Shortly past the middle of Mangasarian's "The Truth about Jesus" he deals with paganism and the Christian religion. Here is the into to that section:
CHRISTIANITY AND PAGANISM
Christianity as an Asiatic cult is not suitable to European races. To prove this, let us make a careful comparison between Paganism and Christianity. There are many foolish things, and many excellent things, in both the Pagan and the Christian religions. We are not concerned with particular beliefs and rites; it is Paganism as a philosophy of life, and Christianity as a philosophy of life, that we desire to investigate. And at the threshold of our investigation we must bear in mind that Paganism was born and grew into maturity in Europe, while Asia was the cradle of Christianity. It would be superfluous to undertake to prove that in politics, in government, in literature, in art, in science, in the general culture of the people, Europe was always in advance of Asia. Do we know of any good reason, when it comes to religion, why Asia should be incomparably superior to anything Europe has produced in that line? Unless we believe in miracles, the natural inference would be that a people who were better educated in every way than the Ascetics should have also possessed the better religion. I admit that this is only inferential, or a-priori reasoning, and that it still remains to be shown by the recital of facts, that Europe not only ought to have produced a better religion than Asia, but that she did.
I think that Mangasarian was speaking of Asia in the sense of western Asia meaning the eastern Mediterranean region and Europe as the northern Mediterranean region i.e, Greece and Italy (Rome). So I equated his discussion of Asian religion to include not only Christianity but also the other two Abrahamic faiths. If this is fair, then the comparison is one of Greek and Roman "mythology" to the "Asian" Abrahamic faiths.
His point is that the Asian faiths is one that is based on the acceptance of the worthlessness of the individual and slave mentality of the Asians compared to the independence and valuation of the individual in paganism.
Interesting stuff. Comments and discussion welcome. Here is the link to the entirety of the article:
