Members of a grassroots atheist group say they will tear out pages of the Bible at the Huntington Beach pier Saturday to point out what they say is immorality in the book many Christians base their faith on.
Backyard Skeptics members plan to rip out pages with specific passages of the Bible that they say portray immoral biblical law, organizers say.
Group members will rip out verses in the Bible such as Deuteronomy 22: 14-31, which says if a man finds his wife not to be a virgin, the community can stone her; or a later verse in the same chapter the Backyard Skeptics say can be interpreted to say that virgins who are raped will be forced to marry their rapist. - OG Register
You know what they say about fighting the heads of a hydra.
Christianity, as we know it, is odious because it emphasizes (a) rampant individualism and (b) pity.
But this is not unique to Christianity.
It arises in liberalism as well, and in fact, in any situation where groups of people are gathered, and a whole bunch of them decide life is unfair and they need to retaliate against those who are succeeding.
It happened in ancient Greece and ancient India long before Christianity existed. It even happened to the Jewish people several times before the age of Christ.
So what's the point -- since we, as nihilists, and those who might enjoy some Satan-worshipping Christ-sodomizing black metal periodically?
Answer: look toward reality.
The problem is the psychology of liberalism. Christianity is many things, and seems to have been twisted by the Crowd, as they twist everything else.
I support a two-fold attack:
- Attack Crowdism. Even liberalism is a head of the hydra. While liberalism needs be smote, the real question here is how to maintain constant vigilance against the formation of the lynch mob/pity party that is Crowdism.
- Reform Christianity. In its original form, Christianity was a transcendental religion for those who wanted to find greater bonding with their world. It was not liberal, or Crowd-friendly, at all. Let's restore and expand that.
Black metal died in part because "crush the lies of Christ" became an advertising jingle. It was all you had to say to be accepted, so in came those of a sheeplike mentality, and they turned it mediocre.
What we need instead are positive values, like "let's Paganize Christianity again" or "let's build a post-Crowdist world."
Because Crowdism is so elusive to define and spot, the crusade to reform it is hard to corrupt by turning it into a jingle and making it the cost of admission for blockheads.
No, when it comes to rabble-rousing, there's really no difference here at all. German leftists stir up fears about Catholicism in almost the exact same way that right-wing populists do against Islam. Whether it's Ulla Jelpke or RenÃ© Stadtkewitz, The Left party's Andrej Hunko or Geert Wilders, on both sides you will find the same eagerness for insult, scorn and hate. If someone like Stadtkewitz is guilty of breaching public order and flouting religious freedom, his critics from The Left party might want to look in the mirror. Islamophobia and an equally irrational fear of Catholicism are two sides of the same coin.
Now it might be argued that Islamophobia in Germany is directed at a minority which needs special protection. But it's not as simple as that. In many parts of Germany, Christians are also in the minority. In Leipzig, they make up mere 12 percent of the population, in the Hamburg district of Veddel, 15 percent. In Berlin as well there are now neighbourhoods that have more Muslims than Christians. - The Local
As you can see, there's no end of this.
The left (who are Crowdists) attack elements of culture of their own society -- this includes attacking Christianity, attacking nationalism, and support of multiculturalism to destroy the indigenous population of Germans -- so that they can eliminate barriers to Crowdism.
Not all Crowdists are leftists, but all leftists/liberals are Crowdists.
The right is attacking this attack, but the left/liberals want to construe the right's defense as an attack on something logical and natural, when it is not.
When you join in the bashing of any part of your own culture, you join in this Crowdist crusade.
This is why it is essential to re-construct and re-design existing culture, instead of screaming against it like an angry child.
Positive values are hard to corrupt, but all negative values end up destroying barriers to Crowdism.
