The Despoiling of America – Dominionism
(Highlights)

A Machiavellian Religion Was Born – Dominionism

The religion the canny thinkers founded follows the reverse of communism and secular humanism, it poured political and economic ideology into a religion and that combustible mixture produced “Dominionism,” a new political faith that had the additional advantage of insulating the cult from attacks on its political agenda by giving its practitioners the covering to simply cry out, “You’re attacking me for my religious beliefs and that’s religious persecution!”

In fact, Machiavelli taught that it is dangerous for a leader to practice goodness. Instead, he must pretend to be good and then do the opposite. Machiavelli taught that a leader will succeed on appearances alone. A good leader puts his finger to the wind and changes course whenever it is expedient to do so. Machiavelli wrote this revealing passage that could be applied not only to false religious leaders but to a false President:

“Alexander VI did nothing else but deceive men, he thought of nothing else, and found the occasion for it; no man was ever more able to give assurances, or affirmed things with stronger oaths, and no man observed them less; however, he always succeeded in his deceptions, as he well knew this aspect of things.”

“Everybody sees what you appear to be, few feel what you are, and those few will not dare to oppose themselves to the many, who have the majesty of the state to defend them; and in the actions of men, and especially of princes, from which there is no appeal, the end justifies the means.”

Chillingly Machiavelli advises his readers:

“Let a prince therefore aim at conquering and maintaining the state, and the means will always be judged honourable and praised by every one, for the vulgar is always taken by appearances and the issue of the event; and the world consists only of the vulgar, and the few who are not vulgar are isolated when the many have a rallying point in the prince. In truth there is no sure method of holding them (rule over people) except by despoiling them. And whoever becomes the ruler of a free city and does not destroy it, can expect to be destroyed by it, for it can always find a motive for rebellion in the name of liberty and of its ancient usages…”

How Can Evil Deeds Be Reconciled With Christian Beliefs?

It’s important to understand that the founders of Dominionism are sitting on the horns of a moral dilemma: How can a leader be both good and evil at the same time? For if biblical moral proscriptions are applicable to him, he will certainly suffer some form of censure. And if proscriptions are applicable, the leader could not lie to the citizenry with impunity or do evil so that “good” could be achieved. The answer to the dilemma of how a Dominionist leader could both do evil and still maintain his place of honor in the Christian community lies in the acceptance and adoption of the Calvinistic doctrine that James Hogg wrote about in “The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner.”

This novel, published in 1824, is concerned with psychological aberration and as such, anticipates the literature of the twentieth century. The protagonist is a young man named Robert, who drenched in the religious bigotry of Calvinism, concluded that he was predestined before the beginning of the world to enter heaven, therefore no sin he committed would be held to his account. This freed Robert to become an assassin in the cause of Christ and His Church.

Fifty years ago a variation on the concept was expressed disapprovingly as, “Once saved—always saved.” In this view, salvation had nothing to do with “good works or a holy life.” A drunk who had a born again experience would be among God’s chosen elect whether he stopped drinking or not. But the logical extension of the reasoning is the idea that Christianity could have within itself not ex-sinners but active sinners: as Christian murderers, Christian pedophiles, Christian rapists, Christian thieves, Christian arsonists, and every other kind of socio-pathological behavior possible. As we have sadly witnessed of late the concept is broadly accepted within the American churches.

But the Dominionists needed the aberrant extension of Calvinism; they believe as did Calvin and John Knox that before the creation of the universe, all men were indeed predestined to be either among God’s elect or were unregenerate outcasts. And it is at this point Dominionists introduced a perversion to Calvinism—the same one James Hogg utilizes in his The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner—its technical name is “supralapsarianism.” It means essentially that the man called from before the foundation of the world to be one of the elect of God’s people, can do no wrong.

How comforting the Calvinistic idea of a “justified sinner” is when one is utilizing Machiavellian techniques to gain political control of a state. It’s more than comforting; it is a required doctrine for “Christians” who believe they must use evil to bring about good. It justifies lying, murder, fraud and all other criminal acts without the fuss of having to deal with guilt feelings or to feel remorse for the lives lost through executions, military actions, or assassinations.

In 1999, Michael Ledeen (of the conservative think tank, the American Enterprise Institute) published his book,” Machiavelli on Modern Leadership: Why Machiavelli’s Iron Rules Are as Timely and Important Today as Five Centuries Ago.”

Here is a sample of how Ledeen smoothes rough edges and presents a modern Machiavelli:

“In order to achieve the most noble accomplishments, the leader may have to ‘enter into evil.’ This is the chilling insight that has made Machiavelli so feared, admired, and challenging. It is why we are drawn to him still. Just as the quest for peace at any price invites war and, worse than war, defeat and domination, so good acts sometimes advance the triumph of evil, as there are circumstances when only doing evil ensures the victory of a good cause. All’s fair in war . . . and in love. Practicing deceit to fulfill your heart’s desire might be not only legitimate, but delicious!”

Ledeen’s ideas were repeated daily by such figures as Karl Rove, Richard Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz…He basically believes that violence in the service of the spread of democracy is America’s manifest destiny. Consequently, he has become the philosophical legitimator of the American occupation of Iraq.

The Dominionist Plan: Today Control the USA, Tomorrow the World

Significantly, Dominionism is a form of Social Darwinism. It inherently includes the religious belief that wealth-power is a sign of God’s election. That is, out of the masses of people and the multitude of nations—wealth, in and of itself, is thought to indicate God’s approval on men and nations whereas poverty and sickness reflect God’s disapproval.

Under this concept Dominionists are to go into all the world to take dominion and “make disciples” teaching the disciples to “observe all” that Jesus “commanded.” All nations under Dominionist’s teaching are to convert to biblical laws, which are ranked superior to secular laws that were not God given or God directed and are found wanting. The Christian therefore must be willing to overthrow all laws that are secular.

In other words, a measure of one’s spirituality rested upon the individual’s willingness to accept the concept of taking dominion over not only the people of America, but taking dominion over the people of the entire world. From Dominionists’ actual words, the taking of America is perceived as a violent act.

What “Dominion” Means

There were an estimated 110,000 Pentecostal and fundamentalist churches in America in the 1980s. The role of the Christian is to rule over the wicked. Dominionism’s purpose is to create theocrats (a Christian class of rulers).

The believers who are destined to rule are called the “elect,” and are separated from those believers who do not and will not accept the predestined superiority of the chosen ruling class. A Christian who raises his voice against the “elect” could be labeled a “false prophet or a dreamer of dreams,” and therefore, according to the Deuteronomic law “shall be put to death.”

Dominionism is not a Christian religion—that above everything else, Dominionism is synonymous with Machiavellianism: the ends justify the means. Under Dominionism, true Christianity is a target to destroy, not a goal to achieve.

America’s Dirty Secret: How a Psycho-Sexual Cult Holds America Prisoner
(Highlights)

On 9/11, the United States Air Force failed to respond to multiple hijacking reports, as required by well-established procedure. Additionally, the NORAD defense system was placed on “stand down” for the first time in its history.

Was the command and control of America’s defenses compromised because military leaders had joined a religious cult that believed a “9/11 type” attack, a “Pearl Harbor” as it were, would justify a “holy war” coinciding with fringe interpretations of biblical prophecy?

Has an extremist cult “wormed” its way into defacto control of America’s military forces?

Controlling the military services through a “takeover” of the service academies and officer corps and, financed though moneyed special interests, achieving key control of all military oversight, both in congress and the executive branch, have religious extremists, a virtual American Taliban, become a threat to America and the world?

Through the bungling of high ranking members of a secretive “crusader cult,” headquartered at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, can we now explain the mysterious failures of the “war on terror,” the WMD hunt in Iraq and the Osama bin Laden fiasco, withholding the announcement of his death in 2001?

Many believe this cult has brought only scandal, drugs, corruption and rape to the military. Are they responsible for the condition of our current force, worn thin, nearly 40% under psychiatric treatment, powerful and often harmful medications mixed with a continual diet of right wing politics and mysterious quasi-Christian biblical prophesy.

It is, as will be shown, a controversy about who can make war and how we can keep those who profit from war from ending peace. It is a controversy about who controls America’s nuclear arsenal and whether the American people are in control of their own destiny or have surrendered that power to a globalist cabal, a marriage of religious extremists, banking cartels and multi-national corporations.

THE DOMINIONIST THREAT

The Dominionists are an extremist organization, really an apocalypse cult, pro-Zionist but Antisemitic. Their core beliefs, as stated, are right out of the Middle Ages but, at heart, they are 21st century, “New World Order, all about money, all about war for profit, all about talking war while others do fighting, the suffering and the dying.

Dominionists are one of a series of politically active religious cults currently in control of the United States Air Force and the Army. They gained control though the chaplains corps years ago, led by a break-away Pentecostal sect and through the intercession of Lt. General William Boykin, who championed the politicization of the military by the GOP.

Lt. General Boykin, described by one of his top aides as having “gone off the deep end” is said to talk about little but “Clash of Cultures, the destruction of “non-believers” even if it means the nuclear obliteration of the United States in the process.

Boykin is one of the army of former military pundits who harp on threats of America being invaded by Muslim hordes.

It is noted that the service academies, not only don’t teach but won’t allow discussions of the fact that Muslim nations control only 3% of the world’s military and that no Islamic nation has a deployable military force, no aircraft carriers, no troop transports, air/sea or otherwise, no long range bombers, nothing at all.

Boykin, who believed George “W” Bush was chosen by g-d for the presidency, stating that the Supreme Court’s intercession on behalf of Bush proved conclusively that Bush had actually been “appointed by g-d.” Boykin ran special operations and secret rendition programs for the military under the direct command of Vice President Cheney and Secretary Rumsfeld.

Loyal, talented and capable officers are no longer in control. The process that began in the academies has made certain of that. Those who graduate from these schools have been subjected to years of indoctrination, propaganda and systematic pressure, threats, assaults and “brain washing.”

f you wonder why commanders allow torture and rape in detention centers, why troops are sent to war unfit, exhausted and drugged, why troops are exposed to depleted uranium, dangerous medical treatments, unsafe inoculations, given poisonous food and water and nothing is said, no officer ever comes forward, you now know.

Defending the United States or serving as responsible military leaders is not part of the agenda taught our officers. For our new “Talibanized” officer corps, murdering civilians in their homes in the middle of the night, our current strategy in Afghanistan, the “drone war” with its tens of thousands of women and children dead, this is their war.

They are killing “heathens” in a religious “crusade” taught to them by the Dominionist cult, whose claimed purpose is clear.

Kill every Muslim on earth
Destroy all human life in a nuclear apocalypse fulfilling Scofield’s interpretation of prophesy

Their real purpose, one not so public, but one clearly understandable based on what has been seen and proven:

Undermine civil authority and overturn the Constitution, creating a theocratic military dictatorship

Support forces within the globalist power structure in their efforts to seize the world’s national resources, gaining military control of, first Central Asia followed by North Africa, all under the guise of fighting terrorism or spreading democracy

The military cult is a bizarre offshoot of “Scofieldism,” a 19th century interpretation that strays more than slightly from mainstream Christianity, believing man has an active role in creating the horrors described by John in the Book of Revelations.

Continual references are made to the rapture, a common religious heresy involving images of naked bodies floating in the air, of domination and submission and especially of torture.

SEX TORTURE IN THE MILITARY, NOT JUST FOR PRISONERS

Everyone with access to electronic or print media has seen, at least some of the photographs of prisoners being sexually abused by American troops. Not only would soldiers sexually humiliate prisoners, they would have sex in front of prisoners, a cycle of psycho-sexual depravity based on humiliation and sexual stimulation based on domination, control, submission and physical abuse.

This is what is at the heart of Dominionism, the driving force behind, not just America’s war prisons and military but its government as well.

RAPE IN THE MILITARY, NOT JUST FOR WOMEN

The rise of the male dominated sex cult, claiming to be “crusaders,” or “soldiers of the lord” or “fighter pilots of Christ” or one of a dozen or more dramatic sounding names, chosen to stir fears and exploit divisions, has also directly followed a startling increase in sexual assaults in the military.

Sexual assaults, in a military steeped in forced religious indoctrination, are growing by epidemic proportions each year. Religious beliefs that place women officers in a subservient position to enlisted males, not only are a factor in these criminal acts but a clear threat to military discipline and combat effectiveness as well.

Female officers candidates report that their instructors teach, as a matter of course, that women are inferior to men and are obligated by g-d to serve men at all times, even though the women are of command rank. It would be impossible to find a single instance of irresponsibility more egregious than this.

WASHINGTON AND GOMORRAH
For years, the rumors have been there. The Franklin Case presented evidence of a criminal organization, tied to a major political party, that kidnapped children as sex slaves for Washington’s elite.

We are told that an American president was seen at a Republican fundraiser where a gay sex orgy involving children was going on. There was an attempt to blackmail the president over this, though there was never proof of his direct involvement in anyway.

In the process, the Franklin scandal was covered up and Washington DC was allowed to descend into a hellishness of depravity, human trafficking for sex, blackmail and even murder.

Government insiders allude to George “W” Bush and a mysterious affection for a young ex-Marine. The Bush White House staff was called, “the gay mafia.”

More well substantiated, however, through a multi-year FBI investigation into foreign spying inside the Executive branch, is voluminous evidence of, not one, but several top security advisors to President Bush, filmed having “informal” sexual liaisons in public restrooms with dozens of hours of audio tapes of them outlining the encounters to friends.

We are told that, on more than one occasion, the FBI has been ordered to end national security investigations because the individuals believed spying for a certain foreign government were capable of implicating America’s highest elected officials in, not only illicit sex but a pattern of behaviors that make the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal a joke.

The FBI tapes have been classified, the agents silenced, but in civil trials, such as the Rosen v. AIPAC defamation case, the trail of evidence, depositions from divorces of those involved for instance, describe the “Washington scene,” gay sex clubs, orgies, underage boys and girls and the highest officials, and the biggest abusers of all are the “moral majority” types that people the prayer breakfasts and are seldom seen without a flag on their lapel and a bible under their arm.

SEX WITH CHILDREN, THE PREDILECTION OF THE POWER ELITE

Washington sex parties have been talked about for decades since the virtual invasion of the capital by “big haired” preachers expecting a payoff for supporting the GOP from the pulpit. Joining them, in government were the continually moralizing neo-cons, brought to power by Newt Gingrich’s original “Tea Party” movement.

Washington has changed, no longer strippers and call girls, the army of government “executive assistants” paid to keep errant “members” out of the public eye and out of the scandal sheets.

Washington is a city of private sex clubs, child prostitutes, national secrets passed out like party favors, as though they were billion dollar defense contracts, a nations future, trillions, not even billions, a nation mortgaged through skyrocketing debt, with war, religion and politics no more than a backdrop.

The flavor of the month in Washington, this month and every month is children, child pornography, child sex, disposable children, America’s “missing,” the children seen on milk cartons.

We no longer even count the missing children, 2500 recently in Arizona alone, loses centered around Tucson. They aren’t runaways, not as young as 8 years old.

Child disappearances have always been considered local problem only, never a national one, never spoken of, never discussed, as though disappeared children was a victimless crime.

Franklin was about child kidnappings, Franklin was documented and, if anything, the sexual tastes of a nation in moral free fall, should warn us that “Franklin” is still going on.

Far from “tradition,” an extremist group, more politics than religion, financed and supported by Wall Street, defense industries and the powerful Israel lobby, has taken control of most of America’s military command structure. This control has threatened America’s security, particularly in the case of the “misplaced” nuclear weapons from Minot AFB in 2007. Half a dozen hydrogen bombs attached to Cruise missiles, were stolen. The public was given one cover story, then another.

Those who took the weapons were Dominionists, a psycho-sexual religious cult that worships nuclear Armageddon. Ideation of suicide, worship of nuclear weapons and a sexual fixation with world suicide is a bad mix. Give such a group control over the largest military arsenal on earth, which is exactly what we have done, and only the worst can be expected.

Old Testament Jehovah is Satan!
(Highlights)

“All our ideas of the justice and goodness of God revolt at the impious cruelty of the Bible. It is not God, just and good, but a devil, under the name of God, that the Bible describes. The Old Testament is so full of contradictions and wickedness and could not be the Word of God and …we dishonor God by ascribing it to him.” ~ Thomas Paine

“The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.” ~ Bible, Exodus 15:3

In Hebrew, Je or Jeh or Jah means Lord or God [ref].

The suffix “hovah” is No. 1943 in Strong’s Hebrew Dictionary and has the meaning of “ruin, mischief.”

It is another form of No. 1942, ‘havvah’, which is translated “calamity, iniquity, mischief, mischievous (thing), naughtiness, naughty, noisome, perverse thing, substance, very wickedness.”

Put the two (Je + hovah) together and you get “God of ruin, mischief, calamity, perversion, and wickedness”. And don’t forget ‘noisome‘ – which means it stinks! Simply put, Jehovah is The God of Evil!

Jehovah is Satan/Lucifer/ Embodiment of Evil
(Highlights)

JEHOVAH, is a crazed ego maniac, who thinks he is God of the Universe,

Here are a few reasons I believe this:

1. He created man for his own gain (to do work for him in the Garden of Eden, like you may play with all these gadgets and levers but don’t touch the self destruct mechanism!)

2. He demands sacrifices, (because there is a strain in the DNA he doesnt like, which is why he demands sacrifices of all kinds, he needs death, so he has less to worry about the DNA strain that gets in his way of his own ego driven goals for Earth). You see of course it would please Jehovah, because Jehovah is like trying to be “GOD” of the Earth by controlling it through the manipulation of languages and races for his own sick purposes, and yet Jehovah sounds to me like some dude who is manipulating the system! Jehovah is SATAN, LUCIFER.

The Dark Bible – God, Satan, Jesus, Heaven

The Wrathful God

“Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth. There went up a smoke out of his nostrils and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it. He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet. And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind. He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.” (Psalms 18:7-11)

Comment

Consider that these verses describe an angry (wroth) being, spouting smoke and fire, whose secret place consisted of darkness. This devilish entity sounds like a description of Satan, but believe it or not, actually comes from the Bible as describing God.

God rejoices your death

“And it shall come to pass, that as the LORD rejoiced over you to do you good, and to multiply you; so the LORD will rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to nought; and ye shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possess it.” (Deuteronomy 28:63)

Comment

If the religious mind believes that God represents a loving God, then one must wonder about God, as described in the Bible, who would rejoice to destroy some of his creations.

Should we hold honor to an insane God? The Bible assures us that God possess an evil spirit with hate, and full of wrath, and here he rejoices in destruction! God appears completely devoid of any wit or humor; a mental state that psychologists have observed in many schizophrenics.

Fire Of God

“Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench.” (I Kings 18:38)

Comment

We get told that Satan involves himself with the eternal consuming fire, yet the Bible makes it abundantly clear that hell fire comes directly from God.

The Evil Spirit Of The Lord, 2

“And the evil spirit from the LORD was upon Saul, as he sat in his house with his javelin in his hand: and David played with his hand.” (I Samuel 19:9)

Comment

Consider that many modern Judeo-Christians consider God the opposite of evil, yet here we have, again, the clear Biblical wording of evil coming from the LORD.

In early Christian history, several Gnostic cults believed that the orthodox Church as well as the Old Testament, came from Satan. The Church, of course, labeled these Gnostics as heretics and burned their books as well as the heretics themselves.

Reading the Old Testament appears to affirm the observation that God and Satan, if not one in the same, at least work as a team.

(See also I Samuel 16:23)

Evil Bible
(Highlights)

It always amazes me how many times this God orders the killing of innocent people even after the Ten Commandments said “Thou shall not kill”. For example, God kills 70,000 innocent people because David ordered a census of the people (1 Chronicles 21). God also orders the destruction of 60 cities so that the Israelites can live there. He orders the killing of all the men, women, and children of each city, and the looting of all of value (Deuteronomy 3). He orders another attack and the killing of “all the living creatures of the city: men and women, young, and old, as well as oxen sheep, and asses” (Joshua 6). In Judges 21, He orders the murder of all the people of Jabesh-gilead, except for the virgin girls who were taken to be forcibly raped and married. When they wanted more virgins, God told them to hide alongside the road and when they saw a girl they liked, kidnap her and forcibly rape her and make her your wife! Just about every other page in the Old Testament has God killing somebody! In 2 Kings 10:18-27, God orders the murder of all the worshipers of a different god in their very own church! In total God kills 371,186 people directly and orders another 1,862,265 people murdered.

The God of the Bible also allows slavery, including selling your own daughter as a sex slave (Exodus 21:1-11), child abuse (Judges 11:29-40 and Isaiah 13:16), and bashing babies against rocks (Hosea 13:16 & Psalms 137:9).

This type of criminal behavior should shock any moral person. Murder, rape, pillage, plunder, slavery, and child abuse can not be justified by saying that some god says it’s OK.

Onward, Christian Soldiers!

“Onward, Christian Soldiers, marching as to war, with the cross of Jesus going on before.”

“Ask of me, and I shall give thee, the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.” ~ Bible, Psalms 2:8

“Thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth. But thou shalt utterly destroy them.” ~ Bible, Deut 20

“Anyone who attempted to construe a personal view of god which conflicted with the church dogma must be burned without pity.” ~ Pope Innocent III

“Unbelievers deserve not only to be separated from the Church, but also… to be exterminated from the World by death.” ~ Saint Thomas Aquinas

On every island he set foot on, Columbus planted a cross, “making the declarations that are required” – the requerimiento – to claim the ownership for his Catholic patrons in Spain. And “nobody objected.” If the Indians refused or delayed their acceptance (or understanding), the requerimiento continued: “I certify to you that, with the help of God, we shall powerfully enter in your country and shall make war against you … and shall subject you to the yoke and obedience of the Church … and shall do you all mischief that we can, as to vassals who do not obey and refuse to receive their lord and resist and contradict him.”

The History of Christianity: Evangelism through Fear, Torture and Murder
(Highlights)

Many Christians today love to reference the large number of believers worldwide and the rapid spread of Christianity as proof of God’s spirit at work. What they fail to mention is the history of how God’s spirit convinced people to believe.

The Bible is very consistent in proclaiming sadistic eternal punishment for all non-chosen and non-believing people upon death. This irrational fear mongering has helped successfully propagate this religion throughout the centuries. God loves you and will burn you for eternity if you don’t believe it … and he needs your money.

Throughout the past 2,000 years, Christianity has played an equally sadistic role in people’s lives on earth to convince them to “accept Jesus.” Having complete control over government, human life and spirit made it very easy for the church to do so.

The Christian church murdered, tortured, mutilated and destroyed millions and millions of people both directly through the Inquisition and indirectly through the Crusades and wars they incited. Between the years of 1450-1600, the church was responsible for the torture, and burning of approximately 30,000 alleged “witches.” Millions of these “witches” were murdered over the course of a millennium. Girls as young as nine and boys as young as ten were tried for witchcraft. Children much younger were tortured to extract testimony against their parents. Children were then flogged while they watched their parents burn alive at the stake.

During the reign of the Roman Emperor Constantine CE 306-337 the doctrines of the xtian church were regarded as the foundation of law. Heretics (persons who opposed church teachings) were sought out, tortured and eventually murdered. Heresy was an offense against the state as well as the church.

Things They Don’t Tell You about Christianity
(Highlights)

The early fathers of the Church hated Greek civilisation and sought its destruction. The philobarbarian attitude of Saint John Chrysostom [3rd-4th century]: “The more a nation looks barbaric and is estranged from Greek culture, the more our teachings shine – this (faithful) barbarian has conquered the entire world and while all Greek culture is extinguished and destroyed, his (the barbarian’s) shines brighter every day.”

All over the empire, mobs of Christian monks went about destroying the many Greco-Roman works of art, libraries of antiquity, and pre-Christian temples.

From the time of Constantine, Rome’s first Christian emperor: from 314 CE all the way to 988 CE, the Hellenes (ancient Greeks) were persecuted and their civilisation destroyed. The Greeks were exterminated if they would not convert.

The oldest and most renowned Churches are actually built on sites which previously had pre-Christian temples on them – which Christians had demolished. This happened all over the Roman Empire, to Syria in the East and North Africa and Palestine in the South. The cave of the Vatican belonged to Mithra until 376 A.D., when a city prefect suppressed the cult of the rival Savior and seized the shrine in the name of Christ, on the very birthday of the pagan god, December 25.

According to Roman sources, the Christians …in Rome …were considered a small, uneducated group of religious troublemakers from the lowest social classes, operating in the shadowy sides of society.

3rd century St. Cyprian’s letters to the pope describe how a large part of his clergy and bishops were unmitigated scoundrels: fornication, murder, embezzlement, and all the rest of it.

St. Jerome was convinced that Christian men and women, including priests and nuns, could not be trusted. According to him the only women of virtue to be seen on the streets of Rome were not Christians but pagans.

All the early bishops from all over the empire – St Augustine, Bishop Optatus, St. John Chrysostom, St. Gregory of Nyssa, Saint Hippolytus and others – insisted that their congregation of Christians were highly immoral and corrupt.

Beginning with Constantine, and under succeeding “Christian” emperors, there is a series of scores of laws which the Christians procured to be enacted for the suppression and persecution to death of Pagans, heretics and Jews. These laws and edicts are to be found in the Codes of Theodosius and of Justinian, the two famous codifleations of Roman Law.

The conversion of the ancient Greeks and Romans was achieved through violence and systematic destruction of the Greco-Roman civilizations.

The Roman municipalities supplied free elementary instruction for the children of all workers. Practically every Roman worker could read and write by the year 380 A.D., when Christianity began to have real power. By 480 nearly every school in the Empire was destroyed. By 580, and until 1780 at least, from ninety to ninety-five percent of the people of Europe were illiterate and densely ignorant. That is the undisputed historical record of Christianity as regards education.

Since Christianity regarded learning, mathematics and science as paganism, its followers went about the empire destroying all the schools as they had done the libraries, temples, hospitals and works of art.

Rome under the Popes had sunk to an illiteracy that has no parallel elsewhere in the history of civilization. Rome under the Popes had sunk to an illiteracy that has no parallel elsewhere in the history of civilization.

It is estimated that Europe was Christianised at a cost of about 8 to 10 million lives.

Eastern-Europe remained unconverted until the Crusades when pious Christian knights committed mass-murder and even complete genocide in the north-east.

Then there were the three Inquisitions: the first was against heretics and witches mainly; 95% of the victims of the Second (Spanish) Inquisition were Jews; and the Third Inquisition went after Protestants and other heretics as well as witches again.

At the start of the First Inquistion, the victims were only burnt to death. But: Torture of suspects was authorized by Pope Innocent IV in 1252, and thus inquisition chambers were turned into places of abject horror. Torture was not finally removed as a legal option for church officials until 1917 when the Codex Juris Canonici was put into effect.

The inquisitors and the Holy Church became filthy rich from the assets of their victims.

Historian Will Durant, in his History of Civilisation puts the number of fatalities of the witch hunts between 7 and 9 million.

The Thirty Year War (1618-48) between the Protestants and Catholics, led to the deaths of more than a quarter of Europe’s population.

“Woman was merely man’s helpmate, a function which pertains to her alone. She is not the image of God but as far as man is concerned, he is by himself the image of God.” ~ Saint Augustine (354-430)

The Biblical “Curse of Eve” was used by clergy to prevent physicians from administering anaesthetics to relieve pain during child birth.

Bishops gathered to vote on “Are women human?” By a narrow vote (of 1), women obtained human status in Christianity (584 CE Council Of Macon).

Since the birth-control policy of Christianity resulted in couples having many unwanted children, many of them were mistreated in the Middle Ages. In later times (like during the Industrial Revolution) they were still seen as just another mouth to feed and sent off to do gruelling work, even in mines, and were often kept illiterate. Besides hard labour, children of Christian families have also been subjected to severe mental abuse and have also suffered from physical abuse, as sanctioned by the Bible.

The [Catholic] Spaniards in Mexico and Peru used to baptize Indian infants and then immediately dash their brains out; by this means they secured that these infants went to heaven.

The Indian chief Hatuey fled with his people but was captured and burned alive. As they were tying him to the stake a Franciscan friar urged him to take Jesus to his heart so that his soul might go to heaven, rather than descend into hell. Hatuey replied that if heaven was where the Christians went, he would rather go to hell.

When in 1530 CE the Pope finally declared that the Indians were human, the pious Christians began converting the heathens.

The Inquisition remained active until 1834, especially in Central and South America, where “heathen” natives were tortured and burned for crimes against the true faith, such as, “not believing in it.”

The early Church fathers, Saints, Popes, Protestant Reformers all condoned slavery – it was Biblical, after all. The Bible was used to justify slavery and led to racism: the Curse of Ham, supposedly applicable to Africans, was the reason they “deserved to be slaves.

Christianity in the Americas: 60 million Native Americans had been exterminated by the end of the 16th century itself.

Estimates vary, but somewhere between 20 million and 60 million people were captured, enslaved and brought to the Americas. Millions more died in the slave raids, in the dungeons and in the Middle Passage.

Slave castles, with central Churches, were often built over the ancient shrines of the pagan Africans.

The most widespread and effective religious argument was the simple suggestion that slavery was part of God’s plan to expose a hitherto heathen people to the blessings of Christianity.

Missions were in league with colonialism, often even gruesomely so. They helped to destroy old cultures, to uproot people, to divide families and entire populations. They supported and approved of a system that let countless of millions in three continents be reduced to poverty, bringing them hunger and sickness. In the misdevelopment of Latin America, Africa and Asia – [which is] the major problem in the present – missionaries and Churches of all persuasions and confessions (denominations) were complicit.

A total of maybe more than 150 million Indians (of both Americas) were destroyed in the period of 1500 to 1900, as an average two thirds by smallpox and other epidemics, that leaves some 50 million killed directly by violence, bad treatment and slavery.

In thirty years of despicable missionary rule in Tahiti, only 6,000 of the indigenous people remained from an initial 200,000.

By the 1860s, in Hawai’i the Reverend Rufus Anderson surveyed the carnage that by then had reduced those islands’ native population by 90 percent or more, and he declined to see it as tragedy; the expected total die-off of the Hawaiian population was only natural, this missionary said, somewhat equivalent to ‘the amputation of diseased members of the body’.

It is established that the Church has to answer for the main share of the guilt of the impoverishment of the present 3rd world.

As soon as the Greco-Roman empire was wrested from pagan hands, the Christians started persecuting the Jews. Christian Roman Emperor Justinian was the one who legalized the burning and pillaging of Jewish synagogues by Christian bishops and monks (often canonized later).

“The Jews are the most worthless of all men. They are perfidious murderers of Christ. The Jews are the odious assassins of Christ and for killing God there is no expiation possible, no indulgence or pardon. God always hated the Jews. It is incumbent upon all Christians to hate the Jews.” ~ Saint John Chrysostom

The Vatican in its non-apology had denied that Christian anti-Semitism had anything to do with Nazism. It also claims it denounced a core Christian belief – the foundation of anti-Semitism – after WWII.

The Origins of Islam
(Highlights)

If this planet’s inhabitants would simply become educated to the origins of their religious traditions in full, we could live in a world of tremendous beauty and knowledge, as opposed to ugly, superstitious and repressive ideologies that are exclusionary and bigoted. Islam arose because of the repression of Christianity and Judaism, as well as an unbalanced female-oriented culture. Like those traditions, Islam is utterly out of balance, and we may all suffer for it, particularly if the predictions come true that Islam will be the most dominant religion in the world in the next decades.

As previously stated, there are few non-Muslim women or men who would wish to live in such a world. Because of this aversion, we would expect to see in the future innumerable ghastly battles and wars waged in the name of one god or another, as has happened far too often in the past, especially with these monotheistic Abrahamic faiths of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. All told, these three are responsible for the deaths of hundreds of millions of people, so why are they deemed “Great religions?” The “greatest” thing about them is their death toll.

Since Islam is one of the world’s fastest growing religions, through conversion but mostly through reproduction, there is a tremendous need to address this subject, which, because of crazed Islamic fanatics, strikes fear in the hearts of many non-Muslims. Competing with Christianity, with some 270 million people dead in its name Islam represents one of the bloodiest and most repressive ideologies that humankind has yet come up with.

Islamic doctrine is anything but “peace-loving,” as it constantly calls for the slaying of “idolaters” and “infidels” (e.g., Q 2:191, 9:5, 9:73 ), among other harsh commentary in the Koran as well as other texts such as the hadiths.

It would be safe to say that few non-Muslims would like to see this world taken over by Islam, which, along with Christianity, represents the worst of Oriental despotism. Many futurists and visionaries would like to see this planet pry itself free of religions, especially those stuck in the Dark Ages. Indeed, to those who enjoy the ultimate freedom of expression, these predictions and predations are chilling, because Islam is a fervid theocracy with little room for individuality, not to mention that it utterly denigrates the female aspect of creation.

What are the origins of Islam? Well, the Muslim religion is obviously built upon the Judeo-Christian tradition, but it is also a reaction to said tradition, which excluded and vilified the various Arab cultures. Like their Jewish brothers and sisters, the Semitic Arabs trace their lineage to the biblical patriarch Abraham, who is depicted in the Bible as having mated with Hagar the Egyptian, producing the progenitor of the Arab race, Ishmael. While the Jewish contingent interprets this tale to justify its own ethnocentric ideology, Muslims interpret it to fit theirs, claiming that “God” would make of Ishmael’s people a “great nation” (Gen 21:18). Typically, instead of searching for the truth about this tale, its proponents have turned it into a political competition for global domination.

Arabian Matriarchy

Concerning the nation of Arabia, Walker asserts that, prior to the encroachment of Islam, it was a matriarchal culture for over 1,000 years:

“The Annals of Ashurbanipal said Arabia was governed by queens for as long as anyone could remember….

“Mohammed’s legends clearly gave him a matriarchal family background. His parents’ marriage was matrilocal. His mother remained with her own family and received her husband as an occasional visitor….

“Pre-Islamic Arabia was dominated by the female-centered clans. Marriages were matrilocal, inheritance matrilineal. Polyandry—several husbands to one wife—was common. Men lived in their wives’ homes. Divorce was initiated by the wife. If she turned her tent to face east for three nights in a row, the husband was dismissed and forbidden to enter the tent again.

“Doctrines attributed to Mohammed simply re-versed the ancient system in favor of men. A Moslem husband could dismiss his wife by saying ‘I divorce thee’ three times. As in Europe, the change from matriarchate to patriarchate came about only gradually and with much strife.

“…However, the history of early-medieval Arabia is nearly all legend. Like Buddha, Confucius, Jesus and other founders of patriarchal religions, Mohammed lacks real verification. There is no reliable information about his life or teachings. Most stories about him are as apocryphal as the story that his coffin hangs forever in mid-air ‘between heaven and earth,’ like the bodies of ancient sacred kings.

Who Wrote the Koran?

As concerns the Koran, the Muslim holy book, Walker (513) says:

“Mohammedan scriptures, often erroneously thought to have been written by Mohammed. Moslems don’t believe this. But many don’t know the Koran was an enlarged revised version of the ancient Word of the Goddess Kore, revered by Mohammed’s tribe, the Koreshites (Children of Kore), who guarded her shrine at Mecca.

“The original writing was done long before Mohammed’s time by holy imams, a word related to Semitic ima, ‘mother.’ Like the original mahatmas or ‘great mothers’ of India, the original imams were probably priestesses of the old Arabian matriarchate. It was said they took the scripture from a prototype that existed in heaven from the beginning of eternity, ‘Mother of the Book’—i.e., the Goddess herself, wearing the Book of Fate on her breast as Mother Tiamat wore the Tablets of Destiny. Sometimes the celestial Koran was called the Preserved Tablet. There was some resemblance between this and other legendary books of divine origin, such as the Ur-text, the Book of Thoth, and the Emerald Tablet of Hermes.

“As in the case of the Judeo-Christian Bible, the Koran was much rewritten to support new patriarchal laws and to obliterate the figures of the Goddess and her priestesses.”

The evidence reveals that the Koran was created over a period of decades, if not centuries, by a number of hands, rather than representing a single, divine “revelation” from the Almighty to Mohammed.

Despite the unconvincing attempts by well-meaning individuals to assert the pacificism of Islam, the fact is that it is a desert warrior’s religion and was not spread by peaceful means. As Gerald Berry says, in Religions of the World (62):

“Partly because he needed funds and partly because his followers were not skilled in agriculture as were the natives of Yathrib, [Mohammed] organized fighting bands to raid caravans. Having no ties with the older religions, he sent them out even in the peace months. This started Arabia’s Holy War. Mohammed’s whole movement took on the character of religious militarism. He made the Moslem fanatic fighters by teaching that admission to Paradise was assured for all those who died fighting in the cause of Allah.”

In the end, Islam, which means “submission,” is built upon older myths and traditions and was designed to usurp the power of Christians, Jews and women. While we have no quarrel with all Arabian culture, we do have a big problem with ideologies that are filled with half-truths and lies. Because of arrogance and bigotry, ancient cultures, along with their variety, justice and beauty, have become nearly obliterated. In effect, the Western monolithic religions represent a massive degradation of culture.

If this world is to survive into the coming age, we will need as many people as possible to drop all of these divisive doctrines (Christianity, Judaism and Moslem). What we need on this planet, right now, are honest, caring and whole human beings who are motivated not by potential favors and rewards from sadistic and ethnocentric deities in the sky but by innate decency and integrity. Only in this way can we all live in peace rather than fear, which is the weapon wielded by religion to convert the “faithful.”
