True. Kinda says a lot about religion and the effect it has on people when the person is the greatest need is the one ignored, whilst those who have fallen for worse crimes have salvation considered a possibility.
The imagination knows nothing but lies. For a story to be based just in imagination, and yet be felt or experienced to the same degree a true story would be doesn't seem right. The truth of anyone's experience is why it's given in the first place, seems like a waste to not see that. Interpretation is the key. Imagination is not thought provoking. The different interpretations of a story based in reality has more to offer than maybe even the story itself.
