    That sounds a great deal like Hinduism.

    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.

    Hrm... where did he claim the Catholic Church was behind Dungeons and Dragons? I know he thought Dungeons & Dragons was the tool of the devil or something like that, but I don't recall him connecting it explicitly with the Catholic Church.

    What I find interesting, however, is that despite his constant tirades against the Catholic Church, he's quite silent in regards to Eastern Orthodoxy despite the fact that almost all of his doctrinal criticisms of the Catholic Church apply just as much to Eastern Orthodoxy. Eastern Orthodoxy is mentioned a few times on his site, in a negative light as you might expect, but the lack of mentions compared to the constant criticisms of Catholicism is a little odd. One might say it's simply because Catholicism is much bigger than Eastern Orthodoxy, but Eastern Orthodoxy is much larger than Mormonism, which was a frequent target of his.

    Surprisingly, Jack Chick was apparently actually a really nice guy in person, if this account of meeting him is any indication.

    He may not have thought that they were sufficiently distinguishable to merit special attention. And Orthodoxy in English-speaking countries is relatively small (and not nearly as pushy for converts as Mormonism).

    I grew up in a church which distributed Chick tracts, and I never even heard of Orthodoxy until I joined the Navy (there was a Greek in my boot camp company).

    Dan found one in Wal mart a couple days ago. Read through it. We thus far have collected "The Death Cookie" "Hail Mary/Hail Satan" "Where did all the Dinosaurs go" (There's two of those with different stories) "This is your life" and the other "This is your life" Also a couple about Halloween. Ugh. He's dead and people are still passing his asshattery around.
