This is the best parody on the steroid controversy in American baseball.

Good job with the facial expressions on Jesus as well, they really look like they were manufactured on the doll.

And the last panel with the newspaper headline is a priceless treasure in its own right.

HAHAHAHAHHAHA!!!!!

So funny. This is one of my favourite storylines.

How did Preston become an expert on church-rituals, I wonder? He must be the first Predator in history to comment on this subtle but important division between catholicism and protestantism.

So this Jesus is not the Catholic one? Does that mean it’s the orthodox one? Or the Coptic? He looks Coptic…

What, you can accept that Jesus Christ lives with an alien and a predator in NYC, plays baseball for the Yankees, but get hung up on that? I don’t think it’s a matter of what Jesus would or would not say. I think it’s a matter of this being a comic strip intended to be humorous rather than to present the gospel.

Maybe he was talking about image search? That didn’t give anything.

And I wouldn’t give too much flak to Jesus for not knowing about the transubstantiation thing. Keeping up with the beliefs and rules of all the christian sects is hard enough when you’re not being Jesus and playing baseball, let alone when you are.

Speaking of which, I’d like to send a message to all you christians out there, while I’m at it;
Divide even more! I don’t get nearly enough of these little pilgrim fuckers, that seem to be magically drawn to the gargantuan, invisible, holy emitter thing, that’s been conveniently jammed in my ass! Seriously! It’s just the lutherans, catholics and the orthodox guys now. Well fuck that, I want a double serving!

I just know I spelled at least two of those wrong.

AvP is morphing from a comic strip into a full-blown sitcom. This is a great episode. I can wait a week between episodes happily when they’re this good!

No. You have to be baptised into the Church to be considered Catholic. If you’re not baptised Catholic, you can’t have the rights that others who are baptised Catholic can. That’s why when anyone Catholic marrys anyone else from a different religion and wants to have a Catholic ceremony, they have to promise to baptize and raise the kids within the faith and not the spouse’s faith. If they were Catholic by birth, that wouldn’t be in the fine print.

Now you’ve done it Bernie, gone and mentioned specific denominations, it’s always fun to see who comes out of the woodwork when either religions or political affiliations are mentioned!! Good issue.

By the way, I think JESUS might say something like that.

Ouch, watch it there, Bernie. I’m a Catholic, and I understand a) transubstantiation is probably the weirdest thing we believe and the hardest one to swallow (no pun intended) and b) nobody is interested in hearing me talk about the metaphysical picture of space and time that Catholics hold that says not only is that the physical body and blood of Christ, but that each time the Host is consecrated, we also consider ourselves very actually present with Christ at the Last Supper.

But this is still a very holy, very intimate and very cherished belief. If you want to think we’re weirdos, that’s fine, just don’t go bein too harsh on us about it, huh?

October 4, 2005 at 12:51 am

I would like to add that I appreciate the effort and honesty that Bernie puts into his work. In today’s PC world, you are always going to end up pissing one or two people off when you dabble into today’s current issues and somesuch…

Whatever you do Bernie, don’t let one or two complaints throw you off on your openly creative genius. Just create what you see fit, because we sometimes need someone to throw a curve out there every once in a while in this world that’s trying to be perfectly straight.

But, you probably already knew that; I guess I just wanted to get that out there for the hell of it.

((I am not trying to get on anyone’s case that has complained about the subject material of this comic. Hey, it’s a comic…there’s other things in this world that are more worth openly complaining about than a comic. But, that’s your opinion and I value the freedom of allowing to express opinions; just like Bernie is expressing his opinion in comic form.))

“You’re making it very hard for me to love you right now.”

I think I’m going to have to make an icon of that.

As always, awesome comic. I second the thing about the expressions, it’s great how you manage to make the figures look alive instead of plastic and staring off into space.

I actually don’t think Bernie was ragging on Catholicism, maybe a little, but more on the media and the way things get blown out of proportion and outright fabricated for the sake of sensationalism.

…Which is why I don’t think I ever want to be famous. I have had a very troubled and sensitive past…and there’s going to be media predators (haha) out there that will find this information and paste it onto every publication in print and then exaggerating on everything to just make the story more appealing.

Such is the life of a celebrity.

I feel for ya Jesus!

((Ah! That would make a great icon!…those icon phreaks over at livejournal would jump on that shit in half a second…!))

Please Mr. Chainsaw,

this is totally uncalled for. Nothing in Alexandra’s reaction, nor in any other “catholic” reaction to this webcomic so far is deserving of such a fundamentalistic reaction.

Really? Now was she born as a Dutch reformed and later conversed to catholicism as well? And is your father a Muslim as well?

You don’t have to be a member of any religion to be so tied up in your own believes that your reaction to the rest of the world becomes fundamentalistic. But I think you’ve just proven that this is not the case with you, so lets drop it, okay? Sorry if I offended you, I didn’t intend to.

Heh, just saw that for the first time a few days ago. “Start your day the holy way with Christ Chex!”

I have a tendency to get a little defensive when religious things are mentioned as well as others on this board, but I like to think my sense of humor outweighs my righteous indignation. As far as I’m concerned, compared to strips like Ghastly’s Ghastly Comic, Bernie has handled having Jesus as a main character with total respect and restraint.
