Have a dagger, find a Caesar!
A special perennial message from me to you for the Ides of March.
I have this written down from back in 2003, but I didn’t note the source of the quote. Where is this from, I wonder?
“Her body, perfect temple of God, represents all the universe. The barrier between heaven and earth crumbles at her word.”
“He was a god of ever-reviving vegetation. Born of a virgin, he died and was reborn annually. The festival began as a day of blood on Black Friday and culminated after three days in a day of rejoicing over the resurrection.”
“Wherever Christian worship of Jesus and Pagan worship of Attis were active in the same geographical area in ancient times, Christians ‘used to celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus on the same date; and pagans and Christians used to quarrel bitterly about which of their gods was the true prototype and which the imitation.'”
“There were various male heroes within Egyptian, Greek, Indian, Roman and other pantheons of Gods, whose role was to be saviors to humanity — much like Jesus. In order to compete with those religions, Christianity would have had to describe Jesus in terms that matched or surpassed the legends and myths of other religions. Otherwise, it would not have survived.”
“Oh, and one more to add, tonight: Oceania has always been at war with Eastasia.” Snap.
