Sadly, our D&D sessions never were as awesome as in Chick's "Dark Dungeons".

I read one of those tracts where it was trying to get me to accept Christ as my Savior.... but he failed his Save roll.

Say what you like about the idiocy of the Chick Tracts, but while not great art, if I could draw half as well I'd be rather pleased with the results. But not then text.

On the other hand, many people (and almost me) could draw as well as most xkcd cartoons (there are exceptions). But few could create anything half as good.

Which just supports words > pictures.

I always wondered just how many people came to Jesus as a result of a Chick Tract -- and if the answer is greater than zero, which of the tracts was most successful.

Pretty sure I've read all of them, but I can't say I was ever tempted to switch teams.

He spent a life doing what he loved and expressing his creative output. He was a lucky man. Some of his tracts seemed intolerant but they were usually dogmatically following the text. He was a hell and brimstone type of Christian I hope that some people who went to religion because of him found peace as a result of it and perhaps some people with problems we're able to use religion to manage their problems.

Good, fuck him.

I grew up in an evangelical church, I was barred from playing D&D until I was 18 because it was the devil because of that piece of shit failed artist.

My parents were well-meaning and saw the light as it were after, but what a stupid crusade.

Good riddance!

(Although perhaps I'd never have gotten as into gaming if I hadn't of been banned from doing so. But eh!)

Very well. He was a twisted shit who devoted his life to hatred, fear, and emotional abuse, instead of the love and generosity he (and the religion he misused) claimed it should have been about. And unfortunately his work had far wider effect than it ever deserved, and will vastly outlast him.

Jack Chick also made some tracts against Mormons.

Chick tracts can be dangerous - to the people handing them out. I may have mentioned this anecdote before, but when I was a teenager, a charismatic evangelical church moved into what had been a local cinema in the centre of town. The members started up their idea of an "outreach" programme, going after those they saw as most vulnerable to their messages (children, for example). In the run-up to one Hallowe'en, a couple of them (young men, around 20-ish, I think) stood outside the gates of my school at home-time, handing out Chick tracts ("Happy Halloween", to my recollection). There were actually two schools on the site: secondary (ages 11-16) and junior(ages 8-11), and our happy little outreachers were handing the tracts to all the children.

A couple of days into their project, my friend and I were waiting for another friend outside the gates, and there were the born-agains with their box of tracts. Walking up the street towards them was a rather large gentleman with a less than friendly look on his face. He reached the BAs, took a tract out of his pocket, and a short dialogue ensued (this is from memory, so it may not have been the exact words, but the gist is there):

Man: "You been giving these to kids?"

BA1: "Uh...yes".

Man: "Why?"

BA2: "Because the Lord needs children to know the dangers of hell".

Man: "It scared the shit out of my daughter. She's terrifed - didn't sleep last night for all the nightmares".

BA1: "Children need to know the truth about hell - it's good that she's scared".

Man: "You're a fuckin' loony. You're scaring kids, it ain't right. You boys need to clear off. Don't come back".

BA1: "We're not going anywhere, we have a right to..."

At this point the man punched the BA in the eye. He went down on his backside. The other one went to help him up...they both seemed dazed.

Man: "Clear off. Don't come back. I see you here again, I'll bring some friends with me".

He stalked away.

They cleared off. They did not come back.
