Slackers Go to Hell

So I found this little guy at one of our local Goodwills:


I don’t think they were actually selling it; it was just nestled there, among the half-used candles and electronic detritus. (Note that I’m not sharing this to poke fun at anyone’s beliefsI just think it’s funny that someone hid this in a thrift shop like a bear trap in the woods, lying in wait for some atheist hipster to stick their paw in.)

slackers-tract-2 This is actually the second time I’ve encountered a Chick tract (or derivative thereof; this one’s from the Fellowship Tract League) in the wild during one of my yard sale adventures. The first was when I was in high school: The guy running the sale took one look at me (and my then-bubblegum-pink hair), reached into his pocket and handed me a tiny comic book. “Here,” he said. “You look like you could use this.”

…It was about teenage suicide (and how you shouldn’t do it).

I can’t remember a single thing from Earth Science or even, like, what Earth Science is, but “you look like you could use this [comic about teenage suicide]” is going to stick with me for the rest of my godda–

Errr, I should say, the rest of my gosh-darn life.
