Christians are Morally Compromised
To Christians, this story is about the right of God to do anything he wants as the all-powerful-creator. Or, it’s about purification through suffering (even though Job was pure and righteous). Or, in the broadest sense, it’s about bad things happening to good people and the fact that there is, really, no explanation for that. Personally, I think it’s as stupid as God asking Abraham to sacrifice Issac. If God is omniscient, why does he have to have tests of faith?
That last one
Let’s just bottom line it. Would this be an establishment of religion created by the SCOTUS passed on to “closely held corporations?” What the hell is a closely held corporation anyway? Why do corporations have the right to exercise their religious beliefs over mine just because they may be paying for my government mandated healthcare? Same reason, I guess, that oil companies can fuck up the environment for everyone, then not be taxed or fined when they break the law. When will this corporate favoritism end?
Cover pencils by Jack Kirby for CAPTAIN AMERICA #105, already heavily altered by other hands to change the position of Cap’s legs. The final cover would be largely redrawn by other people, including Jim Steranko, John Romita and Dan Adkins.
This is one of my all time favorite Cap covers but to see Kirby’s original pencils is stunning. The only thing I can say about the one that was finally used is, technically, it does have better balance and your eyes are jumping from Cap and each villain as they should. Kirby’s, on the other hand is the more logical of the two. I like them both.
"We are breaking a new record in the U.S., and it is not one we want to break: According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, measles cases are at a 20-year high. As of May 23, more than 288 cases have been reported this year. To put that in perspective, only 37 cases were reported in all of 2004. In 2002, measles had been declared eliminated in the Americas."
