@Regrann from @victims_of_miseducation - A lot of women are forcing men into sin this day and into a pagan practice. Unknowingly of course... How? We all know if the man u with Right now does not acknowledge this day or u or cater to u around this time period it's not in his favor, this is why we just do it a lot of times. Guys don't care about this day. Also, schools are making kids participate in one of the most known practices of this day which I will address in the next post which is Valentine's Day cards.
Like Christmas, Easter, Halloween, New Year’s and other holidays of this world, St. Valentine’s Day is another attempt to “whitewash” perverted customs and observances of pagan gods and idols by “Christianizing” them.
As innocent and harmless as St. Valentine’s Day may appear, its traditions and #customs #originate #from two of the most sexually #perverted #pagan #festivals of ancient history: #Lupercalia and the feast day of Juno Februata.
Celebrated on February 15,
#Lupercalia (known as the “festival of sexual license”) was held by the ancient Romans in honor of #Lupercus, #god #of #fertility and husbandry, protector of herds and crops, and a mighty hunter—especially of wolves. The Romans believed that Lupercus would protect Rome from roving bands of wolves, which devoured livestock and people.
The Luperci believed that the floggings purified women and guaranteed their fertility and ease of childbirth. #February #derives #from #februa or “means of purification.” After Constantine had made the Roman church’s brand of Christianity the official religion of the Roman Empire (A.D. 325), church leaders wanted to do away with the pagan festivals of the people. Lupercalia was high on their list. But the Roman citizens thought otherwise.
It was not until A.D. 496 that the church at Rome was able to do anything about Lupercalia. Powerless to get rid of it, #Pope #Gelasius instead #changed it #from #February #15 #to the #14th and #called it #St. #Valentine’s #Day. It was named after one of that church’s saints, who, in A.D. 270, was executed by the emperor for his beliefs.
