Update on B.C.
Reader ejswanso informs me that this is far from the first time B.C. has been a platform for Christian intolerance. Read more from the First Amendment Center and the Washington Post.
For the record, I have no problem with newspapers running B.C. I personally don't enjoy it, but I don't enjoy Ann Coulter's syndicated column, either. That doesn't mean newspapers don't have the right to run it. But what bothers me is how often newspapers back down when critics on the right complain about comic strips. Many newspapers would never dream of running a comic strip attacking creationism, but they have no problem running a comic strip attacking evolution.
