“What is happening here, it seems to me, is that the dilemmas of a withering and shrinking (if not dying) institution, the established Church of England, are being awkwardly welded onto the insecurities and threats experienced by other minority communities in order to produce a case for the preservation of one in conjunction with the granting of new influence to the other.”

    Ah, the evolution of religious ignorance. Like some amoeboid alien predator, the dying religion finds an equally abhorrent system of ideas, encases it in slime and makes it’s mutated and inbred DNA it’s own. All the while increasing it’s power and perpetuating it’s systematic inoculation of ignorance into human society. T’was ever thus.

    I love that movie. Especially the part where the alien gets blown to smitherines (sp?!?).
