I want to elaborate on a concept first briefly mentioned in the Geopolitics page:
regarding mainstream Christianity, based on the popular conversations sparked by the positions recently taken by Francis on various social issues:
While Francis is the one who has attracted the most attention for his lukewarm position on sexual preferences, this is not just a Catholic issue; for example, Desmond Tutu has been expressing similar sentiments:
This is only one issue out of many that indicate a broadly left-moving trend within Catholic and Protestant church leadership which has increasingly disappointed right-leaning existing Judeo-Christians while encouraging left-leaning people who might be newly interested in Christianity. On the other hand, among the ZC/BS circles I have noticed a reactionary attempt to promote Orthodox churches as “Christianity for right-wingers”, and hence pushing Orthodox positions on various issues even more unambiguously to the right in order to fit this image. If this keeps up, what seems eventually likely is a new schism of Christianity between Orthodoxy on one side and Catholicism/Protestantism on the other, based on different views on social issues.
This presents a great opportunity firstly for Catholics and Protestants to reunite, and secondly – if we Aryanists are able to play our cards skillfully – for them to reunite as Gnostic Christians. The ideological problem faced by Catholics and Protestants alike is that their existing theology doesn’t really allow them to be left-leaning. This is something they can ignore momentarily, but not indefinitely. Sooner or later the honest intellectuals among them will have to face their own theology, and have to admit that the Orthodox positions on social issues are the ones consistent with a scripture that includes the Tanakh (and, more fundamentally, with the worship of a creator god). At this point these post-Catholics/post-Protestants will have to make a choice: go with scripture and convert to Orthodoxy, or go with their hearts and demand a new theology. At this point, if no Christian theology is available, they will either switch to a different religion altogether, or abandon religion entirely. But if at this point we are well prepared to present to them the Gnostic narrative, then we stand to potentially gain a billion or more people into our extended camp all of a sudden.
From the beginning, we have defined the two fundamentally oppositional ideologies within Christianity as Judeo-Christianity (right-hand-path) vs Gnostic Christianity (left-hand-path):
The strategy I am now proposing is simply to set things up so that, in the real world, this dichotomy superposes neatly over the neo-Orthodox (right-leaning) vs post-Catholic/post-Protestant (left-leaning) schism that I predict will occur in the future. In this way, we need not bother with converting one person at a time to Gnosticism, but instead can rapture entire churches and entire denominations at once.
Look at the graph on this article:
I reckon that a skillful presentation of Gnosticism delivered at a good timing (e.g. as the religious dimension of an inspiring True Left political movement with charismatic leadership) could – in a best-case scenario – pick up most of the “Religious Progressive” category, perhaps half of the “Religious Moderate” category and even a significant fraction of the “Nonreligious” category.
If we want to try this out, we will need entryists into churches throughout the currently Catholic/Protestant world, and at the same time the formation of a group to standardize precisely what beliefs we are promoting. Contact us if you are interested:
This does not mean we are in any way giving up on the Orthodox world. In a private discussion with Anthony, we discussed the possibility of developing an upgraded, anti-anarchist, pro-militarist revival of Tolstoyanism to compete against the Orthodox church in Russia. Aryanists in Russia who like the sound of this idea should also contact us.
