iHeaven? Try iBuddhist; editorial cartoonists imagine Christian afterlife for Steve Jobs
The Cagle Post | ABC News
Daryl Cagle writes that all those cartoons portraying Steve Jobs in heaven are ironic, considering he was influenced so much by Buddhism: "We often see editorial cartoonists imposing Christian imagery on non-Christians when they die. (After all, only one religion can be right, huh?) Comedian George Carlin, a famous atheist, found a Christian heaven in many editorial cartoons. When Beatle George Harrison, a Hindu, died, the editorial cartoonists drew dozens of cartoons with George showing up in Christian heaven." Cartoons portraying Jobs in heaven were the most popular among the ones Cagle syndicates; he published several of them on his blog. || Related: Commenters criticize The New Yorker for its cover portraying Saint Peter checking Steve Jobs into heaven with an iPad.
