The conflict between pagan and Christian views crystallized around the dichotomy Hvítakristr and Red Thórr, becoming a recurring theme in events saga near the time of conversion, as in this poem
contempt for Steinunnn, mother Chorus Gestasson, describing how Thórr sank the ship from a Christian priest, Thangbrand, showing Steinunn Christ thus was the weakest God:
|Þórr Bra Þvinnils dýri
Þangbrands or Stad Longu,
hristi Bord beysti ok
ok bards Laust við Jordu;
munat skid hum SAE Sidan
sundfært Atals grundar,
hregg því in hart Tok leggja,
hanum kennt, í Spânu.
|[Thórr altered the course of Thangbrand
horse long Thvinnil 1 ,
he threw and hit
the board bow 2 and broke
it to solid ground;
the Atall bedding ski 3
shall not be later floating in the sea
as the gale disastrous caused by it all chipped in kindling.
|Braut fyrir bjollu gæti
(bond Raku val strandar)
móstalls vísund allan;
hlífðit Kristr, Tha er kneyfði
knorr, málfeta varrar;
Litt hygg ek in Gud Gaetti
hreins Gylfa in einu.
|The killer’s relatives’ ogresses 4

(the gods chased the stallion chain 7 )
Christ did not take care of step sea tile 8
when the cargo-boat disintegrated;
I think God -kept

It was during this period of conflict between religions that Thórr hammer amulets, Mjollnir, the increase in popularity as ornaments, perhaps in response to Christians weraing the symbol of the cross. Jewellers were still hedging their bets by making foundry molds crosses and Thórr hammer simultaneously, as shown by this mold soapstone tenth century, found in Trendgården, Jutland, Denmark.
Anybody who follows a fucking religion where a person could construe from church doctrine that there is something “sinful” about being born without the benefit of a father … that person has no brains to think with!
I pray the goddamned Roman Catholic nuns who did this will burn forever in the hell they created. If not there then I pray they are sent to Náströnd, in Hél, to be chewed on forever by Nidhogg.
“The Irish government has acknowledged mounting calls to investigate a mass grave where almost 800 “illegitimate” babies and children are believed to have been buried.
The remains are near the site of a former home for unmarried mothers and their children in Tuam, County Galway.
The children were buried together, without a coffin or gravestone, and dumped in a former concrete septic tank.
…The St Mary’s home in Tuam was run by Catholic nuns and housed women dealing with the “shame” of having a baby out of wedlock.”

Ēostre is a celebration of the spring equinox. It was celebrated millennium before Christianity. Ēostre is pronounced “East – rah“. Rabbits and eggs were considered sacred at this time of year as symbols of fertility.
Ēostre is still celebrated … in fact … Heathens and Pagans celebrated Ēostre or Ostara last month on the 20th.
For 20 years I was a member of an independent Christian church. To avoid confusion between a Heathen Holy Day and Christian Holy Day some of their scholars began calling Easter by the phrase “Resurrection Sunday”.
I think every Christian would take that advice and maybe forget about the bunnies and eggs too.
Why is it that most kristins don’t want Heathens and/or Pagans “praying” for them?
I have a kristin friend who was having an operation … nothing really serious but this friend was nervous. I told him I would ask Frigg to hold him in her love and Odin and Thor to give him strength.
He said “Thanks, but I have more than enough prayers going up for me. I don’t want God to think I’m a pest!”
With an attitude like that he needs more than a few prayers said on his behalf. He needs a good old fashioned attitude adjustment right on his chin!
