    He should have said “homosexual MEN” instead of “homosexuals.” There aren’t any women.

    I bet lesbians turn him on.

    Aren’t comic books supposed to be funny? And have artistic value? And written by people with a measurable IQ?

    This look like a job for HeteroMan!!!
    Or maybe the ambiguously Gay Duo?

    This offends me more as a cartoonist than as a gay.

    Did you see the Arizona Republicans running for Congress interviewed ?

    It turns out that they are agains gay marriage because sodomy is addictive and is caused by people visiting whorehouses in Nogales.

    Enlightening

    Well, the comic was actually drawn by Shane Suiters, not Rinehart, so maybe the spelling and grammar errors are her fault. Either way, it’s still pretty pathetic.

    Emily K: “He should have said ‘homosexual MEN’ instead of ‘homosexuals.’ There aren’t any women.”

    I’ve found that people like him don’t believe that lesbians exist. We’re either just experimenting or have had a bad experience with a man. When Mr. Right shows up, we’ll forget all of that silly nonsense.

    Yeah, but then we wouldn’t have Chick Tracts!

    Piasharn,

    I was waiting for someone to mention Chick Tracts. The comparison is really unfair, however; Chick Tracts are much better than this.

    Wow. I can’t believe he has the gumption to send that out and admit he created it himself. I’d be so humiliated.

    According to the comic he’s a “Roads scholar”. He might have told the artist that it’s “Rhodes Scholar”.

    Wow, that was contract work?! That’s pretty sad. My money says she didn’t have an art degree, I hope.

    Poor Oklahomans; another politico has caught “The Kern”.

    LOLZ, “chick tracks” are considered so noxious, outrageous, and ridiculous by many CHRISTIAN booksellers that they won’t even carry them.

    Oh, and, art school-trained artist talking here: Chick’s artwork ranges from buffoonish to overdramatic (he has a couple ppl working for him I think). But the writing is ALWAYS ridonkulous. That’s right. I used that word. Because it’s the only word that does it justice.

    How terribly sad.

    Chick Tracts are at least somewhat coherent and have a modicum of art value.

    I thought he had a 12 year old draw it.

    BTW, Brent seems to have forgotten that the SCOTUS invalidated sodomy laws in ALL fifty states (like it or not Oklahoma is one of them), the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico in 2003.

    PiaSharn, thanks for clearing that up a bit. It helps me solve this mystery as to why people who say “homosexuals” never include women in their bigotry.

    Yeah, I agree, Chick tracts are at least unintentionally funny, if quite pathetic and a little sad. This thing is just plain old pathetic and REALLY sad. There are some other choice grammatical errors, too, “ask’s” as the singular present conjugation of “to ask” as well as a glaring instance of “your” instead of “you’re”.

    Perhaps Sherlock Holmes was right; when you fill your “brain attic” with useless junk (like this claptrap) you eventually run out of space and have to get rid of the useful stuff (like spelling, grammar, and common sense).

    Or as C.S. Lewis’s character, the Professor queried, “I wonder, what DO they teach them at these schools?”

    Scott – I think they really meant a road’s scholar…

    It’s like that sad middle-schooler who keeps writing “I am so cool” on his book covers.

    Did you notice how the people putting their thumbs down have left hands on their right arms? And how the little boyscout appears to be levitating AND digging his heels in? (At least, that’s what I THINK the artist was going for…)

    I’m with Emily, the homophobia is eye-roll-worthy, the comic however is a crime against art.

    As for the 12 year old comment: I know 12 year olds who could do better. I honestly do. Well, OK, I know one.

    Wouldn’t it have been much easier for him to just say “I’m a big self-loathing closet case”?
