Bringing It Home
The UN's One-World Religion
The histories and symbols that served our fathers encumber and divide us.
Sacraments and rituals harbor disputes and waste our scanty emotions.... The
modernization of the religious impulse leads us straight to the effort for
the establishment of the world state as a duty....1

Only a person totally deaf and blind could fail to notice the incredible
occult, New Age, and neo-pagan explosion that has been rapidly transforming
the Americas and Western Europe into what the advocates of global change
gleefully refer to as "post-Christian civilizations."
A majority of
Americans still consider themselves Christian, but find they are
increasingly in retreat before a steady onslaught of anti-Christian media
assaults, court rulings, attacks from academia, and pop culture offerings.
Meanwhile, hedonism, Satanism, witchcraft, astrology, vampirism,
homosexuality, Eastern mystic cults, and "Indigenous Peoples" religions are
exalted by the same media mandarins and Hollywood elites who control our
"news" and "entertainment."
What very few of these Americans realize is that this hideous "spiritual
transformation" is tied directly to the United Nations, where the one-world
architects intend to enthrone their planned New World Religion. And as this
Satanic enthronement progresses (yes, we mean, literally, Satanic),
Christians and Orthodox Jews and Muslims as well will find themselves
increasingly in the crosshairs of the new world order, singled out as
"bigoted," "dogmatic," and "intolerant" for insisting on clinging to their
"archaic" and "divisive" religious beliefs.
Religious leaders and adherents of all sects are being aggressively evangelized to adopt the UN's new "global ethic," a gooey
religious syncretism, environmentalism, socialism, and militant secular
humanism. People of all religious backgrounds are being enlisted to embrace
this "global ethic" as a "core belief" of their religious faith.
As more and more people adopt this new "planetary consciousness," the
one-world Insiders know that support will grow for:
global disarmament, for both individuals and nations
socialism and Communism
religious persecution, in the name of "tolerance" and combating "hate"
If the above statements are shocking and incredible to you, then you are
unaware of easily verifiable facts concerning events and developments that
are dramatically impacting our society. Many of the steps in this diabolic
scheme are taking place before our very eyes, in the open, as British
novelist and Fabian Socialist historian H.G. Wells proposed in 1928 in his The Open Conspiracy: Blue Prints For a
Wells, an ardent one-worlder and one of the most widely read authors and
intellectuals of his day, conceded that human history has proven that
religious ideals are essential to the sustaining of any society.
having rejected Christianity and all other religions, he determined that
only a new "modern" religion could sustain the socialist world government he
"The conspiracy of modern religion against the established
institutions of the world must be an open conspiracy," he averred, and must
reject "secret methods or tactical insincerities."7
This statement was itself a "tactical insincerity," of course, since Wells
and his one-world, socialist comrades never planned to be completely open
about their schemes. Thus the brazen symbol of deception on the Fabian
Socialist coat-of-arms: a wolf in
"It seems unavoidable," said the Fabian strategist, "that if religion is to
develop unifying and directive power in the present confusion of human
affairs it must adapt itself... ; it must divest itself of its sacred
histories, its gross preoccupations, its posthumous prolongation of personal
"The time has come," said Wells, "to strip religion right down to"
what he saw as the spiritual essentials: "the desire for service" and
But "service" and "subordination" to the deities created by Prophet Wells
and his fellow high-priests. Never one to allow humility to dim the glory of
his divine brilliance, Wells boldly proclaimed:
"So I bear my witness and
argue my design. This is, I declare, the truth and the way of salvation."9
Moreover, he announced,
"... it will be a world religion. This large loose
assimilatory mass of groups and societies will be definitely and obviously
attempting to swallow up the entire population of the world and become the
new human community."10
The global religion envisioned by Wells was a secular,
socialist one, but some of his fellow Fabians had migrated from atheism to
the occult. Two of the most important pilgrims of that variety were radical
feminist Annie Besant and British journalist and newspaper publisher William
Besant became a fervent disciple of Madame Helena Blavatsky, the occultist, satanist founder of the modern Theosophical movement. Besant eventually
became the international president of the Theosophical Society.
Alice and Foster Bailey, who succeeded Annie Besant, unabashedly revealed
their demonic sympathies with the launching of Lucifer Publishing Company
and its theosophical journal, Lucifer. Later, however, they realized that
the Christian West was still too "unenlightened" to accept open Luciferian
doctrine and changed the name of Lucifer Publishing Company to the more
esoteric (and less likely to offend) Lucis Publishing Company.
the Lucis Trust to serve as the
umbrella organization for a profusion of globalist/New Age/occult
organizations and programs that are key catalysts of the emerging new world
religion. These include the Arcane School, World Goodwill, Triangles, Lucis
Publishing, Lucis Productions, Lucis Trust Libraries, and the New Group of
According to the Lucis Trust,
"World Goodwill is recognized ... at the
United Nations as a Non-governmental Organisation" and is "represented at
regular briefing sessions at the United Nations in New York and Geneva."12
The "regular weekly broadcasts of talks given at World Goodwill Forum
meetings and programs produced by Lucis Productions" in London and New York
are beamed by Radio For Peace International in English, Spanish, German, and
French, on shortwave, to a "worldwide audience" from the UN University for
Peace in Costa Rica.13
Lucis Trust also serves as custodian of
the Meditation Room at the UN's New
York headquarters.14 This dark and ominous theosophical shrine contains no
symbols of the world's major religions. A barren, metallic altar and a
stark, Picassoesque mural of geometric shapes provide spiritual symbolism.
Literature provided at the UN describes the symbols as "a rectangular
six-ton block of iron ore lit by a single shaft of light and a muted
abstract painting at the far end of the small room, similarly
And what does all this signify?
Theosophist authors Eunice and Felix Layton
connect the room's symbolism to,
"the story of the descent of the divine into
every human life, its apparent death and burial in the material world and
its inevitable final triumphant resurrection."16
Keep in mind that it is
Lucifer, the "light-bearer," who is the "divine" one in Blavatsky's twisted
theosophist theology, and you'll understand why this bizarre temple is
entirely apropos for the Tower of Babel on New York's East River.*
* Another principal conduit of UN spiritualism is the Temple of
Understanding, operated with the support of the Lucis Trust. It is located
near the UN at the historic Cathedral of St. John the Divine, a center of
political and occult/New Age activism, which also houses the radical
Interfaith Center of New York and the Luciferians of the Lindisfarne Center.
Launched in the early 1960s as the "spiritual counterpart of the United
Nations," The Temple of Understanding's founding sponsors included an odd
assortment of Establishment Insiders, socialists, humanists, Communist
frontiers, religious figures, and entertainment celebrities: Senator John D.
Rockefeller IV (CFR, TC); then-Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara (CFR,
TC); Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger; IBM president Thomas J.
Watson (CFR); Socialist Party leader Norman Thomas; Eleanor Roosevelt;
Time-Life president James A. Linen (CFR); homosexual author Christopher
Isherwood; and Fabian Socialist professor and columnist Max Lerner.19
The Temple of Understanding works closely with the UN Secretariat, the World
Council of Churches, the World Conference on Religion and Peace, the UN's
Society for Enlightenment and Transformation, and other "spiritual leaders"
to sponsor convocations for "global spirituality." These conferences, which
have burgeoned in size and frequency over the past decade, invariably turn
out to be workshops for religious syncretism, which aims at melding and
blending the world's disparate faiths into one global, neo-pagan, occult
religion or "Earth Ethic."
William Stead, publisher of the radical Pall Mall Gazette, was not only a
socialist and theosophist he was also an intimate associate of the
super-rich, megalomaniacal, homosexual Cecil Rhodes, whom we discussed in
Recall that Rhodes, William Stead, and a small group of highborn graduates
of Oxford and Cambridge, all fervent apostles of the socialist Professor
John Ruskin, formed a "secret society" (the words are Rhodes') called the
"Society of the Elect." Rhodes admitted that his plan for dominion was "a
scheme to take the government of the whole world."17
In other words, a
conspiracy. Envisioning a UN-type world government vested with irresistible
military force, Rhodes insisted that the scheme must entail "the foundation
of so great a power as to hereafter render wars impossible."18 It was in the
furtherance of this conspiracy that Rhodes' secret society founded the Royal
Institute of International Affairs and CFR.
Both of these front groups, as
we have seen, played key roles in establishing the UN, and are likewise
involved in building the new global religion.
Indoctrination: Subordination to the State
Let us drop back for a moment to
revisit H.G. Wells. We have
noted the continuing influence of his occult, socialist confreres Annie
Besant and William Stead from early in the last century to the present day.
But Wells himself is also very much alive in "world order" circles.
Quotations from his works are scattered throughout New Age and new world
order books and publications. The World Federalist Association (WFA), for
instance, continues to publish some of his essays, including "How a Federal
World Government May Come About," taken from his book The Outline of History
According to Wells, in that one-world polemic:
The essential task of men of goodwill in all
states and countries remains the same, it is an educational task, and
its very essence is to bring to the minds of all men everywhere, as a
necessary basis for world co-operation, a new telling and
interpretation, a common interpretation, of history.... The world
perishes unless sovereignty is merged and nationality subordinated.21
Wells sets down what he sees as "the broad fundamentals of the coming world
"It will be based," he says, "upon a common world religion, very
much simplified and universalized.... This will not be Christianity nor
Islam nor Buddhism nor any such specialized form of religion, but religion
itself pure and undefiled; the Eightfold Way, the Kingdom of Heaven,
brotherhood, creative service, and self-forgetfulness. Throughout the world
men's thoughts and motives will be turned by education.... And education, as
the new age will conceive it, will go on throughout life."22
This is precisely what we have been experiencing in our
schools and colleges, as well as the government-directed "lifelong learning"
programs that gradually have become an integral part of so many corporate
and governmental jobs. Which is not to imply that we are, or ought to be,
opposed to "lifelong learning," as the term is commonly understood, in its
most innocent and benign meaning.
To the contrary, we accept it as a fact of
Ours is not the first generation to realize that
learning does not (or should not) end with the completion of for-mal
schooling; wise people (of all socio-economic and educational backgrounds)
throughout the ages have recognized the need for (as well as the pleasure to
be derived from) continuous lifelong education. In today's fast-changing,
technology-driven world, it is more important than ever to be constantly
updating skills and learning new ones.
However, in using the same terms, we do not all mean the same thing. We
should be very familiar with this phenomenon by now. "Tolerance" no longer
means "live and let live" civility; it means using the power of government
to force majority acceptance of the perverse practices of a militant
minority. "Peacekeeping" means carpet-bombing and/or invading and militarily
subjugating whomever the UN has designated as villain du jour.
"Multiculturalism" means demonizing Christian and European civilization for
genocide, exploitation, and raping Mother Earth.
"Investing" doesn't mean
private individuals freely deciding what to do with their own capital
assets; it means politicians and bureaucrats plundering your savings through
taxation, and then spending it on socialist boondoggles.
So we should not be surprised that the same coercive Utopians have also
co-opted "lifelong learning." In their lexicon it no longer is an elective;
the individual cannot be allowed to determine if and when he will take any
continued formal schooling. Such important decisions must be made by
superior "experts." Or as Wells put it, "we should have the collective
affairs of the world managed by suitably equipped groups of the most
interested, intelligent and devoted people" such as himself and his fellow
Subversive World Council of Churches One of the early major attempts to
co-opt religion in the service of world government came in 1942. Time
magazine devoted considerable space in its March 16, 1942 issue to a report
on a gathering at Ohio Wesleyan University of hundreds of delegates
representing the more than 30 denominations called together by the
notoriously pro-Communist Federal Council of Churches
The FCC (which later changed its name to the National Council
of Churches, NCC) was the American branch of the Communist-controlled World Council of Churches, which still exists and has
never ceased its subversive activities.
Chairing the 1942 FCC
Wesleyan confab was Insider John Foster Dulles, a
founder of the
CFR and, together with his brother Allen Dulles (CFR), a
member of the Woodrow Wilson-Colonel House team that tried to foist the
League of Nations on the United States. John Dulles would later go on to
promote the new world order as Secretary of State under President
Eisenhower. However, at the 1942 FCC conference he was lining up church
support for the United Nations that would be coming three years later.
As Time reported, the Dulles-led conference produced a political program of
"extreme internationalism." Some of the "high spots" of that program were,
Ultimately, "a world government of delegated powers."
Strong immediate limitations on national sovereignty.
International control of all armies and navies.
"A universal system of money...."
Progressive elimination of all tariff and quota restrictions on world
According to Time, the conference,
"held that 'a new order of economic life
is both imminent and imperative' a new order that is sure to come either
'through voluntary cooperation ... or through explosive political
"'Collectivism is coming whether we like it or not,' the
delegates were told by no less a churchman than England's Dr. William Paton,
co-secretary of the World Council of Churches." 25
The problem is that Dr.
Paton and his comrades did want collectivism, and they were doing everything
in their power to fasten it upon the peoples of the world, through both
patient gradualism and "explosive political revolution." The Time story
finished on this note:
The ultimate goal:
"a duly constituted world government ... an international
court ... international administrative bodies with necessary powers, and
adequate international police forces and provision for enforcing its
worldwide economic authority."26
The Dulles-FCC propaganda parley no doubt greatly assisted the Insiders'
globalist plans, both in building religious support for U.S. entry into the
forthcoming United Nations, and in neutralizing opposition to the same
organization. In the decades since that confab at Ohio Wesleyan University,
UN religious summitry has played an increasingly important part in the
one-world transformation scheme.
The World "Peace" Summit
The granddaddy of these convocations, the United
Nations Millennium World Peace Summit of Religious and Spiritual Leaders,
was held in New York City in late August 2000 (not to be confused with the
gathering of Heads of State at the UN's Millennium Summit, which followed in
September). The Peace Summit offered terrifying glimpses of the outrageous
and demonic "global spirituality" the Insiders have planned for us.
The outrages began even before the Peace Summit began, when the UN
organizers announced that the Dalai Lama would not be invited because his
attendance would offend Communist China!27
So, while more than a thousand
religious leaders and gurus representing every conceivable "faith tradition"
gathered in New York under banners of "tolerance," "peace," and
"brotherhood," one of the world's best-known religious figures, the revered
leader of millions of Buddhists, and a man who exemplifies those virtues the
UN summit extolled, was barred from attendance because the totalitarian,
genocidal butchers who have been brutally occupying his tiny kingdom of
Tibet for half a century would get upset!
The hypocrisy and outrage multiplied as the Summit got underway. Not only
was the Dalai Lama excluded, but Red China was given a platform to denounce
him and the many other victims of their brutal religious persecution. Representing the
Butchers of Beijing at this UN spiritual confabulation was "Bishop" Michael
Fu Tieshan of the PRC's "Patriotic Catholic Church."28
Bishop Fu is not a
genuine Roman Catholic bishop recognized by the Vatican; he is an agent of the Communist government who
provides protective cover for his masters while they cruelly oppress real
Catholic bishops, priests, and lay faithful. Real Chinese Catholics like the
late Ignatius Cardinal Kung Pin-Mei, who spent more than 30 years in Red
China's prisons. Cardinal Kung was arrested in 1955, along with more than
200 other Catholic priests and Church leaders.
They were abused, tortured,
and publicly humiliated at show trials. Cardinal Kung was kept in solitary
confinement during much of his heroic three decades of imprisonment. He died
in exile, in the United States, at the age of 98, on March 12, 2000 just a
few months before the UN "Peace" Summit. He was the Catholic Church's oldest
cardinal.29 Other aged servants of God remain in prison. In February 2000,
for example, shortly before Cardinal Rung's death, 80-year old Archbishop
John Yang was arrested during a midnight raid at his home by the Communist
The persecution continued after the Summit as well. On September 14, 2000,
barely a week after the PRC butchers were welcomed to the Summit, Bishop
Thomas Zeng Jingmu was arrested in his town of Hangpu, in the Southeastern
province of Jiangxi. The frail, 80-year-old bishop was taken by force to the
local prison of Linchuan. Bishop Zeng, who has been arrested many times for
his faith, has suffered more than 30 years in prison since the 1950s. Also
arrested at the same time as Bishop Zeng were Auxiliary Bishop Deng Hui and
Father Liao Haiqing.31
Many other Christians in China share this same fate. A few days before the
start of the Summit, three American evangelists were arrested in China in
the tyrannical regime's crackdown on Evangelical Protestant "house
churches." The Americans were among 130 Christians netted in the Communist
sweep of worship services in private homes.32
This was but the latest in an ongoing
pattern of persecution that includes the execution by firing squad of
Reverend Liu Jiaguo.33 And the persecution of Christians has been increasing
and intensifying not mellowing
in recent years, with each new concession from the U.S. and the West. At
the same time, the Beijing regime has also been engaged in an ongoing brutal
suppression of the Falun Gong spiritual exercise and meditation sect, as
well as a continuing persecution of Chinese Muslims.34
In his address to the UN's "spiritual" Peace Summit, Bishop Fu Tieshan, the
puppet-stooge of these Red Chinese persecutors, said:
Let us pray for the wisdom of the Holy Spirit, respect the purposes
and principles of the U.N. Charter, and from now on, guard against
and put an end to anything that taint and desecrate religious purity...
Today in China, facts and other practice genuinely reflect the harmony
between different religions. And under the protection of the Constitution
other laws, we enjoy comprehensive and full religious freedom.35
In an obvious attack on the Dalai Lama and the many brave religious
believers suffering under the Communist regime, "Bishop" Fu said:
present, there are still many violent and evil activities going on 'in the
name of religion.' Some people have made use of religious differences to
fuel ethnic feuds and provoke so-called conflicts of civilizations; some
want to trample upon the sovereignty of other countries under the pretext of
'protecting religious human rights.'"36
Did any of the esteemed spiritual leaders attending the Peace Summit walk
out in protest over this brazen display of hypocrisy? Did they announce
their "solidarity" with their brothers who are suffering for their religious
convictions? Did they demand that Red China stop its vicious persecution of
all religions? Did they even timidly ask our Beijing "partners" to lighten up with the truncheons and thumbscrews?
Hah! Not even
close! Instead, they politely applauded (some enthusiastically
cheered) this puppet of the Communist persecutors.
Most Americans, if they saw or heard any coverage of the Summit in the major
CFR-dominated media, were not apprised of the cruel charade that was played
out there. Few are aware that Bishop Fu Tieshan is a fraud or that
religionists of all types are routinely persecuted in Red China.
CNN certainly wasn't going to expose this sham; CNN founder and current
vice-chairman of CNN parent company Time Warner, Ted Turner, not only was a
major financial sponsor of the Summit, but also honorary chairman of the
Turner, who is infamous for his profanity, womanizing, and scathing
verbal attacks on Christianity, Christian leaders, the Ten Commandments, and
Biblical morality, couldn't resist using the Summit podium to criticize the
"very intolerant" Christianity of his boyhood and to propose a more global,
all-embracing spirituality for the "one human race."37
Global Ethic Kung Phooey
The "spirituality" that One-World Ted and his
fellow Insiders have in mind is to be found in the UN's "Declaration of a
Global Ethic," which UNESCO commissioned renegade "theologian" Hans Kung to
draft.38 Yes, while real Christian heroes like Cardinal Kung, who suffer
torture for their faith, are completely ignored by the CFR "news" cartel,
left-wing ideologues like Hans Kung are celebrated.
For those who like their theology dished up from the likes of Ted Turner and
Bishop Fu Tieshan which appears to be most of the globalist folk who
populate the UN diplomatic corps and delegations to UN conferences Hans
Kung was a perfect choice.
In his 1991 book Global Responsibility: In Search
of a New World Ethic, Kung declared:
Any form of... church conservatism is to be rejected.... To put it bluntly:
No regressive or repressive religion whether Christian,
Islamic, Jewish or of whatever provenance has a long-term future.39
Moreover, he said:
"If ethics is to function for the well-being of all, it
must be indivisible. The undivided world increasingly needs an undivided
ethic. Postmodern men and women need common values, goals, ideals,
That's right, UN "diversity" is broad enough to embrace every
imaginable navel-gazing mystic, diapered swami, saffron-robed guru, befeathered sachem, spell-chanting shaman, New Age psycho-babbler,
tree-worshiping pantheist, witch, warlock, druid, animist, or Marxian
spiritualist but not those terrible, monotheistic creeds. Mustn't tolerate
any of those "dogmatic," "absolutist" faiths; of that the "tolerant"
globalists are dogmatically, absolutely certain.
Another prominent "theologian" of the UN's "global ethic" is Dr.
Muller (whom we introduced in our Prologue). A former UN Assistant
Secretary-General, Dr. Muller served 38 years as a United Nations "civil
servant," and following his retirement in 1985 has served as chancellor
of the UN's University for Peace in Costa Rica. He is the author of the
World Core Curriculum now in use in schools worldwide.
In his influential
book New Genesis: Shaping a Global Spirituality, Muller opines:
came back to earth, his first visit would be to the United Nations to see if
his dream of human oneness and brotherhood had come true. He would be happy
to see representatives of all nations."41
We remind you, dear reader, that in the contorted theosophical sophistry of
Muller and company, "Christ" is not Jesus Christ but Lucifer. According to
Muller, the UN's wondrous endeavors are leading us on a "grand journey of
humanity towards oneness, convergence and unprecedented happiness."
"We were approaching Teilhard's point of convergence, Wells' last
chapter of The Outline of History ... Sri Chinmoy's world oneness ... the
apotheosis [deification] of human life on earth."42
The "Teilhard" Muller refers to is Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
-the renegade Jesuit priest, theologian-philosopher, and paleontologist who
perpetrated the great "Piltdown Man" evolutionist hoax. "Wells" is, of
course, H.G. Wells, whom we introduced above. Sri Chinmoy is the one-world,
New Age guru who runs the UN's Meditation Room and regularly leads the
Chinmoy has offered his prophecy regarding the UN's divine
The United Nations is the chosen instrument of God; to be a chosen
instrument means to be a divine messenger carrying the banner of God's inner
vision and outer manifestation. One day, the world will ... treasure and
cherish the soul of the United Nations as its very own with pride, for this
soul is all-loving, all-nourishing, and all-fulfilling.43
"Spiritual Leaders" for the New Millennium It was Master Chinmoy,
appropriately, who presented the UN's U Thant Peace Award to Maurice Strong,
the globe-trotting billionaire best known for his role as Secretary-General
of the 1992 UN Earth Summit in Brazil.44 Strong was receiving the honor,
said Chinmoy, for "his lifelong commitment to the soaring ideals of the
The award was named for U Thant, the Burmese Marxist who served as the UN's
third Secretary-General and who, in 1970, brazenly declared:
"Lenin was a
man with a mind of great clarity and incisiveness."45
Maurice Strong, who
apparently shares Lenin's "great clarity and incisiveness," has been a
driving force in bringing the most extreme enviro-Leninism and far-out
reli-gio-Leninism into the social, political, economic, religious
Other vaunted "spiritual leaders" who are guiding humanity into the
developing "global ethic" of the new millennium include:
Mohammed Ramadan, president of the UN's Society for Enlightenment and
Transformation, which has offices in the basement of the UN building where
every conceivable variety
of "spiritual sage" witch doctors, mystics, "channelers" UFO enthusiasts,
reincarnated Masters contribute their cosmic energies to the sacred
mission of the UN.
Apostate theologian Matthew Fox, whose radical New Age spirituality embraces
Wicca, homosexuality, abortion, and one-world socialism. An apostle of the
Gaia (Earth Goddess) Gospel, Fox says, "I believe the appropriate symbol of
the Cosmic Christ... is that of Jesus as Mother Earth crucified yet rising
daily... [T]he symbol of which I speak holds the capacity to launch a global
spirituality of untold dimensions appropriate for the third millennium."
Gerald Barney, founder and executive director of the Millennium Institute
and a co-chair of the 1993 Parliament of World Religions. In his keynote
address at that summit, he said that "an internationally famous, highly
influential author on sustainable development told me bluntly, 'Religion
must die. It is the fundamental cause of virtually all social, economic, and
ecological problems and much of the violence in the world.'"47
alternative to the destruction of religion, Barney asserted, is the
"reinterpretation and even rejection of ancient traditions and assumptions"
and the creation of a "'sustainable' faith tradition on earth...."48 "Every
person," Barney said, "must learn to think like Earth, to act like Earth, to
be Earth."49 Barney was the lead author of the enviro-Leninist Global 2000
report for the Carter administration and was a national program director for
the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.
William Irwin Thompson, founder of the (Luciferian) Lindisfarne Association.
"We have now a new spirituality, what has been called the New Age movement,"
Thompson says. "This is now beginning to influence concepts of politics and
community in ecology.... This is the Gaia [Mother Earth] politique ...
Mikhail Gorbachev, former Soviet dictator, butcher of Afghanistan, and
chairman of the Gorbachev Foundation and Green Cross International. In a Los
Angeles Times interview of May 8, 1997, Gorbachev insisted humanity must
embrace "a new environmental legal code rooted in an Earth Charter ... a
kind of Ten Commandments, a 'Sermon on the Mount,' that provides a guide for
human behavior toward the environment in the next century and beyond."
most important thing," he said, "is the shaping of a new value system" from
a "new synthesis" of "democratic, Christian, and Buddhist values ... which
affirm such moral principles as social responsibility and the sense of
oneness with nature and with each other."51
Gorbachev's week-long State of
the World Forum 2000 extravaganza in New York City was the bridging event
between the Peace Summit and the Millennium Summit, with many of the heads
of state, ambassadors, UN officials, and spiritual leaders from both events
also participating in the Gorbachev Forum.
Earth Charter Subversion and Perversion
Comrade Gorbachev knows something
about the Earth Charter, since he helped compose it. It was his good friend,
Maurice Strong, as chief of the Earth Summit, who commissioned him to take
up the important task. While much of the Charter sounds like harmless
eco-babble, or even sensible earth stewardship that is compatible with
Christian theology, it is larded with deceptive code words and traps aimed
at destroying Judeo-Christian moral values and the non-socialist
Article 12 (a) of the Earth Charter commits
signatory governments to:
Eliminate discrimination in all its forms,
such as that based on race, color, sex, sexual orientation, religion,
language, and national, ethnic or social origin.52
This is very clearly aimed at expanding the socialist state into all spheres
of life and especially to undermine the legal codes of nations based upon
the moral precepts of the monotheistic religions, all of which proscribe
homosexuality. The Charter, like the many "human rights" conventions it
promotes, seeks to give homosexual activists a pretext to claim legal
footing to challenge in the courts and legislatures national, state, and
local laws against sexual perversion.
This is already happening. The first case we are aware of was launched in
1992 when Nick Toonen, a homosexual rights activist in Australia, asked the
UN Human Rights Committee to investigate the state of Tasmania's
anti-homosexuality statute. The UN committee determined that Toonen could be
classified as a "victim."53
Similarly, here in the United States, militant sodomites have charged that
they are "victims" of human rights violations because of our laws against
homosexual practices and have taken their cause to the United Nations. If we
allow current trends to continue, we most certainly will see a federal court
in the near future rule that U.S. state laws concerning sodomy must be
struck down to comply with UN "human rights" law.
Christian-Marxist "Unity*' Following the conclusion of the State of the
World Forum 2000 (September 4th-10th) in New York, Mr. Gorbachev was off on
a multi-week evangelistic crusade that took him to some surprising venues.
He was received with apparent enthusiasm at churches in Florida and
Then it was off to Salt Lake City, where Gorby addressed Franklin Covey's
International Symposium at the Salt Palace.*
Thanks to a celebrity status that has been bestowed on him by the Insiders,
Gorbachev is received like a rock star by politicians, journalists, business
and religious leaders, educators, and entertainers worldwide. He is,
reportedly, the highest-paid name for hire in the world, commanding $100,000
for a half-hour talk. Gunter Kunkel, president of the Phoenix Club in
Anaheim, California, felt his group had gotten a "bargain" because they only
had to pay $75,000 for 50 minutes of the Gorbachev wisdom and charm. "Can
you think of anybody bigger?" the awestruck Kunkel asked the Los Angeles
Times' Mike Anton. "It will probably be the greatest night we have seen
here."58 Prior to the Millennium Summit, Gorbachev scored one of his biggest
coups to date, when, on June 27, 2000, he was given a place of honor between
Cardinals Sodano and Silvestrini at a Vatican press conference in Rome.59
At a Salt Lake City press
conference, the Nobel Prize winner lamented to the assembled media corps
that "we do not have a new world order, the kind of new world order that we
Later, in California, he shared a stage with William "Star Trek" Shatner,
before beaming his "global ethic" sermonette to a global television audience
from the Reverend Robert Schuller's famous Crystal Cathedral. "I know that
he calls himself an atheist," Rev. Schuller said, but Schuller believed,
God had used Gorbachev "in a mighty way."
And he hoped that one day the
former Communist dictator would become "a man of faith."55
We join Rev. Schuller in that hope, as we hope that all atheists will become
"men of faith" as that term has been understood traditionally by
believers. But, in the meantime, is there any justification for Christians
to turn over their pulpits to atheists to enemies of God like Gorbachev?
Comrade Gorbachev, after all, is a "man of faith": He believes in the
gospels of Marx and Lenin.
As we have already noted, Gorbachev declared in
"I am a Communist, a convinced Communist. For some that may be a
fantasy. But for me it is the main goal."56
By both word and act, Gorbachev
has confirmed many times since then his continued adherence to his
To anyone familiar with Communist dialectical materialism as it concerns
religion, Gorbachev's fixation with religion over the past decade makes
perfect sense. He is one of the leading global activists working to
transform Christianity, to unite it with Marxism! As a master dialectician,
he is expert in the use of words as weapons, particularly in using words
that will appeal to and disarm Christians.
According to one of Gorbachev's
old friends, Natasha Rimashevskaya, he had one phrase he loved to say:
to this question, one must approach it dialectically.' That meant he wanted
to entertain a thesis and its contradiction at the same time." 57
Gorbachev's admiring biographer, Gail Sheehy, tells us:
"Lenin is in his
blood, say Gorbachev's friends. And Lenin's doctrine of 'two steps forward,
one step back' or complete tactical flexibility appealed particularly
strongly to him." 60
Gorbachev is following precisely the Leninist
dialectical line that was spelled out by Li Wei Han of the Central Committee
of the Chinese Communist Party in 1959, in instructions sent to Fidel
Castro's new Communist regime.
According to Comrade Li:
The line of action to follow against the
Church is to instruct, to educate, to persuade, to convince, and,
gradually, to awaken and fully develop the political conscience of
Catholics by getting them to take part in study circles and political
activities. By means of these activities, we must undertake the
dialectical struggle within religion. Gradually, we will replace the
religious element with the Marxist element.61
Have the Communists forgotten or abandoned this lesson? They have never been
more active or aggressive in promoting it! In fact, Comrade Li's 1959
instructions have been reprinted in books currently available in Communist
More importantly, it is a simple matter to observe them in
action. These same instructions form the basis of the "Liberation Theology"
revolution that was launched from Cuba into Latin America and North America
in the 1960s and is operating throughout the world today. These instructions
form the basis of the Soviet push (under Gorbachev) for development of the
new "global spirituality."
While Christian leaders naively praise the new "openness" to religion in
Communist countries, Leninists like Gorbachev know this is only a temporary,
tactical "one step back." There is no question that the Leninists with the
aid of foolish Christians, as well as agents posing as Christians are
"[replacing] the religious element with the Marxist element."
Thus we have
seen a host of books and articles promoting the diabolic dialectic theme of
One example of this, Christian-Marxist Unity: A Miraculous, Explosive Prescription, the influential text by
Raimundo Garcia Franco, tells us:
"Yes, Christian faith and Marxism-Leninism
do share almost complete overlapping of common objectives in the building of
socialism. We can-pot look backward, since the path ahead is that of
creative transformation to communism and to the Kingdom of God on this
This is the same subversive dialectic that permeates Gorbachev's annual
State of the World Forums63 as well as all of the UN's "spiritual"
confabulations. When the leaders of these events aren't directly "replacing
the religious element with the Marxist element," they are fast at work
replacing the Christian element with various pagan and New Age elements,
which they recognize as far more flexible and conducive to their Marxist
one-world schemes than what they scornfully denounce as "dogmatic," "rigid,"
Christianity's Epitaph? Where is this leading? It is worthwhile noting what
the militant paganists themselves say about this. In the Fall 1995 issue of
the occult journal Gnosis we find a very sobering report entitled "State of
the Hidden Arts: An Overview of Esotericism Today," which offers analyses by
a variety of pagan activists.64
Christopher Bamford, head of Lindisfarne
Press, exults that the last 10 years,
"have seen a fundamental revision in
our understanding of Christianity, not in essence, but in application....
[A] dead monolith has been demolished, and in its place we can sense the
presence of a living being...."65
The creation of a "living" Christianity,
according to Bamford, reflects the growing influence in "mainstream"
Christianity of such thinkers as theosophist Rudolf Steiner,
occultist/psychologist Carl Jung, and Pierre Teilhard de Chardin.
Gnosis also trumpeted the exultant reports of Diane Conn Darling regarding
the rise of neo-paganism, which is busy "building interfaith relations with
mainstream religious groups."
One major achievement in this effort, the
not-so-darling Ms. Darling reported, occurred when,
"several major Neopagan
groups were represented at the 1993 World Parliament of Religions in
Chicago. Our presentations were heavily attended, including a beautiful Full
Moon Circle celebrated in a nearby park.... Pagan priestess Deborah Light
and the Fellowship of Isis (the world's largest Pagan organization) are
signatories on our behalf to the Declaration of [a] Global Ethic...."66
Darling glowingly remarked that "polytheism is nearly universal in neopaganism." As is pantheism. According to Ms. Darling:
"Neopagans see the
God/dess in all things: in each other, in persons following different paths,
in animals, plants, planets, rivers, rocks, and in ourselves.... The
Neopagan mythos gives rise to an ethos grounded in the Earth. Indeed, for a
great many Neopagans, the Great Goddess is the living Earth herself."67
These denizens of darkness, when speaking amongst themselves, are jubilant
because they are positive that they are riding a cosmic neopagan wave that
will soon overwhelm what they see as a crumbling, dying Christianity.
Darkness Clothed in Light Having closely followed the UN for more than two
decades as a journalist and researcher, and having attended UN Summits from
Rio to San Francisco to Rome to New York, it is clear to this writer that
the neo-pagan one-worlders at the UN Tower of Babel are accelerating the
tempo of their program of spiritual subversion, even as they become more
swollen with arrogance. The Rio Earth Summit was a watershed event, very
powerfully and publicly wedding the UN to the New Age, one-world, neo-pagan
In his opening address to the UNCED (Earth Summit) plenary session, Maurice
Strong directed the world's attention to the Declaration of the Sacred Earth
Gathering, which was part of the pre-Summit ceremonies.
"[T]he changes in
behavior and direction called for here," said Strong, "must be rooted in our
deepest spiritual, moral and ethical values."68
According to the
declaration, the ecological crisis,
"transcends all national, religious,
cultural, social, political, and economic boundaries.... The responsibility
of each human being today is to choose between the force of darkness and the
force of light. We must therefore transform our attitudes and values, and
adopt a renewed respect for the superior law of Divine Nature." 69
However, in the twisted theosophic theology of Maurice Strong, Robert
Muller, Sri Chinmoy, and other occultists who dominate the United Nations,
"light" is darkness and "darkness" is light. Their "light" comes not from
Jesus Christ ("I am the Light of the world," John 8:12), but from Lucifer,
"the Light bearer." The Earth Summit was a non-stop orgy of pagan,
Gaia-worshiping ceremonies, rituals, sermons, eulogies, declarations,
manifestos, and celebrations. It not only marked the introduction of the
radical NGO legions as an emerging superpower, but brought the occult nature
of the UN out in the open.
Not entirely into the open, however. The controlled U.S. media never gave
the American public at large an accurate view of this clamorous chorus. Most
frequently, the media presented them as noble, if sometimes eccentric,
idealists. The viewing and reading public had no way of knowing the extent
and depth of the specifically and rabidly anti-American, anti-Christian
animus of the vast majority of the official delegates and NGO radicals.
were they made aware of the overtly pagan and communistic emphasis of the
entire Earth Summit program and the conventions, declarations, and treaties
that came out of it.
American television viewers did not see the ubiquitous Communist flags,
posters, and graffiti that festooned the NGO's Global Forum at Rio's
Flamengo Park. Nor did they see the even more plentiful pagan, occult, and
Wicca symbols, exhibits, seminars, and programs that could not be avoided at
the Summit. They did not see the incredibly gross homosexual pornography
display that was allowed to daily assault the eyes of thousands of Brazilian
families who visited Flamengo Park. This Ford Foundationfunded70 exhibit of
life-size photographs would have been illegal in most cities in America, but
it was a welcome addition at the UN celebration.
Quite the opposite of the image of peace, brotherhood, and tolerance
presented by the U.S. media, the Earth Summiteers were almost universally
venomous, foul, blasphemous, and profane in their constant verbal attacks on
the United States, the middle class, capitalism, technology, Christianity,
and Christian leaders viciously attacking Dr. James Dobson, Rev. Jerry Falwell, and most especially Pope John Paul II.
When Fidel Castro arrived at
the Summit, however, the NGOs and official delegates alike erupted in
Since Rio, the NGOs have become more emboldened, aggressive, sophisticated,
professionally organized, and lavishly funded. But it hasn't tempered their
fury and ranting; in fact, they have gotten worse.
Having sat amongst the
NGO leaders and cadres in their strategy sessions, and having interviewed,
dined with, and mingled with top UN officials and delegates at UN venues
around the world, I cannot help but arrive at the conclusion that these
"peace people," these "civil servants" and self-appointed representatives of
"global civil society," are the most pathetic and concentrated collection of
pompous, privileged, pampered, hateful, tyrannical, hypocritical, morally
revolting specimens of humanity one is likely ever to encounter.
Even more outrageous than the behavior of these miscreants, however, are the
arguments of elected American officials that we must continue participating
in and supporting this dangerous charade. The UN is elevating, legitimizing,
and popularizing all of the demonic influences that are pushing our
civilization into the dark abyss.
The Pratt House one-worlders and their
Communist allies have energetically embraced the H. G. Wells prescription
for sustaining their desired society. In their vision, the human community
must be suitably subservient to the UN. Religions advocating loyalty to a
higher authority must give way to a "new" mandated orthodoxy demanding that
all worship the one-world socialist state. In the emerging new world order,
the UN superstate will tolerate no other god before it.
The average American has become so inured to the neo-pagan influences that
are saturating our culture that he is apt to simply shrug his shoulders at each new offense, and figure there is nothing
that can be done. It's all just part of our inevitable, downward moral
spiral, he sadly reasons. But there is something that can be done about
this. The American taxpayers and voters have it within their power to change
We will explain that in detail in our final chapter.
