(A brief tour of the views expressed by the "fathers of the church on Hellenism.)
Saint Basil the Great, Bishop of Caesarea (alias Santa Claus)
«The Greeks are enemies, for they delight in devouring Israel with their mouth wide open» « By mouth the prophet means (see Isaiah 9.11) the power of the sophists speech that will use every argument to confuse the simple believers»
Saint Basil of Caesarea ON PROPHET ISAIAH
«My Order is, (!!!) Show no cowardice when you are faced with the Greeks hypotheses, which resemble wood, or rather a used up torch that has lost its liveliness and all power of the wood, and neither does it display any more the torches glow. Indeed like extinguished, smoking torches they will stain black and dishonor he who would reach for them and bring tears to the eyes of those who would venture near them. The same effect has (The Greeks) falsely named knowledge to the people who would use it»
Basil the Great (alias Santa Claus) (330-379AD) FOREWORD TO THE PROPHET ISAIAH 7.196.3)
JOHN CHRYSOSTOM , archibishop of Constantinople
«Should you look into (Greek ideas) you will see ashes and dust and nothing wholesome but a gaping grave that is the larynx (Of the Greek philosophers) and everything filled with impurities and pus, their doctrines swarming with vermin this is what the Greeks begot and expanded, taking over from the philosophers as for ourselves we will not resign from the fight against them».
John Chrysostom (344-407AD) ON SAINT JOHN THE APOSTLE (SPEECH Ξ΄Σ΄) 59.369.12-370.11
Note the philobarbarian attitude of Saint John Chrysostom:
«The more a nation looks barbaric and is estranged from Greek culture, the more our teachings shine this (faithful) barbarian has conquered the entire world and while all Greek culture is extinguished and destroyed, his (the barbarians) shines brighter every day».
Saint John Chrysostom TO JOHN 59.31.33
Saint John Chrysostom undermines the status of the library of Alexandria with torching statements:
«Why therefore, should the Temple of Serapis (The Library of Alexandria) be considered sacred on account of the books? It should not be! but demons occupy the place rather these are ( the Greeks) demons themselves an invisible altar stands next to them on which human souls are sacrificed so understand and spread the word that demons occupy the place».
John Chrysostom ADVERSUS JUDAEOS 48.851.38 to 852.35
Demons according to the wise Archbishop were the books of the Library of Alexandria and soul-sacrificing altars the Greek Libraries!
Accordingly the PATRIARCE OF ALEXANDRIA THEOPHILUS finally demolished the Library in 391 A.D.:
«In Alexandria all the buildings of the Temple of Serapis had a fate similar to the poetic tales of the Giants during the Kingdom of Theodosius and presiding of Theophilus, the votive offerings were destroyed-And they fought the statues and the votive offerings so «valiantly» that they not only triumphed but stole them as well of the Temple of Serapis it was only the foundation stones they did not remove, and that because of the weight of the stones, that (the foundation stones) were immovable. These militant and avaricious «braves»considered the desecration to be a commendable act. Then we were invaded by so called monks, a sort of people, who lead a pig's life and are obviously deranged, perpetrating millions of unheard of evil acts, thinking these were acts of devotion.. At that time any man wearing a black robe had a tyrant's power and could perpetrate any ugly act in public. To this «virtue» were people transformed by the new religion». EUNAPIOS (346-414AD) VITAE SOPHISTORUM 6.11.4
EUSEBIUS BISHOP OF CAESAREA IN PALESTINE (265-340AD)
«Your poor and wretched people, you have raised from the manure of the Greek excrements and you have seated him among the Lords of Israel, his own people».
Eusebius Praep Evang./ON PSALMS / HALLELUJAH. ΡΙΒ΄(23.1352.34)
Relevant passages from the Writings of Eusebius:
«Abandoning the Greek follies is an act of wisdom». «Abandon all the Greeks philosophers have proposed on the beginning of things». «(The Greeks) perform witchcraft and therewith force the minds of persons». «Their statues are created with witchcraft and they lead you to sorcery». «Of ancient Hebrews and why we preferred their Scriptures over the Greek words». «The Greeks benefited in everything from the barbarians». «Thieves of ideas are the Greeks». «Why after reasonable judgment and wise deliberation we admitted the truth of the Hebrew history». MIGNE PATROLOGY
GEORGE THE MONACHUS CHRONOGRAPHER
«As for myself I consider the Greek culture nonsense, uttered by an evil demon and the saddest of affairs»
GEORGIUS MONACHUS Chronogr. ON THARRA
JOHN CHRYSOSTOM forbids use of Greek names
«None must call his children the (Greek) ancestors names, be that of their father, their mother, their grandfather or their great grandfather, but instead you must use those of the righteous (of the Old Testament)
John Chrysostom De inani gloria et de educandis liberis (690) 641.65
John Chrysostom recruited mercenaries to systematically demolish the Greek majestic buildings:
«John the Great (Chrysostom) gathered monks inflamed with the zeal of the Lord (fanatical monks), armed them with royal mandate and sent them against the heathen (Greek) shrines. The money paid to those working in demolition and to their assistants he did not obtain from the royal treasury (!) but from wealthy ladies he convinced to contribute so they would obtain the blessing of the Lord with the splendor of their faith. In this way he razed to the ground the rest of the buildings (Temples, monuments, graves, houses)». THEODORETUS ECCLESIASTICAL ΙΣΤ΄ HISTORY TO DAMASIUS (Vol.5, 329/8-330/8)
DESPITE THE ENDLESS CLAIMS OF LOVE AND INSPIRATION BY GOD THE JUDAEO-CHRISTIANISM IS UNFORTUNATELY GUILTY OF GENOCIDE AGAINST THE ANCIENT GREEK CULTURE. CLAIMS ABOUT PRESERVATION OF THE ANCIENT GREEK CULTURE BY CHRISTIANITY ARE COMPLETELY UNFOUNDED. THE MOST ADVANCED CULTURE OF HUMAN HISTORY, THE «GREEK CULTURE» HAS FOR 16 CENTURIES BEEN THE TARGET OF HORRIBLE RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION. IT IS UNFORTUNATELY STILL DEMONIZED AND PERSECUTED BY OUR PRESENT SLAVER (Official Greek) EDUCATION SYSTEM THAT UNDERMINES THE GREEK GIFT FOR DISBELIEF AND FRUITFUL QUESTIONING OF TENETS TO PRODUCE ARTFUL SLAVES.
