Beware Black Friday!

I've been on the mailing list for the Tim Todd Revival Fires/Truth for Youth ministry ever since I bought a copy of their Truth for Youth bible to add to BB's collection of weird and wonderful Christian printed ephemera. Normally I would unsubscribe from such lists soon after discovering I'm on them, but I've kept this one going because it keeps me in touch with the wacky world of fundamental missionaries.

One week they're saving Africa, another week they're sending stuff to the troops in Iraq. This week they are girding their loins and dusting off their loudhailers in preparation for the release of the film Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire:

The dangerous spiritual nature of the new Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Movie due to come out on Friday, July 13, is exposed through the comic book, Hairy Polarity and the Sinister Sorcery Satire, published by Revival Fires International located in West Monroe, LA.

This 32 page, colorful and informative comic book may be viewed and purchased online at and in “Revival Fires Crusades” across America.

“While Harry Potter is popular even among many Christians, it presents a Godless universe, one in which the most powerful wizard wins,” says Evangelist Tim Todd, President of Revival Fires International. “The hero is a wizard who shows no evidence of belief in God and does not use the power of prayer to combat evil. This is not the vision of the universe that Christian parents should want to instill in their children; nor is “white” magic an appropriate response to evil.”

The Hairy Polarity Comic is also included in the popular Truth for Youth, which has been enthusiastically endorsed by Pat Boone, the late, Bill Bright, the late, Jerry Falwell, T.D. Jakes, Actor Dean Jones, Art Linkletter, Rod Parsley, Michael Reagan and many other prominent leaders. Truth for Youth bibles may be purchased at

The Truth for Youth, designed by Todd, is a New Testament with powerful comics that deal with “absolute truths” from a biblical perspective, addressing the moral issues that young people are confronted with. More than 1.2 million copies have been distributed to youth in an attempt to respond to the liberal agenda that is being promoted aggressively in public schools.

Todd concludes, “The Hairy Polarity comic book creatively informs the reader of the many explicit examples of appalling evil in the Harry Potter Movie, such as, blood sacrifice, animal sacrifice, demon possession, levitation, divination, shifting humans into animals, communing with the dead, bringing evil wizards back from the dead through the shedding of blood, only to mention a few.”

As we approach the release of the new and last Harry Potter Movie, Todd is encouraging concerned parents and leaders to obtain quantities of the Hairy Polarity and the Sinister Sorcery Satire comic book and distribute them as an informative resource. The Hairy Polarity comic book and the Truth for Youth Bible are both available at

You'll notice that I'm not afraid to hand over their contact details. Go nuts. I highly recommend both publications for a really ridiculously stupid read. I've reviewed this comic before; their version of the Bible is very entertaining as well, with extra comics about converting gays and vanquishing other enemies of the free world.As far as I'm concerned, this all revolves around humourless and unimaginitive people using fear to enforce their narrow-minded views. I'm just counting the days until Tim Todd is arrested for some really juicy scandal involving transgender crack dealers in witch costumes. It's bound to happen, don't you think?

And in the meantime I shall go on reading the books, watching the movies, and counting the days.

Why doesn't Batman have footnotes? This is an appalling oversight.

If I didn't know better, Phil, I'd think you were making fun of footnotes. Footnotes are wonderful!

There are some guys who spruik Christian propaganda at almost every alternative event and venue possible. Polyester Books in Fitzroy sells small, innocuous-looking comics that turn out to be about the Rapture, etc. They'll sell the same comics at zine fairs and other venues (makes a nice change from all the political propaganda, anyway). I initially thought they might be the same ones behind this Harry Potter send up, but then again, probably not.

I'll read it but not to go to town on their stoopied Xian asses but because "Hairy Polarity and the Sinister Sorcery Satire", well, that's golden!

Hairy Polarity! They slay me!

Of course they do, Nick. Slaying unbelievers has never been an issue, I believe.

Ampersand Duck said...

Thanks for the tip-off, TimT. You're always welcome to send us anything hilariously wacky that you come across and we will pay you back! Only if you think of it at the time, of course.

AHHH if you want wacky crap then I'm in the middle of it all.

If i only knew I would have sent you the Anti Darwin Fish card that was placed in our car window when we were at dinner last week.
We have a a Darwin Fish on the back so i think we were targeted. It was babble and my Mother In Law ripped it up before I could stop her and stick it on the fridge.
My MIL rocks.

TimT said...

Lol. Well, I did have notional plans for (whispers) another zine (/whispers), so who knows?

Cozalcoatl, where do you get the Darwin Fish sticker?

"As far as I'm concerned, this all revolves around humourless and unimaginitive people using fear to enforce their narrow-minded views."
How are Christians narrow minded? They believe that the one true God created the entire universe using only words! Look at the complexity of the human body. All this came from one single celled organism? Darwin himself said there was no way man was formed by random evolution. Evolution goes against the laws of physics. If you take an apple, cut it in half, and leave it out for a while, it begins to rot, or become more simple. Evoution says that an apple should become more and more complex instead of becoming more simple. In recent news, all of the evolutionary steps have been proven wrong, either some form of ape or modern man...
