Soon They’ll Be Calling Me A Godless Terrorist

The alternative heading for this post was “Eat Bear Cocks In Hell, Godboy”:

The Archbishop of Wales, Dr Barry Morgan, has described a rise in “fundamentalism” as one of the great problems facing the world.
He focused on what he described as “atheistic fundamentalism”.

Dr Morgan’s Christmas message comes after the general director of the Evangelical Alliance, the Rev Joel Edwards, compared militant atheists to King Herod in their intolerance of religious faith.

Welcome to Great Britain: a post-Christian country where prime ministers only get elected by not mentioning your invisible space daddy. Of course, not everyone’s gotten the news, as the prime minister who got elected by not mentioning his affection for rumoured deities

…the former prime minister told the BBC that he had avoided talking about his religious views while in office for fear of being labelled “a nutter”…

– has converted to Catholicism (because there aren’t enough Catholics being born every minute, we presume):

Last year, Mr Blair, who is now a Middle East peace envoy, said he had prayed to God when deciding whether or not to send UK troops into Iraq.

And didn’t that work out well for everyone? One hopes that Richard Dawkins will be along to shank everyone involved soon, if he’s yet stopped laughing at pathological liar Pastor Ted Haggard turning out to be a whoremongering tweaker.

NEWUNIVERSAL: Round Two

December 22nd, 2007 | Work

I’ve been answering this question a lot, but word doesn’t seem to have gotten around. The long hiatus on NEWUNIVERSAL has been down to us waiting for the right artist for the job to get free of his other commitments. That artist is a guy called Steve Kurth, and he’s just turned in the pencil art for the first issue of the next arc. A tiny preview of Steve bringing the explodo (see everything kind of bending around the guy in the top panel?):

I put him through the wringer on this first issue, and he responded brilliantly. Here’s a small look at the page of the YOUNG JUDGE BAO manhua I made the poor bastard draw:

This stuff is really going to sing in the inks. Steve’s got another couple of scripts to go before he catches up with me, I think…
