Hi Tomm, from Jeff Overstreet at Looking Closer & Image Journal. One of the commenters, Mr. Steven Greydanus, articulated further what I was not able to back at Mr. A. O. Scott's NYT review of The Secret of Kells, in which I connected Viking invasions to contemporary events. For the record: although I cited the Israeli Flotilla Raid and the Iraq Invasion, in truth my commentary wasn't about any specific race at all. History is blotted with these atrocities and they are not endemic to any particular race.http://imagejournal.org/page/blog/revealing-the-secret-of-kells-part-1http://imagejournal.org/page/blog/revealing-the-secret-of-kells-part-2~o~ ~o~ ~o~Here is one concern from a Fr. Paul King:http://lookingcloser.org/2010/06/the-secret-of-kells-2009/
Btw, I left a response to Fr. Paul King at LookingCloser.
