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 #467: The Left Is Not Right

To a Christian, there ought to be no question that the US Supreme Court’s decision on same-sex marriage is morally wrong.  Whether it’s constitutionally wrong depends on whether one applies a narrow or a broad interpretation to the US Constitution, specifically to the provision in Article XIV for “equal protection under the law”.  Whether the ruling is constitutionally correct or incorrect is, however, rather a moot question.  The mere fact that the Left is using this revered founding document to advance its socio-political agenda ought to teach a lesson to my comrades in the Culture War, who persist in the belief that our country’s greatest strength is its form of government.  In my opinion, “American democracy” is one of the chief reasons why the USA can no longer be considered Christian.
