1. Religion & Spirituality

Discuss in my forum

Society has enforced many sorts of privilege where one group has advantages over all others due to their supposed superiority. There has been white privilege, where whites have had privileges and powers unavailable to other races. There has been male privilege, where men have had power and options denied to women, whatever their race. With Christian and religious privilege, Christianity, Christians, or religion generally are given a special status over other religions or beliefs.

“…there are no endorsements of other religions, such as Hinduism…”

What about the Hindu cleric invited to lead the prayer at congress?

What about it? He didn’t give an explicitly Hindu prayer which might arguably represent an endorsement of Hinduism. Even if he had, however, that would be irrelevant to the point: no one says that the absence of state endorsements of religions like Hinduism mean that the state is being hostile towards Hinduism.

Your views on Egyptian influence on Judaism is very interesting. It also has direct influence on MANY Christian myth, legends and fallacies that are now accepted as facts. For example, the St George figure finds its roots in Horus with the harpoon, or Tut Ankh amon as a young king with a harpoon (statuettes in cairo Museum), representing a leader dominating the crocodile or the Hippo (symbol of the devil in ancient Egypt). Romans picked up this theme and represented it as Horus on a horse harpooning the monster croc (statuette Louvre Museum), this again picked up by in Ethiopia in the icon of Saint Sisinius, then by Byzance finally to reach Europe where the monster was replaced by a dragon. each step of the metamorphosis is evidenced by relics now found in various museums. I refer you to the books of Christiane Desroche Noblecourt.
St Christopher is nothing more than a legend inspired as well by Egyptian mythology.
We can go on for tens of thousans of pages… which show, alas, the current monotheistic religion are simply fabricated
