I once presented a multimedia show with Freeman Fly and Rex Church of the Church of Satan demonstrating the various pentagrams, obelisks and strange architecture in Washington DC. There are imagery and simulacrum of George Washington posing as the Satanic Baphomet and even Uncle Sam looks very much like the Goat’s head used in satanic imagery.
But that does not change the jingoistic and nationalist zeal of most Christians.
I know that I will be unpopular amongst the Christian “freedom fighters” by saying that there is no such connection between Christianity, religious freedom, or anything like that which is exaggerated at the pulpit and on Fox news every Fourth of July.
The whole “United States was meant or has always been a Christian nation” myth irritates me because it is always an argument that has absolutely no truth to it and yet it is recited as fact every Independence day by uppity Christians who worry that they will be kept from the parades and the potato salad if we allow godless people to take control of anything American.
Well please eat your potato salad and choke down another Bratwurst because I am going to give you information that for many will sit with them like undercooked barbecued Chicken.
The first Colonists, NOT AMERICANS were actually leaving Europe because of religious Persecution.
What we understand now is that they were intolerant Protestants that were escaping Christian persecution. They were fanatics that no one liked and so they were forced to leave. Now let us make something clear, they weren’t the founding fathers. They were just people coming to the new world from Spain, Holland and Great Britain.
The first inhabitants of what we call America were most definitely not Christians. They were American Indians. They were considered savages by the Protestants. And we all know what Colonizing Christians do with savages.
They share with them their so called Christian values and then kill them.
So for the record Right wing Christians forget to mention that the original Christians that came to America slaughtered American Indians. So I guess we can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that the colonists were not the founding fathers. That those original colonists were some defect in history spreading their murderous version of Christianity.
History states that The Spanish founded the first European colony in North America at St. Augustine, Florida, in 1565. In 1607, the London Company founded the Jamestown colony.
In 1620 the Mayflower lands at Plymouth Rock, Massachusetts and its colonists formed the Mayflower Compact to establish a form of local government. Now the Mayflower Compact was truly Christian and their entire purpose was to break away from the Church of England. Well, it seems that when Christians become intolerant of beliefs they tend to fight amongst themselves and so thus we see the beginning of the Puritan movement.
The Puritans were a real ugly and evil lot. Just an another smear of blood and intolerance, on pages of our History.
In 1636 Roger Williams founded Providence and Rhode Island because his fellow Christians banished him from Massachusetts because he had an idea that was “new and dangerous ” he called for religious and political freedoms, including separation of church and state.
Now I would like to know how Christians who continue to say that this country was founded on Christian principles can deny the history of religious intolerance that was plaguing the North American continent before our founding fathers were even born?
Providence became a haven for many other colonists fleeing religious intolerance. In 1646, the Massachusetts general court approved a law that made religious heresy punishable by death! Once again we are asking where the Christian values begin to play into the founding of this The United States of America.
By 1692 God and Christ were all but a footnote as Massachusetts rounds up suspects accused of witchcraft. They are arrested and imprisoned. Some were burned and others drowned or Crushed to death under the weight of heavy stones. These intolerant Christians accused one-hundred-fifty people of their own citizens of being witches and they executed twenty of them.
In 1700, Massachusetts passes a law ordering all Roman Catholic priests to leave the colony within three months upon penalty of life imprisonment or execution New York also passes a similar law. In 1702, the Anglican Church gets established as the official church in the state of Maryland. In 1706 South Carolina also established the Anglican Church as its official church.
Even Thanksgiving another so called Christian holiday of thanks was never really celebrated in the way we celebrate it now until 1777. Before, it was merely a celebration of the harvest which of course is well rooted in pagan traditions, not Christian traditions.
Rejecting the Pagan harvest, Puritan clerics wanted the traditions celebrated in response to God’s favorable Providence instead of the festival which had pagan overtones.
This is where most Christians get their odd ideas about the United States being founded on Christian Values. They get it from the idyllic nature of fictional Pilgrims coming in peace and establishing a new world where all men can worship without persecution. The romanticism of American Indian and Christian pilgrim is encouraged every year.
The myth of the First Thanksgiving tells us that good Christian Pilgrim families gathered in a pastoral celebration with the American Indians in peace and harmony, thus symbolizing the potential for unity of different ethnic backgrounds.
Even though it never happened that way.
The Pilgrims are the Christian spiritual ancestors of the same intolerant breed who make up silly stories about how the United States was formed using Christian values.
All of this religious fighting and intolerance occurred well before the establishment of the United States.
European settlers began to notice how these religious fanatics were thwarting the cause of freedom. By the mid-1750s, the colonists who would later become the founding fathers began to introduce heretical ideas and the rebellion was brewing.
Benjamin Franklin published Poor Richard’s Almanac, and he begins to criticize Christian principles and hypocritical preachers. His almanac also uses astrology and other forms of divination that did not meet up with approval from the governing hierarchy. With the nom de plume of Silence Dogood, Franklin seizes the opportunity to speak out about injustices being predicated by the oppressive Christian governors.
He wrote in the Almanac that people ought to speak well of their government when it is deserving but to do public mischief without people hearing of it are the prerogative of tyranny. People need to be trustees for the administration of the government. In ancient Rome freedom of speech was a symptom and effect of good government. The guilty dread free speech because it exposes them to light. When the bad Roman emperors took away liberty, freedom of speech was also lost. He preached rebellion against the Christian stronghold. Franklin was a Founding Father. He had no love for Christianity.
More and more Americans become wary of religious and political impositions in their life. In January of 1776, Thomas Paine published “Common Sense” in Philadelphia which criticized King George III’s allegiance to the religious Monarchy, and argues for American independence. It becomes an instant best-seller.
In his later writings such as “Age of Reason,” Paine was animatedly attacking the Christian power elite for trying to establish a Christian government in the colonies. Paine attacked Christian Scripture and corruption of the Christian Church and criticized its efforts to acquire political power. Paine advocated reason in the place of revelation leading him to reject miracles and to view the Bible as an ordinary piece of literature rather than as a divinely inspired text.
Remember now, all this was happening before we saw the emergence of the Declaration of Independence and the Establishment of the United States. The feeling of many of the colonists was anti religious Monarchy, anti-institutionalized religion, and anti taxation.
The colonists wanted to break away from established religion, or official state religion so that they could worship how where or whatever they chose. They were not all Christian and the very idea of the state establishment of religion during the drafting of the Declaration of independence is ignorance of history.
The Founding Fathers were conspirators against the religious Monarchy, Christian institutions and the unnecessary taxation from the crown. If they were doing the same actions today, in this era of time they would be labeled homegrown fanatical terrorists. If they showed up on Oprah, or Nightline speaking of their philosophies they would be asked to apologize to the various Christian groups and to the Government for urging people to not pay their taxes.
They would be called “tea baggers” a gay euphemism for sucking testicles, “racists” because anyone who questions a black President’s policies today is judged that way by uppity self-loathing liberals and “troublemakers” by hack jingoistic right wing nationalists that are just as bad if not worse than the left.
As you can tell I am completely fed up with the majority who allow ignorance to rule their divisive arguments to further an agenda that completely polarizes a country that is going absolutely nowhere. It seems that this behavior has clouded the reality that the two sided political game is an illusion to allow the state to take control of confusion and force.
The police state keeps us as one nation under guard. The idea that the United States functions on Christian principles is such a pipe dream that people are willing to hand over everything to their masters fearing that the wrath of God will come if they rebel.
The God or forefathers spoke of in the first few phrases of the Declaration of Independence was not the Judeo Christian God, but a pantheistic god of nature and divine providence. In fact, George Washington was a Pantheist who believed in divine providence. The Declaration reads plainly:
“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume, among the Powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”
It is not the horned god Pan. The God of nature is Not Jesus Christ. The God of nature is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Thomas Jefferson while being raised in the Episcopal philosophies and perhaps baptized Anglican eventually fully rejected Christianity. He had his doubts about God and even though he wasn’t a follower of Christ he respected his moral code. Jefferson and the founding Fathers wanted above all to spotlight moral conduct rather than dogmatic enforcement of Christian doctrine or ‘values.” He even attempted to rewrite the New Testament to remove anything supernatural from the gospels in order to spotlight principles.
That, of course, is anathema to Christians.
Many evangelicals will note that in Proverbs and Deuteronomy that God rebukes those who add or take away from the Word of God. This would, in fact, make Thomas Jefferson, one of our founding fathers a heretic. John Adams was a Congregationalist and was against the evangelism movement. He wound up being a Unitarian. Alexander Hamilton was an agnostic and deist for most of his life.
