Vitesse has just left Hobbiton.

There is no way that there are any gay people in the Lord of the Rings. Tolkien was a Christian and a strong one which would mean he would have thought homosexuality to be wrong and sinful.

Wrong and Sinful you may label things you don't like, but I consider myself to be a pretty upstanding and moral person, and never one to accuse people of being evil and sinful just because of who they are.

If that's the only thing you have to offer, then don't offer it because it doesn't contribute to serious discussion.

I don't know why people are so self-righteous that they feel they can stifle the opinions of people they don't like or have been taught to dislike.

In my post above, I tried to evaluate the topic as objectively as possible - and I'm at a loss to understand why others lack that objectivity.
