Calvin and Hobbes Political Statement of the Day

(click on the comic to make it bigger)

So many directions one could go with this... the wise words of Peter Parker's uncle, "with great power comes great responsibility."

It's true in our relationships, it's true for parents, it's true in government, and it's true in the church.

Back in the 60's, Robert Short wrote a little book called The Gospel According to Peanuts. Since then, there have been a flurry of The Gospel According to (fill in the blank). There's so much good theological thought to be mined in those old Calvin and Hobbes comic strips...I wonder if Bill Watterson would ever consent to allowing a Gospel According to Calvin and Hobbes to be published?


Gotta go.
