At Amid Night Suns I am always trying to create provocative, intelligent and empowering art, with something to say about the spiritual condition of the human race. I have spent a lot of time reading and researching the darkest aspects of organized religion, especially Christianity. I am not an enemy of religion or peoples most deeply held religious beliefs. However, I do find religious institutions themselves to be very dark places indeed. Most if not all established religious institutions have a history of corruption and depravity going back for centuries. I am not going to give you any particular example of this depravity; the information is available if you wish to seek it out. What I will say is that I'm familiar with the appalling history of the Catholic Church and the many genocides and depravities it has engaged in since its inception. This is not to tar all Catholics with the same brush, by any means. Not at all. I only want to point out the fact that Church and State have been two of the most powerful forces for human spiritual enslavement in history. I would never deny anyone their heartfelt faith. But I will never deny the truth either. And the truth is often horrifically unpleasant.
We can only begin changing the world by changing ourselves. Do you choose the Plenty or the Abyss? What is your Revelation? What do you choose to see?
