How to be a religious hypocrite

What's the difference between Judaism, Christianity and Islam? They all worship the same God. More than that, they all follow the same Commandments from the Old Testament. The 6th Commandment says "Thou shall not kill" (albeit with slightly different expressions depending on which book you read). The reason I wrote this comic is because of all the contradictions and hypocrisy around religion. Men that claim to follow their faith to the letter of the law ignore the dictums laid out to them when it doesn't suit their needs. Maybe one day they'll come to their senses. Until then, I guess we'll have to rely on the wisdom of little yellow men from outer space. (Oh dear, have I just committed heresy?)

The men from Zork are coming soon

They've been watching us for a while. Little yellow men from the planet Zork. They like us. Really like us. But they're also afraid of us. At our best, humanity is caring, intelligent, responsible and ingenious. At our worst, we're destructive, violent, mindless and paranoid. The men from Zork want to help us. So they've decided to live amongst us. To learn our ways and hopefully lead us to a higher plane of understanding and love (that said, we could fuck it all up before they arrive).
