“[Trump’s] victory, this summer’s Brexit vote and the growing popularity of nationalist movements across Europe have raised grave concerns…at the Vatican” (USA Today).
The pope seems to want a worldwide melting pot of cultures and religions that are causing chaos and confusion in Europe as a warning to America before we are tolerant of everything and everybody.
Excusing terrorist acts from people who claim ‘a religion of peace’ while we send our children home from school for cutting a peach with a butter knife is bureaucratic insanity that only the king of Babylon (a word that means confusion) will be able to sort out with his great words of benevolence.
To be the savior of their world, governments facing a crisis seem compelled to “bring it on” while offering high-sounding platitudes that involve answers like global warming. In 130 years of record-keeping, the average temperature worldwide has gone up 1.3 degrees centigrade (1/10 of a degree each decade) For that we need a Paris Treaty? We would do far better to solve our problems locally.
There was a divine wisdom behind the scattering of people into different language groups from the time of Babel (a word that also means confusion) in Genesis 11. But as governments based on bad laws are falling apart, they think they can solve the problem by merging with others as in the EU.
Bad laws create rebellion. When drug companies can make billions in profits but can’t be sued for the damages they cause as a leading cause of illness and death, it creates hostility. Faced with medical literature to support adverse drug reactions as such a cause, one senator said it was a waste of time—“They own us,” speaking of drug company donations to their re-election campaign.
In contrast to special interests and unfair laws worldwide, we might consider the greatest document of self-government ever recorded, the Ten Commandments. Prefaced by God’s deliverance from the bondage in Egypt, He implied, because you love Me and wish to live well, you will not lie, cheat and steal. People who break those wise principles destroy their own happiness.
Doing unto others as we would want them to do for us is the Golden Rule that exposes the history of major false religions today that use force or government to support them.
If we don’t learn the principles of law and order in our lives, there won’t be enough police to enforce our jumping through all the hoops in a never-ending escalation of rules, regulations and interference.
America’s pioneers got it right when they gave us the second greatest document in history—the Constitution with its Bill of Rights to ensure our freedoms. But those pushing for global government are creating a crisis, stripping us of our rights to free speech and protest, our right to arms that has kept this country out of tyranny so far, and dumb us down with TV and lame-stream media that tells us it’s all okay—go back to sleep.
