Andy thanks for the heads up on the bookThe Stars" by H. A. Rey you've made it sound fascinating. The sky over London, even on the best of nights isn't great, so a good book about the cosmos is always welcome. Thanks mate Stephen.
I'm not a political cartoonist. As a hobby, I just like to create art poking fun at religion on my website.
You were very fortunate to have escaped the full force of religious indoctrination, to which my mother subjected me as a child. While I appreciate that she thought it was in my best interest, I will never forgive her for it.
I will never forget the time she invited a Catholic Jesuit (they are elite branch of the RC church trained in philosophy and theology: aka "defender of the faith") to her home so he would "educate" me. I too was working on my degree in philosophy at the time and welcomed the dual.
What an asshole this priest was. Gulping my mother's scotch, he simply quoted verses from the Bible and proceeded to admonish my wonderful mother for "failing" to bring me up properly! She cried her eyes out. My poor mother. If only she could have appreciated the person she had as her son. Ah, religion. I just hate it.
