Which interpretation of Star Wars will you buy?

Is this what a “culture war” looks like?

The Christian interpretation?

Or the Buddhist interpretation?

    I tend to look forward to Wednesdays largely (well, besides meeting up with my youth group kids, of course *ahem*) for the Onion interviews.

    And although it wasn’t the best interview that either Sufjan or the Onion posited, it still made me smile.

    tee-hee.

    OK, I haven’t read ‘em, but I don’t plan on reading them either. Which, I think, is a waste. ‘Cuz I’ve felt like I always liked Staub. Am I just missing the boat here? Is Dick Staub able to transcend my worst fears about a “Christian” reading of Star Wars, or is this another weak attempt at a “The Gospel according to…”?
