Ishtar Enlightening the World with her torch uplifted
Now we see more instances of her return in human society as her doctrines take a subtle hold within both Protestant and Catholic churches in the USA.
developments further fuel the cosmic rebellion against the
Creator-Ruler of the Universe.
In that guise she can be found as the Statue of Liberty
guarding the New York City harbor as well as atop the US Capitol
Building in Washington D.C. where America's lawmakers meet to write
new laws. She also can be found on the grounds or atop the domes of
many statehouses around the USA. She is also found on coinage of
We understand that for 2003 the group has chosen a more mainstream location in San Francisco to operate its temple.
We have a hunch that at some point, Ishtarism will begin to openly operate in big cities.
When this occurs it will feature a form of religious prostitution in which sexual activities will occur with money changing hands directly to the “temple” itself with the “priestesses” then being paid a salary perhaps, just like ministers in a Christian church would be paid a salary? We’re guessing here but we think such an approach would be a logical extension to skirt the current local prostitution laws around the country. Such a development would have to skirt local, state and any federal laws regarding prostitution because of the U.S. Constitution’s prohibition against religious worship.
The idea of “holy
prostitution” activities would be argued by attorneys that such
rituals are a religious rite dating back to the beginning of
recorded history and therefore a valid religion and thus local
ordinances and laws could not apply to such activities because such
activities are indeed religious in nature and thereby protected by
the Constitutional mandate that prohibits the government and the
courts from interfering with religion. But now, that is not all we
suspect will develop with Ishtarism.
More … Complaints by Ishtar / Isis priestess in L.A. about Christian history of persecuting Ishtar worshippers. We mention this only for the reader to note that:
Mainline Protestant Denominations & New Age-isms
We began to see such beginning forays as early as the late 1970s and more so in the late 1980’s and early 1990s and slowly gaining ground ever since. Here is an example of an Episcopalian woman turning to the goddess worship of Ishtar.
Check out this link to the webpage of Elizabeth Cunningham writing for the New Seminary about “Sacred Prostitution.”
One artistic rendition of Ishtar, agricultural fertility goddess,
among other things.
So there you have it, a devotee of Ishtar if not a priestess of
Ishtar notes that Ishtar worship seems to be “re-emerging.”
The origin of money was developed in order to support the worship of Ishtar by providing a way for assets to be garnered to cover the expenses of maintaining the temple and its priestesses and priests.
The term seems to have blossomed under the
guidance of Carol Arnott (Toronto) and Brenda Kilpatrick
A dilemma supposedly developed with these women at the beginning of their “ministry” involving the need for a transferable anointing or so it was advised by male counterparts. It was felt that for them to have such a special ministry in the movement, such obligation required that the two women needed to take a transferable anointing back to their own churches and "cross-pollinate."
The idea of “cross-pollinating” would allegedly bring unity to the churches and end denominationalism. In their way of thinking, denominationalism is evil. The idea itself carries sexual overtones very similar to instances by Toronto blessing churches in Great Britain where women have had their genitals “anointed” with oil by ministers.
There have even been allegations of at least one minister engaging in sexual intercourse with women to give them an “internal anointing.” There have been reports of “holy orgasms,” nudity and other allegations of lewd, sexual misconduct within what is called “Third Wave” churches where women are urged to “cross-pollinate” for the sake of revival, renewal and the gospel.
For confirmation on this concept of “cross-pollination” visit the link given below:
In these movements we have read of sexual promiscuity being part of
a worship service or even worse, the inclusion of sexual relations
as part of an anointing process or processes along with the "laying
on of hands" in order to gain special spiritual blessings or
spiritual "power" or healing or forgiveness of sins.
Combine this with a future government “admission” that
there are UFOs and aliens and that the aliens gave us our religions
to help civilize our species. In other words, Jesus, the Christ is
no different than Ishtar of Babylon or Baal or Allah, or
Buddha and any other pagan deity you care to think of. Such a
revelation by the government with key government scientists
providing detailed data-points will (I hypothesize) tend to
destabilize much of the population’s views regarding established
Among many mainline liberal, Protestant denominations the trend is
already moving towards the concepts of Ishtarism. It wouldn’t take
much to push those denominations over the edge and into outright
Some would refer to this notion as “swinging” while most would regard it as just plain old adultery and fornication. I believe this group will be growing in numbers sooner rather than later and will be ripe for conversion to Ishtaristic–Christianity in which someday there will be sexual acts performed in a church at an altar in front of the Preacher’s podium. Don’t be surprised if it isn’t performed much like the ritual of communion or a baptism.
All in all, I suspect
these developments will make the Church of Corinth look like
extremely mature believers. Remember they also had their share of
sexual problems within their membership, including cases of incest
and homosexuality just to name a couple of issues there.
Not only is their website rather offensive but it links to another related site that promotes Church nudity and especially church nudity of women parishioners.
A link to that sight would be a link to a pornographic website and we just can’t in good conscience post such a site’s URL. We can only state that we were shocked at such developments and yet we shouldn’t have been. We’ve been expecting it, but I figured we’d first hear about it in the media and not stumble onto it ourselves by a forum link posting.

specifically asks for it.
No, we don’t condone RCC doctrines that are in error. Instead, we merely disagree that much of the paganistic similarities within the RCC are exactly that, similarities for the most part although there may be some remote linkage to late Roman Empire paganism, nonetheless, we reject the claims made by Alexander Hislop who falsely identified much of the RCC symbolism with Babylonian paganism, especially Ishtarism.
In fact, he referred to
Ishtar as “Semiramis” for which we now know was total error. There
never was such a divine goddess known as “Semiramis.” It is not the
purpose of this article to investigate the false claims of Hislop so
we shall drop the subject, but we categorically maintain that Ishtar
worship and doctrines are nothing like those of the RCC once you
fully investigate the issue of Ishtar and her mystery doctrines.
This supposedly began in the middle of the 19th
Century. In some respects this revelation does bear some resemblance
to Ishtar worship but it is not universal and it is not public like
that of Ishtar worship. Indeed, the RCC does not have a woman-figure
carrying the title of “MOTHER OF HARLOTS” as does Ishtar herself
proudly carry that title. So in this regard, the RCC issue of
“Beautiful Creature” priesthood program just is not the same thing
as Ishtar worship.
Here’s some choice quotes from the following linked page:
In a recent article titled, "Shouldn't We Sing to Her?" Sister Mary Irving, SSND, quoted Collins to support her plea that God be addressed as female in order to honor,
We suspect that within the next ten years or sooner, we should see Ishtarism flower out into public view and within the next 20 years, who knows, it could become the dominant religion even in America.
We would expect that once the rapture occurs, or
Christianity becomes outlawed by the NOW, Ishtarism will quickly
gain ground as a new religion of choice.
