Thursday Workshop Roar For Matriarchy

Thursday, February 15, 2018 - 18:30

This year, RAG has tapped into a huge and growing interest in matriarchal societies. Did matriarchy ever exist? More importantly, can our beautiful planet be rescued from patriarchy and restored to some kind of gender-egalitarian rule? Tonight's meeting will be given over to planning for an International Women's Day event. Beyond that, we will be thinking of Donald Trump's scheduled visit in October, organizing to give him the Matriarchal welcome he deserves... Steve Bannon has issued a dire warning to US President Donald Trump: "The anti-patriarchy movement is going to dramatically alter the power structure across the world. I think it's going to unfold like the tea party, only bigger," the former White House chief strategist told Bloomberg News. "It's not Me Too. It's not just sexual harassment. It's an anti-patriarchy movement." He added: "Time's up on 10,000 years of recorded history. This is coming. Women are gonna take over. This is real." OK sisters, let's bring it on.

Jesus of Nazareth was a revolutionary freedom fighter, leading a mass movement of Jewish resistance against the Roman occupation of his country. After the defeat of his uprising and his capture and crucifixion by the Romans, the memory of 'the Messiah' was preserved by diverse groups of followers. In one of these traditions, that of Saint Paul, the real Jesus became transformed into a sacrificial lamb. As in ancient traditions throughout the world, blessings were believed to flow from the shedding of blood. It is this mythologized 'Lamb of God' who is still revered by Christians today. In this talk, we will explore why the earliest Christian communities were organized along strictly communist lines.
