Current Mood: too amused to be offended
A 1973 comic book about Revelation, as interpreted by a fringe member of the Religious Right. Ignorance-tacular!

Feeling slightly nauseous.

This is not exactly a fringe thing man, there are a LOT of people that believe in all of this.

Btw...is THAT why the religious right are so supportive of Israel? 'Cause...urg.

And none of this 'Jews for Jesus' nonsense, please.

Belief can be really scary. If someone believes in something, especially if a LOT of someones believe in something, it makes you think that there must be a reason, possibly even a good reason for you to believe it as well.

Scare tactics irritate me.

(Sorry, probably not the response you were expecting.)

While the opinions represented in the comic book were definitely not uncommon back then, I think the cartoonists took it a lot farther than most people would have. I'm more concerned about the fact that the book was marketed as a legitimate means by which kids could learn about Revelation. Brainwashing kids with propaganda, be it from the Religious Right or the socialist movement, is a dirty, dirty tactic.

As for the Christian Right's position on Israel, well, Wikipedia explains it better than I can.
