The Heretical Cross consists of three components:
- First and foremost, the Christian Cross: ‘On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the door being shut where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you...” And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.” This is the Gospel of the Lord’ (John 20:19-23).
- The Celtic Cross symbolizes the rich and proud heritage of the native British peoples; the English, Welsh, Scottish and the Irish, despite what Mr. Greg said. (To understand this little joke see the paper ‘Darwin Revisited.’) This is without prejudice to ethnic minorities such as the inhabitants of the Isle of Man, Shetland and Orkney Islands.
- The Swastika dates back to 6000 BC and has a varied symbology. The version here is the runic kest, Japanese manji or Hindu sauvastika: some say one sense is masculine while the other is feminine. Its use illustrates the blind, emotional, knee-jerk reaction which has been successfully instilled into many, while not actually being a Nazi swastika at all! A sky-blue swastika was used for many decades by the Finns.
- The barren yellow landscape (on the original home page) symbolized cowardice and the degenerating cycle of blandness and mediocrity which results when sincerely held views are suppressed to protect sensibilities. If an opinion is expressed which is untrue, it can safely be dismissed. If it is true then no amount of dogma, stigmatization or censorship will change the fact. Opinions are suppressed only because some faction has a vested interest in maintaining dishonesty, because practically anything can be made plausible if criticism is disallowed.
