Christis on Infinite Church

Lately, and on more than one occasion, I have found myself in the middle of conversations in which otherwise-intelligent individuals discuss the fine points of Christian theology.

After watching the back and forth of the debates, I wondered why it sounded so familiar in tone. Finally, I realized... I'd had conversations of similar intensity over equally-weighty matters... in comic book stores.

Snark's First Law of Theology

The only difference between discussions of Christian doctrine and those of comic book continuity is that nobody has ever been burned at the stake over Infinite Crisis.

No matter how richly they deserved it.
