What the vast majority of Thelemites fail to realise is that Aleister Crowley was a Christian.
Anyone who seriously took the time to study him and his work can see that, it is blatantly obvious. Who do you think Horus is? The crowned and conquering child King? Well another Sun God like Jesus was to come to represent.
Thelemites will argue and argue about this, saying no you are wrong, Thelema is not patriarchal, we have Nuit and Babalon.
Nuit is the Mother Goddess, just like the Roman Catholic Mother Mary, as Catholics secretly worship the Mother Goddess, the creator of all, and even dress in her robes, just like Thelemites do. Hadit is the Father, he is Osiris, and not as important as the Mother Goddess and Ra-Hoor-Khuit is Jesus, Horus, the Sun God, the fake God, the God who gets all the glory in ALL patriarchal religions, doesn't matter which one, they are all the same.
How is this any different to Roman Catholic?
Babalon is the Roman Catholic Church, the whore of pleasure, the one who wears luxurious robes and jewels, erm hello, anyone looked at the Pope lately?
Anyone familiar with Catholic Consecration Ceremony will know that the robes and jewels are also mentioned in there, as being of the Mother Church, our Lady. Our Lady Babalon, the RC Church! "Whore of Babylon" refers to the Roman Empire, which changed it's name several hundred years later to the Holy Roman Catholic Church. See article the Septimontium for more information.
Aleister Crowley called himself the Beast, because he knew that the Beast is MAN, yes men. Men who have animalistic desires that need to be tamed, in order for them to become GODDESS-like.
Which is why in the RC Church and the cult of Mithra before it, the Priests used to be eunuchs and celibate, as they knew that men were not creators like women, but they didn't want women to know this, oh no. Rather than take the route of enlightenment through the Goddess, whom a High Preistess represents on Earth, they became enunchs.
Aleister Crowley uses the number of the Beast 666 during his initiation ceremonies for Argenteum Astrum, his Thelemic Order, where the Aspirant has it branded on to his forehead and right hand, even women, showing they are becoming like men.
The ideal long term goal of all Freemasonic 'Brotherhoods' being that they want to create men who are capable of giving birth, then they can do away with women altogether, and they will have perfected the ideal man, without the nasty feminine side they hate so much.
"The Misogynist of the American Chemical Society, Boston Aug. 27, 1880:
"The Carolingian revival of classical learning revived also the homosocial subculture of the ancient philosophers. That subculture was legitimated in orthodox Christian theology as an earthly approximation of the world to come after the resurrection. This was most clearly articulated by Freemasonry's Carolingian scholar, Johanees Scotus Erigena, at the time court philosopher to Charlemagne's grandson, Charles the Bald.
"At the Resurrection," Erigena wrote, "sex will be abolished and nature made one.... There will then be only man, as if he had never sinned."
As Georges Duby explained the passage, "in this life such a reunification was impossible. It had (only) to be waited and hoped for (and) man must prepare for it by abstinence." Then, with Christ's return, "the end of the world would do away the dual sexuality or, more precisely, with the female part of it. When the heavens opened in glory, femininity, that imperfection, that stain on the purity of creation, would be no more."
Copied from: The Knight, the Lady and the Priest (on the back row in Chess).
There are many Devils that walk this world-
Devils large and devils small;
Devils so meagre and devils so stout;
Devils with horn and devils without;
Sly devils that go with their tails upcurled;
Bold devils that carry them quite unfurled:
Meek devils and devils that brawl;
Serious devils and laughing devils;
Imps for churches and imps for revels;
Devils uncouth and devils polite;
Devils black and devils white;
Devils foolish and devils wise-
But a laughing woman with two bright eyes
is the Worst Devil of All."
The number for women is 333, and yet again, as Christians demonised anything to do with 'left' this being the feminine, or Satan, which is Isis the Dog Star Sirius or Lucifer, which is Venus, represented by the pentagram.
Aliester Crowley made 333 the number of Choronzon the evil demon who tempts you away from completing the great work, and makes you forever stuck in the abyss.
Then give women the number 156, which is Babalon, but that isn't a woman, it is the RC Church, so yet again the feminine has been completely removed. Nuit might be the most important, but we still have a conquering King, like Zeus, Jesus, Nimrod and all the other patriarchal Sun Gods before it. Horus is the EAGLE headed King, a Cro-Magnon patriarchal King God, just like all the others.
Roman Catholic Church
Now on to Aleister Crowley's Book of Law, which he wrote himself and pretends to have channelled it.
And here talking in allegory about the RC church, and the fact they wear red and purple robes - II:24 Behold! these be grave mysteries; for there are also of my friends who be hermits. Now think not to find them in the forest or on the mountain; but in beds of purple, caressed by magnificent beasts of women with large limbs, and fire and light in their eyes, and masses of flaming hair about them; there shall ye find them. Ye shall see them at rule, at victorious armies, at all the joy; and there shall be in them a joy a million times greater than this. Beware lest any force another, King against King! Love one another with burning hearts; on the low men trample in the fierce lust of your pride, in the day of your wrath.
III:11 This shall be your only proof. I forbid argument. Conquer! That is enough. I will make easy to you the abstruction from the ill-ordered house in the Victorious City. Thou shalt thyself convey it with worship, o prophet, though thou likest it not. Thou shalt have danger & trouble. Ra-Hoor-Khu is with thee. Worship me with fire & blood; worship me with swords & with spears. Let the woman be girt with a sword before me: let blood flow to my name. Trample down the Heathen; be upon them, o warrior, I will give you of their flesh to eat!
III:12 Sacrifice cattle, little and big: after a child.
III:14 Ye shall see that hour, o blessèd Beast, and thou the Scarlet Concubine of his desire!
III:43 Let the Scarlet Woman beware! If pity and compassion and tenderness visit her heart; if she leave my work to toy with old sweetnesses; then shall my vengeance be known. I will slay me her child: I will alienate her heart: I will cast her out from men: as a shrinking and despised harlot shall she crawl through dusk wet streets, and die cold and an-hungered.
III:44 But let her raise herself in pride! Let her follow me in my way! Let her work the work of wickedness! Let her kill her heart! Let her be loud and adulterous! Let her be covered with jewels, and rich garments, and let her be shameless before all men!
III:45 Then will I lift her to pinnacles of power: then will I breed from her a child mightier than all the kings of the earth. I will fill her with joy: with my force shall she see & strike at the worship of Nu: she shall achieve Hadit.
I could also start quoting from the Bible, as that also points to the Whore of Babylon as being the RC Church, but you can do your own research on that.
Thelema is deeply patriarchal, just like all other mainstream religions. Babalon is the Roman Catholic Church, no doubt about it, and Thelemites, by refusing to accept this, you are either in denial because you are brainwashed, or you know this and support the fact your religion is a lie.
To all Thelemites who feel the need to constantly attack me over this, sorry, but this is the truth and I won't stop putting it out there just because it upsets you. So even though you all keep blocking me then spouting lies about me all over and think that is acceptable. Then have a go at me for stopping you from posting your lies all over my pages. Well I have news for you, these things work both ways, either give me the chance to stick up for myself when you are slagging me off, or expect your lies and hatred to be deleted.
