…when I stumbled across this, courtesy of Towleroad. (My name is Richard, and I am a multi-tasker.)
Is it just me, or is the faux-chivalrous crap that this preacher spews about “I take authority over the principalities of powers of Hell” taken right from the pages of every low-rent Tolkien knock-off? (Though I wouldn’t accuse even Piers Anthony of using such terrible grammar.)
My theory — and it’s only in the early stages — is that wingnuts like this really just need a way to vent their inner “Round Table” monologue. And if they had a place to do that — say, a renaissance faire, or World of Warcrap, or maybe some live-action thing like that Mazes and Monsters movie Tom Hanks did 30 years ago — they’d be a lot happier. Hell, they already love paintball; just substitute swords for airguns and let ’em hack it out.
