A tract by Jack T. Chick,
published in 2000.
Theme this time? "Witchcraft is eeeeevil. And don't do Drugs, Man." All inspired by a popular TV show.
The tract opens warmly. Literally.
Satan is having a meeting in Hell, but before the people of the
Netherworld have their meeting, the big S wants to see his favorite TV
(You read that right. Apparently the Lord of Darkness is getting
lazier over time and has the long-term goal on becoming a couch
potato. I wonder if Satan also likes zappily flavored crisps?
In that case, in longer run, we probably don't need Armageddon because
Satan will get so much overweight that he won't be able to move. So,
isn't Satan watching TV a good thing? Handsome potato for an
impressively carved couch, too. But I digress... Sorry, I won't do
Satan thinks the show paved the way for all occult and vampire
programs that are really popular these days. Yep. Sort of like
Satan's ghastly lieutenants report that sales of ouija boards
has risen, and drugs are selling really nicely. Astrology book sales
soar, one lady even was reported to say that astrology should be
taught in schools.
On the background, graphs show steady, exponential growth of
Anarchy, Pornography and Homosexuality. One ghost-faced
lieutenant tells that One World Government is coming, with Satan's
people in lead.
(But hey, if the first-mentioned graphs work as they seem, perharps
the pr0n-spreading gay anarchists will ruin the Satan's world government
plan. Oops, sorry, I promised not to digress.)
Further, while Bible-believing
churches exist, the Satanic ecumenical movement will deal with
that. (I was wishing to see open hostility from JTC
against ecumenical movement - so far, I didn't see it, but this was
a direct hit, I'm sunk.)
Satan seems to have a single problem, a girl called Ashley who's
into drugs. Her grandmother is praying for her.
Ashley has taken LSD and Speed. She attends a medium's
session who summons her mother's spirit there...
She goes to see her grandmother, who talks about Nasty Things like
familiar spirits and how they're evil according to the
Bible (Lev. 20:27)
That Satan's hitman gives Ashley then a nasty flashback, and she
sees her face melting when she looks at mirror. Heart attack.
Grandmother keeps praying, and Ashley wakes up, grandmother tells
her that Jesus is the only way and Ashley accepts him as the
savior and she dies but goes to heaven blah blah
All in all, pretty amusing tract, especially the beginning shows
that Chick is one of those people who put "mental" in
