Blessed Are The Cheesemakers #nnn

Being someone who does not do God I tend to the view that The Sermon On The Mount was not a real historical event, but a fiction made up by Saul Of Tarsus, the Zionist reject who having failed his exams for God’s chosen peoples’ highest ecclesiatical order, threw a hissy fit and invented his ownn cult, Christiaity and its own profit generator prophet, Jesus.

Blessed are the meek my arse, here on planet reality the mek get spat upon, shat upon and ratted on to quote that other prophet, Paul Simon.

Don’t write off The sermon on the mount entirely however, it does offer us some insights into the human condition. And the parody of it in Monty Python’s Life Of Brian contains the nearest thing to a universal truth we have. When the people at the back who are struggling to hear are getting the ‘Blesseds’ relayed by chinese whispers, blessed are the peacemakers becomes “Blessed are the cheese makers.”


Blessed are the cheesmakers – from The Life Of Brian

Why is this a universal truth?

Because forget the moon landing, the steam engine, the Oxford English Dictionary, The Pyramids, The Temple Of Diana at Ephesus, the complete works of Shakespeare and all that dreck, by far the biggest step humanity took on the road to civilization was the invention of cheese.

Though the food fascists might have a down on it because it is too tasty, too nourishing and too natural, cheese is one of the great props upon which western civilisation is built. If that was not true why are people doing things like this.

Cheese Smuggler Caught With Half a Ton As Sanctions Hit Basic Foodstuffs

While Putin, Obama the EU’s seven dwarfs play geopolitical chess over Ukraine, Syria, oil, the reserve currency and the Grexit, ordinary people suffer, and are reduced to smuggling basic foodstuffs like European cheese into Russia and ordinary natural gas in vast quantities into Germany.

A Russian cheddar-runner (doesn’t sound as romantic as rum-runner or boootlegger I know) was apprehended by Russian border guards as he attempted to cross the border between EU member Poland and the Kaliningrad enclave yesterday with 460kg of European cheese in the boot of his car, thus breaking US led sanctions. The Guardian reports that the man claimed he was not smuggling for commercial purposes, but was a fan of European cheese. It’s strictly for personal use he told customs officials, claiming that he was aware of the law but hoped he would not be searched.

Russia instituted wide-ranging bans on the import of European-made foodstuffs into Russia in a bid to harm EU agribusiness in retaliation for sanctions imposed by the USA and EU on the Russian economy last year. The cheese business has been one of the most visible sectors affected by the ban. Large amounts of cheese specifically for the Russian market were laid down for ageing months and years before the ban. That cheese is now reaching maturity but stockholders can find no market outside Russia for it.

Russian cheese makers have even tried to imitate popular European cheeses instead, with varying degrees of success.

  1. Ian,

    “Blessed are the meek my arse, here on planet reality the meek get spat upon, shat upon and ratted on …”

    He most certainly did not say blessed are the meek for they shall not endure persecution, as you note they do. He said;

    “Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.”

    That means eventually, after this sort of thing, mentioned a few lines later;

    “Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

    Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.”

    Please excuse my “correction” of what you have implied there, it seems to me. I just didn’t want anyone who doesn’t know better to think you have in any sense rightly criticized Him for mis-forecasting an “easy time” on this present “planet reality” for those who follow Him . . Literally just the opposite.

    PS~

    If what I believe we both see coming soon becomes planet reality, you too will be meek, or you will be far more than spat upon. It grieves me to think of the psychological position you will be in . . the position I would have been in myself a while back . . Yikes!

  2. John, no one will ever convince me that “Blessed are the meek” was anything but Roman Empire propaganda.

    You know The Bible much better than I, but here’s one passage I’m aware of.

    Matthew 10:34, 35, “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.”

    That does not sit easily alongside the idea of the meek inheriting the earth. ‘Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition.’

  3. Ian, (I’m sure you think patience is a virtue . . so, be virtuous toward me, please ; )

    “John, no one will ever convince me that “Blessed are the meek” was anything but Roman Empire propaganda.”

    Evidence, sir, you need more than a hunch to justify a totally closed mind, don’t you?

    Regardless, the historical fact is that far from Christianity having sprung up and flourished amid anything remotely resembling favorable conditions, it arose and spread despite extremely strong persecution. The Gospel those earlier Christians heard could not possibly have been forecasting happy days ahead for them . . they would have realized it was false teaching, naturally. The forecast of strong persecution ahead, must therefore have been part of the Gospel they heard from the very beginning, logically speaking.

    We’re not talking about the modern mega-church “prosperity now” bullshit, being spewed by what to me are extremely obvious charlatans, but “planet reality” style severe persecution which logically could not have been unexpected by those early followers of Christ, and which they could directly witness as an actual everyday reality.

    For hundreds of years, first in Judea, and then in Rome (and then in the long bloody Roman Catholic “inquisition”), their own friends and family were imprisoned and tortured (often to death) for not abandoning something . . which was anything but a feel-good sales pitch.

    The concept that is commonly eluded to by “militant atheists”, involving weak-kneed people who embraced religious beliefs for fear of facing harsh realities, is utterly irrational in the case of Christianity, and obviously so, I say.

    Those were people who knowingly embraced “religious” beliefs that could easily get them killed, and many went to their (generally gruesome) deaths, rather than so much as pay lip service to the beliefs dictated by their respective ruling elites.

    There is a reason the Roman Church killed people for translating (or merely possessing) copies of any portion of the Book into the common languages, I say. They did not want “us” to read it for ourselves . . so it makes little sense to me to believe they wrote it.

    And to think those early followers were hearing clever happy-talk PR gimmicks (which would have been so obviously belied by their “planet reality” experiences), and that the Romans later changed it to the opposite “forecast” we can read now, does not explain all those martyrs who would obviously not go to their deaths for happy-talk promises that were so blatantly falsified by relentless persecution.

    No, I say, the original teachings must not have been remotely conducive to the militant atheist’s bullshit explanation for why that “religion” exists on our “planet reality”. Those teachings must have really included words like these, I say;

    “Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.”

    And these;

    “Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

    But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;

    And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.”

    Does that really sound like the sort of propaganda Rome would have wanted people to hear? It sounds like the sort of thing the Romans (and others) might kill people to silence, as I see the world.

    Casual impressions based on individual (half) verses and such, are not reasonable justification for closing one’s mind completely . . I say . . You’ve been conned, all your life, as i was too, by people who don’t want you to take that Book seriously. I detected that conning (conditioning to dismiss essentially), and wondered at it, before I took the basic scientific approach, and put the matter to a test myself ..

    I reasoned that if there really was a God (despite my strong, but potentially “conditioned” inclinations against believing it true), it might be possible to “make contact”. If a real God exists, I reasoned, It might be of the “Abrahamic” sort, which does things like make contact with people . .

    A negative result would be pretty much meaningless, I reasoned, for you cannot, by definition, make such a Being do anything . . which is exactly what is true of a nonexistent God . . but, that’s simply not the only possible result.

    The test was successful, to my utter amazement. And now I understand why all those folks could endure virtually any persecution rather than deny Him. Once that Cat is out of the bag, as the saying goes, there’s no (sane) way to put Him back in.

    And seriously, this “planet reality” we find ourselves in makes a whole lot more sense to me now that He is out in the open, so to speak. Without that awareness, as i implied in my first comment, I shudder to think what an existentialist like myself would face. I know you cannot (sanely) accept what the globalist/elitist agenda demands/will demand of you.

    “And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.

    If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”

    Please reconsider if you can . . be scientific in deed.

    Oh, I didn’t respond to your last point.

    Please consider; What do you think would have actually happened within a typical family in Judea at that time, if one of it’s members became a Christian?

    Or think about what can happen in Muslim families today, when a member converts to Christianity.

    He’s preparing the listener for the inevitable discord and rejection which following Him would lead to for most, it seems rather obvious to me . . But as you say, I am more familiar with the language use involved, and so know the “sword” in contrast to “peace” is used like that in the Book at times, to indicate strong division. (with or without actual swordplay ; )
