Decree Against Christianity
Declared on the day of salvation,
on the first day of the Year One
(â€”on September 30, 1888 of the false time-chronology)
War to the death against depravity: depravity is Christianity
First proposition.â€” Every type of anti-nature is depraved. The most depraved type of man is the priest: He teaches anti-nature. Against the priest one doesn’t use arguments, one uses the penitentiary.
Second proposition.â€” Every participation in divine service is an assassination attempt on public morality. One should be more severe toward Protestants than toward Catholics, more severe toward liberal Protestants than toward the orthodox. The criminal character of a Christian increases when he approaches knowledge . The criminal of criminals is consequently the philosopher.
Third proposition.â€” The accursed places, in which Christianity has hatched its basilisk eggs, should be razed to the ground and be, as vile places of the earth, the terror of all posterity. One should breed poisonous snakes there.
Fourth proposition.â€” The sermon on chastity is a public instigation to anti-nature. Every display of contempt for sexual love, and every defilement of it through the concept “dirty” is original sin against the holy spirit of life.
Fifth proposition.â€” With a priest at one’s table food is pushed aside: one excommunicates oneself therewith from honest society. The priest is our chandalaâ€”he should be ostracized, starved, and driven into every kind of desert.
Sixth proposition.â€” One should call the “holy” story by the name that it deserves, as the accursed story; one should use the words “God,” “Saviour,” “redeemer,” “saint” as invectives, as criminal badges.
Seventh proposition.â€” The rest follows therefrom.
