Environmental Wackos At
It Again - Part 1
Judeo-Christian Churches Being Used To Push Dangerous U.N. Treaty:
The eye-opening article that follows, written by Tom DeWeese of the American
Policy Institute, illustrates the success that the Jewish controlled Communis
environmentalists are having in operating from America's Judeo-Christian
church pulpits. Isn't it interesting that the IRS is threatening to revoke
the tax-exempt status of Bible-believing churches and ministries that dare
to criticize the United Nations or who expose the environmentalist agenda?
Yet, apparently the IRS has no problem with tax-exempt Judeo-Christian
churches and groups (like the National Council of Churches) who use political
lobbying to cram United Nations environmental treaties down America's throat!
The National Council of churches (NCC) has launched a major drive
to enlist Judeo-Christian congregations in a massive letter-writing campaign
in support of the United Nations global warming treaty that was negotiated
in Kyoto, Japan. The treaty must still be ratified by the U.S. Senate.
The treaty has met major opposition in the Senate because compliance
will force the United States to cut back on energy use by at least 30%;
increase the price of gasoline by as much as 50 cents per gallon; and cause
severe energy shortages and possible gas lines across the nation. The treaty
is supported by a coalition of radical-left environmental groups who advocate
central control of the nation's economy. Most scientists now agree that
the treaty would do little to protect the environment.
A Communist Agenda: The National Council of Churches has a long
history of supporting and promoting leftist causes. For example, documents
captured with Communist guerrillas in El Salvador in 1983, implicated the
NCC in channeling money to those Communist insurgents. The NCC was also
involved in promoting the communist Nicaraguan Sandinista Party and the
Communist FRELIMO government of Mozambique.
So it comes as no surprise that the NCC is now heavily involved
in promoting the radical environmental agenda as well. The NCC's General
Secretary, Rev. Joan Brown Campbell, says the goal is to make global warming
"a litmus test for the faith community."
In truth, this effort by the National Council of Churches, along
with the U.S. Catholic Conference and the Evangelical Environmental Network,
is part of a nationwide drive by radical "greens' to influence American
churches into promoting unfounded, nonscientific environmental policies.
Beginning in 1993, more than 100 million Americans in 67,000 congregations
became the target of radical leftist environmental propaganda, fueled by
over $5 million in grants from private foundations. The goal is to break
down the strongest resistance in an environmental movement that advocates
earth worship, and the idea that man is only equal to rocks, plants, and
The National Religious Partnership for the Environment (NRPE)
announced its $5 million dollar program on October 5, 1993, at the Mount
Gilead Baptist Church in Washington, D.C. Its stated purpose was to "underscore
the connection between addressing issues of poverty and the environment."
The Partnership is a forma agreement among four of the nation's largest
religious organizations: The U.S. Catholic conference, National Council
of Churches, Coalition of the Environment and Jewish Life, and the Evangelical
