Now it will be the Jews who will set the tone... to make money any way one can and have women will be the ideal... the adventurer of the future will be the sexual deviate. This will be the basis of the art of the future.

Is there anything more Christian than a fly? Flies are constant, persistent, buzzing. Flies get into wounds, pus, and garbage, like true Christians. Some will say that bishops and Popes prefer money, opulence, magnificence; but this only proves that flies are much more Christian than bishops and Popes. Flies increase in direct proportion to sunlight, society, stables, horse-stalls, and in inverse proportion to cleanliness, running water and reasonable people. It's the same with priests.
