Happy Easter, or Ishtar: Baby Killing, Blood Drinking, and Sex
Ishtar (Semiramis) is the Assyrian and Babylonian goddess of fertility and sex. her symbols are eggs (fertility) and rabbits (sex).
Semiramis created a mystery religion, in which she appointed herself goddess.
Semiramis, wife of Nimrod, mother of Tammuz. When Nimrod died she told her followers that he ascended to become the sun god Baal/Ra and that through his rays of light she conceived her husband Nimrod who reincarnated as her son Tammuz; Which she later married. She also told her followers that she was immaculately conceived.
She taught that the moon was a goddess that went through a 28 day cycle and ovulated when full and that she had come down from the moon in a giant moon egg that fell into the Euphrates River at sunrise at the time of the first full moon after the spring equinox, on a Sunday. Semiramis became known as "Ishtar" which is pronounced "Easter" referred to as Ashtoreth in scripture, and her moon egg became known as "Ishtar's" egg."
The original pagan festival of "Easter" was a sex orgy that celebrated the return of life via the fertility of Ishtar's conception of Tammuz. Worshipers participated by baking cakes, drinking, having sex orgies, and engaging in prostitution in the Temple of Ishtar.
Women were required to celebrate the conception of Tammuz by lying down in the temple and having sex with whoever entered. The man was required to leave her money.
The priest of Easter would sacrifice infants (human babies) and take the eggs of Easter/Ishtar, as symbols of fertility, and dye them in the blood of the sacrificed infants, then the worshipers would drink the blood. The Easter eggs would hatch on December 25th (nine months later), the same day her son Tammuz the reincarnate sun-god would be born.
This is where the practice of coloring "Easter eggs" came from. Many babies would be born around Dec 25 from the sex orgies that began on the feast of Ishtar in the Spring and many of these babies would be sacrificed the following Easter/Ishtar feast.
It was also common for pagans to bake cakes to offer to her (the Queen of heaven) on the Friday before the Easter festival. This is where we gained the custom of 'hot cross buns', with the “cross” symbol indicating the female (the Babylonian symbol for the “female” was, and is, a circle with a crux/cross beneath). The cross also indicated the Equinox, when the Earth’s orbit “crossed” the celestial equator.
All this in Christianity/Catholicism to make the transition from Pagan religions to Christian religion easier; But in reality it has nothing to do with Yaheshua/Yahweh/Yah'Weh/Jesus, ect.
