Would the example strip for "Hooker with a Heart of Gold" also double for "Platonic Prostitution"? (When the man takes her home, it's so she can have coffee with his spouse.

I found interesting the fact that Quino happens to be an atheist:

"I donít believe in God, but I read the Bible a lot because itís a fantastic source of ideas. And if God doesnít exist, heís a very good subject. Heís a figure about whom itís impossible to be indifferent: everyone either loves him or hates him. And he keeps on popping up in my cartoons because in a way heís a character you can identify with. When you draw you create things with a pencil, and you can construct on paper all the different worlds that come to your mind. He may not exist, but as Borges said, itís enough to have a word that designates something for that thing to come to life. Furthermore, religion is like sex or drugs: it always sparks reactions and letters from readers, and I love that."

While is a curious fact indeed I'm unsure if it should be included in the article, opinions?

I don't know if there is a trope for when the author portrays something prominently despite not being a particular supporter of believer. It very surprising that he also portrays the Catholic church in an overall positive light.
