Khlysty

I am quite fond of them. It's an idea remarkably simple in its brilliance: if atonement is a prerequisite for salvation, then the only possible sensible attitude to take towards sin is that it ought to be indulged in, so as to put God to some use. It's a vastly superior system to the banal asceticism that Christian 'scholars' have incrementally advanced and termed "innovation" for the past twenty-five centuries.

Life is change --
How it differs from the rocks
I've seen their ways
Too often for my liking

New worlds to gain
My life is to survive
And be alive
For you

The right to die in Iraq was a right not previously possessed by Americans for twelve long years.  Bush rectified that.

"The central idea of Khlystys' ideology was to practice asceticism."

Huh?

A strange sort of asceticism, they'd routinely engage in ritual orgy before purifying themselves through grueling fasts.

So, you think engaging in orgies and then whipping yourself afterwarsd as punishment is a sound attitude to life? I must disagree...

I'm with Gustaf on this. Just have the orgies and skip the whipping... unless you happen to be into that sort of thing.

     Capital idea, I must say. I would be interested to see how the Christian Fundamentalists would react to the establishment of a Khlysty monastery in rural Kansas by a group of people interested in practicing S&M.
