Rarer than hen’s teeth is the Alienist who actually interacts with something a Kinist has said. The norm rather runs the gamut from what Rushdoony called the “pious gush” of humanist platitudes, to hateful oaths to do us every measure of harm in their power. Like so:
You are scum. The lowest of the low. Subhumans. Animals. Outright demons. I pray your car breaks down in the hood. Our Black brothers know how to deal with your kind. Let’s see you tell Black people to their faces that your precious White people just want to live. You wouldn’t dare! Because you’re a coward! And I hope your precious little pure White daughters are taken by Black men so your evil can pass from the earth.
I demand to know your real name, what church you attend, who your elders are, and where you work. They need to know what kind of devil you are. You also need to be investigated by the police. There’s no place for filth like you in society. But that’s why you use pseudonyms — because you’re cowards.
And just as often…
I can’t even. I’m literally shaking. Wow. Just wow.
Now, ain’t that some fine embroidery?
Nonetheless, this question (not really a question so much as an accusation) of why so many Kinists write under pseudonym needs answered. Relative to this question, our opponents have adopted a very strange position insisting noms de plume are categorical sin. But think of the implications of such an assertion — especially with respect to those it condemns.
Reformer Wolfgang Musculus wrote under the pseudonym Eutychius Myo.
Dr. Robert Barnes who at the height of the Reformation published under the pseudonym Antonius Anglus of Wittenberg, is memorialized in Foxe’s Book of Martyrs besides Tyndale and Frith as one of “the three worthy martyrs and principal teachers of this church of England.”
The martyr John Rogers translated his English Bible under the name Thomas Matthew.
Many were the Puritan divines who shielded themselves against papist and royalist reprisals by writing under the corporate moniker Smecytmnuus.
More than pseudonym, Martin Luther actually assumed a long-term alternate identity — Junker Jörg — complete with the assumption of a physical disguise.
The American Founders, Federalist and Anti-Federalist alike, wrote under assumed names like Americanus, Brutus, Cato, The Federal Farmer, Centinel, Rough Hewer, and many others besides.
So, too, with one of the brighter lights of commentary to come out of Britain in recent years, Anthony Daniels, who wrote of necessity under the nom de guerre Theodore Dalrymple.
We see the same thing in principle when David adopted the persona of a lunatic to conceal himself from his enemies (1 Sam. 21:13). And a few of the books of Scripture are unattributed, Hebrews and Judges, to name only two.
So when Alienists accuse those of us writing under pen name or anonymously of some grievous sin thereby, they condemn some of the greatest martyr heroes in church history, not to mention authors of Scripture. And plainly, if your argument winds up indicting the authors of Scripture for the writing of it, you have indicted the Scripture itself. Which, then, is a direct attack on God. Reductio ad haeresis.
So realize, when you respond to a Kinist’s biblical and historical arguments not in kind, but rather with demands to know his full legal name, place of employment, and whereabouts of his elders, we do not see a Christian acting in good faith, or even one vaguely concerned with truth; all we see is an imperial snitch moved by visceral hatred of truth and bent on harming God’s people. If the early church did not cater to such demands from the emperor cult, neither shall we.
Which isn’t to say that our real names are entirely secure. Many of you know us face to face. But we simply have no rational, moral, nor biblical incentive to aid those seeking to harm us, our families, our elders, and presbyteries.
But this is, of course, by nature of your imperial cultural Marxist faith, all lost on you. The fact that you insist otherwise — that we are somehow obliged to obey your arbitrary demands and facilitate your attacks on us — only proves the more who you truly are. Ever mistaking zeitgeist for the Spirit, and arbitrary power for genuine authority, you are children of chaos, ravening wolves. Which only justifies our anonymity the more.
