Lon Duquette has a hilarious new video out. Professional occultist Jason Miller asks, Really? We wonder, really what, Jason?
Yes, the song is really, really, funny. Really? Really. Here, everyone, is the video in question, for reals:
We won’t spend any time arguing about whether or not it is morally appropriate or too juvenile to laugh at this song. We won’t bother to explain to Jason the historical basis for the accusations that Lon is making, or the rational underpinning of the attack he is making against Christianity and Christmas in his funny song. That would be sort of pedantic. The song is funny.
Instead, we will simply offer some of the more benign statements from Aleister Crowley on the topic of Christianity in his commentary on Liber AL vel Legis for those who are curious. Click through to see much, much more.
“… the cringing cowardice of the damnation-dodging Christians with their unmanly and dishonest acceptance of vicarious sacrifice, and their currish conception of themselves as ‘born in sin,’ ‘miserable sinners’ with ‘no health in us.'”
“Women under Christianity are kept virgin for the market as Strasbourg geese are nailed to boards till their livers putrefy. The nature of woman has been corrupted, her hope of a soul thwarted, her proper pleasure balked, and her mind poisoned, to titillate the jaded palates of senile bankers and ambassadors.”
“… it is the eyes of ‘Jesus’ — his point of view — that must be destroyed; and this point of view is wrong because of his Magical Gesture of self-sacrifice.”
Finally, here is a video of Christopher Hitchens for those of you itching for even more criticism of Christianity.
