From guns to religion oh my. I'll be quick, fundamentalism of all stripes is to be avoided and fought against, but not actively suppressed by the state because the definition of what is considered fundamentalist and what is considered moderate can be twisted to the point where anyone and everyone could be crushed. Saudi Arabia and the Vatican should be avoided as well as the Soviet Union and China. Separation of church and state is essential and as such a secular state must ensure the freedom to practice religion privately is protected with in a reasonable legal framework.

I am curious about your answer for this topic,cause you know better than me about it.


Yeah sorry, it's not that you're /wrong/ for say, just more than I don't enjoy conflict too much and I was up pretty late last night.

The only Neo-Pagan Reconst that i'm aware of that leans towards the Far-Right is the Neo-Nords. Who take the already questionable Nordic faith (Slavery, unjust hierarchy, ''Nordic Ethnicity'', ETC) and have blended it into the Anarcho-Fascist and other third-position ideologies.

The Celts (Druids, Wicca/Witch, Celt/Tygrs) believe that everyone was made from roots and clay, and thus we're all part of nature. This being truth to us, and nature being top of the list on important things to protect, we see every living creature as equal. Thus, for us there can't be Hierarchy other than the tribe leader, who's entire role in the faith (and the tribe) is to teach and help sort out arguments. There is no Racism/Sexism/Orientationism/ETC, to hate someone else is to hate yourself, since we're all connected.

The scales are completely different, irritating though the behavior of those types may be. Let's not worry to much about fighting the gnat when the dragon is still flying. I think keeping a perspective on the levels of this is important.

So while some of those tendancies are worrying, they are not an existential threat to civilisation. The present actions of the theocrats clearly are so. The two issues are just not remotely comparable in terms of the danger they pose.


The techbro atheist is a classic alt right figure. I don't really agree with what you are saying--respectfully, comrade!

Don't need to be respectful if I'm not earning it, I can take it comrade!

But I understand how you might see one as coming from the other. To be honest the alt right strike me as just typical Fascist and ethno-nationalist types, just with better suits and slicker PR. They're not "Alt" or "New", they're the same old hard-right they've always been, and just as contemptible, despite their protests to the contrary.

Even if what you're saying is true, at present I still think fundamentalist religion is causing more damage, at least in terms of scale. But I understand the concern you're making and you are not wrong to say that the stupid segments of the non-believers (usually Net based), have an element of that running through them.

In terms of religion, I’d have to consider myself as a “fundamentalist”, in that what I consider to be fundamental parts of the Christian religion would be totally different from what other “fundamentalists” would. Keep in mind, I tend to lean towards Traditionalist theology (in terms of Christology and such, but I’m not a Young Earth Creationist), but my reading of the Scriptures turns me more to Anabaptist thought.

To sum up, my fundamentals are:
•Simple living (Don’t be a glutton, everyone gets their “daily bread”).
•Community (All are one in the Body of Christ).
•Non-conformity (In the world, but not of the world).
•All things in common (If God truly gives man everything, and the Body of Christ is to act in one accord, then there truly is no such thing as private property, only that which has been allotted, hence the daily bread. The early Church and the Apostles also lived a communal existence in Jerusalem).
•Modesty (Treat your body as the temple of God, do not disrespect or degrade it).
•Forgiveness (God forgives us when we screw up, so we should be willing to forgive as well).
•Judge Righteously (There is right in this world, there is wrong in this world, but not everything is black and white. Love and compassion should motivate our judgements).
•Mercy (God shows it to humanity, so we should show it to others. Give everyone a chance to change).
•Self-Obliteration (Since all are one in the Body of Christ, we are called to die to ourselves and become totally one with it. There is room for individuality, but the above-all goal is to be molded in Christ’s image. With this, you also lay down your life in service to your brethren.)
•Missional Living (We are to walk in His footsteps every day, and to live in a way that if the Gospel was to disappear it could be re-written based on the lifestyle of Christ-followers).
•Live as a Foreigner (Christ-followers are the spiritual descendants of the Israelites, and like them in that followers of the Savior are on a continuous exodus out of Egypt (slavery to sin and the world) and to Zion (the Kingdom of God).
•Charity (Freely we are given, and freely we shall give).
•Purity of Heart (Mold your thoughts to the Mind of God. Lust, hate, and covet no more).
•Familial Bond (All are brothers and sisters in Christ, and the Church is to be a family built on faith and community).

Not necessarily wanting to argue, but just wanted to throw that out there. I do love the open discussion though comrades, it does build a stronger character when we can freely exchange our ideas :).
