Is it Islam that is a fraud or is it the people that claim to follow its tennents, but twist and deny what it says in their own book the fraud? Is it the simple farmer in the back hills that prays to Allah five times a day or the ones that try to talk him into stapping on a bomb and murdering people in the name of Allah the fraud?
The Qu'ran from start to finish instructs hatred and violence, Extreem hatred and violence too. You can call that freedom of religion but you can't honestly call it the most merciful!
And you can't honestly call it peace eather~!

Is that a local thing in North T? I was born and raised in the Town of Tonawanda and never heard of it LOL. I bet you could start a website and get followers though.

I posted it as sort of a quasi-rhetorical question.I've read it and the contradictions and falacies in it do make it a bit confusing.

Yeah there's lots of religions out there and I enjoy mine. Let's face it though, out of all the "ISM'S" out there, orgasism remains everyone's favorite :) Like the play on spelling? LOL

Asatru is a folkish religion so according to the jewish dictates of today, the charge of "racist, white supremacists" can not be avoided.
Any religion that the jews/shabbos-goys hate has at least a modicum of truth.
"Racist" is the grand magical spell of the Judeopagan Americanist religion worshiped by the majority of morons in the West.
But alternative religions have their counter word: "JEW!" a spell to reveal your enemy behind his thick wall of cheap rhetoric.
Are you still in the Lansdale area? I host a monthly Asatru meetup.

i can't actually believe that Asatro is amongst those five!
i mean.. probably never heard of?
i think it should be probably HAVE heard about! even if it just is the slightest thing.
i mean, people should know that Thor was the thunder God!
it's kinda like the Greek mythology! if people (probably) never heard of Asatro, then people (probably) shouldn't have heard about the Greek mythology either!
wheren't you people taught religion in schools?!
I am a practicing Asatruar who went to 13 years of Catholic school. They taught us 'classical mythology' but not Northern. The reason for this, I suspect, is that if they teach Northern Mythology the people they converted by the sword will realize just how much of their ancestral culture was appropriated into Christianity. Yule, Easter, and so on.

A neo-paganism, sort of,?

Very suited to the Northern /European hemisphere as an alternative to those systems from other climes. The temprement of a people has to gel with any religion. It's a collective conscious /history thing I believe
