Many funny strips were entered in this contest, and I shall mention a few runner-ups before getting to the winner. I mention them in chronological order.
I liked how, in "One of the Bible's Lesser-Known Lessons," wirthling made use of a Bible verse to support burglary. I looked it up in the Bible, confirming that he didn't make it up. This made his strip all the more impressive. I also like where Jesus says "Word," at the end, because it plays on both street slang and what Jesus is called in the Gospel of John.
I liked how, in "Dougan Tracts make witnessing easy," andydougan parodied a common theme in Chick tracts, that a morally bankrupt person can go to heaven merely by accepting the gospel.
I liked how, in "Love the Jewish People," Bogart parodies Chick's overenthusiastic, Old Testament-based, allegiance to Israel. Chick takes the Bible literally and firmly believes that palestine belongs to the Jews because God gave it to them in the Bible.
I liked how kaufman made tracts for various religions in "Chicklets."
"Get down and boogie with Chick" by DexX was amusing.
I was very impressed with Spankling's attempt to use Chick's own artwork. It was one of the funnier ones, though not quite the funniest. So my disqualification of it didn't affect its chances of winning.
The last strip, "When School's out ... for Jesus!" by Rev. Jim Bob Spittle, was also very amusing, especially since I am a humanist, and I like seeing Chick-style jabs at humanists.
Although there were many funny entries, the winning entry stood above the rest. "A Simple Strip Site" by Big Evil Dan was an excellent parody of a Chick tract.

So the next contest is Big Evil Dan's to run. Since it would be much harder to pick a second-place winner, I'll pick one only if Big Evil Dan hasn't started a new contest by Saturday.
