Easter separates the boys from the men. It does so in a way reminiscent of how Gideon was advised by God to hand-pick his army of select three hundred:

So he brought down the people unto the water: and the Lord said unto Gideon, Every one that lappeth of the water with his tongue, as a dog lappeth, him shalt thou set by himself; likewise every one that boweth down upon his knees to drink.

Judges 7:5

Meaning, God tells Gideon to reject the sissies who kneel fancifully to drink like little princesses and instead select only the total Chads who lap the water into their mouths like dogs without making a fuss about it.

Liking Easter, especially for a non-Christian, is also a similar test. It is the real deal – there is no “It’s beginning to look like Easter” kind of sweet music to mask the meaning of the holiday with schmaltz. There is no Santa to obscure the presence of Jesus. Easter directly addresses the most profound mystery of Christianity – the Resurrection.

And so, much more than “Winter Wishes!” or “Season’s Greetings!” a “Happy Easter” symbolizes one’s embrace of the West – its legacy, its music, its traditional sentiments – and a recognition of the dominant faith that undergirds it.

Easter is up there, perhaps with Columbus Day, as a true challenge to the blasphemous cult of Wokery and ancestral dispossession that is imposed on us through every unwholesome institution.

Then and now

It’s also a great opportunity to refamiliarize with some of Bach’s greatest masterpieces, such as the Easter Oratorio, Rejoice, Ye Hearts!, and of course the two passions.

So go drink water like a man and have a happy Easter!
