Spirituality in the Anime Blogosphere: Choosing Anime Over Jesus

2DT wrote a wonderful post about the common separate between anime fans and religious folk on his blog.  Referencing my anibloggers and religion survey from last year, he discusses the idea that it seems most anime fans simply aren’t interested (or are even against) organized religion.  2DT postulates that a reason for this is that there are “so many more exciting fictions” available than those presented in the Bible.

Please take a look through the comments below the survey.  It was exciting for me to read commentary by some of my favorite bloggers and commentators, Christian and otherwise.

  1. You know, I do think that’s it for some people, but I know that wasn’t the case for me. It’s interesting to note the differences that he takes on the religion standpoint and the one that I have. Or had, as the case seems to be 🙂

      1. Let me clarify- I remember clearly why I wasn’t into religion just a few years ago, but was into anime. His explanation most definitely wasn’t mine- nor was it that of a few others I knew that weren’t into religion.
