I was recently given this comic book that a friend found in a nearby store. It was called: "Allah Had No Son" and I just honestly don't know what to make of it. There's only one hero, some white guy named Jesus Christ and one villain, a brown skinned man named Muhammad. I'm really not sure which one prevails in the end so I can only conclude that this is meant to be humor and not something to be taken seriously.
If I follow the basic storyline, a "Christian" father and son come upon a "Muslim" praying. The father says he's praying to his moon god and the "Muslim" gets offended and threatens to kill to the two "Christians". After a few pages, the father starts in about how Islam was founded on some old Arab mythology with a pantheon of Gods; whereas Christianity was the real true faith. Pretty funny shit- considering how much the Bible's Devil looks like the Greek god, Pan, and how many times I've seen pictures of the Christian God that look like the Norse god king, Odin.
The story ends with the Muslim converting to Christianity after the Jesus hero threatens him with some terrible place called "Hell", the place where the supervillain, Muhammed, was ultimately sent (apparently, this is the superhero's special power- sending souls into a fiery pit for all eternity- possibly something similar to Arkham).
The reason I'm not sure who actually won this cosmic battle is because on page four, the Muslim proclaims: "We expect a Muslim flag to fly over the White House in the near future. It will be the end of Christianity in America." This quote is never rebuked. So the Christians pick up one for their side and lose the whole U.S.A. to the other. Perhaps this some sort of victory to these particular comic book fans or maybe the writers just added it for the extra special comedy effect.
It came from the First Baptist Church in Paden City, West Virginia via some comic book manufacturer called Chick Publications. I always thought that right-wing Christian preachers and televangelists were pretty funny clowns until they start messing around with public institutions and legislation- a clear violation of what our Holy Starfleet Captains James T. Kirk, Jean Luc Picard, Benjamin Sisko, and Kathryn Janeway have tried to teach us.
May Batman take mercy upon our souls.
