Actually, I thought your post addressed the article in a sane manner. My objections was not directed at your post, but rather to the numbers of "fuckturds" responses seen here. It's one thing to say "wow, this guy has some nutty ideas." But it strikes me as over-the-top to go "this guy is a fucking shitidiot!!!", as some did.
But in retrospect, those people you mentioned have the same right to say what they did about the article's originator, as he did to say what he wants about Dragon Ball.
I think another absurd article I once read long ago (back when it first aired on Cartoon Network), was that Dragon Ball was un-American, simply because Son Gohan, a "self-proclaimed good guy" tried to "steal an animal from the circus", and that it was admissable because it was a "special case".
One of my favorite quotes concerning religion is such;
Mahatma Gandhi wrote:Thus if I could not accept Christianity either as a perfect, or the greatest religion, neither was I then convinced of Hinduism being such. Hindu defects were pressingly visible to me. If untouchability could be a part of Hinduism, it could but be a rotten part or an excrescence. I could not understand the raison d'etre of a multitude of sects and castes. What was the meaning of saying that the Vedas were the inspired Word of God? If they were inspired, why not also the Bible and the Koran? As Christian friends were endeavouring to convert me, so were Muslim friends. Abdullah Sheth had kept on inducing me to study Islam, and of course he had always something to say regarding its beauty.
Also, later in his life, when he was asked if he was a Hindu, he replied thusly:
Gandhi wrote:Yes I am. I am also a Christian, a Muslim, a Buddhist and a Jew.
As well, I believe the Koji Suzuki novel "Loop" has some very interesting points considering the existance of God.
Relating this back on the point of Dragon Ball, it has been the target of Christian zealots since it first appeared (as DBZ) in the U.S. Although the above article infuriates me, it's hardly surprising.
