We need to stop telling people the folk myths of genocidal ignorant neurotic goat-herders who literally knew nothing at all and whose fear-driven obsessions of 3,000 years ago continue to harm billions today. Judaism, Christianity, and Islam all stem from the Yahweh cult (which in turn derived from the cult of El) and as such they are all stunted, sad, twisted mythologies that are in the most fundamental sense anti-human. In these sad little myths there is no place for humor, normal sexuality, empathy, and the essential feminine impulses. Instead it’s all aggression, fear, repression, and neurosis.

Until we start telling more adequate stories, tales like yours will continue to be commonplace outside of the one part of the world where these squalid little myths have largely been abandoned in favor of far healthier alternatives: north-west Europe. Sadly, thanks to the neurotic productions of Hollywood and the absurd Politically Correct notion that we have to “respect” even the most harmful and aberrant notions, even in Europe life is becoming more and more backward as the decades roll by.
