about "The Best Comic Strip Ever!"

The characters in my strip, set in Africa's Western Rift Valley, are: the Foolish Pride of lions (Leon, the haughty and lethargic King of Beasts; his queen, Leona; and their cub Lionel, an unpromising heir to the throne); Secretary Bird, a liason between the Royal Court and the rest of the animals; cerebral, man-imitating Ape, a reader of the Substandard; peevish Rhinoceros; harmless but senseless Ostrich; Crocodile, resident of the much-frequented Watering Hole, and his dentist, Crocodile Bird; Honey Badger (alias Ratel), the "Meanest Animal in the World", and his one associate, Honeyguide; Mumbo the elephant, a descendant of Jumbo and a butt of jokes about his weight and the size of his ears and nose; Duncan the dung beetle; ill-favored and unwashed Warthog; the craven, henpecked male and shrewish female hyaenas, both of them foul-smelling and perpetually at war vs. the lions; the mistaken-identity-plagued zebras; slow and superannuated Tortoise; Oxpecker, a companion of large herbivores; Hugh the chamaeleon; and walled-up Mrs. Hornbill.

Uncommon Commentary #170: Here See Heresy

A smaller percentage of US citizens claim Christianity as their faith now than ever before, but the situation is really even worse than that statistic shows, since the number of ostensible followers of Christ includes such heretics as Unitarians (who get their name from the fact that they deny the Trinity), Mormons (who hold that God the Father and God the Son were extraterrestrials who attained the status of divinities), and believers in Black Liberation Theology (like the congregation of the "church" in Chicago formerly attended by Emperor Nerobama; if you've ever heard about how its "worship services" are conducted, you know that this point requires no elaboration).
