25. Cultism like that
Edited on Sun Nov-05-06 02:58 PM by Lexingtonian
is just so 2004.

Watching this variety 'Christians' misread and selectively quote the Hebrew Bible to fit their paganisms and occultisms and recapitulations of Ancient World heresies is one of the dreary spectacles of Middle American life. "Justice, justice shalt thou seek" is not the verse they remember when voting for the Party that condones torture, legalizes murder, and annuls and disenforces 14th Amendment rights to the weak, abused, poor, helpless, and wrongfully treated generally.

What ever happened to the Law of Love? The Sermon on the Mount? Why all the lip service to the certainty and memory and teachings of the Christian mystics and saints and Hebrew prophets, and zero actions in their spirit?

The most bizarre thing is how they never look at the theology of the Republican Party in practice. For all the 'seminary training' and whatnot, they can't see how literally that Party manifests the Martin/Levinas triad of dogmas of the occult (The Astral Plane, Doctrine of Analogy, and Omnipotence of the Will)- which the GOP ran on in 2000, 2002, and 2004 respectively. They are blind to that occultisms always see Death as the face of the Deity that is embraced: and what is the GOP running on this election other than a dogmatic need to embrace more death, destruction, and dissolution as a Divine desire?

"Choose life, not death" is a warning in Deuteronomy about a mortal danger in the spiritual life, and it's one these people have blinded themselves to by choosing a political and materialistic misinterpretation of it. But that variety of fundamental error is sadly par for the course, given their pre-Christian pagan worldview.
