We stepped into the Delta lounge to await our flight to Greece where we will meet our group of 95 excited pilgrims for our St. Paul cruise.

A guy sat down next to me and said, “How you doing?” I said, “Great, we just voted for Trump and we are on our way to lead Catholics on the footprints of St. Paul through biblical lands. We are converts to the Catholic Church.”

He said, “Really, I’m a convert to the Catholic Church too…”

You can imagine the conversation we had for the next half hour :-)

The moral of the story is — don’t be shy and embarrassed about your faith and what you believe in.

You may be amazed to discover that more than 50% of the people in the room agree with you and they will be all smiles and excited to find out that someone has the courage to say what they also believe but are too shy to say!

Screen Shot 2016-10-25 at 8.30.15 AMI remember handing out those cartoon Chick Tracts when I was a Protestant. As uninformed as I was, I liked the simplicity and brashness of the little booklets. Now I know how crude and deceptive they were. Jack Chick just died and Jimmy Akin wrote a bit about it.  

First Jimmy writes about Nine Things To Know About Jack Chick, and second he wrote of his meeting with Chick. You can read that story below. Jimmy wrote, 

Anti-Catholic comic book writer/artist Jack Chick passed away on Sunday, October 23, 2016.

Eternal rest grant to him, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon him.

Screen Shot 2016-10-25 at 8.33.58 AMAs far as I know, I’m the only Catholic apologist ever to meet him.

Below is an account of that meeting, originally published in the March, 2004 issue of This Rock (now Catholic Answers Magazine).

For decades the cartoon tracts of Jack T. Chick have fascinated and horrified. Their pages contain the most extreme, paranoid conspiracy theories imaginable. Among other things, Chick publications will tell you that:

  • the Catholic Church keeps “the name of every Protestant church member in the world” in a “big computer” in the Vatican for use in future persecutions (see his tract My Name . . . In the Vatican? );
  • through the Jesuits, the Vatican runs an extensive conspiracy that includes the Illuminati, the Council on Foreign Relations, international bankers, the Mafia, the Club of Rome, the Masons, and the New Age movement, among others (Four Horsemen);
  • the Catholic conspiracy also includes creating venomously anti-Catholic movements such as Communism, the Ku Klux Klan, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormonism, and Islam (The Big BetrayalThe Godfathers: Alberto Part ThreeThe Force: Alberto Part FourThe Prophet: Alberto Part Six).

Screen Shot 2016-10-25 at 8.30.32 AMChick’s material is weirdly compelling. It is amateurish, lurid, ham-fisted, and viciously hateful at times. But it is intense, and something about that intensity makes people want to read it. His tracts generate a kind of bizarre fascination. Since he first began publishing them, Chick has distributed over half a billion, making him the most published comic book author in the world.

Yet little is known of him. The seventy-nine-year-old Chick is a recluse. His office does not give tours, he never allows his photo to be taken, and he never, ever gives interviews. Little is known about him beyond what is revealed in the biography on his web site,

What Bible Verses has the Church Defined – Definitively? (links fixed)

October 19, 2016

It is sometimes mistakenly charged that Catholics are not allowed to read the Bible for themselves and that the Catholic Church has dogmatically defined about every verse — and forces its interpretation down everyone’s throat. This is very far from the truth. In fact, the Catholic Church has never come up with a list of verses […]

Is the Mass really a Sacrifice? A Primer on the Mass

October 14, 2016

In 1 Corinthians 10 Paul compares three sacrifices, that of Israel, that of the pagans and the sacrifice of Christians. He speaks of the Table of the Lord which the Old Testament prophets explained as an altar of sacrifice (Malachi 1:7-12). Look at the chart below and see if Paul didn’t clearly view the Eucharist […]
