I read about this in the Oresteia. In this context, it was the odour remaining from an act of murder that could only be removed by a revenge killing.

brentan comments on Aug 11, 2019:
I think American Christianity has become political rather than Biblical. The spirit of Christianity and its lack of interest in politics is well expressed at James 1:27: Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their afflictions, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.

brentan comments on Aug 11, 2019:
It is possible to join the two ideas but the interesting thing for me is that it shows the split in the New Testament between those (James' group) who think Jesus came to preach obedience to the Mosaic Law and those (Paul's group) who believed the Law was made obsolete because Christ fulfilled it.

Is the term "Christian White Supremacy" appropriate?

Yes it is. They're not claiming superiority just because of skin colour. They are conflating their colour with their Judeo-Christian heritage which brought about their supposed cultural superiority.

brentan comments on Aug 11, 2019:
Competitive economies seem to work great to encourage innovation in just about everything. And I trust it's true that people all over the world are rising above the poverty line. Nonetheless, the neoliberal market economy sorely needs to be controlled because I think it trades money for meaning, sucking the meaning out of peoples' lives as it raises them out of poverty.

Who needs a savior when we have science and Hitchens wisdom?
brentan comments on Aug 11, 2019:
The saviour was the person who offered eternal life to humanity, making life in this world meaningful. Now that most people suppose there is no existence after death, we have to find meaning enough in this life. Will people like Christopher Hitchens help people achieve this?

brentan comments on Aug 9, 2019:
I couldn't read it without disabling AdBlocker. I've always thought of it as either communist or Christian but maybe that's just being Eurocentric. Europeans seem to be comfortable with social democracy as a compromise between capitalism and socialism. It's not working so well now, what with mass immigration and the neoliberal market system. We've come a long way from the Keynesian model. They say it wouldn't work in today's economy but I don't know why.

It seems the further you got from Islam's political centre, the more moderate the religion would be. I got this from the book I'm reading now, Saharasia.
