Soul food! September 29, 2010 Posted by Mookie
I realized that since Karnak's reappearance in this story he hasn't been eating anyone. The only time he hasn't been chomping down on demon flesh was his brief appearance in THE SHADOW OF SIEGFRIED, but even then I'm pretty sure he was thinking about it.

Yesterday I mentioned a short series I watched thanks to streaming Netflix on my Wii called The Atheism Tapes. Now I want to recommend a documentary that, despite its title, is its polar opposite in purpose and subject called Lord, Save Us From Your Followers. At first I thought it was going to be something along the lines of Religulous (which I disliked), but instead this documentary was made by a devout Christian who not only remains remarkably moderate in his examination of the role of religion in the "culture wars" here in the U.S., but who ultimately calls upon his fellow Christians to be more tolerant, compassionate and loving to everyone, no matter how different they may be. I don't subscribe to any religion myself but I believe calls for empathy and charity are wonderful regardless of their source.

There's not going to be too much empathy, charity and compassion during this current story, though. We'll probably see more of Karnak having gruesome snacks.

Mmm. Soul food.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on.
