Not enough "actual research"

One of the webcomics I read just concluded a very long epic storyarc which revolved around a war in Hell and how this event affected the world and the characters (who in any good fantasy epic, have to save it from destruction).

At any rate, I was perusing the message boards of said webcomic just to see how everyone was reacting to the conclusion, when I came across this sentence from someone discussing his overall feelings about the arc’s main villians.

“The demons of *comic title here* were unimpressive to me, too much Judeo-Chrisitian influence and not enough actual research for inspiration…”

I didn’t know really how to react to this statement at first. At first I had to laugh at the overall absurdity of it. But then I just felt shocked and really really sad.

The fact that he was unimpressed leads one to believe that he has done “actual research” on demons. I really don’t want to know what he considers an “actual” source for that, if “Judeo-Christian influence” (which I’m assuming means Scripture and probably anything written or spoken by those who trust and believe in what it says) apparently is not counted among that.

    and it’s also rather ironic that it was too “Judeo-Christian”. lol. like Christianity has nothing to do with the demonic or spiritual warfare… or satan. you know. stuff that is never ever mentioned in the Bible.
