A reading of the Old Testament does indicate that Yahweh does differentiate between different tribes, nationalities, ethnicities, etc. and hence his designation as the God of Israel (tribal deity) much as you might say Zeus was God of Greece. Anyone following the biblical religion might be better off following the morals of the Old Testament over the New. i.e. an "eye for an eye" as it's called in the Old Testament is simple retributive justice rather than blind violence (killer kills someone, killer suffers the death penalty and so on).

The slavianic Veda reports that an Aryan was sent to the Jews to free them from the fangs of a demon. They say his name was Radomir (Rado = Joy, Mir = Peace). So the teachings of Jeus/Radomir was intended for Jews and Jews only. They killed him, recognized the potential of his teaching to weaken their enemies, injected some more stuff and sent it back to Aryans.

That is one take on the Jeus story. I have no opinion on it until I studied it more deeply.

Beside that most symbolism of NS stems from heathenism, infact, NS grew out of the revival movement of heathenism.

That's not a very comprehensive answer. Why do you think this is so? Here are some reasons that I can think of off of the top of my head:

It places man outside of his own power, i.e. subject to the vague whims of an external deity and a rebellious devil. Man is, and always has been, his own master; Christianity teaches subservience.

It is impious, teaching what I see as a fradulent view of the divine and God.

It is denigrating to the nobility of man and the beauty of the world, suggesting a belief in a primeval episode of sin which casused an existential catastropher. My belief that man is progresses from lower to higher moral excellence under his own agency- not that of a deity or a savior.

It is a fearful religion and plays upon deep-seated fears in the human psyche (rejection, death, and so on).

It is inconsistent with its own source material (i.e. the Hebrew holy writings).

It denigrates women to some extent.

Etc.

@Primus

I was putting in my thoughts on the matter. As, many others before me and more intelligently than I, have expressed their own thoughts.

I agree, though, with your supplementary thoughts on the matter.

In 1851 the New York spiritualist Andrew Jackson Davis, committed to similar reason, published his Spiritual Declaration of Independence in severance to all religion alien and contradictory to Nature's principle laws.

Quote:
We hold it to be a self-evident truth, that the principle of Reason is the greatest and highest endowment of the human mind; that it is the indwelling light and the power of understanding by which man is enabled to read the innumerable sentences and chapters contained in the everlasting volume of Nature! We hold Reason to be the divinely inherited treasure of the human soul, because it sees the indications, studies the principles, and progressively comprehends the countless and infinitely diversified manifestations, of the Universal God.

And we, likewise, hold it to be self-evident, that Nature is the only perfect and unalienable “Revelation” which the Deity has ever given, or ever will give, to mankind. By Nature, we apprehend the Material Universe, with its innumerable constellations of Suns, Planets, and Satellites; and the Spiritual Universe, with its innumerable spheres of loveliness, and with their multitudinous angelic and seraphic inhabitants. It embraces the stupendous Univercoelum! which comprehends the kingdoms beneath, the powers within, and the boundless firmaments above us. We believe Nature to be the universal exponent of God; and Reason to be the universal exponent of Nature; therefore, that Nature and Reason, combined, constitute the only true and reliable standard of judgment upon all subjects—whether social, political, philosophical or religious—which may come within the scope and investigations of the human mind.

Furthermore, we hold it to be the nature, and tendency, and divine prerogative of the human soul to explore, to investigate, to classify, and reduce to a practical application, every thought and principle, and science, and philosophy, and religion, which rests upon the everlasting foundations of the Universe; and likewise, that it is man’s nature and prerogative to candidly, freely, and fearlessly—with an eye, single to truth—examine all sciences, and discoveries, and mythologies, and theologies, and religions which have been, or may be, developed among men; and that if they do not accord with the immutable principles of Nature and Reason, it is his divine right and authority to openly expose, repudiate, and discard them.

Even a mildly rational mind rebels at some of the notions of Christianity; it doesn't take a scholar or rhetorician to find at least something that is repulsive about it. The good aspects of Christianity are its universal aspects, i.e. charity, prohibition of murder, and so forth, and ought not to be the focus of too much attention. Even primitive tribes operate by some sort of natural morality.

Rather akin to, say, Pope's Universal Prayer imo, at least in that it suggests a more humanistic view of the divine.

TheStormer has earned the respect of peers.

In my personal opinion, yes. With that said, I support several racially conscious Christian organizations such as Aryan Nations and the Klu Klux Klan. Ultimately, I think we should focus on the REAL threats facing our folk, such as Judaism, Islam, humanism, and liberalism. If there is any threat from Christianity, it is the frighteningly powerful influence of the Christian Zionists, such as John Hagee, Pat Robertson, Glenn Beck, Michelle Bachmann, Jerry Falwell, and Hal Lindsey.
