The Church Don’t Need No Special Protection

14

Let’s wind the clocks back a few thousand years.

“Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where there was a synagogue of the Jews. 2 And Paul went in, as was his custom, and on three Sabbath days he reasoned with them from the Scriptures, 3 explaining and proving that it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead, and saying, “This Jesus, whom I proclaim to you, is the Christ.” 4 And some of them were persuaded and joined Paul and Silas, as did a great many of the devout Greeks and not a few of the leading women. 5 But the Jews were jealous, and taking some wicked men of the rabble, they formed a mob, set the city in an uproar, and attacked the house of Jason, seeking to bring them out to the crowd. 6 And when they could not find them, they dragged Jason and some of the brothers before the city authorities, shouting, “These men who have turned the world upside down have come here also, 7 and Jason has received them, and they are all acting against the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, Jesus.” 8 And the people and the city authorities were disturbed when they heard these things. – Acts 17”

These early Christians had no power, no money, no votes, no influence, and most importantly, no social media. This was not the slightest hindrance to them, as they proceeded to overrun the Roman Empire while treading on the toes of virtually everyone who had a financial, social, emotional or sexual stake in the existing societal status quo. Furthermore, they did so with an ideology that placed virtually infinite temporal liability on its adherents while promising absolutely no temporal advantages of any nature.

I mean, what happened?

The Church is in a state of abject decline. It is possible to point to a wide variety of symptoms, but the only possible explanation is that, at some point, our balls did indeed drop off. Feminism is cancer, but most women can’t fight their way out of a paper bag; if men with balls had decided to stop feminism, they most assuredly could have done so. You can blame the Jews, but Jews have never been more than a tiny minority in our societies; if men with balls had decided to stop their alleged Bolshevist tendencies, they could have done so easily. You can blame the pill or the welfare state or the state or the constitution or the FUCKING NON-WHITE MALES or maybe even the FRIKKING GAY FROGS, but the truth is that men with balls could have put a stop to any of these things at any time.

Adam Piggott can blame the lack of speech regulations for the decline and argue against the ideal of free speech, but the Church completely crushed the Roman Empire in a culture war with all the speech regulations stacked against them. The fact that speech regulations are stacked against us now is not to blame for the decline. No piece of legislation is worth the paper it’s printed on. Laws are only as strong as the men with balls who enforce them. If a civilization lacks men with balls, then no amount of legislation can protect it from invasion at the hands another ideology and/or race of men who haven’t completely forgotten how to sacrifice themselves for a perceived greater and higher calling.

Also – if our current predicament is, as Piggott argues, due to the church having “not been protected from malicious speech for over 50 years”, precisely what anti-speech laws were in place before 1970 to protect the church? Was the existence of such laws completely scrubbed from the history books to such an extent that someone as literate as I could be entirely unaware of it? Are we really to believe that the repeal of such laws would not be a cultural milestone incessantly celebrated and memorialized by ‘our’ gAyBC? Or is it the case that Piggott is surreptitiously manufacturing history on an ad hoc post hoc basis? Either way, I would like to know.

    Adam l am Adam. Lost in Lala land in that argument gambling with Pascal with sweet pressure of sweating precipitation.

    But the early Christians really believed in an afterlife,that they would be rewarded for their suffering, that they were living in the ‘last days’ and the Apocalypse was imminent. The majority were low status and had little to lose as you mention. They were resentful and Christianity promised self-esteem, self-righteousness and a sympathetic community. For the lowliest, it offered better material conditions too.

    These circumstances simply do not exist today. The Church of the early Christians is incompatible with our circumstances. I’d argue that other Western traditions such as Stoicism may serve us better, and even other traditions of Christianity, not the Liberal Church that prevails today. If you really want to fix things, go for White Sharia (only half kidding).

      Christianity is entirely destructive to whatever pre existing self esteem you might have to start with. Christianity only offers self esteem if you already have none of it. To everyone else, Christianity offers to give you back some self esteem after destroying what you already have. That’s a tough sell to all but the most downtrodden, which is why Christianity spreads more easily among the downtrodden.

      Similar story with self righteousness. Similar story with community.

        I agree mostly, but you don’t tear out all the weeds at once before replacing it with something more preferable, otherwise you will lose all your soil. Christianity is what it is, but at the moment, only it and a resurgent nationalism is what is keeping the soil of the west together. I do think thought the key to a true Christian revival in Europe belongs with its eastern states, who ironically were under the heel of Bolshevism for so long, that they never went soft.

    Christianity needs a militarized arm. Crusader 2.0 would be a good start.

    • Micaiah

      Christianity overran the Roman Empire without a militarized wing. Not saying you’re wrong, but I don’t see why you’re right.

        To wipe out Islam and take back what was once Christian lands. Also to dull the belief that Christians should only ever be passive and let perversion reign unchecked.

        • Jonathan

          I’ve no desire to have war with Muslim nations, just keep them out of ours. It’s the rot inside our countries that are bringing them here. It’s a shame that places like the Russian Republics that are Caucasian are Islamic, but hopefully they can be turned back to the Orthodox Church peaceably.

          And banging on about bombing Iran is just supporting Zionism.

      • Jonathan

        Overran it and pushed it into the Dark Ages, you mean?

  • Jonathan

    I’m sorry, but Western Christianity is rotten to the core.

    The Roman Catholic church now practically aids and abets the Muslim invasion of the West, the Mexican invasion of the USA, is up to its eyes in importing ‘refugees’ for profit. John Paul II kissed the Koran and prayed in mosques and do I have to even mention the antics of this current pontiff?

    The Western sandstone protestant churches (Anglican, Uniting, Presbyterian, et al) are of full raving rainbow flag waving apostates or outright Marxists and Islamophiles like Rod Bower.

    The US, UK and Australian Pentecostal and Baptist churches are raving Zionists who want war with Iran to bring on the Coming of the Lord and demonise Russia for banning their brand of McDonaldised, Zionist “Christianity”.

    Apart from the Catholic Church in places like Poland or eastern Europe, if you want to hitch a ride with Jesus, I think the Eastern Orthodox churches are the only ones that have not been corrupted by cultural Marxism and sodomites. The role the Russian Orthodox Church has played with Putin in the christian, nationalist restoration of Russia is the best example.

    Anyone care to disagree?

    • Repeal fake marriage

      Depressingly, no, I don’t think I can disagree with you.

    • Jai_Normosone

      The only thing I disagree with what you say is the start.
      NEVER apologise for expressing your opinion.

  • Mattys Modern Life

    This is a good article, men need to stand up and take back our civilisation.

    If that means knocking a bunch of brainwashed females off their perches and refusing to apologise then so be it, they need to be held to account.

    Feminism is destroying the West and it needs to end pronto.

    • Jai_Normosone

      And therein is the problem….
      There are men in this society and there are “men” (ie: the pretenders who are full of bluster and have tendencies that lean to the left).
      There are plenty of genuine men in this country who have honour and want to do the right thing – but they also want a life without the hassles from nagging women and whining death threats from the Antifa faggots (and by “faggots”, I use the South Park definition of “annoying fags”, not “gay fags”… there’s a distinction….)
