Christianity in the Comics ...

... in the newspapers i.e. Faith and the Funny Pages (Hat tip to Dogwood.) ...
“The Bible tells us that we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God,” the character says, shouting into a cellphone in a crowded place. “But the good news is that the free gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ His son!”

His friend looks at him. “That’s not even a working phone, is it?” he says.

“No,” the talker admits, “but it’s a great way to share my faith!”

The strip, called “Heaven’s Love Thrift Shop,” made its debut in 15 American newspapers this month, with quotations from Scripture and characters talking about their faith. Though other comics occasionally address religious themes, mainstream newspapers and syndicates have largely avoided strips that make religion so central.
As the author says later on ... it's sneaky! Sure is! Mi piace ... :-)
