That statement is so asinine it's funny. Sure you can say that God was working through him because he shared your faith. A pagan could say that her gods influenced Tolkien's writings indirectly because they exist and because Tolkien had vast amounts of pagan mythology in his works, and that argument is as sound as yours. You may not like it, but she is as credible as you are. Just because Tolkien wasn't pagan doesn't mean those gods didn't influence him, right? In fact, I'd say there is FAR more pagan symbolism than Christian. Why, by your logic this means the PAGAN gods must have MORE power and MORE influence than the CHRISTIAN god! Tolkien has shown me the Light and converted me to Paganism! Renounce thy beliefs, sinners!!

EVERY work of fiction can be connected to ANY faith one way or another, and it's sad that people must validate themselves in this way.
