Grandpa's Eyepatch

Pharyngula wonders why little Susy's Grandpa in Jack Chick's religious tracts (e.g. this one) wears an eyepatch. It's obvious to me. Grandpa, like Jack Chick himself, interprets the Bible literally, and what happened to his eye is explained by Matthew 5.29:
And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
Note that it's over his right eye socket that Grandpa wears the patch.

I can't explain the bow tie.
