My friend Michael Homan likes to make a short film every summer. He has struck again. He is, in fact, a bonda fide academic bible dude so this subject is natural fodder for his quirky pastime. I’m not even embarrassed to admit that I know everyone in the flick. I should be but I’m not.
Here’s Homan’s description of The Theologians:
The Theologians, Drs. Michael Homan (Alpha) and Mark Gstohl (Omega), drive around New Orleans in a white Catalina verifying miracles. In this premiere episode (entitled Gumbo Madonna), the Cherub sells out some Babylonian Tiamat-worshipping Satanists for a trinity of indulgences. The Theologians then discover that something extraordinary has happened to Chef Who Dat’s gumbo. Is it an apparition of the Virgin Mary herself, or perhaps it’s just Rita Benson-LeBlanc on a bad day? The brave but pragmatic Theologians must decipher God’s latest culinary message for nothing less than the spiritual well-being of all of humanity.
