Ancient Aryan Religion Is Not the Way Home
In this series we’ve been briefly surveying the major religious institutions to which pro-white people have turned for solace during our present-day spiritual exile. Without exception, all of the major religious groups we’ve discussed have outright rejected those of us who do not wish to see our cultural and racial lineage destroyed. White genocide seems to be prerequisite for institutional existence these days. Even those few of us who dissent from this status quo on an individual basis on social media or websites have been getting banned from public discourse lately. Thus it is unsurprising that we haven’t found a church or other religious body interested in giving spiritual, practical assistance to us few dissidents to the anti-white system.
The anti-white animus of the day pervades not only the more stodgy religious bodies such as the old churches, but also exotic ones from abroad. Does it pervade the Western sects that pride themselves on rejecting the degenerate status quo? Does it pervade the religion that has some of the best claims to being the white man’s religion: neo-paganism?
For many centuries our European ancestors practiced paganism. We know this is the case because the histories of the conversion of the European peoples to Christianity have been well-documented. Ergo, pagans can argue that paganism is the original white man’s religion, and that paganism is the right religion to practice in order to fuel a renaissance among white people. That the major Christian institutions of the West have uniformly rejected white people in their desire to exist as a distinct people group serves as a helpful complement to this line of argument. It is true that since the middle of the twentieth century, Christian institutions have been in the cultural vanguard of white genocide in the West. Should we embrace the old gods in response?
For the purposes of this series, the question is not whether this or that religion can make an argument as to why it is theoretically better for white people than all the other ones. Nor is it enough to argue about historical roots. What this series is aimed at is discussing whether a religious institution here and now provides spiritual and practical protection to white people unashamed of their heritage, who resist the globalist forces behind white genocide. Does the neo-pagan world offer such assistance to pro-whites?
Unfortunately, no. Despite the fact that some of the Alt Right’s top thinkers strongly support neo-paganism in one form or another (e.g. heathenry, Ásatrú, or Odinism) no major neo-pagan institutions would proudly admit to having them, or masses of people like them, in their membership. The neo-pagan world is much like the Christian world in the sense that its organizations and leadership runs the gamut from mild political correctness to clown-world afficionados who counter-signaled the Alt Right hard after Charlottesville. Just as there are cuckservative Presbyterian and Baptist churches that frown on homosexuality but tolerate feminism and increasingly embrace the #BlackLivesMatter agenda, there are neo-pagan groups that offer relatively sane people a spiritual home. Just as there are rainbow flag-waving, butch dyke Episcopalian and Methodist priests, there are tie-dyed envirosexual neo-pagans who worship the goddesses, vote Green, and “honor Heather Heyer as an ancestral hero…a modern Valkyrie.” The presence of freaks in either the Christian or neo-pagan camp really shouldn’t be used as an argument for or against either faith.
What’s decisive for our purposes at present, though, is that the neo-pagan world doesn’t have any major religious institutions that welcome unashamed white people. In making this statement, I want to put “major” into context. Modern surveys of the U.S. neo-pagan population puts it at around one million people. At one million people, the U.S. neo-pagan population is smaller than even the small, dying, liberal Protestant denominations like the Episcopalians. So to be honest, no neo-pagan group is going to classify as “major.” Even the Mormons have 6.6 million adherents in the U.S., and they pale in comparison to the larger churches we’ve surveyed thus far.
Additionally, that one million-small population includes everybody from Buffy the Vampire Slayer-LARPing Wiccans, and Harry Potter-style magick fans, to out-and-out heathens. So again, there really aren’t any “major” institutions in the neo-pagan world. But of the small institutions that do exist, all but a few take the side of antifa.
However, there is one influential neo-pagan organization that has a place for pro-white advocates. Stephen McNallen was one of the original mid-twentieth-century revivalists of European paganism, and his organization the Asatru Folk Assembly is so pro-white that all the right people hate it.
But even this well-organized and -attended group numbers less than 10,000 people. We’ve got a long way to go before pro-white neo-pagans will have something that compares to the First Baptists and St. so-and-so’s we are accustomed to seeing at the intersections of busy roads in most downtowns. The organization has been working on buying an old grange hall in California. Again, that is progress — but it is a far cry from being able to provide spiritual and practical cover to our dispersed peoples. That is not a criticism, it’s just an acknowledgment that there is much, much further to go. In a future installment, we’ll consider the place of such spiritual entrepreneurship. I believe it is vital to our survival as a people of faith. It is a problem that we Protestants and members of other religions face as well.
In this installment, we’ve identified a small but historically significant group in the neo-pagan world that is pro-white. However, we still have not found one with the kind of accessibility, organization, presence, and funding that would enable us to all show up next week for worship and end our spiritual and social isolation.
A Facebook group does not deliver the same degree of spiritual or emotional value as a well-funded and well-attended religious organization owning a convenient place of worship. Hanging out online is not the same as rubbing shoulders in the pews and in the fellowship hall. What I pray for regularly is that God will bring about a world in which we move from pen pals and online LARPers to pillars of our local churches and battle buddies in foxholes.
Having surveyed the rest of the religious landscape and determined that none of the other major religious institutions are willing to aid our people, it is now time to turn to the Protestant world to find out if the Bible-thumpers are any different. Are there any major Protestant organizations friendly to the pro-white cause?
