  Exactly. People who GENERALIZE that have Power scare me, especially if it
is in the name of religion. There's usually an exception to a rule. They just
look at the surface of anime and do not get all the facts and a lot of times
do not get the actual facts of the topic they are talking about. Also, anime
is reflection of Japanese culture and their culture, religion, beliefs, etc.,
are naturally going to be reflected in their art forms. People of one
religion need to tolerate and respect the other's religion. As long as its
not Devil worshipping, that is :)
