Reactionary Catholics Warn of the Evils of J.R.R. Tolkien

You knew it had to happen.  In the ever purging and purifying world of uber-super-pure Reactionary Catholicism, the Lidless Eye has finally turned its gaze upon Tolkien and found him to be Not Really Catholic.  Rorate Coeli run the demented analysis and then passive-aggressively takes it’s hand off the piece with one of those lame “I’m just sayin’” disclaimers by which passive-aggressive weenies attack people while trying to wash their hands of responsibility.

I particularly like the way Charles Manson and drug abuse somehow get dragged into this Kitchen Sink Plus “analysis”.
