I don't believe in magical beings. I *do* believe some humans
intentionally set out to hurt other humans. Branden's beliefs and
sneering disdain for some of his fellow humans is quite clear. (Note:
your response was measured and even).
Please explain to me the relevance of these names without the specific
intent of discomforting people. The *intent* is clear. If you can
explain for, historical, literary, philosophical reasons, I will
enthusiastically support those names. If it's just because "let's piss
off the Christians", then I say, pick something else.
Actually I think you *should* pick those names. I'd love to see the
resulting carnage :-)
