Sam Brownback and Neverborn / All Wet

Senator Sam Brownback switches vote on cloture immigration amnesty bill to 'no' after defeat is assured

Click cartoon to view larger image. Largest.

I've been unable during the past few days to use the Edit Html command in blogger. The result is that I can't add alt tags and my index page images are a little smaller than usual, and of course it just takes longer to put it all together. I wonder if any other blogger user might be having the same problem?
I try not to explain my own cartoons (boring) but I wouldn't mind expelling a little hot air regarding the Senator Sam Brownback / neverborn cartoon above. I think the Senator has damaged himself as a spokesman for pro-life causes as a result of both his wishy-washedness on the cloture/amnesty vote and his subsequent explanation of his vote-switch, which I incline to view as fibbing.
Part of the Senator's problem might be some honest, down-to-earth confusion regarding his position, perhaps as a result of trying to synapse his pro-life idealism (respect all life and show mercy to the helpless) with the anarchistic political positioning of a U.S. Catholic church which isn't exactly leading morally on this question by both tactically and blatantly disregarding the law, which is meant to protect everyone, including those who risk their own lives and others by coming here illegally. Politicians such as Senator Brownback may site a deep respect for standards of theology when defending the unborn, the disabled and the old, but then develop a huge blind spot when it comes to recognizing that widely unenforced law against illegal immigration attempts to serve the same purpose; to protect life.
It cruel to enable a system wherein people are robbed, raped and killed in transit, exploited while living in 'the shadows', and live perpetually in fear of being blackmailed or deported. Family don't deserve to be separated and destroyed by illegal immigration. Police officers and border guards don't deserve to be injured and murdered. Children don't deserve to be born with parents who may be deported at any time back to their home nation. Citizens who could best spend resources helping their own families don't deserve to be coerced into supporting those who chose purposefully to break the law. Perhaps most importantly, those who come here legally don't deserve to have their patient respect for order and justice thrown back into their faces by politicians who refuse to enforce existing laws because, according to current convoluted logic, that application would be cruel.
Illegal immigration is a victim creator, just like abortion. I believe we can have both mercy and respect for our laws without allowing untenable good intentions to undermine both.

Obese Cuttlefish Dictator

Click image above to view larger cartoon. Largest.
Worked on three cartoons on Wednesday but completed none, hit my head on the wall a little, and then drew the above pencil drawing in a few hours early Thursday morning. Right now I like the POV, but I'm not certain how I'll feel later in the day.
One of the cartoons I'm working on is a new 'Paris Hilton', who in her recent interview with Larry King revealed that she's returned to attending Mass, and then Larry called her George. I guess Saint Gentian patron saint of hoteliers helped after all!

For Mayberry Pancakes at the faithmouse request thead at POE-

"I just got a part-time job at Victoria's Secret and my parents are afraid it's going to turn me into a terrible human being. Maybe you could draw them a cartoon to reassure them that I am still happy and Methodist? (There are some pictures of me here if you scroll down, but that's not necessary.) I think they would respect the word of a well-known Christian cartoonist." - Mayberry Pancakes
Can't log in at POE (Chet converged databases over the weekend) so as soon as I'm able to I'll post the above in addition to the next request in the thread proposed by thebaronsdoctor and Billings-a portly dictator cuttlefish.

Roy in his WHAT DO THE DRUMS SAY, RODNEY? post at alicublog says the following-

"I would advise you wash this garbage out of your brain with some hardcore pornography, but your work computer filters may not allow it, so use Faithmouse instead -- the guy is every bit as bigoted as Dreher, but clinically insane, which is much more entertaining."

Thanks to cartoonist Iron Spike who draws Iron Circus for this post in her Iron Sideshow Christianity and Atheism forum-

"This is how small the minds of some people are. They are completely incapable of comprehension. They can't understand that a person might come to a logic conclusion based of the evidence presented.

On the other hand, though, y'know who's basically OK with nonbelievers? This dude. We've linked each other. Do I agree with him on anything at all? Nope. Not a single thing. But can we have a civil conversation? Yoobetcha. Because he's not interested in saving me from myself. Maybe he recognizes it for the brainless condescension it is, or maybe I'm not worth the bother. Who knows. Point is, I'm not evangelized at."

That's true. I don't preach to anyone, other than just drawing and presenting the cartoons. Faithmouse is art which parallels my own personal convictions, but not necessarily so.

The ILXOR Come with me, come to the land of batsh*t rightwing cartoonist thread features a number of my recent cartoons and (following my diddling with their topmost faithmouse cartoon post) subsequent pro and con commentary, including -

"I dunno if faithmouse guy actually qualifies as right-wing anymore, he just seems to be a Big-Time Believer and doesn't participate as much in the incredibly knee-jerk authoritarian partisanship you see in the other strips. Compared to mallard etc. he's a breath of fresh air. "

"I dunno; the FM guy has his moments where there are weekly cartoons attacking the ACLU, showing them cavorting with terrists, or when the site reps for Alan Keyes or Sam Brownback."

" ..I didn't read the whole thread but I came here to say that FaithMouse doesn't deserve to be lumped in with the rest of this garbage. For one, instead of being nauseatingly simplistic it's often refreshingly inscrutable."

Latin Mass

Traditional Latin Mass, Tridentine Mass, Motu Proprio
Click above for larger image. Largest.

A cartoon on the subject of the anticipation of the lifting of restrictions on the traditional Tridentine Mass, better known as the 'Latin' Mass. The Latin Mass wouldn't replace the post Vatican II Mass-it's just that the lifting of restrictions (this one would be by personal accord of the Pope himself; a Motu Proprio) would allow priests to hold the mass without the prior approval of their local bishop, which should widen its usage. The word in the 'street' is that Pope Benedict's papal rescript allowing the restoration of the Latin Mass is on the way, but we're all still waiting. And waiting. And waiting.

This may be unpopular-but I have a lot of sympathy for Paris Hilton, influenced at least partially by her recent high-profile public appearances with a Bible and reports that she's praying while in jail. My previous Paris Hilton cartoon alluded to the fact that her great-grandfather Conrad, founder of Hilton Hotels, was a very committed Catholic.
