    I found the handwritten comments scrawled over the cartoon to be difficult to read. I have typed them up below in case anyone wants to know what the person wrote without spending undo amounts of time trying to decipher their chicken scratch. Their handwriting isn’t bad, it is just that it is is written at different angles and over-top of other stuff, and that makes it difficult to read:

    How can you, a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ be such a deceitful hypocrite? You’re not fooling anyone but yourself with your nauseating talk about non-violence. you demand a program to overcome poverty and “flow in [?]” untold amounts in your high living and running all over the globe to feed your own egotism.
