On Abraham’s Second Pillar: almost two thousand years later
Christianity, in its Pauline aspect (which other could there be?) seems the pinnacle at which syncretism, synthesis and irony meet, ambivalence incarnate.
Completely pluralistic in its belief but in the sense that Frankenstein’s artificial progeny was pluralistic; a little bit from this creed, a little of this myth, a bit of this religion (am I being redundant?); albeit not necessarily the best parts.
Mixed, distilled, bottled and souled, err. I mean sold; a sort of rancid brandy, while perhaps, somewhere, the shade of a once and future Hebrew protest leader looks on in horror.
