- Sri Lankan Poet and Irish Violinist Marry Music
Buddhism and Paganism collide with Hinduism and Catholicism: Colm O’Riain is an Irish violinist. Pireeni Sundaralingam is a Sri Lankan Tamil poet. They’re married and have created a unique music that sounds out their common experience of exile and immigration, in their once outlawed Gaelic and Tamil languages.
Protest St. Patrick's Day
History as told by the Discordians and Wisdom Quarterly
March 17, 461 AD is the feast day of his death. "St. Patrick's Day" is the drunken celebration of the genocide of the Celtic (Irish) people and their culture by Maewyn Succat, who came from Roman England. He was Romanized as Patricius and eventually canonized as "Saint" Patrick.
As a youth, Succat was captured by pirates and held in slavery for six years before escaping. Succat went to England and eventually France where he studied under Germain, the Bishop of Auxerre, for approximately 12 years. At the end of his studies, he became a bishop in the Roman Catholic Church. Patricius claimed he had received a message from God that told him he was to convert Ireland to Christianity by any means necessary.
With the Pope's blessing, Patricius boarded a ship to Ireland. When he first arrived, he was imprisoned for speaking out against numerous Druid leaders and the spiritual tradition they had practiced for generations.
After his release, Patricius traveled Ireland for 20 years converting people to the Holy Roman Catholic Church. Once the Catholic population was the majority in Ireland, the Pope gave St. Patrick orders to start a crusade against the peaceful, Pagan Druid island natives and to kill all who stood in his way.
In short, English or Scottish Maewyn Succat was a slave of pirates, who became a Roman, a Catholic, and a bishop, changing his name to Patricius in the process and conversing with God about killing and subjugating a people with the Pope's blessing. He went to Ireland, a country he had no connection with, and took it upon himself to kill their native traditions.
My plea to my fellow Irish is this: Do not accept this faux celebration of our people! If you drink green beer, do it in PROTEST. Honor the history and culture of our people! This is truly a celebration of -- to use the words of Bill "The Butcher" Cutting -- Roman Popery and not the true history of Pagan Ireland! Instead of accepting the myths surrounding this holiday, get informed and protest it if you see fit.
"St. Patrick's Day," instead of celebrating Ireland, celebrates an anti-Irish Roman and the Church's cultural genocide. Why wouldn't we protest?
