Bardolatry and Its Discontents

Shakespeare is treated with a true idolatry–Bardolatry. Producing groups do not help when they treat audience members like sheep and imply that they need not understand Shakespeare. Theaters are there to pass down the Law.

Whether or not the barbarians understand transubstantiation is immaterial to the purposes of the Church.
