Yesterday in seminary we were talking about good and evil, and I gave the class a quick “pop quiz” (I do that a lot) where they had 2-3 seconds to see a photo of a fictional character and write down whether they were a good guy or a bad guy.
Some were easy:
Some were a little more complicated (he was good, then bad, and then good again?)
I was surprised how many of the kids didn’t know a classic bad guy like Prince Humperdinck:
But the best was when I flashed up Khan and they had no idea who he was. In fact, several of them thought he was a somewhat unattractive older woman.
Really? Khan? What’s this world coming to when the rising generation doesn’t know the classics?
