Goodbye, BC April 9, 2007

Posted by gregquill in Uncategorized.

Johnny Hart, the creator of the comic strips BC and The Wizard of ID, died on Saturday of Easter weekend.  He was 76. I appreciated the Christian messages he wrote in the strips.

This one was controversial.  (Click here for a copy which can be enlarged by double clicking:  www.hollywoodjesus.com/BCcomics_easter.htm.)

Some criticized it as destroying the menorah for the cross, i.e., replacing Judaism with Christianity.  But, to me it brings Christ’s real message on this subject to Easter: “I came not to destroy, but to fulfill.”

I saw that one and it didn’t bother me at all, but I do see how Jewish people could be offended.

I didn’t know he died either.
