Sodomy is prayer
The penis is the most potent symbol of the divine masculine principle
With each ejaculation it has the potential to create life or deliver disease that can lead to death
The sacred power of sexuality was recognised by ancient religions the world over
India has not entirely lost its heritage here – the Shiva lingam is worshipped still in temples
In India there used to be temples honouring sexuality full of fantastic erotic art which the Christians and Muslims destroyed.
As there had been in the Middle East during the nearly 10 millennia of the Mesopotamian empires
And which still existed amongst the tribes of Israel
Kings Chapter 14 mentions the phallic poles erected as worship of the earth mother Asherah
And male shrine prostitutes, the Qedesha, which means The Holy or Consecrated Ones
But which was translated in the King James Bible simply as sodomites.
Sodomy is about pleasure
Pleasure is the principle of the divine feminine
Receptive receiving the potency of the masculine
It does not matter what gender our body might appear
We are all a mix of feminine, masculine and more
Sodomy opens the backgates to Heaven
Which as Jesus said is found inside
Those who receive the fist know this best
Throughout ancient Europe the spiritual work was performed by women, feminine men and transgendered people.
The galli were wandering priest/esses of the Goddess Cybele in the time of the Roman Empire
Ergi was the word for the femininsed shamans of Scandinavia
There were male witches burned across Europe during the Witch Hunts as well as female
Christianity has its own queer history. Saint Sebastian. Serge and Bacchus. Saint Anselm. Aelred of Rievaulx, Michelangelo.
But mostly Christianity went about stamping out any traces of the link between male sexual love and the sacred, destroying movements such as the Cathars that accepted it, and wiping out pagan worship, in which it had always featured. Ancient mythologies all included deities who changed gender, who had same-sex love affairs, who were worshipped in single gender sex cults.
When the Christians went to the Americas they were shocked to find cross dressing gender benders in same-sex relationships performing roles as sacred functionaries in the tribes, and sodomy totally accepted as normal, as it was in Africa and the Far East until the Europeans spread their poison. In China and Japan homosex was even seen as a privilege enjoyed by the monastic classes. In Africa there are records of powerful gay male wizards, eg the Quimbanda in Angola
Islam has its own queer history. Until very recent times Sufi love poetry through centuries reflected the joy of love and intimacy between males. Rumi, Hafiz are great medieval queer mystics who realised divinity through knowing love with another man
Plato testified to this too.
“Plato’s theory of love is fleshed out in the Phaedrus and the Symposium. Like many Greeks of his era and social position, Plato is most interested in the same-sex desire that can exist between an older and a younger man, but there is no reason to suppose that his theory of love does not also apply to other kinds of erotic relationship. That having been said, Plato distinguishes the kind of love that can give rise to philia from a baser kind of love that is enjoyed by those who are more given to the body than to the soul. Rather than underpin the search for truth, this baser kind of love is almost designed to impede it.
“… if erotic love can be transformed into the best kind of friendship, then it can open up a blissful life of shared understanding in which desire, friendship, and philosophy are in perfect resonance with one another.”
In some parts of the world there are more men exploring their sexual desires for other men more freely, more frequently than ever before
In others men like us live in fear as do other queers
AIDS taught us that unbridled sexuality is dangerous
Drug addiction and dark abusive sexual scenarios are teaching the same thing now to many men
But sexuality is divine, is holy
It can transform us, uplift us or destroy us
We play with fire when we connect sexually with others
Even more so when we take chemicals too
We shift our consciousness through an act of will
Which is the definition of magic
We are witch souls, shamans, playing our games as we always did
But now there are so many of us
And we have so little idea what we are doing.
Fire is the element that lifts us to Spirit
That sets our souls alight
When we play we are praying
Pumping energy into the world
But if our thoughts are dark
Our prayers come out twisted
We are called Gay
Because we are souls ready for Freedom and Joy
But without an anchor in spirit
Without the spirit of prayer
A man can get lost.
If we look for, recognise and give love to god in each other when we meet
Our prayerful play will open heaven’s gates
It will be better than Tina, than Mephedrone, than G
It will be the triumphant return of Sodomy
To the Holy Act it was designed to be.
When Bodies unite and Souls unite
We give birth to Light.
Once upon a time, the whole world over, the phallus was revered as a sacred:
