Eso’s Chronicles 214/ 6  
St. Francis’  Prayer for.. (6)
© Eso A.B.

..WAR. Who is St. Francis? At the present he is Pope Francis , the first Pope in a long time who has exhibited activity as envisioned by the original Christians. The Pope did this when he recently asked Christians of whom he presumes himself to be the leader to fast for peace to avert an attack by the West on Syria by America and its violent proxy Al-Qaida.

There is a contradiction in Pope Francis’ mission. While today St. Francis is held to be a patron of ecology, the Pope himself is a Jesuit, of a militant, not to say a military order (‘soldiers of God’). Rule 13 of Ignatius Loyola's Rules for Thinking with the Church said: "That we may be altogether of the same mind and in conformity [...], if [the Church] shall have defined anything to be black which to our eyes appears to be white, we ought in like manner to pronounce it to be black."[2] of the Catholic Church. It could well be the motto of the CIA or NSA.

The paradoxical nature of Christianity has long been observed and held against it. This blogger belongs among its critics, and believes that what he holds to be the neo-Christian Church (black), was established on the cremated bones of an earlier Christianity (white), which emerged out of ancient languages as ‘the Law’.

When original Christianity was turned into ‘Law’, the ancient language of ‘religion’ was turned into ‘the Word’, which are now the first words of the NT John 1:1 , but also refer to Genesis 1:1 of the Bible. The changeover from ‘language’ to ‘Word’ was a violent one, because the change was made in order to legitimize taxation on behalf of the elites and ruling classes. This anarchic ‘order’ is being enforced to this day by ‘the law’, though the ‘law’ was preceded by a ‘language’, which implicitly taught attitude and behavior that arose out of the very nature of human being, because it is out of human being that language comes.

By equating itself with language, ‘the word’ has attempted to transform itself into ‘the law’. As a consequence, we get such perversions as the following (13 Romans 13 ):

Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God [why not substitute ‘government’ for ‘God’?], and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God. So anyone who rebels against authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and they will be punished. For the authorities do not strike fear in people who are doing right, but in those who are doing wrong. Would you like to live without fear of the authorities? Do what is right, and they will honor you. The authorities are God’s servants, sent for your good. But if you are doing wrong, of course you should be afraid, for they have the power to punish you. They are God’s servants, sent for the very purpose of punishing those who do what is wrong. So you must submit to them, not only to avoid punishment, but also to keep a clear conscience.

Pay your taxes, too, for these same reasons. For government workers need to be paid. They are serving God in what they do. Give to everyone what you owe them: Pay your taxes and government fees to those who collect them, and give respect and honor to those who are in authority.”

As we can infer from Pope Francis’ call for a public fast, he implicitly challenges ‘the law’ (unto itself), which underlies the call by Oscar Obama, President of the U.S., for a war against Syria.

Indeed, today ‘the law’ has come, so to speak, full circle by proving its illegitimacy. Today (their) illegitimacy is profoundly felt by the former elites, the men and women of government who call the turn of events as a return to ‘anarchy ’. Harry Reid, the Senate Majority Leader (see the preceding link), beside ‘anarchy’ also speaks of ‘filibusters’. I would like to see in these ‘filibusters’ the beginnings of a return to ‘language’ and—over the long term--a turning away from ‘the law’.

Note, that “…Pay your taxes… to those who collect them” is a reference to tax collectors, which in the ‘Roman’ days (the 1st Rome was in Byzantium, not Italy) were the Jews of the Empire of Khazaria , who lived a hop skip and a jump across the Black Sea to the northeast of the Empire of Byzantium. Even an elementary knowledge of history informs one that ‘bankers’ are never popular with ordinary citizens, who, when all is said and done, had it much better when they lived in the wood as reindeer herders, milked reindeer cows, and did not have to slaughter their animals (slaughter of domesticated animals is an abomination to those who raise them by non-factory methods) to pay taxes in pelts.

The issue of animal slaughter is also likely behind the Muslim prohibition against eating pork, because wild pigs were once a commonly herded animal.
