    No matter how much Sparky denied it, this was the obvious subtext to the Great Pumpkin.

    I see “It’s the Great Pumpkin” as Sparky’s atheist side responding to his Christian faith as expressed in the Christmas special. It’s a conversation you can see playing out through the strip during the 50s and 60s, until eventually Schultz left the church. Not coincidentally, the strip never reached its previous creative heights.

    And here I thought the punchline would be Linus writing to President Obama…

    “I don’t want to know.” I think that sums up the religious mindset perfectly.

      I can see your mindset is similarly adequately summarized by “HA! HA! HA!!!”

    @Bob…are you saying that Jesus was helping Schulz write Peanuts?
    @Marciuliano…brilliant cartoon!

    No, I’m saying it was the angst-laden tension between his faith and his doubt that provided the strip’s power in its heyday.

    I’m waiting for a ‘B.C.’ strip with Jesus.
