ENVIRONMENTALISM THE RELIGION

[SCROLL TO BOTTOM, STUFF ON POPE FRANCIS AND HIS, TOME, CONFUSING U.N. ADDRESS ON ECOLOGY.]

OUR CHORE

How does the point of this post color up our Guardian Angel? We’ll find it: the way he clinches the eye of the viewer, the brilliant beckoning hue of his wings, the authority of his grip on his commander’s sword. We’ll find it.

* * *

Environmentalism is one of the Three-Headed God of Post-Modernism. The other two: Multi-Culturalism & Gender/Sexual Continuum (Queer) Theory

* * *

Environmentalism the Religion has its own Sacred Scripture, Priesthood, Rituals & Litanies, Sacraments & Sacramentals, Infallible Dogmas, Catechism, Heresy-Hunters, Inquisitions & Excommunications, Sacred Space, & Stories, Idols-Makers, Tithe Enforcers, & Mission Work

Environmentalism the Religion is (as is the wont of the Three-Headed Post-Modernist God) is the forever enemy of true religion (in short, Jews, Christians, Greeks & Latins).

Environmentalism the Religion has declared a War of Religion against Reason, Heart, & Human Flourishing; against every Man, every Woman & Unborn Babe.

* * *

THE RIGHTEOUS KNIGHTS OF HETCH-HETCHY’S  O’ SHAUGHNESSY DAM GO OFF TO WAR (Like Christian Soldiers) AGAINST THE THEOCRATIC OVERLORDS OF ENVIRONMENTALISM THE RELIGION.

* * *

Environmentalism the Religion crashes down, crushes the liberty and labors of all Men:  crashes and crushes with its suffocating dogmas, the bondage of its rites and the theft of its blackened roped off holy places; its pack of inquisition wolves obsessively on the hunt for heresy and apostates; howling orders to its brigade of fagot gatherers to haul in the wood for the pyres of shame and excommunication.

Environmentalism the Religion unfurls its jihad, scorched earth banner, “It’s a Consensus; All the Experts Say”: the Great Lie forged in the Satanic Mills of its captive media, academia, foundations, and the bureaucratized state.

Christian Soldiers and Righteous Knights, armor up with the sword of truth, the shield of courage – the fight to save the Damn Dam of Hetch-Hetchy is upon us.

NOTES ON AN IDOL

Maureen Mullarkey (First Things)

  Growing mightily all the while is the cult of environmentalism, a burgeoning state religion summarized in the catechism of sustainable development. It is the ascendant idol of our time, as magnetic—and totalizing—as the Leninist-Stalinist doctrines were to Milosz’ contemporaries….. There is little need to wait for the climate encyclical to know which way this trolley is headed. On its website, the Pontifical Academy of Sciences announces an April 28th conference: Protect the Earth, Dignify Humanity: the Moral Dimensions of Climate Change and Sustainable Humanity.

The Apocalyptic Nature of Environmentalism

David Byrne (Crisis)

Every few years a Christian preacher predicts imminent Armageddon, gains some followers and is thrust into the national headlines. Most recently, Harold Camping, the iterant Oakland preacher, announced the world would end on May 22, 2011. Camping prophesized this will be accompanied by massive earthquakes, chaos, death and destruction, just as described in the Book of Revelation. A new heaven

IS POPE FRANCIS GOING ALL GREEN?

IF SO, SO SAD

[Defend Him, Guardian Angel of Hetch-Hetchy. Snatch Him from the Smothering, Strangling Green Crevice Chasm Pit.]

(via American Thinker)
Pray God, let’s hope not!
Of course, the Pope is no enthusiast of the likes of Che.  (Pope Francis should know the ends & outs of the man, they being both Argentinians.)  Yet, the pope donning such a shirt illustrates the foolishness – and danger – of going all hog-wild for the Climate Change Totalitarians.

WHAT IS THE APPEAL IN LOOKING LIKE A BRANCH OF THE UN?

 Guy Noir – Private Eye,

 [O]ur underground correspondent we keep on retainer in an Atlantic seaboard city that knows how to keep its secrets, also seemed quite excercized about this, as he communicated recently:

Much better to sound like a government official than a Pope, even if we insist we are no NGO. When there is a “Speaker’s Line Up” and an “official presentation,” you realize we have ceased to be dealing with religion and are instead competing with government and celebrity machines. How long before we see The EarthKeeper’s Bible or Spiritual Disciplines for the Environmentally-Aware…?

Here were are: Augustinus, “For Pope’s Environment Encyclical, an unusual line-up of presenters for official Vatican press conference, including climate change radical” (Rorate Caeli, June 10, 2015):

he Vatican has just revealed in today’s Bollettino the line-up of speakers for the official presentation of the “Environment Encyclical”, Laudato Si, on June 18 at the New Synod Hall.

The most interesting is probably Prof. John Schellnhuber, Founding Director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, proponent of a “zero-carbon world,” known for his “aggressive stance on climate policy,” and for having famously declared in 2009 that the “carrying capacity” of the Earth is less than one billion people! He is also known, according to Augustinus, for his “intense advocacy of rapid de-industrialization in order to stave off global warming.” You’ve really got to read the quotes to believe this guy’s for real. And, last but not least, he is an advocate of a real form of “World Government,” something advanced also in the cause of climate control. One has to wonder why the Vatican selected him to be the sole layman and environmental “expert” to present on the occasion of the debut of the Pope’s new encyclical. Really.

THE ENGLISH PUBLISHER OF THIS  DOCUMENT MAY BE CALLING US TO BE SENTIMENTAL & SENTIMENTALIST – IN A CATHOLIC WAY.  Don’t sirs. Even the much lauded R. Guardini (a reading of the document through his mind) needs to factor in the observations of thew articles above.  What Francis is doing is a radical deconstruction of the original (Jewish) reading of Genesis; he is committing a supersuccessionist reading of the story (& mandate) of Creation.

[Yet, thank God, they did publish Fr. James Schall delicious piece posted above! Give them that.]

GETTING ALL PETERED OUT ON POPE FRANCIS

“Petered Out”?

Our underground correspondent we keep on retainer, Guy Noir – Private Eye, caught me completely by surprise this evening by walking right through my door at 6:37pm, unannounced and visibly agitated, and handing me a print-out of an internet article that quite apparently had him all riled up.

“This is harsh, no doubt,” he said, chewing on a cigar stub. (Since when did Noir take up cigar smoking?) “But I have to admit that Ann Coulter-like broadsides aside, it raises a point that deserves comment,” he added, a gravelly growl in his voice. [Open link above. Read the rest. Insightful.]

THINK POPE FRANCIS IS SIMPLY WRONGHEADED (and wrongly tutored) ON THIS CLIMATE STUFF – AND HIS TAKE ON ECONOMICS.  YET, VERY HAPPY TO TAKE ON THOSE WHO ARE MISREADING HIS REACTION TO THIS BOLIVIA INCIDENT.

This from Walid Shoebat. Much admire the man . Wish every stool in every bar in the County & City of San Francisco was occupied by men like him. Still, some of you won’t like the source. That’s tough. Take you on, too!

The Communist President Of Bolivia Offers A Blasphemous Idol To Pope Francis Showing Jesus On The Communist Symbol Of The Hammer And Sickle. Pope Frances Rejects It And Says: “This Is Not Right!”

By Walid Shoebat

Bolivian president Evo Morales presented pontiff with crucifix depicting Jesus nailed to hammer and sickle, which pope returned after a brief examination saying “this is not right”. So many people accuse  him of being a communist. But this is just another proof that he is not a communist.

Pope Francis Bolivia

The response of the pope after being handed the wooden crucifix during a formal ceremony, he examined it for a few seconds before returning it to a Bolivian presidential aide expressed irritation, muttering the words “eso no está bien” (“this is not right”)

While many try to make a controversy that the Pope accepted the gift, it is obvious that the Pope said “eso no está bien” (“this is not right”) TWICE at 00:14 and 00:22. Regardless of what Vatican commentators stated or who said what, the video is clear that the Pope returned the improper gift stating that it was “improper”. Even the Pope looking disturbed was obvious and his words were clear to anyone who understands Spanish.

Pope Francis is presented with a gift of a crucifix carved into a wooden hammer and sickle, the Communist symbol uniting labor and peasants, by Bolivian President Evo Morales in La Paz, Bolivia, Wednesday, July 8, 2015. Apart from the carved hammer and sickle, Morales gave Francis another politically loaded gift, a copy of "The Book of the Sea," which is about the loss of Bolivia's access to the sea during the War of the Pacific with Chile in 1879-83. Morales said things have changed with this pope and the Bolivian people are greeting Francis as someone who is "helping in the liberation of our people." (L'Osservatore Romano/Pool Photo via AP)

The Catholic Church has been the greatest enemy against Communism. When the communists took over Mexico, the Catholics with both faith and arms in the Cristero War; when the atheist communists were slaughtering tens of thousands of Christians in Spain, the Pope declared a crusade that was led by Franco; in the communist regime in Romania, the Catholics were slaughtered and horrifically tortured because they defied communism. There are communists in the Catholic Church, but the Church will never embrace communism.

3 views of Pope Francis after the South America trip

I bring to your attention three interesting analysis pieces about Pope Francis following his trip to South America.

AND, HERE’S THIS FROM RORATE CAELI

[Wherein Lays the Truth of the Matter?]

Socci: COCA AND “HAMMER AND SICKLE”: FRANCIS’ TRIP

For the record: Pope Francis personally clarifies that he was not offended by Hammer-and-Sickle “crucifix”, explicitly acknowledges the Marxism of its Jesuit originator — and praises him.

NOW THIS. WHAT ARE WE TO THINK?

The Pope and the Hammer and Sickle

Could another gift more accurately represent the pope’s value system than Christ crucified on the symbol of communism?

WISE WORDS FROM FR. “Z”

Where is the liberal ‘c’atholic anger at insult to the Pope and the Church?

dukesofhazzard1Where is the liberal catholic anger and frustration at the insulting gesture of the hammer and sickle “crucifix” offered to Pope Francis and the Catholic Church by Bolivian President Evo Morales? Look at the liberal catholic sites… do you see any commentary?

Let’s play this out.

How would the libs react were someone to give a Confederate Battle Flag to the Pope during his visit to these United States?

What would Amerika and Fishwrap say if the Pope, handed the flag, smiled and nodded and mummured quiet comments?

Would they say that it isn’t about “ideology“?   “No, no!”, they’d explain,  “It’s a symbol of… rights of states and .. and … tradition!”

During papal visits, Popes are presented with all sorts of things. Sometimes the junk, such as paintings, winds up on the walls of Vatican offices, as it did in ours.

Let’s imagine that the Pope were to be presented with a painting of Our Lord crucified during the burning of Atlanta. Instead of Our Lady and St. John by the Cross, you see Gen. Lee and Jefferson Davis. Above the Lord’s head, in place of INRI, DIXIE.

Would there be any official statement that that wasn’t about ideology?

Would there be any liberal reaction?

But, my bad.  I keep forgetting that Roe v. Wade, Doe v. Bolton, Dredd Scott v. Sanford  – denying personhood to human beings – were liberal non-ideological projects too.
