Question Everything

Nearly every day someone challenges me with the question, "What do you believe?" This isn't important. Nearly every day someone informs me that they can no longer follow me or read my blog because I offend them. Even yesterday, someone close to me told me to stop blogging and drawing such offensive material. I said I couldn't use that as a criteria or I couldn't write or cartoon at all. This person informed me that they will no longer be following me. There's nothing I can do about that. I question everything. That is what I do. As someone wrote elsewhere, I post "articles, comics and pictures often probing deeply into our unexamined preconceptions about God, church and life." To me, that is not only a valid enterprise, but a necessary one. For all of our beliefs are conditioned commitments. I have no intentions of disassembling ideas and beliefs only to replace them with my own. People aren't sure what I believe. Some aren't even sure if I'm a believer or an atheist, a deist or non-deist. This is only appropriate for what I am doing. Nothing deserves center. Each thought that exalts itself must be decentralized. So I question everything, hopefully humbly but effectively. But I will leave it up to you to decide, if your belief crumbles, what, if anything, to put in its place. Get fine art cartoon originals and prints. Get my original fine art paintings.
