“For if the anger of even one hero or unimportant demon is hard to bear for whole countries and cities, who could have endured the wrath of so mighty a God, whether it were directed against demons or angels or mankind? It is worth while to compare his behavior with the mildness of Lycurgus and the forbearance of Solon, or the kindness and benevolence of the Romans towards transgressors. But observe also from what follows how far superior are our teachings to theirs. The philosophers bid us imitate the gods so far as we can, and they teach us that this imitation consists in the contemplation of realities. And that this sort of study is remote from passion and is indeed based on freedom from passion, is, I suppose, evident, even without my saying it. In proportion then as we, having been assigned to the contemplation of realities, attain to freedom from passion, in so far do we become like God. But what sort of imitation of God is praised among the Hebrews? Anger and wrath and fierce jealousy. For God says: “Phinehas hath turned away my wrath from the children of Israel, in that he was jealous with my jealousy among them.” For God, on finding one who shared his resentment and his grief, thereupon, as it appears, laid aside his resentment. These words and others like them about God Moses is frequently made to utter in the Scripture.”
– Julian the Blessed, Against the Galileans
There are many characteristic differences between the Judaic and Hellenic ethos. The Semitic mind cannot understand the eschaton as anything else but the destruction of the world/ end of history as utopia – either the New Jerusalem or the Worker’s Paradise or Dar-al-Islam.
It also can’t understand that anything outside of it could exist or be true or have rights worth respecting.
No Hellene would imagine trying to impose his understanding of divine things on Hindus, for example. Quite the reverse. Many major figures in antiquity, including Apollonius, Plotinus and many Stoics, actively sought out Chaldeans and Indians (whom they called gymnosophists) to learn from, to help perfect their own religion. They neither sought to convert others or to themselves convert, because they understood religion as a common pursuit of mankind and every local tradition as being like a language.
Semitism reverses this. It sets out to destroy all other systems. Burn their groves, smash their altars, “all the gods of the gentiles are devils” etc.
Islam and Communism are perfect examples of Semitic spirituality. Both seek an end to history – rather than seek union with god – and to destroy all competing systems, whether religious or philosophical – in pursuit of a posited “end of history” – an immanentized eschaton.
In addition to the above, the Semitic mind and its products are unusually obsessed with hatred and vengeance. Another hallmark of Semitic spirituality is an OCD-like obsession with rules that have no moral meaning.
For the time being, Semitic counter-religion, which has no share in the Truth, which viciously punishes dissenters or even legitimate philosophers, and which is, on its face, contradictory, confused, and morally evil – is superior in only one sense: the Darwinian.
Because all Semitic religion has the injunction: destroy all that is not the Self (the ‘Self’ being the Semitic system in question), it has a Darwinian advantage against real religion. Smash their altars, burn down their groves, all the gods of gentiles are devils, etc.
Hinduism is the only religion that has shown a real capacity for resistance, although at terrible cost. It survived 500 years of Islamic occupation and also avoided Communism. Now it is mounting a vigorous counter-missionary tradition to Christianity.
Buddhism slips under the radar by denying God and the gods (which it understands perfectly and is sympathetic to).
Neoplatonism is still trying to escape from the dungeon that Christianity has placed it in. It occasionally erupts on the European landscape and leaves a distinctive mark: renaissances of art, music, and philosophy. The English poet Kathleen Raine compared it to an underground stream that from time to time breaks the surface and adorns the earth with flowers.
But for every Renaissance, there is a Judaic reaction. In the case of the European Renaissance, that was Protestantism.
Real religion, which thought it was free to teach souls how to return themselves to God, never expected a challenger that was so vicious. This is because gentiles can never really understand (or believe) the power and scope of Jewish/ Semitic hatred. European people laugh at the content of the Book of Revelation or the Old Testament because they cannot believe that such things were written in earnest.
Sadly, people like Augustine, Savonarola etc. show clearly that the European soul can be bent, twisted and deformed by nothing else except taking Semitic texts seriously. The fatal mistake Europeans make is their inability or unwillingness to recognize how foreign such products are to their own nature. Although, if you talk to Reform Presbyterians or Catholic Triumphalists, you will see how powerfully deformed a European soul can become. The only literary predecessors to the pseudomorphosis we see in devout Bible-believing Christians (who don’t discount or filter what they read and see there) are Renfield in Dracula, the victims of the Borg in Star Trek, readers of the Necronomicon in Lovecraft, and the Orcs in Tolkien, who were once Elves but who were tortured by Sauron into their current, low state.
Significantly, these literary predecessors seem to occur only in horror, fantasy, and science fiction. Desacralized modern literature has pushed spiritual concerns (which is to say, Reality) into quasi-allegoricized and marginal genres of fiction.
European religion understands that there is a transcendent and an immanent aspect to god, both of which are denied by Semitic counter-religion.
Also, the “assimilation to god as far as is possible“, as Plato puts it, is the goal of European (and Indian) religion and, indeed Buddhism, even though they wouldn’t appreciate the god-talk. Orthodox Christianity (wisely) follows the Hellenic pagan tradition and not Moses or Jesus, by talk of ‘theosis‘ in place of atonement. To do so, they must deny what Paul states about the function of Jesus death, and must deny what both Jesus and Paul say about limited atonement. It is always this way: to the extent that a Christian is a good or wise person is the same extent that they ignore or deny Moses-Jesus-Paul and follow their native wisdom.
All this in contrast to “obey the rules” model as appears in Judaism-Protestantism-Islam.
Christianity has to dip into Neoplatonic wisdom, just to make it acceptable to worship Jesus. They do this by allowing Jesus is “begotten not made”.
What they also do by this is silence the Neoplatonic understanding that *everything* is begotten, thus desacralizing the world.
Judaism, cruddy and materialistic as it is, understands nothing of this. They don’t even understand that the soul survives death. They never had a sacral understanding of the world at all.
The Platonic academy was closed, the practice or teaching of Hellenic literature, or observing songs, dances, festivals of Traditional civilization banned and their memory hunted down over hundreds of years. Temples, statues, libraries burned and razed to the ground. Mobs in black robes destroying everything.
Remember what the Soviet Union did to Christians? Do you see how much progress they made in 70 years? Imagine that they had taken Europe and England and had 300 years in which to stamp out every trace. That is what Christianity was based on.
Many tales of Christian martyrs are actually tales of Hellene priests and laymen that Christians tortured and murdered.
Christianity was imposed on Egypt and the Roman Empire in the same way that Islam is being imposed on Christians (and Druze and Yezidis) in Egypt, Syria and Iraq right now.
You might as well ask where all the Christians in North Africa and the Levant went. How did North African Christians become Islamicized? Why would they want to be?
Answer: the want for them to be Islamic was not coming from them, but from the persons wielding the instruments of torture and of murder. And Islam allows for the existence of Christianity! Christianity does not allow for the existence of other religions – burn their groves, destroy their altars!
When Spengler said that Bolshevism was the granddaughter of Christianity, he wasn’t just whistling Dixie. Violent, revolutionary overthrow of everything decent, Traditional and European, based on the rousing of hatred and the promise of “judging the saints” and watching their enemies burn for all eternity. It’s just a hatred trip.
The wonder of eternal hellfire is twofold: no-one dares leave your chain-letter organization for fear of it, and you are lured by the anticipated joy of watching anyone who disagrees with you, or that you dislike, burn for all eternity. And you get to judge the saints! Aquinas and other Church fathers are very plain on this point: part of the pleasure of heaven is watching the damned in the Inferno.
“What a spectacle. . .when the world. . .and its many products, shall be consumed in one great flame! How vast a spectacle then bursts upon the eye! What there excites my admiration? What my derision? Which sight gives me joy? As I see. . .illustrious monarchs. . . groaning in the lowest darkness, Philosophers. . .as fire consumes them! Poets trembling before the judgment-seat of. . .Christ! I shall hear the tragedians, louder-voiced in their own calamity; view play-actors. . .in the dissolving flame; behold wrestlers, not in their gymnasia, but tossing in the fiery billows. . .What inquisitor or priest in his munificence will bestow on you the favor of seeing and exulting in such things as these? Yet even now we in a measure have them by faith in the picturings of imagination.” – Tertullian
“They who shall enter into [the] joy [of the Lord] shall know what is going on outside in the outer darkness. . .The saints’. . . knowledge, which shall be great, shall keep them acquainted. . .with the eternal sufferings of the lost.” – Saint Augustine
“In order that the happiness of the saints may be more delightful to them and that they may render more copious thanks to God for it, they are allowed to see perfectly the sufferings of the damned. . .So that they may be urged the more to praise God. . .The saints in heaven know distinctly all that happens. . .to the damned.” – Thomas Aquinas
“God shall not pity them but laugh at their calamity. The righteous company in heaven shall rejoice in the execution of God’s judgment, and shall sing while the smoke riseth up for ever.” – Thomas Boston
“The door of mercy will be shut and all bowels of compassion denied, by God, who will laugh at their destruction; by angels and saints, who will rejoice when they see the vengeance’ by their fellow-suffer the devil and the damned rejoicing over their misery.” Catechetical Sermons, Bishop Newcomb
“This display of the divine character will be most entertaining to all who love God, will give them the highest and most ineffable pleasure. Should the fire of this eternal punishment cease, it would in a great measure obscure the light of heaven, and put an end to a great part of the happiness and glory of the blessed.” – Samuel Hopkins
“…the Blessed will see their friends and relations among the damned as often as they like but without the least of compassion.” – Gerhard
Andrew Welwood speaks of the saints as being “overjoyed in beholding the vengeance of God ,” and their beholding of the smoke of the torment of the wicked as “a passing delectation.”
“What bliss will fill the ransomed souls, When they in glory dwell, To see the sinner as he rolls, In quenchless flames of hell.” – Isaac Watts
“The sight of hell torments will exalt the happiness of the saints forever. . .Can the believing father in Heaven be happy with his unbelieving children in Hell. . . I tell you, yea! Such will be his sense of justice that it will increase rather than diminish his bliss.” – Jonathan Edwards
“Therefore the elect shall go forth…to see the torments of the impious, seeing which they will not be grieved, but will be satiated with joy at the sight of the unutterable calamity of the impious .” – Peter Lombard
Martin Luther, when questioned whether the Blessed will not be saddened by seeing their nearest and dearest tortured answers, “Not in the least.”
A race’s innate character is most clearly shown in its favorite myths. No reader of the “Old Testament” can have failed to notice that while there are many tales of highly profitable theft, subversion, and looting by God’s Chosen Bandits, the real *Leitmotiv* of the whole collection is destruction, universal massacres and total destruction.
The same spiritual *Leitmotiv* of Judaism appears vividly in the apocalypse that was selected for inclusion in the “New Testament.” It would take too long to enumerate the ingenious ways in which Jesus afflicts, tortures, and kills all the inhabitants of the earth, and every reader of that mad phantasmagoria will remember that Jesus, in a paroxysm of nihilistic fury, destroys the mountains and the seas, destroys the whole earth, destroys the sun and the moon, destroys all the stars–destroys the whole universe, destroys everything, destroys and destroys.
No other mythology so reeks of an insane lust to torture, to kill, to destroy, to create only desolation and nothingness. And this spiritual force has characterized the activities of the Jews throughout history: they can only destroy.
There is the well-known passage (Exod. 23.27) in which Yahweh promises each and every Jew that he “will destroy all the people to whom thou shalt come.” And the story narrates, over and over again, with wearisome iteration, the triumphs of the blood-thirsty and nihilistic marauders. Yahweh’s special pet, Moses, boasts,
“And we took all the cities [of Bashan]…threescore cities…and we utterly destroyed them…utterly destroying the men, women, and children of every city.”
And although Moses didn’t get to enjoy much more carnage, the savage swarm moved on to Jericho, “And they utterly destroyed all that was in that city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox and sheep and ass, with the edge of the sword….And they burnt the city with fire, and all that was therein.” “And Joshua …utterly destroyed all the inhabitants of Ai…And Joshua burnt Ai, and made it a heap for ever, even a desolation unto this day.”
And so the inspiring tale goes on and on and on. “So Joshua smote all the country of the hills, and of the south, and of the vales, and of the springs, and all their kings: he left none remaining, but utterly destroyed all that breathed.” A righteous lust to kill all the men, all the women, all the children, all the animals, everything that breathed, and to destroy cities and make of them mounds of desolation in a desert, was stronger even than the greed of the godly brigands whose piety is celebrated in their exemplary tales. – Revilo Oliver
“I will send my fear before thee, and will destroy all the people to whom thou shalt come, and I will make all thine enemies turn their backs unto thee.” Exodus 23:27
Christianity’s only purpose – as said many, many times in the OT – is to destroy and subjugate non-Jewish races.
When a Christian says, oh, we’re the true Israelites, we’re the heirs to the promise, I ask: then why is world history, to any outside observer, in conformity to the deal in the Old Testament that you said is supplanted? Everywhere Christianity goes, plague, death, poverty . . . and Jewish rule.
If YHVH could betray the Jews like that, how much more likely is it that YHVH has betrayed you? I mean, He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow, right?
Is it more likely that YHVH cheated his people of the promise he made to them (subjugation of the whole earth and destruction of all non-Jewish ethnicities) , or is more likely that he injected a venom into the body of the Nations that would break them down so that the promise would be fulfilled?
As for the origins of Jewry, when a race writes down myths, it makes a record – not of the universe – but of their own souls.
The creation of Jewry was a perfect storm: first there was the Semitic type, which we know about from before there were Jews, who probably came into existence in the second half of the second millennium BC. Greeks tell stories about Arabs and Phonecians as unscrupulous, as liars, as devoted to gain and slaving and a host of other bad practices. This has something to do with neurological substrate – the same thing that makes the Yanomamo so vicious or Negroes the way they are – and partly to do with family structure. The standard Middle Eastern nomadic-clannish family structure encourages the development of values that are just bad.
The first is the Hyksos occupation of Egypt, which I think went on for three centuries. They were eventually expelled and ended up in the Levant. They worshipped Set, the god of storms and foreigners, who was also the murderer of his brother, Osiris.
Secondly was the traumatic Amarna period, also involving a god-against-the-gods, Akhenaten’s ‘Aten’ disk. This episode was so traumatic to the Egyptians that they destroyed all traces of Akhenaten’s reign and the rest of the world knew nothing of it until the 19th century. Akhenaten’s reign was characterized by the destruction of images, the suppression of all competing cults, etc.
The Amarna priesthood was expelled into the Levant as well.
I think the experiences of the Hyksos and the Amarna priesthood are the basis of Judaism. They took ruling positions in Canaan and then started the first Big Lie, or the Biggest Big Lie of all time.
Critical for the formation of Jewish character is their time in Babylon. This is the crucible where the Canaanites, the Amarna priests, and the Hyksos were both introduced to civilization-wide financial manipulation – and so I suspect where the true origin of the Joseph story comes from – and to the necessity to ‘keep the race pure’. The redaction of Torah is sometime in the 6th century BC in Babylon, probably by Ezra, scholars now believe.
So, as I say, a perfect storm: the Semitic temperament, which never really understood that other people had rights that needed respecting, combined with a facility for verbal manipulation, corralled and husbanded by Hyksos Set-worshippers and Amarna priests, both of whom have a burning hatred for Egypt and anything like Egypt.
The Bible makes a big deal about destroying Asherah poles. Jah was a perfectly harmless Levantine/ Mediterranean god – with a wife! – until this destructive nexus decided to use that name to travel under.
And to be fair, what emerged from the combination of the Set worshipping Hyksos and the Aten worshipping Amarna priests is a thousand times more savage and terrifying than Set or Aten or Kali or anything else that has ever interacted with the human realm.
I think the Jews worship Apep/ Apophis, who was so powerful that only Set and Ra together could destroy him.
I think the unrepresentable trauma of the Amarna period, that the Egyptians decided to forget, is something that they could not understand even with their incredible mythology and religious understanding. What happens when Apep wins?
We still don’t have an answer to that question.
For what it’s worth, the Egyptians have their own memory of the ‘Exodus’ story. It involves a priest named Osarseph leading a group of lepers out of Egypt.
If a man have issue from his flesh, he shall be unclean. There’s a lot of that in the Old Testament.
I think that the burning, unquenchable rage of the Jews, which they express as a desire for ‘justice,’ is the legacy of the twin expulsions of the Hyksos and the Amarna priests.
“How dare you fight back against us! We will avenge ourselves! We will besmirch you for all of time! etc. etc. etc.”
Being Jewish means never having to say you’re sorry, because other people don’t exist morally for you.
They call it chutzpah.
We call it psycho/ sociopathy.
I think that the term ‘human’ does more damage than good. Peoples are wildly different subspecies. Semites can’t live among Europeans. I don’t think they can live among anyone – hence the prophecy ‘a people that shall dwell alone’.
Their “prophets” attain a memorable eloquence when they are inspired by visions of world-wide death and desolation.
“The indignation of the Lord is upon all nations;…he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter. Their slain shall be cast out, and their stink shall come out of their carcasses, and the mountains shall be melted [!] with their blood. And all the host of heaven [i.e., the constellations] shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll.”
“Their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust made fat with fatness [of decaying flesh]….And the streams thereof shall be turned to pitch, and the dust thereof into brimstone, and the land thereof shall become burning pitch. It shall not be quenched night or day; the smoke thereof shall go up forever: from generation to generation it shall lie waste; none shall pass through it for ever and ever.”
“I will break in pieces the horse and his rider…I will break in pieces the chariot and its rider…I will break in pieces man and woman…I will break in pieces old and young…I will break in pieces the young man and the maid…I will break in pieces the shepherd and his flock…I will break in pieces the husbandsman and his yoke of oxen…I will break in pieces the captains and rulers…And the land shall tremble and sorrow: for every purpose of the Lord shall be performed…to make the land of Babylon a desolation without an inhabitant.”
“I [Yahweh] have cut off the nations: their towers are desolate; I have made their streets waste, that none passeth by; their cities are destroyed, so that there is no man, that there is no inhabitant…My determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be destroyed with the fire of my jealousy.”
“The human sacrifices of the Carthaginians, Mexicans, and many barbarous nations, scarcely exceed the Inquisition and persecutions of Rome and Madrid. For besides that the effusion of blood may not be so great in the former case as in the latter; besides this, I say, the human victims, being chosen by lot, or by some exterior signs, affect not in so considerable a degree the rest of the society. Whereas virtue, knowledge, love of liberty, are the qualities which call down the fatal vengeance of inquisitors; and when expelled, leave the society in the most shameful ignorance, corruption, and bondage.” – Hume
The problem with Christian myth is twofold; that it obliterates national, racial and civilizational history while desacralizing it. Therefore everyone knows Abraham and Jacob but only a rare type of person knows anything about the deep history of his own race and his own land. Goethe complains about this.
Secondly, it desacralizes everything that is not itself. It can’t be expanded or shrunk down to fit evolving needs. Myths about other things – making other things sacred – can’t be allowed. Other people’s myths are false. Christianity had a more powerful mythic vocabulary and flexibility when it started – the redemption of the cosmic whore mytheme that no amount of effort on the part of the Church can erase. There is no biblical precedent for regarding Mary Magdelene as a whore, but the exaggerated hatred of Simon Magus, who traveled around with a prostitute he had ‘redeemed’ – restored to her Father’s house – was obviously very powerful in early Christianity.
That Simon is remembered as an opponent who had to magically overcome indicates that a very similar sort of Hellenistic Mystery Cult was a serious competitor with Paul’s version at some point.
It’s interesting, because Plotinus is writing about two hundred years later and tells a tale about the soul being ‘an Aphrodite pan demos’ – a common appellation for prostitutes, an Aphrodite for “all the people”. For him, she has fallen from her heavenly home and has forgotten herself and become a prostitute in a foreign land. This is obviously the same mytheme as Sophia and Simon Magus.
Early Christianity also completely rewrote Satan from being a helpful quality testing angel to being the Adversary. Sometime thereafter, the tale of a “war in heaven”, which I think is also biblically unprecedented, was created and has never left the Christian mind.
But the period of mythological flexibility was arrested by the marriage of Christianity to State Power, and because of the long shadow of the Jewish imagination, for whom Election is the only possible morality.
What we now regard as Abrahamic literalism, intolerance, violence, etc. is just the Judaic sense of Election writ large – there can only be one Chosen People and there can only be One Myth.
And yes, I do think that’s part of the Semitic imagination biologically, which is what makes Islam so powerful. The Semite is a born fanatic, who cannot understand fully that other people exist or have rights that need to be observed. There is a Darwinian aspect to religion that the Greeks, Egyptians and Romans couldn’t have imagined existed.
They were destroyed by the same thing that destroys Whites today – they can’t imagine that what is happening to them could really exist, and so cannot believe it and so cannot fight it.
This is the Law of the Plague: without shielding or mental reservations or the imposition of Platonic or Hindu allegory, the Christian will become as much like YAHVEH as his health allows. There are no exceptions to this Law.
For every Marsilio Ficino who drenches himself in Platonic wisdom there is going to be a deformed. No exceptions. In fact, since the Reformation, Savonarolas outnumber Ficinos 1,000,000 to 1.
Gregory bitterly laments the fact that Julian was not murdered as a child, and maligns those who saved the life of the six year-old Julian when his father and brothers were being slaughtered, while praising the Christian Emperor Constantius, who ordered the slaughter (of members of his own family!) and whose only fault, in Gregory’s eyes, was that he didn’t go far enough!
In fact, Gregory, even while praising Constantius as “the most celebrated of all the sovereigns” still feels compelled to criticize him for “mak[ing] a mistake highly unworthy of his hereditary piety” in allowing the child who would become Julian the Apostate to live.
Gregory’s mentality is further illustrated by the fact that he criticizes Julian for … not killing Christians: “[H]e begrudged the honor of martyrdom, and for this reason he contrives now to use compulsion and yet not seem to do so.”
Constantine, a man who murdered his own family, is still a Saint in both churches. Child killing is the ultimate mark of the Semite and here you have Gregory cursing Constantine for not having killed enough children!
Gregory of course, is also a Saint. As is Cyril, who ordered the death of Hypatia.
Semitism is Semitism. It’s about killing children and destroying everything that is not the Self.
You can put ribbons and bows on it, as Christians have done, but it’s still that old turd of YAHVEH at the bottom of the basket.
Dashing out the brains of children on rocks is a theme in Jewish and Christian tradition, which begins in Psalms – though the fun doesn’t stop there, as we shall see.
“O daughter of Babylon, you devastated one, How blessed will be the one who repays you With the recompense with which you have repaid us. How blessed will be the one who seizes and dashes your little ones Against the rock.” Psalm 137
“Their infants will be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses will be looted and their wives violated.” Isaiah 13:16
“The people of Samaria must bear their guilt, because they have rebelled against their God. They will fall by the sword; their little ones will be dashed to the ground, their pregnant women ripped open.” Hosea 13:16
“Yet she was taken captive and went into exile. Her infants were dashed to pieces at every street corner. Lots were cast for her nobles, and all her great men were put in chains.” Nahum 3:10
“Cursed be he who does the Lords work remissly, cursed he who holds back his sword from blood.” Jeremiah 48:10
“Make ready to slaughter his sons for the guilt of their fathers; Lest they rise and posses the earth, and fill the breadth of the world with tyrants.” Isaiah 14:21
“Then I heard the LORD say to the other men, “Follow him through the city and kill everyone whose forehead is not marked. Show no mercy; have no pity! Kill them all – old and young, girls and women and little children. But do not touch anyone with the mark. Begin your task right here at the Temple.” So they began by killing the seventy leaders. “Defile the Temple!” the LORD commanded. “Fill its courtyards with the bodies of those you kill! Go!” So they went throughout the city and did as they were told.” Ezekiel 9:5-7
“You are my battle-ax and sword,” says the LORD. “With you I will shatter nations and destroy many kingdoms. With you I will shatter armies, destroying the horse and rider, the chariot and charioteer. With you I will shatter men and women, old people and children, young men and maidens. With you I will shatter shepherds and flocks, farmers and oxen, captains and rulers.” Jeremiah 51: 20-23
“This is what the LORD Almighty says: ‘I will punish the Amalekites for what they did to Israel when they waylaid them as they came up from Egypt. Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy [a] everything that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.’ “ 1 Samuel 15:2,3
“A Jew crushed the head of a girl between two stones. It was said to her. “Who has done this to you, such-and-such person, such-and-such person?” When the name of the Jew was mentioned, she nodded with her head, agreeing. So the Jew was brought and he confessed. The Prophet ordered that his head be crushed with the stones. (Hammam said, “with two stones.”)” Sahih Bukhari 9:83,23
“The Prophet… was asked whether it was permissible to attack the pagan warriors at night with the probability of exposing their women and children to danger. The Prophet replied, “They (i.e. women and children) are from them (i.e. pagans).” Sahih Bukhari 4:52,256
“Pour out thy wrath upon the heathen that have not known thee, and upon the kingdoms that have not called upon thy name.” Psalms 79:6
The veneration of this book is witness against Christians as well as Jews. To remonstrate with one and not the other would be un-ethical.
I am an ethical anti-Semite. Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Communism all have one root and one character style. If you participate in one of the latter three, especially if you have stolen their unholy books to make them *your* unholy books, then you are guilty, too.
Thomas Paine had their number. Those stories about American founding fathers being enlightened Deists and Freemasons have a lot of truth to them.
“Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and tortuous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we call it the word of a demon than the word of God. It is a history of wickedness that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind; and, for my part, I sincerely detest it, as I detest everything that is cruel.”
“It is far better that we admitted a thousand devils to roam at large than that we permitted one such imposter and monster as Moses, Joshua, Samuel, and the Bible prophets, to come with the pretended word of God and have credit among us.”
“When I see throughout this book, called the Bible, a history of the grossest vices and a collection of the most paltry and contemptible tales and stories, I could not so dishonor my Creator by calling it by His name.”
“The most detestable wickedness, the most horrid cruelties, and the greatest miseries that have afflicted the human race have had their origin in this thing called revelation, or revealed religion. It has been the most destructive to the peace of man since man began to exist. Among the most detestable villains in history, you could not find one worse than Moses, who gave an order to butcher the boys, to massacre the mothers and then rape the daughters. One of the most horrible atrocities found in the literature of any nation. I would not dishonor my Creator’s name by attaching it to this filthy book”
“Whence arose all the horrid assassinations of whole nations of men, women, and infants, with which the Bible is filled; and the bloody persecutions, and tortures unto death, and religious wars, that since that time have laid Europe in blood and ashes; whence arose they, but from this impious thing called religion, and this monstrous belief that God has spoken to man?”
“Had the news of salvation by Jesus Christ been inscribed on the face of the sun and the moon, in characters that all nations would have understood, the whole earth had known it in twenty-four hours, and all nations would have believed it; whereas, though it is now almost two thousand years since, as they tell us, Christ came upon earth, not a twentieth part of the people of the earth know anything of it, and among those who do, the wiser part do not believe it.”
“It is necessary to the happiness of man that he be mentally faithful to himself. Infidelity does not consist in believing, or in disbelieving; it consists in professing to believe what one does not believe. It is impossible to calculate the moral mischief, if I may so express it, that mental lying has produced in society. When man has so far corrupted and prostituted the chastity of his mind, as to subscribe his professional belief to things he does not believe, he has prepared himself for the commission of every other crime.”
“Every phrase and circumstance are marked with the barbarous hand of superstitious torture, and forced into meanings it was impossible they could have. The head of every chapter, and the top of every page, are blazoned with the names of Christ and the Church, that the unwary reader might suck in the error before he began to read.”
Every word remains as true today as it was 200 and 2,000 years ago.
Orthodoxy has many very serious advantages over Catholicism and Protestantism. I would go so far as to say that they are overwhelming.
There are many folk practices preserved in Catholicism which are both wholesome and important for the understanding and thriving of the European soul.
Protestantism has three parts: Lutheranism/ Anglicanism, which preserve aspects of ritual life and of hierarchy and authority, Calvinism proper, and ultra-Calvinism – the Anglo-Saxon and Scottish Low Churches.
These last are so putrid, so unutterable, such an absolute inverse, reverse, perverse desecration of any possibility of goodness, divinity, humanity, worldliness, otherworldliness, love, beauty that C.S. Lewis, upon briefly seeing into their dark heart correctly pronounced on what he saw: Better, he said, to call it devil worship. I believe this totally, with the exception that devil worship has limits on its evil. Milton’s Lucifer is not in the least frightening if you’ve read the Old Testament.
No figuration of evil in Western Literature even comes close: not Iago, not Stavrogin, not the Oligarchical Collectivism of Orwell’s 1984, nobody. YHVH is the total inversion of God in every particular, which is why all our portrayals of evil are so grossly inadequate: we cannot draw a picture of True Evil without becoming aware that it is this which we worship. Therefore cream puffs like Iago and Stavrogin and Lucifer are pawned off as an ‘evil’ which they are only a dim reflection of.
And yet, as much as I would like to lay the whole matter in the laps of the Low Church, to curse Cromwell down through the ages, to dig up his bones and desecrate them again and again, to imagine that the Merrie England of Stained Glass and Mary and Maypoles and Passion Plays and Saints was a good one, this illusion has been shattered for me.
The straw that broke my back was Gillespie’s Theological Origins of Modernity. He shows, in a way that makes Catholics furious, that Protestantism is an always present possibility towards which the Church is always tending. They were the ones keeping the interpretation of the Bible and the Church Fathers on a leash by lying, corruption and – who knows? possibly even foresight or fear. But Gillespie lists too many Protestants-before-the-fact for anyone to be in any doubt.
Catholics – the smarter kind – screech like a herd of swine when you talk about this book with them, or even mention it. In case anyone needs scientific proof that it’s true.
Orthodoxy also senses a mortal enemy in Whites, whom it is parasitic upon.
Orthodoxy is the highest and best form of Christianity, but it is still Christianity. It is still a discourse of the Elect.
A person who is Elect is by his admission absolutely morally corrupt and untrustworthy. Absolutely.
The threat to Christianity is threefold:
a) a revelation and general discussion of the actual contents of the Bible and what this indicates about the people who wrote it would obliterate Christianity – even physically. No Church, no Churchman, nothing would be safe. The reaction to counter-religion could be as violent and totalizing as the default attitude of counter-religions (Judaism, Islam, Christianity, Communism) towards each other and towards all human existence.
b) a revelation of the nature of Jewry, it’s goals and methods and the unimaginable (to us) lengths to which it is willing to go to achieve goals that are also unimaginable to even remotely morally normal people.
This is one of the great advantages that Jewry possesses: when people begin to understand and start to explain *what* Jews are doing and *how* they are doing it, it is legitimately incredible. A morally normal person – by which I mean a European – will not believe that anyone, much less a highly coordinated group of anyones – could possibly wish such things or act with such precision and tenacity.
However, given all this, the revelation of what Jewry is would obliterate Christianity at a stroke. The legitimacy of the Bible would be invalidated, except for the insane. We are beginning to see this in Messianic YHVHism, Reform Presbyterianism, Christian Identity, and many other movements.
c) all loyalty to nation, race, culture and civilization comes at the expense of loyalty and cash and deference and control that the Church enjoys currently. One needs only mention the possibility of the relationship between biology and culture and that awful, swinish screeching begins anew.
The total abandonment of the Greek people to immigration and mosque building by the Orthodox Church, who I guess hasn’t been paying attention to the fate of Christians in the Middle East, is astounding to me. I did expect more from Orthodoxy. I thought it was adapted to national life, and had some concern for that. I am willing to admit that I was completely wrong, while still maintaining that Orthodox theology, with its hatred of Augustine, Original Sin, Atonement and so forth, is, as I have said, overwhelmingly superior to Catholic understanding.
I also continue to maintain that Protestantism is at the opposite end of the scale: total misunderstanding of even the smallest details of human needs with relation to the divine or to the reality of the divine, its nature and abilities and proper modes of approach. Protestantism is the lowest and worst place that humanity has come to in its understanding of itself, the world, and god. I would place it with Mexican indigenous religion, Communism, and Judaism itself as the closest approximations to a total inversion of a proper understanding of the cosmos and man’s place in it.
How would I compare it to Islam? I’ll just say this: when people say that Islam needs a Reformation, I just laugh and laugh and laugh. Islam *is* the Reformation.
Elizabeth I wrote letters to the Sultan as a thoughtful note to accompany the weaponry and raw materials for weaponry she was selling him, listing the many points of similarity between their religions, even remarking that they had more in common with each other than either did with Catholicism. “Neither of us holds marriage a sacrament,” the old cunt exulted to the Sultan.
Now you know why France can mount huge protests against Gay Marriage without a hint of homophobia while Anglo-Saxon lands get the worst of both worlds: fanatical homo-hatred, hateful homos loyal to the Revolution, *and* gay marriage.
Low Church Protestantism: the worst of all possible worlds.
