    That sounds a great deal like Hinduism.

    Pantheistic cultures generally - including the Celts in the earlier centuries.

    And the Romans.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

    The Indians here are dead serious about their beliefs. I managed a large ag co-op for years and had to hire a medicine man many times. If you found a snake on your property, or an owl, the Navajo clientele refused to trade with us until the proper ceremony was held. The medicine men don't accept white man's money, so you had to figure out a suitable trade for their services.
    yeesh.

    One of the interesting things about religion to me is how you can watch cultures intermingle and stories get borrowed/modified.

    Especially in the Catholic Church. For Chick, the CC was the source of pretty much all evil:

    Catholicism AKA the worship of Nimrod, Semiramis, and Tammuz
    Popes
    Jesuits
    Bibles other than the AV-kjv
    Islam
    Nazism
    Dungeons and Dragons
    WW1
    WW2
    The assassination of Lincoln (by Jesuits, natch)

    Druids may or may not be the fault of the Pope, but they are certainly - in the Chickverse - Babylonian.
    Rock music, like evolution and homosexuality, is also satanic - possibly without involving the Pope or the Jesuits. If there is a stone for a devil to hide under, Chick lifted it. If it doesn't fit into Chick's world-view - satandunnit.

    I don't recall any mention of Marx, Lenin and co. being Catholics, but there probably is one - I've not read all Chick's output, so have probably missed a lot. He thought Mohammed married a Catholic nun; that Kaiser Wilhelm II, a Lutheran, was a Catholic; and that Cardinal Newman was a Jesuit - so it would be no surprise if Chuck thought Marx and co. were Catholics. Careful scholarship was not his forte.

    I doubt he thought up an original conspiracy theory in his life; his Grand Unified Theory about the CC is cribbed from the works of others. The real Big Bad in the Chickverse is satan - the Popes are, at most, his Dragons.

    Well there you go. Obviously he was on to something.
