I could easily tell by reading your comment that you had never read the Lord of the Rings trilogy before. I doubt you even knew it existed.
The truth of the matter is that J.R.R Tolkien was a Christian, but also that he based his characters on Biblical characters. Aragorn reperesents Jesus because he is the King who will return in the end. Sauron represents Satan who will be destroyed one day. Since Tolkien was a Roman Catholic the has to be a Mother Mary. Galadriel is supposed to portray Mary. Gandalf, I believe, is supposed to be a prophet. And I believe Frodo is a Christian who struggles in his perilous quest. There are many more examples, but I can't remember them all.
If you can't see past the surface of this story, my advice is that you should be careful what and how you judge things that you know little about.
I don't mean to offend you in any way.
