Chick Tract Review: Lisa
Fundamentalism is not always just wrong. Sometimes, it’s also evil. This blog is worth following. Also, Chick Tracts have a litigious reputation, so I suspect some of these posts may not be online forever.
Jack Chick sez: Pornography triggers sexual perversion.
This shameful tract is no longer in print, and isn’t even available on the Chick Publications website. However, it is included in the book Hot Topics, in which Chick and the equally insane David W. Daniels tackle six of the “hottest issues of our times,” most of which seem to involve different permutations of gay people and child molestation. And Dungeons & Dragons for some reason.

This is the most fucked up thing I have seen in a very long time, possibly ever.
Well, yes. It’s so fucked up that even Jack Chick himself wants to forget it was ever made.
The other “Old Shame” that Chick has tried to toss down the memory hole is called Wounded Children. It’s even worse–basically seeing porn as a kid will make you a pervert, then gay, then a cross-dresser. But once you accept Jesus, you’ll magically be back to normal!
I remember reading this when I was 5 years old. Chick Tracts were available for free in the lobby of churches we went to, and as a child I was attracted to the comic format. They gave me nightmares for years. Only by seeing them again as an adult was I able to fully put the memory triggers to rest. This one is arguably Jack’s worst. Absolute immoral horrendous thinking on display here. What a sick joke.
Ah, man, this takes me back.
In the deepest, darkest days of my fanaticism, the Jack Chick tracts put me completely over the edge into crazy town. I was terrified I was going to hell, and more-or-less nonfunctional. Finally my parents called our preacher to the house to talk to me about my problems. They had no idea what was going on with me, and I couldn’t explain it.
Bob, my preacher, asked me where I had been getting these crazy ideas from, and I showed him my massive collection of tracts. He took them out to the garbage can in the kitchen and threw them out, then he went to my mom and said, “Sally, do not let Kevin buy any more of these, and don’t you buy any for him. These are extremely dangerous to kids.”
To me he said – and this is a Fundamentalist preacher here, remember – he said, “Kevin, it is not surprising you’re scared. The entire purpose of these things is to quite literally scare the hell out of you. They think terrifying you into good behavior is the Christian thing to do, and they’re wrong.”
