They don’t read poetry like this nowadays. This is the voice of a great upperclass English actress from the previous century, each syllable exquisitely modulated and delivered with crystal clear musicality. Almost an incantation.

  1. So, 15 April 2019, we have word that the War Against Christianity proceeds apace in Paris. I feel surprise that the burning of the cathedral did not occur yesterday. Very surprised, actually. Another milestone in the series of church destruction in France gone totally unreported here in US, Inc. (bankrupt). Then why would I expect the M$M to report same?

    I hold the belief that the War Against Christianity (not one of the great many “isms”, and not congruent with “Catholicism”) is but one of a great many fronts in the War Against Humanity, slow kill and fast, direct kill; poisoning of air, land, and sea; disabling by vaccination the most advanced human faculties. Please, convince me I have erred in this judgement!

    So, onward stalwart souldjears! This is no Crusade. This is about withstanding.

    1. Unfortunately you erred not AD.
      To rewrite history evidence of the past must always be destroyed. The burning of the Alexandrian library two millennia away was the first official recorded history change event (in 3 different historical versions) and the golden calf began to rule the world with the coming birth of “Christianity”. One imagine “organised” religion being filtered out of the NT leaving just bare truth and spiritual guidance – the “Christian world and its current condition” would reinvent itself as whole and true while genuine evil will stick out like a puss filled boil on perfection having lost all power to rule the human “kingdom” at all.
      War Against Christianity I rather would call full front war against creation & humanity itself. Some spirited wise man once said: “Jesus is ideal and wonderful, but you Christians, you are not like him.”
