Proctor's strip emotionally neutral 'poses no real threat to our beliefs'

Editor:

I am writing in response to all of the "deeply offended" Catholic Christians out there who have found it necessary to flood the Wildcat with letters of severe disapproval over Josh Proctor's comic strip last week.

I was one of the multitude of Catholic Christians who read Proctor's comic, and I don't feel it's worth all of these outraged letters. The comic was neither knee-slappingly hysterical nor horrendously offensive. C'mon guys! How many other religions are criticized or satirized or just plain made fun of on a regular basis? Josh Proctor poses no real threat to our beliefs, he just wrote a strip that he thought was amusing and had it published. I think my faith in my own beliefs is strong enough that I don't have to worry about one man's misguided rhetoric.

I'm not going to ramble on as everyone else has seen fit to, but I am going to say to my fellow Catholics get a sense of humor! These are not the days of Roman persecution, and we all need to get over our martyr complex, okay? Proctor wrote the strip which offended some people, and I don't think he should be crucified for it.

Oops, did I say that?
