The Puritans Network website has a lot of material on various related subjects, including, to my surprise, the idea of Anglo-American patriotism, or a form of ethnopatriotism.
Their Blueprint Towards an Anglo-American Nation has a good many points with which I can agree; they would probably be accepted by many on the right. However I get the impression they are very much against many of the things I would wish for. They explicitly condemn Kinism, which has been branded with the ‘r-word’, so is anathema to many mainstream Christians.
I am not a Kinist officially, although I’ve said I’m a “small-k” kinist, because I believe that the ties of kinship and ethnic roots are God-given. What with certain Christians condemning even the idea of nations as an evil, things are getting very strange. The Bible itself speaks repeatedly of nations and tribes. I suppose this would be news to some. Maybe the new translations of the Bible have substituted some other word or idea for ‘nations’ so as to confuse people.
However the Bible says that God sets the bounds of nations, meaning he creates a separation among the different and distinct nations. The mention of ‘nations’ is frequent enough that it can’t be missed. How these Bible ‘experts’ or Christian ‘leaders’ denouncing ‘ethnonationalism’ managed to be unaware of the words of Jesus, I don’t know. But they are, by condemning nationalism and ethnopatriotism, in effect, damning generations of our ancestors to hell, if it is a grave “sin” to be an ethnonationalist or patriot. All our generations of ancestors were in effect ‘ethnonationalists’ or ‘ethnopatriots’, though they may not have known those words. Loving one’s homeland has always been considered a virtue, up until this insane time, when everything is turned on its head. Loving one’s folk, one’s kinsmen, is even more important than devotion to our countr(ies).
It’s funny, how for certain peoples, loving their own folk is considered a good thing, a healthy thing, a desirable and admirable thing. But for people of European descent, it’s a ”sin.” Will it be a crime next?
We, all of us in the Western world in former Christendom desperately need to re-discover pietas. I encounter too many people who say that they ‘hate themselves’ for being White, and that they wish they were something other than White; they’ve been led to hate themselves — and yet this society officially preaches a ‘gospel’ of ”Self-Esteem” — what a mockery. Only certain people are constantly shamed and disparaged in the media and in schools and in the workplace. What’s wrong with this picture?
As to the Puritans Network, I plan to read their materials, though I can see that I am not exactly on the same page. I think their website is worth visiting and perusing if you are interested in Puritanism and/or Anglo-American roots. Really those of us who are English-descended should be on the same page, at least on the important issues. It’s a shame that our cultural Marxist orhtodoxy puts us at odds with one another in some ways, even within families.
Ironic, because on one side of my family most of my ancestors were English Puritans, and I have read and profited by Puritans such as Richard Baxter and William Gurnall. Gurnall wrote The Christian in Complete Armour, a book from which I’ve found inspiration.
