The religious affiliations of comic book superheroes.

Ever wonder what the religious affiliations of comic book superheroes are? Yeah, neither have I. But someone did and had enough time on his hands to compile this insanely exhaustive list of comic book characters (mostly superheroes) and their religious beliefs / affiliations. Here's a quick sample:

Superman and Supergirl are Methodists.

Spiderman and Captain America are Protestants.

Batman is Episcopalian/Catholic (lapsed).

The Punisher and The Hulk are Catholic (lapsed).

Nightcrawler, Daredevil, Catwoman, Hellboy, Ghost Rider and The Punisher are Catholics.

John Constantine is Catholic slash humanist.

Deadpool is Catholic (lapsed) slash One World Church (lapsed).

The Thing / Ben Grimm, Captain Underpants and Firestorm are Jewish.

Iceman, The Sandman, Robin, Green Lantern II are Jewish slash Catholic.

Wolverine is Buddhist, apparently.

Dr. Doom and Magneto are Roma (Gypsy).

The Savage Dragon is an atheist.

ETA:
J. Jonah Jameson's religion is listed as "Hates Spider Man." LMAO.

Breaking News: Barack Obama is NOT in fact the Antichrist.

Breaking news! According to the authors of the Left Behind series of Christian novels, Barak Obama is NOT, in fact, the Antichrist.

“I’ve gotten a lot of questions the last few weeks asking if Obama is the antichrist,” says novelist Jenkins. “I tell everyone that I don’t think the antichrist will come out of politics, especially American politics.”

“I can see by the language he uses why people think he could be the antichrist,” adds LaHaye, “but from my reading of scripture, he doesn’t meet the criteria. There is no indication in the Bible that the antichrist will be an American.”


Yay! Good to know that's cleared up.

I am a bit troubled. I believe my son has a girlfriend, because she left a dirty magazine with men in it under his bed. My son is only 16 and I really don’t think he’s ready to date yet. What’s worse is that he’s sneaking some girl to his room behind my back. I need help, God! I want my son to stop being so secretive!

To say the Bible was written by men and may contain inaccuracies completely contradicts the word of the Bible.

And perhaps the best quote of all time:

One of the most basic laws in the universe is the Second Law of Thermodynamics. This states that as time goes by, entropy in an environment will increase. Evolution argues differently against a law that is accepted EVERYWHERE BY EVERYONE. Evolution says that we started out simple, and over time became more complex. That just isn’t possible: UNLESS there is a giant outside source of energy supplying the Earth with huge amounts of energy. If there were such a source, scientists would certainly know about it.
