On Christianity: The Censored Section of the National Alliance Membership Handbook

william_pierce98by Dr. William L. Pierce (pictured)

The following was written by Dr. Pierce in 1992 and included in the original edition of the National Alliance Membership Handbook (pages 46-51). Unfortunately, this entire important policy guideline — one of the crucial elements that sets the National Alliance apart from other racial organizations — was removed altogether in the second edition that was published by Walker and Gliebe. It has been restored under the chairmanship of Will W. Williams.


2d.vii. Christianity
The National Alliance is not a religious organization, in the ordinary sense of the term. It does, however, have to concern itself with religious matters, because religions influence the behavior of people, society, and governments. The doctrines of various religious groups — Christians, Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, et al. — deal with the temporal as well as spiritual matters and therefore often conflict with National Alliance doctrine.

Christian doctrines are of much greater concern to the National Alliance than the doctrines of other large religious groups, because Christianity is the most influential religion in the United States, Europe, and the rest of the White world. Most members of the National Alliance come from families which are, or a generation ago were, at least nominally Christian, and very few come from families which practice or practiced, Islam, Buddhism, or other religions. Furthermore, the history of our race for the last thousand years has been inextricably bound up with Christianity. The National Alliance really cannot avoid taking positions regarding Christian beliefs and practices, despite the complications this causes our work.

Race Mixed Marriage
CHRISTIANITY ignores racial differences and promotes egalitarianism and racial mixing.

The immediate and inevitable fact which forces us to come to grips with Christianity is that the mainstream Christian churches are all, without exception, preaching a doctrine of White racial extinction. They preach racial egalitarianism and racial mixing. They preach non-resistance to the takeover of our society by non-Whites. It was the Christian churches, more than any other institution, which paralyzed the will of White South Africans to survive. It is the Christian establishment in the United States which is preeminent in sapping the will of White Americans to resist being submerged in the non-White tide sweeping across the land. Most Christian authorities collaborate openly with the Jews, despite the contempt and abuse they receive in return, and the rest at least follow Jewish policies on the all-important matter of race. The occasional anomaly — a Catholic bishop in Poland speaking out angrily against Jewish arrogance, a few Protestant groups in the United States expressing sympathy for oppressed Palestinians — does not invalidate the rule.

We are obliged, therefore, to oppose the Christian churches and to speak out against their doctrines. But we do not, as some groups have done, accuse the Christian leaders of being false Christians. We do not say, “We are the real Christians, because we stand for the values which the mainstream churches stood for a century ago, before they were subverted.” We do not reach for our Bibles and point to verses which seem to be in accord with the policies of the National Alliance and contrary to the present policies of the Christian churches. A diligent Bible scholar can find in the Judeo-Christian scriptures support for — or ammunition against — virtually any policy whatsoever.

Beyond the immediate conflict between us and the Christian churches on racial matters there is a long-standing and quite fundamental ideological problem with Christianity. It is not an Aryan religion; like Judaism and Islam it is Semitic in origin, and all its centuries of partial adaptation to Aryan ways have not changed its basic flavor. It was carried by a Jew, Saul of Tarsus (later known as Paul), from the Levant to the Greco-Roman world. Its doctrines that the meek shall inherit the earth and that the last shall be the first found fertile soil among the populous slave class in Rome. Centuries later, as Rome was succumbing to an internal rot in which Christianity played no small part, legions of Roman conscripts imposed the imported religion on the Celtic and Germanic tribes to the north.

Eventually Christianity became a unifying factor for Europe, and in the name of Jesus Europeans resisted the onslaught of Islamic Moors and Turks and expelled the “Christ-killing” Jews from one country after another. But the religion retained its alien mind-set, no matter how much some aspects of it were Europeanized. Its otherworldliness is fundamentally out of tune with the Aryan quest for knowledge and for progress; its universalism conflicts directly with Aryan striving for beauty and strength; its delineation of the roles of man and god offends the Aryan sense of honor and self-sufficiency.

Finally Christianity, like the other Semitic religions, is irredeemably primitive. Its deity is thoroughly anthropomorphic, and its “miracles” — raising the dead, walking on water, curing the lame and the blind with a word and a touch — are the crassest superstition.We may have fond memories of the time before the Second World War when pretty, little girls in white dresses attended all-White Sunday schools, and Christianity seemed a bulwark of family values and a foe to degeneracy and indiscipline. We may cherish the tales of medieval valor, when Christian knights fought for god and king — if we can overlook the Christian church’s bloodthirsty intolerance, which stifled science and philosophy for centuries and sent tens of thousands of Europeans to the stake for heresy.

We may even find Christian ethics congenial, if we follow the standard Christian practice of interpreting many of its precepts — such as the one about turning the other cheek — in such a way that they do not interfere with our task. But we should remember that nothing essential in Christian ethics is specifically Christian. Any successful society must have rules of social conduct. Lying and stealing were shunned in every Aryan society long before Christianity appeared. Our pagan ancestors did not need Christian missionaries to tell them how to behave or to explain honor and decency to them — quite the contrary!

Historians may argue the pros and cons of Christianity’s role in our race’s past: whether or not the unity it provided during a period of European consolidation outweighed the loss of good genes it caused in the Crusades and the bloody religious wars of the Middle Ages (and through the Church’s policy of priestly celibacy); whether the splendid Gothic cathedrals which rose in Europe during the four centuries and the magnificent religious music of the 18th century were essentially Christian or essentially Aryan in inspiration; whether Christianity’s stand against the evils of self-indulgence — against gluttony and drunkenness and greed — was worth its shackling of the human mind in superstition or not. One thing already is clear, however: Christianity is not a religion that we can wish on future generations of our race.

We need ethics; we need values and standards; we need a world view. And if one wants to call all of these things together a religion, then we need a religion. One might choose instead, however, to call them a philosophy of life. Whatever we call it, it must come from our own race soul; it must be an expression of the innate Aryan nature. And it must be conducive to our mission of racial progress. Christianity, as the word is commonly understood, meets neither of these criteria.

The fact is that, completely aside from the racial question, no person who wholeheartedly believes Christian doctrine can share our values and goals, because Christian doctrine holds that this world is of little importance, being only a proving ground for the spiritual world which one enters after death. Christian doctrine also holds that the condition of this world is not man’s responsibility, because an omnipotent and omniscient deity alone has that responsibility.

Although some Christians do believe Christian doctrine wholeheartedly, however, most do not. Most instinctively feel what we explicitly believe, even if they have repressed those feelings in an effort to be “good” Christians. Because of this many nominal Christians, even those affiliated with mainstream churches, can, under the right circumstances, be persuaded to work for the interests of their race. Other nominal Christians — especially those who stand apart from any of the mainstream churches — have interpreted Christian doctrine in such an idiosyncratic way that the contradictions between their beliefs and ours have been minimized.

For these reasons we want to avoid conflict with Christians to the extent that we can. We don’t want to give unnecessary offense, even when we speak out against the doctrines of these churches. We don’t want to ridicule their beliefs, which in some cases are sincerely held. Some of these people later will reject Christianity’s racial doctrines. Some will reject Christianity altogether. We want to help them in their quest for truth when we can, and we want to keep the door open to them.

Members who want to study the subject of Christianity and its relationship to our task in depth should read Which Way Western Man? by our late member William Simpson. The book’s initial chapters describe the spiritual odyssey of a man of exceptional spiritual sensitivity, who was far more intensely a Christian than nearly any Christian living today and who eventually understood the racially destructive nature of Christianity and rejected it.

A more concise study of the difference between the Christian world view and ours is given in Wulf Sörensen’s The Voice of Our Ancestors, which was reprinted in National Vanguard No.107.

Little wonder arch-Christian Ed Fields immediately jumped
onto the Walker/Gliebe bandwagon. I trust he has the good
graces to withdraw from whence he came.

Is it to be assumed that this disaffection of Christianity which has been condemned from Kierkegaard and Nietzsche among others to this day is also a repudiation of a Creator or beneficent reality which must be remote and holy and conceived by the same? And that it therefore must ignore the vindication of history. Jesus of Nazareth condemned Christianity and also warned of its usurpation and of his authority by the rich and powerful and their misuse of it. Of its estrangement and apostasy until ultimately it is revealed as the Anti-Christ. The words above, the censored section, condemn a religion or faith by virtue of its alien source and or can not represent their ideals, namely the glorification of their race. According to scripture Jesus of Nazareth was not… Read more »

Thank you for your comment, Heinnemann. Our Alliance has very little in common with Jesus of Nazareth. There are plenty of pro-White groups out there like the Council of Conservative Citizens that states in their mission statement: “We are a Christian organization, based on Christian principles.” The National Alliance, as established in the article above by its Founder, Dr. Pierce, has a Nature-based, reality-based, forward-looking ideology that is opposed to otherworldly Christian teachings. Dr. Pierce called it Cosmotheism. The article he cited at the end of that piece can be read here: Mr. Hampton, Dr. Ed Fields did join the National Alliance after Dr. Pierce died, along with a number of other Christian patriots, including Brian Wilson, the Identity Christian who is “legal liaison” for the NARRG group of… Read more »

Rather tantamount to getting a message from Benjamin Netanyahu
saying “well done,” I should think.

A most “timely message” regardless of whatever religious “Holiday” of our Folk is being celebrated:

9 April, 2015 1:22 pm

However, and that “timely message” aside: “The most important single fact concerning Christianity with which the Alliance must deal is that all the major Christian churches, Catholic and Protestant, liberal and fundamentalist, have openly aligned themselves with the enemies of the White race. The Catholics and the liberal Protestants are vigorously supporting racial mixing, while the fundamentalist Protestants are strong boosters of Zionism. These alignments will become increasingly important factors in our struggle in the years ahead, as the churches become more and more involved in social and political issues. The Jews have already announced their intention to mobilize fundamentalist Christians in their effort to maintain control of the U.S. government. The Alliance cannot remain silent in the face of such developments, for the sake of White unity or anything… Read more »

And from the study of the “Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire” by Gibbon:

“Looking at Roman history it became clear to me that whereas Rome had established a great civilization, had conquered the world, was completely supreme, that when Christianity hit it like a plague, it began to crumble
and fall apart. And after studying the underlying suicidal ideas that Christianity had perpetrated upon the Romans,
I could easily understand why the Romans no longer cared
to defend their Empire, nor to meet their earthly responsibilities.
It became clear to me why the whole great White Empire disintegrated under the influence of this new Jewish

One can find a few credible authors who make comparisons between that era of the Roman empire and the Jew-dominated and -corrupted US-led “Western Civilization” of this era and discern a similar fate about to befall. Most may not be conscious of this, but many certainly can feel it occurring as our lives advance. For those who do have this consciousness, there is a path to life for our people through Cosmotheism and the program of the National Alliance. And for the rest? Their fortunes are much less certain, and their genes will likely be lost in various ways- death and miscegenation to name a few.

Sometimes I can be a sucker for a great sounding hymn. For example, many old military hymns despite the fact that I don’t think much of the ever changing and convoluted teeter totter of war propaganda throughout the history of our race. One of the greatest (sounding) hymns in history is ‘Amazing Grace’. However, needless to say, those utterly dreadful lyrics of that hymn is not something that I can negotiate with in any way. Beyond that, I actually enjoy any parlay with a Christian regarding their faith. There are so many demerits within it that I can shed light on. I have no idea as to why Jews and Liberals attack Christianity when overall it serves their goals so well. Poor strategy on their part.

“I have no idea as to why Jews and Liberals attack Christianity when overall it serves their goals so well.” Perhaps they want a bigger market share for their particular brand of superstition. Monotheisms are exclusive and intolerant: “Thou shalt have no other gods before me . . . for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God” (Exodus 20:3-5).

Jews and liberals have no quarrel with the so-called “mainline” Christian churches that used to represent the historic Christian faith, but now are little more than liberalism in Christian clothing. Jews hate evangelical/fundamentalist Christianity because it teaches that everyone must be a Christian or else face eternal damnation; therefore, Jews must convert to Christianity in order to be saved. Liberals hate historic Christianity because it rejects feminism and condemns homosexuality.

History proves this wrong. i was a “rabid mondern fundamentalist”. The jews love anything that sows discord among brethren which fundamentalism teaches. It also teaches hating family which is contrary to nature. If we learn from nature(physical creation), nature’s “god” is cruel,has no peace,weak,imperfect,no balance; a clear manifesting of some entity trying to manufacture someone it has seen but cannot produce. Christ said His Father was Spirit and All Truth(therefore Christ’s main primary existence must be spiritual in nature. i admire the truth the NA has shown, that there will always be consequence to something trying to take something else over i.e. race. Even if the NA is wrong on some things, it gives hope to some who maybe on verge of self harm. A clear purpose and vision is… Read more »

It’s a historical grudge. Even though Paul of Tarsus and his gang of jew supremacists invented Christianity as an insidious scheme to weaken European civilization they eventually lost control of it to control freak Europeans who (probably unwittingly) boomeranged it back as a weapon against the jews by blaming them for the supposed execution of the “Son of God”. So, while much of the original scheme paid huge dividends by tricking Christians into wasting their time and efforts trying to get into “heaven” (which gave the power-mad jews a decisive advantage in most fields of endeavor) and not fighting as hard as they otherwise would have against the jews’ other schemes by always trying to be fair and just so as not to jeopardize their “heavenly” aspirations, the label as… Read more »

It has been more than seven years since these words of the Founder of the National Alliance were put here on National Vanguard, and 30 years since he wrote them. It is a good time for everyone to read again and absorb them without the mostly distracting commentary below William Pierce’s thoughts on why Christianity is an ideology opposed to that of our Alliance. He doesn’t mention Cosmotheism, the religion he founded for our people, but read between the lines. Christianity is not a religion that we can wish on future generations of our race.We need ethics; we need values and standards; we need a world view. And if one wants to call all of these things together a religion, then we need a religion. One might choose instead, however,… Read more »

Of course and as always, I continue in my role

It took some doing, Walt, but our Alliance has put put the disastrous Gliebe/Walker era behind us. You should, too.

I’m not far behind you, having turned 75 last week. I certainly won’t be Chairman for another eight years, that would put me well past my “use by” date — think Sleepy Joe Biden — but I’ll be an active member here in our Cosmotheist Community until my dying breath.

Don’t worry, NA is enjoying a slow but steady influx of young men and women joining these days who will take our places before we age out.

I’m so proud that you have remembered NA in your will. You are one of the few who have done so to date. Even so, I hope you live well into your 80s.
