Top Notch
Posted by Some Anonymous Whim Reader

To SAWR#1,
you are contributing to one of the reasons this media outlet is "top notch." That's right one of the reasons is, we the readers get to post comments directly to articles and toons with out the prejudices of an editor filtering out opinions he/she disagrees with, and if someone really disagrees they can attempt to go through the proper channels and get into the Vent section.
hope this helps.

woah. As cute and funny as the interaction with the easter bunny is, the last 4 frames are hatred propoganda. (intentional or not)

Look, he puts the blame for ruining a childs perception of easter on Jesus. Then the reader is left feeling justice when Jesus gets racked by the rejected bible. It's false witness. And many are too busy laughing and saying "yeah! Alright!" that they don't realize that they are cheering at the persecution of Jesus. I'm really amazed that you don't see that.

Actually jackass you don't seem to realize that what it is saying is that kids are so used to the candy side of easter that should they not get candy and have to face the real religious side of Easter, they're going to be disappointed. We've made Easter that way. hell i'm not religious and i can see taht, its along the same lines as the christmas. don't be a moron.

Hmmm...."Jackass", "Moron"...Why do people always have to augment thier thin arguments with name calling. Oh, yeah -- because they are thin arguments.

No, I get it. I understand the whole capitolism over religion thing. Kids think about candy instead of religion. Yup. I'm not arguing that at all.

But it's you who deosn't see the effect of the last four frames. He's made Jesus the reason for disapointment on easter. And how many posts are there already saying they loved it when Jesus got racked, or offending him with sick thoughts of his sexual organs? You are blind.

Now I could call you a bunch of names to help me make a fool of you, but your foolishness has nothing to do with my points.

His intentions, though they may be interesting, are insignificant.

God had Moses kill those who made the idol. They had good intentions, but were so misdirected.

Anwer the question
Posted by Sal

Mark,
Take a breather, really. Without the last 4 panels the, “Christians have lost site of the true meaning of Easter” message would not be apparent AND it is not Jesus’s fault that Easter has been corrupted. It was corrupted before He came to this toon by the people who push the candy. The “persecution of Jesus” is being done by a person who has been lead to believe that candy is more important than Jesus. If you don’t want to laugh, fine. If you want to be mad, be angry at the people who push the Easter Egg hunts at churches. If you are still confused answer this question: How would you pictorially show the message that Christians who participate in pagan Easter rituals have lost site of the true meaning of Easter in a Sunday paper toon format?

Just A Little Something
Posted by CK

What I was going for was the whole idea of Jesus basically being "hit in the nuts" by the boy's disappointment of getting a bible for Easter instead of candy. Someone else said early, it is along the same lines as the Christmas one sort of. You guys pretty much can get that. The giggling isn't really about Jesus getting hit in the balls, though the picture looks kind of funny if i do say so myself. Anyone getting hit in the balls is kinda funny...though painful.

No, what is insignificant is that comment. If the artist's perspective means nothing to you then you are at a disadvantage when viewing the art. You are missing out on the whole point and just reacting to what you are seeing. Maturity and higher level thinking: it does a body good.

Another Great Job
Posted by Captain_Typho

Wow Christian. This is a very powerful statement on the way Easter is often celebrated today. Too many people think of the candy and eggs and all that jazz rather than focus on the reason for the season, Jesus Christ. Children and adults alike ignore the religious side of the holiday and throw Christianity away (as is depicted in your cartoon) for the material possesions. This toon is very reminiscant of the statement made with the Santa Claus toon. Very good job!

You are right. HOWEVER, most people don't care about that. They really DO just react to what they see on a subconcious level. It's like asking a 10 year old to "understand the meaning" Here's an example:

"oh and whenever i hear or read "He is risen" i always get images of jesus with a massive erection in my head"

Now you see, Markee thought that that's kindof a funny play on the words, and he shared it with us. But I'll bet that LOTS of people never pictured such a thing in thier minds when they heard that phrase. But because he shared his strange imagery with us, the image and idea will crop up in more minds than just his next time someone says "He is Risen". His intentions were humorous. The results are a corrruption of peoples minds. Thanks Markee! This may be why society has degenerated so rapidly these days -- because of the huge increase in annonymous communication via the internet. There ought to be a law: If you want to take advantage of free speech, you have to use you're full name, and copies will be sent to your relatives. Otherwise, it's just grafitti. (I know this wouldn't stop CK, as his mother is aware of his work. But his way was paved years ago)

Oh, and as for this: "Mark can't even spell "capitalism," so I'm not too worried about him." Yeah, I mis-spelled. You got me. Your implying that I'm stupid and therefore my points are meaningless? That's another common tactic used to dismiss an argument by slandering the debater. That point is meaningless to the discussion. If this was a spoken forum instead of a written forum, you would never stop a debator and ask him to spell a word that he used. (I know it's boring to debate these types of comments, but I will continue to debate them as long as people make them.) So just for the record: I'm likely to mis-spell, or have a typo here and there. I'll try to keep it to a minimum. Please don't interupt the conversation to point it out.

By the way, my kid's easter basket had candy AND a bible. It was a small version of the pictorial bible that they use in sunday school. She was very excited to have it. (No, I'm not making that up, and yes, she ate candy all day!) You might say that the only reason she was excited is because of the way we are raising her. I take that as a compliment.

You are exactly right. Well put.

"How would you pictorially show the message that Christians who participate in pagan Easter rituals have lost site of the true meaning of Easter in a Sunday paper toon format?"

You are right, if you take out the last four panels, the message is lost. But creating humor over the rejection of Jesus is not the way to get the message across. That's just extra baggage. Like a legislator slipping in special interests into an unrelated Bill. The message is "easter has lost it's meaning to many". The extra baggage is "isn't it hilarious how the kid rejects Jesus!"

Do you find yourself empathetic toward Christaianity? Or are you on the "we didn't start the fire" bandwagon?

John,

Scripture says to hide the fact that you are fasting or praying or giving alms, I understand that. But I'm not going for 'points' on my actions. I'm trying to show that children won't reject Christ as shown in the cartoon.

It's interesting though, that you want me to keep good things "in the closet", while corrupting thoughts are allowed free reign in the name of "humor".

"you're illustrating what many, many kids want to do to jesus"

daine:

What are you even talking about? What kind of church did you go to as a kid? You are taking your own personal feelings, and presenting them as though you've done a survey of churchgoing children. I've never met a churchgoing kid that would agree to that. Perhaps a NON-churchgoing kid would want to do that if you made him go to church. But if you raise your kids to understand the gospel, they would never say "I want to throw a bible at Jesus" nor would they think it. I particularly like how you branded the word "idiots" into churchgoing using clothing a "carrier".

Posts like that perpetuate an idea without substance. It's marketing.

You don't have to find 5000 people that agree that Coke is better than Pepsi. You just have to CLAIM that 5000 people agree that Coke is better than Pepsi. Once the idea is branded in the minds of the masses, you won't have any problem finding the 5000. The power of mass graffiti strikes again.

Posted by Karen

Mark, I have a few statements in response to some of your posts: "I know this wouldn't stop CK, as his mother is aware of his work, but his way was paved years ago.." I am not sure what you are implying here, but you are right, CK's way was paved years ago. He was brought up in church and around tons of Christian family who have taught him the Bible and how to walk for Christ. He was taught right from wrong and was taught to think for himself and make his own choices. I am not sure if you meant to sound judgemental, but it sure came across that way. Be very careful of that. As far as "giving your little girl candy and a Bible and her being excited because of the way you are raising her" - that is wonderful - you should take it as a compliment - however - no matter how many times you take her to church, give her Bibles with her candy or teach her the gospel, (which I am 100% in favor of) rest assured she will still grow to make her own decisions in her own walk with Christ and I truly pray that you will hold true enough in your faith to support her and love her even when she may not make the choices you would have her to. (not saying that CK has-I am very proud of him) Just be very careful in judging others until you walk their path. "I'm trying to show that children won't reject Christ as shown in the cartoon" - Mark, how sad that you do not see there are children as well as adults that reject Him in this way daily (or most assuredly as painful as this) It is a cartoon depiction using the kicking in the testicles as a dramatic point. We all throw hypocrisy and pain at our Christ on a daily basis. As far as the comment "I've never met a churchgoing kid that would agree to doing this to Christ for being dressed up and pulled to Church every Sunday" - common on, of course they may not agree to kicking Christ in the crotch, but I can tell you there are hundreds of churchgoing children that would much rather be playing, sleeping, eating, etc come early Sunday morning when it comes time to shower, get dressed and be taken to church. That is not saying they do not get anything out of the experience. I am a true advocate of ignoring the complaining (even from adults)and pulling them through the doors if you must, but do not fool yourself into thinking they would not kick and scream at Jesus (as children) if given the opportunity. I mean they live with their parents/care givers and roll their eyes, whine, and throw fits........Jesus would be not different in their child's mind. Okay, I guess that about covers it. I pray you understand my points here. God bless and keep you. CK's Mother
Slander?
Posted by Rick Snee

First of all, the word you meant was "libel." This is print--I'm not talking to you.

Second, I *asked* if you were writing a manifesto for the NYT. Asking is not libel; declaring it as fact is.

Third, I didn't tell you to take your ball and go home like a six-year-old. I asked how many times you're going to repost your same arguement.

Finally, if you honestly believe a cartoon is going to destroy people's faiths, then that is truly an insult to God if we are created in His image.

If you are, indeed, packing it up though because of some questions, then it's easy to see why you believe your statements.

Karen,

You said all of that very well. I do not disagree with any of it. It's clear that you didn't teach CK this style of creative outlet. Society did.

"but his way was paved years ago.." I wasn't poking at you. I was poking at society over the centuries, slowly upping the ante, so to speak, as to what people aren't ashamed of admitting about thier thoughts, which were evolved from previously viewed materials, and social upbringing. This breeds a sort of "support group of disrespect". Here's an example:

""of course they may not agree to kicking Christ in the crotch, but I can tell you there are hundreds of churchgoing children that would much rather be playing, sleeping, eating, etc come early Sunday morning...""

Now, lots of kids would rather be sleeping or playing...But they don't tend to hold anger at Jesus for it...but now it's time to up the ante..."And kids, if you feel like you want to stay home, don't worry! There's "many, many kids" who want to kick him in the crotch! Join them in thier openness about it!"

You see, the context of the things that I say are in rebuttal of what others say.

It just seems as though CK is looking for an acceptable way to disrespect Jesus. If he puts enough truthful, insightful meaning into it (like this one), it is suddenly OK to slam Jesus in the process. I do understand your points, but the points CK makes COULD be made without disrespecting Jesus. Surely he could find a way to keep the toon funny without hurting Jesus.

Many around here want to say "lighten up, it makes a good point, and it's just a cartoon." I don't see any good reason to make displays like this. Thank you Karen for the voice of reason.

"Second, I *asked* if you were writing a manifesto for the NYT. Asking is not libel; declaring it as fact is."

Did you really think I might be living in the woods hoping to get published in the NYT? No. It was in the spirit of mocking; comparing me to a past lunatic. You are just denying the intent because I caught you on it.

"Third, I didn't tell you to take your ball and go home like a six-year-old. I asked how many times you're going to repost your same arguement."

Everytime my argument is undermined by deceitful practices, I will restate it in a way to remove the deceit. How's that?

"Finally, if you honestly believe a cartoon is going to destroy people's faiths, then that is truly an insult to God if we are created in His image."

That's like saying "God created us, some of us are murderers, therefore God created murderers". False, don't you think?

"If you are, indeed, packing it up though because of some questions, then it's easy to see why you believe your statements."

I don't understand that one. I think it is just a generalized mock at everything I've ever said, using the mere fact that I would give up on this conversation to discredit it all. "Look, he's leaving---he MUST be wrong on every point! Who's with me!"

hahaha
Posted by Rick Snee

I didn't deny the intent. I just don't feel the need to repeat it over and over again. It's in print for everyone once--shouldn't that be enough?
No Subject
Posted by Mark

You would think once would be enough. But low and behold, people just don't get it. Here's how I see it. It's like a new cartoon comes up, and a bunch of people jump in and say "hey nice cartoon, two plus two equals five!" and I come in and write a big long letter that explains how 2+2=4.

then, when I'm all done, someone else comes in and says,"just calm down dude, it's just a cartoon....by the way CK, 2+2=5 baby!! Keep it up!"

So yeah, I guess I should get tired of trying to prove it. Nobody seems to want to listen. If they did, they would stop backing the wrong answer.

You can't prove anything. You have your opinions of the cartoon and society and other people have different opinions. I, for one, and extremely glad that I'm in a society that allows me both my freedom OF religion and my freedom FROM religion.

Images of F*@$#!%@ disrespectful actions toward Jesus
Posted by Sal

The following is a list of a few images that the “average person” may see as disrespectful toward Jesus. Do we treat these “average” people like they are stupid and hide these things from them? or Do we let them stand and help the average person understand? If you say “Yes, hide them.” You are a reason behind many Christians loss of faith. BTW The Catholic church is notorious for this “protect them from things that are over their head” attitude, Vatican II met 1962-65 and one of the things they did at this holy meeting was declare it OK for the flock to have bibles they could actually read. They declared that one of the things they should be doing is helping their flock understand what in the world was going on doing church so they also decide to start speaking the native vernacular. Yes, I was raised Catholic including going to a Catholic Middle and High School.
1) Crucifix.
2) That Jesus Movie by that guy from Lethal Weapon.
3) Shroud of Turin (Real or not, I think it is disrespectful to show-off a burial shroud that was soaked and dyed by the blood of Christ and therefore has his image on it) .
4) The portial of Jesus as a white guy, when he and his family were from the Middle East.
5) This Toon.(Man thats bad, no disrespect Christian, BUT the only reason your on the list is to prove the point.)

There's a big difference between that and just being bored with church. Don't pull things out of context. So I'll rephrase it just to clear this all up and keep it in the context of when I first said it:

Good comment/question. Actually, I can break that down. I've said it before, I get the point behind the cartoon. The reason I am fixed on the literal is because it is the literal that is offensive. If the cartoon was being offensive at any other level, I would object to that, too.

That has really got me thinking. Thank you SAWR!

I will suggest that there are 3 levels, not just two. There is the literal, the symbolic, and the emotional.

For this episode of Christ on Campus, the symbolic message is an important one that should be addressed. But the literal is offensive and damaging to Christianity as it displays anger and pain inflicted at Jesus. The emotional is also damaging. You have ask, for the majority of people, after reading this toon, do they feel and strength in Christianity or do they see Christianity as a failure?

So, this truely is my last post for this episode. It is predominatly negative toward Christianity as it fails 2 of 3 levels.

WOW, you could not have made a better point! Kids today are what scientist are calling the lost generation: obesity levels sky rocketing, A.D.D, A.D.H,D and so on and so on. For those of you who like to make fun of Christ please go ahead, but the ironic thing is the more you poke fun the more it is brought to the front page of media. If you want something to die you forget about it. Christian I want to thank you for keeping this going becuase those who do not know Christ are really starting to ask questions and the 88% of americans who are Christians and the thousands of mission workers around the world thank you for making their jobs a little easier. On a missions trip this past summer to South America hundreds packed into a small unair- conditioned church to hear the word of god. Smelly Yes, Sweaty Yes but the point is, is that they were there! We can't even get most students to class here at RU something that their parents pay for. So again Christian THANK YOU!

Lost Generation?

Interesting, because all I am finding are things about our generation being labelled the next "great" generation, and articles about how motivated and focused we are. Maybe you're thinking of the stereotypical "X" generation with is seen as being apathetic?

Regardless, try actually doing some research before you post rhetoric for everyone to see.

On one last note: "What is it worth having the biggest religion if the people have miserable living conditions?" The number of people that show up to church seems to be irrelevant to the inner beliefs of the people attending. It's quality not quantity.

Sorry if this is a little heavy handed... it's been a long day.

Mark, your response to my comment makes me realize what your problem is: you are taking the toon literally. You don't seem like an unintelligent person, which is why I find it hard to understand why you cannot wrap your brain around what this toon is stating. Kids see Easter as an excuse to get candy and fail to grasp the religious meaning behind the holiday. I'm sorry that I had to be the one to explain it to you and that you could not figure it out yourself.

I like how Mark got extremely defensive about it and never answered yes or no to the question. Let's try it again. Mark, do you go to this school?

Apparently, Radford students don't know how to read.

Marianne: I did answer the question. Go read it again. And next time you want to take a cheap shot, trying to discredit me without addressing the topic, resist the urge. It only discredits yourself.

Janus: I do understand, and I did "figure it out for myself". For some reason, you just ignore what I am saying because you have a preconceived notion of my "wrongness" or something. Here are two quotes from MY posts above:

"If he puts enough truthful, insightful meaning into it (like this one)..."

"No, I get it. I understand the whole capitolism over religion thing. Kids think about candy instead of religion. Yup. I'm not arguing that at all."

(notice I didn't alter those quotes, including my mis-spelled words!) I don't need you to explain simple symbolism to me. But apparently you need me to explain the literal offensiveness.
