Fighting the Growth of Theocracy in America -- Part 1

There are two fitting alternate titles for this topic.

1. Fighting the Establishment of a State Religion in America. 

It is important to this discussion that individuals who might be subjugated by such an influence established in law understand the wider definition of religion. Religion requires no supernatural supreme entity for its existence:
Religion: a pursuit or interest to which someone ascribes supreme importance.
As will be discussed later, the new religion of the time is the supreme need of preventing world catastrophes such as CAGW er CACC. And pursuing what is known as Sustainability.

But first, let us examine the opponents of existing legitimate and currently peace-loving religions: militant atheists and anti-theists.

While extreme atheists and anti-theists are well known for haranguing those who think of themselves as theists, and even those who merely are tolerant of theists, they never utter a word about pursuits or interests of supreme importance to other groups that are used to drive the growth of government.

Indeed, one of the most visible of these anti-theists, the late Christopher Hitchens, was an admitted communist. Funny -- isn't it? -- how a media-renown and eloquent man such as Hitchens never acknowledged how his views on a "just" society constituted a religion for him.

Ah, but so it goes with all supermen who bemoan the obstacle of individualists. It must be upsetting for them to watch "lesser" men "foolishly" seek guidance from concepts outside themselves rather than accept guidance from men who know themselves to be superior.

Establishing a state religion, where heretics may be punished by law, surely seems like the kind of  solution of which supermen would approve for ruling the hoi polloi.

And just as surely, this is what America's founding generation was trying to prevent when they added the opening phrase to the 1st Amendment to the constitution. 
-- Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; --

2. Our Need to Reclaim the Age of Reason from Scientism

Scientism: Belief that science has all the answers. Once a favored theory is accepted it is treated as if it were sacred. Any who disagree are to be stripped of their science credentials and cast out.

Scientism provides a wonderful tactic, when promulgated by a soviet-style media and Leftist bent academics, to move forward with unpopular policies "in the pursuit of truth as proven by science."

Of course no part of this charade is remotely scientific. Its purpose is to bestow the prestige of the science label on rationales for unpopular or unconstitutional government policies while simultaneously scaring most critics into silence and marginalizing the rest. When critics persist, then out comes an enforcement arm that seeks to stem unfavorable discussions of those policies not only by labeling them illegitimate, but by publicly discussing how prosecutions are being considered.

How the implications of this trend to establishing a state run religion in America threatens the onslaught of a new Dark Age will be discussed in subsequent posts.

***Update two, proof from their own lips:

Rajendra Pachauri, former head of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change:
“For me, the protection of Planet Earth, the survival of all species and sustainability of our ecosystems is more than a mission. It is my religion and my dharma.” -- source
Part 3: "Those Forced to Pass a Religious Test Have Standing in Court."


  1. Concerning THE RULING CLASS - Does the oligarchy have a "Mr. Big" who directs the operation, or are they a collection of individuals who hold the same ambition for world conquest and have somehow achieved a "collective mind."

    1. Because the Prog movement has been around for so long, I'd say there is no one Mr. Big.

      My considered opinion is that we are fighting an influential army held together by ideology that is based upon a moral paradigm shift.

      In short, and putting both in the best light.
      American culture's moral code is for the most part live and let live. Theirs is increase death rates so humanity may survive.
      The American is based upon faith in an ordered universe in which man will always find sufficient means to survive. This is much like the Bible's "the Lord will provide." Yet even atheists can accept it.

      Theirs is based upon fear in large numbers of under-performing humanity using up limited resources. The fact that their plans have included making sure that large numbers remain uneducated and propagandized reveals their actual goals to eliminate the victims of their programs.

      I've two more links for you Ron.
      This may help answer your question directly about the makeup of the group.

      This should help explain my understanding of the two forces faced off against each other. I may be the only one who has ever really made note of it too. Also, it may help you decide with which side you are really in agreement. If your allegiance remains with the traditionalists, it may help you reinvigorate your efforts.

  2. I agree...It interesting to me how little anyone else is interested in learning about the puppet masters. I wonder why?

    1. Fear is my guess Ron. Akin to the belief that if they keep really quiet the monster may forget about them or at least eat them last.

      As and example, I've been told by someone who I'd previously thought to be bright "It's not that I have my head in the sand, it's just that I don't want to know."

      Additionally, the forces of evil have so convinced the public that confronting evil NEVER pays off (note how any heroes and heroines who start to emerge have been pilloried by the SSM) that I think that has to be playing apart.

      What is missing in the leadership of the opposition to the Susnuts is a leader who bring joy to the battle. I fully comprehend that what I write reads like Jeremiads. I pray that I can find a more uplifting voice -- if not for myself, then for another who understands where the battle lines really are.

  3. Courtesy of Ed Driscoll today.

    Jerry Taylor of the Cato Institute tells a story about Julian Simon, the late and great economist.He was at some environmental forum, and he said, “How many people here believe that the earth is increasingly polluted and that our natural resources are being exhausted?” Naturally, every hand shot up. He said, “Is there any evidence that could dissuade you?” Nothing. Again: “Is there any evidence I could give you — anything at all — that would lead you to reconsider these assumptions?” Not a stir. Simon then said, “Well, excuse me, I’m not dressed for church.”
