Christ as a Social Reformer

“Christ as a Social Reformer & Writings in Red” By Arthur Desmond

Ragnar Redbeard Presents “Christ as a Social Reformer & Writings in Red” By Arthur Desmond New Zealander Arthur Desmond (1859-1929) was a poet, author, political activist, unionist, and agitator. Nowadays he’s probably most famous for having written the infamous 1896 book Might is Right under the pseudonym Ragnar Redbeard.

Catholic Bishop: “No Purpose” in Responsibility for Crimes

Satan represents responsibility to the responsible—perhaps one of the reasons Satanism ought indeed be feared by Christianity and its ilk? No magic words to make personal responsibility go away (Priests and Absolution), and no vicarious human sacrifice (Jesus and Redemption), just reality and accountability.

Finally, sanity in the world is gaining momentum, and those long-standing institutions of hypocrisy and […]
