O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth,
Who have displayed Your splendor abuove the heavens!
From the mouth of infants and nursing babes You have established strength
Because of your adversaries,
To make the enemy and the revengeful cease.
When I consider the heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have set in place,
What is man that You are mindful of him,
And the son of man that You care for him?
Yet You have made him little lower than God,
And you crown him with glory and honor!
You make him to rule over the works of Your hands;
You have put all things under his feet,
All sheep and oxen,
And the beasts of the field,
The birds of the heavesn and the fish of the seas.
O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth!
Psalm 8:1 – 9
My focus this year, photographically, has been to find beauty in Worcester. I spent all of Freshman year bemoaning it hideous nature, the trash so thoughlessly scattered, the dead weeds and empty-eyed buildings yawning blackly, the danger to innocent women from the suburbs who never worried for a minute before about rapists.
Now I am going to share the best of my pictures capturing the beauty God revealed to me in Worcester over the course of this year. Today: Fiery Flowers:

PS. These guys terrify me. Somebody make them go away.

No kidding! That’s really scary! (Not your picture, though.)
Wow… so much hate. It’s amazing.
When a group really believes there’s a conspiracy against them… Did you notice that one of the requirements for membership is you can prove you’re 100% white? How would you do that?!
I especially like how they prove that whites are superior by pulling out verses about the nation of Israel.
Did you catch the part where they said that anyone following the “jewish” version of Christianity is not allowed to join. What’s the jewish version of Christianity? Are they refering to Judaism, or something else?
I guess this just goes to show that there’s really no logic in racism. Quoting parts of the Bible regarding Jews as support for white supremacy, while banning Jews (subject of the quotes!) from joining?
Maybe they’d better stick to burning crosses in innocent peoples’ yards and looking menacing in their white sheets.
“…We do not follow the “jewish” version of Christianity.”
This idea is elaborated in the other pages on the site; they suggest that a few generalizations are made about Christ and Christianity:
1.) The mortal Christ was Jewish
2.) We think of Christianity as an offspring of Judaism
3.) Because of 2, Christians must pay some diligence to the Old Testament of God and man
and that these generalizations are wrong. While there is much in favor of refuting the above:
1.) Theories that Jesus studied as a gnostic mystic and portrayed himself as Jewish to align better with the populace He came to save (being the Son of God, I’d say He was pretty mystical)
2.) There are many other ancient religions which Christ et. al. drew upon in Christianity’s founding.
3.) Does not salvation come through His blood alone? Being His follower (should) make the Commandments redundant.
I really think their intents are to sever themselves from Judaism (so hatred of Jews is not hypocritical), rather than see Christianity with a different basis than the post-Jewish perspective (the idea of those given counterclaims).
