this is not accurate

but I'm too lazy to actually write a paragraph explaining why, so here's a thing I just did, also kind of lazily

I no longer see her doing anything wrong. She's doing what nuclear energy companies and oil companies have been doing for the longest time: Trolling environmentalists and raping all that is ethically organic for personal gain. Good for her.

If you were going to eat charred cow smothered in cheese, with a side order of potato strips made as crisp as ancient papyrus by immersion in boiling oil, and if you were going to wash it all down with either satisfying quantities of icy beer or a milkshake containing the caloric equivalent of an entire roasted pig, then this fabulous consumption ought to occur in an ambiance that virtually screamed guilty pleasure, if not sin. The lighting should be low and warm. Surfaces should be dark–preferably old mahogany, tarnished brass, wine-colored upholstery. Music should be provided to soothe the carnivore: not the music that made your gorge rise in an elevator because it was played by musicians steeped in Prozac, but tunes that were as sensuous as the food–perhaps early rock and roll or big-band swing, or good country music about temptation and remorse and beloved dogs.

Well, maybe not destroy, and perhaps I'm misremembering. They're really very much not on good terms, I seem to recall..

Also that drawing is awesome. that's LAZY?!

...Well, to be fair it does depend on interpretation. But I'd say God is of indeterminate gender and of metaphysical nature. Far from the concept of a 'bro,' dude or otherwise.

People have been doing much worse to God in the past comics and all he did was make fun of them. This isn't the good or evil God from the Bible, this is just a God of no shits to give and likes to mess with you.

I bet he's too busy lol-ing at the Devil that he doesn't see Xanthe pick up any tears.

edit: also why would he care if Xanthe got some of his tears? How is this something to be mad about?

seeing as I just painted over a panel from yesterday's comic without really adding much to it (or changing anything*) but color and linelessness and maybe a bit of texture, and without much consideration or consistency on any of those things (but plenty of muddying them up), yeah

*oh wait, I made the lighting more confusing
that totally counts as a change
yay, I changed something

good point - after all, he did just cry a whole river of them. most of them were just going to waste.

You'd say that, but a great many Christians wouldn't, and the English translations of the bible use 'He' to refer to god. Pretending that because you're enlightened enough to not think of god as having any particular gender means that other people are clearly thinking the same thing is really silly. Doing that you ignore the people who think

Quote:
"He made man in His image."


means that god is clearly a male person of the man persuasion.


Also, my question was why someone else can't refer to god with gendered pronouns, not whether god has a gender. Other people can do what they please (within legal limits), and since other people can and do believe different things than you do, I don't see why you're saying that Tat can't or shouldn't portray god in whatever way suits his purpose. If Tat doesn't share your beliefs, or if Tat is portraying god as a dudebro for the purposes of his story, why should he do what you suggest?

It's pretty obvious the Sinfest "God" is the biblical male one. And yes, that guy was a bit of a dudebro. Smile

I wonder what the energy value of female tears in the Sinfest-verse is, compared to that of male ones? Are they equivalent, or are the tears of men specially potent? It is conceivable (though terribly dystopian) that the Patriarchy powers its fascist technologies with female distress. If so, female exploitation of male suffering is still in its early days, and has a long way to go before it reaches the efficiency with which Devilcorp fuels its factories, programming-mills, and fleets of drones. But if the Sisterhood could obtain an approximately equal level of displeasure-derived power - perhaps increasing the sum of male suffering a little, in harmless ways, should it fall short of the systematic suffering caused by the Patriarchy - the Sisterhood would be able to ride within mecha, and go on Godzillan rampages. I look forward to that day.

No reason to do what I suggest or want. I just didn't like this one particular strip. Be cool.

I think God is a cell.

If Jesus is God, and the Holy Spirit is God, and the Holy Spirit is Jesus, then the easiest explanation is that the original God-thing reproduced by cell-division.

Or something like that. I did only marginally better in High School Biology than I did in High School Chemistry. And I didn't do well in Chemistry. Can't even look at rugby posts anymore.

I just call Him Big G; pretty sure other characters have called Him that.

Or maybe they'll eventually pull a Monster's Inc and learn tears of joy are a million times more powerful. I do like the idea that the devil is also using tear power. Explains why he want's so many souls to torture in hell too. Guaranteed power supply!
