A personal favourite

I was going to spend some time mocking this particular fucktard but I noticed it was Chick publications and realised that it was like shooting fish in a barrel. Read the first two paragraphs here. I have taken the liberty of getting a few definitions from dictionary.com.

"Vampire"
A reanimated corpse that is believed to rise from the grave at night to suck the blood of sleeping people.

"Moron"
Psychology. A person of mild mental retardation having a mental age of from 7 to 12 years and generally having communication and social skills enabling some degree of academic or vocational education. The term belongs to a classification system no longer in use and is now considered offensive.

Ha! Love it! Now what's this worrying familiarity with some apparently dodgy christian fundamentalist publishing house all about, then?

You never read the crap on Chick.com? Some of the stuff on it is laugh out loud funny (least *I* laughed out loud) he's grown more paranoid as time goes on and now he's releasing comics about the new world order and how in the not too distant future we'll all be under the thumb of evil hippies and children who think sacrificing kittens is the !!funnest thing ever!!, He makes for a good benchmark of craziness in my opinion, you're still okay as long as you're not Jack Chick.

Also, the author of that piece has, in his time, been a vampire, satanist (hardcore no less) and a thirty second degree mason. Busy guy - I've had 27 years on this earth and I've only managed "Software Tester" and "half assed writer".

I hadn't read any before, but I have now.

Is this guy for real? Marginally scary... and yet fucking hilarious at the same time. I like the New Age Healer with the facial scar and KKK outfit...

I've read a couple of interviews with him a few years back - there was a sort of fad for spoofing his stuff by taking the original comics and replacing the text. Dark Dungeons is a particularly popular target since it deals with D&D and role playing games in general in a *spectacularly* ill informed manner. He comes across as being deadly earnest and genuinely disappointed that folks feel the need to mock his works. More to the point, despite his ranting and raving he is supposedly quite a humble person, his tracts aren't meant to be preachy hyperbole - they're just him stating the rock-solid facts as he sees them.

I don't know if that makes him more or less scary to be honest.

So all those year of playing AD&D were putting my eternal soul at risk? Tch. Oh well.

Do you reckon this stuff qualifies as Chick-lit?

...sorry.

Well see, apparantly you're safe because the big guy doesn't care about your actions - only whether or not you've let him into your heart. So personally I'd carry on with D&D and from the look of it, its pretty safe to go on a bit of a killing spree as long as you schedule a minute or so to let the LAWD! into your life.

And you bloody well should be sorry :)

Now Jack Chick and Cecelia Ahern are forever connected in my mind.
