It’s Iimi! A Large Serving of Mammon

 It started out with the youth group discussing last week’s elections. It then moved on to the moral considerations Catholics must keep in mind if they want to put God first. Then, when Iimi admits she sometimes she gets perplexed by the Pope, the others are shocked. Is she having doubts about the Church? (TL:DR—No). These discussions come up as the country orders… A Large Serving of Mammon!

Pre-Comic Notes:
The Blog editor I'm using has some broken code. So, this comic had to be posted with the browser editor. Hopefully, some coding added to the site will make it look normal.

This comic was finalized before control of the Senate was finalized. The House is still not finalized. But, since this focuses on the Catholic moral concerns, that would not have impacted the final results.

I am very grateful to a webpage by Alkymyst that provided the needed code to post the pictures in a way that fits within the margins with no loss of quality

It’s Iimi! It Would Almost Be Comic If The Consequences Weren’t So Tragic

The attacks against Christianity are always debunked because the person either believes a false story or misunderstands the difference between Church teaching and the sinful behavior of someone in the Church. Some of these claims are quite risible and debunked before the toner is dry. Unfortunately, there’s always someone who rediscovers it and thinks it is the deathblow to the Christian faith.


One of these cases is the bizarre book of John Boswell that claimed Catholics had sanctioned “gay marriage” until the 14th century despite the fact of continued teaching to the contrary. Indeed the ceremony, called Adelphopoiesis, was simply a ceremony of spiritual adoption that existed in the Eastern Orthodox churches until the 20th century, and had nothing to do with sexual relations.


As Paula puts it, It Would Almost Be Comic If The Consequences Weren’t So Tragic.

It’s Iimi! Storm Brewing?

All Iimi and Krysta wanted to do was meet up with the others and hang out after school. All Krysta wanted to do first was to drop out of the Social Justice club, which she had strong moral reservations over. Unfortunately, Mrs. Otios saw the resignation as based in intolerance. Iimi reluctantly led the challenge to her assumptions: If imposing beliefs on another is wrong because values are relative (think about that for a moment), then doesn’t that make imposing values on Christians wrong? And if objective right and wrong exist, then what makes the attacks on Christian teachings right?

It’s Iimi! Stay In Your Lane!

One of the popular slogans used on social media when the Pope and/or the bishops come out and speak on a moral issue that goes against a specific faction is “The bishops should stay in their lane!” But since the Pope and bishops are supposed to guide, if we get angry with them over what they say, then maybe we are the ones who have drifted into the wrong lane.

It’s Iimi! The Fake Tricks

Sean Marcus wants to ask Iimi about the eviction moratorium being ruled unconstitutional and how it can be reconciled with being pro-life. Iimi points out that Sean needs to consider much more than “good guys” and “bad guys.” Will he consider her points? Or will he take the Blue Pill?

It’s Iimi! The Corpse in the Lab

In this episode, Iimi debates another Catholic about the tu quoque and special pleading that some use to condemn the other side for ignoring some pro-life issues... while doing the exact same things themselves. She points out that both sides are guilty and we need to fight to change our side, regardless of what others do or fail to do.
