Well that certainly makes you more qualified to talk about the area than about 99% of the internet. That being said, I'm still not sure one can be bold enough to argue that this was Schulz intentionally mocking theology. From what I understand, while he may have developed a less formal faith in his later years, he was far from being anti-faith. I think it is much more likely touching on the fact that the average laymen's theology, which tends to be in many ways heretical and based more on personal opinion than on what the Bible/church actually teaches, usually gets them into trouble.

One such example (though I'm not claiming at all that he was specifically talking about this), is the so called "health and wealth," or "prosperity," Gospel, which teaches that God promises a person material blessings if they donate their money to the church. And the fact is that God promises no such thing to believers. In fact, Christians are promised, if anything, the contrary--that is, the likelihood that they will suffer for their faith. Although we are all promised peace (inner joy and comfort) amid tribulation, we are not promised deliverance from that tribulation.

Anyway, I might be wrong, but I at least don't think you can say as boldly as you did above that Schulz is clearly mocking theology here, especially since he used the word "theology" rather than "dogma." The former in no way implies forced religious belief, but only the belief itself, whereas the latter would be much more appropriate for that which you are claiming.

My apologies, I didn't realize that we had a Charles Schulz authority on Funnyjunk. How exactly do you reach that conclusion?

“I do not go to church anymore... I guess you might say I've come around to secular humanism, an obligation I believe all humans have to others and the world we live in". -Charles Shulz @ Easter 1989. I'm not a Shulz or Peanuts expert, I'm a English History Phd candidate preparing to defend my dissertation on graphic story telling. Peanuts was a game changer for newspaper comics.
