H&M pulls shirt with skull inside Star of David after complaints

Shoppers said the top – which appears to show a human skull inside a Star of David – was offensive and could be interpreted as anti-Semitic. H&M was quick to pull the piece and apologize.

Fashion brand H&M yanked a controversial tank top that showed a human skull inside a Star of David, apologizing to infuriated customers.

Shopper Eylon Aslan-Levy of the U.K. brought attention to the shirt when he posted a snapshot on Twitter on Sunday, later calling it an “obviously unfortunate mistake.”

It’s not clear what the shirt means – if anything – but altering religious symbols is still dangerous territory.

[The term]…Judeo-Christian tradition…[represents] a myth which buries under the fine silt of rhetoric the authentic, meaningful, and irrevocable distinction which exists between Jewish belief and Christian belief.

The Star of David above the Eagle’s Head on the One Dollar Bill

407570_460438850684749_682951472_n
Over its (bald eagle’s) head there appears a ‘glory’ with 13 mullets (stars) on a blue field. In the current (and several previous) dies of the Great Seal, the 13 stars above the eagle are arranged in rows of 1-4-3-4-1, forming a six-pointed Star [of David].

- Great Seal of the United States, Wikipedia
__________________

Above the American bald eagle’s head the stars of the original 13 states are composed to form a Solomon’s seal symbolic of the union of soul and body, spirit and matter. Each of the interlaced equilateral triangles, one upward turned, the other downward…the two represent the physical world as informed by the spiritual.

- Joseph Campbell, The Inner Reaches of Outer Space: Metaphor as Myth and as Religion (The Collected Works of Joseph Campbell)
__________________

U.S. government versions of the Great Seal show the constellation of 13 stars in a Hexagram pattern (two triangles intersecting to form a six-pointed star). There has been much speculation about the symbolic intent of this Hexagram…

- “Thirteen Stars Forming a Constellation”, GreatSeal.com
__________________

The first die…was cut sometime between June and September, 1782 (i.e. between the design being accepted and its first use), although the exact date is not known. The identity of the engraver is also not known…The blazon does not specify the arrangement of the stars…nor the number of points; the engraver chose Six-Pointed Stars (typical of English heraldry), and arranged them in a larger Six-Pointed Star. No drawing made by the engraver has ever been found…This first die was used until 1841.

Judeo/Christian Quotables – Obama endangers Values says Paul Ryan

Telling evangelicals that Obama compromises both “Judeo-Christian” values and those of “Western civilization” itself is quite a note for the Romney campaign to end on—in keeping with its obsession with the idea of Obama as revenge-seeker, which it pushed over the weekend.

EXTERIOR- The Great Dome- The Great Dome is a hallmark of the Basilica. Its diameter is more than twice that of the central dome of St. Mark’s in Venice, Italy. It features five Marian symbols:

1) Fleur de Lis: a type of lily symbolic of purity and royalty; it signifies Mary as the Queen of Heaven.
2) Cedar of Lebanon: a stately majestic tree symbolizing incorruptibility. Treasured as a source of wealth, its timber was used to build the Temple of Solomon. It is a symbol of both Mary and Jesus.
3) Tower of Ivory: an architectural symbol of virginity and vigilance; ivory symbolizes purity and moral fortitude. In Christian art, the Tower of Ivory symbolizes the Immaculate Conception.
4) Star of the Sea: the most popular interpretation of the Hebrew name Miryam.
5) Intertwining Monograms of A and M: the first letter of the words Ave and Maria, the greeting of the Archangel to Mary at the Annunciation.

Each symbol is contained within a six-pointed Star of David. The six-pointed star of David represents the royal Judaic lineage of Mary-the House of David.

The Four Elemental Phases of the Moon

Elemental Time

It’s unsurprising that noon and summer would be associated with fire, and by that same logic, the full moon should also be in the same category….Earth, in the opposite direction as fire, therefore corresponds with midnight, winter, and the new moon….Air is the element of new beginnings, youth, increase and creativity. As such, it is associated with spring, the waxing moon, and sunrise…Water is the element of emotion and wisdom, particularly the wisdom of age. It represents a time past the peak of livelihood, moving toward the end of the cycle.

Judeo/Christian Quotables – Magic of the Seal of Solomon

 

In Arab sources the hexagram, along with other geometrical ornaments, was widely used under the designation “seal of Solomon,” a term which was also taken over by many Jewish groups. This name connects the hexagram with early Christian, possibly Judeo-Christian magic, such as the Greek magical work The Testament of Solomon.

Correct and Incorrect Symbols, Colors, and Directions of the Four Elements

The Symbols, Colors, and Directions of the Four Elements

After browsing the Four Elements images on Google, one finds that, in the vast majority of cases, the colors, symbols, and directions shown on various images and other forms of symbolic charts, are absolutely incorrect. No wonder their Magick never seems to work! Most of the wizards and witches today can’t even seem to know to retain even the most basic knowledge about the age-old Judeo/Christian tradition of the Four Elements.

In contrast to most of the images on the internet, this photo is completely correct and should be saved as a future reference tool because to truly practice ‘Magick’ the Judeo/Christian way, one must never forget the following:

Green Earth is in the North
Blue Water is in the West
Yellow Air is in the East
Red Fire is in the South

God bless and Shalom.

The Supernatural Power of the Judeo/Christian Name of the LORD…

Occultists based in Judeo-Christian mythology consider the Hebrew names of God (such as Adonai and Elohim) to hold power, and none is more powerful than the tetragrammaton.

The Four Directions, Elements, Times, and Colors of the Four Corners

This simple circular chart of the Cardinal Directions North, South, East, and West is absolutely correct. Ancient Church documents shows this to be the case, as well as several Judaic references. This is it, folks. This is the historical and factual viewpoint of Judeo/Christian Mysticism and ‘Magick’.

A Long, Long Time Ago in a Judeo/Christian Bible Far, Far Away, the Star of David Meant ‘As Above, So Below’

 AsSoDevilstPetersburgLElements

Well, it appears these early years of 21st century spiritual ignorance and darkness seem to be upon us indefinitely, so let’s have a quick pop quiz review of some simple Judeo/Christian Star of David Arithmetic. Here are the main equations:

As Above + So Below = THE
Mountain Top + Valley Bottom = JUDEO/CHRISTIAN
Up High in Heaven + Down Low on Earth = STAR
Top of the Sky + Bottom of the Sea = OF
Heavenly Heights + Depths of the Earth = DAVID

Skeptical religious scholars may still quibble about the ‘As Above, so Below’ metaphor’s ultimate origins (Adam/Eve/Cain/Abel) and whether it was ever in use among the ancient Hebrew Patriarchs, long before written history ever began. Nevertheless, the fact remains that no one will ever know for sure although the Bible seems proof enough there was on-going symbolic understanding about the Star of David among the Israelite Prophets who followed in Moses‘ footsteps.

Now called The Star of David...the symbol…means, simply ‘as above, so below – the spiritual realm is mirrored by the material’. Westerners say on earth as it is in heaven.

- The Star of David or, Seal of Solomon, by ose Sinclair, The Bible Decoded

Indeed, the existing evidence strongly suggests it may well have been the Judeo/Christian tradition who initially introduced the ‘As Above, so Below’ linguistic theme into many different emerging Christian cultures who then later adopted it as their own.
