The zealots of religious inclusiveness want to give their movement the force of law. And their tactic is working. Do what Gorbachev suggested. Equate religious exclusiveness with racial discrimination and violence against gays. Make religious exclusiveness a hate crime!
In his book Perestroika, Mikhail Gorbachev stated that there are three root causes for war on earth: political conflicts, economic conflicts and religious conflicts. It was Gorbachev’s contention that if we could have some form of global governance, a world economy and mutual respect among all the religions of the world, we could realize a society of peace and security.
Since the fall of the Berlin Wall and the end of the Cold War, world leaders have attempted to build a world order based on consensus reached through dialogue among the nations. This effort has been successful enough that terms like the “world community” and the “international community” are regularly used to convey the impression that the world now speaks with a common voice.
When the United States adopted the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) back in 1994, the world moved into a one-world economy. Shortly after the adoption by the U.S., GATT was changed to WTO (World Trade Organization), which more accurately and openly reflected what the trade treaty actually was. For all intents and purposes, the WTO is a one-world economy. Two down and one to go!
That leaves religion—but it is the most difficult challenge of all. How do we bring peace between religions that sincerely believe their religion is the only correct way?
Could we outlaw religious conflict? That’s what Mr. Gorbachev recommended. He said we must extirpate genocide, apartheid and religious exclusiveness. He put believing your religion is the only correct way in the same category as the crimes of genocide and apartheid.
When we think of genocide, we think of six million Jews being marched to the horrendous Nazi death camps. We think of Rwanda and the millions that have been slaughtered there. When we think of apartheid we think of Nelson Mandela sitting in a jail cell for twenty-five years while a white minority ruled over a black majority.
Should religious exclusiveness be placed in the same class with these terrible crimes? Gorbachev thinks so! And the world community is buying into this concept.
We’ve seen what the pressure of political correctness can do. Disagreeing with the accepted philosophy of the day can get you censored from college campuses. Saying the wrong thing can result in loss of jobs and loss of careers.
But this is only the beginning! The zealots of religious inclusiveness want to give their movement the force of law. And their tactic is working. Do what Gorbachev suggested. Equate religious exclusiveness with racial discrimination and violence against gays. Make religious exclusiveness a hate crime!
So nation after nation has adopted hate crime laws that mandate fines and prison terms for what a person says or believes, not for what he does. George Orwell’s thought police that seemed so ridiculous when he wrote the book 1984 back in 1948, is now becoming reality.
Germany has outlawed home schooling. The government contends that it has an overriding interesting in insuring that children are exposed to German society so they can acquire the German mindset and fit into the noble nation that German leaders are trying to build. Never mind that they are using a law passed by Adolf Hitler to accomplish their new world order dreams! More than one child has been removed from their parents’ home by German police. The crime? Home schooling!
Canadian law mandates stiff fines and jail sentences against anyone daring to disagree with the contention that homosexuality must not be spoken against. Teachers, politicians and religious leaders are all cowed into submission in the name of outlawing genocide, which Mikhail Gorbachev well understood would inevitably lead to outlawing religious exclusiveness.
But it could never happen in America, right?
The politically correct crowd has yearned to teach Americans what to say and what to think. However, our strong tradition of freedom of speech and freedom of religion has held the people George Orwell warned us about somewhat at bay. But they haven’t given up!
They have already succeeded in passing a hate crime law. Do we need a hate crime law? No. A crime is a crime. Punish the crime but don’t try to determine what a person was thinking when he or she committed the crime. Don’t punish what a person believes. But if an individual’s beliefs result in a crime, then punish the crime. Don’t penalize thoughts, beliefs or speech. That is a violation of freedom of religion and freedom of speech, and it is unconstitutional.
Should we hate homosexuals and seek to hurt them or kill them? Absolutely not! We should love them just like Jesus does. But should we preach against homosexuality like both the Old and New Testaments do? Certainly. Hate the sin, but love the sinner.
California judge rules against home schooling
We didn’t think it could happen in America, but it did. Justice H. Walt Croskey of the 2nd Appellate Court in Los Angeles, California, ruled that home schooling in California is illegal unless the parents have valid state teaching credential for the grade being taught. This ruling, in all practicality, ruled the home schooling practices of 166,000 students in California illegal.
The real motives of Judge Croskey and the Appeals Court were illustrated by comments made by the court when rendering its decision. Specifically, the appeals court affirmed, the trial court had found that “keeping the children at home deprived them of situations where (1) they could interact with people outside the family, (2) there are people who could provide help if something is amiss in the children’s lives, and (3) they could develop emotionally in a broader world than the parents’ ‘cloistered’ setting.”
The same socialistic arguments used in Germany were used in California. The state has an interest in shaping the minds of children that overrides the desire of parents to teach their children their values. The bottom line: Your children don’t belong to you! They belong to the state! And the state knows what is best for them. Heil Hitler!
Fortunately, this California ruling has now been vacated and scheduled for retrial. But don’t relax. The ‘one-world belief system crowd’ is determined to have your children and to shape all of us into the global mindset of religious inclusiveness. After all, peace on earth, goodwill toward men depends on it.
Interfaithism will lead to the great tribulation
So when we see world-class politicians such as Tony Blair and Mikhail Gorbachev touting the virtues of Interfaithism, there is more than meets the eye. The Bible prophesies that some day you will be forced to pledge allegiance to the global religious system that promises peace and safety but delivers absolute control over every person on earth.
One-world government + one-world economy + one-world religion = The reign of the Antichrist and his great tribulation.
