• The image of Earth as organism—famously
dubbed Gaia by environmentalist James
Lovelock—has probably been overworked,
but that’s not to say the planet can't behave
like a living thing, and these days, it's a living
thing fighting a fever.
“Earth has a fever!”

2 PETER 3:10
But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in
the night; in the which the heavens shall pass
away with a great noise, and the elements
shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also
and the works that are therein shall be
burned up.
If we take the Bible literally, earth will get so hot that
it will all burn up,
that is at the very least 1007 years from today
[more later]!
So Al Gore is a bit right, but his timing is more than
1000 years off, and it will not be a gradual process,
• Al Gore assumes a poorly designed earth
which responds to changes by making them
worse; when there is much true science that
supports the idea that earth has many built in
corrective responses, especially in
relationship to our sun and seas, which no
effort of man can alter or improve.

that the Nobel committee honored Mr. Gore for
his work in advertising and promoting the
hypothesis that there is a link between human
activity and global warming.

• "The human impact on the atmosphere is simply
too small to have a major effect on global
temperatures,” Dr. Gray said.
• He said his beliefs had made him an outsider in
popular science.

speaking out against something they know is
wrong," he said. "But they also know that they'd
never get any grants if they spoke out. I don't care

• “You wouldn’t know it from Al Gore’s An
Inconvenient Truth, but there are many upsides to
global warming:…” says Dr. Fred Singer, Professor
Emeritus of Environmental Studies, University of Virginia,
(Imprimis, Aug. 2007, p.1). Also: Distinguished research
professor at George Mason University, president of the
Science and Environmental Policy Project; Ph.D. in Physics
from Princeton University; founding dean of the School of
Environmental and Planetary Sciences at University of
Miami; founding director of the U.S. National Weather
Satellite Service; past vice-chairman of the U.S. National
Advisory Committee on Oceans and Atmosphere.
• Dr. Fred Singer is one of the most qualified
environmental scientists in the world, and he
is not at all concerned with the present liberal
and celebrity faddishness that we are about to
be destroyed by human-generated global
• Dr. Singer says: “In the past few years there
has been increasing concern about global
climate change on the part of the media,
politicians, and the public. It has been
stimulated by the idea that human activities
may influence global climate adversely and
• that therefore corrective action is required on the
part of governments. Recent evidence suggests
that this concern is misplaced. Human activities
are not influencing the global climate in
perceptible ways. Climate will continue to change,
as it always has in the past, warming and cooling
on different time scales and for different reasons,
regardless of human action. I would also argue
that—should it occur—a modest warming would
be on the whole beneficial.
FRED SINGER BS (Ohio State), MS,
PhD (Princeton) continues:
• “This is not to say that we don’t face a serious
problem. But the problem is political [Is Al Gore a
lifetime politician or a credentialed PhD scientist?].
• Because of the mistaken idea that governments can
and must do something about climate, pressures
are building that have the potential of distorting
energy policies in a way that will severely damage
national economies, decrease standards of living,
and increase poverty. This misdirection of resources
will adversely affect human health and welfare in
in industrialized nations, and even more in developing
nations. Thus it could well lead to increased social
tensions within nations and conflict between them.
If not for this economic and political damage, one
might consider the present concern about climate
change nothing more than just another
environmentalist fad, like the Alar apple scare or
the global cooling fears of the 1970s. Given that so
much is at stake, however, it is essential that people
better understand the issue. Dr. Fred Singer, “Global
Warming: Man-Made or Natural” Imprimis Volume 36
Number 8, August 2007, p. 1
• “But in seeking to understand recent warming, we
also have to consider the natural factors that have
regularly warmed the climate prior to the industrial
revolution and, indeed, prior to any human
presence on the earth. After all, the geological
record shows a persistent 1,500-year cycle of
warming and cooling extending back at least one
million years” (Dr. Fred Singer) [The 1500 year
cycles are evident—but only for about 6000 years:
depending on your worldview.]

• The mud at the bottom of B.C. fjords reveals that
solar output drives climate change - and that we
should prepare now for dangerous global cooling
• R. TIMOTHY PATTERSON, Financial Post
• Published: Wednesday, June 20, 2007
Dr. Patterson continues:
• In some fields the science is indeed "settled."
For example, plate tectonics, once highly
controversial, is now so well-established that
we rarely see papers on the subject at all. But
the science of global climate change is still in
its infancy, with many thousands of papers
published every year.
• In a 2003 poll conducted by German environmental
researchers Dennis Bray and Hans von Storch, twothirds of more than 530 climate scientists from 27
countries surveyed did not believe that "the current
state of scientific knowledge is developed well
enough to allow for a reasonable assessment of the
effects of greenhouse gases." About half of those
polled stated that the science of climate change was
not sufficiently settled to pass the issue over to
policymakers at all.
• “Solar scientists predict that, by 2020, the sun
will be starting into its weakest Schwabe solar
cycle of the past two centuries, likely leading
to unusually cool conditions on Earth.”
R. Timothy Patterson, Ph.D.
• “Beginning to plan for adaptation to such a cool
period, one which may continue well beyond one
11-year cycle, as did the Little Ice Age, should be a
priority for governments. It is global cooling, not
warming, that is the major climate threat to the
world, especially Canada. As a country at the
northern limit to agriculture in the world, it would
take very little cooling to destroy much of our food
crops, while a warming would only require that we
adopt farming techniques practiced to the south of
R. Timothy Patterson concludes:
• “Meantime, we need to continue research
into this, the most complex field of science
ever tackled, and immediately halt wasted
expenditures on the King Canute-like task of
"stopping climate change."

“Research casts doubt on global warming”
• “Claims that man-made pollution has caused
unprecedented warming have been undermined by
research that shows the earth was warmer in the
Middle Ages” (800-1300 A.D.)
• “The review by a Harvard University team…proves
that the world had a medieval warm period
between the 9th and 14th centuries with world
temperatures significantly higher than today.”

Patagonia is retreating.
• But “Just fifty kilometers away from Upsala is
Moreno, which is growing, and thereby calving.
Claims of Moreno’s retreat are typically danced
around without brazenly lying about it “melting,”
and are pure fabrication and illustrative of the
lengths to which environmentalists go to
dishonestly frighten people.” Christopher Horner, The Politically
Incorrect Guide to Global Warming and Environmentalism, D.C.:Regenery Pubs.,
2007, P. 223.
• Horner continues: Other much larger glaciers
nearby are advancing without the pleasure of
angst-ridden eco-tourists and pencil-gnawing
journalists. In fact, “While in the same region in
Patagonia, either in the Argentinean or Chilean
sides, there are small glaciers on retreat, there are
other medium sized glaciers in stable condition, and
really big glaciers growing at record speed and
volume.” []
• For example, South America’s largest glacier, Pio XI,
is growing very quickly. The greens and media just
missed it, that’s all, another case of not seeing the
forest for being busy hugging trees. (Horner, p. 224)

right unto a man, but the end
thereof are the ways of death.
Does earth have a history of environmental and
ecological disasters?
How did earth begin?
According the Bible, the God of the Bible created
everything in six days and it was “very good.”
(Genesis 1:31)
It was also a warm climate with mild seasons
(Adam and Eve were both naked in the Garden of
Eden=warm and no clothing needed).
(Genesis 2:25)
• It did not rain, “…for the LORD God had not caused
it to rain upon the earth,… 6 But there went up a
mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of
the ground.” (Genesis 2:5-6)
• Man and animal ate vegetation (Genesis 1:29, 30).
• There were mild seasons (Genesis 1:14)
• There was probably one land mass with 4 rivers
flowing out of the one river (Genesis 2:10-15).
• The earth was pole to pole greenhouse warm (giant
trees and palm tree fossils in Alaska, broad leaf
ferns in the Antarctica, warm temp animals frozen
solid in New Siberian Islands, but today willows 1”).
• Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit (The Fall) and
the earth and everything in it was cursed.
• …cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt
thou eat of it all the days of thy life; 18 Thorns also
and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou
shalt eat the herb of the field; 19 In the sweat of thy
face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the
ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou
art, and unto dust shalt thou return. Gen. 3:17b-19
1st Ecological disaster = The Fall
2nd Eco disaster = The Global Flood
The earth also was corrupt before God, and the
earth was filled with violence. 12 And God looked
upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all
flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
• 13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is
come before me; for the earth is filled with violence
through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with
the earth (Gen. 6:11-13).
• 12 And the rain was upon the earth forty days and
forty nights (Gen. 7:12). THE FIRST RAIN!
• 1 And God remembered Noah, and every living
thing, and all the cattle that was with him in the
ark: and God made a wind to pass over the earth,
and the waters asswaged; 2 The fountains also of
the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped,
and the rain from heaven was restrained; 3 And the
waters returned from off the earth continually: and
after the end of the hundred and fifty days the
waters were abated (Genesis 8:1-3).
While the earth remaineth, seedtime and
harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter,
and day and night shall not cease (Genesis 8:21-22).
No longer mild seasons, but heat and cold =
No longer harvest any time all year long.
Earth now a harsher place to live
After the Flood: meat eating now approved by God
for man and animals (see Genesis 9:1-5).
14 To
him that is afflicted pity should be
shewed from his friend; but he forsaketh the
fear of the Almighty. 15 My brethren have
dealt deceitfully as a brook, and as the stream
of brooks they pass away; 16 Which are
blackish by reason of the ice, and wherein the
snow is hid: 17 What time they wax warm,
they vanish: when it is hot, they are consumed
out of their place. Job 6:14-17
• Ice and snow and hail and frost had a
beginning after the flood(Job 38:29) “29Out of
whose womb came the ice? and the hoary
frost of heaven, who hath gendered it?”
• Ice and snow are kept in “storehouses” which
are probably the polar ice caps (Job 38:22)
“22 Hast thou entered into the treasures of the
snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the
hail?” (treasures, treasuries, storehouses)
An Environmental Disaster
And there was a famine in the land: and Abram
went down into Egypt to sojourn there; for the
famine was grievous in the land (Genesis 12:10).
• The drought was so intense and prolonged that
Abraham was forced to move his family to Egypt to
find food and water.
Earlier I mentioned that at least 1007
years are left to earth history before
God burns it all up. How can such a
statement be made?
Starting today more than 1000 years
remain in earth history!
• The Premillennial Escatological theological position
believes that the Creator Himself, the Lord Jesus
Christ, (see in the Bible John 1; Colossians 1;
Hebrews 1) will leave His throne in heaven to come
to rule on earth from Jerusalem in the last days
before He destroys earth and all it contains by fire.
While He reigns the curse will be removed and the
earth will bring forth its increase as not seen since
the days of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.
And I saw an angel come down from heaven,
having the key of the bottomless pit and a
great chain in his hand. 2 And he laid hold on
the dragon, that old serpent, which is the
Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand
years, 3 And cast him into the bottomless pit,
and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that
he should deceive the nations no more, till the
thousand years should be fulfilled: and after
that he must be loosed a little season.
And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and
judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls
of them that were beheaded for the witness of
Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not
worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither
had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in
their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ
a thousand years. 5 But the rest of the dead lived
not again until the thousand years were finished.
This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy is he
that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the
second death hath no power, but they shall be
priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with
him a thousand years.
• During this unique 1000 year reign of Creator Jesus
(John 1; Colossians 1; Hebrews 1) Who alone is the
Messiah and Savior of mankind (Isaiah 53; Psalm
22; John 3; Romans 3:23-24, 6:23, 5:8; 10:9-13; 1
John 5:10-13; Ephesians 2:8-10), the curse caused
by the sin of Adam which brought disease, decay
and death to planet earth (Romans 5:12, 1
Corinthians 15:20-22) will be removed (Acts 3:1821). The fear between man and beast initiated in
Genesis 9:1-5 will be removed and life-spans greatly
increased for man and beast.
ISAIAH 11-6-9
The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the
leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the
young lion and the fatling together; and a little child
shall lead them. 7 And the cow and the bear shall feed;
their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion
shall eat straw like the ox. 8 And the sucking child shall
play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall
put his hand on the cockatrice’ den. 9 They shall not

be accursed. 25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed

• Comment: The so-called naysayers—more
accurately, non-alarmists—are a hardy breed,
and their ranks include many respected
scientists, several dozen of which recently
argued in a letter to Canadian Prime Minister
Stephen Harper that, “If, back in the mid1990s, we knew what we know today about
climate, Kyoto would almost certainly not
exist, because we would have concluded it
was not necessary.”

from Kyoto? Two most environmentally

Christopher Horner,
The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming
“Naturalism’s modern successor, today’s
environmentalism bordering on eco-theism, asserts
that the only way to preserve nature is through
state control of resources and liberties. By this
thinking, the falling Iron Curtain should have
revealed a green Eden, but we know that to be far
from the case….
Horner continues:
Today’s “environmentalist” comes in many varieties,
from ill-shaven undergrads to wealthy elites, with
myriad motivators driving this activism. The modern
environmentalist’s motivation is generally not a love
of biological diversity or horticulture, not a desire to
expand animal habitats and so on—though these
advocates certainly do exist, in obscurity.
Instead, today’s environmentalist is generally “anti-”
something, and that something is typically related
to growth: economic growth, population growth,
physical development, or simply the individual
property rights necessary for growth. Cute panda
logos and other kitsch aside, outside of the rare
breeds arguing in favor of one cause or another,
today’s environmentalist is removed in scope and
degree from his naturalist ancestors.”

Junk Science
• Junk science?
• "Junk science" is faulty scientific data and analysis used to
advance special and, often, hidden agendas. The junk science
"mob" includes [the following samples]:
• MEDIA - sensational headlines and programming
• PERSONAL INJURY LAWYERS - bamboozle juries into awarding
huge verdicts
• SOCIAL ACTIVISTS - achieve social and political change.
• GOVERNMENT REGULATORS - expand their authority to
increase their budgets.
• POLITICIANS - curry favor with special interest groups or to be
"politically correct."

frenzy with his doomsday documentary, “An
Inconvenient Truth.”
3 - What Hurricane Season? The National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s
prediction for the 2006 hurricane season was
about as wrong as wrong can be.
• Global warming alarmism is the bread and butter of
a host of special interests. The perception that
global warming is something to be “very worried”
about is the sine qua non of billions of dollars in
annual government contracts to researchers and
universities, and millions of dollars in annual direct
mail contributions to eco-activist groups. Insurance
companies like Swiss Re profit from spreading
alarm, because it gives them a convenient pretext
to raise the premiums they charge to cover
weather-related damages. “News” magazines like
Time profit from spreading alarm, because scary
stories and scarier covers sell copy.
• “Admittedly the weather is warming; some
scientists tell us it has increased 0.7 or 0.8 degrees
during the last one hundred years, hardly enough to
raise the ocean levels one inch worldwide—a far cry
from the outrageously dogmatic twenty inches Al

that is being shown all over America to our
innocent school children. The reason is simple: the
public schools are controlled by leftists— “worldly
wisdom” teachers with an agenda.” Tim LeHaye
Al Gore testified before the US Senate
• Under the normal rules, a witness's statement before a
congressional committee is limited to 15 minutes, and a
written version must be submitted at least 48 hours before
the hearing. Gore demanded 30 minutes and was given it,
requested permission to submit his written testimony only 24
hours before the hearing and was granted it, and then failed
to meet that deadline. His written testimony did not reach
the Democrat staff members of the House Energy and
Commerce Committee until about 1 a.m. Wednesday, just 9
hours before the hearing--and Republican staff did not
receive their copies until 7 a.m., six hours later than the
Democrats and just 3 hours before the hearing. Committee

• Media reports showcased Gore's testimony. Citizens
who depended on the media would have had a difficult
time detecting a very inconvenient truth for Gore: His
oral testimony, though filled with claims of impending
catastrophe and recommendations for responses the
benefits of which he boasted would outweigh the costs,
was woefully short on specific details of scientific and
economic data, documentation, and argumentation.
“His written testimony
(, a mere three
pages, reads, to put it bluntly, as if written by a
precocious sixth-grade student no more familiar with
the issue than if he'd read a few hundred headlines in
the popular media.”
E. Calvin Beisner
• In contrast, Dr. Lomborg's written testimony
0-eaq-hrg.032107.Lomborg-testimony.pdf) is a
masterpiece of well-informed scholarship. Twentythree pages long, including four pages of references
to technical sources, it is filled with hard data,
documentation to authoritative sources, and clear
and cogent argumentation. Lomborg's testimony
explicitly and convincingly proves many of Gore's
most important and frightening claims to be false
and indeed irresponsible. His written testimony
reads, to put it bluntly, as if written by a Ph.D.'d
specialist in the field (which he is) who diligently
dug beneath headlines to solid information.
• While we at the Interfaith Stewardship
Alliance [E. Calvin Beisner] do not agree that
current warming is mostly manmade (for
reasons, see the "Call to Truth," at
ltoTruth.pdf, and "Important Developments on
Global Warming in 2006,"
GlobalWarmingSummary2006.pdf), we
wholeheartedly agree that taking Gore's
advice will cost millions of lives.
• It will force the world's poorest people to continue
for decades or generations using wood and dried
dung as their primary heating and cooking fuels,
causing indoor air pollution that kills nearly 2
million every year. It will slow their economic
development and hence their ability to leave
behind the contaminated drinking water and
untreated sewage that kill another 2 million or
more every year. It will delay their ability to afford
measures to overcome hunger, malnutrition, and
infectious diseases, together costing more millions
of lives each year.

• The Chilling Stars: A New Theory of Climate Change
will re-ignite the heated debate about the causes of
global warming. In their controversial new book, Danish
physicist Henrik Svensmark and British science writer
Nigel Calder affirm that it’s not manmade carbon
dioxide that’s at fault for global warming, but natural
forces at work in the universe. It’s a radical departure
from prevailing popular belief, and a theory that
Svensmark and Calder argue for eloquently and
persuasively in this new landmark book.
• A Compelling Theory Backed by Intensive Research
• Wayne Grudem says Gore’s environmental
push runs contrary to what the Bible says
about man’s relationship to creation -– he is
told to rule over it in Genesis 1:28 -– as well as
what the Bible says about the wisdom of God
in Proverbs 3:19-20: “19 The LORD by wisdom
hath founded the earth; by understanding
hath he established the heavens. 20 By his
knowledge the depths are broken up, and the
clouds drop down the dew.” “I find it highly
doubtful that the Lord would set the earth up
in such a way that we would destroy it by
obeying His command,” Grudem said. “And
yet, that’s exactly what the alarmists would
have us think.”
• Our weather super-cycles are quite normal and
are in reality due to cyclical changes in tilt of
the earth's rotational axis and path of revolution
around the sun (do a Google search on
"Milankovitch cycles"). We are not going to move
the earth's axis or rotational path by changing to a
different type of light bulb. The notion that we
can is nothing more than Satan's idea "I will be like
the most high" (Isa 14:14).
• David Bueche, (personal e-mail)
• So the real issue in the global warming battle
is—who is in control!
• Is the God of all creation in control or is man
in control?
• Do we worship “Goddess Mother Earth” (The
Gaia Principle-Hypothesis) or do we worship
God Almighty of the Bible?
• It appears that Al Gore, the leading evangelist
of the global warming propaganda machine
worships “mother earth.”
• He says (Earth in the Balance, p. 260): “Europe
and much of the world was based on the
worship of a single earth goddess, who was
assumed to be the fount of all life….The last
vestige of organized goddess worship was
eliminated by Christianity….”
• Christians are the bad guys (see p. 260-264)
2 PETER 3:5-7
For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the
word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth
standing out of the water and in the water: 6
Whereby the world that then was, being
overflowed with water, perished [flood of Noah’s day,
Genesis 6-8]: 7 But the heavens and the earth, which
are now, by the same word are kept in store,
reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and
perdition of ungodly men.
2 PETER 3:10
But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in
the night; in the which the heavens shall pass
away with a great noise, and the elements
shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also
and the works that are therein shall be
burned up.
But of the times and the seasons, brethren,
ye have no need that I write unto you. 2 For
yourselves know perfectly that the day of the
Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 3 For
when they shall say, Peace and safety; then
sudden destruction cometh upon them, as
travail upon a woman with child; and they
shall not escape. 4 But ye, brethren, are not in
darkness, that that day should overtake you as
a thief.
• Moreover, the "global warming" over which
the liberals are so terrified are normal
weather super-cycles: Gen 8:21, 22 - As long
as the earth remains, God will not curse the
world any more for man's sake, nor destroy all
living things (i.e., not only by flood, but by any
means). Normal cycles (seedtime & harvest,
summer & winter, HEAT and COLD) will
continue as long as the earth exists.

1) Does God Himself ever bring changes to the
weather? Yes, and often in judgment: 10 “Therefore
the heaven over you is stayed from dew, and the
earth is stayed from her fruit. 11 And I called for a
drought upon the land, and upon the mountains,
and upon the corn,…” Haggai 1:10-11
2) Is the world today so innocent that it does not
deserve a bit of drought? Will man's actions (less
CO2 & different light bulbs) change God's judgment
on humankind’s rebellion against Him? (Job 40:7, 8)

of views opposed to the “Left.”
• Since about 1919 Marxists have been silencing any
opposition to socialist ideas and propaganda.
• Under Joseph Stalin’s rule the opposition was
imprisoned, put in psychiatric hospitals or shot.
• The same in Castro’s Cuba.

Jesus said:
17 “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word
is truth. 18 As thou hast sent me into the
world, even so have I also sent them into the
world. 19 And for their sakes I sanctify
myself, that they also might be sanctified
through the truth.”
PSALM 119:11
“Thy Word have I hid in mine
heart, that I might not sin
against Thee.”
For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the
gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of
Christ should be made of none effect. 18 For the
preaching of the cross is to them that perish
foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the
power of God. 19 For it is written, I will destroy the
wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the
understanding of the prudent. 20 Where is the wise?
where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this
world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this
world? 21 For after that in the wisdom of God the
world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the
foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
But the natural man receiveth not the things
of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness
unto him: neither can he know them, because
they are spiritually discerned.
God says to Christians: “Know ye not that ye are the
temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth
in you? 17 If any man defile the temple of God, him
shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy,
which temple ye are.
18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you
seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a
fool, that he may be wise. 19 For the wisdom of this
world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He
taketh the wise in their own craftiness. 20 And again,
The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that
they are vain.”

was very good.
Adam was given dominion over the earth.
Then came sin and the curse.

Postmodernists are evolutionists who worship the
creature rather than the Creator (Romans 1:25).
The university campuses of the world are full of

• There are no absolute ethical concerns.
• There is no God.
• There are personal opinions.
• There are personal perspectives.
• See the writings of Nietzsche, Derrida, Lyotard,

• Most Postmodernist thinkers are/were disillusioned
• “Atheism is the theological belief that there is no
God, no supernatural Creator, no Divine moral law
giver, and no ultimate Judge of man’s actions. It is
the theological backbone of not only Secular
Humanism and Marxism, but it is also the
predominant theological view of classical

them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the

understood by the things that are made, even his
eternal power and Godhead; so that they are
without excuse: 21 Because that, when they knew

• Disillusioned Marxists became Postmodernists and
now gain strength through Multiculturalism and its
stepchild, Political Correctness, which is rightly
labeled, “Cultural Marxism”.
• Marx and Lenin taught that, given the chance,
European workers would overthrow capitalist
governments and replace them with communism.
• But after the Russian revolution of 1917 the
Western European workers did not support the
Communist revolution or ideas.
• Why not?
• Christianity and its moral and ethical absolutes was
the roadblock to the expansion of Marxism.
• This roadblock was noticed by two Marxist theorists
in 1919: Italian, Antonio Gramsci and Hungarian,
Georg Lukacs.
• These two men decided that the spread of
Communism could only be accomplished if Western
Christian culture was destroyed.
• So Lukacs introduced sex education into the public
schools of Hungary,1919, believing that if children
knew more about sex their lust for it would
overpower their Christian morals!
• So Gramsci and Lukacs laid the groundwork to
change communism from economic terms
(ownership of private property is evil) into cultural
terms. (tolerance, sex ed, drug ed, change, etc.)
• “Change”=depart from old, intolerant ways.
• Then in 1923 at Frankfurt University in Germany the
Institute for Social Research was established=The
Frankfurt School.
• The Frankfurt School moved to New York City in
1933 when Hitler came to power.
• Theorists like Wilhelm Reich, Eric Fromm, Max
Horkheimer, Herbert Marcuse, etc.
• The Frankfurt School invented “Critical Theory”
which had the goal of demonizing all traditional
institutions such as family, fatherhood, patriotism,
Bible-believing churches, traditions, etc.
• The Frankfurt School published Studies in Prejudice
which taught that anyone who believes in
traditional Western Christian culture is prejudiced, a
“racist” or “sexist” or “fascist” or is mentally
• Mixing Freud with Marx, they perfected the
technique of psychological conditioning—thus, for
example, TV shows abortion to be normal behavior.
• TV shows Christians to be crazy, intolerant, bigoted,
judgmental fools.
• Herbert Marcuse, working with Hollywood friends,
became a leading “evangelist” of Cultural Marxism
(Political Correctness) especially on the university
campuses of USA.
• “In his book Eros and Civilization, he argued that by
freeing sex from any restraints, we could elevate the
pleasure principle over the reality principle and
create a society with no work, only play (Marcuse
coined the phrase, “Make love, not war”). Marcuse
also argued for what he called “liberating
tolerance,” which he defined as tolerance for all
ideas coming from the Left and intolerance for any
ideas coming from the
• right. In the late 1960’s Marcuse became the chief
“guru” of the New Left, and he injected the cultural
Marxism of the Frankfurt School into the baby
boom generation, to the point where it is now
America’s state ideology.
• The next conservatism should unmask multiculturalism and Political Correctness and tell the
American people what they really are: cultural
Marxism. Its goal remains that Lukacs and Gramsci
set in 1919: destroying Western culture and the
Christian religion. [see: Wm. Lind, “Cultural Marxism” The
Schwarz Report, vol. 46, No. 4, p 4.]

A single volcano spews more "greenhouse
