Smith offends GOD

The supreme being today announced that his honor had been insulted by The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith’s popular comic strip The Second Coming.  Accordingly he has challenged Smith to a duel.  The two will settle the matter with pistols at dawn tomorrow.  GOD is widely believed to be the better shot, but Smith has previously felled such worthy opponents as Archduke Mortimer IV and Lord Harrington of Ames.
