The name Friday comes from the Old English Frīġedæġ, meaning the "day of Frige", a result of an old convention associating the Old English goddess Frigg with the Roman goddess Venus, with whom the day is associated in many different cultures. [Wikipedia article on Friday]Yep - Friday is named for a PAGAN GODDESS! Saturday:
The Romans named Saturday Sāturni diēs ("Saturn's Day") no later than the 2nd century for the planet Saturn, which controlled the first hour of that day... [Wikipedia article, Saturday]Oops - another PAGAN reference in our calendar! Sunday. Well, this one is pretty straight-forward - no need for Wikipedia: SUNday - derived from Hellenistic astrology... not just a PAGAN reference, but a PAGAN reference implicating the evil, occult science of ASTROLOGY... and this on OUR LORD'S DAY! - talk about sacrilegious! Monday. Oh, no! Another one! - The MOON'S Day. Tuesday:
The name Tuesday derives from the Old English "Tiwesdæg" and literally means "Tiw's Day". Tiw is the Old English form of the Proto-Germanic god *Tîwaz, or Týr in Norse, a god of war and law. [Wikipedia, Tuesday]... another one??? More PAGAN sources! Wednesday... hey, maybe we'll get lucky and find a good Biblical source!
The name is derived from Old English Wōdnesdæg and Middle English Wednesdei, "day of Woden", ultimately a calque of dies Mercurii "day of Mercury". [Wikipedia, Wednesday]Not just one, but TWO PAGAN sources - Woden & Mercury! One more chance. Thursday:
The name is derived from Old English Þūnresdæg and Middle English Thuresday meaning "Thor's Day". Thunor, Donar (German, Donnerstag) and Thor are derived from the name of the Germanic god of thunder. [Wikipedia, Thursday]Sigh. So why has the GOP not latched onto this issue? Our calendar - the days of the week we teach our CHILDREN - these are PAGAN! Even THE LORD'S DAY is named for a PAGAN god! The days of the week are lies straight from the pit of hell. We are unwittingly unleashing the POWERS OF EVIL on our civilization by retaining these PAGAN constructs!
