It is not my hope to replace Christianity, only to infuse it with nationalism

German or Mexican nationalism? The world needs to know.

The one with "the white women".  ::)
I'm with the camp of 13 million Americans that believe politicians are, or are controlled by, Reptilians. I think only monks can solve this problem. It doesn't seem right that they prefer to ignore it.

Whatever happened to JamesR, last post I seen of him was something about Gideons. He was kind of interesting.

I took to Facebook and became a full-blown neoreactionary traditionalist progressively honing my rhetoric and pushing the limit to see how explicit I can get with my beliefs in college speeches without getting in trouble. I wrote an essay that is still on display at the very first community college I attended. I dated a couple girls; it did not end well. I am excelling in college and have maintained a 4.0 GPA and perfect grades every semester. Spiritually I would not say that I hate God anymore, although I have come to accept and even make peace with the fact that Christianity, in part due to its own dogmas and in part due to the Church, does not embody the sort of values and beliefs that I hold as an individual. In short, it is not the sort of strong, traditional religion I long for.

So what alternative faiths are you now considering?

None. No faith can replace Christianity. Nor can the train wreck that is atheism. It is not my hope to replace Christianity, only to infuse it with nationalism and throw out the liberal bits about loving your enemies and the like. I have a great deal of respect for syncretism as it exists in East Asian cultures. I would like to see Christianity utilized only insofar as it supports the growth of a strong traditional civilization like in the times of old.
I truly hope you stay around a bit. Oc.net can use a bit of your flavor.  :D
God bless!

LOL! Perfect.  There are few creatures more pathetic than a non-white guy who fetishes the beauty of white women relative to the beauty of women who look like his female relatives.

There's a mountain town a few hours north of me where someone who runs an alt right radio/website empire (as much as such can exist) has posted billboards that say, "Diversity is code for White Genocide." They have a couple of others about protecting white family values.

Someone in the town has either decided to make a counter statement or troll them, and next to or right behind most of those billboards, you'll see signs with pictures of black Jesus saying things like, "All are welcome here."

I like to tell people that I am white genocide incarnate. In my bloodstream are millions of drowned Irish.

Why you gotta be hatin' on Mor's love affair with Rachel like that?

A guy liking a particular white woman is wonderful.  A guy who has swallowed the Eurocentric model of beauty and who thinks that white women in general look better than the women of his own tribe is a sad, self-hating creature.  I'm sure Mor realizes that there are beautiful women in all "races" and that there are some beautiful South Indian women who outshine plenty of white girls.

I was never impressed with his "wannabe smartest guy in the room" schtick.  And I never had much respect for the little numbskull disciples that hung on his every word and acted like he was some font of wisdom.

In a perfect world, yes, but in the real world, she's basically gotta not be dead.

It is not my hope to replace Christianity, only to infuse it with nationalism

German or Mexican nationalism? The world needs to know.

The one with "the white women".  ::)



LOL! Perfect.  There are few creatures more pathetic than a non-white guy who fetishes the beauty of white women relative to the beauty of women who look like his female relatives.

Especially when they froth at the mouth at the thought of white women dating non-white men, because WHITE GENOCIDE!!!1!

There's a mountain town a few hours north of me where someone who runs an alt right radio/website empire (as much as such can exist) has posted billboards that say, "Diversity is code for White Genocide." They have a couple of others about protecting white family values.

Someone in the town has either decided to make a counter statement or troll them, and next to or right behind most of those billboards, you'll see signs with pictures of black Jesus saying things like, "All are welcome here."

I like to tell people that I am white genocide incarnate. In my bloodstream are millions of drowned Irish.

Does your ancestry include potato blight or the North Atlantic?

Good people,

Let your nostalgia in this thread be of a less attacking, more irenic nature, for lo! We are in Other Topics.

I split off the thread from about the point I felt the conversation became too serious (and too harsh) for this hot locale, because I don't want to frighten off the tourists. The new thread is in the urban jungle of Politics. If you don't have access to Politics and would like to have access, once you have completed a 40 day period of desert fasting, you must donate 10 gallons of blood, after which point you may PM Fr. George and ask him for access to the private fora. Applicants who include a dissertation on the wonders of Cleveland baseball will be moved to the top of the list.

By the powers vested in me through this fine website, I hereby unlock this thread. Thank you for choosing OC.net, and please come again!

Dear Moderator,

When I left this thread this morning (6:30 am my time) it was more or less irenic in tone with some reference to the plight of Maria which I agreed with. I will never subscribe to a private fora, so please summarize why this decision was made.

I am now going to respond to a post that Asteriktos made, that is now hidden, but very important to me that I need to do so now.

Dear Asteriktos,
If you hadn't noticed, I have  difficulties with expressing what I feel. My mind wanders based on my emotions so it is always difficult to center myself on the task at hand. I do not know how many times you posted in this thread, but your initial post clearly summarized  what I feel. In regard to Orthonorm, he also pulled his punches against me. But more importantly, and perhaps to upset the apple cart, he  pointed me towards the sacrificial aspect of being a Christian. He put into a few words why Quietmorning was my example that I should follow.

I fail to see why some people feel the need to engage anyone.  No one is required to respond to anyone.  That applies to everyone, whether orthonorm or a moderator.  Sure, if you fail to respond to a moderator upon request, there can be consequences.  So what?

Thread locked pending moderator review.  But first, a word from our rules:

Quote
All appeals to be conducted via PM, and in the proper order, as outlined below.

This procedure should be followed in all cases, and involves as its first step communicating directly with the person who issued the warning to you (or performed some other action in an official capacity, like moving or locking a topic you started).  If you choose to skip steps within the appropriate pathway, then you also give up your right to appeal the decision to anyone further (i.e. if you don't like the answer you get, that's tough).

Opus,

For the sake of keeping threads on target and and for peace, we have in place some Rules and guidelines re: discussing/questioning moderatorial actions, and how that ought to be done. Mor Ephrem quoted a portion from the Rules up above. Another relevant portion from the Rules:


Quote
Please respect the mod/admin staff -- The moderators and administrative staff of oc.net keep this place running tidy.  While you don't have to agree with a particular decision they make, we ask that you at least respect it publicly.  Do not complain about forum moderation, or the specific official actions taken by the moderators, global moderators, or administrators, on the forum.

I understand that this policy may seem unnecessary or over the top, but we are a small staff trying to manage many users who all have unique opinions and outlooks, and it is impossible to make everyone happy all of the time. Responding to someone's concerns or objections via PM not only keeps threads from stuttering and stalling out every time a mod has to step back in and defend their actions, it also aids in keeping habitual agitators from being disruptive to the overall peace of the forum. "Let all things be done decently and in order" is just good advice, in all applications.

Now. I do not think that you are a habitual agitator, to be clear. But since I have recently had to warn folks over this issue, I wanted to take the extra time in this case to elaborate. And while I do not believe you are an "agitator", I have to be consistent in how I apply the Rules, so I am issuing you a warning of +15 points. If you wish to appeal or question or protest this decision, you may do so by PMing me directly.

As for the remainder of your post which responds to Asteriktos, I will let it stand since I feel it is both applicable to the OP on its own merits, regardless of what comment prompted you to write it, as well as being suitable to the tone of Other Topics.

All- the point of this thread is to discuss members we wish still posted here. Clearly, there will be discussion that develops from that organically. If this thread continues to become a place to resurrect the dormant and banned in order to slam them and each other, it will end up locked. If you would like clarification on any of this, or have concerns or objections re: my moderating, or would like to write me a poem, I invite all and sundry to PM me. Thank you.

O Forum Software, Prone to Crash, which enables all of our shenanigans, and doth keep a record of our foolishness in perpetuity, and doth provide us with diversion from analog tasks: Do thou cleanse the transgressions of thy posters, for, unable to bear the burden of the day and the burning of their fingers, they have come to a second unlocking of the thread.

I liked orthonorm but I like you too antonios. Orthonorm welcomed me when I was strange though I still am  and saw the good in me when there didnt appear much good
It seems you both had problems to let go your problems with things and get along
I don’t know why orthonorm became very suspicious at the end of the moderators care for other members I also was but they have proven to not be altogether be unsympathetic and have hope to listen to our problems when addressed properly
Sorry to exaggerate my problems with moderators I didn’t have problem they were very kind but maybe he was worried they would become strict. I just have problems with authority which I think I am getting better with

Ill have to check my Facebook, I dont think he has posted anything in years though. Probably too busy being a philosophy professor somewhere in New Mexico. 8)

I love Papist though and wished he posted again. Heck I wish it was 2011 here. All these social media sites and reddit destroyed internet foruming.

Yesh. Because whatever else you might say about him, his threads were always, always, entertaining.

Sometimes I see an old post of his and miss that fellow.
