Irreverend D-Rock's Sunday Service -- Unraveling and Reweaving Christian Theology in Kevin Smith's "Dogma"



There are so many interesting theological concepts and questions being explored in this movie that it’s almost hard to know where to start. So perhaps it’s best to start where the movie starts: Bartleby and Loki. Bartleby and Loki are two fallen angels who have been banished from Heaven (to Wisconsin) for insubordination after Bartleby convinced a drunken Loki to throw down his sword and resign his post as Angel of Death. The thing I find most interesting about this is that, when Loki tells Bartleby he thinks he should resume his post, Bartleby reveals a very salient piece of information: there hasn’t been an Angel of Death since Loki resigned. So, while Loki was banished from Heaven for resigning the post, and Bartleby is banished for merely convincing Loki to resign--God ultimately decides that they were right; there should be no Angel of Death. It brings up a lot of questions about the idea of a God that would banish someone for refusing a command, subsequently conclude that they were wrong to issue said command--and, therefore, Loki (and, by extension, Bartleby) was right to disobey said command, and yet continue to punish this disobedience.

Bartleby and Loki certainly aren’t the only interesting characters in this movie.

Happy 24th Birthday to Tool's "Undertow" Album





It's really kind of amazing to think that this album was released in 1993--and many of the songs on the album were written several years before that. This album is so incredibly ahead of its time, it's unreal. So much so that, until recently, even I--one of the biggest Tool fans on the planet--could never really get that into it. I especially recommend tracks 5-8--Crawl Away, Swamp Song, Undertow, and 4°--but the whole album is just brilliant.
