You know, Kirill, many of us are religious people here. I think it's interesting when people claim to love Tolkien, but hate his Catholicism and don't believe his statement that LOTR is a fundamentally Catholic work. If I claimed to love Tolkien, but refused to acknowledge, for example, the influence of Norse mythology on the legendarium, since I am not 'Norse', I could rightfully be accused of closed-mindedness and bias, couldn't I?

For myself, I will bow out of this thread, since I don't find your comments on religion respectful.

Sing and be glad, all ye children of the West,
for your King shall come again,
and he shall dwell among you
all the days of your life.

Now let the song begin! Let us sing together
Of sun, stars, moon and mist, rain and cloudy weather...
