108. Slay them before me

Vicharamala began its japa of Nehruvian secularism on Aug 20, 2003, with Vigilonline serving for its pouch. With this 108th and last manka, and with my sincere thanks to Vigil, the telling of the mala is completed.

Nehruvian secularism is essentially the instrument by which Islam and Christianity use nominal Hindus as the frontline in their conquest of the world’s last pagans and our paganism. Nehruvian secularists exploit our dharmic credulity, pretending with missionaries and mullahs that Islam and Christianity are all about compassion, love, tolerance, equality and peace.

They emphatically are not – as example after example in V’mala establishes.

The 107th manka of Vicharamala listed irrefutably the fear, hate and death that Islam’s God ordains for those who do not believe in Him. We pagans are, in Allah’s own divine words, “the worst of created beings” (Koran 98.6). And His Koran – the defining text of Islam, not one word of which can be questioned on pain of death – makes it expressly clear that either we must believe in Him, or we must die.

This 108th and final manka is fittingly about Christianity’s God. Fittingly, because Hindustan today is dominated by an Italian Roman Catholic who, in symbolic significance, at this year’s Ramlila at the capital’s Subhash Maidan, wielded the bow and arrow (front-page photographs,The Hindu, Oct 3, 06). It is Kodandarama, Rama of the Bow, who, in the Ramayana, kills Ravana. Today our nation’s Kodanda is wielded by Sonia Maino Gandhi, and we look to Kodandasonia, Sonia of the Bow, to kill our demons.

But who, for this Kodandasonia, are really our demons? Who, for her God and therefore for her, are these demons? It is we pagans ourselves.

Numerous manka-s of Vicharamala show her call is not vande mataram, but vande matarome.

Now, Ravana (according to Macaulayan mythology) is a “demon” . The abode of demons is Hell. That is to where Allah, the Islamic God, consigns us nonbelievers. That is to where Jehovah, the Christian God, consigns us likewise. For a pagan, there is nothing to choose between the Holy Bible’s Old Testament and the Holy Koran. Both are about the same, differently-named, angry, vengeful God who ordains fear by, hate of and death to nonbelievers. Just check out, as a sample, the Old Testament’s books called Leviticus, Exodus and Deuteronomy.

But, as we pagans are told, “Jesus lives” and “Jesus loves”, and we are preached not the fire and brimstone of Jehovah of the Old Testament but the alleged love and compassion claimed in the New Testament for Jesus, His so-called son.

So, just as V’mala 107 took the text itself of the Koran for its message, this one takes the text itself of the Holy Bible’s New Testament – the part that is about Jesus – for the real message of Jesus*.

And the gospel must first be published among all nations (Mark 13.10). He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned (Mark 16.16). Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved (Acts 4.12). Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day (St John 6.54) For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed (St John 6.55) He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him (St John 6.56).

Who shall not fear thee, O Lord…for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee (Rev 15.4).

To him [Christ] be glory and dominion for ever and ever (Rev 1.6). The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever (Rev 10.15) a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron (Rev 12.5).

…he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one (Luke 22.36) For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me (Luke 22.37). He that is not with me is against me (Luke 11.23, Matt 12.30). But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me (Luke 19.27). I am come to send fire on the earth (Luke 19.49). Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division (Luke 12.51). For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three (Luke 12.52). The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law (Luke 12.53). Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword (Matt 10.34) For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law (Matt 10.35) And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household (Matt 10.36).

Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son (1 John 2.22). He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God (St John 3.18). He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him (St John 3.36). Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation (St John 5.24). I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins (St John 8.24). Of sin, because they believe not on me (St John 8.9).

I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father (St John 8.38)**. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him…he is a liar (St John 8.44).

And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power (Rev 9.3). And it was commanded them that they should…hurt…only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads (Rev 9.4).

If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark on his forehead, or in his hand (Rev 14.9)***. The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God…and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lord (Rev 14.10) And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever; and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whomever receiveth the mark of his name (Rev 14.11).

Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth (Rev 16.1). And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image (Rev 16.2). And the beast was taken…and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone (Rev 19.20). And the remnant were slain with the sword (Rev 19.21). And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire (Rev 20.15).

…the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerors, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone (Rev 21.8). And there shall in no wise enter into it**** any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie; but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life***** (Rev 21.27). Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city (Rev 22.14) For without are dogs, and sorcerors, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie (Rev 22.15).

Such are examples for us pagans of the gospel of the New Testament. The fear, hate and death it preaches are unmistakeable; and the Old Testament is far far worse for nonbelievers. As with the Holy Koran, so with the Holy Bible. The Bible is the defining text of Christianity. It is the duty of the true believer to kill the nonbeliever. We must either believe in Allah/Mohammad or Jehovah/Jesus, or be killed by followers of the duo in whom we choose not to believe. Slay them before me, says Jesus (Luke 19.27).

Fear, hate and death.

The Holy Koran teaches that we pagans are “the worst of created beings”. The Holy Bible preaches that we pagans are dogs, murderers, sorcerors, idolaters, liars – all synonyms for devil-worshippers.

Slay them before me, says Jesus.

Fear, hate and death.

According to Abrahamic mythology, Hell is the abode of the Devil. We pagans are his followers. Merely to exist as a non-believer is an affront, a challenge and a threat to the omnipotence of Jehovah/Allah. Ttherefore, it is the holy duty of the followers of Jehovah/Allah to convert us, so we acknowledge their God as all-powerful, or to eliminate us, so sending us to join in Hell the devil we worship.

Slay them before me, says Jesus.

Fear, hate and death.

It is therefore the Pope of Rome, who speaks on behalf of the Christian God, forecast in 1999 that “a great harvest of faith will be reaped in this vast and vital continent” (http://www.catholicculture.org/docs/doc_view.cfm?recnum=1323 ). How do you reap a harvest? With a sickle or a scythe. You mow down the crop. You kill it.

Slay them before me, says Jesus.

Fear, hate and death.

It is therefore that Western so-called secular governments overtly and covertly support powerful and wealthy evangelical movements to convert us. Ultimately, as their historical record evidences, Christianity and Islam are not about divinity but about worldly power and wealth.

Slay them before me, says Jesus.

Fear, hate and death. The foundational ethos, the essential theme, the bhayanaka rasa of Islam and Christianity. The global historical practice and experience of these two exclusivisms – because they exclude the nonbeliever – is their faithfulness to their defining texts.

“Nowhere, but nowhere, in the world where the exclusivisms have conquered have they allowed significant pagan populations to survive. Nowhere in the territories of these monotheisms is there a meaningful survival of any pre-monotheism, any paganism. There is not one significant exception to this worldwide historical fact.”^ We Hindus^^ are the world’s last pagans. We ignore this empirical truth at our peril.

*I use the Authorised King James Version. Let us not forget that the word “testament” derives from the Latin “testis” which, as any phallus-worshipper knows, is what hangs below the phallus and is as much, or is the even more necessary, part of the male genitals as the phallus. If I recall the story correctly, a man in those bad old testamentary days had to hold his testes as witness he was telling the truth (what a woman held, I do not know, or even whether she could be a witness, since the Bible quite clearly relegates her to inferiority). It is also to be noted that Muslims call their Koran the “Final Testament” ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qur’an ). It will be clear from V’mala that, in the temporal world, I am a firm believer in the application longterm of the golden rule of reciprocity and, as I do in “Proselytisation in India: a pagan’s perspective”, we pagans can and should interpret Christian (and, for that matter, Islamic) mythology as they do our dharma. So, if Shaivas are phallus-worshippers since Macaulayans always translate “linga” as “phallus”, then, in exactly the same way, all those who define their faith in terms of the Testaments are testicle-worshippers since it cannot be denied that “Testament” derives from “testis”.

**”Father”, with a capital F, is the mythical father of Jesus, mythical because he is alleged to be a god called Jehovah rather than the human husband of Jesus’s (human) mother (compare the stories of the fathering of Kunti’s sons, called “mythology” by Macaulayans). In fact, there is sufficient reason to believe that Jesus himself is a historical myth (see sections 3, 4 and 12 of “Proselytisation in India: a pagan’s perspective”, http://www.vigilonline.com/reference/relart/krishen_kak_conversion.asp ; Tom Harpur, “The Pagan Christ”, 2004). ***The “beast” is usually interpreted to be the antichrist ( http://www.apostolic.net/biblicalstudies/beast17.htm ).

****Jerusalem (Rev 21.10). Note the biblical sanction for the exclusion of nonbelievers from its holiest place. Compare the Saudi exclusion of kafirs from Mecca, and note that the Vatican State bars citizenship and property rights to Hindus. We, of course, celebrate iftar on the Har ki Pauri in Haridwar, and welcome Christians and Muslims to own our sacred land – and us.

*****the Lamb is Jesus Christ

^^As always, I use “Hindu” to connote all the panthas and sampradayas (“religions”) indigenous to our subcontinent, notwithstanding an occasional use of a distinctive label (eg., “Buddhist” or “Sikh” or “Jain” or “Shaiva”) for topical emphasis.
