Cross Purposes II

The odious WorldNetDaily is always good for a chuckle - or a shudder. Its bloodthirsty slate of neo-con and theo-con columnists is mixed in with old-fashioned red meat-chucking disguised as news-gathering and some of the web's most depressing low-rent advertising. One of its recent provocations, "Secret plans under way to tear down Christian symbols," is a timely story in which the latest signal of the power elite's rapid dismantling of its long-running "Religious Right" pyramid scheme is the ordered removal of crosses at a US Army chapel in Kosovo.

Take a good, long look at the entrance to that building and see if it reminds you of anything we've been discussing here over the past few months.

Better yet, take a look at the logo for the Army Chaplain Corps and see if it doesn't remind you of something else. Something you can't put your finger on. Besides the 17, I mean.

  1. That's very typical of any Christian or Catholic motif though, you'd be hard pressed to find a church that didn't have at least one symbol on display somewhere featuring a dove and a crook and an open lectern book, etc.

    Maybe only those exceptionally austere Scottish protestant offshoot chapels, that don't allow any decor at all, would not have those symbols in them someplace.

  2. btw, don't know if anyone reading read any Amado Crowley books, but he wrote that his dad was very much into the Bible as a book to live by.

    Method: science

    Aim: religion

    fire!: um, missed labyrinth group target mark, possibly hit undepicted outer ring where no secrets are kept, or something.

    solution: invoke Incunabula and hide out as someone else, in full view of entire planet
