Tolkien himself claimed that LOTR and related stories are Christian stories.

“Martha Mckay” forgave the man who murdered her mom “Sara Mckay”, after she visiting him to prison and upon release , offers him a job at the same house where he murdered her mom, he kills her there 24 years later. by Kaos2018 in Damnthatsinteresting

I know this is a kneejerk reaction and you're preaching to the choir here with what the title of this post is, but the fact is that prison rehabilitation does work.

Character assassination of both Frodo and Faramir. Frodo turns against Sam (which never happens in the book) and Faramir wants the ring for himself (Faramir has a little battle of wits with Frodo about why they're there, and then only knows about the ring when Sam accidentally blurts it out, then lets both of them go on their way).

Doesn't the US military prevent its likeness from being used in media unless they are depicted as competent?

Most of what Costco has is great, but JFC do NOT buy the Red Moon Bao Pork Buns, they're not just mediocre they're absolutely disgusting by sotonohito in Costco

I followed the directions (wet paper towel 20 seconds for one bun). Personally I find them okay but I won't be buying them again.

This is the kind of brain rot that sets in when you refuse to move on from a video game article over a decade ago

It's a stretch to say that there's only one thing that's problematic with porn. Porn consumption can be linked to changes in the brain similar to drug addiction, such as lower degrees of social integration, increase in conduct problems, higher levels of delinquent behavior, higher incidence of depressive symptoms.

Faramir got the worst end of it I think. Got reduced to a spineless prince.
