    Certainly quite the Jesus retelling.

  2. Grioffa says:

    I love the part about the politicians!

  3. Stig says:

    It is easy to convert politicians. Just have the priests tell their followers that the politician is appointed by God.

  4. Cornbread says:

    I like the subtle implication in that the line “There is rarely any good to be had in raising the dead” appears above the good man cradling a baby; apparently, one of the few times it is good to raise the dead is when the dead were too young to die.

  5. Murasaki says:

    Stig has a good point.
    Also….The sure poetry of the myth, up to now,
    kept me from commenting on the last few pages.
    I just had to keep reading, no waiting….

    But there where two really funny lines in this one…so yeah, I commented.
    But not on them, cause I got distracted. Whatever.
    Yay for converted politicans, raising the dead (only sometimes), and embellishments.
    ….which makes it 3 funny lines. Ehh….

  6. Biddo van Oduk says:

    Until the baby raised has a terrible, tragic, life, and great pain left as a legacy. And then you think “Wow, I don’t know if the Creator has a ‘Grand Plan’ for all things, but I just realized *I* sure as hell don’t!’.
    Right after I came to that realization, I stopped mind-controlling my followers…

  7. Saskfan says:

    Okay, this made even my wife laugh. Converting politicians; quite the trick. And hard to keep them converted. They tend to backslide SO easily.

  8. SwissChopstix says:

    I’ve always wondered why Jesus raised the dead if they were already in a better place.

  9. BunnyRock says:

    @Biddo van Oduk: Narrative misfortune syndrome?

    Converted to what?
