If killing and eating humans is okay because it is what God made the werewolf for, does it not come into conflict with morality as taught in the Bible?
Remember Stephen King’s Cycle of the Werewolf? You know (spoiler alert), where the priest, who turns out to be the werewolf, has come to peace with his werewolfery? He knows he does evil, but rightly validates it with Biblical backing: “…evil also serves the will of God, or so the Book of Job teaches us…” Well, I kind of feel the same.
I’d like to take this thought a step further. My behavior, when in werewolf form, absolutely conforms with Christian morals as informed by the Bible. You heard me right: my eating of people is morally right in accordance with the teachings of the Bible.
We true Christians - us Catholics (and werewolf Catholics) that is - base our morals off of Biblical scripture. And let’s face it; God does some pretty nasty things in the Bible – far worse than any one mere Catholic lycanthrope can do. Accept God’s behavior. I do. I not only accept it, I emulate it. I am a good Catholic. I read and study the Bible, I go to Mass every week, I take the Eucharist, I live a chaste life (mostly), and I live my life according to the teachings of the Bible. As such, in modeling my human and werewolf “selves” after the Bible and its lessons, you will be able understand that my so-called “carnivorous lunar activity” is morally right. Remember, I am acting as God has created me to be - a killing machine. And I’m quite good at it if I don’t say so myself.
I promise, I’m getting to the point, but let me say what any modern day Catholic and, indeed anyone in the bulk of greater Christianity must understand in accepting the Christian faith: God is violent.
Now let me tie that in with my werewolf self.
