Wow, my post on Tolkien got a lot of Christian men triggered!

It seems that thousands of them read about the absence of religious references in the fiction of J.R.R. Tolkien — surprised?

I hate to break it to them. The Lord of the Rings is a story of a wizard and elves defeating orcs by helping Hobbits melt a ring. There’s no gestures to any deity, and no religious practices. It is not a Christian text.
