       Special thanks to Saint Tertullian, St. Anthony, St. Passidea, St. Pachonius, St. Thalelaus, St. Simeon, St. Barnabas, St. Bernard, St. Theresa, St. Catherine, St. Francis of Assisi and all the monks, priests and bishops of the days of old and their antiquated belief-system...

    Watch as The Church tries to bring these archaic ways to the forefront of modern religion once again.

    dotsHeavenly Begotten Children pt. 1dots

    A legion of devils has entered a herd of swine:

    All the old creeds, they decayed...
       The smoldering remains; how they lit my lungs ablaze!
    -As I inhaled the rejection of religion
       You talk of progress?
                         Little secrets formed?
    A ritual of redundant smiles
    Groan over the syn as you slip it in
    Know the rigid frame; thoughts and throats- it's all the same
    Obscurity, you disavow me
    Forgotten philosophers; who did mourn thee?
    Ruins of the past, altars made of stone will never last
       This decaying world perfumed with the fragrance of our lives...
    I listen at the gate
    Here is a pamphlet about how abortion is the safest way to go
    -circulate amongst The Faithful
                         "On thee I will build My Church"
    Satan's snares, they manifest, in the form of female sex
                         "Woman, you ARE the Gate to Hel"

    So you want to be a Saint?

    Keep yourself too miserable to be wicked:
       -Insert a sharp stone into your foot and leave it be
       -Rest in a nest of red-ants and submit to His decree
    Delirium of The Fallen, who was it that sought your ruin?
    Satan brings the downfall of men through the enticements of women
    Make thyself a eunuch for The Kingdon of Heaven's sake!
    Mortify your flesh:
       I will sew you up for years in fresh-cut animal skins with,
                                under African sunrise,
       only an aperture to breathe through forgiveness of your sins
    Now pray and fast
       Fast and pray!
    -With no opening, save mouth and nose, in these permanent pelt clothes;
    You've accumulated many things, both still and animate
    Crawl into the Hyena's den,
       now naked in skin that has not known water in several years,
    lay down and await your final end
    Satan does not want you now, and willfully so...

    You wish your place at His side?

    Eat nothing but grass and make your clothes of it as well-
          -interwoven with thorns
    Never to speak again
    For this is how they showed their Faith in the days of yesterwhen
       Weld an iron-hoop from your waist down to your knees and limp about for years
    Every Sunday, in His honor, wrap yourself in rope so tight you break out in sores
    -Sores that you may never treat
    Never bathe
    Now your soul is truly saved;
                     No one could stand your presence,
    Satan will pass you by...

    Weep over your weakness when you need to eat to live
          Sleep on splintered, knotted-wood and shards of glass
    Lay naked in the snow for days or rolling 'round a bed of thorns
          Rub salt, pepper and vinegar in the wounds before you go to Mass
    Place dead mice in your mouth!
       Heavenly begotten children:
    Remain faithful and true to the polygamous god you have married
    Eat the flesh and drink the blood of your sacrificed spouse
    -And watch the children vomit crooked pins

    Satan, at times, fills human brains with knowledge
    For thinking is blasphemy and,
                according to the scriptures,
                                punishable by death!
    Don't think; they'll burn you alive
    Don't think; they'll burn you alive
    Pallid, bloodless complexion and malicious forgiveness
    My clergy is bloodthirsty
       Satan is present at every service
          At every Mass with a legion of devils
             Let the consecrated bells ring
       "But to the unbeliever---
    Lord, visit him wha' did employ him,
       Lord, visit him wha' did employ him
    And pass not in Thy mercy by them,
       Nor hear their pray'r,
    But for Thy people's sake destroy them
       And dinna spare!"
    -Robert Burns (Holy Willie's Prayer)

      You start with that picture and we know we're in for a real treat, hehe. Verra nice! (I mean, ahem . . . bad! bad!)

    Down boy.

    I agree with SE about your use of imagery in this piece. There's an anachronistic feel to some of the language but you use it to good effect here and it's obviously ironical (and mocking, which works for me).

    Though they aren't burning people these days, the technique of control is still alive and well, though it seems the Church has given way to the State, in that regard. Today, the Church is under fire (pun intended) for its lack of policy in the recent past about child molesters, and it's the government that's stealing the show, acting as the boot stomping on a human face, over and over (a la 1984). If this had been written back in the day, you'd have found yourself scourged and marshmallowed!

    I was thinking about the marriage between the headsmen and the clergy, and how when this was all going on, some of the executioner-types were actually richer than the nobility because the scam was . . . when they went after someone the Church seized their property, and the butcher received a sizable cut of the profits (so if you were well off and had some land, they'd accuse you just to take yo sheet).

    Nice work on this one!

      this is very interesting but i know i have not caught half of all you allude to.

    i follow your digs at the different ways religion have treated/thought of women over the years though... christianity blames the fall of man on the woman taking the first bite of the apple... in islam women must be covered from head to toe and in such sweltering middle eastern conditions its almost as if they are being punnished for being alive... even now.

    it is interesting that the very gender that physically pushes life into the world is the one that is deemed the lesser right throughout the ages...

    you have some good imagery and allusion throughout this piece. your use of different formatting was quite effective and not too over stated which i appreciated. i thought changing the size of the font was a magical touch as it kinda made it seem like an insignificant whisper or mutter and yet there was such truth held within these little moments.

    can you let me know when the one after pt 1 is posted?
