself. Here is a gem about roleplaying:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Wow, huh! That was crazy. For citation's sake visit the original
page
. At first it reads like a deliciously funny play off of the 1980s
fears about roleplaying... But then... around about where the gal dies, you
relize that its not really all that funny. Oh, and also its being serious...

So in this vein we found a few other chick tracts that are good:


  1. Not Even Christian Rock is good Rock
  2. Love the Jews, lest you get smited
  3. Islam, the I is for evIl!


Pretty crazy stuff... The ultimate chick tract isn't even written by Jack
Chick! You too should learn about the dangers of Galactus!.

I think my team probably lost half a day to this insanity. Its pretty crazy
stuff... I'll try not to insult anyone, but everyone has their crazies...

Oh, and here's a great video about MORMONISM!. Evidently the native americans were once white and from israel, who knew?? The mormons, thats who. In case it wasn't obvious, BTW, I'm not trying to hurt morman faith in any way, but the video is hilarious (I have no idea how closely it matches with their beliefs and a similar video could be made about christanity, probably even more ridiculous!)

You didn't know about Chick Tracts before? There was an ancient, decrepit lady at OU who would set up a table in the Union during Jesus week to distribute them. I took one of each of her Chick Tracts, so somewhere or other, I have ~20 of them.

They're creepy and funny! And kinda depressing...

Ben said...

Yes, all those things are true...

I've seen Chick Tracts before, I just always thought they were one offs... And I didn't realize there was such a crazy variety of them...

Can you blame him for wanting her to burn the books? They're D&D, FFS. Real Christians play Story Games.

Now, Go Play!

For whatever reason, the pictures don't seem to be showing up anymore - but the link still worked.

Ben said...

Well... I fixed the images, but that might be a losing proposition... Seems like they might move the images to prevent direct linking... I'll see about just grabbing all those images...

Ben said...

Ok, it was a big fight between me, picasa and blogger, but I've got all the images uploaded to the blog, so they should be good now. I'm no longer direct linking, which chick's site seems to be activately breaking, so hopefully we're good now.

Chick Tracts are awesome. They're the Perry Bible Fellowship of serious crazy people.

Personally, I think they all wanted Marcie^W Black Leaf dead because she never put in for pizza night.

Ben said...

Hehehe, awesome. Definitely a fitting punishment for those who do not pitch in.

Why was I never invited to join a coven?

Ben said...

Obviously, you weren't ready yet for the real power. Isn't it clear to you yet?? You're no Debbie. Even in the midst of all those christians at the end there, she was more of a player than you were at your peak! Now go cry, I have real roleplayers to teach mind bondage to.

I couldn't get the mormonism youTube video to open, but if its the poorly animated one, I've seen it. The scary thing is that its 90% accurate.

Another good into to mormonism is the South Park episode "All about the Mormons." Its about 95% accurate about how the church was founded.

As a side note, I formally requested that my name be removed from their Church.

Ben said...

Yep its definitely the one your thinking of :).

Its crazy! The South Park episode was also really funny...
