This is a post I just did for my non-christian website. I would like to share it here as well.

Thinking Lesson Two — The HH Factor

If you have never gotten the basics of political science this will be your most important lesson.

When dealing with any group of people there are two subgroups within every major one that you must coordinate with the HH factor. HH = history and histrionics(look that one up).

Subgroup 1. The ones who run their mouths to incite angry emotional responses.

Subgroup 2. What the majority of the rest of the group really thinks.

All social/political/religious groups have these two distinct subgroups.

The Jewish religion and its offshoot of Christianity are textbook examples of the HH factor in action.

The Jewish people of thousands of years ago were engaged in holy wars where they exterminated nations like the Canaanites for worshipping false gods. That is history. Whatever their religious history, the Jewish people today are family oriented, smart, talented, hard working, charitable, and peaceable. For all of these reasons they tend to prosper in life’s endeavors. Their ideas about being God’s chosen may be a trifle pretentious but really, who does that hurt? They do not insist, as does Christianity, that everyone has to believe as they do. Yet they are prime targets for a subgroup 1.

And Christianity? It rose to be the dominant religion in the western world because a small but well armed group started killing and torturing anyone who did not seem inclined to give up worship of their own(Pagan or Jehovah) Deities. That‘s history. Christianity became a target in its turn.

Oh all right! I will define histrionics for you so we can finish this lesson.

Histrionics

Noun, | ,hɪstri’ɑnɪks

: a deliberate display of emotion for effect

From DictionaryBoss online

Christianity climbed to the top of the religion heap through mass murder, torture, and thievery of its victims assets. Long ago, the Jewish people commited genocide in the name of their God and again, claimed all the assets of their victims. This is history. Before the rise of Christianity the Pagan religions were into forcing their daughters and sons to be temple prostitutes and many of the “worship” practises were orgiastic instead of spiritual. These practices generated a large income for the temples. This is history too.

Subgroup 1 constitutes the minor but very vocal rabble element, the extremists, the criminal element that exists in every major group. Those individuals who grab onto something speciously holy sounding to find fault with and therefore have an excuse to persecute one of the other groups..These are the warmongers, the ones who shout down the wishes of the majority in order to fill their own pockets. Did you notice the financial element in the group histories above?

Do any of you, Christian or Jew, or Pagan, want to be judged by the history of your ancestors? Do you feel personally responsible for what they did? Do any of you think it is ok to sexually molest and prostitute your children in the name of your Pagan deity? Is it ok to rob and murder your neighbors in the name of your god? The vast majority of you, no matter your beliefs, are going to answer NO! to all of the above. You are subgroup 2.  

Thinking Assignment #2

It is your job to deal with the subgroup 1 in your own system of beliefs. This is politics. How are you going to go about this?

Think about it.

Bonus Question

What subgroup1 in the U.S. is currently hogging the public eye with their histrionics against a major group?
