Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the Church

Mark LeBelle over at the Arrival is doing an interesting multi part series relating the success of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the terms that have been predicated to the animated heros (Teenage, Mutant, Ninja, Turtle) to the terms that have been predicated to the Catholic Church: One, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic. The success of each can be found in those terms that describe the nature of each.

From Essay:
Because in the same way that someone can talk about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles without fully understanding what those four words imply, one can state their belief in the One, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic Church week after week and not really comprehend the weight of this title. While these adjectives might seem redundant or superfluous, one must understand that the Church is seldom wordy for the sake of being wordy. Like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, every word counts in the Catholic Church.
The only thing I want to know is if the TMNT were catholic.

Hey, I thought this was pretty cool. I like your joke on the topic. I added one of my own to the topic, and I checked out LeBelle's essay. Thanks for bringing this to everyone's attention!
