All Saints' Day was followed by All-Souls' Day, November 2 unless that was a Sunday then it was November 3, this was a Catholic adaptation of pagan festivals for the dead. Prayers for the dead are an integral part of the traditional All Saint's Day services, which are scheduled in Catholic churches on November 1, and on the next Sunday. Halloween gets its name from the Catholic holiday. It is a Hallowed evening, because it precedes All Hallows' Day. Thus the name Halloween. Halloween is a pagan holiday to honor the dead and evil spirits.
The pagans in Rome celebrated their thanksgiving in early October. The holiday was dedicated to the goddess of the harvest, Ceres, and the holiday was called Cerelia. The Catholic church took over the pagan holiday and it became well established in England, where some of the pagan customs and rituals for this day were observed long after the Roman Empire had disappeared. In England, the "Harvest Home" has been observed continuously for centuries.
In our own hemisphere, among the Aztecs of Mexico, the harvest took on a grimmer aspect. Each year a young girl being a representation of Xilonen, the Goddess of the New Corn, was beheaded. The Pawnees also sacrificed a girl. In a more temperate mood, the Cherokees of the American Southeast danced the Green Corn Dance and began the new year at harvest's end.
No wonder Chief Massasoit and his ninety braves felt right at home with the Pilgrim Fathers on that day in 1621! Obviously, the idea for this "first Thanksgiving" did not just pop into the mind of Governor Bradford as most people believe. On the contrary Thanksgiving, in the guise of the pagan harvest festivals, can be traced right back to ancient Babylon and the worship of Semiramis!
Christmas was celebrated by pagan sun-worshipers for thousands of years before the Messiah was even born. It all started during the building of the tower of Babel. Nimrod supervised the operation and was called the sun-god and worshiped as such. To end this worship, Nimrod's uncle Shem, Noah's eldest son, killed Nimrod and cut his body into small pieces then scattered his body parts across the land.
Pagans in Rome celebrated the evening of February 14th and February 15th and as an idolatrous festival in honor of Lupercus, the hunter of wolves. It was not until the reign of Pope Gelasius that the holiday became a Christian custom. As far back as 496, Pope Gelasius changed Lupercalia on February 15th to St. Valentine's Day on February 14th. The original Saint Valentine was Nimrod. On this day in February, Semiramis, the mother of Tammuz, was said to have been purified and to have appeared for the first time in public with her son as the original "mother and child."
Mother's Day dates back to ancient cultures in Greece and Rome. In both cultures, mother goddesses, the Queen of Heaven, were worshiped during the springtime with religious festivals. The ancient Greeks paid tribute to the powerful goddess Rhea, the wife of Cronus, known as the Mother of the Gods, the Queen of Heaven. Similarly, evidence of a three-day Roman festival in Mid-March called Hilaria, to honor the Roman goddess Magna Mater, or Great Mother, dates back to 250 BCE.
As Christianity spread throughout Europe, the celebration of the "Mother Church" replaced the pagan tradition of honoring mythological goddesses. The fourth Sunday in Lent (Weeping for Tammuz), a 40-day fasting period before Easter, became known as Mothering Sunday. To show appreciation for their mothers, they often brought gifts or a "mothering cake" and over time it began to coincide with the celebration of the Mother Church. Mother's Day always falls on the second Sun-day of May, and like so many other holidays rooted in pagan sun-worship. Including Father's Day which always falls on the third Sun-day of June, usually fall on the day named in honor of their most powerful god. The Sun!
Easter or Ishtar, also known by her biblical name Semiramis and later called the Queen of heaven was the widow of Nimrod and mother of Tammuz. Easter is the bare-breasted pagan fertility goddess of the east. Legend has it that she came out of heaven in a giant egg, landing in the Euphrates river at sunrise on the first Sunday after the vernal equinox, busted out, and turned a bird into an egg laying rabbit.
To honor this event, pagan sun-worshipers would go out early in the morning and face to the east to watch their sun-god arise over the horizon before having a mass sacrifice in which the priest of Easter would sacrifice three-month-old human infants and take the eggs of Easter and die them in the blood of the sacrificed infants. The blood-red colored Easter eggs would later hatch on December 25th, the same day her son Tammuz the reincarnate sun-god would be born. How convenient!

In The News Our thoughts on current news stories
It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that i have to inform you of the passing of Social Justice Warriors. After a long fight against inequality, slavery, oppression and countless other unseen enemies, SJW’s passed away. They may be gone but their victories will be forever remembered.
After a long struggle fighting social injustice, social justice warriors finally succumbed to progressiveness, this terrible ailment in which there is no known cure.
Today's social justice warriors have been left with the spoils of what was once a noble fight. A noble fight that has now been reduced to endless whining about trigger warnings, guys sitting with their legs open and fucking clicking fingers instead of clapping because apparently clapping is aggressive or some shit...seriously, it's a thing, it's called snapplause.
Believe it or not, this is actually a good thing, if the only thing you have to worry about is being triggered by somebody clapping then your life is pretty fucking sweet. In the western world at least, all the real battles have been won. It is also a good thing that this sense or social morality still exists within people, where they feel they need to stand up for the weak, The real problem is, these poor peoples admirable instincts have been hijacked by the weak spineless betas that did not have the strength to stand up when the real battles were happening, they instead turned on, tuned in and dropped out.
These people are now trying to relive their youth by heading up the rear to a battle that has long been won. They disgustingly ride on the glory of past battles. Thanks to real social justice warriors every woman in the western world has the same rights and opportunities as every man, every color is equal in the eyes of the law and the only thing we have left to fight for is the rights of the rest of the world...you know...Them places where women are treated like second class citizens, where slavery is still a thing, where you can get killed for what you believe and what you won't believe, where education is a luxury and not a right. Yes, you will be glad to hear that there is still some good fights left out there, waiting for you.
If your goal is not to engage these atrocities then you do not care about justice and you sure as fuck are not a warrior, you're a follower, a puppet, somebody that is too scared to face the reality that the world is not against you, you are just weak. Rosa Parks had a safe place, it was at the back of the bus, she choose to stand up alone and refuse to be weak. There is a real difference in what she did and a bunch of kids shouting over people because you are offended because...well...whatever the fuck you're offended by, i assure you it's probably stupid. Being offended will never make you right, it will just make you weak.
If however your goal is to go and help the rest of the world catch up, then please heed my advice:
