Believe me, Jon, the thought crossed my mind many times, but I let the great debate go on just to see how petty, miniscule and warped some of the arguements could get. As usual, I wasn't disappointed. I actually contacted a couple of prominent scholars I know who followed along. They were shocked and annoyed at first until I explained to them that these were animation artists. Then they understood.
Yep, it's amazing how people who have never read the Old Testament are experts on Judaism. How folks who never cracked open the New Testament can tell you all about Christ. How those who never set eyes upon the Koran know Islam inside and out and how people who have no idea that Buddhist scriptures exist know all about Guatama Sidharta, let alone God.
But what really impressed these gentlemen the most was how quickly a churchgoing, cookie baking mother was verbally assaulted by this knowledgable artistic community simply because she said the "c" word. Makes me proud.
