I'd like to ask ...we're you ever afraid if backlash from religious ppl? You know, since SaM is about angels and demons and stuff
I mean, I have had a bit. But SaM is a complete work of fiction. They are fictional versions of angels/people/demons in the bible. They are not the actual versions from the bible, so I don’t have an issue with fictional versions for practicing creative liberties.
I personally am religious so I can tell the difference between that. I don’t believe these are the actual spiritual entities in the bible so I’m not put off writing stuff like this either.
There will always be someone who doesn’t like what you’re doing. But I make sure to be as respectful as I can while at the same time advocating how fiction does not equate to reality. I’m sure if SaM ever got a bigger platform there will be more really religious people probably taking grief with it, but it is what it is. I can’t control the world and what offends someone. And I don’t want it to stop me from using a creative outlet either just because a small margin of people are upset based on their religious beliefs.
I’d hope someone wouldn’t push that on me either. Just the same courtesy
