17 May Church, State, and Global Government Make Strange Bedfellows
The vital news of the day has been reduced to a carefully crafted summary that can be covered in two minutes or less. Truths are no longer truths, and lies are no longer lies; what matters is how you spin your truth or lie to create the perfect sound bite to move the masses. Dr. Michael Lake, The Shinar Directive
What a world we live in today. But which world is it? The black is white one, or the ‘there is only gray’ one? Or another? While some of us have always had trouble discerning deceptions, today we all are in the same boat. There are too many deceptions foisted on us via media, our governments, schools, churches, social media – only those who are willing to expend the time to study the issues can sort the propaganda from the truth.
One problem is that the entities and people who are plotting for a one-world government have a lot of money, thus a lot of power. And remember that old adage, ‘power is an aphrodisiac.’ It truly is; power seduces those who want power, those who want to sleep with power, and those who want to be with the ‘in’ crowd. And, because our schools, instead of educating our children, are corrupting their values, attitudes, and beliefs, they are molding most to succumb to peer pressure – thus wanting to be part of the ‘in’ crowd.
Re: values, attitudes, and beliefs: there are many who scream to get the church out of the state, but what I see is the state needs to get out of the church, too. Instead, the church and state are marrying. Why? In my opinion, for power. The church, especially the Catholic Church has many millions of parishioners, thus voters – great for the state. The state has a plan that will centralize power in a small elite, and if the Catholic Church is on board, the Pope and his minions will be benefactors.
The plan behind all the deception is Sustainable Development with its concomitant parts of social justice, and sustainability (defined loosely enough to be as amorphous as climate change), and the ever-present ‘common good’. Tom describes social justice “as the right and opportunity of all people ‘to benefit equally from the resources afforded us by society and the environment.’ Redistribution of wealth. Private property is a social injustice since not everyone can build wealth from it. National sovereignty is a social injustice. Universal health care is a social justice.” But there are even more nasty ramifications of SJ. Certain groups are protected under social justice, but today’s groups might very well not be tomorrow’s; it is an ever changing, nebulous dictum.
Here is a perfect definition from the globalist perspective:
As I see it, social justice requires resource equity, fairness, and respect for diversity, as well as the eradication of existing forms of social oppression. Social justice entails a “redistribution” of resources from those who have “unjustly” gained them to those who justly deserve them, and it also means creating and “ensuring” the processes of truly democratic participation in decision-making…. It seems clear that only a “decisive” redistribution of resources and decision-making power can “ensure” social justice and authentic democracy. Joe Feagin, American Sociological Review
All I can say to that is to repeat an old Tammany Hall saying: “Th’ fella’ w’at said that patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels, underestimated th’ possibilities of compassion.”
The church should be caring for souls, but it seems to care for only a few souls. The rest of us need to disappear to make Mother Earth more pleasing to the ‘right’ people. From the Vatican on Biological Extinction:
“In recent years the Pontifical Academies have held several colloquia on the subject of social justice, global inequality, and deep poverty in the contemporary world. But we haven’t addressed the question whether the Earth system is able to support the demands that humanity has been making on it, nor how global inequality and poverty relate to that. The survival of the natural world, and ultimately our survival, depends on our adoption of principles of social justice and sustainability. And sustainability requires care for the biodiversity that supplies the services that enable humanity to live and prosper. As PAS President Werner Arber stated recently, the question is now not so much how our children and grandchildren will fare, but whether the world will be able to function sustainably during the remainder of our own lives.
“The living fabric of the world, which we are enjoyed in Genesis, Chapter II to protect, is slipping through our fingers without our showing much sign of caring.” Pontifical Academy of Sciences
Obviously, the Catholic Church doesn’t believe God is in control anymore.
And, of course, the church has friends in low places. In 1974, Paul Ehrlich, was crying that we were about to experience a new ice age. Now he is on the global warming/climate change bandwagon, and he is advising the papacy with no sign of contrition for his wild swings of prophecy: “One in five species on Earth now faces extinction, and that will rise to 50% by the end of the century unless urgent action is taken. A world population of around a billion would have an overall pro-life effect. This could be supported for many millennia and sustain many more human lives in the long term compared with our current uncontrolled growth and prospect of sudden collapse.” That is the stark view of the world’s leading biologists, ecologists and economists who gathered to determine the social and economic changes needed to save the planet’s biosphere.
“The living fabric of the world is slipping through our fingers without our showing much sign of caring,” say the organizers of the Biological Extinction conference held at the Vatican.
Between the Vatican and the Greens, we humans are damned – and rightly so. They convened a workshop titled, ‘How to Save the Natural World on Which We Depend,’ …to strategize together on how to limit the mass extinction event caused by rampant over-development, climate change, overpopulation, and unsustainable agricultural practices.”
“The living fabric of the world is slipping through our fingers without our showing much sign of caring,” said the organizers of the workshop.
Forgive me for wondering how the Catholic Church went from banning birth control to worrying about overpopulation? And the ‘living fabric of the world’? I am surmising they mean Mother Earth and not the babies not being born.
