Quotes: Everyone Is Jesus in Purgatory
"Everyone in the world is Christ and they are all crucified."
Sherwood Anderson

"Christ figure is a recurring motif in many cultures; death and rebirth; symbolic turning of the seasons, all that crap. Wyle E. Coyote was a fucking Christ figure, man, and Acme Company was Rome, baby."
Daniel Suarez, Daemon

On works

"Now they're trying to come up with meanings for Beatles songs. I never understood what any of them were about, myself..."

"In hysterical Torchwood fashion, Jack finally steps into action by kneeling before the Abaddon like Jesus before the Devil and pours a white light into his ass and kills him."

"Yeah, anyone who didn't think there was gonna be some kind of Christ motif in this movie, raise your hands. Okay, everyone who raised their hands, go home. Have any of you ever seen a pretentious movie before?"

Chris: Lex totally prison shanks Superman with a Kryptonite shiv.
David: Oh, yeah. “Shanks.” In the side, natch. This is the most labored combination Caesar/Jesus metaphor of all time.
Chris: Aw jeez, I didn’t even think of that. Thanks for ruining one of the three things I liked about this movie, jerk.
Chris Sims and David Uzumeri on Superman Returns

"Saw Cannonball Run II in West Virginia. After the movie, everybody broke up into discussion groups. Trying to get through that Burt Reynolds subtext. I believe Heloise is supposed to be a Christ figure."
