Socialism Is The Incubator And Nursery For Paganism ... J. D. Longstreet
By: J. D. Longstreet
As socialism wraps it’s cold, icy, fingers around freedom’s throat in America many Americans have slowly come to the realization that the socialist takeover of America did not happen overnight. There were plenty of warning signs over the past few decades. As I think back, the most obvious of the “warning signs” was/is the so-called “Green Movement.”
Those who follow the Green Movement, the acolytes of the Global Warming “religion,” are easily identified by their unbridled compulsion to bow down to the false idols of science, to socialist politics, and, let us not forget… M O N E Y! You find them everywhere these days. Turn on a TV and there they are straining to burden you with a guilt trip about the damage YOU have done to the planet and how YOU must atone for your wickedness in order to be redeemed from your sins against the “Earth Mother.”
Go to church, and there they are, often in the pulpits, railing about YOUR sins -- NOT against God -- but your sins against the Earth, the climate, the Polar bears, etc, etc.
In America’s schools YOUR children are being indoctrinated in the world’s newest religion and they are instructed to act as missionaries taking the message of the new salvation back home to their parents and family and friends and neighbors. They are made to sit through propaganda movies by Nobel Prize winners, which scare the living daylights out of them and help mold those malleable mental crucibles into warriors of the LEFT armed with lies, deceit, and more propaganda.
Spreading the Green Gospel ain’t easy. If the "Greenies" get them at birth, and all the way through 16 to 20 years in our public education system, THEY ARE LOST! The Green cult has got them… unless there is an “Intervention.”
Our politicians sold out, long ago, to the “Greenies.” They preach energy independence and then refuse to allow America to become energy independent by using the oil and coal we have right here beneath American soil or under American waters or in the rocks that litter America’s landscape or trapped in the layers of rock deep underground -- far beneath the water table and aquifers.
And now we have a President absolutely committed to the green religion. The man can be forgiven some of his folly for if you dig a little past his carefully crafted veneer you will find him not as intelligent as you have been led to believe.
Back to the new OLD religion. (That was not a misprint, or an editorial screw-up.) See, that’s what this new Green religion is… O L D! It is out and out paganism.
The first time I heard a minister preaching on the merits of environmentalism from the pulpit, I nearly burst out laughing! (My wife's elbow, urgently gouging into my rib cage, reminded me that this was NOT the place for a confrontation.) The man was obviously educated beyond his abilities! There was a man, supposedly a man of God, speaking from a sacred spot in a building set aside for the worship of God, endorsing paganism which, itself, is the world’s OLDEST religion!
I ask you, how is it possible for any reasonably educated individual NOT to recognize the Green Movement for what it is… pure Paganism, the worship of Gaia, the “earth mother, or “Mother Earth”.
Many believe that paganism died after Constantine in the third century. Not so! It DID recede but the practice of paganism continued in the jungles of Africa and right here in what we now call America, and even in Europe where the practice went, for all intents and purposes, underground.
Paganism has survived into the 21st century. Not much about it has changed except the name by which it is known today…. environmentalism.
Environmentalism is the worship of the earth. It is the deification of the planet and raising it up above that which Christians and Jews refer to as God, Jehovah, and Yahweh. It is, for Christians and Jews, a violation of the First Commandment: “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.”
Even now, as I write this, I envision modern day Americans bowing down to trees and rocks and rivers and oceans paying homage to Gaia the “earth mother”. How utterly disgusting it is to see grown men and women make complete fools of themselves in pagan worship. What makes it truly disturbing is that these same men and women who bow down to the idols of a false god, a pagan god, Gaia, will rush to church or temple or synagogue on Saturday, or Sunday, and maintain a straight face while they go through the motions of worshiping the Creator of all this is -- seen and unseen.
Yes, the pagans are back from the fringes of society and the shadows of civilization to take advantage of mankind’s deep yearning for something to worship that he, or she, can see and hold and touch and pay tribute to in order to, somehow, redeem himself/herself from whatever his/her, darkest fears happen to be.
They call it environmentalism, but those of us who recognize it for what it is call it by its real name… paganism.
It is important to understand the link between paganism and socialism. Here in America we now have a socialist government, as does much of the rest of the world. Here’s the link…socialism is the incubator and the nursery for paganism.
You see, America is now in it’s “Post-Christian Era.” We are no longer a Christian nation.
America, today, is, at best, a Socialist/Pagan nation.
There is a price America must pay for her failure to live into her promise, to live up to her role as the leader of the world. Make no mistake, America forsook her leadership role and joined the mob. If you have been surprised at the rapidity with which America has crumbled, then you have not been paying attention. Stand-by, for the worst is yet to come. We are only at the cusp of the troubles and tribulations this nation must yet suffer.
Already, today, some of us chafe under the yoke of socialism. The knowledge that the burden is only going to grow heavier makes the chafing even worse.
Watching America desperately seeking redemption through the pagan worship of the earth, this oldest of old religions, it occurred to me that, at least, here in America, we have finally succeeded in creating God in our own image… and it is an abomination!
