No Symbolism To See Here; Move Along

“I was reading ‘Lord of the Rings’ the other night, trying to let
my mind escape from the impending doom that awaits us all, and I
realized that Aragorn kicked some serious Orc ass, helped defeat the
forces of evil and became king, all without even saying the word ‘God.’
The best stories are not about mystical religious powers, but men and
women with strong moral courage that they didn’t get from quoting
chapter and verse.” – Michael

Perhaps a Catholic Tolkien fan ought to inform Mr. Mastroianni of the
humerous irony of his statements. 😉
