In what will go down as one of the biggest shark-jumps in the history of pulpiteering, the cherub-faced Russell Moore recently denounced Nationalism as “Satanism,” even going so far as to identify White nations with the number of the beast, 666! Which places his eschatology and hamartiology entirely outside the historic Church.
However, Moore’s position is not entirely new. So far as we can tell, there’s not a dime’s worth of difference between Moore’s position and Shackleford’s. Which is actually the same promulgated through antichrist Hollywood.
Thankfully, our own brother Davis Carlton has taken the corrective hickory to Moore on the matter of this bizarre demonology. To which I offer only modest addendum pointing out the official response of Satanists to Russ’s identifying Nationalism with Satanism:
The Satanic Temple, far from endorsing crass nationalistic tribalism, actively fights for individual sovereignty and secular values. . . .
Finally, it must be said that nothing could be more antithetical to modern nontheistic Satanism than racist ideologies. We embrace a large diversity of individuals from a wide spectrum of political and cultural backgrounds, but we’re all unified by our respect for individual rights and pluralism. It is axiomatic within Satanism that individuals must be judged for their own actions and for their own merits. To unfavorably relegate individuals into arbitrary categories, or to take credit for the achievements of another based upon a shared classification, is to defy the very foundational principles of our ethics. We simply have no place for simple-minded supremacist, nationalist ideologues, and it’s impossible to interpret our tenets otherwise.
That’s right, Satanists agree with your social ethic 100%, Russ.
See, Satanists identify with Satan for defying all the norms of godly order in favor of total amalgam, unity, and equality. Having possessed the body of a serpent, Satan leveled his own high created status with the lower orders of being. Having approached Eve directly rather than Adam, her head, he flouted Patriarchy. And having broken with the bounds set between men and angels to interact with Mankind according to his own fancy, he defied the racial segregation between men and angels. All this prelude of course, to his beguiling Man to question the goodness of God’s distinction from themselves, and seeding in the minds of our first parents the egalitarian lie that they were rightly equals with God. Because egalitarianism, if granted between genders and races on the proposition that inequality and distinction are evils, necessarily implies a demand to be as God. Because that first proposition — that inequality is unjust — not only defies divine election, but also forms the core presupposition of determining good and evil for oneself, as if one were God. Fact is, Satan, having been the first advocate for Equality, was thereby the first anti-racist too.
So, yes, Russ, Satanists want you to know they embrace you as a co-laborer in their great work of the ages to liberate man from all stultifying tribal identities. Because inasmuch as Satanists are anti-racists, same as you, you are also, in ultimate presuppositions, a Satanist, just like them. Some irony, that, eh?
Dark lord Greaves’s only quibble with you, Russ, is your incessant lying in attributing the ethics of Satan to God and vice versa. It’s pretty bad when a guy who openly patterns his life after the Father of Lies rebukes you for lying too much. But much as I hate to admit it, the liar recognizes his own.
And it’s not just on his say-so, either. Be it the U.N., Buddhists, Marxist academia, Hollywood television and film, the Talmudists, Wiccans (i.e. witches), materialists/evolutionists, Antifa terrorists, the Bahá’í, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Scientologists, or just about every other cult in existence, by and large, they all agree with you. As Greaves describes them, yours are ‘secular values’, rather than Christian, and in total conformity with the Humanist revolution presently bankrolled by globalist predators like George Soros, among others.
Of course, you knew that because your work is funded directly by Soros. And your being in the employ of Old Scratch himself really provides the only explanation of your infamous abettal of the Mohammedan invasion and colonization of Christendom.
In conclusion, I leave the reader with this: for all Moore’s conformity with worldly values as embraced in all schools of Humanism today, and predicated upon the same autonomous presuppositions, his big-tent vision of society really only excludes one notable group — the historic Church. Traditional Christianity stands uniquely opposed to the socio-metaphysical monad that Moore takes for granted. So it is that the traditional social order of Christianity Russ decries as ‘Satanism’, while he promulgates the doctrines of the Satanic Temple.
