Here’s the weird thing about a post-Christian Christendom

Recommended Posts

About 10 years ago, psychologists Joe Henrich, Steven J. Heine and Ara Norenzayan at the University of British Columbia pointed out something odd: Virtually all research psychology studied only the countries they dubbed WEIRD: Western, Educated, Industrialized, Rich, Democratic.

 

Speaking of which, they could suggest, too, that an epidemic of loneliness and deaths of despair might be what you’d expect from a society that reified the individual without stopping to consider that humans were neither created nor evolved to be truly self-sufficient. All in all, one can make a worryingly persuasive case that even the most militantly secular among us would be better off if we were at least a little more normal and slightly less WEIRD.

Christianity tries to use a Jewish bachelor as the foundation of morality. Not going to work.

I prefer Putin's speech on post-liberalism and how it has failed Europe.  It has created CUCK-ism.

 

Nationalism and populism will rule the future.

 

It cant be stopped

If Liberals were half as smart as they think they are they would not be liberal.

 these views are coloured by the american Sanhedrin christian experience...Most Christians in the u.k and western Europe of a left leaning or socialist leaning more in line with Jesus than the Paulian patriarchal church..As austerity from the 2008 is still with us ( u.s has the cushion of the magic money tree of the international currency tree so do not feel the full effect of the great recession)..the churches of all persuasion are the main conduits for the food banks ..they are doing a great job !! with it has come the great change of acceptance of high female clergy ...the head of the high Anglican church is the queen and she has done a great job of encouraging the female influx into the church..The Megan Markel effect is amazing in contrast to trumps royalty !..  The pope himself has started a reform process that will elevate women to a greater role in the future of the catholic church..

The amazing transformation of Ireland from a regressive catholic backwater into a radical progressive country is like seeing the Berlin wall come down..in the north the protestant political are now the regressive s and they are losing a generation of their children crossing the barricades and the walls and borders..young northern Irish kids are finding more common ground together than the old boomers failed ways.. also in the u.k we are blessed with a infusion of many religions..for the young who do yoga or Buddhist meditation..In my city ..Manchester U.k  the city of revolution and re-evolution...the industrial revolution , the computer revolution and the liberal socialist revolution..the Quaker revolution.. is a vibrant city with a true melting pot...a city of knowledge and culture vultures...where my city goes the world follows...

  this is true...if you please the Sanhedrin you deny the teachings of Jesus ...might as well do blood sacrifices and pelt women with stones and spit on Samaritans

Uncontrolled liberalism leads to a complete lack of norms, traditions or cohesiveness.  Anomie takes over. 

All forms of deviance are named and given normalcy. This becomes the liberal religion.

 The Sanhedrin? jesus did not commit a crime under roman law.. so it was the ultimate quid pro quo ( latin) to get him crucified !  Yet in the next 60 years the whole known world convulsed ... from Britannia to Germanica  , to the Jewish expulsion and to the burning of the great library of Alexandria , to Cleopatra and the end of the roman republic..extraordinary times..

Speaking of Fake Christians. Trump was caught stealing from his Fake Charity: 

 

 

"So it has come to pass with a New York judge’s ruling Thursday that the president had misused money given to the Donald J. Trump Foundation and, as part of a settlement, will have to pay $2 million in damages. Not only did he use the money for himself, including the purchase of a 6-foot-tall portrait of None Other, but he also filled the board of directors with family members (the usual suspects: Ivanka, Donald Jr. and Eric) and at least one officer, Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg, who didn’t know he was even on the board, according to court documents.

And tried to make women without rights.

 the roman governor in charge was not happy about it..but he reasonably thought that the tradition of releasing one prisoner in pass-over    would see Jesus walk away..but the Sanhedrin interfered with the election with well placed face posters in the crowd and Got a Jewish terrorist released instead ..he washed his hands because a riot was brewing if he denied the right of Passover.. ironically this terrorist that got released was a major player in the wars that led to the Jewish expulsion..
