Khalid Sheikh Mohammed - Wikipedia

A form given to the Guantanamo detainees in late August and early September allowed them to request that the American Civil Liberties Union find them a lawyer, at no charge, to assist them in challenging the determination that they are enemy combatants... At least four of the detainees already have requested attorneys, according to people familiar with the process...

A hearty thank-you to Faithmouse fan Josh, who sends this email-

Dear Mr. Lacey,
I am an aspiring teenage cartoonist and artist. I love Faithmouse and I read it every day. If you have time, would you check out my blog, where I post my comics and other art? I'd love any advice you have to offer.
Anyway, keep up the good work! Down with the ACLU ferret!!!

Yes, I know-no new work posted in three days. I'm busily drawing, though.

In the meantime, a very worthwhile story-

a well ready to burst with love

I've earned a return link from CNN (under 'From the Blogs') without having posted an accompanying cartoon concerning the actual story at hand-just part of a rework of the 'previously previewed' Well Water cartoon.

Well, now I feel guilty.

Stop The ACLU Ferret / Birth of Taint

ACLU defends Abortion Industry in New Jersey Supreme Court reversal of Rose Acuna decision

Click above to view larger image. Largest.
For the Sunday Funnies at Stop The ACLU.

N.J. High Court: Doctors Need Not Tell Pregnant Patients 'Abortion Kills' - The Christian Post

The result of the New Jersey supreme court ruling cited in the cartoon above is that it's 'value-laden' and a 'non-medical moral judgment' to require a doctor to tell a patient that fetuses develop into human beings; that it would be a 'speech' to state what a woman must already understand, that abortion irrevocably ends a human life.

Faith's impulsive sister Taint becomes a little more than insulted here that the abortionist doesn't have the integrity to confess the obvious. She's getting an abortion, and he wants to pretend it could as well be a gallbladder. That's the game, and Taint hates games.

Let's imagine a similar medical situation-

Mother-"Doctor, I'm eight months pregnant. How's my baby?"

Doctor-"I have no idea if you have a baby in there or not, and I'm not required by law to give you that information."

Mother-"If it's not a baby, what is it?"

Doctor-"Beats me."

Only in a situation where someone is purposefully killing someone could it be legally verboten to be required to say what's actually going on. Medical personnel must tell you by law if they are sharing your dental x-rays with researchers developing tuna-flavored floss, but that the decision you're making this afternoon will halt a human life...why, what manner of anti-free-speech jackbooted thug are you?

Doctor-"Don't mind me, I'm just going to unplug your grandmother's clakkety-clak machine here."

Daughter- But, won't that kill her?"

Doctor-"Sorry, I'm not required to make those sort of value-laden judgments. I have my rights, you know!"

And so on.

I've read in a few forums (and it seems to be an unfortunate consensus) that a woman should already know what's happening when she has an abortion; she doesn't need to be reminded of the fact. In other words, a woman who needs to be told this must be dumb.

Woman-"Doctor, I'd like you to saw off my legs. Please don't tell me that I won't be able to walk."

Doctor-"But, you won't be able to walk."

Woman-"Got you, you value-laden bible-thumper!"

I have yet to see a study of any kind which shows that most women post-abortion don't suffer from depression and regret. And yet, the ACLU isn't championing the free speech rights of tobacco companies and demanding that they not be required to remind purchasers that smoking causes cancer-even though that must be obvious to all by now.

You tell me, unless of course you're an abortionist and not legally required to say.

A cartoon for Rosh Hashanah featuring Chaim, our Orthodox Israeli schoolboy. L'Shanah Tovah is an abbreviation of L'shanah tovah tikatev v'taihatem (May you be inscribed and sealed for a good year).

Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year and marks the beginning of the Jewish High Holy Days, a ten day period of reflection and casting away of sins, culminating with Yom Kippur-the Day Of Atonement.

Here's two previous cartoons featuring Chaim and Neverborn, presented in both English and Hebrew-

J.J. McCullough's Filibuster Cartoons

It's very humbling when J.J. McCullough thinks he needs to introduce himself to me-

Dear Dan, I've been an on-again off-again reader of Faithmouse for a while now. The other day I was taking a more thorough browse of your archives, to check out all the toons I missed. After having a thorough look, I just thought I should email you with some official words of praise.

I'm actually an editorial cartoonist myself. My name is J.J. and my site is I'm a Canadian Catholic, in fact I just got back from church! So let's just say I can appreciate your cartoons on two distinct levels. You are a very creative and talented person, and I hope you continue to share your gifts with the rest of us. Specifically, I hope you one day release a BOOK of your cartoons. I am sure it would be a hot-selling item!

Anyhow, just some words of praise. Keep up the great work-

Yours in Christ, J.J. McCullough

Oh wow, it's J.J. McCullough!

I've always thought your work was very sophisticated and insightful. I was feeling a bit depressed and lost today; thanks for making my day.

I don't know if you backtrack your referrers or not, but Pookie18 has been posting your stuff for the past few years in his Today's Toons compilations at FreeRepublic. You're pretty popular there.

Would it be okay if I give you a blogpost promoting your cartoon, and reproducing your email?

God bless you and Mr. Harper-

Abortion For Profit -

The cartoon above features a spot of my Shar Pei abortion doctor character, who first appeared in an unfinished cartoon on this site in November of 2006. I've revived the character for the McAbortion cartoon, which is taking a little longer to complete than planned (having a hellacious head cold has slowed the process as well).

Nice day here in Minnesota, but I hear winter's coming...

digital skyscraper
Click image to access Flash gallery.

I'm not the best choice to edit a gallery of my own work (very biased) but I think I've succeeded in creating an entertaining interactive skyscraper out of 341 of my previous cartoons. Enjoy.
At best, it's an indefinitive compilation-still needs tweaking. Some files I can't find, many I never did get around to posting, and others make me cringe upon rediscovery... hit the road, Jack! A few sketches and panels to unfinished cartoons are included here just to remind myself that they still exist and I should get around to completing them one year. Hey, it's a less cluttered place to shove them than my desktop. Many offsite cartoons aren't included here as well; you can find many of them at POE, which you may wish to visit just to view the photos of the giant Neverborn costume I'm creating at the Neverborn Comes Alive thread (progress slowed due to the original Faithmouses' recent gallbladder surgery, which she came through triumphantly).
I've also removed the links to a number of my side panel archive galleries, including the prayer, abortion, pro-military, Terry Schiavo and John Paul II cartoon galleries. Critics of the cartoon shouldn't take this as a sign that I've taken a turn against the military, prayer or Terry Schiavo. I'll repost these galleries as soon as I can afford them a proper update.

Stop The ACLU Ferret

Today's Stop The ACLU cartoon is still in progress, but here's a preview image. I'll post the completed cartoon sometime later this evening...

On second thought, it's not too bad.  My revised cartoon featured the ferret toting a large sack of crosses, bibles, religious statues, etc while peering deviously out of a similar big red NO.  Think I'll save that unposted toon for a rainy day.
