Fascinating Passion

Science-fiction with a religious message is always scoffed at, and it is rarer still because most scientific types tend or prefer to be irreligious in their choices. But there are some exceptions, in the stories and their followers.

There is nothing heavy handed in this story except in the minds of those who were offended by the religious message. What is wrong with a story whose protagonists are religious people? It is only offensive when one supposes that religious people do not exist. This is the same supposition which excludes African-Americans, Hispanics, Asians or gays from stories for their own convenience of thought or through some exclusionary convention which they must perpetuate in their minds.

Having said that, I thought this story evolved naturally from the conflict between the scientist husband and the religious wife. The acting was very well done by all.

This is very beautiful story that many will find inspiring and moving. As for those who will always be offended by religious subjects, let them be offended. One cannot erase religion from the human condition and it will always be an ingredient, if not obvious then as an undercurrent in the lives of all human beings who wonder about life, the world and the universe of existence.
