Sexually Perverted Pagan Festivals
Thought of as the world’s “holiday of love"
Based on 2 sexually perverted mushrik (pagan) celebrations.
Is this day really about "love"?
Allah describes Himself in Quran as "Al Wadud" (The
Loving), in Surah Al Buruj.
But does this grant Muslims permission to celebrate a day supposedly
associated with "love"?
Day is usually associated with "lovers" and celebrates the open
exchange of many types of affection between sexes, mostly unmarried

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”
As innocent and harmless as St. Valentine’s Day may
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.
by Vestal Virgins, the Luperci (male priests) conducted purification
rites by sacrificing goats and a dog in the Lupercal cave on Palatine
Hill, where the Romans believed the twins Romulus and Remus had been
sheltered and nursed by a she-wolf before they eventually founded Rome.
Clothed in loincloths made from sacrificed goats and smeared in their
blood, the Luperci would run about Rome, striking women with februa,
thongs made from skins of the sacrificed goats. The Luperci believed
that the floggings purified women and guaranteed their fertility and
ease of childbirth. February derives from februa or “means of
To the Romans, February was also sacred to Juno
Februata, the goddess of febris (“fever”) of love, and of women and
marriage. On February 14, billets (small pieces of paper, each of which
had the name of a teen-aged girl written on it) were put into a
container. Teen-aged boys would then choose one billet at random. The
boy and the girl whose name was drawn would become a “couple,” joining
in erotic games at feasts and parties celebrated throughout Rome. After
the festival, they would remain sexual partners for the rest of the
year. This custom was observed in the Roman Empire for centuries.
A.D. 494, Pope Gelasius renamed the festival of Juno Februata as the
“Feast of the Purification of the Virgin Mary.” The date of its
observance was later changed from February 14 to February 2, then
changed back to the 14. It is also known as Candlemas, the Presentation
of the Lord, the Purification of the Blessed Virgin and the Feast of
the Presentation of Christ in the Temple.
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 Saint 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.
Catholic Valentine "Saints"
to the Catholic Encyclopedia, “At least three different Saint
Valentines, all of them martyrs, are mentioned in early martyrologies
under the date of 14 February. One is described as a priest at Rome,
another as bishop of Interamna (modern Terni), and these two seem both
to have suffered in the second half of the third century and to have
been buried on the Flaminian Way, but at different distances from the
city…Of the third Saint Valentine, who suffered in Africa with a number
of companions, nothing is further known.” Several biographies of
different men named Valentine were merged into one “official” St.
The church whitewashed Lupercalia even further.
Instead of putting the names of girls into a box, the names of “saints”
were drawn by both boys and girls. It was then each person’s duty to
emulate the life of the saint whose name he or she had drawn. This was
Rome’s vain attempt to “whitewash” a pagan observance by
“Christianizing” it, which God has not given man the power or authority
to do. Though the church at Rome had banned the sexual lottery, young
men still practiced a much toned-down version, sending women whom they
desired handwritten romantic messages containing St. Valentine’s name.
the centuries, St. Valentine’s Day cards became popular, especially by
the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. These cards were
painted with pictures of Cupid and hearts, and meticulously decorated
with lace, silk or flowers.
First Man Called Valentine
But who was the original Valentine? What does the name Valentine mean?
Valentine comes from the Latin Valentinus, which derives
from valens—“to be strong, powerful, mighty.”
As mentioned, the Romans celebrated Lupercalia to honor
the hunter god Lupercus.
To the Greeks, from whom the Romans had copied most of their mythology,
Lupercus was known as Pan, the god of light.
The Phoenicians worshipped the same deity as Baal, the sun god.

time, who argued with him about being "god" and even had Ibrahim thrown
into a roaring fire.
was also the founder and first lord of Babel (mentioned in the Bible in
Genesis 10:10-12). Defying God, Nimrood was the originator of the
Babylonian Mystery Religion, whose mythologies have been copied by the
Egyptians, the Greeks, the Romans and a multitude of other ancient
peoples. Under different names or titles—Pan, Lupercus, Saturn,
Osiris—Nimrood is the hunter-warrior god of the ancients.

Bible as the god of the pagans (mushrikeen). The Bible says, God warned
His people not to worship or even tolerate the ways of Baal (Nimrood).

similar to Baal, meant, “heart.” This is where the Valentine heart

was the son of Venus, Roman goddess of beauty and love. Also known as
Eros in ancient Greece, he was the son of Aphrodite. According to myth,
he was responsible for impregnating numerous goddesses and mortals.
Cupid was a child-like archer (remember, Nimrod was a skilled archer).
Mythology describes Cupid as having both a cruel and happy personality.
He would use his invisible arrows, tipped with gold, to strike
unsuspecting men and women, causing them to fall madly in love. He did
not do this for their benefit, but to drive them crazy with intense
passion, to make their lives miserable, and to laugh at the results.
Many of the gods of the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans,
Assyrians and others were modeled after one man—Nimrod.
But what does this have to do with us today? Why should
we be concerned with what happened in the past?
Allah Calls Them Mushrikeen (those who associate
partners with Allah)
the Quran and hadeeth, Allah and His messenger describe "mushrikeen" as
those who worship things that He had created (animals, the sun, the
moon, stars, trees, etc.), or man-made idols, or anything but the one
true God. He calls such people and their practices mushrikeen.
True Christians understand that God hates any customs, practices and
traditions that are rooted in paganism.
But just how serious is Allah against the pagans and
their false gods?
cursed Egypt—a nation of nature-worshippers—with ten plagues and freed
the Children of Israel from slavery. He rescued the Children of Israel
from Pharaoh’s army by parting the Red Sea and leading His people to
safety. He fed the Children of Israel manna (salwa)—special bread from
Allah— sent down from heaven. He protected them from battle-tested
Gentile armies, delivered them into the Promised Land and drove out
Why Paganism (shirk) Is Wrong
Read Quran, chapter 4, verse 48
Imagine. Israel committed a sin so vile, so disgusting,
that it even brought out the Anger of Allah!
But that was then. What about today?
Surely, parents do not sacrifice their children to pagan gods today—or
Do not be so certain. Perhaps their lives are not being sacrificed—but
what about their innocence?
Parents today expect their little ones to “fall in love” and have
boyfriends and girlfriends.

couple, sneaking a kiss or two when no one is watching.
parents get worried when their kids do not show romantic interest in
the opposite sex. They constantly ask them, “Do you have a boyfriend
yet?” or “Who’s your girlfriend?”
Yet these same parents are surprised when their

Or catches a sexually transmitted disease.
Or gets an abortion behind their back.
The Devil Sacrifices Children
St. Valentine’s Day is just one of many tools the
shayton uses to get parents to sacrifice the innocence of their
little boys and girls draw each other’s names in a lottery and send
Valentine cards and gifts to each other, declaring their “love,” they
are learning the first stages of intimate relations that the Creator
God designed specifically for emotionally mature adults.
embracing the carefree innocence of youth, growing up without the
headaches and heartaches of adulthood (finding a job, paying bills,
marriage, raising a family, etc.), children today are taught to lust
after each other.
They are caught up in a daily drama of “If-you-loved-me-you’d-sleep-with-me;
I’m-pregnant; It’s-not-mine, she-had-an-abortion.”
the time they reach adulthood, virtually every shred of innocence,
sincerity and moral decency has been stripped from them. Emotionally
drained, they have world-weary, “been there, done that” attitudes. And
their lives are just beginning.
This is why we live in a world where a teen-aged virgin
is a rare find.
Where what used to be called “shacking up” and “living in sin” is now
simply “living together.”
Where sex is nothing more than meaningless physical recreation—no
emotional attachments, no cares, no concerns.
