Did you know? The Burning Man Festival has an “Orgy Dome”

burning man festival

The “Burning Man festival is currently underway (August 28th through September 5th)! About “Burning Man,” from Wikipedia:

“Burning Man is an annual gathering that takes place at Black Rock City—a temporary community erected in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada. The event is described as an experiment in community and art, influenced by 10 main principles, including “radical” inclusion, self-reliance and self-expression, as well as community cooperation, civic responsibility, gifting, decommodification, participation, immediacy and leaving no trace.”

Funny, no mention of the “orgy dome” on the Wiki page. Apparently it does exist though. Cosmopolitan magazine interviewed two couples who have participated in the orgy dome. From the Cosmopolitan web site:

“Cosmopolitan.com peeked behind the curtain with the help of two couples — Aly* and Dan*, and Jocelyn and Luke — who are orgy dome vets willing to share their stories. Here are his-and-her accounts of their experiences.”

Aly, 26, a production assistant in Los Angeles, California:

The night we went to the orgy dome, the line was super long. I didn’t realize there was such a process to getting in. We were interviewed to make sure we were sober enough to consent and [to check] that we understood all the rules. Verbal consent is necessary to begin play with other groups and to introduce new activities. If you ask if you can play with a couple, you’d still need to ask, “Can I touch your breasts?” “Can I go down on you?” “Can I fuck you both in the butt?” Consent is an active process and can be removed at any point.

I’m glad they have that entry process, but I hadn’t expected them to take it so seriously. It’s like the DMV: You get a number, then you talk to one guy and take a test on the rules, then you wait some more. We’d done some molly and ketamine (not a full dose, just a bump). Waiting in line for an hour sober would have been horrible, but I guess I would have preferred to have been more sober during the experience so it’d be easier to come.

Inside, the main space has mattresses on either side of a main walkway. I was comfortable right away — once you see a lot of other people having sex, it becomes pretty easy to feel like you can do it too.

We got right down to business; you aren’t supposed to sit around and watch, because that would be creepy. I need a lot of concentration to come, and it wasn’t happening. Honestly, sex after a week and a half on the playa is not really all that sexy. My thighs were chapped from riding my bike, which kind of made some of the sex a bit uncomfortable. I also had an ingrown hair from trying to shave in my tent without enough soap and water, and I was self-conscious about that too.

The boys Eiffel towered me, meaning I was on my knees between them, giving one oral sex while the other penetrated me from behind. Then we got the idea for them to double penetrate me, which we hadn’t done before, but we didn’t have the lube required and gave up pretty fast.

The guys used a vibrator on me when we got back to camp later, and that did the trick.

Aly’s partner, Dan, 34, set builder in Los Angeles, California:

I’m always down for the orgy dome, but I never put all my hopes on it or anything. If it happens, it happens. It’s air-conditioned, unlike most places on the playa, which is a big plus. It’s something different and exciting. The organizers are careful to make sure that everyone who goes in intends to have sex — they don’t want anyone just hanging out. If anyone does, they’re asked to leave. Some areas are designated for couples, and other sections are labeled “open for more,” meaning that those couples can be approached by others who want to join in.

Aly and I weren’t together then, but we’d been friends for a long time. There was no expectation of anything sexual, just getting effed up and having a party. The lighting is low and nice, there are nice drapes and comfy couches and pillows, and they provide lube and condoms.

At the time, we were pretty familiar with each other, so it worked out great. I’ve been in several threesomes before, but I enjoy the dynamic that Aly and I have. We’ve always had a thing about trying to Eiffel tower, although it started as kind of a joke. I like to have silly fun when I’m having sex and not take it so seriously. I love laughing — Aly is more open to that than most other people.

I was just excited to be there, especially because it was a rare thing to have sex with Aly because she lived in Chicago back then. So anything would’ve been great, even though when we did try to do double penetration, it didn’t really work out. It never has when I’ve tried it. Overall, it was a good experience and actually pretty funny; when we first walked into the space as it was being vacated, there was a group of our campmates who were leaving. They were like, “Funny seeing you here! We kept it warm for you!”

Jocelyn, 28, pastry chef in Portland, Oregon:

The orgy dome at Burning Man was the first time my husband, Luke, and I had group sex together, so I guess you could say it was somewhat of a catalyst for that lifestyle. All kinds of people are there: young, old, and all different body types and nationalities. It’s dark, and there’s sensual music playing in the background. You can practically taste the sexual tension.

Honestly, for us, it started in the waiting area before you’re admitted into the actual dome. I was getting my head, neck, and shoulders massaged by one person, and my feet and legs massaged by another, all while holding hands with someone else. The six of us were giving each other small kisses, and everyone was giggling and excited. It was all very natural, for all of us, which was amazing.

Once they call your group name, you remove jackets and shoes, and they’re stored for you in a cubby outside of the dome. It’s dimly lit inside, air-conditioned, and the ground is made of those black rubberized puzzle-piece floor tiles. There are several mattresses, each with fresh sheets. An attendant escorts you to your mattress. Entrants are also encouraged to use baby wipes and hand sanitizer.

We were probably there for over an hour. The six of us all shared one mattress and eventually took over a second one. At one point, I was being fingered by one of the guys, while his wife was going down on Luke. Luke and I were just looking at each other the whole time, like, “OMG, this is rad.”

I guess I had imagined lots of loud, porn-style, showy sex — but it’s not like that at all. Almost everyone was super intimate with their own partners. Part of the appeal is to have sex semi-publicly, but nobody seemed to be trying to win any Adult Video News awards.

All in all, I loved it. Everyone running the camp knows that consent is essential, and they do everything they can to protect that. Luke and I absolutely feel more bonded after that experience because it encouraged us to be completely open and honest about our needs and our boundaries.

Jocelyn’s partner, Luke, 34, winemaker in Portland, Oregon:

I’ve been to Burning Man three times; I like to go every other year so I don’t get too exhausted. The orgy dome is one of my favorite theme camps.

We went to the dome with two other married couples from our camp, and it was really important to Jocelyn and I to have a preliminary conversation with the people in our group. I’m very into open communication when it comes to sex and life in general. We had this moment early on in the week when we were hanging out with these two other couples and just realized that we were all really into each other. I pulled Jocelyn aside and said, “Hey, is it just me, or do we need to invite them all to the orgy dome?” She was immediately into it, so we asked them that night.

The chemistry we shared was unreal. I think I experienced the best oral of my life that night. We had all been drinking, so that probably helped everyone loosen up. I was happy with my decision to abstain from other drugs, because it meant I didn’t have to worry about “incompetence,” and I could have fun for a longer period of time.

While I didn’t interact with men by sucking or fucking, I definitely made out with them, which tends to be my M.O. during group play. That being said, if a guy grabbed me or started giving me oral, I wouldn’t recoil; the experience of it all seems like it would be worth giving a shot. Everyone was already so close as friends and this just made us that much closer. In a way, we became a little sixsome family afterward.

As for whether or not I was vibing on any one person, Jocelyn and I clearly have very similar tastes in ladies. We talked about it afterward and both felt particularly drawn to one of our friends. Not surprisingly, we slept with her and her husband at our wedding reception! We’re still great friends with the other couple too.

The vibe after the orgy dome was fantastic. We were all still giggly and ready to head out into the wild of Burning Man for the night. We all felt empowered, happy, and wild.


It’s the liberal mantra: “empowering.”

Yet Everyday Health has a different take on this form of sexual promiscuity. As Dr. Eowyn noted in a blog post from last December: “Society puts an emphasis on sexuality — but casual sex can impact your physical and emotional health in ways that you may not suspect.”

But don’t expect Cosmopolitan magazine to offer any analysis other than the “rad” sex part. Disclosing the lasting consequences of promiscuity wouldn’t be “empowering.”

  1. The U.S. has surpassed Sodom and Gomorrah in depravity, not just in behavior but because of the contorted rationalizations used to justify promiscuity as “empowering”. “Jocelyn” and “Dan”, who look like cesspools of diseases, will bring home from Burning Man the “gift that keeps on giving” — STDs that increasingly are becoming antibiotic resistant.

    • As I read this, I intended to sarcastically reply “Thank you, now I have to wash my eyeballs.”

      But by the end, I felt the need to mention the premise of my first book, How the West was Lost (click on my name to read more about it).

      Western Civilization ended with the 9/11 event; the 20th century was a transition period between the West and what I called (more than 10 years ago now) the New Civ. Back then, I said that the outlines of the baseline assumptions about the nature of reality in the as yet unnamed new civilization were blurry. They have come into sharp focus in the ensuing decade. This article describes the sharp outlines of one of the New Civ’s facets.

      What is in view is a return to the sexual environment of Rome, the civilization the West replaced. As Joe Sobran wrote in a fantastic essay I pasted into my Bible many years ago, when the West emerged from so-called dark ages there remained no sexual immorality–what’s so “dark” about THAT?, was his point.

      The normalcy of abject immorality, the utter rejection of the cultural norms the West was built upon, the joyous trampling of the institution of the family. These are characteristic elements of the New Civ. Think of what it would have been like to have been a deep believer in Roman civilization in, say, AD 475, lamenting that Christianity had already prevailed, and there was no hope of reversing the transition. That’s us, now.

      What do we do about it? That’s my second published volume, which is about the Beatitudes. We can’t put the toothpaste back in the tube, but we can repair to the spiritual truth, even if it means the catacombs.

      Sexual perversion is not the only facet of the jewel that is the New Civ. The hatred Donald Trump inspires points us to many others. Why, one might ask oneself, is Japan not expected to dilute its civilization/culture with aliens from incompatible civilizations/cultures? China? Vietnam? Nigeria? Saudi Arabia? Why are only Australia, Europe, America and Canada commanded to eliminate their distinctive cultural character? Because they are the West. Anything that holds a vestige of Western Civilization must be eliminated. This is one of many other examples of the ways in which the New Civ replaces the civilization we have grown up within.

      Trump inspires tens of thousands to fill stadia on a day’s notice because he speaks to the hearts of people who instinctively know that the West is gone, and our leaders are taking us away from what is left of it, and he thinks he can stop that motion, and restore what the elites have stolen from us. Of course, he can’t, any more than King Canute could stop the tide. His candidacy is a last desperate expression of the common man of the West to fight back

      These perverts depicted in the article feel joy in their expression of the Roman sexual norms they have adopted. They feel liberated. They might even have a temple of Jupiter at the camp, where they can offer a pinch of incense to the god of their choice–but YHWH, NEVER!

    • I’m going to try to explain something here that may be a little difficult to grasp. When we study Patristics and the foundations of theology, patterns emerge. First, the Church has been under constant attack since its formation. First from the Jews, and later from Jew-inspired heresies.

      Once the bulk of various councils had by and large established normative Christian theology, a long-running assault on established theology began. The Church had to be ever vigilant to prevent the spread of error that lead to the collapse of morals.

      This was relatively easy when the Church held sway. Our enemies soon realized that if they were to make any progress they would have to destroy the authority of the Church and its power to enforce orthodoxy.

      By and large they have now reduced the Church to simply being an institution in a world of institutions. Through underhanded methods the Church itself has been infiltrated. It no longer stands tall and denounces the unacceptable. It doesn’t want to be seen as “not politically correct”.

      Our enemies take full advantage of this. These modern retreats into animism and utter rejection of God are but a recent example. We are supposed to think that our ancestors were simply backward and stupid. The tolerance for this type of thing is remarkable. We are to think that swingers, trannies, queers, goat-f*&kers, et al, are just “personal choices” which must be “respected”.

      Sodom and Gomorrah indeed. I believe there was a lesson to be learned in the telling of that story. If we’re lucky, these practitioners of New Age Magik will have their genitalia fall off and become incapable of reproducing.

      • I agree with your analysis, lophatt.

        The Jews who did not recognize Christ at the time of His resurrection were an able tool of the devil ever after, to subvert the new Revelation of God, for one thing. I hold, of course, that most Jews are not enemies of God, but the portion who are are mighty powerful tools of Satan.

        But moving into our own time, and the subversion of the Church (I am a protestant, it should be understood, and hold that the Church had to be reformed, and God ordained it when the Pope refused to acknowledge that obvious truth, and address Luther’s easily recognized agenda items). Keeping in mind my premise, that the 20th century was the transition between Western Civilization and the new one we now occupy, one cannot deny the disaster of the Second Vatican Council. It gutted the Catholic faith, robbing it of much of its moral suasion.

        You see, I am not anti-Catholic, but if Catholicism is worth its salt, it largely lost its saltiness when that conclave disbanded. Some Catholics today are trying to put that toothpaste back into the tube. I wish them well. The world would be far better if Vatican II could be undone. I feel confident that that will not happen. Certainly the astounding popularity of the current pope (Ann Barnhardt holds him as “antipope”) militates against any such hope.

        That is, the Church, which is all believers, had better learn to live together in peace, because the Enemy has the destruction of us all in his target-sights. Practitioners of sexual perversion are one thing–but when it’s made a culturally sanctioned, group activity, we have another thing in view.

        Mike Heiser’s fantastic podcast, the Naked Bible, is currently unravelling the strange and important book of Ezekiel (free at iTunes); the most recent episode–I think he’s on chapter 6– includes a fascinating insight. God sent His people into exile not because individuals were failing to worship YHWH perfectly, or even because they were worshipping alien gods. It is because it had become the policy of the national government. THAT, He could not tolerate. Israel had been created to be His people, and for a reason: to rescue all mankind. Israel could not be allowed to apostatize. Christ could never come, if that were allowed to happen. Ezekiel explained it to the Jews, in lots of street theatre ways, over years, but they obviously did not listen. They never did. The prophets were always ignored. One of the great things about the Bible is that all the warts are included in the pictures it paints of the history of God’s selected people. What a bunch of misfits they look like. Yet, Jesus could only emerge out of that bunch, in exactly the way He did. Oh…here I am preaching.

        My point is that we need to face the fact that we are in the exile the Jews experienced, that Ezekiel foretold, and for the same reason. Centuries later, only a remnant of the Jews recognized Christ, and they were persecuted for it. We are just like them, too.

        Just as the Jews had to live in exile, and just as the early converts to Jesus had to hide under the streets of Rome, so, I advise, shall we.

        Cheers!

        • Patrick, as usual you said a lot. Most of it I agree with, but not all (as you are aware). I maintain that dividing Christ’s Church was not an option, and still isn’t. I won’t get into Luther but I could do a few weeks on that sometime.

          I agree that Vatican II was a disaster. I suppose being “worth its salt” is a matter of believing that The Church “owes” someone an explanation (apology?), or not. I, of course, do not think that’s the case.

          The Church has survived over 2,000 years. There have been “challenges” and successes. Just like family, one does not desert them when someone has problems. The reason it survived was that there is the divine working in it. When the clergy need correction, the laity provide it, and vice versa. It does not exist to make US happy.

          We’ll leave it at that. I was raised a Protestant and went to “Bible School”, etc. (replete with pink fluffy clouds and blue-eyed Christ’s). I left voluntarily, as an adult. I have probably heard every excuse imaginable for the Reformation. None of them suffice.

          I have close friends who are Protestant ministers. We get along famously, but I won’t say “you’re right” to anyone unless I mean it. And, yes, I do think it makes a difference.

          Thanks for the response though, it was well thought out and balanced. Most of all it was polite. I wish you the best.

          • “Most of it”? I tried my best, brother, to make it all the way.

            We are inside out, you and me. I was born Catholic, and chose evangelical protestantism. Family thinks I betrayed them. I understand, especially people who consider catholicism a cultural inheritance. So I try in such conversations to be respectful. I’m no theological bigot.

            Well, I did not betray my family, whatever they think. We all have a choice. Theology is a science that has freedom of interpretation; those who deny that freedom lose my respect to some degree. I do not deny catholicism its rightful position; I don’t call my ancestral forebears fools for believing what I do not. I just disagree with them. I think my theology is superior. They think theirs is, too. I don’t try to persuade them. I just wish they would not treat me like a pariah for leaving their comforting confines.

            Which theology is correct? We’ve been trying to sort that out for what, 1,900 years? At least no one is being burned at the stake about it anymore.

            Still, now that Europe is being invaded by Moslems, and Charles Martel refuses to rise up and drive them out, one looks back longingly to the time when Christendom cared about the faith enough to fight religious wars over theology. At least we took it as seriously as it deserves. Now, Christianity could dry up and blow away, and no one would notice. What have we wrought?

              i’m not trying to do that. Part of my point alludes to your last paragraph here. Were we still undivided, we might have had a better chance to fend off this menace. I agree that this current assault is worse than most realize.

              It is a common myth (an incorrect one), that Islam is “just another Abrahamic faith”. Nothing to worry about. Now THAT is what I call foolish. They are using these simple zealots like weapons. And yet,…….those political leaders like Merkel are still there. How is that?

It’s not that Jews are bad, in and of themselves: They are people HELD HOSTAGE to what amounts to a political ideology. And Henry Makow has even posted an article, some time back, in which he says, “Even Jews ask—Is Judaism a Satanic Cult?”
        I think the first thing we have to study is what happened in history, and ever since Christ was betrayed by Pilate, it’s been the same old broken record, played over and over, for the past two millenia—only the appearances are different.

          • He wasn’t betrayed by His disciples, every one of which was a Jew. And most of the early Church were Jews, who recognized their messiah, given time, as the teaching spread. They were clueless, but open.

            Throughout the centuries, Jews who have studied the Bible (we Christians call it the Old Testament) have recognized their messiah in Jesus, and converted to Christ. Today, they call themselves Messianic Jews.

            Of course, the murderers of Jesus were in fact Jews–the Pharisees and Sadducees, primarily. When Jesus encountered them He denounced them for placing their “traditions” (that was the Talmud) above the Word of God. Those Jews who stuck to the Law and the Prophets heard John the Baptist’s message, and followed Christ. Those who worshiped the words of men were enraged by His presence, and killed Him.

            The same is true today. The small percentage of Jews, in league with the devil, are trying to remake the world for antichrist’s rule. And all the rest are pretty much clueless. Their modern Pharisees and Sadducees work overtime to convince them not to see Jesus everywhere in the Old Testament. Very, very sad.

            Pilate did not want to condemn Jesus. Politics. Just like today.

            • The story goes, Judas “betrayed” Jesus by kissing him. This was to identify him to the soldiers. Pilate, did not really want to be bothered. The “Jews” (they weren’t “Jews” yet), threatened him with complaining to Rome.

              I have heard much discussion over the years about how to interpret this. In a way, Judas had to do what he had to do. Jesus “knew” that he was going to do it. The miracle of the Incarnation would be meaningless with the sacrifice.

              It is always a little problematic with interpretation to separate the “authors” from one another. Some clearly tried to emphasize the “Messianic” aspect. Others attempted to emphasize the “Word” (Logos). That is a Greek concept.

              What is important is not so much what it “says”, it is what it “means” that matters. So the Judas story, related after the fact, is designed to show an element of “foreknowledge”. That is attractive to some, not me particularly.

              So we have what we now call Jews, who initially believed they were forming another sect of Judaism, using Jewish memes to try to draw corollaries between Jesus’ earthly ministry and predictions of the coming Messiah.

              I have a very good study bible. It is a Jerusalem Bible. It identifies the various authors of sections that made it into the canon of Scripture. Scholars are so familiar with this that they can identify the authors by their themes and styles.

              They each had specific “agendas” that they were emphasizing. My point here is, we have the story. We don’t have every jot and tittle of it. We have the religious theory. We have an immense treasure trove of information beyond that about the early, formative years as well. We have records of synods and the reasons given for their conclusions.

              So Judas gets a sort of “double role”. He’s seen as the great betrayer, but he had to do what he did to save us. One of the first major schisms, with the Orthodox, was as a result of this. They said “Jesus was entirely divine, and therefore, knew his fate and pretended to suffer it”. The Catholic position was (and is) that “Jesus was both fully divine and fully human. The Incarnation would have no meaning if God did not know what it was like to be human. If He only “pretended”.

              So words can have importance to people’s faith. It is not the same thing to worship a God that only superficially knows what we humans endure. It also rather detracts from the concept that “God so loved the World, that he sent his Only Begotten Son…”. That was real, it was not an abstraction.

          • This is in reply to lophatt, trying to get out of the thick middle, and begin afresh, in the light of new comments outside that thread which relate to the idea.

            You said this, and I’ve been thinking about it:

            “I maintain that dividing Christ’s Church was not an option, and still isn’t.”

            This is an interesting thing to say.

            First, it IS an option, because, as we can all see, it was in fact done. It reminds me of what Mark Twain said when asked if he believed in infant baptism: “BELIEVE in it? I’ve seen it done!”

            On the other hand, Christ’s Church cannot, by definition, be divided, and thus never has been. Because the Church is everyone who believes, and has confessed that Christ is LORD. A person who has never heard of Christianity stranded on a desert island, who finds a Bible in a bottle washed up on shore, reads it and believes it and confesses Christ, instantly becomes part of the Church. No human agency is required to make that happen. And they are just as truly the Church as anyone from an official denomination.

            There are four branches of Christianity today: what remains of the Church in the lands the Moslems seized, and that the crusaders sought to reclaim; the Greek-speaking half of the Roman Empire (Russia, too); the Catholics; and the protestants. This is “division,” I suppose, but only in the sense that the world of apples is divided. I like Honey Crisps; others like Fujis, or Granny Smiths. Apples, though, remain apples.

            Denominations are a matter of theological persuasion. That is, interpretation of the raw materials (the texts), historical practice (tradition), and prejudice (emotion).

            There is, and can only be, one Church. We are one Body, as Paul constantly assures us. What we must always do is resist the impulse for the spleen to say to the ligaments that only the spleen is the body. This is a difficult impulse to resist; many are incapable of it. But for a Baptist to tell a Russian Orthodox that they are not saved is like a Red Delicious telling a Macintosh it’s not an apple.

            Would the Catholics be better off if the Greek half of the Church bent the knee to the corrupt papacy in rump Rome? Would Constantinople? Would the Church? Answer: no. The split had to happen.

            The same is true of what Martin Luther finally awakened to. He did not desire another split, but Rome would not face its corruption, and repent. There was no choice; the Church had to split again.

            But it remained one Church. It’s like a unified city that finds itself reshaping itself into neighborhoods that grow their own unique cultures. We might wish it never had to happen, but that’s life in a fallen world. People are like that.

    they degrade themselves, spiritually and physically….illness of the body and soul.
    another thing I found interesting was the “couples” constant need to make sure everyone who read their spiritual vitriol understood how important consent was/is….
    isn’t that one of the devil’s tricks?
    he will get you to believe a lie so you can let him invade….the only way he wins is when man is weak in the flesh and spirit and an orgy is a prime example of being weak in the flesh and spirit.

  8. Satan knows that the quickest way to destroy a person’s character is to attack his or her sexuality FIRST: Such abuses cut right to the character of a person, right to his soul and spirit. This is why sexual sins are among the most serious of sins.
    This has been the same old song and dance ever since Ancient Babylon. The reason why the feminists and leftists hate St. Augustine so much is that he was living in times essentially the same to ours, in which licentiousness dominated the culture. His philosophy and writings put an end to the madness. So I am wondering what, besides a Chastisement, will it take for our Nation and Culture to repent and turn to God? Perhaps nothing but a Chastisement will work. If such is the case, many people will die. (Many people have already died, if we count the unborn. And, ultimately, I think, sexual permissiveness on the scale of Burning Man really is, essentially, a form of CANNIBALISM, albeit an intellectualization of the carnality of man).

    • Hmmmm! St. Augustine regarded his sexual desires as his biggest obstacle to God’s love. I”m certainly not sure he was right about that. Much terrible theology has resulted from flaky interpretations of Augustine.

      I’m not saying “you’re wrong, Steven”, I’m just pointing out a couple of things. His mother, Monica, was a Christian. His father Patrick, was a pagan. I’m sure that he was no stranger to seeing Roman-style bacchanals in his home. His mother disapproved. Patrick took the easy route and “converted” on his death bed.

      I actually think his personal struggle had more to due with Augustine than the nature of sexuality. This way of thinking gave birth to the idea of celibate life being “superior” to the married state, for example. It also gave rise to a belief that “original sin” was transmitted sexually.

      I don’t believe that either of those two perspectives are correct. It is difficult to believe that God would endow us with something as wonderful as sex and expect us not to partake in it. it isn’t being “sexually active” that’s the problem. It’s being sexually perverse.

      Augustine wrote some amazing stuff. I think his theories on human sexuality aren’t among them.

  9. The Christian Reformation began as an attempt to reform, not Christianity, but the Catholic Church. Many believers were troubled by the Church and its practises, such as the sale of indulgencies (tickets to paradise) and simony (buying and selling church positions). Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin, John Knox and other reformers protested these and other practices and beliefs of the Church such as Purgatory, devotion to Mary, (Marina veneration). the intercession of and devotion to the saints, most of the sacraments, the mandatory celibacy of the clergy, the
    existance of the Pope, forgiveness of sins by priests (only Jesus can forgive sins), crossing oneself, rosaries, holy water, incense, kissing rings, relics, etc. None of these things are to be found anywhere in the Bible, they are not doctrines of Christianity, they were practices of the Church. I come from a Christian family stretching back to Luther’s time. My father thought Catholics were worse than Communists.
    The reformers thought the Bible should be read literally, they took the texts of the Old and New Testaments as something like statute law, the words meant what they said. Anything not contained explicitly and literally in the scriptures was to be rejected, and anything that is contained explicitly and literally in the scriptures was to be followed unwaveringly. The literal reading of the Bible became the underpinning of the social theories and organization of Protestant societies and the foundation of social organization of the English colonies in America.These reformers transformed the philosophical, political, religious, and social landscape of Europe..American political discourse is essentially Calvinistic, its social organization is based on the literal mening of the Christian scriptures.
    Luther wrote a letter to Pope Leo (which resulted in his excommunication) in which he explained the substance of his ideas. The letter is entitled “On the Freedom of the Christian”. According to Luther, the essence of Christianity is “freedom”, or “liberty”. It is this concept that eventually gave rise to the notion of individual freedom, political freedom, and economic freedom. The word “liberty” appears 27 times in the Bible, the word “free” 59 times. Pope Leo, son of Lorenzo the Magnificent, shocked Protestants when he said “This myth of Christ has been very profitable for my family”.

  10. I would also like to ask everyone to watch a video at TruNews: “Trump Chosen By God to Stop America’s Destruction”. This is a prophecy, and backed up by irrefutable facts. When I first noticed it, it had about 200,000 hits — as of today it has 2, 427, 446 — and rising. That means 2,427,446 votes for Trump, and this video is also shown multiple times, which means even more votes. God loves Ameica and has decided to give us a reprieve, and his instrument is Donald Trump. He is God’s anointed, his whole life has been a preparation for the mission he is now carrying out — he is the only righteous man standing alone against the mass of demonic reptiles opposed to him. They recognize his authority, and therefore hate him. God says Trump will be president, and so he will. Those opposed to him will go down to ruin.So we must do all we can to help the Donald.

  11. I would also like to say — please watch “One for Israel” — here you will find testimonials of Jews who are now Messianic.it’s amazing, they were so astounded when they learned that the New Testament was a Jewish book, written by Jews and filled with Jews — mostly Rabbis forbid Jews to read it and they think it is Catholic propaganda. Also when they were shown the words from isaiah referring to Christ they were amazed. To one, I think his name was Weiseman or somwthing similar, Jesus even appeared. All of these people are so happy and some have married Christians. Thee testimonials are heart-warming.

    For anyone interested, I created this prayer for the festival, inspired by the MP3 prayers of the rex deus church.

  13. You know, I can’t help but think emptying a few oil drums full of live, disease-free fleas, ticks, chiggers and maybe some lice and horseflies into that dome might change their tune towards participating in said debauchery. Unfortunately that’s about the kindest thing I can think of at present to say of this blasphemy of temples (bodies).

    Apologies.
