    Some might find it herectical, but I think it’s a rather touching tribute.

    That was my point. He took a stand against communism. That is what Darth Vader represents, the Evil Empire. You totally got my point!!!!

    I think it’s delightful. What a marvelous tribute to a man of peace and compassion!

    Presuming that’s not sarcasm then thank you! I don’t have to be Catholic to acknowledge that this dude was one cool mofo.

    Yes, I was serious. I, also, am not Catholic, but I think John Paul II is a superb representative of Good in the battle vs. Evil.

    Not just a picture of good vs. evil, but of good being willing to take a real stand against evil.

    I love this! He certainly had the intellectual ferocity to be a Jedi warrior, if the whole Throne of St. Peter thing hadn’t come his way. It also brought to mind Obi-Wan’s statement, “If you strike me down, I will become more powerful…”

    Of course, I always harbored a secret crush on Obi-Wan Kenobi – Han Solo was dashing and all, but Harrison Ford had nothing on Alec Guiness.

    “You have a big hat, Vader… but mine is bigger.”

    That is the best thing about the Catholic church. You can figure out who is in charge wherever you go by looking and seeing who has the biggest hat.

    You know I almost made this blog entry a caption contest. That would have won right there.

    I don’t understand this picture. It seems to depict evil vs evil. What’s the point in that?
