Case in point- Gandalf's "Obi Wan" speech about doing the right thing with the life you've been given. I know people hear this again and again, and if there is any truth in it, is that nearly nobody actually follows that advice. There's always those "if only I had done this" or "if I had done that" or "if I could go back in time" and really, if you listen to what's being said there, you're a product now of what you've seen then, so buck up and get on with it. I think I despise those that worship this crap as a religion more because that they never see the truth inside their own faith. Too many morons willing to bawl about how they've not the character of Frodo or Gandalf or Arwen- wake up! if you actually put any true faith in that crap, you'd find those words of advice hollow- telling you to do the right thing tells you less than nothing if you aren't already doing the right thing.
It's the time of year, I guess, to step on other people's religions. These made up ones are just easier, I guess.
