    Unless of course one considers certain laws as given by a God. In this case the execution of a criminal could be considered a sacrifice that is needed to restore the divine order that was upset by the actions of the criminal. For example, in the older Frisian law codes there are mention of what kind of punishment those who violated the sanctity of sacred places should receive.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.

    What law did Jesus or Isaac break? Why would Germanics consent to this perversion of morality as if central to Weltanschauung? John 3:16 is basically post-natal abortionist propaganda. Christians claim to be about family values but base their religion on the concept of a father who would execute his own son to appease the mob and rub shoulders with the worst faggot abortionists in the world--Jewry. Somehow, having your son killed will teach the killers a thing or two about guilt and that will turn them into better people. What a fine lesson.

    Lol, since there's not much of a historical record about our ancient ancestors, I like to think that they were as soundly minded as we are today. I imagine they didn't really believe in the stories of the Gods, as our reality then was just as non-supernatural and boring as it is today. And so, the idea of sacrificing/killing anyone for "the Gods" would be viewed as insane nonsense. Now, euthanizing someone who is in pain is a different matter, and having some celebration of their life ceremony ... I could see that. But who knows, the soundly minded tend not to be the most vocal and aggressive, so perhaps I have it wrong. The lunatic thugs may have run things back then. Without a time machine, we'll never know.
    We need a reservation system for our people and our own ethnic-nationalist faith, where we'll have sermons about our people and nations, real history, science, philosophy, etc., in addition to our older religions. Throw in some open bar nights, comedy club hours, music and dance, etc., and it'll be a cracker barrel of good times lol.

    I never could understand the Old Testament God who demanded the Semitic sacrifice of one's son as loyalty and the New testament God who forgave the sinners and promoted forgiveness. The latter was angry, and the modern God is more loving. The stories are more like morals and teachings similar to Aesop fables?
