and his cracktasticness has certainly been covered
on Metafilter before. However, in one fell swoop, his cracktasticness has not only squared but cubed. Chick's pamphlet, Lisa
(curiously absent from the tracts on his site
), features a father who gave herpes to his little daughter and then pimps his daughter out to his similarly pedophilic neighbor (who thinks the "pretty juicy gossip" is "pretty kinky") in exchange for the neighbor's silence. Two months of abuse later, the family doctor discovers Lisa's herpes, and does not report the father to the police, because ... well, you'll see. (Makes the Old Ones
look better and better.)

If you're already familiar with the work of Jack Chick
, the creator of those amusingly offensive evangelist comic books, you probably know not to take him too seriously -- after all, the threat of being thrown into a giant lake of fire by an angel isn't particularly frightening. Still, when his new tract
starts with an image of the smoldering twin towers, and ends with the words, "Bob, now I know that Allah doesn't really love me or even care about any Muslim. But Jesus, the Son of God, does,"
it's difficult not to worry that this time he's bitten off more than he can chew.

Anime from a religious perspective
This could never get tiresome - Jack Chick and others may think they have cornered the market in (unintentionally) hilarious Christian interpretations of popular culture, but this excoriation
of Anime by (I suspect) a Baptist and definitely a fundamentalist is wonderful reading, and provides some competition. Quite apart from the fire and brimstone article itself, the pictures are a good laugh too.

Read Dark Dungeons
and want to know what the fuss is about? Feeling left out when the cool kids argue about whether a storm giant could take a green dragon? Never fear! Wizards of the Coast
, a division of multinational fun conglomerate Hasbro, is making some soul-corrupting old D&D stuff available as free downloads

Free Jack Chick comics online
I only post this because I am always surprised how many people have never heard of the man. There is only one way to salvation, and Jack wants to show you. Some favorites are Bewitched
and the discontinued anti-D&D classic Dark Dungeons
. The Poor Little Witch"
will twist your brain too. Did you know Roman Catholics are not Christian, and that Christian Scientists cannot get into heaven?
