No jump today. There was nothing printed on the back. I find it weird that these guys have printed their own, better quality tracts, and have their own timeslot on a televangelism channel, but still managed to print something this cheap and half-assed.
The text itself is pretty standard fare, and there's nothing particularly weird to comment on, although interestingly it looks like it's attempting to feed on social insecurity instead of fear of torture. Not that that's any less cheap a shot or anything.

Actually, now that I think about it, Haggis would actually make a good Last Supper substitute if you REALLY wanted to take the whole Lamb of God angle literally. "This is my body. Heart, lungs, liver, stomach and all."
Communion might get a bit awkward though.
But I digress. Hit the jump for the tract.

Sorry for the unannounced pause in content. I needed a week off. I'll give some forewarning if I ever do that again. Have a new background image to make up for it :3
Back to it then.
Back to it then.

Found this one on Buchanan Street a few weeks ago, and would have probably missed it entirely if I hadn't seen this guy a couple of times before. At the very least he seems to have hired someone to make cards that don't make your eyes bleed.

Fair warning: Lots of tl;dr gabbing ahead.
You know what, I'm going to put the jump here.

Back when I started collecting tracts, this was one I would find quite often. It's a plug for what I guess is a relatively new-ish church. Its members pop up every so often in the city centre to preach to folks, always handing out the same one or two tracts each time. On one occasion, they even staged a crucifixion re-enactment in the middle of Buchanan Street. I found the video and it's just past the jump.
also lol papyrus font.

So I keep finding these creepy letters in the phone boxes I pass, and this is one I got today. Is this something I should be concerned about? Someone is clearly trying to get my attention and they're being incredibly weird about it. Like one minute he's trying to push his sick, creepy, twisted idea of love at me, like how he is watching me everywhere I go even when I sleep, the next he's leaving me all these OTHER letters threatning to burn me alive if I don't return his love.
I'm starting to think I should go to the police and file a restraining order.

Slight overreaction I admit, but holy fuck damn it's a fucking Chick Tract I LOVE these things. They are like beautiful little pocket train wrecks of theology. Okay okay I know I covered one of these before at the very start of this blog, but this is TOTALLY different. For starters I'm going to cover the whole thing rather than just highlights, and two it's not a soggy copy which has been penned on.
SO we have some proper Chick coverage today folks. JUMP AWAAAAYYYY!

This was being handed out by some preachers on Sauchiehall Street last month.
Before, he had a hat, beard, and shades, and now he has a terrible haircut and vacant stare. TRULY this is a miracle.

Found this one on Saturday on the ground on Gordon Street. Unfortunately it was too soggy to open and I just binned it. By sheer luck, divine providence, or the fact that the same people had hit a few phone boxes that day, I found it in a different phonebox on the way to work the next morning.
Hit the jump for the inside. I think it's probably important to note at this point that this tract was WRITTEN FOR CHILDREN!

This is a handwritten postcard to you. Yup. That's right. You're special enough a friend to warrant a font that's meant to resemble handwriting. Seriously either type it using a typey font or actually write it by hand and photocopy it a bunch, but "handwriting" fonts invariably look lame.
But hey at least it's not Comic Sans.
Hit the jump for the inside.

This booklet promotes an upcoming series of things by the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God. I went into this one expecting plenty of dumbness, but upon further investigation of the church and people behind it, I think it's safe to say we have a cult on our hands......like, moreso than usual. We're off and in the deep end as far as OBVIOUS CON TRICKS are concerned here.
Go jump, and prepare for a booklet sized deal this time.

Another old one. Found on the ground on Sauchiehall street ages ago.
For some reason on the list, Islam gets mentioned three times and Judaism is missed out entirely. I like how Scientology gets a cameo as well.
Ehhhh. Hit the jump.
