[Odin/Wotan God Of The Germans]
Odinism provides an alternative for Europeans who do not wish to be Christian or are looking for something more natively European.
"All in all, 2,720 Christian leaders and priests were imprisoned at Dachau from Germany and occupied territories..... Many White Nationalists believe that modern cucked Christianity and the Church openly promote non-White immigration into Europe (and White Genocide) because "This is what Christians do". This is why the Nazis had opposed the universalism of Christianity."

In the following article I will explain what Odinism is. First I do not wish to convert anyone. I hold that all religions are man-made and I am not planning on following ANY of them - including Odinism. I am not becoming an Odinist in the sense of literally believing in the reality of the Norse Gods. For me they are simply metaphors. However, Odinism does give alternative cultural and moral direction to those who do not wish to be Christian or are looking for something more natively European.
WHAT IS ODINISM ?
Odinism is a pre-Christian, pagan, polytheistic German religion involving the worship of Norse gods, especially Odin (aka Wotan), the chief god. Odinism was practiced by ancient Germanic people that lived in both Viking Scandinavia and ancient Germania and share the same blood . Odinism's influence was felt in other parts of Europe, including Ireland, Scotland and England following Germanic (aka Viking) invasions. Modern descendants of the ancient Germanics include peoples such as the modern-day Germans, Swedes, Norwegians, Danes, Dutch, Flemish, Icelanders and Austrians.
The oral traditions of Odinism are recorded in a set of books called the Eddas. This religion regards nature as the true manifestation of the divine and believes that man is inherently good. Since 1973, Odinism has experienced a revival, with Scandinavian countries having officially recognized it as a legitimate religion. Groups of Odinists are also found throughout the world practiced by White people. Today the religion is practiced by a small percentage of people although its ranks are growing rapidly.
ETHNIC RELIGION THAT IS NATIVELY WHITE AND ITS VALUES
Odinism (Asatru) is a native Aryan religion that is racially based (a racial religion). It is essentially for people of European (White) heritage - specifically the northern half of Europe (Europe North of the Alps). Unlike Christianity, Islam, Judaism etc, Odinism does NOT seek non-White converts since it is an expression of the European spirit. However, Odinists respect the rights of all races and peoples to their own homelands, cultures and religions and do not wish to be supreme over any race or religion and are free of racial hatred.
Unlike the three Abrhamic religions, Odinism doesn't require one to fear and be slave to a "God" and the "Holy Powers" - It simply requires one to have close friendship with the Gods who represent our moral and spiritual ideals. Odinism does not require one to follow the Gods out of fear but out of love. Odinists love the supreme God and holy powers in the sense that they love and worship perfection and seek spiritual ideals and attributes as expressed in the "Gods" such as Love, Beauty, Justice, Self-Sacrifice, Honor, Courage, Fearlessness and Creativity etc. Each of the Norse "gods" represent a spiritual ideal that must be mastered.
ROSENBERG & THE NAZIS
Christianity suffered some persecution in Nazi Germany despite Nazi officials pretending outwardly to be Christian. The Nazis had regarded Christianity to be a Semitic religion poisoning the Aryan race with universalism. The Nazis claimed jurisdiction over all collective and social activity. Clergy were frequently arrested and sent to concentration camps. Catholic schools, press, trade unions, political parties and youth leagues were eradicated. An estimated one third of German priests faced some form of reprisal in Nazi Germany and 400 German priests were sent to the dedicated Priest Barracks in the Dachau camp. All in all, 2,720 Christian leaders and priests were imprisoned at Dachau from Germany and occupied territories..
Anton Gill in his book An Honourable Defeat wrote : "It quickly became clear that [Hitler] intended to imprison the Catholics, as it were, in their own churches. They could celebrate mass and retain their rituals as much as they liked, but they could have nothing at all to do with German society otherwise. Catholic schools and newspapers were closed, and a propaganda campaign against the Catholics was launched."
Prior and during the Nazi rise to power, Christian leaders made a number of attacks on Nazi ideology. The main Christian opposition to Nazism had come from the Catholic Church. German bishops energetically denounced its "false doctrines". They warned Christians against joining the membership of the Nazi Party, while the Catholic press criticized the Nazi movement. In his book On the Road to the Wolf's Lair, Theodor S Hamerow wrote about the underlying Nazi plan to return the German people to Nordic Paganism (Odinism):
"The Catholic Church ... had generally viewed the Nazi Party with fear and suspicion. It had felt threatened by a radical ultranationalist ideology that regarded the papacy as a sinister, alien institution, that opposed denominational separatism in education and culture, and that at times appeared to promote a return to Nordic paganism. The establishment of the Third Reich seemed to portend the coming of a bitter conflict between church and state"
Dr. Alfred Rosenberg, probably the greatest philosopher of the Nazi party wrote the following in "The Myth of the Twentieth Century":
- "Odin as the eternal mirrored image of the primal spiritual powers of Nordic man lives today just as he did over 5,000 years ago..."
- "As long as a people lives, its gods are immortal,.."
- "To awaken the racial soul to life means to recognize its highest value, and, under its dominance, to allot to other values their organic position in the State, in art, and in religion"
In regards to racial Nationalism Rosenberg sates : "Germany for the Germans, China for the Chinese, that becomes the world-political view from the racial conception of the state."
Outwardly Hitler pretended to be a Christin but secretly he remarked the following in his "Table Talk" made it very clear what his views were :
- "The only way of getting rid of Christianity is to allow it to die little by little".
- "In the long run, National Socialism and religion will no longer be able to exist together" (p 61).
- "As far as we are concerned, we've succeeded in chasing the Jews from our midst and excluding Christianity from our political life" (p 394).
- "There is something very unhealthy about Christianity" (p 418).
- "When all is said, we have no reason to wish that the Italians and Spaniards should free themselves from the drug of Christianity. Let's be the only people who are immunized against the disease" (p 145).
CHRISTIANITY CUCKED ?

As shown National Socialist leadership had pretended outwardly to be Christian - since Christianity was the official religion of Germany - but in fact intended to get rid of it since they saw the potential danger in it to the White race. Many voices within the White Nationalist movement agree that modern cucked Christianity and the Church openly promote non-White immigration into Europe (and White Genocide) because "This is what Christians do". This is why the Nazis had opposed the universalism of Christianity. Personally I tend to agree that Odinism - a ethnic religion - is a better alternative than modern cucked and subverted Christianity that puts Whites in danger. But I follow neither of them. Yet, I believe everybody has a right to follow what religion they choose and I do respect Christianity even though Odinism had existed thousands of years before Christianity ever existed. As for myself, Being German by blood I respect these ancient Germanic traditions.
