This summer, the sex scandal that has bedeviled the Catholic Church went critical.

First came the stunning revelation that Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, former Archbishop of Washington and friend to presidents, had for decades been a predator-priest who preyed on seminarians and abused altar boys, and whose depravity was widely known and covered up.

Came then the report of a Pennsylvania grand jury that investigated six dioceses and found that some 300 priests had abused 1,000 children over the last 70 years.

The bishop of Pittsburgh, Donald Wuerl, now Cardinal Archbishop of Washington, defrocked some of these corrupt priests, but reassigned others to new parishes where new outrages were committed.

This weekend brought the most stunning accusation.

Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, Vatican envoy to the United States under Pope Benedict XVI, charged that Pope Francis had been told of McCarrick’s abuses, done nothing to sanction him, and that, as “zero tolerance” of sexual abuse is Francis’ own policy, the pope should resign.

In his 11-page letter of accusations, Vigano further charged that there is a powerful “homosexual current” among the Vatican prelates closest to the pope.

What did the pope know and when did he know it?

Not unlike Watergate, the issue here is whether Pope Francis knew what was going on in the Vatican and in his Church, and why he was not more resolute in rooting out the moral squalor.

Orthodox, conservative and traditionalist Catholics are the most visible and vocal demanding an accounting. Progressive and liberal Catholics, to whom Pope Francis and Cardinal McCarrick were seen as allies on issues of sexual morality, have been thrown on the defensive.

Now, accusations alone are neither proof nor evidence.

Yet there is an obligation, an imperative, given the gravity of the revelations, that the Vatican address the charges.

When did Pope Francis become aware of McCarrick’s conduct, which appears to have been widely known? Did he let his close friendship with McCarrick keep him from doing his papal and pastoral duty?

This destructive scandal has been bleeding for decades. Too long. The Church is running out of time. It needs to act decisively now.

Priests who prey on parochial school children and altar boys are not only sinners, they are criminal predators who belong in penitentiary cells not parish rectories. They ought to be handed over to civil authorities.

While none of us is without sin, sexually active and abusive clergy should be severed from the priesthood. There needs to be a purge at the Vatican, removing or retiring bishops, archbishops and cardinals, the revelation of whose past misconduct would further feed this scandal.

For too long, the Catholic faithful have been forced to pay damages and reparations for crimes and sins of predator priests and the hierarchy’s collusion and complicity in covering them up.

And it needs be stated clearly: This is a homosexual scandal.

Almost all of the predators and criminals are male, as are most of the victims: the boys, the teenagers, the young seminarians.

Applicants to the seminary should be vetted the way applicants to the National Security Council are. Those homosexually inclined should be told the priesthood of the Church is not for them, as it is not for women.

Secular society will call this invidious discrimination, but it is based on what Christ taught and how he established his Church.

Inevitably, if the church is to remain true to herself, the clash with secular society, which now holds that homosexuality is natural and normal and entitled to respect, is going to widen and deepen.

For in traditional Catholic teaching, homosexuality is a psychological and moral disorder, a proclivity toward acts that are intrinsically wrong, and everywhere and always sinful and depraved, and ruinous of character.

The idea of homosexual marriages, recently discovered to be a constitutional right in the USA, remains an absurdity in Catholic doctrine.

If the Church’s highest priority is to coexist peacefully with the world, it will modify, soften, cease to preach, or repudiate these beliefs, and follow the primrose path of so many of our separated Protestant brethren.

But if she does, it will not be the same Church that over centuries accepted martyrdom to remain the faithful custodian of Gospel truths and sacred tradition.

And how has the embrace of modernity and its values advanced the religious faiths whose leaders sought most earnestly to accommodate them?

The Church is going through perhaps its gravest crisis since the Reformation. Since Vatican II, the faithful have been departing, some leaving quietly, others embracing agnosticism or other faiths.

“Who am I to judge?” said the pope when first pressed about the morality of homosexuality.

Undeniably, Francis, and the progressive bishops who urge a new tolerance, a new understanding, a new appreciation of the benign character of homosexuality, have won the plaudits of a secular press that loathed the Church of Pius XII.

Of what value all those wonderful press clippings now, as the chickens come home to roost in Vatican City?

    Catholicism is so over. It should be called Gay-tholicism.

    Also, what do you expect from a religion that doesn’t allow its priests to marry? What kind of decent man is going to be attracted to such calling? They’ll just suffer from explosive-ball-syndrome.

    Another thing. In the past, the church has genuine power and prestige. So, even if you committed yourself to self-denying celibacy, there was compensation in respect and authority. You were respected by the community, from elites to the masses.
    These days, no one respects priests anymore. So, who would want to give up family-and-sex for a thankless profession that no one pays attention to? Men and women who get the most respect are the humpers.

    But worse than homo-ization of the church is the Africanization. As Europeans have given up on the faith, the church is being taken over by Africans. Vatican will be an African stronghold in Europe, and it won’t be long before there is a Negro pope, possibly even before there is a black 007. Already, the real gods of New West are MLK and Mandela(MLK for EU). Imagine a black pope on top of that.

    Christianity had a long great run. But it is over. Its great formula can be seen in HAIL CAESAR and RISEN, both movies about the fusion of Jewish prophecy and Pagan Military Prowess.

    But everything is falling apart. Even Judaism is shaking. MOTHER! shows the crisis of the Jewish mind.
    And Paul Schrader’s FIRST REFORMED shows Protestantism veering off the wheels, trying to stay relevant either through commercialism or radicalism.

    These are crisis times, a time for new visions and religions.

    When he was interviewed in 2010, the Vatican official responsible for investigating sex abuse said that 60 per cent of the cases involved ‘adolescents of the same sex’, 30 per cent were heterosexual, and ten per cent involved ‘sexual attraction to pre-pubescent children.’

    Communist “infiltrators” were merely returning to home base, as noted by Ludgwig von Mises who wrote that “primitive Christianity is Bolshevism.” (Socialism, p. 413) Marx’s maxim promoting common property is lifted straight from the Bible:

    Jew Testament
    • “each according to his ability” (Matthew 25:15)
    • “all things were common property to them…and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need” (Acts 4:32-35)

    Jew Marx
    “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.”

    John the Baptist was a communist too.

    John answered, “Anyone who has two shirts should share with the one who has none, and anyone who has food should do the same.” (Luke 3:11)

    And for those excuse-makers who say the Church’s Communism is “voluntary,” the double murder for money in Acts 5:1-11 puts the lie to that notion. “Now a man named Ananias, together with his wife Sapphira, also sold a piece of property…Great fear seized the whole church and all who heard about these events.” What is done out of great fear isn’t voluntary, it’s done out of coercion.

    The Africanization of the Church was promoted by the Holy Jewspirit and the Jewapostle Philip when the first Black was recruited in Acts 8:26-40. By Acts 13:1, Blacks were being elevated to leadership positions as “teachers and prophets.” That happened because Christianity has always been a Jewish universalist cult.

    John 3:16 “For Jewgod so loved the kosmos [universe]…that the kosmos [universe] through Jewgod might be saved.”

    Thus it’s no surprise to discover the International Jew (Matthew 28:19, Luke 24:47) cult leader Jewsus demands that his followers hate their blood kin (Luke 14:26) and forsake their own soil (Matthew 19:27-30), all the while denigrating Gentile white patriarchy (Matthew 20:25, Mark 10:42, Luke 22:25) as evil. Amazing how some things haven’t changed for 2000 years.

    One diocese of RC church has more cases than all this site covered. Plus most of the sources are from leftie sited.

    And even RC church can’t come nowhere near UNICEF or any other “secular institution” like public schools for example.

    Ofc. Virgile got a bi carried away, with his claim, plus main reason whole scandal in RC church got that big is mostly because rather odd cannon, that actually encourages protection of these pedos, by simply moving them to new place.

  23. Catholic Church is entire civilization. Basically, if we leave aside metaphysical issues, RCC was the force that created early modern West (and preserved the heritage of the Greco-Roman culture). For a believer like Pat, the Church is just a visible part of the fundamental triple entity, i.e. Ecclesia Militans ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Churches_Militant,_Penitent,_and_Triumphant ).

    But, taking a more empirical approach: isn’t the Church simply too big, too diverse & too…medieval? Too ungovernable? Pedo scandals seem, now, the burning issue. In my opinion, this can be dealt with. Just, fundamental question remains: have Western peoples overgrown any religion? Some may still feel an attraction to medieval mystique as represented in the Catholic Church; others prefer Hamburger Christianity, which is Americanized Protestantism; others still may belong to Eastern Orthodox denominations, which are national religions- essentially Judaism in the guise of Christianity.

    If Judaism is Ur-Kebab, and Islam Kebab on steroids- isn’t Christianity the Euro-Kebab? And, however many of us may feel sentimental towards our past, perhaps the time of Kebab, in any form, for Euro peoples has passed…

    “Catholicism is so over.”

    It certainly is on the decline, but it’s definitively not over.

    “What kind of decent man is going to be attracted to such calling?”

    Pious men.

    “They’ll just suffer from explosive-ball-syndrome.”

    Some will.

    “These days, no one respects priests anymore.”

    That is clearly false. Congregation members in particular hold their priests in high esteem for spiritual guidance. When you employ terms such as “no one” or “never” or “always”, your position is easily destroyed.

    Can do, cackling fool.

    Jesus’s words are full of resentment against the rich, and the Apostles are no meeker in this respect. The Rich Man is condemned because he is rich, the Beggar praised because he is poor…. In God’s Kingdom the poor shall be rich, but the rich shall be made to suffer. Later revisers have tried to soften the words of Christ against the rich … but there is quite enough left to support those who incite the world to hatred of the rich, revenge, murder and arson…. This is a case in which the Redeemer’s words bore evil seed. More harm has been done, and more blood shed, on account of them than by the persecution oaf heretics and the burning of witches. They have always rendered the Church defenceless against all movements which aim at destroying human society. The church as an organization has certainly always stood on the side of those who tried to ward off communistic attack. But it … was continually disarmed by the words: “Blessed be ye poor; for yours is the Kingdom of God.”

    Christian faith, being universalist (John 3:16), is not centered along racial and ethnic lines. Except the Jews are still super-special (Matthew 15:24). Jewsus was a typical Jew talking out of both sides of his mouth: nationalism for me, universalism for thee. Nothing much has changed in 2000 years!

  28. I was told 90%+ of McCarrick’s sins in 2002 by a priest of Opus Dei, plus various related things, including that when word got out that McCarrick was in line for D.C., a dossier was sent to the Vatican by a concerned group. The response was that it was too late. I was also told that the nuncio had forced McC to sell “Sodom by the Sea.” I had no other status or connections; Father saw that I was a kindred spirit and poured out his heart on this and other matters. He also was very upset about John Paul II’s attack on capital punishment, and made the mistake of giving me an extract on the subject by an Italian traditionalist schola that led me to becoming an SSPX faithful in a matter of months.

    With Vatican II, the modernism condemned by St. Pius X became the faith of the Church leadership, and in the last half century has made great progress in replacing Almighty God with Almighty Man. Pope Francis is busy finishing the job by trashing morals as his predecessors have trashed faith. Crazy as it may sound, clerical sodomy is one of our lesser problems.

    Yeah, we’ll get bent just as soon as you obey the Jews’ 10 commandments and have no other god before thee. But, as it stands, you’re still honoring Norse gods four days per week.

    • Tuesday, named to honor the Norse god of war, Tiu, or Tyr, the son of Odin.
    • Wednesday, named to honor Odin, or Woden, chief god in Norse mythology.
    • Thursday, named to honor Thor, Norse god of thunder.
    • Friday, named to honor the Norse goddess of love, Frigg, or Frija.

    Plus a Roman god Saturn tomorrow, and the Sun and Moon gods after that. Of course, Jesus is nothing more than another iteration of a pagan Sun God anyway, which is why Sun Day is so special, along with those Easter Sun Rise services. And try finding “Easter” in the Bible.

    I’m going to disagree with the “conventional wisdom” that links celibacy of priests with sexual abuse.

    First of all, most of those scandals really consist in homosexual acts. A man with normal heterosexual inclinations would NOT become gay or pedophile just because of celibacy. What you would see more is priests abandoning the priesthood to get married, and while this happens, it’s not so often.

    Second, my general impression is that celibacy does not increase the appetite for sex, on the contrary, it reduces it. Sex (like drugs or alcohol) is something that, the more you have, the more you want. And if you think that married persons never sexually abuse children or young people, I have a bridge to sell you. (In fact, a married predator can abuse more, as he will likely have more access to children)

    Third, while some level of corruption is expected in all human institutions, and the Church is not exempt, what we are seeing and have seen for decades now is really a purposeful infiltration of homosexuals in the Vatican (an example: http://www.thinkinghousewife.com/wp/2018/08/who-was-gregory-baum/)

Yes, a lot of new age types like playing paganism-light, but real religion needs actual faith and belief, that’s just the way it goes. Maybe it could happen, but I doubt it.

It seems that people really need faith and belief in the supernatural, that is, in something beyond mere materialism. Even if it is something stupid as NIXVM or Scientology or whatever. If not people just basically give up on living and reproducing, as it’s happening in the West now.

    So, either Christianity will be reborn and save Europe (as Chesterton in a way predicted), or maybe a new religion will arise from the (self-)destruction of the West. Honestly, I have no idea.

  53. Mr. Buchanan’ article shows moral courage rarely seen among Catholics nowadays. The author reference to Vatican II puts the matter of the occult Catholic Church under the spotlight.
    However, for those interested in a thorough analysis of the transformation of the Catholic Church from the Church of Christ to the current church that shares the same bed with other powerful secret societies, I highly recommend the following book written by the propaply the highest Catholic scholar on the subject, Mr. Michael Hoffman: THE OCCULT RENAISSANCE CHURCH OF ROME.
    Mr. Hoffman’s unbiased and meticulous research is second to none. It delves into the true role of the Catholic Church and how the Church’s hierarchy fools the lower ranks of the Catholic clergy and the laity.
    The revelations of this book will open the eyes of any researcher to the true face of most popes who ruled the church over the past five centuries. Only then can one realise that the current Pope is not such an aberration as he might seem to be.

    The white-hating Jewess Barbara Specter claims the same thing. It’s funny how Jew-addled Christians always turn against their own people, but then, that is exactly what Jewsus commanded them to do, turn on their own, and hate their blood kin (Luke 14:26) and forsake their own soil (Matthew 19:27-30).

    Think Jewsus will reward you enough in Jerusalem for being a traitor to your own, hmm? A reward for being a traitor to your own is what you’re seeking, it says so in the Jew Testament.

    For a traditional Catholic (that is, one who believes what the Church taught prior to Vatican II), the problem is that Jesus’s numerous miracles demonstrated that he was in fact God as well as man, but the Jewish leadership was not willing to accept his leadership, trafficked unsuccessfully in all sorts of BS and loaded questions to try to discredit him, and finally orchestrated his crucifixion.

    Pope Paul VI said at the end of Vatican II that it was all about getting friendly with the Church’s enemies and in the process purifying them. The getting friendly happened in spades. The purification happened not at all. On the contrary, the Church’s leadership adopted some of the positions of its enemies and ceased criticizing others, while not admitting that that was what it was doing. That leadership is in effect running a liberal Protestant denomination and either ignoring or persecuting those who uphold the Church’s traditional doctrine and practice.

A cheat every way. Looks as if butter wouldn’t melt in her mouth and yet has a satirical wit. The sort of creature who’d find ME funny!

    ….He’s a hedonist at heart. All those fasts and vigils and stakes and crosses are only a façade. Or only like foam on the sea shore. Out at sea, out in His sea, there is pleasure, and more pleasure. He makes no secret of it; at His right hand are “pleasures for evermore”. Ugh! I don’t think He has the least inkling of that high and austere mystery to which we rise in the Miserific Vision. He’s vulgar, Wormwood. He has a bourgeois mind. He has filled His world full of pleasures. There are things for humans to do all day long without His minding in the least — sleeping, washing, eating, drinking, making love, playing, praying, working, Everything has to be twisted before it’s any use to us.

    Wrong question. It should be, “Are all married heterosexual men normal.”
    Christianity of all stripes is about rejecting the natural, the normal, the “World”.

    It is about embracing the unnatural, the magical, the holy, the mysterious. Everybody except normals. Normals should be converted. After all, they are all sinners, with lust in their hearts and must be saved from all that normality. Refer to J. Carters statement.

    By rejecting normal men in favor of not-normal men, in any organization, no one should be surprised by an accumulation of not-normal men.

    Decency isn’t a requirement for marriage. These days, not even opposite sex is required.

  72. What has not been given publicity is the devastating effect the payment of over $3billion in lawsuits to the victims, (and of course the lawyers). of this abuse has been. This incredible amount amount of money has been paid by the Catholic church in the US which has had to sell property and file bankruptcy in order to raise the money. The hardest hit have been the various charities once actively supported by the church. I have seen direct evidence of this.
    My great aunt was the Mother Superior of the Convent of the Good Shepherd in Grand Rapids, Michigan over 75 years ago. I corresponded with a number of the nuns who had been in that convent who are now old and retired. Only one, age 91 is still alive and resides in a church-sponsored nursing home. She like most of her fellow nuns dedicated her life to the service of the church and had no means of accumulating wealth on her own. About two years ago she asked me to send her a small amount of money each month. I was happy to do so but the thought crossed my mind that the church is not supporting her institution as it had always done and it had to be lack of funds due to payment of the law suits. The many good priests, nuns and brothers who are now old have had to rely on the charity of the church to live out their lives in some semblance of dignity. I am afraid this is no longer happening in too many cases. I feel sure Pat is aware of all this.and can expand on it in a future column.

    The Jewish leadership were particularly threatened because so many ordinary people did believe. If Jesus had been just another crazy self-styled prophet or political radical, like the ones Gamaliel mentioned to the Sanhedrin, they could have ignored him and waited for his cult to fade, as the others did. That wasn’t happening. After the resurrection, many Jews were “cut to the heart” by Peter’s reproaches, although he acknowledged at the Portico “you acted out of ignorance, just as your leaders did.” Thousands converted and were baptized, but very few of them seem to have been leaders.

    The worst immediate result of ecumenism is the addition of whiny Protestant hymns to the liturgy. Oh, and felt banners.

    Break the laws of nature? As you’ve just admitted, Christian belief in a trannyformed body is rooted in the same psychological problem as gender-queer trans-sexuals: a rebellion against natural reality.

    HallParvey wisely noted this unnatural perversion of desires above in comment #71, and the Jew Testament itself confirms:

    Be ye trannyformed by the renewing of your frontal cortex rationalization hamster wheel. -Romans 12:2

    Christians and other trannies are actually in rebellion against The Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God, as you’ve openly and publicly admitted. Like I’ve been saying, not much has changed in 2000 years. The Christian penchant for unnatural desires pretty much explains the divine pederasty of the priestcraft, which started with the Jewish Rabbi founder, Jesus.

    Pictured above is a sculpture of the Rape of Ganymede.

    Jesus is to Zeus what John the Beloved is to Ganymede. Christian men themselves are engaged to be Jesus’ lovers as Brides of Jewchrist, and expect to be Rape-tured.

The Church, probably from its inception, was infiltrated by an evil cult — Judaic in origin but in present day has more acolytes from Christian backgrounds — that utilizes the ritual rape and murder of children as part of its sacrament. The Church has long been the Whore of Babylon, but then the same can be said of Western Civilization.

    Christianity is a divine pederasty cult from the Levant, where such practice was common. Corn-holing altar boys isn’t a flaw in the program, it’s a feature for the perverted priestcraft of the last 2000 years. This is well documented in the text by historian Diana Agorio entitled Sex Rites: The Origins of Christianity. If you can afford the $472 to $798 for a used copy, be prepared to be nauseated.

    An example in the book is Paul’s ribald innuendo that uses a play on words about how useful a slave-boy named “Useful” was to both himself and his Master He-Who-Kisses.

    Priests are married to nobody, and doing nothing to directly perpetuate their own families and nation. Nuns are married to nobody, and doing nothing to directly perpetuate their own families and nation.

    They also lack the fulfillment, companionship, grounding, comfort, responsibilities, rewards, and emotional / psychological maturation that can and should (and often do) come with marriage and parenthood.

    You are correct, the ritual rape and murder of children has been documented by archeologists, as described by historian Diana Agorio in her text entitled Sex Rites: The Origins of Christianity. You cannot imagine the horrors they’ve dug in the Levant.

    Diana graduated magna cum laude with a BS in History. Her primary fascination is with the cultures of the Bronze Age and Iron Age Levant….She hopes to dispel the atheist notion that the Bible is Bronze Age mythology. Actually, it is Hellenistic Period mythology, which was significantly different from Bronze Age religious notions. The Bible was not the product of “the people” of the Levant. It was produced by priests with particular political and economic ambitions. Diana’s description of changes in the religious rituals and myths which led up to Christianity is far more damning than the typical atheist critique. In particular, it describes the outrageous suffering of children at the hands of ancient religious leaders.

    If a bad reputation was all it took, L. Ron Hubbard’s influence would be trashed too. Yet he built quite the successful Church.

    The Jesus character’s perversions are recorded in the Gospels for all to see. You might want to peruse Eric Hoffer’s text The True Believer: Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements (Harper, 1951), in which he describes Jewsus’ bad reputation as an anti-family fanatic:

    Still, not one of our contemporary movements was so outspoken in its antagonism toward the family as was early Christianity. Jesus minced no words: “For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me, is not worthy of me.” When He was told that His mother and brothers were outside desiring to speak with Him He said: “Who is my mother? and who are my brethren? And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother, and my brethren!” When one of His disciples asked leave to go and bury his father, Jesus said to him: “Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.” He seemed to sense the ugly family conflicts His movement was bound to provoke both by its proselytizing and by the fanatical hatred of its antagonists. “And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.” [Section 32]

    True believers gonna believe. Even that Jewsus was somehow pro-family. That’s sad, because the gullible true believers expose their children to the risk of being abused by the priestcraft who must “hate” their own blood kin as much as the Jesus character told them to.

    P.S. Also see The Bad Jesus: The Ethics of New Testament Ethics (Sheffield Phoenix Press, 2015), especially chapter 3, “The Hateful Jesus: Luke 14.26.”

Our local public school had teachers who didn’t know the subjects and relied on group work for everything, the requisite sadistic gym teacher, and a lot of vapid “projects” about prejudice and saving the environment. It was so bad, one of the Jewish kids whose mother was a teacher herself took her out and put her in the local Quaker school.

    Cardinal Consalvi did not have a conception about IQ and its relation to race as we do today. When Stalin asked how many divisions the pope had, he did not deal with IQ and race. Today, China has broken ties with the Vatican and will have its own “Chinese Roman Church” with its own priests and bishops. How many nukes does the Vatican have? This break is good thing for the West.

    We are at a very interesting time in world history. The world has been settled, mapped and IQs measured. The blue marble is it. Man will never live on the moon or Mars. White flight to these places will never happen. The RCC has been destroyed by diversity – i.e., blacks/Asians. The communion wafer (consecrated) does not work for these groups. These 2 groups have the lowest IQs and there is nothing that can help them. A good example of Asian degeneracy is Talha. His taquiyya comment thanking you for your defense of the RCC is the epitome of Islamic heresy spouted by a person from a second tier race.

    As a reminder, I was a cradle RCCer and my family has been RCC for hundreds of years. When I saw an Asian priest say the mass at a church I attended, the first non-white priest I had ever seen say a mass, I saw this as an abomination and began to rethink the RCC. Now many people are seeing this. There will always be Christianity. We will find out the true religion when we die, but the best religion on earth is Christianity. But, above Christianity, the best thing on earth is to be born Caucasian with an IQ of 90+. This is the truth everyone must realize so that the West can be set free.

    Have you ever read Decameron, First day, Second story?

    Here’s a summary from Wikipedia:

    Abraham, a Jew of Paris, is the friend of Giannotto di Civignì, who for years has urged him to become a Christian. One day Abraham departs for Rome, telling Giannotto that he wants to see the leaders of the Church – the pope and the curia – to decide whether or not he wants to convert. Giannotto, knowing of the debauched and decadent ways of the Roman clergy, fears Abraham will never want to convert after witnessing the corruption of the Church. But when Abraham returns, he converts, concluding that if Christianity can still spread even when its hierarchy is so corrupt, it must be the true word of God.

    In this caustic story, the Jew converts because he logically concludes that only a religion supported by God could prosper despite the corruption of its leadership.

    As one translation has Abraham tell Gianotto:

    To the best of my judgment, your Pastor, and by consequence all that are about him devote all their zeal and ingenuity and subtlety to devise how best and most speedily they may bring the Christian religion to nought and banish it from the world. And because I see that what they so zealously endeavour does not come to pass, but that on the contrary your religion continually grows, and shines more and more clear, therein I seem to discern a very evident token that it, rather than any other, as being more true and holy than any other, has the Holy Spirit for its foundation and support.

    Yes, I have read the Decameron and know of the Jew who converted. There’s another side that no one likes to talk about. Boccaccio wrote the book during the Black Plague.

He didn’t use the words IQ because they did not exist, but he could see the differences in intelligence between the intelligent and less intelligent. Once the plague ended, the more intelligent survivors started the Renaissance.

    When this Jew converted it was in the 1300s in Europe. Fast forward to the present. Compare three groups of people. RCC Haiti – blacks, avg. IQ 67; RCC El Salvador – Amerindians (Asians) avg. IQ 81; Utah Mormons – Caucasian/European – mostly of English descent avg. IQ 105.

    And Jesus wasn’t showing off. His mother wanted Him to do it, so the hosts wouldn’t be embarrassed. Notice that after He seemingly tries to get out of it, His mother tells the servants, “Do whatever He tells you,” as if she fully expects Him to comply with her wishes–as of course, He does.

    Per Haydock:

    And there are eunuchs, who have made themselves eunuchs, &c. It is not to be taken in the literal sense, but of such who have taken a firm and commendable resolution of leading a single life. — He that can receive it, let him receive it. Some think that to receive, in this and the foregoing verse, is to understand; and so will have the sense to be, he that can understand what I have said of different eunuchs, let him understand it; as when Christ said elsewhere, he that hath ears to hear, let him hear. But others expound it as an admonition to men and women, not to engage themselves in a vow of living a single life, unless, after serious deliberation, they have good grounds to think they can duly comply with this vow, otherwise let them not make it. Thus St. Jerome on this place, and St. John Chrysostom where they both expressly take notice, that this grace is granted to every one that asketh and beggeth for it by prayer. (Witham) — To the crown and glory of which state, let those aspire who feel themselves called by heaven.

    I’m sorry to say this, but your (and HBDers) obsession with IQ is stupid and borders on lunacy. Ancient people may not have the concept of “IQ” (which is really just a test), but they sure as hell knew that some people (and some races) were more intelligent than others. They knew even from the initial contact that Africans and Amerindians were not as bright/civilized as White people, and that Asians were different too. This has little to do with the issue at hand. The Catholic Church was destroyed in the Vatican II, but even before that it was already in decadence, much before multiculturalism, which is affecting all former western institutions in any case, and not just the Catholic Church.

    Uh yeah – you speak English, right? There aren’t many ways to interpret my following statement:
    “When I get my federal notice in the mail that my citizenship has been revoked and I have to leave the country; I will make plans to sell my house and move my family.”

    Now, I’m an adult, married man with a family and a job where I manage an IT team in a large company. I’m not just going to plan to uproot my family because some anonymous guy said he didn’t want me around and posted some Nazi graphics on an online forum. Could you imagine that conversation with the wife?

    Look, I get where you are coming from – everyone has the right to advocate the policies they want implemented. So keep doing what you are doing and, if successful, the Nazi party may well come into power in the US and I – and my family – may be legally required to board a boat East within your lifetime. Then you can sit back and relax and pop open some champagne over an accomplished life and tell your grand kids all about it. Sounds like paradise…

    I once gave advice on how to go about this:

    I suggest getting with your congressmen/senators and proposing legislation to add amendments to the Constitution to make exceptions to the religion-neutral clauses to make exceptions for Islam and Muslims. A super-majority will likely be required. A good strategy would be to come up with a strong single-issue advocacy group. Once this initial step is accomplished, the doors will be open legally for; 1) stripping Muslims of citizenship, 2) excluding them from certain areas of influence, 3) consigning and forcing them into certain regions/areas/locales or 4) expelling them to Muslim lands (with or without compensation).

    Come up with a single-issue organization that votes as a bloc on only one thing; legal relocation of Muslims from the West – forget abortion, foreign policy, economic trade pacts, welfare, etc. Make every representative know they will be graded and publicly made known. I would suggest working with the NRA (the preeminent one-issue group) to get tips on how to proceed – you will likely have a good amount of overlap:

Danelaw would rant and rave about Jews/blacks, and believed in paganism. The cuck has disappeared. Whenever I see or hear Nazis I automatically know either Jews, the USA, German or Israeli governments are behind them. There was another Nazi, Florian Geyer. I commented about him several weeks ago. He bade RadioAryan goodbye last week. He said he has to focus on his studies. He’s a Canadian cuck who stated that Canada and USA are done for and need to be split up.

    There were not that many wealthy people. And no matter how much they tried to quarantine themselves, many died from the plague. I remember seeing a PBS show about the Black Plague. They brought out something interesting. From the historical records they were able to see that there were three categories of people who got the plague: some died within a couple of weeks; some got very sick for a couple of weeks but fully recovered; some never got sick at all. I know about malnutrition and other diseases, but Boccaccio specifically mentioned intelligence. However, we see that the final results were that the stronger and more intelligent survived. These survivors procreated the generations who started the Renaissance.

    I know about the Irish. The Irish have lots of problems. They are intelligent but also very degenerate. We got the cream of the crop. However, the actual Irish IQ in Ireland IQ is 97. A lot of their issues stemmed from English occupation, but that is pretty much over. They have quickly degenerated. They voted on a nationwide basis for legalizing abortion and homosexual marriage. Here in the USA, these two horrors were imposed on us by Supreme Court fiats. The Irish voted for an East Indian, homo Taoiseach. The Irish have to get it to together.

Jesus only appeared as a helpless baby in Mary’s arms, as a dead man nailed to a cross, and as little wafers of bread hidden inside a fancy box. Visually and emotionally the message was very clear ‑- if you want real power, if you want someone who can do something for you, then go to Mary and the Saints.

    Mary is hardly a Feminist. She remained an obscure housewife in Galilee for most of her life, only going to Jerusalem for feast days, and eventually, to witness her Son’s excution and receive His Body. There is no record of her publicly speaking; she only answered John’s and Luke’s questions so they could write their Gospels. There is no record of her taking an interest in politics, let alone wishing to vote or run for public office.

    What is recorded is that she carried and gave birth to her Son under difficult, even dangerous circumstances, continuing to protect Him as well as she could (as did His foster father) by fleeing across the Sinai desert to Egypt when His life was threatened.

    Try imagining the 80-mile trip to Bethlehem for a pregnant woman–with only animals for transportation. Now another 40 miles (at least) to get to Egyptian territory, with an infant.

    Now imagine her misery when her Son is tortured to death, and she not only can’t but must not do the thing she has spent her life trying to do: protect Him.

    We don’t worship Mary: she is not God. But she is the model Christian, particularly for Christian women. No Safe Spaces; no Trigger Warnings; no Pink Hats to protest whatever Caesar or Herod has done lately. Just loving Jesus in all situations.

He celebrated Passover with His disciples, the Last Supper where He said the First Mass and instituted the Eucharist. He fulfilled the Messianic prophecies in Isaiah and elsewhere. Pilate had a sign on His crucifix reading “King of the Jews” (whether meant ironically or sincerely). The Holy Spirit descended on the Jewish Feast of Weeks.

    When their ship sank a Benedictine, a Dominican, a Franciscan, and a Jesuit were crowded into a small lifeboat. It had a small leak and was in ever greater danger of sinking. Unfortunately, the boat was also surrounded by sharks.

    So the Dominican, confident in the preaching prowess of his order, stood on the prow and begin to preach to the sharks about Christian charity and the virtues of vegetarianism; but his sermon was cut short by a leaping shark who consumed him in one gulp.

    Then the Benedictine stood on the prow and began to charm the sharks with a stupendous rendition of the Exsultet, but just when he got to the part about the mother bee (mater apis) another shark dispatched him with a single gulp.

    Shortly thereafter the Franciscan, climbing onto the prow, began to pray, “Blessed are you, Lord my God, for brother shark,…” when one of the sister sharks cut him off in mid-benediction.

    Soon the lifeboat sank, leaving the Jesuit in the water with the sharks. But instead of eating him, several sharks towed him to shore and cast him up on the dry land. Stunned, he turned to ask them why they had not devoured him. They replied, “Professional courtesy!”

    What you are stating is your opinion on what the words mean, but that doesn’t really help if the vast majority of the Christians interpret otherwise. It just means you’ve got a really screwed up idea of what Christianity teaches if the normative voice of the Christian churches around the world state otherwise.

    What you should do is cite Christian scholars or doctrine that actually agrees with your interpretation to show us your views have weight among Christians themselves (especially at a scholarly level) – that would make more sense and someone like me would actually be interested in that kind of a debate.

    You’re leaving out words. Jesus claimed all this would happen in a short time, and he’d return within peoples’ lifetime. Which is why you shouldn’t bother living normal life.

    But he didn’t.

    Veneration and worship are not the same thing? You should have consulted a dictionary or thesarus before engaging in hairsplitting.

    You don’t engage in magical rituals? Liar.

    St. Paul engaged in evil sorcery as described in Acts 13:6-12. (Sorcery is here used in the same way as Exodus 22:18: a person saying magical words or performing magical rituals in order to harm or kill another person). During his journey to Cyprus, St. Paul met Bar-Jesus, who was an attendant of the Roman proconsul Sergius Paulus. He had a conflict with cursed Bar-Jesus, saying:

    “You are a child of the devil and an enemy of everything that is right! You are full of all kinds of deceit and trickery. Will you never stop perverting the right ways of the Lord? Now the hand of the Lord is against you. You are going to be blind, and for a time you will be unable to see the light of the sun. (NIV)

    Bar-Jesus heard the curse and immediately was blinded.

    This blithering dumbfuck is repeating the same anti-Catholic canards that scoffers have been saying for the last 2,000 years, as if nobody had ever heard this before. What kind of piece of shit idiot thinks to himself, “I know the Virgin Birth must be impossible, and therefore Mary was impregnated by natural means out-of-wedlock and Joseph was cucked. Ha ha ha!”, and then announces this ass-fuckingly banal observation with glee like he is the first person to ever think of it?

    @Anonymous

    Listen, you anonymous, smegma-eating jerkoff. Every Catholic person since the beginning of time knows where natural babies come from. So did Mary and Joseph. That’s why the Virgin Birth is miraculous. One would have to be almost as much of an imbecile as you to think that the Church would ever have tried to put over such an outrageous lie for so many years, if she had known it to be one.

    That doesn’t change what it says.

    According to your interpretation of it. This is how scripture always is – it is interpreted through the human mind. Just as it is being filtered through yours; how can you possibly claim to be unbiased?

    Now, it’s really a mathematics game; if 100% of people who are knowledgeable in it have come to one or other interpretation/conclusion and you have come to a completely divergent one, then obviously you are a massive outlier and your opinion can be dismissed.

    So what?

    Well, if there are actually loads of Christians that take you and your interpretations as authoritative, then that is another matter since your opinion, however unorthodox counts for something. Is this the case? Do any number of Christians pay heed to your interpretations?

    If not, you are debating a straw man that you have conjured up in your head. It’s amusing but – as I said, even as a Muslim – your approach makes little sense to me. It seems you are just blindly throwing darts and hoping something/anything sticks.

    as Muslims do with theirs

    Correct, we also have a normative voice that speaks on behalf of and defines religious doctrines. Which is why many of your arguments make no sense to me – especially if no Christian has historically believed or interpreted as such.

    He makes it so easy.

    Besides, all my work is done for me. Just have to copy and paste. For instance, the Virgin Birth:

    The idea that the progress of science has somehow altered this question is closely bound up with the idea that people “in olden times” believed in [miracles]“because they didn’t know the laws of Nature.” Thus you will hear people say, “The early Christians believed that Christ was the son of a virgin, but we know that this is a scientific impossibility.” Such people seem to have an idea that belief in miracles arose at a period when men were so ignorant of the cause of nature that they did not perceive a miracle to be contrary to it. A moment’s thought shows this to be nonsense: and the story of the Virgin Birth is a particularly striking example. When St. Joseph discovered this his fiancee was going to have a baby, he not unnaturally decided to repudiate her. Why? Because he knew just as well as any modern gynecologist that in the ordinary course of nature women do not have babies unless they have lain with men. No doubt the modern gynecologist knows several things about birth and begetting which St. Joseph did not know. But those things do not concern the main point–that a virgin birth is contrary to the course of nature. And St. Joseph obviously knew that.

    Of course, we’re getting into epistemology here.

    As always.

    But it’s also beyond that. I’m presenting a practical matter. If your interpretation of a particular verse is in complete contradiction to how it is interpreted by all Christians, then your opinion on it is completely irrelevant (in a very real sense) for believing Christians except for the ones that look to you for guidance.

    Christians think that a mass of people believing something makes it actually true.

    Irrelevant – we are not talking about truth. I don’t believe what’s recorded in the Bible is truth, but if the Church has always interpreted their own scriptures a certain way and it doesn’t jive with what you like, then that’s your problem. If you want to start a church based on your interpretation of the scripture, then go for it – but don’t purport to tell people what they believe when they don’t actually believe it…that just seems silly. If there are Christian teachings or scholars (especially of influence) you can point to that come to your same conclusions, then that would actually be getting somewhere. Otherwise, you are just some anonymous internet guy with a beef against Christianity and they’re a dime a dozen.

    Again, this is all coming from a non-Christian perspective. Hell, I might even thank you for breaking down some Church doctrines that may help me in a future debate or two, but I honestly couldn’t use much of what you say because I can barely find it coherent. Up your game, man.

Writer Michelangelo Signorile described Spellman, dubbed America’s Pope by some, as “one of the most notorious, powerful and sexually voracious homosexuals in the American Catholic Church’s history.” Even old J.

    That’s what theology is. They make it go down easy with smooth-talking.

    The smooth-talking eloquence is what theologians call Hermeneutics. Hermeneutics is named after Hermes, the Greek trickster god of smooth talking.

    Notably, Hermes is associated with being homoerotic. (Hermes also wore a petasus, a round hat, just like priests often still wear today.)

    Eros is also part of a triad of gods that played roles in homoerotic relationships, along with Heracles and Hermes, who bestowed qualities of Beauty (and Loyalty), strength, and eloquence, respectively, onto male lovers.

    They seem like anti-family quotations, because that is what they are, strongly anti-family sentiments from an anti-family radical Rabbi.

    Theologians agree with me. See chapter 3, “The Hateful Jesus: Luke 14.26″ in the scholarly text The Bad Jesus: The Ethics of New Testament Ethics.(Sheffield Phoenix Press, 2015) sheffieldphoenix.com/showbook.asp?bkid=294

    Other scholars have noted how anti-family Jesus was, such as Eric Hoffer in his text The True Believer: Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements (Harper, 1951) in which he writes, “Still, not one of our contemporary movements was so outspoken in its antagonism toward the family as was early Christianity. Jesus minced no words: ‘For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me, is not worthy of me.”14 When He was told that His mother and brothers were outside desiring to speak with Him He said: “Who is my mother? and who are my brethren? And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother, and my brethren!”15 When one of His disciples asked leave to go and bury his father, Jesus said to him: “Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.”16 He seemed to sense the ugly family conflicts His movement was bound to provoke both by its proselytizing and by the fanatical hatred of its antagonists. “And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.’”

    What sort of Christian denomination did you join that rejects clear pedestalization of Jews in the Jew Testament?

    • John 4:22 “Salvation is from the Jews.”
    • Acts 3:25 “He said to Abraham, ‘Through your offspring all peoples on earth will be blessed.’”
    • Romans 1:16 “The Jew first.”
    • Romans 9:4 “The people of Israel, chosen.”
    • Romans 15:27 “For if the Gentiles have shared in the Jews’ spiritual blessings, they owe it to the Jews to share with them their material blessings.”

    And that’s just a sampling, without touching the older Jew Testament.

    Christianity is indeed embarrassing and slave-like. At least that’s starting to sink in.

    The scouts, school, or gymnastics don’t have operations manuals that include divine pederasty. Christianity does. It has continued for 2000 years. The practice is an exact copy of Zeus’ pederasty with Ganymede. Christian art always shows an older bearded male and a young boy snuggled to the older man’s bosom. Just like John 13:23-25 states. It’s sick that you ignore it.

    And it’s what they teach in the semen-ary. Hidden, with innuendo, not right out in the open, as gays always have to behave. But it’s there. Why do you think so many gays actively seek positions in the priestcraft?

    But from the other angles – man that looks really bad – somebody ought to be getting fired for running a horrible marketing campaign.

    Some of those paintings you have posted make the Son of Mary (pbuh) look pretty effeminate. No idea why Christians would think it is a positive thing to depict him as such, again really bad marketing.

    But then, they do depict him in a pretty alpha mode when he comes back to Earth – so there’s that:

    Of course, we believe he will come back in fighting mode as well (and fight he shall) and then eventually marry, have children and then pass away – we have a grave reserved for him next to the Prophet (pbuh) in Madinah.

    Jewsus is depicted as effeminate. My ancestors also considered Jewsus a lily-livered coward.

    The term for “White Christ” or Hvítakristr came into currency among the heathen Icelanders at the time when pagan and Christian religions were in conflict…To call a man hvítr was to say that he was cowardly, effeminate…A related phrase was to say, “your liver is white” meaning again, a coward… which is almost identical to modern English usage, “lily-livered” with the same meaning.

    Why did the Vikings call Jesus the White [Lily-Livered] Christ?

    OK – I get it since he is basically depicted as a pacifist-turn-the-other-cheek kind of guy, but the actual Christians went pretty postal on the pagans in that area – they didn’t call it the Northern/Baltic Crusade for nothing…

    In the war between pagans and Christians…well, the Christians basically handed the pagans their backsides again and again. And they didn’t do any jizyah deals either; there’s a good reason why there were zero pagans in Europe until recently when neo-Paganism is coming around.

    Again, I can’t speak to the depiction of the Son of Mary (pbuh) for Christians. For us, his ministry was his Makkah stage – when he comes to live out the rest of his life (marriage, family, rulership, war, etc.), it will be his Madinah stage – which will definitely not be anything close to being depicted as effeminate. It seems the Christians agree on the point of him coming back to wage war (as I showed in the images) – so I guess we’ll have to wait it out and see.

    I’m well familiar, and your desert tribe does well to crow about the other desert tribe invading the Northern Forest People. Abrahamic Judeo-Christo-Islamic values.

    But the invasion meant to unite Europe under the Jew-worshiping Pope wasn’t successful for long. Luther was the North’s swift revenge for the Crusades. The Protestants printed the Jew Testament and thumped the Catholics into a minority. Ask the Spanish how their Invincible Armada faired. Deus limp. Defeated by Nordic/Celtic/Anglo/Saxon berserkers who set their own ships on fire and pulled up beside Catholic sailors and put the fear of Lord Vader in them, sent them packing back south.

    Northern Europe has now discarded the stupid mysticism of Jewianity (with many folks overshooting into atheism) while retaining Jewsus’ universalism, i.e., “liberal values.” John Gray has identified the problem, and it looks like this vestigial Christian universalism is also being discarded, with movements like Brexit and the latest polling for the upcoming Swedish elections.

    No crowing bro, just pointing out facts. That was a completely European affair – it was one of many continental European conflicts (prior to and after Christianity). Pagans loved scrapping with each other; the various tribes vying with each other over territory, the Romans versus all tribes, etc. They just found a new reason to fight. And you pointed out to how your ancestors thought Christianity was kind of gay and I simply pointed out that they kicked in pagan teeth on practically every front and basically all over the continent. So there’s kind of a cognitive dissonance there, exemplified in this meme:

    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/De3lQyiVMAAvSsR?format=jpg

    Look, I would have advocated setting up pagan millets and letting them pay jizyah under the dhimmah agreement, but Christians did their own thing.

    Luther was the North’s swift revenge for the Crusades. The Protestants printed the Jew Testament and thumped the Catholics into a minority.

    Very interesting take on Protestantism (never thought of it this way)…if i recall, Goethe considered Luther to be a kind of German prophet of sorts.

    Spanish how their Invincible Armada faired. Deus limp. Defeated by Nordic/Celtic/Anglo/Saxon berserkers

    Well, there go those Europeans again, fighting over something else – see my earlier point.

    Northern Europe has now discarded the stupid mysticism of Jewianity (with many folks overshooting into atheism)

    Post-Christian surely describes Europe well. Nietzsche had his finger on it, well before others recognized what was going on.

    Either with the end of Whitey

    Whitey ain’t going anywhere. Whitey will get out of this just fine, like he has gotten out of far, far worse dilemmas on his continent. God created Whitey, and God will preserve him inshAllah. Of this I have little doubt, but Whitey needs to turn to God again…I’ll bring this up later.

    The ride never ends.

    Once your relatives put your cold carcass into the ground to be devoured by worms or burn you into dust it ends as far as this plane is concerned.

    Look, I actually get some of your points (though they are kind of mixed in with a bunch of other off-the-wall stuff). Your major point seems to be; you believe Christianity is tied into Judaism and Bani Israel too closely at the hip. And that, due to that relationship, it (and its societies) is exploitable by Jews if they have nefarious designs. So far, so good?

    OK. Well, we actually do not believe the Semites have a monopoly on prophethood – this is actually a bone of contention we have with them since our guidance came through the branch of Ishmael (pbuh) which they basically disregard. We believe every nation had been sent prophets and warners by the Divine, so we have no problem with the idea that there were prophets sent among the Germans or Greeks or Picts, etc. In fact the default assumption is that they were sent messengers:
    “We assuredly sent amongst every nation (ummah) a messenger, (with the Command), ‘Serve God, and eschew evil’…” (16:36)

    “We have sent you with the truth, bringing good news and giving warning. There is no community to which a warner had not come.” (35:24)

    Now you may pooh pooh that narrative – which is fine, but our narrative is different than with the Jews and Christians in this regard.

    So…it seems you are post-Christian but believe in some sort of Deity or Higher Power. What religion or philosophy do you propose to replace Christianity and get your people out of trouble? Constantly attacking Christianity is basically beating a dead horse (since Christianity is already shedding numbers like crazy and the Christians you are dealing with are basically struggling – valiantly at times, I may add – against the tide):

    But that’s not offering a counter-solution. That article was awesome actually – thanks for posting it. So do you espouse a revamped version of Haekel’s “Monism” as the way forward? As the article stated, much of what Westerners assume to be natural moral values are leftovers from Christianity. So if the West has evolved past Christianity; what next? Who will be your “Moses” that leads your people to the promised land?

    When I look at depictions of John at the Last Supper, I see a young man overcome by several ritual cups of wine, to the probable amusement of older disciples, who themselves will be in an alcoholic stupor before long, leaving their Lord to go through some of the most terrifying moments of His life alone.

    I see Jesus finding room in His own dread for compassion on this young man, who will wake to find that the Master he has followed and has seen enter Jerusalem in triumph will be arrested, tried, and executed as a common criminal.

    John will see people he has been taught to respect all his life display cowardice, corruption (he knew people in the high priest’s house, and may have been a poor cousin), and malice. All the older, supposedly responsible disciples will run like rabbits, but John will stay to the end, when Jesus entrusts His own mother to his care.

    John is so devastated that when he is old, it’s said that he asks the community to fast and pray with him before he composes his Gospel. Despite his knowledge of the Resurrection, he knows that relating the events of those horrifying days will involve reliving them.

    Jesus knows that this tired lad, barely a man, will not desert him, but all those big tough disciples, ready with physical courage for a knife fight, lack the moral courage required to stand before a kangaroo court.

    That’s what I see when I look at such pictures.

    Talha: Very interesting take on Protestantism

    I read that Martin Luther and Protestantism was the Nordic revenge for the Catholic’s Northern Crusades in a good old book that spent quite some time arguing that premise. It’s on archive.org somewhere.

    Talha: Your major point seems to be; you believe Christianity is tied into Judaism and Bani Israel too closely at the hip.

    True. Christianity is Jew Worship. The Jew Testament was the modern Jewish Media of the day, just like CNN is now.

    Talha: Well, we actually do not believe the Semites have a monopoly on prophethood

    Smart move. Lucky for you.

    Talha: So…it seems you are post-Christian but believe in some sort of Deity or Higher Power.

    I’ve been told by two well-known theologians that I’m a Cultural-Christian, meaning I don’t believe the dogma, but I embrace the European Traditions, all of them pagan-originated, that have developed in spite of Christian dogma against most of those traditions. E.g., the Rabbi Jewsus would throw an ungodly hissy fit at the gift giving we enjoy in a few months at Solstice.

    Talha: But that’s not offering a counter-solution.

    I’m specifically NOT offering any counter-solution. The problem of inherent Jew-worship in Christianity has to first be recognized and acknowledged, and as you can see from comments here at Unz, Christians are in total denial about it. It’s very important to not offer solutions to those who refuse to recognize and acknowledge problems. An alcoholic must first recognize and acknowledge his alcoholism before he will consider and act on counter-solutions, because “padded consequences.”

    This is a very interesting point. It seems Christians adopted or co-opted a lot of pagan traditions into their religious practice (such as festivals, etc.) – like the timing of Easter or its association with obvious symbols of fertility, winter solstice, etc. There is definitely a massive advantage in doing something like this, but there is also a disadvantage – which you are pointing out. Islam avoided that (brilliantly, now that I think about it) by having all of its religious dates and festivals hooked to the lunar calendar, such that the dates move throughout one’s lifetime. So, when I was younger, Ramadan came during winter months, but now is in the summer months (likewise any celebrations like Eid). This avoids conflict (or syncretization) with many cultural leftovers which are almost always associated with the solar calendar or the seasons. The celebration of Nawrooz (the ancient spring-announcement festival of the Persianate lands) is still observed in places like Iran, Afghanistan, etc. The celebration remains, but it is not connected with anything Islamic in doctrine, thus remains a Persian cultural norm. Yennayer is a similar celebration among the Berber people since ancient times. I would assume the same thing will happen if the Chinese adopt Islam wholesale with the native Chinese celebrations. So the local guys celebrate their own culturally inherited festivals (Persians don’t care about Berber stuff and vice-versa), usually based on some ancient harvest or spring celebration and Islam is kept pure from it while Muslims around the world celebrate together, as Muslims, on the specific religious days.

    Please note: Hardcore Salafis vehemently disagree with what I just stated and would love to wipe all cultural-specific celebrations off the planet (including stuff like Thanksgiving – which I and my family are keen to celebrate as Americans).

    I’m specifically NOT offering any counter-solution.

    OK – I get that and now your approach makes more sense. However, I would like to point out to you that if you want “converts” to your side, you are going to have to offer them a serious alternative eventually to get anything off the ground. Otherwise you may simply be dismissed as a crank.

    Personal advice, try to engage with Christians a little bit more like you’ve been engaging with me. It’s been generally civil and respectful and I have thus been more open to thinking over your viewpoints – even if I don’t agree with them (any Muslim who says anything insulting about the Son of Mary [pbuh] – even though we disagree about him with Christians) just lost his card-carrying membership to Islam (and often in the past, his head).

    Half of the debate is in one’s presentation; wisdom in approach is key – especially if you are trying to win people over. Pissing them off starts you at a negative position from which you have to then catch up. If you just want to troll people, that’s a whole other issue, but why waste your time and fleeting life on some useless endeavor like that?

    If you sincerely believe what you have to offer is for the good of your Christian audience; then reflect on how you would approach a friend (like in your example) who was an alcoholic and who you wanted to help sincerely turn their life around…makes sense?

    Otherwise, for intractable foes (or those people who seem to harbor a personal animosity against me) the point is not to change their opinion; that is usually a lost cause, as Imam Ghazali (ra) pointed out. Rather, one uses the points of one’s opponent to either break down their argument or to get one’s own material out there (preferably with reliable sources and citations). The audience who may be sitting on the fence or have an open mind about the subject and merely observing is the key target. And, again, in that – one’s character and presentation is key. One can have the greatest lawyer in the world, but if he comes dressed to court in a Batman suit, well…
