Posted in cartoons, Christianity, Church, Humour with tags , , , , , , , , on January 6, 2014 by cakeordeathcartoon

Thank you to everyone who emailed what they thought the answers should be to the previous post. Below are the answers as based on the Bible and various theologians. You may want to haggle about some of the answers but here they are:

TRUE or FALSE?

1. TRUE. Jesus was wrapped up in swaddling strips as opposed to a fluffy babygrow or a classy Christening gown.
2. TRUE. Mary was there.
3. TRUE. Joseph was there
4. FALSE. Jesus wasn’t born in a crib. He was born in a feeding trough.
5. TRUE. There was very likely cattle or other farm animals in the vicinity of the feeding trough.
6. FALSE. There were no kangeroos.
7. FALSE. The wise men only came much later when Jesus was an infant. And there were probably more than three.
8. FALSE. There were no Christmas trees.
9. FALSE. Or Christmas stockings.
10. FALSE. Or Advent calenders.
11. FALSE. Or Santa Claus
12. FALSE. Or an Angel. The angels all appeared before the birth itself.
13. TRUE. The shepherds were there.
14. FALSE. There were no giraffes.
15. FALSE. Herod’s soldiers only came much much later.
16. FALSE. It was unlikely there was a star hovering over the birth like neon sign. The wise men were astrologers from the East who would’ve seen unique star movements and patterns in the night sky.
17. FALSE. It is very unlikely that Jesus was born in winter.

Cake-or-Death-Christian-Church-Cartoons-by-Alex-Baker-Cartoon-317-(Apartheid-Cartoon-December-15-2013) In the month that Nelson Mandela passed away and Fox News’s Megyn Kelly asserted it’s a fact that Jesus was white (when as a Middle Eastern Jew two thousand years ago that was not possible), it’s worth remembering that Jesus would not have had a great time in Apartheid South Africa.

Cartoons on the radio

So last Sunday I was invited to talk about cartoons and faith on BBC Radio 4 for their Sunday show callled, not surprisingly, ‘Sunday’. I was joined by Zaineb Latif, a cartoonist who does work for Muslim News. We’d pre-recorded our segment because Zaineb is based in Canada so the time difference made it inconvenient for the live Sunday morning show. Pre-recording also meant our original conversation was longer than the final broadcast segment. It was enjoyable – both Zaineb and the host, William Crawley, were chatty and charming. It also made me long for the days when I was on community radio. Good times. Ahem, but back to this. It’s a fairly serious discussion – light on goofball jokes and “boom!” comedy zingers. So be prepared not to laugh.

You can listen to it on the BBC Website here (skip to the 13:14 mark) for the next seven days:

Or you can listen to that specific segment on Soundcloud.

One of the highlights of 2012 was having my cartoons translated into German by the United Methodist Church (Evangelisch-methodistischen Kirche) in Switzerland. They used them in their monthly magazine ‘Kirche und Weld’. The editor, the very cool Sigmar Friedrich, sent me some copies which arrived in the mail this week. Gott ist gut!
