Louimir and Eiuol are one and the same person, by the way. It seems this site has trouble remembering my username and password (Yes, I am implying something.). Anyway:
"Look yes i am a true tolkien fan (read the books,seen the films,watched documentaries on himself and LOTR)"[sic].
"a couple of people have been offended by what i said when all i meant was that to put any sort of label on such an amazing story just confines it to a "box" and excludes many people. When i first wrote it was in respose to a Christian magazine article which absolutly disgusted me. i am sorry if i offended you in anyway and that you missunderstood me"[sic].
Why do you say "exclude"? Did that magazine forbid all non-Christians from reading the trilogy? Or did it require all non-Christians to convert before, during or after reading the trilogy?
P.S. I find your claim disgusting too.
