** In one tract, Jack rightly calls out the Jehovah's Witnesses on their absolute refusal to accept a blood transfusion. In fact, the consequences of doing so are the driving plot of the tract. Don't worry, the [=JWs=] convert in time to get the transfusion. But in another tract, the [[http://www.chick.com/reading/tracts/0072/0072_01.asp Mad Machine]], Chick demonstrates an attitude towards modern psychology very similar to [[WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill Hank Hill]], and recommends that anybody who is having mental problems should simply pray to Jesus.

* CaptainObvious: Jack Chick's [[http://www.chick.com/reading/comics/0112/albertoindex.asp "Alberto"]] found it necessary to fill the thing with [[UnwantedAssistance helpful]] definitions of complex words, like "deacon", and "sacraments" and "Dominicans". And "deny", "documents", and "intense". And "''stone''". He seriously found it necessary to tell us all what a stone is, while leaving terms like "ecumenical", "extreme unction", "nihil obstat", and "concordat" undefined. It turns out it's actually subverted, however: he fails to [[CriticalResearchFailure define stone correctly]].
