Now that Christmas is coming around I see a lot of Hindus indulging in carolling or even putting up a Christmas tree. This is not surprising since all Pagan cultures have always shared their gods with others. There are many ways to look at sharing gods, but what it comes down to is translatability. However unlike us heathens, the Jews and the rest of her children memes, subscribe to what is known as the Mosaic distinction. Our God is True, your God is False.
If a lay Hindu is confused how this can be, it is because he has foolishly ingested the idea that all religions preach the same thing. One only needs to take a cursory glance at the propaganda of the religions in question to determine how similar they are. The Jews settled in their holy land after the genocide of an entire people. commanded by Yahweh. Immediately there was a distinction between the right kind of God and wrong kind of God and the practices of those who lived in the holy land were abominable. In fact the slaughter of the Canaanites described in the OT is raw, glorious destruction spurred on by the advances of their Jealous Tribal God.
It should be quite obvious now that Pagan traditions are at natural disadvantages to counterreligions. This comes down to my problem with what we see today – worship assymetry. A Pagan can and will worship Yahweh as a lesser God of his own pantheon, but doctrine prohibits a monotheist of this particular persuasion from doing the same. The very first commandment of what is widely regarded as the Ten Commandments is “Thou shalt have no other gods before me”.
What have you achieved by fooling yourselves, Yindoos.
