Story here.

The religious content of some of his more recent cartoons has been controversial at times. But I have to say, at a very low moment in my faith in the early 1990s, I was buoyed just a tad when I accidentally discovered one of his Christian-themed B.C. strips on a bus ride home. I can't help but think of him somewhat positively, thanks to that, even if I didn't find his strips all that funny most of the time.

I agree; The Wizard of Id and B.C. were at times, the best thing in the comics section. I remember some of his Easter strips, too.

Ah, RIP. I guy who was of faith, paid to be funny, and also really funny too. A rare combination.
