Chick Tracts and Jack Chick

If you've ever picked up a Chick Tract and read one, you know how rabidly anti-Catholic they are. Jimmy Akin recently posted to his blog, Defensor Fidei, what he calls "the original courtesy of the Jack T. Chick Museum of Fine Art," a site devoted to Jack Chick's tracts, featuring upon entry the famous tract entitled "The Death Cookie," referencing the wafer or host used in the Catholic Mass, complete with background music reminiscent of the theme from The Exorcist.

The good news is that the six-part Catholic Answers Special Report that Jimmy Akin wrote on "Chic Tracts: Their Origin and Refutation" can be found online. In addition, Akin also says that he will soon have online an article he wrote about his personal meeting with Jack T. Chick, which promises to be very interesting.

In passing, we also note that Akin was recently interviewed by BBC concerning Gibson's film, The Passion of the Christ--an interview that is apparently to be aired in a 5-7 minute segment on the BBC's Heaven and Earth Show.
