Mayday

I celebrated Mayday the traditional way for the first time this Mayday.  I actually danced around the maypole and helped weave the ribbons around the pole.  I also jumped over a fire after putting my intentions into the fire via some sticks. I met a group of like-minded people.  Over the years most of my friends have had differing political views, most were conservatives.  My journey to find people with shared interests has been long and arduous, mentally.

There are things that I did appreciate about Roman Catholicism, but now I see most of the symbolism to be an attack on the Jewish faith.  The Romans took the newly formed christian faith and manipulated the imagery and words to control the masses and attack the Jews.  This attitude reached a high point with the holocaust.  So I no longer have respect for the christian faith.  There are many good people who are christians, though.

The message of Christ could be interpreted as this,  If a magical, miraculous person comes into your midst, such as an angel, you are to kill him or her and eat him or her.  Yuck.  I prefer to forgo cannibalism and take up dancing and fire jumping.
