Star Wars: Ultimate Religious Story
Mood:  spacey
I was watching Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (The first Star Wars, Darth Vader et al) this weekend and it finally really hit me. The whole story is about the power of religion and faith! Think about it, just replace "the Force" with "the Lord" and the whole story is a Christian epic. I guess for best effect you replace "the dark side of the force" with "Satan", but ou get the idea. Even at the end, when they are in the attack on the Death Star, Luke Skywalker turns off his sophistcated computer targeting system, and puts his faith in the Force (Lord), and is victorious! Awesome!

Skywalker should have been court-marshalled for turning off his targeting system. You're faith has to be in the rebel alliance engineers who built the x-wing fighters and software designers who made the tracking system. Think of it this way, would you want one of our Patriot missile defense personnel turning off the radar and saying God's will shall allow the Patriot missiles to strike the heathen Scuds? I think not.

Captain America,
If anyone should face tribunal for the attack on the Death Star, it should be the rebel squadron leader. Why the heck make the fighters go into the tunnel before they were anywhere near the exhaust port? They were just sitting ducks in there waiting for the Tie Fighters to pick them off. It was horrible space military strategy, and I would hae sought the resignation of the planner of that mission.

I agree. The better strategy would've been to send Leah in to lap-dance Darth Vader, and Robbie the Robot in to diddle the Emporer. Then, while distracted, they could've captured Captain Sulu and tortured him into spilling secrets regarding Project Genesis. Then, once the got past the Cardassian border, they could've visited Gandalf at the top of the mountain and eventually gotten Hal the Computer to shake down Flash Gordon.

YOU FREAKIN' DORKS!!!

Dear sirs,
You have indeed made very valid points regarding both following the orders of a superior, and the place of faith in warfare. I however have a question regarding the Empire Strikes Back which perhaps one of you can help clarify for me. What is the practical purpose of an Imperial Walker? You know those gargantuan metal cow-like vehicles they used on the Ice Planet Hoth? What's the advantage to a giant walking vehicle? They weren't fast, they weren't maneuverable, they were just big, and they WALKED! Walking one of the most basic functions of a human. Children can typically walk before they stop soiling themselves, yet some Empire military higher up orders thousands of these from the Galactic equivalent of Haliburton. Who pays? The taxpayer, that's who. Therefore, I am glad to see the Empire was brought down. Long live the Rebel Alliance!

Respectfully,
Comic Book Guy

And gay sex is awesome. Stop picking on men who share their love on other men. I think I'll go partake in some hot man-on-man action right now!
