Tolkien absolutely DESPISED allegory. Completely and utterly hated it. He was a devout Catholic, so obviously some personal bias would enter the story. BUT he didn't intentionally do it at all(!!!), so I'm afraid you can't use this story to validate your religion. I've read all of the professor's letters and every book I could get my hands on by either him or his son, I think I know a thing or two. You can't pass bias off as intent, for god's sake.
