* StopHelpingMe: Needless to say most Christians would rather not receive help from a man who's convinced that the Catholic church is at the head of a global AncientConspiracy trying to sell the world to Satan.

** Esau. The tracts involving the story of him and Jacob seem to imply that he deserves God's hatred for not valuing his birthright enough, and [[LeonineContract trading it for food when he was (possibly literally) starving]]. The fact that Jacob tricked their father into giving him a blessing and later reconciled with him when he was older don't seem to deter Chick from using them as parallels to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

* HoYay: Jim and Tim, "The Crusaders," from Chick's full-length comics are a pair of [[ManlyGay beefy]] PlatonicLifePartners with a fondness for tight t-shirts and calling each other things like "bright-eyes." In discussions over whether or not Chick is a [[PoesLaw Poe]], these two tend to be brought up.
