Toon 5/19/05

The cartoon above was meant to debut tomorrow, but it's progressed so quickly I've decided to go ahead and post the 'in progress' version. It refers to the recently introduced HR235, a bill which removes the 1952 IRS regulation repressing speech in churches. You can read more about this proposed legislation at Alan Keyes' Renew America.

I had in mind the very British editorial cartoonist Carl Giles when I started this cartoon, the 'very' being the primary reason his work is largely unknown in America, and in the secondary because the phrase 'out of sight, out of mind' applies particularly well to editorial cartoons. A few years ago I wrote a few words about the great Giles; you can read them here.
