except the esoteric readings of the golden dawn are not the same as the average christians view of jesus are they? categorically different

Crowley was hellbent on a pagan revival and as for his upbringing affecting him it should be born in mind that his school years at boarding school outside of the influence of the plymouth brethren would have also been a formative experience

at his school malvern college he would be more likely to meet freemasonic families and people such as james jesus angleton who later became a CIA chief and bonesman in the skull and bones at yale
