Yet surely, the protestants, the jews, and why, even those wily Americans, have all made some fine inroads unto art.
And surely discount not, the brits.


Maybe, isolated instances. It's hard to care, though. I'm fairly sure my theory is watertight.

Emphasis on "fairly".

We'll take that maybe.
But you lose us with the "isolated instances".
We are dicussing art, within the realm of religion?
Is not all art isolated, an instance, most especially when confronted with doctrine?

The catholics have it on the themes, but I dare say there is more....

I can't see youtube vids where I live, not that I'd click anyway. I have no idea what baptists are. Britney Spears and the Waltons?

You has a point.

Same thing, at the basic impulse. Yet you have the tards who try to regiment the social, using others' art: a clear case of the artist having no conception of what I believe you term 'the perimeter'. But then there are those who do it without art. At the end of the day, I'll take my orders from the people who thought up 'Job' than 'Wealth of Nations'. From a man who believes in talking giraffes not from a man who believes he and his associates have a divine right to rule because they are richer than me.

The proddies are responsible for 'The Word', Euro-contextually, for sure.

John Donne was for sure a man who saw the possibilities in both kinds of Anglo giraffe-communion.

I concur, except for bit about art and the perimetre.
Here, it truly must be said: art, to my mind, entails going a bit beyond.
Though you are well right to qualify, some have no conception.
Art for art's sake is all very well, but for it to be remarkable, rules must be broken. With past due and full recognise.

And to bring it back on topic, there is always Joyce to remember.
Talk about a conflict of spirituality.

Well, what I meant was that those who use others' art to rule: the Bible, the Koran, the mysteries, to divide and conquer: fuck 'em. Make yer own. Hands off. It's ours.

Damn.
You are in top form.
:bow:

Using the written word for profit, greed, and malice.
Is evil.
But surely, it is the nature of the beast?
In that religion has always, for better or worse, both eradicated and elucidated texts?

Thinking about the library here.
Burnt down by one.
Built up by another.

I reckon well that we are now in one of those in flux windows of time.
Should art emit the immediate?

'Text' is new in my country. 1600s stuff. We're a group of Odinist, Maryan peoples.

A strawman.

And the strawman and the wicker man perversion are often connected.

So, yeah, fuck the proddies. Verdi's Requiem is both jazz and anti-jazz.
