First, I recommend that you read his post:
BELIEF In Sustainability: Sneakily Violating Our Constitution
Pascal is calling for a lawsuit against the government for violation of the First Amendment through the aberrant use of forcing "belief in sustainability" upon the American people.
sus·tain·a·bil·i·ty/səˌsteɪnəˈbɪlɪti/ Show Spelled [suh-stey-nuh-bil-i-tee] Show IPA
the ability to be sustained, supported, upheld, or confirmed.2.
Environmental Science. the quality of not being harmful to the environment or depleting natural resources, and thereby supporting long-term ecological balance: The committee is developing sustainability standards for products that use energy.
I have read and heard that several groups (e.g. ACLJ, various TEA Party groups etc.) which were targeted through blatant violations of governmental power by the IRS have already filed lawsuits.
I agree with Pascal that the overreach of power being used by the current government includes misusing the sustainability mantra. However, it appears to be an afterthought being revisited by the ObaMARXIST BADministration now to either try and attempt to get his base of liberal loons back, and/or to draw attention away from all of the current scandals. Obammy worries more about his so-called "approval rating" (which dropped 8 points recently) than about anything else. Such a narcissistic attitude is really sad and truly dangerous for our nation. But the handlers of this little puppet must also be worried at this point and will make Zero do anything to draw attention away from it all.
My reply to Pascal's post:
Pascal, I read your essay today and you make several excellent points!
You wrote, "belief in Sustainability is widely held in American secular government."
So true! When men fancy themselves as their own kind of little "gods," they think that they can convince us civilian "plebes" that man made global warming is real and that they need to do something drastic about it. I will take Lord Monckton's word for it (and a local weather meteorologist named John Coleman) who have debunked the man made global warming myth before I would ever believe the fools in Washington D.C. who want to use it as an excuse to spend more of the taxpayers' money.
The Bible tells us that the closer we get to the end times, the more storms, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes - you know - the "natural disasters" will occur. But then we learn of the HAARP weapon unscrupulously used by men in power which changes the weather in certain areas (sometimes quite drastically and for purposes unknown to some). But to those paying attention we know that it is being done for evil reasons.
Your title, BELIEF In Sustainability: Sneakily Violating Our Constitution is also true.
Their "green" religion is being used as an excuse to do so.
You also wrote:
"If you see as I see that secular forces are determined to finally obliterate all Judeo-Christian religions (which is the competition of the nascent state religion, or possibly with Sharia where there might be special set-aside agreements at least temporarily) by various and sundry means, by hook or by crook... "
Of course the radical liberal=socialist=communist=tyrannical government we now have is doing this...right out in the open! But only those who have eyes to see and ears to hear realize what is happening. And, it is occurring at such an alarming rate it makes our heads spin in disbelief that they are getting away with so much criminality!
I could spend hours on this topic! But I will site one thing that I saw (and was originally confused about) from years ago that shows the unholy alliance of radical liberalism and radical Islamism; as well as another more recent event that the media propaganda tried to pull off as "truth."
1. My original confusion over a sign that I saw during an anti-Israel rally back in 2005 held in San Fransicko [sic purposely] has now been solved. While I was trying to make sense of that sign which reads: Thank you S.F. Liberals...You Die Last", (photo at link). Questions and discussion regarding the absurdity of the controversy regarding the building of the "Ground Zero mosque" were brought up in that 2010 post. No need to read through the entire post (unless you want to). But you can see my confusion regarding the sign when I originally wrote (back in 2005):
"Notice what the man holding the sign is wearing. Can you tell what image is on the other man's red t-shirt? What are your thoughts about such a blatant display? Comments?"
The second post within that thread includes comments questioning Obama's birth certificate (which has since been proven to be a forgery, I might add, but no judge will touch the subject). There is discussion about Obama's fanatical anti-American pro-Marxist ideology, and his pro-Islamist trend at play within his entire BADministration.
At first glance, one might think radical Islamism and communism cannot work together. However, what is currently happening in Syria (with the Russians siding with Assad and Obummer plus clueless Senators like McCain and Graham wanting to arm the rebels (a.k.a. al-Qaida!!!) is causing a huge rife between Putin and Obammy. Ozero looked so weak and it has been reported that Putin verbally wiped up the floor with him. How embarrassing...
Granted, Putin's support for Assad goes way back because Assad's tyranny is more secular in nature. Whereas Obama and his ilk want to support the "rebels" with arms and they are more "devout" (a.k.a. terrorists) Muslims (the Brotherhood who are Shia - I think?) and want to inflict Sharia law there.
The Syrian threat, along with the usual Iranian threat all makes for a hot and dangerous stew of trouble in the Middle East; threatening Israel most of all.
All of these developments are not new for those Christians who read, study, and comprehend Bible prophecy.
In a previous post entitled We Are Witnessing Biblical Prophecy which was written back in 2005, the hotbed of hatred towards Israel has now ratcheted up to an extreme.
Today, we are continually witnessing Biblical prophecy happening right before our very eyes![Go to this link and read it all! The Ezekiel prophecies are astounding!]
As astounding as it was, the prophecies surrounding the rebirth of Israel did not stop with the declaration of Israel's independence in 1948.
Three thousand years ago God inspired King David to predict that the reborn nation of Israel would be immediately surrounded by enemies, including the Arab nations of Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon and Syria.
"For lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. They have taken craftly counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee: The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Hoab; and the Hagarenes; Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre; Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah" (Psalm 83:2-8).
In this incredible prophecy, David described the modern states of the Middle East by naming the ancient nations that have now joined with the Palestinians in their attempt to destroy the Jewish state in the last days.
This ancient prophetic list of nations is fascinating, as it enumerates virtually every one of the nations in the Arab confederacy that oppose Israel's existence today:
Edom.........from Esau, brother of Jacob (Jordan)
Ismaelites...descended from Ishmael, son of Hagar (Arabs)
Moab.........son of Lot, (Jordan, east of Dead Sea)
Hagarenes....descended from one of the 12 sons of Hagar
Gebal........ancient Byblus, (north of today's Beirut)
Ammon........son of Lot, (capital of Jordan)
Amalek.......descended from Esau (southern Jordan)
Philistines..from Ham, (throughout Palestine, Syria)
Tyre.........a Phoenician city (Lebanon)
Assur........founded Assyria; (Iraq - Iran)
Children of Lot, Moab, and Ammon, (Jordan)
Ezekiel 35:1-5, 10 describes the coming judgment of God against these Arab nations, including Edom (Mount Seir) in Jordan because of their centuries-old hatred of the Jews.
This leads us to my second point of discussion.
2. As Joel Rosenberg points out today in his: Analysis: Is Rouhani a Twelver”? Iran’s President-elect just thanked the Mahdi for his victory. once again our media of mass deception lied to us.
Despite the Western media’s insistence that Iran’s President-Elect, Hassan Rouhani, is a “moderate” and a “reformist,” the evidence is clear: Rouhani is actually a high-ranking Radical Shia cleric who fundamentally agrees with the terrorist and repressive policies of the Ayatollah Khamenei and has been faithful in supporting such policies. Rouhani’s son reportedly even committed suicide because of the shame he felt that Rouhani was so supportive of Khamenei’s evil ways. The central question I have been curious about since the rigged election is whether Rouhani shares the Supreme Leader’s eschatology. Namely, is Rouhani a “Twelver”? Does he believe as Khamenei does that the End of Days has come, and that the Twelfth Imam (or Mahdi) is going to appear at any moment to destroy the infidels and establish a global Islamic caliphate, and that Iran’s regime can and must hasten the arrival of their so-called messiah by annihilating America (which they consider the “Great Satan”) and Israel (which they consider the “Little Satan”)?
It may appear that I have gone off of the subject matter, so please forgive me. However, I think that the current evil stew of ideologies - including the use of "sustainability" in order to destroy our Constitution and the rights it contains for Americans that Pascal discusses; plus the obvious communist leanings of this BADministration, and last but not least, the obvious radical Islamist sympathizing and collusion all creates a mish-mash of hate against America and Israel.
All three evils explain why the ObaMARXIST BADministration is doing all that it can to destroy our Constitution and America as we know it. The scandals involving the attack on the Bill of Rights may currently be seen as unimportant to those individuals and groups who were not targeted. However, how do they know that the same thing won't happen to them in the future? The suppression of all Conservative groups (that want to defend free speech rights, freedom of association, the right to bear arms, the right not to be subjected to illegal search and seizure and even more importantly, our freedom of religion (while encouraging the Judeo-Christian morals and values that the Founders used as a basis for our laws in America) is only the beginning of the tyranny to come against all American. What's worse is that they are hell-bent on using all the power of this current big, bloated, misguided government to do so.
What is the purpose of it all? CONTROL
What is the end-game? DESTRUCTION
However, if we look more closely at the situation, we find that evil not only attempts to destroy all that is good, evil destroys itself too!
Let's go back to the meaning of that sign that was spotted in an anti-Israel rally in San Francisco in 2005: Thank you S.F. Liberals...You Die Last".
History has taught us that evil regimes often collude, and then end up trying to destroy each other. One example is when Nazi Germany colluded with the Communists of the Soviet Union, then split and went on to kill and destroy each other later on in the war.
Because sinful people do not abide by God's Word and often repeat the same mistakes from history, the same will ultimately happen between the unholy alliance of radical Islamism and communism of our current day and age.
Because in the end, only one of these two evil ideologies will want complete control.
What it all amounts to is CONTROL.
And control in the hands of evil people in power is used to further the father-of-lies plans to steal, kill and destroy.
“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. - Jesus Christ
Isa 44:6 “Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel, And his Redeemer, the LORD of hosts: ‘I am the First and I am the Last; Besides Me there is no God.
Isa 48:12 “Listen to Me, O Jacob, And Israel, My called: I am He, I am the First, I am also the Last.
Rev 1:17 And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me,[fn] “Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last.
Rev 1:18 “I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.
Rev 1:19 “Write[fn] the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which will take place after this.
With all of the turmoil going on in the world, Christians still have the peace that surpasses all understanding because Jesus and His own (all who believe in Him and belong to Him in faith) win in the end:
