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 #475: The Left Is So Gauche!

A devotee of Christ can favor some of the positions that are associated with the Democratic Party; it’s not incompatible with Christian belief to favor big government, for example, or to oppose development projects for the sake of protecting the natural environment.  On Election Day, however, except when a proposition is on the ballot, one votes for candidates; and, if one votes Democrat, those candidates are far more likely than not to follow such un-Christian practices as lying to the public and slandering the opposition, and to have un-Christian or even anti-Christian attitudes on social issues like (induced) abortion and “LGBT rights”.  Unless, therefore, one feels that, e.g., the highly dubious threat from “climate change” is so much more important than a definite life-and-death matter like fœticide that one is justified in electing an Obama or a Hillary [sic], I don’t see how a true Christian (or anyone else with a conscience) can still vote for (most) Democrats.
