Are You Green Enough?

greengiant1.jpgRecently, my breath has been taken away at the speed of green. From a few pesky, fringe groups constantly harping on environmental issues, it has mushroomed into a big time political force whose influence can no longer be swept aside. The wide acclaim of Al Gore’s “Inconvenient Truth” movie serves as a pretty good indicator of green’s clout, but even more revealing is the number of corporate sponsors who have climbed on board. Many major corporations now trumpet their green initiatives. It will probably not be long before the recalcitrant few will feel the wrath of environmental aficionados.

Should we not fully embrace measure to protect the earth? Is it not the Christian thing to do? Should we allow industrial concerns, corporate giants and rank-and-file consumerism to rape, pillage and plunder our natural resources? One would think it is a no-brainer. A few strategic questions, however, seem to me to be in order before jumping on the bandwagon.

  • Who are the major players guiding the movement?
  • Are there any ulterior motives that we should know about?
  • Is the major impetus behind environmental causes a simple conservationist conscience, or are there religious beliefs that fuel the activities and philosophies of the adherents?
  • What are the ultimate goals of the green movement?
  • What will be the consequences on the economy, the freedom of the people and the standing of this nation in the world?
  • Will the goals of green make us vulnerable to our enemies?
  • Are the objectives of the green agenda to be followed and enforced internationally across the board, or is this nation expected to comply unilaterally?

Maybe the most important question to ask is whether or not the greenies consider any of these questions to be unseemly and rooted in selfishness. In other words, are we simply to accept the green agenda without a thorough analysis and vetting all of its precepts? Judging from the past responses that the green movement has often given to its detractors, we should expect a firestorm of guilt, blaming, irresponsibility and charges of evil for asking even the simplest of questions. And when we reject their superficial, inane answers, we should anticipate the rancor to rise volcanically.

I have deep reservations about the true intentions of the green movement. I believe that it is anti-capitalistic, anti-freedom and anti-American. I believe that adopting its tenets will ruin our economy, deny our basic freedoms and endanger our national security. Furthermore, I believe that these outcomes are intentional, not coincidental. Far more than an environmental awareness program, it is designed to knock America off of its hegemonic perch and make us equal to all other nations of the world. The ultimate goal of the greenies is to impose a system quite different from the constitutional, representative republic that we now enjoy. They want us to acquiesce to a one world rulership on the order of the United Nations.

But the political, military and economic aspects of the dangerous green movement do not bother me nearly as much as its religious overtones. The green agenda is driven by a religion that rivals all other religions of the world. It is pagan, idolatrous and heretical It stands for ideals diametrically opposed to Christianity. Many sources may cited to prove this contention. Perhaps the most courageous of all is  (The greens may have redirected this domain name.  Try Googling it if necessary.)  In it you will find full documentation of the paganistic roots of the greenies. When one begins to research their agenda, it becomes obvious that they make no bones about who they are and what they believe.

Here is a sample of the website’s offerings: (I quote large portions of the text because there is no apparent prohibition from doing so. I take none of the credit for the following quoted material.) “Anyone who has studied the global green movement has no doubt heard of “Gaia”. Believers in Gaia, or ‘Gaians’ as they often refer to themselves, claim that the earth is a sentient super-being, an ancient goddess spirit, deserving of worship and reverence. Sir James Lovelock, in his book Gaia: ‘A new look at Life’, states that “all of the lifeforms on this planet are a part of Gaia - part of one spirit goddess that sustains life on earth. Since this transformation into a living system the interventions of Gaia have brought about the evolving diversity of living creatures on planet Earth.” Gaians teach that the “Earth Goddess”, or Mother Earth, must be protected from destructive human activity. It is this belief that fuels the environmental movement, sustainable development, and a global push for the return of industrialized nations to a more primitive way of life.

“Gaians claim that “we are part of Nature and Nature is part of us, therefore God is part of us, and God is everywhere, and everything is God”. In reality Gaia is actually a revival of the “Earth-goddess” found in many ancient pagan religions. The current Gaia Cult is a cunning mixture of science, paganism, eastern mysticism, wicca and feminism. While researching this subject I have been astounded by how many prominent environmental leaders, politicians, scientists, and religious leaders profess a literal belief in Gaia. Gaians appear to have infiltrated every level of power at the United Nations and risen to prominent positions in many Governments. I strongly believe that they are the most dangerous and devious cult on the face of the planet.

“Gaians teach that the Divine Earth must be protected from all threats no matter what the cost. The United Nations Global Biodiversity Assessment, explicitly refers to Christianity as a faith that has set humans apart from nature and stripped nature of its sacred qualities. “Conversion to Christianity has therefore meant an abandonment of an affinity with the natural world for many forest dwellers, peasants, fishers all over the world …The northeastern hilly states of India bordering China and Myanmar supported small scale, largely autonomous shifting cultivator societies until the 1950’s. These people followed their own religious traditions that included setting apart between 10% and 30% of the landscape as sacred groves and ponds.” While condemning Christianity and Islam as the root of all environmental evil, the document goes on to praise Buddhism and Hinduism as they “did not depart as drastically from the perspective of humans as members of a community of beings including other living and non-living elements.”

“Al Gore, in his book Earth in the Balance, echoes this view “Prehistoric Europe and much of the world was based on the worship of a single earth goddess, who was assumed to be the fount of all life and who radiated harmony among all living things. Much of the evidence for the existence of this primitive religion comes from the many thousands of artifacts uncovered in ceremonial sites. These sites are so widespread that they seem to confirm the notion that a goddess religion was ubiquitous through much of the world until the antecedents of today’s religions, most of which still have a distinctly masculine orientation…swept out of India and the Near East, almost obliterating belief in the goddess. The last vestige of organized goddess worship was eliminated by Christianity as late as the fifteenth century in Lithuania.”

“Gore then quotes deChardin, “‘The fate of mankind, as well as of religion, depends upon the emergence of a new faith in the future.’ Armed with such a faith, we might find it possible to resanctify the earth…” Gore is also fond of quoting an old Native Indian saying “Will you teach your children what we have taught our children? That the earth is our Mother. What befalls the earth, befalls all the sons of the earth. This we know - the earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth.”

“Gaia worship is at the very heart of the Global Green Agenda. Sustainable Development, Agenda 21, the Earth Charter, and the Global Warming theory are all part of the Gaians mission to save “Mother Earth” from her human infestation. Gaians have succeeded in uniting the environmental movement, the new age movement, Eastern religions, the United Nations and even the leaders of many Christian denominations behind this vile new form of paganism.

“The earth is not dead matter. She is alive.
Now begin to speak to the earth as you walk.
You can speak out loud, or just talk to her in your mind.
Send your love into her with your exhalation. Feel your
heart touching upon the heart of the planet. Say to her
whatever words come to you: Mother Earth, I love you.
Mother Earth, I bless you. May you be healed. May all
your creatures be happy. Peace to you, Mother Earth.
On behalf of the human race, I ask forgiveness
for having injured you. Forgive us, Mother Earth”
- “Prayer to the Earth”, Student Textbook

    We cannot take this movement lightly. They now have unlimited financial backing, the favor of most multi-national corporations, acceptance by most major political parties, endorsement from mainstream denominations and the enthusiastic support of the academic community. It is time to make your calling and election sure.
