Maybe we’re all myth makers.
It is a time of fear in the face of freedom, a time of an emptying country and swelling cities, a time for the widening of previous roads and the opening of new paths, yet a time when these paths are mined by knowing algorithms of the all-seeing eye. It is the time of the warrior's peace and the miser's charity, when the planting of a seed is an act of conscientious objection. These are the times when maps fade, old landmarks crumble and direction is lost. Forwards is backwards now, so we glance sideways at the strange lands through which we are all passing, knowing for certain only that our destination has disappeared. We are unready to meet these times, but we proceed nonetheless, adapting as we wander, reshaping the Earth with every tread. Behind us we have left the old times, the standard times, the high times. Welcome to the irregular times.

Gordon Melton that the First Black Mass was a real event in the court of King Louis XIV, conducted by genuine Satanists, who really slaughtered an innocent baby in order to conjure evil magic. [...]
Back in 1991, Rev. Irvin Baxter started publishing EndTime magazine. That was 23 years ago. In 1997, Rev. Irvin Baxter started publishing his EndTime Magazine online at endtime.com, spreading the news of “his soon return.” That was 17 years ago, when he wrote:
Every 2,000 years there is a major event in the plan [...]
A day after the Greece v. Galloway Supreme Court decision, Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich told non-Christian citizens in the Town of Greece that they could either: 1) Shut up and take part in Christian religious rituals during government meetings, or 2) Get out. [...]
Is it any surprise that the Supreme Court would rule that it is acceptable for government to selectively promote religion when the Supreme Court itself has been closed to non-religious Americans for its entire history? [...]
The Christian Watershed on the superiority of Judeo-Christian morality:
“The Judeo-Christian worldview stands as a superior counterpart to naturalism. Naturalism does not protect humanity, even those who are conscious and self-aware, because naturalism can always shift what it means to be a “human person.” If the majority decides that having white skin constitutes an element [...]
The last pope, Joseph Ratzinger, denounced secularism as a source of wickedness. Today, Pope Francis has released a statement that shows a very different attitude.
