I guess it would be hard to spam a thread or a topic if you didn’t know it existed.

Well, before I’m zotted...

Heathens are not Christians, they’re polytheists and follow the gods of their tribe. The traditional religion of their folks.

Heathenry doesn’t have Scriptures. It has lore: From religious texts, to epics of the better folks of their tribe, to ancient texts dealing with how religious worship was originally performed.

Its focus is orthopraxy, not orthodoxy. Do the rites well more than “think the good dogmas”.

As for their libertarian community, the vast majority of Heathens I’ve met were libertarian.

The basic moral code is based on self-reliance, industriousness, loyalty to gods, tribe, family and friends, hospitality, honor and courage.

It doesn’t have a purity code or a concept of “sin”. Some things piss the Gods off, but that’s because they’re traitorous or cowardly, not because they are “impure”.

That moral outlook makes most Heathens predisposed towards libertarian thinking: “Do your own thing, don’t rub it in my face, don’t disrupt my folks and we’ll be fine.” and sorta conservative positions in economics.

I see, to which "tribe" do you belong and who are your "gods"?

Heathenry doesn’t have Scriptures. It has lore: From religious texts, to epics of the better folks of their tribe, to ancient texts dealing with how religious worship was originally performed.

Do any of these ancient texts have names?

As for their libertarian community, the vast majority of Heathens I’ve met were libertarian.

That's not at all surprising.

It doesn’t have a purity code or a concept of “sin”. Some things piss the Gods off, but that’s because they’re traitorous or cowardly, not because they are “impure”.

Do most Heathen Libertarians live in their parents' basements?

Heathens are not Christians, they’re polytheists and follow the gods of their tribe. The traditional religion of their folks.

I know that in South America the traditional religions practiced there included such mundane rituals as human sacrifice. Does the traditional religion of your folks include such rituals?

That moral outlook makes most Heathens predisposed towards libertarian thinking: “Do your own thing, don’t rub it in my face, don’t disrupt my folks and we’ll be fine.” and sorta conservative positions in economics.

I think you are a bit naive about historical heathenism. Most heathen communities were socialistic and paternalistic and the penalty for breaking with the traditions of the paternalistic leaders was, more often than not, execution or exile. Now can you name a historical heathenistic culture that was "Libertarian" and not socialistic or totalitarian?

Viking zotting a Jormungandr, he/she must know their Norse mythology to come up with that handle as well as creating the thread on this website knowing what will happen.



Hope you are amused/got rid of your boredom.

Well then, taking conversely, Mormons message to the world is their salvation is incomplete without Joseph Smith, a passport and some guy conferring the Holy Spirit to another person, by the laying of his hands.

Apparently, Christians cannot get into heaven without the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit can only reside in you by the authority of a man.

Protestants don’t believe in man’s authority. Our relationship with God, The Holy Spirit and Jesus is direct, personal and sacrosanct with no man’s authority to judge us worthy.

It’s not as if LDS doesn’t recognized that and take that message to Christians as possessing a salvation that has further pre-conditions.

What’s with the “non-christian” subforum phrase?

Christians are Christians and you saying that we are not, because of a lost authority, isn’t going to change that.

agreed
Islam is not a religion is a a cult way of thinking of taking over countries to suit their way of life.

it’s sole intention is to take over countries and impose their laws

funny thing is that they have even said so and eyt we still have idiots on the left sticking up for them and now we have muslims groups telling the white house they don’t want someone to pray at a day of prayer.

Hopefully we will get a president who will stand up to islam and say enough is enough, this is how we live and what we talk about and if you do not like that then please piss off

Alright dork.

You need to go back to school.

You really do not possess cognitive thinking skills and your writing is atrocious.

Besides opening a thread calling Christians “non-christians” Isn’t going to go well.

I vote ZOT.

...to which "tribe" do you belong and who are your "gods"? Do any of these ancient texts have names?

I'm late to the party Jormungandr has already been zotted, but for what it's worth here's some info from one of his earlier posts:

I grew up in a Catholic family. I converted to Asatrú at age 14. Told my parents at age 16.

Yeah, they were pissed. They eventually let me be: I was not converting back, and forcing me to go through the motions without actually believing would be pointless in both our faiths.

If you Google (or Bing, if you prefer) Asatrú, you'll find that it's a weird concoction of Norse mythology and Germanic/Druidic paganism, with a dash of racial identity beliefs (think Aryanism). Think of it as "Germanic Hinduism" and you'll get the right idea. The Norse self-identification makes post #22 and post #56 all the more hilarious!

A Viking Hijack!

A famous Viking explorer returned home from a voyage and found his name missing from the town register.

His wife insisted on complaining to the local civic official who apologized profusely saying, "I must have taken Leif off my census."
