I'm dreaming of white Easter
To watch the Global Warmists fold.
Where the smokers shiver
Till the drink's delivered
And Easter Bunnies die of cold.
Have you any idea how hard it is to make any kind of rhyme with 'myxomatosis'? Well, today started with a little snow and a lot of cold and now it's snowing again. A white Easter is on the cards here. So much for 'we'll never see snow in the UK again' eh?
Easter was, of course a Pagan fertility festival before Christianity arrived. Hence the eggs and the rabbits, both notably absent from any of the Gospel accounts of the Crucificion. There has never been any translation that included the line 'And lo, while the Saviour hung on the cross, the very rabbits came forth from the warrens under Calgary and offered unto him chocolate eggs'. Nope. Didn't happen. Or maybe it did and the disciples had a meeting afterwards and decided that some things were just pushing the envelope of credibility just that bit too far.
The day now called Halloween, end of harvest, was a fire-purification ritual. The bonfires were banned by the new religion sweeping the land, but this is Britain and always was. When you ban something it makes us more determined to do it. Eventually the bonfires moved to November 5th and were blamed on Guy Fawkes. So the pagans were still allowed to burn stuff but it was dissociated from its origins. Fireworks are a very handy distraction.
Christmas took over from the Winter Solstice, when offerings were made by the Druids involving hanging the bits found inside their victims all over trees. Mistletoe was involved here too but the Druids didn't kiss under it. If a Druid holds up mistletoe, don't close your eyes. Now we still decorate trees but with less, um, organic materials. Again, nothing to do with the birth of Christ. That stable involved no tinsel or advent calendars or jolly fat men dressed in red saying 'Ho ho ho, where's the sherry?' Santa is another bit of the jigsaw we currently call Christmas.
Many of the old pagan festivals were absorbed and overwritten by the new Christians. It's the most efficient way to take over. Rather than browbeat the population with 'our way good, your way bad', they aligned their new religion with the festivals of the old. Gradually, they usurped the meanings of those festivals until finally, the old meanings were all but lost forever.
So the rebirth of the Sun, three days after the Winter Solstice, was replaced with the birth of the Son. The festival of the Spring Equinox became the festival of death followed by resurrection, Easter. In this way the old was not wiped out, but was, in a sense, 'recorded over' like an old VHS tape. The old recording sometimes breaks through the new but for most people, there's not enough left to make sense of it.
Okay. So what? It's in the past, long in the past, and the UK has been generally Christian for a long time. Most of us are happy with that. Even those of us who follow neither the Christian nor pagan ways will be scoffing chocolate eggs and Lindt bunnies soon. We'll have tinsel-coated trees with glass baubles in our Christmas living rooms and many would be horrified to know what those actually represent. Even those of us who are not religious will still look forward to the festivals.
Even those who are not religious will cry out in fury when Christmas is renamed Winterval. It's not the religion we defend, but the festival. The tradition. The British way of life. This is how it is. This is how it has always been. We don't want it to change. Somewhere, deep in our psyche, we know what that renaming means.
Those councils don't 'ban Christmas'. Their answer is always the same. Christmas is still there, it's just that now it's included in a whole load of other festivities. Christmas has not been renamed 'Winterval'. Winterval is an umbrella term for an inclusive set of festivals of all religions.
Ah, but that race memory still stirs in some. The descendants of the pagans have heard this before.
We are not banning your religion. We're just including it in ours. Honest, we aren't trying to take over your festival.
So who is doing this? The Jews? Islam? Hindus? Falun Gong? Sikhs? Feng Shui practitioners? An obscure Scottish gorse-worshipping cult? The Church of the Deadly Bottomgas? Ken Livingstone?
It's worse than any of them. In fact, they are all targets too. They just don't know it yet.
If you want to take down religion in the UK - all religion - and replace it with your own form of control you would not start on the Jews or the Muslims or any of the others. You would start on the majority religion, Christianity. You can rely on many other groups, religious and secular, to help your cause.
Stonewall will rail against Christians but will not attack Islam because Islam also rails against Christians. Stonewall think they have an ally. Islam thinks 'we use these guys to get rid of the big enemy, then we kill these guys too'. So that means Islam is behind it all? Ah, hahahaha. No, Islam is in the chain of the used, not the user.
Those moving in on us have no religion as such, but they are not atheists. Atheists, especially those of the Richard Dawkins Collective, are another used group. They will serve their purpose and be disposed of.
The Righteous, those behind it all, cannot be called atheist. Atheist implies no belief in the existence of any gods. The Righteous do not believe in gods as such, but they believe in deity.
They think they are gods.
Note that Christian hotels are routinely attacked for not allowing gay customers, and for mentioning Christianity in the presence of hysterical Islamic converts, and yet Muslims are never slated for their anti-gay stance. Why? Well, Muslims are a minority and as such, pose no threat to the plan. The biggest religion here is Christianity and if that falls, all the rest will follow. The important thing is that the rest don't realise this too soon.
The EU recently sent out a diary to all schools which included all manner of religious festivals but no Christian ones. An oversight, they said. An oversight? Easter, Christmas, simply overlooked? Does anyone believe that? Sure, they might forget to mark the fifth day of Pentecost but Christmas?
Christians who refuse to recant the Bible's stance on homosexual relationships cannot adopt. Their stance is irrelevant. The child will be in their care until he or she is 16, and can then tell them to go and snog an otter and choose their own life. Do the councils believe that Christians with their own children are unfit parents whose children should be taken from them and given to those who think as directed? Probably. They already think that about smokers and drinkers and fat people. It's only a matter of time.
The BBC's new Inquisitor is to tear apart the Bible, starting with the Creation story. Aimed at Christianity? Sure. There is no mention of any similar dissection of the Bhagavad-Gita, never has been and don't expect one any time soon. However, this destruction of the Christian account of creation also impinges on the jewish and Muslim accounts because... they are the same account. Whoops, an own goal on the way here, Righteous. Well, they are devious schemers, I said they had a plan, I didn't say they were particularly intelligent.
These are Bond villians. They are also Moriarty, Dr. Evil, the Green Goblin. They want to take over the world but have never been able to answer the question 'Why? What the hell for? Once you're in charge, what do you do then?'
It can't be done. Look at all the Dreadful Arnott's controls that have had no effect at all on smoking. The gun ban that lets this happen, and this, and that's just today. They cannot control one country, not even one county, and yet they think they will rule the world. As always, they will fail.
However, they will do some damage on the way. As always, they use incremental steps to set one against another. Smokers are denormalised, drinkers are well on the way and anyone larger than Kate Moss is on the next list. Through it all, the group they most want to take down are Christians. Get rid of that religion, break that faith and you can replace it with your own. Use the minority faiths to bring down the big one, then set those minorities against one another until the final clearup is easy.
If Christianity vanished, do you think Stonewall would be quite so relaxed about Islam? If Islam didn't have a free ride for Christian bashing, would they leave the Jews alone? Once the common enemy is gone, the infighting begins.
Finally, the obvious cards come into play. The blatant moves begin. National No Smokng day coincided with an event in the Christian calendar. Ash Wednesday. Now renamed ASH Wednesday. The new religion ousts the old by taking over its festivals. Same as it ever was.
I am not Christian but this new religion is going to be a hell of a lot worse than the Old Testament atrocities churned up to oppose anyone who mentions current atrocities carried out by non-Christians. The Christianity of this country has been benign, we non-believers have been left alone. Yes, we have. A few words or murmurs of disapproval don't count as oppression. Christianity did not ban smoking and has not banned drinking. Christianity didn't do this.
Even though I am not religious, I see a place for it in human life. Many need to believe in something and to be directed in how to act. Chistianity does not direct them - indeed it expressly forbids them, to attack others. It preaches 'turn the other cheek' to its followers and they do. So many of us were conditioned to hate the Christians even before hate-the-smoker came into play, that many now regard it as normal.
Christians. How many cheeks can you turn? You are now like the pagans you overtook, threatened with replacement.
The difference is, they didn't see it coming. You can.
So what will you do?
