Atheists, LGBTS, Pagans and Native Americans? Are More Christian than Christians are.

After a few discussions with some Christians? I have come to realize something. Atheists, LGBTS, Pagans, Native Americans and all others that Christians have either historically persecuted? Or still persecute to this day? Are actually? More Christian than those who DARE proclaim themselves Christians are.

The Basic Rules of being a follower of Jesus Christ and calling yourself a Christian

Generally? The basic rules of Christianity, even from those whom I debate and they say the Fake Christians are not the True Christians and a True Follower of Jesus acts this way, describe a True Christian this way.

Love above all else is the rule. If you do not love your neighbors which is all your fellow human being? Even those whom YOU consider your enemy? Then you cannot call yourself a True Christian. If Jesus loved all of us? And we say we are a True Christian? Then we must love everyone else no matter what, just as Jesus did for you.

You cannot spread hate, violence, anger in the name of Jesus. Jesus could have killed all the Romans and his enemies if he wanted to. He did not preach hate, but love. He did not preach war but peace. He did not practice punching his enemy in the face but he turned the other cheek. Even when he was dying on that cross for you? He forgave those who put him up on that cross. He got mad at the false teachers and even stated? Any true follower of his? Should do the same. There is nothing wrong with going after the money changers, the false prophets, the preachers and teachers of hate. If he went after them and even turned over their tables in the very Temple? Then so should all True Christians do this to all those they declare Fake Christians.

You cannot judge anyone. Jesus commanded that you were never to judge others, unless YOU were completely without sin and could cast the first stone. That you were to go correct your brothers and sisters in love when they were wrong, but you were never to judge them worthy of heaven or hell, because only your God and Jesus can judge you worthy of either heaven or hell. And even the bible says to never judge another, for as you judge another the same judgement shall be given to you. And the same measure you use to judge another? Shall be the same measure used to judge you. So take the massive mote out of your own eye Christians, before you attempt to take the tiny mote out of my eyes.

You must always TURN the other cheek and forgive your enemies or those who slap you in the face even. And not once, but as many times as you need to. Not only must you turn the other cheek? You must also pray for those who slap that cheek or those whom you consider your enemy. You must NEVER allow the sun to set with anger or hate in your heart against anyone. This is how all True Christians are always supposed to act for it is just like your own Lord and Savior acted. Even before you go to a church? If you are mad at any of your brothers and sisters? You must first go make your peace with them before you even go before the altar of the church.

How are Atheists, LGBTS, Native Americans, Pagans and others more Christian than most who DARE call themselves Christians?

Pagans have been turning the other cheek to Christians really since 335 AD when Christians made it a death penalty punishment to be a Pagan and started their Christian forced conversion persecution of Pagans.

I’ve met and known many Pagans of all different types through my years and I have read a whole lot of books from Pagan authors and at no time? Have I ever read in any Pagan literature where Pagans demand that Christians be put to death as witches and heretics lmfao.

Matter of fact? The biggest rule for most Pagans/Wiccans is? And it harm none? Do what thou will. That means harming not only other people? But even causing harm to yourself. And Christians can doubt this but? Even their “archenemy and scapegoat” the Satanists? Their rules are actually more moral and civil than the Christians. Their biggest rule above all else is also? Do what thou will but harm none.

Face it, some of the biggest persecutors of LGBTS are from the Abrahamic religions. In the areas where Christianity rules the roost? Their biggest persecutors are Christians. In Islamic regions? Guess what? It is the Muslims. Yes, it is a death penalty punishment in 14 Muslim countries to be an lgbt and they do put to brutal deaths lgbts. But guess what CHRISTIANS…YOU ARE ACTUALLY? NO BETTER.

There are many of those who call themselves Christians? Sitting in our prisons for brutally murdering lgbts all in the name of their Christianity. Many others who call themselves in prison calling themselves Christians who have beaten, tortured, raped, etc lgbts. Many for committing acts of arson and terrorism against lgbt establishments. And?

You got many Christian Pastors of Hate screaming like rabid dogs foaming at the mouth demanding brutal death penalty punishments against lgbts in the US and? Around the world. Hell, at least three of them? Are responsible for the persecutions of lgbts in Uganda, Nigeria, Russia and their satelite countries and many other places. In Uganda and Nigeria? Lgbts are put to brutal deaths by murder by those who are Christians who are riled up by the lies and evil they are told, all manufactured by these US Pastors of Hate.

We barely hear any Christians cry about these lgbts deaths or persecutions. But? We will hear a whole lot from Christians how lgbts should just shut the fuck up, go back in their closets and fucking die. Or how they are persecuting Christians by simply asking a baker to make them a wedding cake. These same hypocrite freaking bakers who have no problem making cakes for any adulterer who is equally and even more condemned in the bible? Than homosexuals are. Oh the fucking irony and hypocrisy huh?

But again? LGBTS keep turning their other cheek, as Christians try to rip that side off and demand that LGBTS keep turning their cheeks while Christians will cry if an LGBT tells them to just simply go fuck themselves. And what REALLY proves how LGBTS are more Christian than Christians are?

THEY DO NOT DEMAND THAT ANY CHRISTIAN BE PUT TO BRUTAL DEATHS, NOR HAVE ALL YOUR DAMN RIGHTS TAKEN AWAY AND PUT INTO NAZI STYLE CONCENTRATION CAMPS, OR DEMAND THE GOVERNMENT PUT YOU ALL TO DEATH NOW DO THEY?

But I hear Christian Pastors of Hate? Demanding this be done to them and all their psychotic, foaming at the mouth pew polishers shouting hearty amens and praise the lawds over this shit. And hey, you cannot tell them to stop their shit cause then? YOU ARE PERSECUTING CHRISTIANS!!!

And even funnier? LGBTS would just love? To be around you guys in your damn churches and gatherings not in hate? But in love.

And many of you? When you even find out your kid might be gay or lesbian? will throw those kids out onto the street and disown them. How the fuck do you call yourself a Christian over that when you do that to your own kid and hate them? Fuck you. Sure that might seems to be changing? But any fucking person who does this to a child? Has no fucking right to call themselves a parent in the first place, let alone be calling themselves a fucking human being.

But NOPE LGBTS are again? Proving by their turning the other cheek to Christians again and again? And even loving you guys? Whom they should in fact? Consider their enemies cause many of you really want to do them all manner of harm? And even wanting to join your damn churches? Well hey.

Again, Native Americans? Are more Christian than Christians. Christians did all they could to wipe us Native Americans off the face of the earth. They literally tried to commit what is known as extermination which is hugely different than just genocide. The Christians committed all kinds of warfare, from brutal slaughters to germ and other warfare. I could spend thousands of words describing all the things that Christians did to us Native Americans in North, Central and South America. But the plain and simple fact and truth is? Christians did in fact? Try to wipe us off the face of the earth.

And again? Do you see or hear Natives stating a complete and total rise up of ALL Red Nations and take it all back from you guys? Trust me, if we truly wanted to take it all back? WE COULD. One Native American Warrior? Is worth one hundred Christian warriors. And some? Are worth a thousand of them. But? WE just again? Want to be left in peace really. To be allowed to go back to our ways, to have you assholes leave what is left to us alone and stop trying to finish off polluting it, and destroying it, or destroying OUR Native cemetaries for your fucking golf courses, your fucking homes and your fucking football stadiums. I mean how the fuck would you guys like if if we Natives demanded all the graves at Arlington National Cemetary or the cemetaries where YOUR loved ones are buried and ripped up and a casino built upon them?

But nope, we Natives really wish you fucking Christians would actually leave us the hell alone. Yes, thank you to those Christians who are finally waking the fuck up and realizing what your Christians did to us, and thanks for the love. We do if you believe it? LOVE you all too.

Actually? I know MANY Red brothers and sisters? Who hold pow-wows and prayer sessions for you whites and Christians. Pretty freaking damn cool huh? So again? Native Americans? Turning the other cheek again, attempting to the best of our ability to love you Christians who consider us your enemies and want to continue to do us harm or insult, denigrate and defame us tell outrageous bullshit talking out of their asshole lies about us, or blame us for all the shit that was brought upon us by the “love, peace, non-judgment” of Christians on their fucking death camps Christians called reservations after their death marches to them

And here we go. Atheists. Yeah you Christians been forcing us to live in the fucking shadows for a very long time. You assholes been persecuting Atheists for so long? Well. But again? When I do say I want to see Christians reap what they have sown and see whole towns or whole churches of Christians brutally murdered or wiped out? NO, THAT IS IN FACT? MY PISSED OFF SATIRICAL SIDE THROWING THIS SHIT I HEAR FROM THESE SICK AND TWISTED OUTRAGEOUS CHRISTIAN PASTORS OF HATE AND DEATH BACK INTO ALL CHRISTIANS FACES CAUSE I AM FUCKING SICK AND TIRED OF HEARING IT FROM THOSE WHO CALL THEMSELVES CHRISTIANS, AND THEN WHEN I BITCH ABOUT IT? THOSE TRUE CHRISTIANS PLAY THEIR FUCKING GAMES OF NO TRUE SCOTSMAN LINE OF APOLOGETIC BULLSHIT AND OTHER BULLSHIT WHY THEY DO NOT HAVE THE FUCKING BALLS TO PUT A STOP TO THESE “FAKE CHRISTIANS” THEY KEEP CALLING THESE ASSHOLES THEMSELVES.

SO HOW THE FUCK IT IS AN ATHEIST IS PERSECUTING A CHRISTIAN? WHEN THEY THEMSELVES? DO NOT EVEN CALL THE PERSON A FUCKING CHRISTIAN THEMSELVES? OH THE HYPOCRISY AND IDIOCY OF CHRISTIANS LET ME FUCKING TELL YA LMFAO.

But honestly? This atheist? Would rather sit down with ya, smoke a big old bong, and either play cribbage or backgammon with ya, or watch some music videos or a movie, or go out and have some other fun. Not fucking fight with ya, not hate on ya, etc.

But honestly? We atheists? Could in fact? Be standing up to you guys in ways you would not believe. We are again? Turning the other cheek, trying to just live with you guys who actually? Do not even like us atheists in most polls and think we are lower than muslim terrorists and fucking pedophiles. I mean WTF.

So that makes us Atheists? Even more Christians than 99% of you who DARE call yourselves Christians. Just like Pagans, LGBTS, Native Americans and many others Christians love to persecute or have persecuted in their 1700 years of Christianity.

GET IT RIGHT, WE ARE NOT PERSECUTING CHRISTIANS

To start? This is NOT directed to all those True Christians out there who actualy practice and live their Lord and Saviors commandments. Especially? The second part of his greatest commandment and the bibles commands against hate, non-judgment, forgiving your enemies, treating all others as you would want them to treat you, and sowing good things.

I know there are a whole lot more of you True Christians out there than there are the ones who have hijacked your Christianity and preach and do everything opposite of what your Jesus ever commanded you to do. Yes, whether you believe it or not? We atheists? Have no problem with True Christians. We like you actually. You are really good and decent people. You do in fact? A lot to make the world a better place and do a whole lot helping others.

So PLEASE understand? This is against your Fake Christians ok? Again? I have no beef with you True Christian, I honestly and really do not. And yeah, I GET PISSED over THE FAKE CHRISTIANS I keep reporting on in this blog.

YES, I believe ANYONE who rapes a child? Should in fact? Get the death penalty. If we use that punishment? Then it should be for the most deserving of all scumbag criminals on our planet, those who harm innocent and basically defenseless infants, toddlers, children and teens. I do not care what you religion you claim to abide by, I do not care whether you are rich or poor, I do not care if you are a proclaimed saint or sinner. YOU harm a child? YOU should have your life taken from you. There should be absolutely NO MERCY to those who harm children.

Even still? It should be an automatic death penalty punishment if your victim? Is under the age of consent in the state they commit their crime in, and especially? If your victim is under the age of 10, or if you have more than one victim, or if your victim or victims? Are truly defenseless as in handicapped, like the deaf/mute children that were being brutally raped at the Antonio Provolo Institutes in Italy and Argentina.

But? This applies even more to those who DARE call themselves Christian priests or pastors, or Jewish rabbis, or Muslim clerics. They not only rape the bodies of their victims, they rape the mind, soul and heart too. This is even more evil in the scale of things if you actually listen and pay attention to the victims and survivors of this.

AGAIN, THIS IS NOT DEMANDING ANY HARM TO ANY TRUE CHRISTIAN, THIS IS AGAINST THOSE FAKE CHRISTIANS WHO HAVE NO RIGHT TO CALL THEMSELVES CHRISTIANS IN THE FIRST PLACE. AND THEY ARE NOT CHRISTIANS IN ANY SENSE OF THE MEANING.

And PLEASE UNDERSTAND, I find ALL pedophile and rape crimes EVIL. The harm done to the victims is uncalculable.

What I am saying here is? Again? These religious people who do these things? Should in fact? Pay the ultimate price with a death penalty punishment, given to them under a legal system with a court of law, a judge and jury to make that decision. NO PEDOPHILE especially? Should EVER get a slap on the wrist, but at the very least? ALL Pedophile justly convicted in a court of law? Should receive LIFE IN PRISON WITHOUT PAROLE TO NEVER BE RELEASED UPON SOCIETY AGAIN.

NOT 15 YEARS FOR BRUTALLY RAPING A 9 YEAR OLD GIRL ON HER FATHERS GRAVE, OR 5 YEARS FOR RAPING DEAF/MUTE CHILDREN, OR EVEN? NO TIME AT ALL. EITHER BECAUSE THEY HID BEHIND THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS TO GET AWAY WITH THEIR CRIMES, OR THEY WERE CONSIDERED TOO OLD, TOO FRAIL ETC TO BE SENT TO PRISON, OR THEY “REPENTED” ENOUGH NOT TO BE. PEDOPHILES? ARE THE DISGUSTING PART OF OUR HUMAN SOCIETY? WHOM NEVER CHANGES. THEY NEVER STOP AND THE ONLY WAY TO PROTECT SOCIETY FROM THE HARM THEY CAUSE? IS EITHER PUT THEM TO DEATH IN OUR PRISONS, OR LOCK THEM UP AND THROW AWAY THE KEY AND NEVER ALLOW THEM TO WALK OUR STREETS EVER AGAIN.

AND YES, THERE SHOULD BE A DISTINCTION WITH AN 18 YR OLD BOY BEING WITH HIS GIRLFRIEND IF SHE IS 17, OR EVEN 16. THAT IS NOT PEDOPHILE CRIMES NOR ANY KIND OF APPLICABLE CRIME. I AM TALKING ABOUT ADULTS, ESPECIALLY THOSE “RELIGIOUS” ADULTS WHO DO THIS.

MY WORDS ARE NOT HATE AGAINST TRUE CHRISTIAN, NO TRUE CHRISTIAN I KNOW? WOULD EVER DO THIS TO A CHILD, NO TRUE CHRISTIAN I KNOW? WOULD EVER ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN TO A CHILD. NO TRUE CHRISTIAN I KNOW? WOULD EVER STAND UP AND DEFEND THESE SCUMBAGS WHO DO THIS TO YOUR OWN CHILDREN. YOU KNOW THIS IS GOING ON AND MANY OF YOU? ARE DOING ALL YOU CAN TO MAKE SURE THIS STOPS. BUT THERE ARE STILL MANY OF THESE SCUMBAGS IN YOUR CHURCHES WHO ARE DOING THIS AND THEY MUST BE FOUND AND REMOVED AT ALL COSTS. I APPRECIATE AND SO DO MANY OTHERS, THE PROGRESS YOU TRUE CHRISTIANS HAVE DONE IN DEALING WITH THIS, BUT MUCH MORE MUST BE DONE.

I SAY THIS AGAINST YOUR FAKE CHRISTIANS, THOSE WHO INVADED YOUR CHURCHES, PROCLAIMING THEMSELVES PRIESTS AND PASTORS OF YOUR GOD, A FOLLOWER OF YOUR JESUS AND A TEACHER OF YOU ALL, WHILE THEY RAPED, AND TORTURED, AND BRUTALIZED YOUR CHILDREN YOU ENTRUSTED THEM TO. I AM TALKING ABOUT THE SCUMBAGS WHO HAVE CAUSE SO MUCH HARM TO YOUR CHILDREN. I AM SPEAKING FOR THOSE VOICES IN THE GRAVE, REFUSING TO ALLOW THEM TO REMAIN SILENT, THOSE VICTIMS WHO TOOK THEIR LIVES OVER THIS. AND I AM SPEAKING FOR EACH AND EVERY VICTIM AND SURVIVOR WHO WAS DENIED JUSTICE, ATTACKED BY ANYONE FOR THE CRIMES COMMITTED AGAINST THEM, INSULTED OR DENIGRATED OR DEFAMED ON THIS.

I’M TALKING ABOUT THE LEADERS, THE SCUMBAGS OF ALL YOUR DENOMINATIONS, WHO CARED MORE ABOUT THE REPUTATION OF THEIR VARIOUS CHURCHES AND ORGANIZATIONS THAN THEY DID ABOUT HELPING PUT A STOP TO THIS, AND PROTECTING AND DEFENDING THE VICTIMS AND SURVIVORS. AND I AM TALKING ABOUT THE LEADERS WHO MOVED THESE DANGEROUS AND DAMAGING PEDOPHILE FAKE CHRISTIAN PRIESTS AND PASTORS AROUND LIKE KIDS IN A CANDY STORE AND HID THE FACTS OF WHAT THEY WERE DOING AND MORE OF YOUR CHILDREN GOT RAPED AND BRUTALIZED BECAUSE OF IT.

THESE ARE THE PEOPLE, AS WELL AS THE ONES? WHO USE YOUR CHRISTIANITY TO SPREAD HATE AND DEATH, BIGOTRY AND MISOGYNY AND PATHOLOGICAL LIES AGAINST OTHERS. WHO THEN PROCLAIM HOW ALL CHRISTIANS ARE UNDER ATTACK. NO, GET THIS RIGHT. WE AGAIN? HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH TRUE CHRISTIANS. WE ARE NOT ATTACKING YOU. WE ACTUALLY? LOVE YA DAMMIT. WE ARE ATTACKING YOUR FAKE CHRISTIANS WHO SPREAD FAKE CHRISTIANITY IN THE NAME OF YOUR GOD, THE NAME OF YOUR JESUS THE NAME OF YOUR BIBLE AND THE NAME OF CHRISTIANITY.

THESE PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT CHRISTIANS, NOT TRUE CHRISTIANS, MUST BE STOOD UP TO JUST LIKE THOSE MUSLIM TALIBANS, OR ANY OTHER FASCIST RELIGIOUS PEOPLE SEEKING TO HARM OTHERS, DUE TO THEIR PSYCHOTIC INTERPRETATIONS OF YOUR BIBLE, AND THEN USE THAT TO HARM OTHERS.

TRUE CHRISTIANS? DO NOT HARM OTHERS, THEREFORE? WE HAVE NO REASON TO STAND UP OR DO ANYTHING TO YOU TRUE CHRISTIANS, GET THAT THROUGH YOUR THICK SKULLS. THERE IS NO WAR ON CHRISTIANS, THERE IS NO WAR AGAINST YOUR RELIGION, THERE ARE JUST PEOPLE WHO ARE SICK AND DAMN TIRED OF YOUR HATEFUL ASSHOLE FAKE CHRISTIANS AND THOSE ARE THE ONES WE ARE STANDING UP TO. AND WE HAVE EVERY DAMN RIGHT TO DO SO AND YES, USE YOUR VERY BIBLE AND THE WORDS OF THAT? TO SHOVE BACK INTO THEIR FACES AND DEMAND? AS THEY SOW? SO SHOULD THEY REAP AND AS THEY WANT TO DO TO THOSE THEY SPREAD HATE AND DEATH AGAINST? THEY SHOULD HAVE THE SAME DONE UNTO THEM.

THIS IS NOT PERSECUTING THEM FOR BEING CHRISTIANS EITHER, THEY HAVE FAR PROVEN? THEY ARE NOT CHRISTIANS. SO HOW CAN WE BE PERSECUTING CHRISTIANS, IF THE PEOPLE WE ARE STANDING UP TO? ARE NOT CHRISTIANS IN THE FIRST PLACE??? EVEN YOU TRUE CHRISTIANS AGREE? THESE ARE NOT CHRISTIANS, SO EVEN YOU AGREE WE ARE NOT PERSECUTING YOU CHRISTIANS. SO STOP ACTING LIKE WE ATHEISTS, OR LGBTS, OR PAGANS OR NATIVE AMERICANS, OR OTHERS, THESE SCUMBAG HATEFUL FAKE CHRISTIANS DO PERSECUTE WHEN WE STAND UP TO THEM.

ONE MORE TIME, TO ALL YOU TRUE CHRISTIANS, GET IT THROUGH YOUR THICK SKULLS. I KNOW MANY ATHEISTS, MANY LGBTS, MANY PAGANS, MANY NATIVE AMERICANS, WHO LOVE YA. WE APPRECIATE YOU GOOD AND TRUE CHRISTIANS. WE HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEMS WITH YOU. YOU ARE IN FACT? DAMN GREAT HUMANS. YOU LIVE BY LOVE, THAT IS FUCKING AWESOME AND BEAUTIFUL THING TO BRING TO A WORLD FILLED WITH HATE AND ANGER AND WAR AND ALL KINDS OF EVIL. WE NEED MORE PEOPLE LIKE YOU.

WE WANT TO STOP AND GET RID OF ALL YOUR FAKE CHRISTIANS, NOT YOU. WE WANT TO STOP THOSE WHO USE YOUR BEAUTIFUL TEACHINGS OF LOVING OTHERS, HELPING OTHERS, ETC FROM CAUSING HATE AND HARM TO OTHERS.

UNDERSTAND THAT PLEASE. AND? HELP US PUT A STOP TO THIS SHIT PLEASE!!!!

Do Not Use Your Rock to Cause Harm to Others

I am an atheist, but? I am also? A Humanist. I want to share what I use as an analogy for beliefs in a god and following a religion and non belief in a god and not a follower of a religion. This is not attempting to insult believers, but I believe it is a great analogy to use.

I use the analogy that all religions and religious beliefs to a rock. YOU want to worship a rock (ie god and no I am not trying to be insulting on this to you) then fine. Worship your rock. Love your rock, live by the rules of your rock. But? Do not take your rock? And smash someones face in with you rock because that person does not believe in your rock, believes in a different rock than you do, or no rock at all. Do not use your rock to harm any other human being.

Those of whom you use your rock to harm? Have every right to defend themselves against you using your rock to cause them harm. Just like you have a right to defend yourselves against someone who is TRULY using their rock to cause you harm. What I mean by this is? You cannot hypocritically claim that someone is truly using their rock to harm you? If you are in fact? Using your rock to persecute them first. Then claim because they are standing up to you? They are then using their rocks to cause you harm.

History has shown? People have used their rocks to cause other people great harm. This? Has to stop. Especially when the rock believer? Tells us their rock is based on love, peace, non-judgment etc. Live your rock, yes, live the teachings of your rock on love, peace, non-judgment, etc, because who knows? If you truly live the teachings of love of your rock? You might change the world and make it a much more beautiful place to live, which we all desperately need right now with all the shit that is going on in the world right now.

People who have their rocks? Have to stop using their rocks to cause harm to their fellow human beings.

This? Is what the essence of being a Humanist is all about. Loving all people, no matter what rock they believe in, or not believe in. I do try, but some of you rock believers? Make it damn hard to do so.

The Apostles who went on the First Crusade — FromRome.Info

The Apostles who went on the First Crusade — FromRome.Info

This assclown Roman Catholic says that what his fellow Roman Catholic butchers did during their First Crusade? Was their military forces for a work of mercy, to restore the order of justice, the rights of the Christian faith, the mercy to persecuted Christians.

THIS ASSCLOWN ROMAN CATHOLIC PRAISES HIS HISTORICAL ROMAN CATHOLICS AND THEIR MASS SLAUGHTER, THEIR CANNIBALISATION OF PEOPLE, THEIR BUTCHERY OF WOMEN AND CHILDREN.

REALLY? APARENTLY THIS ASSHOLE CHRISTOFASCIST TALBAN CATHOLIC? APPROVES OF BUTCHERY AND MURDER AND CANNIBALISM HUH?

NOW? LET’S TAKE A REAL LOOK AT WHAT THESE SCUMBAG CHRISTOSHITSTAINS ON THE UNDERWEAR OF HUMANITY ACTUALLY DID IN THEIR BRUTAL BUTCHERY OF THEIR CRUSADES TO JERUSALEM SHALL WE?

The Siege of Jerusalem took place from June 7 to July 15, 1099, during the First Crusade. The climax of the First Crusade, the successful siege saw the Crusaders take Jerusalem from the Fatimid Caliphate and laid the foundations for the Kingdom of Jerusalem.

The siege is notable for the mass slaughter of Muslims and Jews perpetrated by the Christian crusaders, which contemporaneous sources suggest was savage and widespread

On 7 June, the crusaders reached Jerusalem, which had been recaptured from the Seljuqs by the Fatimids only the year before. Many Crusaders wept upon seeing the city they had journeyed so long to reach.[13] As with Antioch, the Crusaders put the city to a siege, in which the crusaders themselves probably suffered more than the citizens of the city, due to the lack of food and water around Jerusalem. The city was well-prepared for the siege, and the Fatimid governor Iftikhar ad-Daula had expelled most of the Christians. Of the estimated 5,000 knights who took part in the Princes’ Crusade, only about 1,500 remained, along with another 12,000 healthy foot-soldiers (out of perhaps as many as 30,000). Early in the siege, some low-class knights claimed to have been visited by Adhemar, the papal legate for the crusade, who recently died of typhus after the Siege of Antioch. They claimed that this would be similar to the Battle of Jericho, and that he instructed them to march around the city walls barefoot. They did so for a few days, singing holy chants. After this Peter the Hermit held religious sermons in the Valley of Jehoshaphat, in the Garden of Gethsemane, and on the Mount of Olives, sending the crusading knights lost into religious zeal. It was at this time that they were ready for a siege. Godfrey, Robert of Flanders, and Robert of Normandy (who had now also left Raymond to join Godfrey) besieged the north walls as far south as the Tower of David, while Raymond set up his camp on the western side, from the Tower of David to Mount Zion. A direct assault on the walls on June 13 was a failure. Without water or food, both men and animals were quickly dying of thirst and starvation and the crusaders knew time was not on their side. Coincidentally, soon after the first assault, two Genoese galleys[14] sailed into the port at Jaffa. The Crusaders also began to gather wood from Samaria in order to build siege engines. They were still short on food and water, and by the end of June there was news that a Fatimid army was marching north from Egypt.

Massacre

Atrocities committed against the inhabitants of cities taken by storm after a siege were normal in ancient and medieval warfare by both Christians and Muslims. The Crusaders had already done so at Antioch, and Fatimids had done so themselves at Taormina, at Rometta, and at Tyre. However, the massacre of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, both Muslims and Jews, may have exceeded even these standards. Historian Michael Hull has suggested this was a matter of deliberate policy rather than simple bloodlust, to remove the “contamination of pagan superstition” (quoting Fulcher of Chartres) and to reform Jerusalem as a strictly Christian city.

The Archbishop of Tyre, eye-witness, wrote: “It was impossible to look upon the vast numbers of the slain without horror; everywhere lay fragments of human bodies, and the very ground was covered with the blood of the slain. It was not alone the spectacle of headless bodies and mutilated limbs strewn in all directions that roused the horror of all who looked upon them. Still more dreadful was it to gaze upon the victors themselves, dripping with blood from head to foot, an ominous sight which brought terror to all who met them. It is reported that within the Temple enclosure alone about ten thousand infidels perished.”

Christian chronicler Eckehard of Aura noted that “even the following summer in all of palestine the air was polluted by the stench of decomposition”. One million victims of the first crusade alone.

Jerusalem conquered 7/15/1099 more than 60,000 victims (jewish, muslim, men, women, children).

(In the words of one witness: “there [in front of Solomon’s temple] was such a carnage that our people were wading ankle-deep in the blood of our foes”, and after that “happily and crying for joy our people marched to our Saviour’s tomb, to honour it and to pay off our debt of gratitude”)

Here the Christians “did no other harm to the women found in [the enemy’s] tents—save that they ran their lances through their bellies,” according to Christian chronicler Fulcher of Chartres.

Marra (Maraat an-numan) 12/11/98 thousands killed. Because of the subsequent famine “the already stinking corpses of the enemies were eaten by the Christians” said chronicler Albert Aquensis.

Christians Committing Mass Murder: Against the Pagans

We know how much Christians love to proclaim how theirs is a religion of peace, love, non-judgment, etc. But their history proves they are anything but. Here is a definitive timeline history of Christians and their committing mass murder and persecution of Pagans.

Christian Atrocities: Three Centuries Of Pagan Persecution by ChristoTalibans

314 Immediately after its full legalisation, the Christian Church attacks the gentiles (non-Christians). The Council of Ancyra denounces the worship of Goddess Artemis.

324 The emperor Constantine declares Christianity as the only official religion of the Roman empire. In Dydima, Minor Asia, he sacks the Oracle of the god Apollo and tortures the Pagan priests to death. He also evicts all non-Christian peoples from Mount Athos and destroys all the local Hellenic temples.

326 Constantine, following the instructions of his mother Helen, destroys the temple of the god Asclepius in Aigeai Cilicia and many temples of the goddess Aphrodite in Jerusalem, Aphaca, Mambre, Phoenicia, Baalbek, etc.

330 Constantine steals the treasures and statues of the Pagan temples of Greece to decorate Nova Roma (Constantinople), the new capital of his Empire.

335 Constantine sacks many Pagan temples of Minor Asia and Palestine and orders the execution by crucifixion of “all magicians and soothsayers”. Martyrdom of the neoplatonist philosopher Sopatrus.

341 Flavius Julius Constantius persecutes “all the soothsayers and the Hellenists”. Many gentile Hellenes are either imprisoned or executed.

346 New large scale persecutions against non-Christian peoples in Constantinople. Banishment of the famous orator Libanius accused as a “magician”.

353 An edict of Constantius orders the death penalty for all kind of worship through sacrifices and “idols”.

354 A new edict of Constantius orders the closing of all Pagan Temples. Some of them are profaned and turned into brothels or gambling rooms. Executions of Pagan priests. First burning of libraries in various cities of the Empire. The first lime factories are built next to closed Pagan Temples. A large part of Sacred Gentile architecture is turned into lime.

356 A new edict of Constantius orders the destruction of the Pagan Temples and the execution of all “idolaters”.

357 Constantius outlaws all methods of Divination (Astrology not excluded).

359 In Skythopolis, Syria, the Christians organise the first death camps for the torture and executions of the arrested non-Christians from all around the empire.

361 to 363 Religious tolerance and restoration of the Pagan cults declared in Constantinople (11th December 361) by the Pagan emperor Flavius Claudius Julianus.

363 Assassination of Emperor Julianus (26th June).

364 Emperor Flavius Jovianus orders the burning of the Library of Antioch. An Imperial edict (11th September) orders the death penalty for all Gentiles that worship their ancestral Gods or practice Divination (“sileat omnibus perpetuo divinandi uriositas”). Three different edicts (4th February, 9th September, 23rd December) order the confiscation of all properties of Pagan Temples and the death penalty for participation in Pagan rituals, even private ones.

365 An Imperial edict (17th November) forbids the gentile (Pagan) officers of the army to command Christian soldiers.

370 Valens orders a tremendous persecution of non-Christian peoples in all the Eastern Empire. In Antioch, among many other non-Christians, the ex-governor Fidustius and the priests Hilarius and Patricius are executed. Tons of books are burnt in the squares of the cities of the Eastern Empire. All the friends of Julianus are persecuted (Orebasius, Sallustius, Pegasius etc.), the philosopher Simonides is burned alive and the philosopher Maximus is decapitated.

372 Valens orders the governor of Minor Asia to exterminate all the Hellenes and all documents of their wisdom.

373 New prohibition of all divination methods. The term “Pagan” (pagani, villagers, equivalent to the modern insult, “peasants”) is introduced by the Christians to demean non-believers.

375 The temple of god Asclepius in Epidaurus, Greece, is closed down by the Christians.

380 On 27th February, Christianity becomes the exclusive religion of the Roman Empire by an edict of Emperor Flavius Theodosius, requiring that “all the various nations, which are subject to our clemency and moderation should continue in the profession of that religion, which was delivered to the Romans by the divine Apostle Peter”. Non-christians are called “loathsome, heretics, stupid and blind”. In another edict Theodosius calls “insane” those that do not believe in the christian god and outlaws all disagreements with the Church dogmas. Ambrosius, bishop of Milan, starts destroying all the Pagan Temples of his area. Christian priests lead the mob against the Temple of Goddess Demeter in Eleusis and try to lynch the hierophants Nestorius and Priskus. The 95 year-old hierophant Nestorius, ends the Eleusinian Mysteries and announces the predominance of mental darkness over the human race.

381 On 2nd May, Theodosius deprives of all their rights the Christians that return back to the Pagan religion. In all the Eastern Empire the Pagan temples and Libraries are looted or burned down. On 21st December, Theodosius outlaws even simple visits to the temples of the Hellenes. In Constantinople, the temple of goddess Aphrodite is turned to a brothel and the temples of Sun and Artemis to stables.

382 “Hellelujah” (“Glory to Yahweh”) is imposed in the Christian mass.

384 Theodosius orders the Praetorian Prefect Maternus Cynegius, a dedicated Christian, to cooperate with the local bishops and destroy the temples of the Pagans in Northern Greece and Minor Asia.

385 to 388 Maternus Cynegius, encouraged by his fanatic wife, and bishop “Saint” Marcellus with his gangs scour the countryside and sack and destroy hundreds of Hellenic temples, shrines and altars. Among others they destroy the temple of Edessa, the Cabeireion of Imbros, the temple of Zeus in Apamea, the temple of Apollo in Dydima and all the temples of Palmyra.

389 to 390 All non-Christian date-methods are outlawed. Hordes of fanatic hermits from the desert flood the cities of the Middle East and Egypt and destroy statues, altars, libraries and Pagan temples, and lynch the Pagans.

The Christian mob profanes the cult images.

391 On 24th February, a new edict of Theodosius prohibits not only visits to pagan temples but also looking at the vandalised statues. New heavy persecutions occur all around the empire. In Alexandria, Egypt, pagans, led by the philosopher Olympius, revolt and after some street fights they lock themselves inside the fortified temple of the god Serapis (the Serapeion).

https://shadowtolight.wordpress.com/2019/11/04/what-do-mass-shooters-believe/

This ChristoTaliban liar and their group of scumbag Cocksuckers for ChristoTalibans proclaim how all these people are atheists. Which is a bald faced lie of course.

And then? This ChristoCocksucker for Christ seems to forget all the evil slaughters his fellow Christians have done.Including Christians committing the three worst cases of mass genocide and extermination in recorded human history, against us Native Americans, and next up were the Pagans and last, but not least? Christians have slaughtered Jews, Witches, Heretics and many others.

THE ONLY GOOD CHRISTIANS LIKE THIS ONE AND HIS GROUP OF LYING ASSED CHRISTOTALIBAN FASCIST PIG FUCKERS FOR JESUS? ARE ONES ROTTING IN THEIR FUCKING GRAVES AFTER HAVING DONE UNTO THEM AS THEY DO UNTO OTHERS

Let’s see who the real murderers are shall we?

Panama Sect Tortures and Kills Indigenous People So They’ll Repent Their Sins

Police freed 14 local indigenous people from a ranch in a remote part of Bocas del Toro, Panama, where they were being held prisoner by an evangelical Christian sect that wanted to force them, by any means necessary, to repent of their sins.

The police became involved after three prisoners managed to escape. They alerted authorities to the ongoing situation after reaching a nearby hospital.

A raid on the facility, which belonged to the local New Light of God Church, revealed a ghastly scene. Survivors, including two pregnant women and some children, had been bound and tortured, beaten with Bibles and wooden cudgels, cut with machetes, and burned in an attempt at exorcism and conversion that had lasted nearly a week at the time of the police raid.

Seven more people did not survive the ordeal. Five of them were children. Their pregnant mother was also killed. The remaining murder victim was a seventeen-year-old neighbor. Their corpses were found in a freshly-dug grave not far from the ranch.

One of the ten men arrested in the killings was the murdered children’s grandfather.

Local prosecutor Rafael Bayoles says that murder was on the agenda for the remaining prisoners, too, if they failed to convince the church of their repentance.

They were performing a ritual inside the structure. In that ritual, there were people being held against their will, being mistreated. All of these rites were aimed at killing them if they did not repent their sins… One of [the leaders] said God had given him a message. That message apparently boiled down to making everyone repent or die.

Ten lay preachers — one of whom is a minor — have been arrested, but as yet very little is known about New Light of God: which denomination it might be affiliated with, what beliefs they embraced, and how they operated prior to the events of the week preceding the raid. A well-established local church with a similar name, Luz del Mundo, currently appears to have no ties to the group.

The ten men who rounded up families to convert and the twenty-four people they tortured are all part of Panama’s largest indigenous community, the Ngabé-Buglé, a semi-autonomous region heavily affected by poverty. The area is so remote, injured parties had to be airlifted to hospital by helicopter — which makes the escapees role in the rescue operation all the more remarkable.

The scriptural justification the preachers used to back up their actions as biblical is unclear, but it shouldn’t take a holy book to recognize this as horrific.

Nothing Says Christian Love Quite Like Christian Hate: The Sand Creek Massacre

The Methodist preacher turned Civil War hero is still raw after spending years fighting Confederate flag-waving soldiers and treaty-waving Indians. He’s tasted blood, and now he’s on the warpath. With hundreds of unsuspecting American Indians just around the corner, he’s found his perfect opportunity.

He stands to address his men, knowing full well that the Arapaho and Southern Cheyenne pose no threat.

“Damn any man who sympathizes with Indians!” he says. “I have come to kill Indians, and believe it is right and honorable to use any means under God’s heaven to kill Indians.”

And then, for emphasis: “Kill and scalp all, big and little.”

He does just that. It’s a violent affair from the start.

As the chaos begins, the American Indians raise American and white flags — symbols of peace. But Chivington ignores the plea, instead raising his arm for attack.

Cannon and rifle fire rain down upon the village. Indians scatter. The hysterical militiamen charge, chasing down men, women, and children, killing them cruelly and without mercy.

The unrelenting attack lasts most of the day. The militia uses more than 1 ton of ammunition.

But once the shooting ends, the bloodshed doesn’t cease. Chivington wants victory, not prisoners. So, as the smoke clears, his militia slaughters the wounded. They scalp the dead, mutilating women, children, and infants. They cut off the women’s breasts and cut out their vaginas. They stripped the skin off the children’s backs to cure as leather. They cut off the men’s and boy’s scrotum’s to use as tobacco pouches and to wear as trophies around their necks. They ransack the village, taking supplies and livestock. Whatever is left, they destroy and burn.

In all, Chivington’s men scalp, rape, and murder hundreds of Southern Cheyenne and Arapaho people. Meanwhile, the militia loses fewer than 10 men, mostly due to friendly fire and sloppiness.

According to Congressional testimony in 1865 by John S. Smith, an American interpreter present at the time of the attack, the carnage was ghastly.

“I saw the bodies of those lying there cut all to pieces, worse mutilated than any I ever saw before; the women cut all to pieces … . With knives; scalped; their brains knocked out; children two or three months old; all ages lying there, from sucking infants up to warriors … .
By whom were they mutilated? By the United States troops who called ourselves Christians.”

Over the following weeks, Chivington and his men were lauded in the Denver press by the editor of the Rocky Mountain News, William Byers, who wrote in December, “Among the brilliant feats of arms in Indian warfare, the recent campaign of our Colorado volunteers will stand in history with few rivals,” and that they had carried out a “thousand incidents of individual daring” and “once again covered themselves with glory.” Chivington led the victory parade of the now named Bloody Third Regiment into Denver to a hero’s welcome.

Indian agent Sam Colley, outraged by the massacre at Sand Creek, wrote to U.S. Senator James R. Doolittle of Wisconsin, who was a member of the Joint Congressional Committee on the Conduct of the (Civil) War. Colley informed Doolittle that the Indians who had been attacked were peaceful and under the protection of his Indian agency and Fort Lyon. News of the massacre continued to spread and on January 10, 1865, the U.S. House of Representatives directed the Committee on the Conduct of the War to hold hearings to try to establish what took place at Sand Creek.

On March 13 1865, the Committee on the Conduct of the War began congressional hearings in Washington D.C. regarding the events which had occurred at Sand Creek. Indian agent John Smith gave his eye witness testimony as to the atrocities he had witnessed carried out by Chivington’s men. Smith told how he had witnessed around 100 Indians, men, women and children, surrounded by soldiers who fired on them indiscriminately. Smith testified that he witnessed Indians killed from “sucking infants up to warriors…women cut all to pieces, worse mutilated” than he had ever seen before, with “their brains knocked out.”

Christian Atrocities: Three Centuries Of Pagan Persecution by ChristoTalibans

314 Immediately after its full legalisation, the Christian Church attacks the gentiles (non-Christians). The Council of Ancyra denounces the worship of Goddess Artemis.

324 The emperor Constantine declares Christianity as the only official religion of the Roman empire. In Dydima, Minor Asia, he sacks the Oracle of the god Apollo and tortures the Pagan priests to death. He also evicts all non-Christian peoples from Mount Athos and destroys all the local Hellenic temples.

326 Constantine, following the instructions of his mother Helen, destroys the temple of the god Asclepius in Aigeai Cilicia and many temples of the goddess Aphrodite in Jerusalem, Aphaca, Mambre, Phoenicia, Baalbek, etc.

330 Constantine steals the treasures and statues of the Pagan temples of Greece to decorate Nova Roma (Constantinople), the new capital of his Empire.

335 Constantine sacks many Pagan temples of Minor Asia and Palestine and orders the execution by crucifixion of “all magicians and soothsayers”. Martyrdom of the neoplatonist philosopher Sopatrus.

341 Flavius Julius Constantius persecutes “all the soothsayers and the Hellenists”. Many gentile Hellenes are either imprisoned or executed.

346 New large scale persecutions against non-Christian peoples in Constantinople. Banishment of the famous orator Libanius accused as a “magician”.

353 An edict of Constantius orders the death penalty for all kind of worship through sacrifices and “idols”.

354 A new edict of Constantius orders the closing of all Pagan Temples. Some of them are profaned and turned into brothels or gambling rooms. Executions of Pagan priests. First burning of libraries in various cities of the Empire. The first lime factories are built next to closed Pagan Temples. A large part of Sacred Gentile architecture is turned into lime.

356 A new edict of Constantius orders the destruction of the Pagan Temples and the execution of all “idolaters”.

357 Constantius outlaws all methods of Divination (Astrology not excluded).

363 Assassination of Emperor Julianus (26th June).

364 Emperor Flavius Jovianus orders the burning of the Library of Antioch. An Imperial edict (11th September) orders the death penalty for all Gentiles that worship their ancestral Gods or practice Divination (“sileat omnibus perpetuo divinandi uriositas”). Three different edicts (4th February, 9th September, 23rd December) order the confiscation of all properties of Pagan Temples and the death penalty for participation in Pagan rituals, even private ones.

365 An Imperial edict (17th November) forbids the gentile (Pagan) officers of the army to command Christian soldiers.

370 Valens orders a tremendous persecution of non-Christian peoples in all the Eastern Empire. In Antioch, among many other non-Christians, the ex-governor Fidustius and the priests Hilarius and Patricius are executed. Tons of books are burnt in the squares of the cities of the Eastern Empire. All the friends of Julianus are persecuted (Orebasius, Sallustius, Pegasius etc.), the philosopher Simonides is burned alive and the philosopher Maximus is decapitated.

372 Valens orders the governor of Minor Asia to exterminate all the Hellenes and all documents of their wisdom.

373 New prohibition of all divination methods. The term “Pagan” (pagani, villagers, equivalent to the modern insult, “peasants”) is introduced by the Christians to demean non-believers.

375 The temple of god Asclepius in Epidaurus, Greece, is closed down by the Christians.

380 On 27th February, Christianity becomes the exclusive religion of the Roman Empire by an edict of Emperor Flavius Theodosius, requiring that “all the various nations, which are subject to our clemency and moderation should continue in the profession of that religion, which was delivered to the Romans by the divine Apostle Peter”. Non-christians are called “loathsome, heretics, stupid and blind”. In another edict Theodosius calls “insane” those that do not believe in the christian god and outlaws all disagreements with the Church dogmas. Ambrosius, bishop of Milan, starts destroying all the Pagan Temples of his area. Christian priests lead the mob against the Temple of Goddess Demeter in Eleusis and try to lynch the hierophants Nestorius and Priskus. The 95 year-old hierophant Nestorius, ends the Eleusinian Mysteries and announces the predominance of mental darkness over the human race.

381 On 2nd May, Theodosius deprives of all their rights the Christians that return back to the Pagan religion. In all the Eastern Empire the Pagan temples and Libraries are looted or burned down. On 21st December, Theodosius outlaws even simple visits to the temples of the Hellenes. In Constantinople, the temple of goddess Aphrodite is turned to a brothel and the temples of Sun and Artemis to stables.

382 “Hellelujah” (“Glory to Yahweh”) is imposed in the Christian mass.

384 Theodosius orders the Praetorian Prefect Maternus Cynegius, a dedicated Christian, to cooperate with the local bishops and destroy the temples of the Pagans in Northern Greece and Minor Asia.

385 to 388 Maternus Cynegius, encouraged by his fanatic wife, and bishop “Saint” Marcellus with his gangs scour the countryside and sack and destroy hundreds of Hellenic temples, shrines and altars. Among others they destroy the temple of Edessa, the Cabeireion of Imbros, the temple of Zeus in Apamea, the temple of Apollo in Dydima and all the temples of Palmyra.

Shadow To Light

The following is a guest post from reader, Isaac

Within a week’s time in 2019, three mass shootings occurred: in El Paso, Texas, Dayton, Ohio, and Gilroy, California. In most media coverage, two of the killers were described as white nationalists, while the third shooter’s Leftist politics and hatred of religion were mostly downplayed.

The entire reasoning behind ascribing a racist motive to the Gilroy shooter was that he had praised the book Might Is Right on Instagram. While the book does contain racist and sexist content, it’s not a book about race. It’s a philosophical screed against religion and the Bible, written in the style of Friedrich Nietzsche. In fact, Might is Right is the book Anton LaVey copied (without giving credit, of course) for his 1969 work of plagiarism, The Satanic Bible.

That means two of those three mass shooters were anti-religious nihilists. Most Americans, by…

God Given Morals of Christians

Their god given moral told them it was perfectly ok to commit the worst act of mass genocide and extermination against my Native American ancestors under their Manifest Destiny theology.

To slaughter and butcher millions of the original inhabitants of North, Central and South America, forcing them on death marches to death camps, raping and pillaging the Nations, brutalizing them. Taking the children and forcing them into their brainwashing Christian schools where Christians sought to remove any and all trace of their Native American heritage, through violence, beatings, starvations, rapes and outright murder of these children.

While proclaiming themselves the Civilized Ones bringing the religion of peace and love and non-judgment of Christianity to us savage injuns. Stealing our lands in their massacres of us. Slaughtering our game to starve us. Committing acts of Crimes Against Humanity in their biological warfare against us.

It told them it was ok to commit acts of mass murder in their 9 forced conversion programs against the Pagans of Northern Europe. It told them it was ok in 322 AD to proclaim Paganism a death penalty punishment and invade their countries and under their ChristoFascist Taliban ways? Slaughter whole towns of Pagans, murder Pagan priests and priestesses, beat to death Pagan children on the spot who were found playing with Pagan statutes as if they were playing with a doll. Destroying Pagan temples and then? Stealing all the Pagan holy days and rituals and converting them to their own use of Christianity.

It told them it was ok to slaughter whole towns of Jewish people, to blame them for the Black Death, etc. To wipe out Jewish towns of people because they said they murdered their Christian Lord and Savior, despite the fact that all what Christians teach goes against everything that Jewish theology and Old Testament teachings of theirs. It did not matter they literally hijacked the Hebrew religious beliefs and converted them to their Christian ones and then? Slaughtered, butchered and murdered the Jews.

It told them it was ok for them to build some of the most foul, evil and diabolocal torture machines to use on their fellow human beings they proclaimed as witches and heretics, and of course scientists who they disagreed with because the scientist proved them wrong.

It told them it was ok to own their fellow human beings as slaves. To even fight wars over the owning of another human being as a slave. Because hey, god commanded slavery in the bible, so according to gods morals? It is perfectly ok for Christians to own another human being as a slave.

It told them it was ok to go to war over differences in their belief in a god and a Jesus and slaughter whole nations and decimate their populations, like in the Thirty Year War between the Catholics and Protestants.

Yeah, Christian morality from their god and Jesus and leaders who order them to go out and slaughter people? Sure leaves a whole freaking lot to be desired. But of course? In their apologist hypocrisy? They will play the No True Scotsman line of apologetic bullshit to proclaim those people who did those things were not True Christians lmfao.

And of course? They say the same for the hundreds of thousands of Christian priests and pastors busted for raping kids, while they blame lgbts, atheists and Pagans for their rampant pedophilia.

Christians Are Nothing But In The Closet Practicing Pagans: Candelaria

Candelaria

Christianity did not become a major religion by the quality of its truth, but by the quantity of its violence

Candlemas (also spelled Candlemass), is  also known as the Feast of the Presentation of Jesus Christ and the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is a Christian Holy Day commemorating the presentation of Jesus at the Temple. It is based upon the account of the presentation of Jesus in Luke 2:22–40 which is the gospel today.

We had a short procession after the blessing of candles outside the church.  We had to light at least one candle while going inside the church. It was a lovely celebration with our good friend Fr. Aly officiating.  All my candles at home were previously blessed and we usually use them at the altar during prayers at home.   It is better to light a candle than to stumble in the dark.

Tomorrow is the Feast of St. Blaise. Blaise is venerated as a saint in the Roman Catholic church. A doctor, he is a patron saint of those sufferers from throat diseases. I told Nissa to hear mass too so her throat would be blessed.

I love these Catholic rituals that we observe throughout the year.  They strengthen my faith and beliefs.

You ought to check out the Pagan’s Imbolic from which you Christians butchered and slaughtered during your Christian forced conversion Crusades into Northern Paganlands, and stole their Imbolic and converted it to the Christian Candlemas. Also? Same thing with Yule, which you Christians stole and converted to your Christmas and of course Ostara which you Christians stole and converted to your Easter. Along with your All Saints Day which you all converted from the Pagan’s Samhain.

All you Christians are? Are a bunch of in the closet practicing Pagans lmfao.

Celebrating Candlemas Day

Learn about the origins of Candlemas day plus ways to celebrate this Pagan holiday which promises of the return of the light and the renewal of life.

From the link: https://www.beliefnet.com/faiths/pagan-and-earth-based/2004/02/celebrating-candlemas.aspx

Feb. 2 is one of the great cross-quarter days which make up the wheel of the year. It falls midway between the winter solstice and the spring equinox and in many traditions is considered the beginning of spring.

In Western Europe, this was the time for preparing the fields for the first planting. Pamela Berger has written a book, The Goodess Obscured: Transformation of the Grain Protectress from Goddess to Saint, about the rituals celebrated at this time of year, when the ground is first awakened and the seed placed in the belly of the earth. This is a significant moment in a community which depends on the earth for sustenance. The fields were purified and offerings were made to the goddess.

The promises of the return of the light and the renewal of life which were made at the winter solstice are now becoming manifest. It’s the dawn of the year. It’s the time when a woman who is pregnant begins showing. It’s time to creep out of the hibernation of winter, cautiously, like the Ground Hog who supposedly emerges on this day to check his shadow. It’s the time of germination. This is a traditional time for new beginnings. Covens of witches usually initiate new members at this time.

What is the best way to celebrate? Candles and Christmas Greens The main element of your decorating scheme for Candlemas is fairly obvious: candles. You can gather all the candles in your home in one room and light them from one central candle. Or place a candle in each window (but watch them carefully).

Candlemas is one of the traditional times for taking down Christmas decorations (Twelfth Night, on Jan. 6, is the other). If you are very careful (because they are tinder dry), you can burn them. Or, better yet, return them to the earth mother by using them for compost or mulch.

Certain foods are traditional for Candlemas, including crepes, pancakes and cakes, all grain-based foods. Pancakes and crepes are considered symbols of the sun because of their round shape and golden color.

If you have a fireplace, clean out your hearth and light a new fire. Sit around the fire and reflect on your hopes for the coming year. What do you hope to accomplish? What are you passionate about? What seeds do you wish to plant? Discuss these ideas with others or write them down in a journal, but make them concrete in some way so that on Lammas (Aug. 2, the festival of the first harvest), you can look back to see your progress.

Brigid is the goddess of creative inspiration as well as reproductive fertility. This is a good time for sharing creative work, or, if you don’t think of yourself as especially creative, an idea that worked or a plan that materialized. Thank the Goddess for her inspiration, perhaps by dedicating a future work to her.

Since Candlemas is a time of new beginnings, this is also a good day to celebrate all things new. Plan a ceremony to name a new baby, officially welcome a new person into a family or plight your troth to your beloved. Make a commitment to a goal, like a New Year’s resolution. This would be an especially powerful thing to do in a group.

In San Francisco, the Reclaiming Collective sponsors a public ritual called Brigid, which focuses on political commitment. After acknowledging despair over the events of the past year, the participants reflect on the source of their own power and then make a pledge in front of the community about the work they intend to do during the coming year. During this ritual, the flames in a cauldron represent Brigid’s Sacred Flame, the fire of inspiration and passion, while a punch bowl filled with waters gathered from all over the world represents Brigid’s Holy Well, the source of healing and purification.

If you plan your own ceremony, use these two powerful symbols: fire and water. For instance, wash your hands and bathe your face in salt water, which is especially good for purification. Light a candle as you make your pledge. Incorporate the third symbol of the holiday–seeds–by planting a seed or bulb in a pot to symbolize your commitment, or by blessing a bowl or packet of seeds that you will plant later.

Since the Christian season of Lent can sometimes begin as early as Feb. 4, some Candlemas customs have became associated with Shrove Tuesday or Mardi Gras (the day before Lent’s beginning on Ash Wednesday), which is a time of purification.

Have you ever given anything up for Lent? If not, you might consider it. You don’t have to be Christian to gain spiritual benefits from the voluntary surrender of something you cherish. You can give up something frivolous or something serious, but it should be something you will notice. Folk wisdom says it takes six weeks (or approximately the 40 days of Lent) to establish a new habit, so you may end up with a lifestyle change.

The kids in our neighborhood have eagerly embraced the idea of giving up something for Lent. We know one little girl who gave up TV for Lent and another who gave up catsup, her favorite food. In the last two years, I’ve given up alcohol and coffee for Lent. Forty days is enough time to notice the difference in the way you feel without a favorite substance or distraction.

Since Candlemas is often considered the beginning of spring, you can perform another ritual act of purification: spring cleaning. This would be a good time to do a thorough house cleaning, sweeping the floors with salt water, banishing the gloom of winter and creating a sparkling, shiny new setting for spring.

In Ireland, this holy day is called Imbolc and begins at sunset on Feb. 1, continuing through sunset Feb. 2. There are different derivations offered for the name Imbolc: from Ol-melc (ewe’s milk) because the ewes are lactating at this time, from Im-bolg (around the belly) in honor of the swelling belly of the earth goddess, and from folcaim (I wash) because of the rites of purification which took place at this time. All of these explanations capture the themes of this festival.

Feb. 1 is the feast day of St. Brigid, who began her life as a pagan goddess and ended up a Christian saint. She was a fire and fertility goddess. In her temple at Kildare, vestal virgins tended an eternal fire. On her feast day, her statue was washed in the sea (purification) and then carried in a cart through the fields surrounded by candles.

The legends about the goddess, Brigid, gradually became associated with (the somewhat spurious) Saint Brigid who founded the first convent in Ireland (where else?) at Kildare.

To celebrate St. Brigid’s day, people put a loaf of bread on the windowsill for the Saint and an ear of corn for her white cow, offerings for the grain goddess like the loaf buried in the first furrow. A small quantity of special seeds are mixed with those to be sown. Wheat stalks are woven into X-shaped crosses to serve as charms to protect home from fire and lightning.

In the Highlands, women dress the corn doll or last sheaf (from Lammas or the autumn equinox) in a bridal gown and put her in a basket, which is called the Bride’s bed. A wand, candle or other phallic object is laid across her and Bride is invited to come, for her bed is ready.

Later the Catholic Church superimposed a Christian holiday on this pagan festival. Jewish women went through a purification ceremony 40 days after the birth of a male child (80 days after the birth of a female child). So in the 6th century, Feb. 2 (39 days after Christmas) was declared the feast of the Purification of Mary. The theme of purification remained a link between the two holy days.

Like many miraculous babies, Jesus is recognized as a future hero from the time of his infancy. One of these recognitions occurs in Luke 2:21 when he is being presented in the temple (at the time of Mary’s purification ) and a holy man, Simeon, recognizes him as the Christ, calling him “a light for revelation.”

This is the ostensible reason given for the custom of bringing candles to church to be blessed by the priest on Feb. 2. They are then take home, where they serve as talismans and protections from all sorts of disasters. This custom is the origin for the name Candle-mass. In Hungary, according to Dorothy Spicer in The Book of Festivals, Feb. 2 is called Blessing of the Candle of the Happy Woman. In Poland, it is called Mother of God Who Saves Us From Thunder.

Actually, this festival has always been associated with fire. In ancient Armenia (writes Spicer), this was the date of the pagan spring festival in honor of Mihr, the God of fire. Originally, fires were built in his honor in open places and a lantern was lit which burned in the temple throughout the year. When Armenia became Christian, the fires were built in church courtyards instead. People danced about the flames, jumped over them and carried home embers to kindle their own fires from the sacred flames.

Christian Persecution Being Called GENOCIDE: World Turns A Blind Eye

I love it when pissant Christians cry how they are persecuted. No, I really do. Their complete and utter hypocrisy is in full exposure when Christians cry how much they are persecuted. For 1,700 years? Christians persecuted Native Americans, Pagans, Atheists, LGBTS, Jews, and many others. Christians put to brutal deaths millions upon millions in their 1,700 year history.

Christians deserve to be persecuted. They deserve to reap back all they have sown in their persecutions of Pagans, Native Americans, Jews, lgbts, atheists and many others. Christians should reap what they have sown and have done unto them as they do unto others.

Is The Bible Creating Atheists?

https://victorscornerdotorg.wordpress.com/2019/09/14/atheists-and-the-bible/

Not only does the Bible create atheists, Christians themselves are the biggest creators of atheists.

How does the bible create atheists?

The bible, especially the Old Testament? Has god ordering the brutal murders of others. From ordering his followers to rip the fetuses out of the wombs of pregnant women, to ordering his followers to smash the bodies of infants and children against rocks to brutally murder them.

You proclaim this god is loving and merciful? But? In response to the Prophet Elisha? God sent two she bears to rip to shreds and maul 42 children. What was their death penalty punishment for? Making a joke about the prophet Elisha’s bald head. This is not a loving and merciful god in the least bit.

Your god allowed the Tribe of Benjamin to slaughter a whole town because they were under a curse and could not get any of the other Tribes of Israel to give them virgin girls to marry. So what did they do? They went to Jabesh Gilead and slaughtered the whole town, including the animals, save the virgin girls. Those? They brutally raped and under Levitical law? Forced them into marriage. And when the Tribe only got 400 virgins from Jabesh? That was not enough so they went and kidnapped the vestial virgin dancing girls of Shiloh and did the same to them. All with their gods approval.

You got god commanding that children be put to brutal deaths for all kinds of shit. You got god commanding that a raped virgin must marry her rapist for life. You got god commanding stoning death punishments for adultery for women who are raped outside a town and do not scream loud enough to be heard.

You got god committing worldwide mass genocide against innocent fetuses, infants and children.

You got god commanding that certain children be sacrificed and their bodies put into the foundation of the walls of the Temple.

And I could go on and on and on.

ANYONE DESCRIBING THIS GOD AS HOLY? AS JUST? AS MERCIFUL? AS LOVING? HAS NO FUCKING CLUE WHAT IS HOLY, WHAT IS JUST AND WHAT IS LOVING OR MERCIFUL.

THIS GOD IS A PURE EVIL BEING. ANYONE WHO WORSHIPS THIS GOD AS GOOD? IS IN FACT? WORSHIPING A SATAN, A VILE, EVIL, DEGENERATE MONSTER WHO DESERVES NO WORSHIP.

HOW DID CHRISTIANS CREATE ATHEISTS?

From the moment Christians gained power in 322 AD? They started their vile, evil persecutions and mass slaughters of others, through their forced conversion programs.

They made it a death penalty punishment to be a Pagan and proceeded to literally slaughter and butcher Pagan priests and priestesses. They would beat to death on the spot a child found playing with a Pagan statute and in 9 Forced Conversion Crusades into Northern Paganlands? They slaughtered hundreds of thousands of Pagans, wiping out whole towns and villages of Pagans.

The Crusades to Jerusalem? Well they should have called those the Slaughters of the Jews. For the five crusades to Jerusalem? The Christians slaughtered whole towns of Jews. When they got to Jerusalem? They slaughtered more Jews and actually fellow Christians? Than they did Muslims. They actually had to call off the Third and Fourth Crusades cause Christians had murdered so many Jews and fellow Christians? There were not enough Christians left alive to go fight in Jerusalem.

Then? You got all the Christian wars, like the Thirty Year war between Protestant and Catholic Christians in the Germanic region, where? They literally wiped out 75% of the population and it took three generations to come back from that war.

Or? How about the Protestant and Catholic Inquisitional periods? Where Christians invented some of the most vile and evil, diabolical torture tools to put their fellow human beings to brutal deaths? Or their tortures of those they proclaimed as witches, heretics and scientists?

Of course? You got the Black Death period, where Christians brutally murdered Jews and those they declared as Witches.

And? You got the Christians committing the worst case of mass genocide in recorded human history against us Native Americans of North, Central and South America, wiping out millions of us Native Americans under their ChristoTaliban Manifest Destiny evil.

You got Christians committing more recent genocides in Bosnia and Somolia, you got Christians in countries like Uganda putting to brutal deaths lgbts, atheists and others. You got Christians Pastors of Hate in the US screaming, foaming at the mouth for the death penalty for lgbts, atheists and others.

Oh and let’s not forget the millions of children raped, tortured and harmed by Christian priest and pastor pedophiles.

So It is mostly Christians? Who prove beyond any shadow of a doubt? That their religion is no better than the Muslims and even worse, Cause in their hypocrisy? They state they are a religion of peace, love, non-judgment, etc but their words, actions and deeds? Prove anything but.
