I've noticed that alot of the gay people seem to think that Miss Joan was gay. Which couldn't be farther from the truth! Honestly.....
It bothers me soooooooo much that the gays feel the need to slander such remarkable women! (And she's not the first they've slandered either.) They really need to leave an innocent women like her out of their agendas's.
I just wanted to write two lines to thank Pope John Paul II for everything he has done for all of us. His demise is a great loss not only for Christianity, but also for the whole world.
I admit it: I'm tv show addicted. And one of my favourites is certainly Witchblade, an action/drama/fantasy/urban thriller show. The story is about detective Sara Pezzini, a New York City cop, the 21st Century bearer of an intelligent, symbiotic weapon that existed for thousands of years: the Witchblade (or Lame de Sorciere, Digitabulum Magae...). Only women of unmatched strenght of mind, body and will have ever successfully worn it. Its legacy has created a warrior bloodline back through time and forward into the future.
Joan appears in several episodes (in flashbacks and reveries), being one of these women. In the show's fascinating mythology, her visions and voices come from the blade (which is nonetheless connected to the Christian God: "It [the Witchblade] is a branch ripped from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil."). This is an interesting dialogue about Joan of Arc taken from the show, episode 2x02 Destiny.
IAN: She heard voices too. She had visions. She claimed they were the source of her power. History credits them with her demise.
SARA: She looks kind of sad.
IAN: A cruel destiny to be sure. To save a nation, to be a hero and a saint, to die at the hand of treacherous clergymen at the age of 19. But a destiny that mattered. A reponsability... a duty... a cause. I doubt anyone ever understood her. How could they? Ultimately, she was abandoned.
There are many other references to the French heroine in many episodes. Unfortunately, Witchblade was canceled after only two seasons :-(
I just wanted to wish all women in the world an happy Woman's Day!
I decided to create this community for every Joan of Arc's admirer/devotee out there. Here you can discuss about this great historical figure that has inspired the world for almost 600 years.
I came to know about Joan (thanks to the Besson's movie The Messenger: the True Story of Joan of Arc) a few years ago and I was instantly stunned by her courage and blind faith. Since then, I've been reading books, watching movies and researching articles and information. I really can't describe how much she's had an influence on my life.
Well, I hope we will get some members very soon! ;-)
P.S. at the moment the layout of the community is quite shabby. Could anyone help me out to make it better?
