We noticed a "tell it like it is" comic strip just before 2006 Christmas in our local
(Kingston ON Canada) paper. It seemed to sum up the idiocy of
religiously-motivated intolerance and violence. We have copied the text below.
We hope to add the contents of future comic strips as we find them.

Non Sequitur by Wiley for 2006-DEC-16:
The comic strip involves a conversation between a boy and his horse. That may
sound like a very unusual occurrence; however a similar conversation is recorded
in the Bible in Numbers 22:22-23 between Balaam and
Horse: "Um ... You lost me there. Explain that again? Boy: "OK ... One group of followers willingly sacrifice themselves to
blow up people who follow a different religion."
H: "Yessa. You can't get more fanatical than that, eh?" B: "Well ... The other group of followers are willing to commit all of
their resources to launching overwhelming military strikes in retaliation."
H: "And how about the third group of followers?" B: "They're willing to blow up the entire planet."
H: "Oh. And why are they all doing this to each other? B: To prove which one is the true religion of peace.
H: I'll never understand how you guys made it to the top of the food
chain." B: "Well, they don't call it blind faith for nothin'."
