The Holy Man

 

 

I’m here to clear up some of the shit that The Abbot has been coming out with recently. In a hide-away valley in a vast mountain range which slices its way through the borders of several large countries, huddled between hoary peaks covered in snow at their very tips, a small community exists to run the global administration of this man’s organisation. My helicopter arrived some hours before, descending through the peaceful air of this ravine to deposit me alongside the rest of the hacks that have clustered here to fawn upon the peaceful existence of this wizened old fruit.

The Abbot has come out in support of thermonuclear tests, preceding armament, of one of the local powers, and has done so in the exact same flag waving rhetoric of the very government officials that control the country's affairs. The 'developed' countries- by which he must assume those already armed with nuclear warheads, as opposed to those who aspire towards such capabilities- must not busy themselves with the local politics of the region. Such talk in support of such deadly force is usually met with scorn by the global community; indeed, had it come from any other source, then such would be true in this instance. But it came from The Abbot, whose order claims a raiment of peace, and the pseudo-practitioners of whose teachings preach a love and peace exclusive to The Abbot's religion, separate from and alien to the Abrahamic dogmas of the West; thus it must be OK. No?

The Holy Man: a Bitesize Horror Story

In a hide-away valley in a vast mountain range which slices its way through the borders of several large countries, huddled between hoary peaks covered in snow at their very tips, a small community exists to run the global administration of this man's organisation. My helicopter arrived some hours before, descending through the peaceful air of this ravine to deposit me alongside the rest of the hacks that have clustered here to fawn upon the peaceful existence of this wizened old fruit. But I have heard the rumours, of course I have. He is said to have... abilities, powers... he does things that most men have never seen, will never seen. Is it witchcraft, I have to wonder? Or will they turn out just to be stories? I have no doubt that I will soon find out.
