Today's title is from Genesis 1:28:
And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.Critics of the Bible make a habit of selectively referencing only the Be fruitful, and multiply portion. It's so much simpler when using Critical Theory while waging cultural warfare to leave out a critical and common sense part of the equation. For that matter, in order to replenish the earth, it is best to allow men to have dominion of all creatures on the earth so that they can do it, which is found in the final phrases of the same passage.
Of course, those who seek to rule men want unfettered power to treat them like the other critters. (Hence their ongoing campaign to completely shred the United States Constitution because of its limits on their powers.) The Judeo-Christian ethic actually was evolving into its full potential in the United States -- and individuals from around the globe beat back all sorts of obstacles to get here.
But the regressives who cloaked themselves as "Progressives," protected the Marxists who implemented Critical Theory while the country was unaware of why they were as critical as they were. At this point they seem to have achieved a tremendous foothold in all our institutions.
When they were out of power, they criticized all they saw who were in power for their lack of perfection. They refused to allow that any of those flawed people could mean well. (The beginnings of Leftist projection started with that right there.) The only people who they permitted to mean well are other progressives and liberals.
They also they never call anyone on the left out for the radicals they are no matter how extreme. Kinda like they tolerate radical jihadis. When they use the word "extremist" that is reserved for ANYONE a smidgeon to the right of them. It's as obscene as Romney trying to run to the right of all other GOP candidates. That's another reason to distrust Romeny by the way -- he's using their tactics, but on the right, in a lying mirror image.
Anyway, the point of this post is that the Judeo-Christian ethic has in it all that is needed for caring for the environment, and none of it has to do with making a sub-species of all human beings who are not in agreement with those who hate the concept of God.
