Description: A bunch of men are watching another man write the scriptures. One of them says to him, "We like our women submissive to us so write the scriptures in a way that will keep them there!"

A group of male disciples say to a few women, "So Ladies, thanks for being the first to witness and report the resurrection and we'll take it from here." I drew this cartoon "Women and the Resurrection" on Easter in 2018. I've been seeing it shared everywhere this year. And we've been shipping out prints of all different sizes of this as we as mugs, stickers, and greeting cards. (10% OFF coupon "EASTER2021" until tomorrow night.)
