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 #189: Make Love, Not For-nication

People often speak and act as if being "in love" gave them the right to break a law of God by engaging in extramarital sexual intercourse, but such activity is a product of sexual passion, not of love. (Coitus is perfectly legitimate within the bounds of marriage, since it furthers the biblical primary purpose of marriage, which is procreation; in fact, the very word "matrimony" derives from the Latin for "mother."  Note that the biblical secondary purpose of marriage is to provide a benign means of satisfying the sexual desire that adults and adolescents feel.)  Love—true love—is no justification for fornication.
