American Christianity

2,662 words

The strange sight of the Pope, on the World Day of Migrants and Refugees, welcoming eight North African children sporting T-shirts boasting, “welcome, protect, promote, and integrate” rather summed up the dismal state of the leadership of the faith that some say was once the embodiment of Europe.

The Saxon Savior:
Converting Northern Europe

4,814 words

“There were many whose hearts told them that they should begin to tell the secret runes.” Thus begins an ancient manuscript written in Old Saxon. It may surprise the reader to learn that these are, in fact, the opening lines of the Christian Gospel in the version known as the Heliand, produced for the Saxons in the early ninth century, after their conquest by Charlemagne.

Here Comes Woke Christianity

Rachel Held Evans

1,354 words

Popular Christian writer Rachel Held Evans died last weekend at the young age of 37.

Held Evans’ death caused much sorrow among mainstream media outlets. Even Hillary Clinton mourned her death.

Guide to Kulchur, Episode 13
Equus

152 words / 1:20:05

In the latest installment of Guide to Kulchur, John Morgan and Survive the Jive again join Fróði Midjord to talk about Sidney Lumet’s film Equus (1977), about a psychiatrist (played by Sir Richard Burton) questioning a seventeen-year-old stable boy who savagely blinded six horses with a metal spike, to find out the reason for his bizarre act. He discovers that the young man has been worshipping horses as an expression of a particularly pagan longing for the primordial forces of vitality. Read more …

Is Catholicism a Bulwark Against Islam?

Pope Francis kisses up to the Grand Imam of al-Azha

1,711 words

For centuries, Islam had no greater foe in the West than the Catholic Church. While the secular princes warred among themselves and focused on their narrow interests, the Church was there to harangue Christendom’s rulers about the real threat to their civilization and go on Crusade.  Read more …

Russia: An Exemplar of Christian Nationalism?

Volunteers from the Young Medics of Russia organization make a red ribbon as part of the worldwide campaign against AIDS in Rostov-on-Don.

1,391 words

Many on the Right seem to think that Christian nationalism is the path forward for our movement. They look to Hungary, Poland, and Russia as evidence that putting Christian identity at the forefront of our cause is the best way to attract the masses and restore white civilization to its rightful glory.

Overcomer to the End:
The Return of Brother Stair

Brother Stair

1,905 words

After spending a restless night after reading the latest productions of the Dissident Right, I sought solace, at around 4 AM, in one of my favorite entertainments: radio preachers. I was listening to some Jamaican rabbiting on about how important the support of his Brooklyn ministry was when there was a burst of static, a few moments of fuzziness, and then – suddenly – the unmistakable voice and teachings of Brother Stair!

Musica Deo Sacra

Salisbury Cathedral, Dark into Light

1,656 words

Evensong drifted in wisps of blue incense down the shadow-columned nave as I cast my eye over the gold Garter Banner fluttering overhead. My attention was drawn to the apsidal chancel and fourteenth-century vaults, with their red and turquoise fronds that stare benignly down on the heads of the Schola Cantorum choristers, their angelic voices echoing off the chambered underbelly of the Romanesque cross tower. A mass of mesmeric candles flickered over the polished, bone-like surface of the reliquaries in the chantry chapels of the DeSpensers, Beauchamps, and de Clares.

Homosexuality not conducive to creativity

Norman rejected the faddish view that homosexuality is associated with the creative individual. He regarded homosexuality as “destructive” to the creative impulse, which is based on unisexuality. He stated that the male homosexual is dominated by a split of either all-male or all-female:

Christianity & Nationalism:
A Cautionary Tale

Charles Maurras

1,412 words

The arguments over identitarians should embrace or abandon Christianity is a question that still remains unresolved within the broader movement.

Last week, Quintilian entered the fray and offered a reasoned argument for why white nationalists should embrace Christianity. The writer believes that white nationalists have fallen prey to the corrupted image of modern Christianity and fail to see the glory of the traditional faith.  Read more …

Norman Lindsay

6,784 words

Part 1 of 2 (Part 2 here)

Norman Alfred Williams Lindsay (1879-1969) was the brother of Lionel Lindsay, recently profiled at Counter-Currents. Like his brother, Norman excelled in a variety of artistic media.

Christianity & White Nationalism

2,366 words

It is a commonplace among White Nationalists to disparage Christianity. This is understandable inasmuch as most of the Christian denominations today have abandoned almost all of the tenets of Christianity. The typical Christian minister or priest is no longer a saver of souls but is instead an anti-white social justice warrior (SJW). “Is the Pope Catholic?” is no longer a self-evident joke but is now a serious question that must be answered in the negative.

My recent essay on “Identity and the Problem with Christianity” garnered a fair bit of criticism from Christian members or allies of Identitarianism. This was something I expected, as the thesis—that authentic Christianity is incompatible with any other form of identity—is neither conciliatory nor is it a consciously accepted precept of Christian theology.
