I'm a non-theist, so, obviously, I don't view the Bible as an infallible source of Ultimate Truth. On the other hand, I also sometimes get annoyed with seeing Christians depicted as villains in movies, comics. etc.. For one thing, it's a cliche, a lazy substitute for character development. And it is unfair to Christians, who in my experience are often (not always) nice people even if I don't think they have a special pipeline to God.
Just out of curiosity, is anyone reading this thread a fan of the cult sci-fi TV series "Firefly"? If so, what did you think of the character "Shepherd Book"?
