Happy Birthday, Professor Tolkien!

Happy Birthday, Professor Tolkien! January 3, 2019

I offer a rousing toast and a deeply grateful word of thanks for your evangelization of my imagination when i was but a downy-faced youth starting out in life. Beyond this, Tolkien, more than any other man, helped to train my heart in a deep suspicion of the corrupting effects of power. I will be grateful to him till the day I die for innoculating me with the gospel against the antichrist Christianist Freak Show now careering around the world and posing for the blind as some sort of representation of Holy Church.

God bless you, J.R.R. Tolkien. You were a spiritual father to me and one of the greatest apostles and missionaries who ever lived. You will have my thanks forever.
