Apparently, Christine Amanpour is going to do a show about world religions and the impact they have on the world.
"'At the very violent extreme – global security is at stake. In the United States, understanding the impact of religion upon electoral politics is very timely. The political parties and presidential candidates are actively courting faith leaders and their constituencies for their votes,' explained Amanpour."
Of course, none of these politicians have come to the First Church of the DC Comictician and Latter Day Citizens of the United Federation of Planets for spiritual guidance. But we all know why that is; they're on Lex Luthor's payroll. It's hard to stop the Legion of Doom when you're one of their agents.
"Amanpour concludes by drawing commonality between Christian, Jewish, and Muslim fundamentalists:
"'The ‘warrior’ within each religion view modern society as too permissive, oversexualized and corrupt. Their solution is to restore morality and values to our culture by returning religion to the center of public life,' she said, according to U.S News & World Report. 'While there is no equivalence being drawn between them, they do have in common the determined belief that only they have a direct line to God and the unique ability to interpret His truth.'"
There they go again, talking about that God who doesn't even own his own Batplane and has a son who can't walk tightropes or run faster than the speed of light. But I do agree with these fundamentalists' solution: "restore morality and values to our culture". Indeed. That would be a good start.
We need to get back to morals laid out for us in the Federation charter. We need to embrace the values that the Justice League fight to preserve everyday. If we don't, The Legion of Doom will most certainly bring about destruction and chaos and pave the way for the Borg who are on their way from the Delta Quadrant as we speak. They hate us because we elect our representatives and they won't stop until they have destroyed our way of life.
Only Superman can save us from Solomon Grundy. There are no other answers. The sooner our knee-jerk, Marvel media understands that, the better off we'll all be.
