A number of studies have consistently found Christians to be more suggestible than normal, for example religious people have been found to respond better to medical placebos given for pain relief. Another consistent finding in America is that religious people tend to be more submissive, accepting of authority, dependent on group approval, and have a higher than average incidence of hysterical personalities [The Social Psychology of Religion pp 97-99].
Submissive, accepting of authority, dependent on group approval, hysterical, not exactly masculine traits I think you'll agree. More sort of, oh, I don't know, feminine? Yes, that's the right word, feminine. Those are feminine traits. Religious people and Christians are on the whole feminine. Not masculine as the Christians of the manosphere would contest but feminine.
Not that it'll make the slightest bit of difference to the pseudo-macho Christians in the manosphere. They'll keep bleating on about how men should be Christians, 'cause it's manly to be a Christian.
To be a Christian in the West (be it a Medieval Catholic Europe or modern day Protestant America) often involves the following activities:
- Sitting down in rows of pews facing the priest.
- Listening dutifully to the pastor/priest.
- Agreeing with most-all of what he says without question.
- Being exceptionally amiable to everyone there.
- Not creating anything new or thinking original thoughts.
- On the whole acting like a little girl in school listening dutifully to her teacher.
What part of that is masculine? What part of that Christian lifestyle allows a man to exert his own masculinity? None. He's told what to think, he's told what's right and wrong, he's told who the good guys and bad guys are, his entire life is dictated by men who subserviently follow what some other guy supposedly said. How is that masculine? On the whole, in my opinion, it isn't. Christianity is not masculine. Christianity a belief system, and like other belief systems it's followers are a herd. Not individuals but a herd. Hence why priests call their followers 'my flock', as in 'a flock of sheep'. It's hard to consider for a man to consider himself masculine when the local priest is calling him a sheep every Sunday.
Christianity is a feminine belief system and not a masculine one ergo it is one that men should seek to avoid. Instead of following the beliefs of others like a creature of the herd men should seek to determine truth for themselves, express their own viewpoints, their own Will, and their own creative energy. That's what men should be doing every Sunday, rather than listening to a man like a little girl in primary school. Creation beats imitation every time.
