Christian Identity

Christian Identity is a movement that takes anti-semitism to a whole new level by getting around that whole "Isn't the Old Testament just chock full of Jews" thing.

The theory goes that Abel (the butcher) was the child of Adam and Eve, but Cain (the tiller) was the child of Eve and the only person in the Garden who never told a lie. Adam, so the story goes, had the golden hair and glowing complexion of all good-hearted people, as did his true descendants in Ancient Zion. Meanwhile, Cain's sons were just, you know, kicking around in Enoch counting money and making cinema or whatever. The blue-eyed sons of Abraham get kidnapped by Persians and have a series of zany adventures that lead them to settle in Europe. Meanwhile, Khazars and Scythians and so on settle in the Holy Land and half-heartedly imitate the glory days of their proud and idustrious predecesors. Of course, they also build a busy economy based on usury, bespoke tailoring and claiming to have been there all along.

Taking a more literal interpretation, I have discovered a little bit of identity with the Christian culture I inherited: While re-watching Star Wars Episode One: The Phantom Menace, I muttered John 11:35 several times. I have also been known to quote this scripture about halfway up Nanpantan Hill.

Looking up John 11:35 lead me unfortunately to this site;

I realise that my "Can't you just say a damn sentance" style of speaking probably makes it neccessary, but background reading to my posts is almost always to be discouraged. If you lie down with the lion you get up with fleas.

Was that the hill that we chugged up the Day that Sarah's Little Brown Bike Died? I like calling it the Little Brown Bike because it is extremely similar to what President McKinley called Filipinos.

If it was the "Waterloo Sunset" hill, then Headington hill (which Rob now lives atop of).

If it was the "changing gear now makes the chain and wheels fall off" and "Hey, a dirty white van speeding away from an abandoned stretch of night-time forest" hill, then that's probably also Headington Hill, but the south side of it.
