The Onset Of Another Religious War

Actually religious wars have never ceased as evidenced by "terror attacks" on non-Muslim parts of the world. Thanks to oil wealth and a continued ascendancy of Wahabbism, the confidence that the Caliphate can be re-established is at an all time high. The skirmishes of the past were merely probes the large scale attack is now on.

The more interesting occurrence is the recent warning or notice by Pope Benedict XVI that the hoax of Global Warming must only be considered something else when hard incontrovertible scientific evidence can be offered in support. This is the first rebuke to Pope Al the 1st from a nearly unimpeachable source. The leader of one billion Catholics around the world has the weight to criticize and be noticed.

Because atheists, agnostics, puny liberals, and other dupes need something spiritual, they have embraced Global Warming as the cult that it is. Pope Al Gore I is it putative leader, though he must guard his title jealously. As the ideas promulgated by this group of fanatics is defined as a "consensus of the informed" it is really simply a way to have a spiritual life and feel good about oneself.

There can be no consensus in science beyond that of granting that a particular area of research has promise and should be further explored. Political and economic change should not be suggested nor implemented on the hysterical leadership of the UN or the fears of the bewildered. The outlandish claims in the face of contrary evidence are clues to the false premise being advanced.

The scene today is similar to other end of world cults in which the leadership advise abandoning all worldly goods (with the exception of the leader's) and sitting on a mountain top awaiting the end on a specified date. So too do the Global Warmites predict an end date: by the end of the century. Does this sound familiar?

The intrusion of Pope Benedict XVI will be unwelcome by Pope Al the 1st and ignored in Europe for reasons of secular ego. Around the world the result may be different. The development of this latest skirmish will be interesting to watch while the rest of the world ignores the more serious threat of Global Islamofascism.

Atheism Why So Strident?

There seems to be within the human psyche a need for spirituality, though obvious it is denied vociferously by many. Religion today takes many forms and perhaps this is a not so recent trend. In the United States of America there is much pain caused and endured by the greatly misunderstood doctrine of separation of church and state. This idea has been completely twisted out of shape by those who want attention, are conformists, want to seem more intelligent than they are, maliciously want to hurt others, and those who want a religion but one that seems unorganized.

Separation of Church and State simply means that there will be no national religion established, maintained, and dictated by the government of the United States. This has nothing to do with all the things atheists have, are, and will complain about. All this noise of being excluded, having their feelings hurt, and being snubbed by society is just that: noise. What is really going on is their need to believe clashing with their need for attention. They speak of the intolerance by believers regarding the beliefs of atheists. Is this true?

At this point atheists are reduced to an undignified search for symbols; the Tree of Knowledge comes to mind as does the "Celebration of The Seasons". Atheism is the polar opposite of any organized belief system that includes a deity or group of deities. Therefore no symbols should be needed. Rather atheists should go quietly on their way ignoring the stupidity of believers instead of competing with them for the spotlight.

For most human beings such an action, while noble, is spiritually impossible. This is proved by the confused nature of societies around the planet. In the USA drugged out teenagers are shooting their fellows in hopes of gaining notoriety; a desperate idea as they are usually not around themselves to know if they were successful. In Muslim society the fear of non conformance is so great that those groups have not advanced beyond the 9th Century AD. Contact with other religious groups is generally proscribed by "modern" Islam and in some cases is punishable by death. The main thrust of Islamic politics today is world domination by any means.

Neither Hindu nor Muslim will tolerate the other when the chance to kill one or the other presents itself. In China the government is the religion all others are not or only barely tolerated; in the latter case only if such religions resemble parlor games. This tedious situation abides almost everywhere.

Today a new religion with a secular caste is being foisted upon its citizens by the state. This attempt will probably be successful though short lived. Its name is Global Warming, its high priest is Al Gore and his acolytes though myriad are chiefly represented by politicians looking for a way to preserve their power. Once the sun flares abate the crisis will pass and success will be claimed by the Church of Global Warming: it is false.

However as in typical organized religions non-believers are considered heretics and persecution is allowed. Atheists are betraying their beliefs simply by making such an issue of them. The existence of any belief system is what irritates them. Their sad need for attention and the intolerance of any but their own ideas is bringing them to the fore now more than ever. It is safe for them.

Want To Change American Political Life?

Seldom are endorsements made in these pages, but this one is different and essential. Below is a transcription of a handout which will make clear the urgency:

"Wouldn't you love to see our representatives and senators in Washington accomplishing great things in an atmosphere of cooperation and productivity, without all the party politics and corruption that so often stops progress in its tracks?

I also have that wish, and I've given it a name : America 357.

For the last six year, the movement has been working at the grassroots level to get partisan politics out of the federal government. We've watched as party interests dominate decision-making in Washington. We've seen the undeserved influence enjoyed by lobbyists and others with enough money to buy preferential treatment from our lawmakers.....treatment the rest of us have a right to but can't afford.

And we have seen how all this degrades the quality of governance being delivered to average American citizens like you and me.

Do you agree that party politics has tainted our government?

America 357 was founded with a goal of uniting like-minded citizens who are prepared to stand together and demand that out politicians become accountable to us, the people, once again.

We, the people, elected them but you'd never guess it by their actions in Congress. That has to change.

There is a growing appetite in America for responsibility and accountability in government. We want to expand this movement into a nationwide revolution.

Do you believe in a peaceful political revolution?

Then please get involved in America 357 b y reading the companion document, which explains more about our goals (including why the number 357) Consider subscribing to our free newsletter.

By supporting America 357 you will help propel this movement forward into a much better future for all of us ; and you'll have the satisfaction of being at the forefront of a history making venture.

Let's make a promise to America. Let's promise we will wort to give her back the democratic principles that were her birthright from the very start. This is not only a gift to our nation but also to ourselves and future generations.

Together we can take the power out of party politics and put it back where it belongs: into the hands of the people. Together we can send a clear message to Washington : THE PARTY IS OVER! "
