    I dunno. As a Christian, I think I can say that he was pretty ham-handed with his religiously-themed strips, particularly towards the end of his time. I don't think he intended to spread hate or anything like that, though I do remember his rather, erm, unfortunate Easter strip from a few years back where he started with a lit menorah and had candles blown out one by one until the final frame showed the Christian cross. Controversial, at any rate.

    I do think he meant well. But it was obvious he'd lost some zing on the fastball. Most of his B.C. strips were pretty unfunny at the end (Wizard of Id held up better, probably because he had more outside help).

    Dying doing the thing you love is pretty cool. Unless the thing you love is living.
