A Rant Long Percolating

I believe that there are Ethics; however, you are looking for them in the wrong place if you are looking for them in religion — and I mean ANY religion. This is why so-called “religious” or “spiritual” people can be and are hypocrites. A large part of Ethics concerns respect. Respect is not a part of any universalist creed (one true religion) or non-belief (atheists/humanists making fun of theists). Wars of religion do not show respect. Destruction of antiquities does not show respect. However, respect has not been taught in thousands of years because people believed that religious proscriptions would make good people. This will never happen in a million years. Why? Our ancestors have been forgotten. We are asked to self-exult ourselves, calling each other: Thou Art God, Thou Art Goddess when we are neither. There is emptiness in many souls because they have no values. Yes, I do challenge the valueless society that has been created around us. It is evil. And, it was done by people. It was not done by the Gods. Don’t make excuses. I’ve seen it for over 40 years; yet, it seemed that I felt I was but one voice in the wilderness. It takes more than one person to correct the faulty thinking, the dumbing-down, the let it slide attitude that I see. Meanwhile, I see a bunch of puerile whiners who don’t do anything about their own ignorance and continue to “make things up” as they go along or have a “good drum circle” — my wasn’t that fun. No wonder I don’t want to have anything to do with the greater community. No worship except self-idolatry. No wonder people can’t find Ethics.

Hypocrite Trolls

Yes, I have indeed found out that a Troll can lure a person to comment on his own blog post!  Imagine that.  
I was lured to the blog by an interesting citation in a blog which I normally read, so I had no real warning of what I was to expect.  In the post he was ranting about a lot of garbagey nonsense, especially about us Hellenics and some Heathens (he claims he is Heathen as well as "Luciferian/Demonic").  He was veritably yelling about how our views of piety and miasma had nothing to do with him. The misunderstanding was so rampant that I felt that I would try to answer.
Anyway, after a quick run down of the definitions, which show that the concepts are not "weird" he proceeded to insult me, told me that I had not read his rules for comments (which I must tell you, dear Readers, are quite ridiculous because he only wants yes-people responding).  He does not like at least two people (one of whom is Hellenic, the other Heathen) who I know personally and respect.  I am not sure who else is on his particular s**t list; however, I, for one, would consider anything he says to be untrue. I believe I have been placed on the Persona Non Grata List as well.  **sigh**  Really, though, I am happy because this was really too much drama and too much hate being slung at Hellenics for no reason. 
P.S.  By the way, the reply was so smarmy that he let show his actual knowledge of the subject of the diatribe, thus exhibiting the range of his hypocrisy.  The other more egregious example of hypocrisy, of course, is his so-called interest in the "demonic." Now I know that the Middle East was always a hot-bed for beliefs in demons, so it is difficult to say for certain where exactly it first arose.  However, it is definitely within the "forbidden" religions of J*C*I, especially the named demons.  So, now I know some lovely people who have Marian Cultus along with the rest of their religious practice.  However, somehow this is not OK but his cultus of Lucifer and the demons is?  How do we spell H*Y*P*O*C*R*I*T*E again?
