• In Response to: The Mists of Avalon is pornography! (Ken Moody)

I bet you would've been very happy living in the Christian-dominated Middle Ages wherein anything non-Christian was scandalous. This situation is just one of the many examples that people speak ill of something that they have no clear understanding of.

Firstly, the Romans (Christianized Romans) invade Britain and lord over the people like they own the land. They round up the 'barbarians' and force a foreign religion down their throats and threatened those who did not submit. How would you like it if you're minding your own business and then someone barges into your house and forces a foreign religion down your throat and threatened you?

As for 'anti-Christian', you obviously didn't see the big picture. In the story, Viviane was disturbed by the ways Christianity spread itself (killing pagans, burning sacred groves, lying, educated ignoramouses aka the priests back then) and its disrespect for the Old Religion. Arthur's reign is about the Old Religion and Christianity coexisting and not being at each other's throats. Plus, Avalon is not unholy. Joseph of Arimathea went to Avalon and struck his staff on the ground before he went to sleep. When he woke up a thorny bush began growing he placed his staff. Would the Holy Thorn grow on an unholy land?

I am a Christian and I don't think there's anything offensive about The Mists of Avalon. The problem lies in narrowminded ignoramouses.

"To be ignorant of many things is expected
To know your are ignorant of many things is the beginning of wisdom.
To know a category of things of which you are ignorant is the beginning of learning.
To know the details of that category of things of which you were ignorant is to no longer be ignorant."
—Phenella in The Unwritten Comedy.

May the Lord our God enlighten you, and the Mother guide your path.
