Two New Chick Tracts

Chick Publications has released two new tracts espousing his peculiar brand of Christian fundamentalism.

The first, called "It's a Deal" depicts a young black youth who sells his soul to the devil in exchange for fortune and fame. Unlike the story of Faust, however, this one has a happy ending. However, the tract itself seems determined to strengthen many negative stereotype held against African-Americans.

The tract also asserts that even though someone has "died in his sins" he can be prayed back to life and yanked out of Hell, complete with a sulfur residue. I'd like to see any reports of doctors detecting sulfur after reviving a clinically dead patient.

The second tract, called Evil Eyes conveys Chick's animosity toward the Catholic Church. We see a hodge-podge of absurd elements here; namely, occult witchcraft is real and effective, people in comas are actually zombies, and that Catholics worship a dead Christ.

Thanks to Potoooooooo for the link.
