I don't care.

When I tell you that your shitty brothers and sisters in christ are the ones who started attacking me here, and all I do is give them back what they give me, I'll bet you conveniently don't believe that, either.

Admit it; all christian parents threaten their children with hellfire and damnation if they don't believe in jesus. And if you are a christian parent, you are no exception. Fear of eternal punishment is the backbone of your religion. And you christians hate people like me, because you can't scare us into your hateful little death cult.
<quoted text>

I know you don't care, it's blatantly obvious.

I have seen Christians attack you many times, I have no trouble believing that.

I don't know what every Christian parent does, I only know what my extended family members and I do. None of which involves anything resembling threats of fire, hell or damnation. We like our children psychologically and emotionally healthy. Assumption on your part.

I neither own nor am a part of any hateful death cult, grew up in one or two or three though, and was sacrificed by my mother, to be raped repeatedly (by strange men) from the ages of 4 to 12. Great stuff.
I don't hate you and have never even so much as hinted such a thing. I have never tried to scare you or anyone else.

Was it the boots? Were they not good? I thought they were beautiful Italian boots myself but if they're not your style feel free to say so.

Or was it my boring and repetitive statement? Which I should have added only includes 4 or 5 posters here, none of them you or Kitten or G or Wiggles or Scar or many others, who do not constantly repeat themselves.

I am Juicylu btw, changed my name for valid reasons, in case that wasn't clear.

WTF Kait???

With Easter just around the corner, I thought I'd give my annual lesson to the new sheep early. They are not very bright so I think they might need more time to digest this morsel of knowledge.
__________

Easter (part 1)

Easter, like Christmas, is mentioned nowhere in scripture. ACE (Advent Catholic Encyclopedia) admits:

"…it (Easter) is also the oldest feast of the Christian Church, as old as Christianity, the connecting link between the Old and New Testaments. That the Apostolic Fathers do not mention it and that we first hear of it principally through the controversy of the Quartodecimans are purely accidental."

Though the ACE initially tries to obscure the origins of Easter they are obvious, and ACE starts by exposing it’s pagan roots:

"The English term, according to the Ven. Bede , relates to Estre, a Teutonic goddess of the rising light of day and spring, which deity, however, is otherwise unknown, even in the Edda ; Anglo-Saxon, eâster, eâstron; Old High German,ôstra,ôstrara,ôstrarûn; German, Ostern. April was called easter-monadh."

The pagan roots of Easter are verified by the Encyclopedia Britanica:

"The English word Easter, which parallels the German word Ostern, is of uncertain origin. One view, expounded by the Venerable Bede in the 8th century, was that it derived from Eostre, or Eostrae, the Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring and fertility. This view presumes—as does the view associating the origin of Christmas on December 25 with pagan celebrations of the winter equinox—that Christians appropriated pagan names and holidays for their highest festivals."

How much more obvious can it be? First we must ask why a Christian festival is named after a Teutonic Goddess. This is yet another example of mixing paganism with Christianity. This is also a blatant example of violating the fourth command:

“You have no other mighty ones against My face.
Shemoth (Genesis) 20:10

Flaunting a Teutonic goddess in His face by attributing a festival in her name to the resurrection of Jesus certainly qualifies as a clear violation of this command. In addition, she is called the goddess of the “rising light of day“(The Sun). Again we must be reminded of His attitude toward sun worship; He destroyed His own chosen people for this practice (Ezekiel ch.8&9)

Another problem with Easter and claims of the Church that it is a celebration of the resurrection Jesus is the date. We know from prophecy that the Messiah is the substitute for the Passover Lamb, and He had to be sacrificed according to Torah, on the day of Passover:

In the first month (Nisan), on the fourteenth day of the month, between the evenings, is the Passover to the Lord.
Wayyiqra (Leviticus) 23:5

Even the ACE doesn’t dispute this:

"The connection between the Jewish Passover and the Christian feast of Easter is real and ideal. Real, since Christ died on the first Jewish Easter Day; ideal, like the relation between type and reality, because Christ's death and Resurrection had its figures and types in the Old Law, particularly in the paschal (Passover) lamb, which was eaten towards evening of the 14th of Nisan. In fact, the Jewish feast was taken over into the Christian Easter celebration;…"

However, the date of Easter is not on the date God ordained. Why? ACE tries to obscure the reason, but a little research will reveal the true reason; rabid antisemitism. According to ACE the reason for the date change is:

"Apart, however, from the Jewish feast, the Christians would have celebrated the anniversary of the death and the Resurrection of Christ. But for such a feast it was necessary to know the exact calendar date of Christ's death. To know this day was very simple for the Jews; it was the day after the 14th of the first month, the 15th of Nisan of their calendar. But in other countries of the vast Roman Empire there were other systems of chronology…"

Easter (part 2)

Why was it important to make the date comply with other systems of chronology? God set the date as 14 Nisan, and the church was fully aware of this. After applying some computational and verbal gymnastics, ACE goes on to say:

"Because the Sunday after 14 Nisan was the historical day of the Resurrection, at Rome this Sunday became the Christian feast of Easter. Easter was celebrated in Rome and Alexandria on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox…"

It was apparently more important to conform to the customs and dictates of Rome than the word of God. This should not be surprising since the prophets of God predicted as much. The prophets Isaiah and Daniel gave the reasons for the final destruction of man:

"For the earth has been defiled under its inhabitants, because they have transgressed
the Torot (Teachings), changed the law, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore a curse shall consume the earth, and those who dwell in it be punished. Therefore the inhabitants of the earth shall be burned, and few men shall be left."
Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 24:5-6

and:

"And the ten horns are ten sovereigns from this reign. They shall rise, and another shall rise after them, and it is different from the first ones, and it humbles three sovereigns, and it speaks words against the Most High, and it wears out the set-apart ones of the Most High, and it intends to change appointed times and law, and they are given into its hand for a time and times and half a time.
Daniel 7:24-25

Since the God (God) of Israel established the date of Passover, changing the date is certainly an example of transgressing the Torah by changing the law, breaking the everlasting covenant, and changing the appointed times of the Most High. Besides conforming the date to fit existing pagan festivals, the anti-Semitic reason is found in ACE and in the cannons of the Council of Nicaea, which was called by Constantine. ACE says:

"The First Council of Nicaea (325) decreed that the Roman practice should be observed throughout the Church. But even at Rome the Easter term was changed repeatedly. Those who continued to keep Easter with the Jews were called Quartodecimans (14 Nisan) and were excluded from the Church."

Those who followed the Jews and celebrated the Passover on the date established by God were excluded from the Church, and the Synodal Letter at the council of Nicaea states:

"We further proclaim to you the good news of the agreement concerning the holy Easter, that this particular also has through your prayers been rightly settled; so that all our brethren in the East who formerly followed the custom of the Jews are henceforth to celebrate the said most sacred feast of Easter at the same time with the Romans and yourselves and all those who have observed Easter from the beginning.
Wherefore, rejoicing in these wholesome results, and in our common peace and harmony, and in the cutting off of every heresy…"

Obedience to Constantine and Rome was more important than to God. The council even goes as far as to call celebrating Passover on the date establish by the God of Israel heresy!

Though I do not believe any further proof of the whoring of Passover by the Church is necessary, I will include a brief list of additional pagan practices of Easter listed by ACE:

Easter (part 3)

Risus Paschalis
This strange custom originated in Bavaria in the fifteenth century. The priest inserted in his sermon funny stories which would cause his hearers to laugh (Ostermärlein), e.g. a description of how the devil tries to keep the doors of hell locked against the descending Christ. Then the speaker would draw the moral from the story. This Easter laughter, giving rise to grave abuses of the word of God, was prohibited by Clement X (1670-1676) and in the eighteenth century by Maximilian III and the bishops of Bavaria

Easter Eggs
Because the use of eggs was forbidden during Lent, they were brought to the table on Easter Day, coloured red to symbolize the Easter joy. This custom is found not only in the Latin but also in the Oriental Churches. The symbolic meaning of a new creation of mankind by Jesus risen from the dead was probably an invention of later times. The custom may have its origin in paganism, for a great many pagan customs, celebrating the return of spring, gravitated to Easter.

The Easter Rabbit
The Easter Rabbit lays the eggs, for which reason they are hidden in a nest or in the garden. The rabbit is a pagan symbol and has always been an emblem of fertility

Men and women
On Easter Monday the women had a right to strike their husbands, on Tuesday the men struck their wives, as in December the servants scolded their masters. Husbands and wives did this …. In the northern parts of England the men parade the streets on Easter Sunday and claim the privilege of lifting every woman three times from the ground, receiving in payment a kiss or a silver sixpence. The same is done by the women to the men on the next day. In the Neumark (Germany) on Easter Day the men servants whip the maid servants with switches; on Monday the maids whip the men. They secure their release with Easter eggs. These customs are probably of pre-Christian origin

The Easter Fire
The Easter Fire is lit on the top of mountains (Easter mountain, Osterberg) and must be kindled from new fire, drawn from wood by friction ; this is a custom of pagan origin in vogue all over Europe, signifying the victory of spring over winter. The bishops issued severe edicts against the sacrilegious Easter fires , but did not succeed in abolishing them everywhere.

All of these abominations were carried out with the knowledge and often the approval of the Church. I could go on because there are so many more links of this feast to paganism, but I will leave it to the reader.

The beast Daniel speaks of in 7:24-25 is the one the Christians call the system of the anti-Christ, but should actually be called the anti-Messiah. Constantine The Great, as he is called by Christians, changed the law and times established by the God of Israel, and mixed pagan worship with Christianity. He became the beast that brought about this system, and turned the Church into the “Whore of Babylon” that John spoke of in the book of Revelation.
__________

This is posted especially for the dullard Christian who, a few pages back, claimed there was no paganism in Christianity. You know who you are, so suck on this as you, your family, and your Christian friends go off to Church on the 31st to worship the pagan deity Estre, the Teutonic goddess of the rising light of day and spring, under the guise of Christs' resurrection.

Now you can't give the excuse to your god that you didn't know when he comes back to beat your ass for harlotry. Why? Because ol' AntiC told ya'.
