I interrupt the usual flow of ideas for this special bulletin. Pope Benedict the meaningless Roman numeral has set a new papal record for pinning my bullshit meter all the way to the right. In a speech yesterday, he referred to “Europe’s Christian roots.” Europe’s roots are pagan. They will always be pagan, no matter how much history intervenes. Christianity did not “take root” in Europe, it was forced upon it by the simple expedient of periodically slaughtering any group that refused to adopt it. Christianity’s roots are in the Middle East. Beyond the fact that Ye-shua /Iasus/Jesus was born and lived there, Christianity came to Europe through Byzantium, which is now ironically the Islamic nation of Turkey. No amount of wishful thinking or revisionist history will change these facts except in the minds of the hypnotized. I now return you to your regularly scheduled blogs.
