The World as it Seems in Texas

The latest issue of The Journal: News of the Churches of God is out.

And if I had no other good reason to be thankful for living a very long way from Texas, this would be sufficient.

Take the page 3 cartoon for Exhibit A.

Yes, I know Texas is famously Republican, and that WCG founder, Apostle and Pastor General Herbert W. Armstrong was a big fan of the GOP and luminaries like Nixon.

But is it appropriate to splash something as blatantly political as this across what is essentially a Christian publication?

Are there no Democrat supporters in the COGs?

Okay, about the same proportion as in the NRA. But there's nothing to recommend this kind of Fox News arrogance. The word that springs to mind is inappropriate.

Mr Clayton might consider selling this kind of thing to Willie Dankenbring, but I'd like to think The Journal had more credibility than Prophecy News Flash.


  1. Don't know for sure how many Democrats there are in the various COGs? But, liars, racists, and thieves are not very popular in these organizations; and that pretty much describes the modern-day American Democratic Party.

  2. Larry, Are you sure you weren't talking about the American Republican Party? I've seen those same terms (liars, racists and thieves) used to describe them.

  3. yes Miller, that is probably the case, but the people who say that about Republicans in general, don't know what they are talking about.
