More Ikons and Flags
- Judeo-Christian Ikons
- IMPORTANT NOTE: The Eternal Order of St. Judas Maccabaeus is NOT an American Foundation, even though some members may reside in the United States, and may have even served in the United States Military. The Order of St. Judas is a definitively Judeo-Christian institution who believes in, exclusively worships, and specifically follows the Judeo-Christian God as described in the Holy Bible. The United States Constitution, as it is written today, stands diametrically opposed to the Judeo-Christian Tradition in many different, and fundamental, ways. The First Amendment states the following:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…
– Constitution of the United States of America
Now, patriotic lawyers and theologians may quibble, but the fact remains that the Judeo-Christian tradition has always been, and still is, a religion that was established between the LORD God of Israel and Abraham nearly 4,000 years ago. To ‘make no law respecting the establishment of religion,’ yet to legally allow the open practice of Paganism, even Satanism, is to actively disrespect and even directly oppose the Judeo-Christian tradition. For all believing Jews and Christians, the first commandment of Moses is explicit in its terminology. It states:
I am the LORD your God. You will have no other gods except Me.
Thus, the explicit legal refusal to respect the ‘establishment’ of the Judeo-Christian religion(s) is in total violation of the First Commandment of the Old Testament, a fundamental law and religious obligation that all believers in Hebrew (non-Pagan) monotheism are expected to obey. Hebrew monotheism traditionally means Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, but no other religions, none. It must be remembered that, for at least the past 1,000 years, every Judeo-Christian kingdom (or nation) throughout the known world have considered all other faiths as Pagan religions which were typically prohibited by law. This Biblical understanding and legal outlook is embedded in the English language.
Pagan– One who is not a Christian, Muslim, or Jew, especially a worshiper of a polytheistic religion. One who has no religion. A non-Christian. A hedonist. A Neo-Pagan. Not Christian.
– American Heritage Dictionary
In short, and by any reasonable standard of understanding, the Ten Commandments specifically excludes the practice or ‘free exercise thereof’ of any and all forms of Paganism (non-Judeo-Christian-Islamic religions). This has been the traditional policy whether in America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, whether in the world of the living or the world of the dead.
- Judeo-Christian-Islamic Ikons
- According the very words of the U.S. Constitution, the Judeo-Christian tradition is truly being thwarted, oppressed, and even violently opposed, because nearly any ‘free-exercise’ of this tradition has already been deemed to be an ‘establishment of religion’. Logically speaking, any ‘free exercise’ of the Judeo-Christian religions of Judaism or Christianity, is at least a partial, if not a full ‘establishment of religion’ in the minds and souls of individual citizens. This is because, in reality, nearly all religious beliefs and practices have been deeply embedded and permanently ‘established’ by the parents and families of American children before the age of 18. In truth, full implementation of the U.S. Constitution would inevitably result in the Kingdom of the Anti-Christ.
- Against the U.S. Constitution
- In summary, the Order of St. Judas does not advocate any sort of violent disobedience towards the U.S. government. However, the Order openly, publically, and decisively opposes the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and all of its ramifications, whether in the past, the present, or in the future near or far. Here is the official position of the Eternal Order of St. Judas Maccabaeus.
