    The TARDIS is a church? Wha?Books have been written about the religious implications of Peanuts, Superman, The Simpsons… probably damn near every enduring cultural phenomenon. Allegory is in the mind of the beholder.As Bob Dylan said: "Don't follow leaders, watch the parking meters." These are the words I live by.
