Dilbert Hates Jesus

Scott Adams, the creator of Dilbert, has gotten himself in trouble. This past week a new employee, named Jesus (pronounced Hay-soos) has joined the Dilbert team. He is seeking twelve individuals to join him on a special project to upgrade their systems.

He later gets downsized but will return to save every one’s pensions.

Needless to say, people who pretend to be good Christians are up in arms over this, making fun of our Lord and Savior. I have enjoyed reading Scott Adams for some time now. I have never read Dilbert too regularly but I read Scott’s blog and am currently reading his book.

He’s funny. He uses words well. I enjoy his stuff. He also crosses many lines and it doesn’t surprise me that people feel he’s crossed one here. In response to a letter he received from a pastor protesting his comic, Scott says,

“Thank you for taking time out from feeding the poor to complain about comic strips. I know Jesus would have played it the same way.”

And, that right there, is one of the reasons I like reading Scott Adams!

One thought on “Dilbert Hates Jesus”

  1. That’s a really great comment. I had been following the story of Hay-soos and I thought it was rather funny.

    Here’s some news. Jesus is real. Comic strips are not.
