The Fourth of YOU LIE: of the Foundation of American Democracy! Daniel Boone, Thomas Jefferson, Davie Crockett, Jim Bowie, Kit Carson, Abraham Lincoln? INDIAN KILLERS!! By Thomas Pearce

In 1992 Native people in KY and allies during the 500th anniversary of Columbus decided to correct local historic monuments to alleged heroes of colonialism in the Ohio Valley. The picture you see above is one example. It was a statue of Daniel Boone at the entrance to? “Cherokee Park”. There are 4 parks in Louisville named after the people driven from this land. Cherokee, Shawnee, Chickasaw, and Iroquois. Of course there are monuments all over this city to Confederate Generals, Indian killers, slave owners, and the like. There are absolutely none to Tecumseh, Blue Jacket, Harriet Tubman, or any native or African-Americans. A couple of streets that is it. So as I was watching Tecumseh’s vision, the PBS special last night, I was reminded of several things that deserve exploring. So once again I am going to  poke holes in “American History” and saw the legs off of statues to genocidal murderers. Sorry.

Holy?, Wholly?, Holey?

 

Lord? I have none, God? I have no one ruler, there is only the river of life and the many spirits that and Almighty? Yes and no?
The river of life if one understands and has a true relation with it is the almighty force of energy that we can draw from. There are traditions not based on dogma and are historically respectful of the earth and all human beings. I hold them up.

Alas, a world polluted with the deeds of those feigning relation, crusading for a “Lord” they have no true relation with? The stories of their “Holy” trinity. their “Wholly” genocidal justifications for murdering millions in the name of their imaginary old man in the sky directing traffic from the sky.
Their assumptions, assertions and actions “Holey” as they clumsily stumbled through the forest and lands of the sacred earth. Showing no understanding or respect for any life or force walking, crawling, or flying.

God as Abuser: Similarities Between the Christian God and Abusive Spouses

Note from Blog author: Although I am not an atheist, Cline’s points here line up with many oppressed non-Christian pagan people’s positions on Christian oppression of non-Christians. So I decided to post this. Also, Cline should have said people who are abused instead of “Women”? The behavior he describes has been witnessed between Parents and children, between LGBT couples, and all abused people. I do not believe that only heterosexual couples endure Christian  oppression within the relationship.

The one point I would add? Those who are abused or wronged are also bound by the insane expectation of Christianity to forgive their abuser, to make amends with their abuser, and to never turn their back on someone who has done whatever they wished in regards to the abused.
