(quote) Marian-83994 said: Great analysis about the mind control aspect of ritual. Also they like the processing in liturgical garb. Once I sang professionally every week at an Episcopal church and suddently realized how the group of them (servers) were so INTO parading in to the music each week. There is something about ceremony that they enjoyed more than the average human. This was back in 1981 that I saw this and I KNEW they were all gay just from how it was played out each week. Our choir director was a very gifted musician and was also gay. I have recently read an excellent book on these matters from a biochemical standpoint. Mothers trauma changed conditions in the womb and affected the baby in utero.... I posted on it somewhere here......This is highly plausable,,,,
I have read about the presence of the occult among Benedictines. I believe there were Benedictine connections to the Thule Society, the group which spawned the Nazi movement. By no means do I believe that all Benedictines are occultists, but there have been very sinister elements in that order. So it is no surprise that they would end up leading the liturgical movement in the US, along with some Jesuits and others. Eric Gill, the designer of the front cover of the Benedictines' liturgical journal Orate Fratres, was a pederast and pedophile. Basil Stegman, a close associate of liturgical pioneer Virgil Michel, also has been accused. Paul Likoudis might have written an article on deviancy among prominent liturgists. I imagine that the power to create theater and direct others attracts abusers to the field of liturgy. Sometimes I see these people as agents of psychological warfare, especially when they push for destroying altars, statues and the like. At some level I believe at least a few liturgists knowingly pushed for changes that they knew would desacralize the Church in the minds of impressionable massgoers.
