I love it... great cartoon. I guess it could also say "I also don't like to talk with anyone else, only to them" :)

Actually, I've seen discontent be a great source of motivation. It can result in the creation of something better.
But "I get" the cartoon...

Well, then why doesn't he start his own church? That's what Protestantism is all about! Every gas station attendant, garbage man, housewife or ne'er do well who feels the need to run his mouth or lord it over people rents a storefront and starts his own "church"! If we're lucky, he'll go so far as to get a mail-order theology degree from some hokey seminary advertised in Charisma magazine!

When I saw the RSS feed "Cartoon: Am I Called to Preach?" I thought "Yes" then clicked the link.
Johann, you have a fairly accurate view of the Protestant system but a very (exaggeratedly?) dwarfed view of human discernment. Perhaps the Reformation has aided in the development of cults, but the Church is very diligent to recognize and denounce them. Indeed, I think the Reformation was just such a recognition and denunciation... But that's a whole other rant altogether.
