Hannibal Lecter’s Church roof collapse fetish

November 8, 2008

One of the marvelous tidbits from the Thomas Harris Hannibal Lecter books is the fact that the good Doctor collects articles on Church collapses. Its a fetish of his. Lecter finds something delightfully ironic about the fact that Church roofs collapse inward on the faithful. I, too, find the phenomenon fascinating from a theological stand point.

In Haiti one of the latest Church collapses (a school, so its a double tragedy) can be found here.
