This just in, the pope has commissioned a series of books on the life and times of Pope John Paul II. The first in seven will be called "John Paul and the Jesus Stone". Any semblance to Harry Potter has been flatly denied by head vatican officials. Thank you and good night.

adding to this LOTR was written by the very very religious J.R.R. Tolkien. How about that... now that we've all seen LOTR or (even better) read it, are we are now heathens??? What tripe.
