We Must Dissent
Anonymous invites Christians to join the Million Mask March #EtherSec
Anonymous – #EtherSec
Don’t Just Expect us, Join Us!
Greetings Christians of the world.
We are Anonymous.
And I am Reverend Hax.
We come to you in peace, seeking solidarity. We ask that you forget what you may have heard about us and consider our origins.
It may surprise you to know that Anonymous has a connection to a centuries old religious movement. Guy Fawkes, whose mask we wear, was a revolutionary seeking freedom from a government that had outlawed his faith. Today we wear his face as the symbol of our peaceful movement to root out corruption…and we ask you to join us.
The government of the United States, and the corporate masters they serve have hijacked our once noble faith. Year after year, politician after politician, they claim to be leaders of a so-called “Christian nation”, while they serve only the wealthy, deprive the poor of their basic needs, and worship only money and power. All the while, the so-called “leaders” of our faith line their pockets and turn their back on the teachings of Jesus while claiming to do his work.
As if this were not bad enough, we now know of an even more insidious threat from the NSA and Barack Obama. Thanks to the sacrifice of Edward Snowden, we know that the NSA spies on your every online correspondence and phone call. This means you cannot call, text, or email any pastor for confidential advice, confession or council, because the NSA is always listening.
Brothers and Sisters we cannot abide this! We ask you to stand beside us on November 5th as Anonymous and many others show the governments of the world that their corruption will not stand.
We know that many of you will be criticized or outcast for identifying with Anonymous or our cause. We know that many of our so-called “leaders” would have us silenced.
We also know that the path of our faith was never intended to be easy. Jesus tells us
“Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother.” ” And whoever does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me.”
Therefore, Brothers and Sisters, we ask you to join us:. To stand with the people and speak out against the corruption and oppression that has held our faith in bondage.
In solidarity, we offer you this gift, The mask of Guy Fawkes, a symbol of religious freedom. This mask is now yours to wear, if you choose.
If your faith community rejects you, we will not.
There is a place where Christian faith and the Anonymous collective meet, we will be waiting there for you.
We are “as wise as serpents and innocent as doves.”
We are Anonymous
We are Legion
We may forgive,
But we shall never forget.
On November 5th, Expect us!
