That’s the worst thing, the thing so terrible that the official position of the Catholic church is that this was impossible and therefore never actually happened: Toward the end, it wasn’t that nobody believed Joan of Arc. It was that Joan of Arc didn’t believe herself."

A silver lining was given by a commenter named Laura:
Did you know that she recanted after she was arrested again? Before they took her to her execution, she defied them one last time, and reaffirmed that she did have visions, and that she was who she said she was. They raped her and burned her and called her evil, but they couldn’t take that away from her.

For those who don’t know him by name, Rick Riordan is the author of the wildly overrated Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, as well as spinoff series about Egyptian and Roman deities, and an upcoming series about Norse deities.
Please note that in context (as you will be able to tell from the sources), this is not a case of “I didn’t know that was still a religion, I didn’t mean to be insulting.” He is well aware that polytheistic religions centering on the Norse, Egyptian, Greek, and Roman Gods still exist as legitimate practices, and just doesn’t consider them worthy of the same concern or care that his beliefs are, because non-Christian religions are secondary to Christianity (see: his grand rant about how even the Greek Gods would admit that the Christian god is better than them; I believe it’s under his FAQ somewhere).
Sources in order are:"More Greek God weirdness." x
"Weird article on Norse mythology." x
"Greek gods no longer illegal in Greece" x (he does not do a good job of explaining the backstory here that the post title refers to and I would be happy to explain the situation in Greece to anyone upon request)
"Mythology and censorship" x

Last year alone, Doc McStuffins items amassed $500 million in sales and, this year, the franchise could become the all-time best-selling doll based on an African-American character, according to industry experts who spoke with the New York Times.
Why wouldn’t we expect a billion dollar company to jump on the latest cash cow and stake their claim to the profit?
(BUT YAY DOLL REPRESENTATION♥)
Cartoon Network yanked Green Lantern and Young justice off the air with no advance warning or explanation. They were not put online.
It was several months before they brought the shows back to the air, and then they decided not to renew them. The fans had a letter campaign and petitions to change their minds and even offered to crowd fund the shows. Despite the fact that the show’s finales made it into the top three ratings slots, they were still cancelled. (I think Young Justice even beat Adventure Time.)
Do not put Cartoon Network on a pedestal because of this. They cancelled two superhero shows, one of which had an extremely diverse cast, for no apparent reason.
don’t forget they did the same to Beware the Batman, Sym-Bionic Titan, and Generator Rex. CN has done way fucking worse than Nickelodeon.
"For no apparent reason"
Ha haha hahahaha.
