New “Church,” Old Hatred

In 1973, Klassen founded the Church of the Creator in Lighthouse Point, Florida. At the same time, he published its first manifesto, Nature’s Eternal Religion. He proclaimed in the 511-page screed: “We completely reject the Judeo-democratic-Marxist values of today and supplant them with new and basic values. of which race is the foundation.” Klassen contrasted his new religion, “Creativity,” with Christianity, which he termed a “suicidal religion.”

For much of the ’70s, Klassen achieved little recognition for his self-created theology. Then, in 1979, he began mailing unsolicited copies of a booklet titled “The Brutal Truth About Inflation and Financial Enslavement — The Federal Reserve Board — The Most Gigantic Counterfeiting Ring in the World.” The essay alleged that “the Federal Reserve Banks are owned, lock. stock and barrel, by a criminal gang of “International Bankers” and claimed, The Federal Reserve owns the US. Government and manipulates it like a puppet, solely for the interests of this avaricious international gang of Jewish jackals, who control the world, its money, and its economy.

Klassen’s pamphlet concludes, “Now that you understand the Jewish program of piracy, looting and enslavement by means of the Federal Reserve and money manipulations, now get the rest of the story and the program of The Church of the Creator by reading their White Man’s Bible: Nature’s Eternal Religion.”

Klassen continued these apparently random mailings for much of the next decade.

In 1981, the COTC founder published a sequel to Nature’s Eternal Religion, titled The White Man’s Bible. This 453 page book revealed such key Klassen teachings as:

“Today’s Black Plague is spelled niggers…. We regard them as subhuman or humanoid….

The most deadly threat the White Race faces is the tremendous expansion of the mud [i.e., “non-white”] races led by the arch-enemy — the treacherous Jew….

We…declare everlasting war on the Jews, a war to the finish, until we have expelled them from all the lands inhabited by the white race.”
