I once remember, long ago, finding a "church" that believes Tolkien wasn't writing fiction, but history, as archangel Gabriel dictated it to him. This "church" believes that everything Tolkien wrote chronologically happened before the Great Flood. They consider The Silmarillion a holy book and The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings historical fiction, but reliable historical fiction.
This was a long time ago, some 5-6 years ago, and I can't find this "church" anywhere. My question is, does something like this exist anywhere else?
