We followers and practitioners of the older, more traditional, more mature and simpler stone and copper age religions are frequently scorned and ridiculed by followers of the younger bronze and iron age religions. But I’ve never known it to go further than that. Who ever heard of anyone getting burned at the stake for praying the sun up, or praying the moon up?
Fact is, once the later religions got going well they were too busy killing one another off to bother with anything as simple and harmless as sun worship. They had important matters of nuance, doctrine, hair-trigger ‘kill-them-all-and-let-God-sort-them-out’ heresies.
Iron age Christians frequently refer to Catholics, for instance, as ‘the Great Satan’. Iron age Muslims, similarly often refer to Christians as the Great Satan. Nobody’s ever been called the Great Satan for praying up the sun in the morning and down at night.
Bronze age Hebrews, meanwhile, were slaughtered and dispersed from the Middle East by bronze age Romans following a hybridized bronze age religion. After which the bronze age Hebrews were accused of killing Christ and treated as criminals and worse throughout Europe and Russia for 2000 years.
Nobody ever accused anyone who prays the sun up in the morning and down at night of killing Jesus. Nobody ever ran sun worshipers out of any country I can think of.
Fact is, though, someone should do something about the damned moon worshipers. Those people really piss me off.
