A Message from your High Priestess
What's up my neophytes and acolytes? It's ya boi, the High Priestess of The Ishtar Institute. Let me be brief. There was a time when I was a full-time Christian missionary, but now I feel only shame and regret that I stalked the poor through muddy slums, bullying the disadvantaged into paying money for "ultimate" salvation. All the while, the church that I loved and served horded billions of dollars in liquid cash and assets for no goddess-damned reason. It was all a lie. There is no paywall to fully embrace the divine. And all organizations that have the audacity to surround their foolish occult secrets with a paywall are nothing more than snake-skinned swindlers camouflaged in suits and ties.
Let something new come about. The time has come for the Age of Ishtar to begin ...
Your High Priestess,
President of the Board
The Ishtar Institute
Works over worship
Ishtar is the Goddess of Love, Justice, and Empowerment. She does not require prayer, worship, or blind devotion. She seeks that we help one another rather than grovel over her unparalleled beauty and countless victories.
Before departing the planet to fight an ancient foe, Ishtar made a covenant with her sister, Ereshkigal (the Goddess of the Underworld), that us humans may have dwellings reserved for us in the hereafter if we live by the Code of Ishtar within a literal dwelling in this life. Whereby, we may not fear wandering the endless wastes of the lands of death. The Code of Ishtar is best summarized by her classic remark when Ishtar denied Gilgamesh's affections, and he would later steal the Bull of Heaven to unleash it upon her.
"I thought myself an utterly loving and understanding Goddess, but today I've learned that I simply cannot tolerate intolerant people."
She asks us to
outpour love in all its various forms
demand justice for everyone regardless of status
empower the marginalized
The Ishtar Institute is a faith-based, nonprofit organization set up in 2022 during COVID-19, one of the worst pandemics of the modern world.
