The New Order of the Ages - Part 2
The Counterfeit Church
by Berit Kjos
"A graduate of the Union Theological Seminary explained that 'the church of tomorrow will affirm a belief... that ultimate reality is love... Love as ultimate reality will become the central message of the church.'
"The message is love. The vehicle is deception. The reality is destruction -- the destruction of [any Biblical understanding of] God, Church, family, schools and civilization. The Scripture demonstrates that there will be no peace and love without truth, justice and integrity.... But where is the church today that condemns false teachings, heresy, bribery and lying?" James W. Wardner, Unholy Alliances
What about those who will not conform? I wondered. Does this vision of peace mean persecution of those who stand firm in their faith and refuse to compromise?
The UR had already began to collaborate the World Bank, the Temple of Understanding, and UNESCO – all groups with little tolerance for Western Culture and biblical Christianity. These global, occult alliances reminded me of a comment from the UN Commission on Culture and Development’s report titled Our Creative Diversity:
“The need for people to live and work together peacefully should result in respect for all cultures, or at least for those cultures that value tolerance and respect for others. There are some cultures that may not be worthy of respect because they themselves have been shown to be intolerant, exclusive, exploitative, cruel and repressive. …such repulsive practices…should be condemned, not tolerated.”
I was still pondering this twisted view of intolerance when, on my way to the chapel, I stopped to visit the Presidio’s Holocaust museum. One display featured an unidentified voice heard during an actual broadcast from Nazi headquarters in Berlin in the fall of 1938. I shuddered at the message, which seemed all too close for comfort: “The Jews must be driven out. In this new Germany, there will never be dissension between the leader and the people, because the leader and the people are of the same flesh and blood.”
Today's popular vision of a global church leaves no room for the authority of God's Word. The Postmodern church may cling to God's comforting promises, but don't tell its members that the Bible is eternal, unchanging and absolute truth. Too many verses offend the new flocks and conflict with their quest for ecumenical unity and sensual gratification.
The blueprint for the inclusive, tolerant church of the new millnnium for 21st Century spirituality are outlined in UNESCO’s 1994 “Declaration on the role of religion in the promotion of a culture of peace.” You probably haven’t heard of this “soft” international law signed in Barcelona in December, 1994. Yet, its guidelines have spread throughout the world, fueled by multicultural education, interactive technology, books such as the Harry Potter series, the media, movies, television and last, but not least, American churches. As you read these short excerpts from UNESCO's Declaration on the Role of Religion, try to remember where and when you last heard these politically correct attitudes or assertions:
In case you are wondering how UNESCO could possibly be linked to Chicago’s Council of Religious Leaders or to Methodist Bishop Sprague, lets go back to the 1950s. There we see both the roots of religious synthesis ( the blending and blurring of beliefs and convictions through the consensus process) and the hidden partnerships that link church leaders to powerful politicians who carry the “Christian” social and economic agenda into Congress and the White House.
“Religions have… led to division, hatred, and war.”
“Peace entails that we understand that we are all interdependent…. collectively responsible for the common good.”
“Our communities of faith have a responsibility to encourage conduct imbued with wisdom, compassion, sharing, charity, solidarity, and love; inspiring one and all to choose the path of freedom and responsibility. Religions must be a source of helpful energy.”
“We should distinguish fanaticism from religious zeal.”
“We will favor peace by countering the tendencies of individuals and communities to assume or even to teach that they are inherently superior to others.”
“We will promote dialogue and harmony between and within religions, … respecting the search for truth and wisdom that is outside our religion. We will establish dialogue with all, striving for a sincere fellowship….”
“…we will build a culture of peace based on non-violence, tolerance, dialogue, mutual understanding, and justice. We call upon the institutions of our civil society, the United Nations System, governments, governmental and non-governmental organizations, corporations, and the mass media, to strengthen their commitments to peace and to listen to the cries of the victims….”
"We call upon the different religious and cultural traditions to join hands… and to cooperate with us….” [Emphasis added]
BUILD THE FRAMEWORK FOR GLOBAL CONTROL. In 1942, six years before the World Council of Churches was formally launched, its organizers within the Federal Council of Churches held a National Study conference at Wesleyan University in Ohio. Among the 30 delegates were 15 bishops, seven seminary presidents, and eight college and university presidents.
John Foster Dulles, who later became Secretary of State in the Eisenhower administration, chaired the conference. As head of the Federal Council's inter-Church “Commission to Study the Bases of a Just and Durable Peace,” Dulles submitted the conference report. It recommended:
a world government of delegated powers
immediate limitations on national sovereignty
international control of all armies and navies
a universal system of money
worldwide freedom of immigration
a democratically controlled international bank
even distribution of the world’s natural wealth. 
That was 1942! Soon afterwards, Time magazine wrote a summary of the report. In its statement below, notice these words: “a new order... through voluntary cooperation within the framework of democracy or through explosive political revolution.” This solution (“voluntary cooperation within the framework of democracy”) gives us a glimpse of the true meaning of nice-sounding words such as democracy, volunteerism, participation (involving everyone in the consensus process), partnerships, and civil society:
“Some of the conference’s economic opinions were almost as sensational as the extreme internationalism of its political program. It held that a ‘new order of economic life is both imminent and imperative” – a new order that is sure to come either ‘through voluntary cooperation within the framework of democracy or through explosive political revolution.’ Without condemning the profit motive as such, it denounced various defects in the profit system for breeding war, demagogues and dictators…. Instead, 'the church must demand economic arrangements measured by human welfare…'”
In 1943, John Foster Dulles convened another Council of Churches conference. It endorsed “Six Pillars of Peace,” a plea for a world political organization – a United Nations. In his speech, recorded in the Council’s 1944 Biannual Report, Dulles said,
"Interest in this subject had been enormously increased by the declaration of the Moscow conference, which stressed the necessity of creating at the earliest possible moment a general international organization…. People in and out of the churches were urged to 'remain united and vigorous to achieve such [an] international organization.' … This statement, signed by more than 1,000 Protestant leaders, was given to the press and mailed to the President and members of Congress.”
The most infamous of the Council leaders, Alger Hiss, was an active member of the Communist party. That didn’t keep him from serving President Roosevelt both in the State Department and as his adviser at the 1945 Yalta Peace Conference. Nor did it block his acceptance as coauthor of the UN charter and as Secretary General of the United Nations organizing conference in San Francisco in 1945. The Soviet connection may even have encouraged John Foster Dulles to recommend that Hiss head up the multimillion dollar Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Helpful links to high places would speed their agenda.
ESTABLISH THE ONE WORLD CHURCH.
The framework for control is in place. So is the process for managing, molding and monitoring “healthy communities” and “healthy people” around the world. Three centuries ago, this nation offered a shelter – a place of refuge from the persecution that has pursued God’s faithful followers since Christ died on the cross. When our nation shuts its doors to Biblical truth, where will Christians hide?
The answer is simple: in Jesus. The Bible tells us that “all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.” (2 Timothy 3:12). But, in the midst of the struggles, He will fill us with a peace the world can never understand. By His grace, we will stand firm and immovable while demonstrating His gentle love to all who hunger and thirst for the everlasting peace and unity only found in Him.
“Oh, how great is Your goodness,
Which You have laid up for those who fear You,
Which You have prepared for those who trust in You
In the presence of the sons of men!
From the plots of man;
You shall keep them secretly in a pavilion
From the strife of tongues
Blessed be the Lord,
For He has shown me His marvelous kindness in a strong city!
Human Rights legislation has become a political smokescreen for enforcing a global ethic around the world.  The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) -- the basis for the American Convention on Human Rights -- touts the hollow promises of the rising global reign. Therefore it sounds good, as do all the intrusive UN human rights treaties. Article 18 of the UDHR upholds "the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion..." Article 19 affirms "the right to freedom of opinion and expression... and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers."
But Article 29 states that "these rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations." In other words, these "rights" or "freedoms" don't apply to conservatives who refuse to conform to UN policies. The UN, with its regional hierarchies, has shown zero tolerance for those who oppose its goals. Even so, President Clinton, with a stroke of a pen, made Executive Order 13107 (The Implementation of Human Rights Treaties) the law of the land. Based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, it gives the Federal Government authority to establish a massive management system that would implement all human rights treaties whether ratified or not.

repeatFrance Passes Controversial Anti-Cult Law: "A Sunday morning church service in Mulhouse, France where thousands gather in the eastern corner of the country to worship, pray and hear from God is a familiar scene repeated weekly across this country and around the world. But here, where the constitution states: 'France shall respect all beliefs'-- evangelical churches like this one, are under suspicion. Such scenes of absolute devotion to God are increasingly viewed as fanatical, irrational. Some even call this church, the largest charismatic church in the country, a cult. ...
"Now in France, it is very difficult to preach the Gospel," said Peterschmitt...
"'Section I of the anti-cult law makes 'mental manipulation' a crime. Anyone found guilty of causing: 'a state of psychological or physical subjection resulting from serious and repeated pressures or techniques designed to alter judgement faces five years imprisonment,' Picard said. Courts can dissolve religious groups and impose heavy fines.'...
"Easterman [said], "if we want to have children's church, Sunday school, that can be seen as influencing minors. If we do work for old people, it's preying on the vulnerable." See Matt 24:9
The Modern Threats to Religious Freedom: They Are Greater than One May Think: "On the surface, it would seem that Christianity has never been stronger or more influential in this country....
"However... (1) the political authorities have squarely targeted Christians and Christianity for harassment and are freely carrying out their agendas at the present time, (2) the historical legal protections in this country for Christianity have been eroded past the point of no return, (3) most Christians are clueless in understanding this situation, and (4) when Christians do happen to recognize dangers to practicing their faith, they tend to endorse legislative and political actions that in the long run will make things even worse...."

Bible verses regarded as hate literature: "Under Saskatchewan's Human Rights Code, Hugh Owens... was found guilty... of inciting hatred and was forced to pay damages of 1,500 Canadian dollars to each of the three homosexual men who filed the complaint.... Owens, an evangelical Christian and corrections officer, said his ad was 'a Christian response' to Homosexual Pride Week.... Justice J. Barclay wrote in his opinion that the human-rights panel 'was correct in concluding that the advertisement can objectively be seen as exposing homosexuals to hatred or ridicule.'"

U of North Carolina Says It Will Resolve Dispute With Christian Group: "A UNC-CH administrator told InterVarsity in a letter Dec. 10 that its charter violates the university's nondiscrimination policy for student organizations because it requires its officers to adhere to Christian doctrines....
"Scott Vermillion, staff director... of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, said the group has no intention of discriminating. 'We're saying, 'if you're going to be a leader of this organization, you need to believe in what this organization stands for.'"See next link:
Anti-discrimination policy threatens 1st Amendment: "In September, Rutgers banned a Christian group from using campus facilities and stripped the group of university funding because it selects leaders on the basis of religious belief. Rutgers is punishing the InterVarsity Multi-Ethnic Christian Fellowship for violating the university's non-discrimination policy. That policy states that 'membership, benefits and the election of officers' cannot be biased on the basis of race, sex, handicap, age, sexual orientation, or political and religious affiliation.'
"...the anti-discrimination language here would require a Democratic club to allow a Republican president, a Jewish group to allow a Holocaust-denying president.... The real intention is to break or banish religious groups with biblically based opposition to homosexuality." See Preparing for Persecution
Preparing for the Underground Church by Pastor Richard Wurmbrand: "The Underground Church is comparatively unknown. We have it right next-door, but we are not ready to join it and we are not trained for it. ... Even if we do not pass through these tragic circumstances we have a duty to help and to instruct those who do pass through them ...
"We have to know how to resist brainwashing. Brainwashing exists in the free world, too. ... The methods vary, but brainwashing in my Romanian prison consisted essentially of this: we had to sit seventeen hours on a form which gave no possibility to lean, and you were not allowed to close your eyes. For seventeen hours a day we had to hear, 'Communism is good, Communism is good, Communism is good, etc.; Christianity is dead, Christianity is dead, Christianity is dead, etc.; Give up, give up, etc.' You were bored after one minute of this but you had to hear it the whole seventeen hours for weeks, months, years even, without any interruption. ... It is one of the worst tortures. Much worse than physical torture. But Christ has foreseen all things because with Him there is no time. Future, past, present are one and the same: He knows all things from the beginning. Communists invented brainwashing too late! Christ had already invented the opposite to brainwashing - heartwashing. He has said: 'Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.'" SeeBrainwashing in America and Brainwashing & How to Resist It.
The Bible as 'hate literature'? "A prison sentence for quoting the Bible in Canada? Holy Scriptures treated as 'hate literature'? That could happen if a proposed bill is passed by Parliament, according to opponents who believe it would criminalize public expression against homosexual behavior."
Fundamentalism Education Project: "The growing influence of fundamentalist religious movements poses a challenge to our mainstream religious communities, civic freedoms, and our safety and well-being. This phenomenon is of concern to mainstream religious leaders and their congregations because fundamentalists create sharp divisions among communities of faith and pull believers into their fold with fear tactics and inaccurate truth claims. Religious clergy and lay people have immense interest in understanding and exposing how fundamentalists distort the inclusive messages within Christianity, Judaism, and Islam.
"....fundamentalists often portray themselves as rescuing their tradition's authentic and original 'fundamentals' from the onslaught of secular culture, but this 'ancient theology' they purport to re-claim is often fabricated and non-existent.... [It's all in the Bible - see Psalm 119:11]
"Understanding and countering this phenomenon is important for all of us.... The Texas Faith Network is organizing the Fundamentalism Education Project to provide resources for clergy, lay people, activists and others about religious fundamentalism, and to energize and organize religious leaders to rightfully reclaim the compassionate and tolerant foundations within their respective religious traditions." This fits right into UNESCO's Declaration on the role of religion.
Could it happen here? "Here's some of what's been happening at the University of Chicago: A car drove up to a Jewish student on campus and a passenger screamed: 'Death to Jews. Hitler should have finished you all off when he had the chance.' On a public listserve in the Humanities Department, a pro-Palestinian graduate student joked openly about Auschwitz. A Jewish senior was told by a university-appointed preceptor that he couldn't be 'bothered' reading her B.A. paper because it focused on topics relating to Judaism and Zionism. ... Such is life for Jewish students at a major U.S. university." If this is happening to Jews, it will happen to Christians as well. Both are becoming intolerable to our emotional, reactionary postmodern culture. See Preparing for Persecution and Romans 1:22-32
Christmas book banned from class: "Last December, Laura brought a book entitled 'The First Christmas' to school in response to a class assignment. The second graders were told to bring a book to class that represented their Christmas traditions. According to McCarthy, Laura was the only student to bring in a religious-based book and was told she could not share her book with the class." Brave children who have faced persecution
Health care firm guilty of religious harassment: "An Indiana firm, viewed by its founder as God's home health care agency, was found guilty of harassing six employees who did not share the owner's fundamentalist views. A nine-person jury in U.S. District Court awarded about $270,000 in compensatory and punitive damages to six former employees of Preferred Home Health Care and a rejected job applicant.... Witnesses for Preferred testified they never saw any employees demoted or penalized on the basis of their faith.... Employees at Preferred were told it was a Christian company and signed an agreement to abide by its faith-based values.
"For at least some Christian businesses, the jury's ruling could prove troubling. 'If I hired someone and they weren't Christian, I would do everything I could to lead them to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ,' said Bruce Richardson, the president of Exodus Promotions, which publishes a Christian business phonebook.... 'Who's to say that I'm not going to be next?'" See The UN Plan for Your Mental Health
Sweden Moves to Criminalize Opposition to Homosexuality: "The Swedish Parliament has moved to within one step of changing the nation’s constitution to ban speech or materials opposing homosexuality and any other alternate lifestyles. If the amendment becomes reality, violators could be subject to prison sentences. ...
"That means people coming from (the homosexual) lobby group could sit in our churches having on the tape recorder and listen to somebody and say, 'What you're saying now is against our constitution.' She said anyone convicted of violating the constitutional amendment could spend six months to four years in jail."
"'The Swedish example should be a wake-up call to the rest of the world that the real intent is to criminalize Christianity,' Knight said." 2 Cor 4:7
EU law 'could ban' ... the Old Testament (BBC News, 24 April, 02): "People who distribute stories about fictional children's hero Biggles ['a World War I flying ace'] or the Old Testament could be criminalised under a European anti-racism law.... Lord Scott told peers that a proposed framework directive for the harmonisation of EU member states' laws against racism and xenophobia 'would almost certainly cover Biggles'. 'It would probably cover the distribution of the Old Testament as well,' he said...
"Lord Scott was speaking during a debate on proposals for a Europe-wide arrest warrant. He said: 'If any member state creates offences on these lines ... and prescribes three years' imprisonment as a possible penalty, we in this country would be expected to extradite the accused under a European arrest warrant.' Categories of offences such as racism or xenophobia needed to be made 'much more specific'. Plans for a Europe-wide arrest warrant were agreed by ministers in the wake of the 11 September US terror attacks for introduction by 2004.....
"According to Lord Scott, the European Commission's proposals for an offence included 'public dissemination or distribution of tracts, pictures or other material containing expressions of racism or xenophobia'. 'So distribution of, for example, literature containing expressions of belief in race, colour, national origins etc as a factor determining aversion to individuals or groups would be a criminal offence,' Lord Scott argued."

Judge Orders Ten Commandments Plaque Covered: "The initial ruling came after a two-day trial that included testimony from theological scholars and members of the Freethought Society, which describes itself as a group of atheists, agnostics, humanists and others. ...

Suit filed for cross-wearing employee: "The suit contends that Kimberly Draper, who was hired to work at the front desk of the library, was given a dress code policy that read: "No clothing depicting religious, political or potentially offensive decoration is permitted." Manion claims such a policy infringes on employees' constitutional rights. ...It is unbelievable that you can be fired from a job for wearing a cross necklace," said Manion. "That is exactly what happened in this case. The public library system violated the free speech and free exercise of religion rights of our client." Luke 6:22-23
'Ganging up on the 'religious right': "One way the bias shows up is when people of faith are portrayed in news reports as sharing similar, conservative values. That’s why a recent Lexus search showed 651 uses of the phrase “religious right” in the last three months of 2001. “Religious left” was used only 10 times. Does that mean there are no religious liberals?
"When the phrase 'religious right' is used, it’s often given a negative spin. One way that’s done is to lump everybody on the 'religious right' with its most extreme members. ...... In the mainstream media, too often it’s acceptable to make negative comments about Christians that never could be made about any other religious group." See The Mainstream Media and Preparing for Persecution
Demonizing religion: "Democrats will accuse the Republican Party of being out of the mainstream because it is under the control of the "religious right," a force within America that mirrors the bigotry of the Taliban.... As vicious as this seems at first glance, it should come as no surprise. For more than 40 years, the heathen left have successfully executed a systematic, step by step dismantlement of a structure of morals and values carefully put in place to protect the history, heritage and cultural identity of America.
"Our books, movies, art, television and music are a unified chorus of smut and anti-social messages. We curse in public places; the media make celebrities of serial murderers; our children are taught about condoms in the third grade; the Boy Scouts are under attack to embrace atheists and homosexuals; the family is being legally undermined; churches are pressured to rewrite scriptures to accommodate those who are proud of their transgressions... and bewildered taxpayers are told they have no choice but to pay for liberal propaganda, blasphemous art and pornography on public television. ...anything having to do with religion, particularly the symbols and ideas of the Christian religion, has been treated like an unhealthy contamination, and systematically exorcised out of what has come to be called the public (as opposed to the private) sector." SeeMatt 24-9 and The UN Plan for Your Mental Health Redefining 'terrorism' threatens our liberty: "In the Dec. 17 Newsweek, Anna Quindlen draws first blood in her column 'The Terrorists Here at Home.' What 'terrorists' does she refer to? Abortion opponents, whom she characterizes as ultraviolent. Quindlen writes: 'There's no real ideological difference between these people and the people who flew planes into the World Trade Center....' By blurry implication, she tars the entire pro-life movement as violent ... She tells us that abortion clinic workers face "a single-minded cadre of men who believe that their religious convictions justify violence, destruction and the murder of those whose choices they abhor.' ...
"Americans must scrutinize the anti-terror measures this nation legislates. Only individuals committing or planning violent acts should be targeted – never individuals who are nonviolent but hold some kindred views. Guilt by association is tyranny's scythe."
Christianity Under Siege: The Stones Cry Out: "...It is revealing to think that Democrats could even consider attacking Republicans because of their purported association with the Christian right. For the left and the leadership of the Democratic Party to insinuate that the Christian right is comparable to the Taliban is typical and unconscionable. These folks will never understand that such a policy is a misuse of free speech. In their politics and policies they really do believe that the end justifies the means. How Hegelian, how like all the "isms" that destroyed millions of people in the 20th century.
"The trouble is that they will not see any evil in what they do. They are, after all, the enlightened. As long as the end result is 'good,' anything goes. The 'enlightened' now include the mainstream press, progressive politicians of both parties but especially Democrats, academe, multinational tycoons like Ted Turner and George Soros, and the coterie of globalists who look upon organized and orthodox Christianity as evil and in the way. ...
"Conservatives and most Christians are loath to challenge them lest they be painted with the broad brush of newspeak and political correctness. Names like racist, sexist, homophobic or whatever works are used in order to silence Christians. That kind of intimidation has worked before and it is working again in our own time.
"A little name calling, however, is actually good for Christians. It makes them grow stronger. But persecution never just stops at name calling. That is the way real persecutions begin.
"Around the world, Christians not only are being subjected to name calling, they also are being denied basic rights. They are being killed or forcibly converted to Islam. In the United States they are one way or another being forced to convert to a brand of secular humanism gleaned from Hegel, Marx, Freud, Marcuse, Gramsci, Dewey, Maslow, Rogers and Darwin and the entire pantheon of secular gods. If they are not converted, they are silenced in a thousand subtle and not so subtle ways. ..." See Preparing for Persecution, Luke 6:22-23 and The Mainstream Media
Christians a 'hate group': "Much of the manual prepared by President Bill Clinton's attorney general, already used to indoctrinate an untold number of law enforcement agencies in this state, has stirred disquiet in the ranks of the West Virginia Family Foundation.... Under 'hate group ideology' identification, for instance, it is written, 'Homophobia recently has been added to their agenda.' ...The same section identifies some hate-mongers as those who 'blame the federal government, an international Jewish conspiracy or communism for most of this country's problems.'
"What disturbs McCoy and people like him most is the next sentence: 'Some groups include apocalyptic Christianity in their ideology and believe we are in, or approaching, a period of violence and social turmoil which will precede the Second Coming of Christ.' Unless Reno and Sheridan can show otherwise, McCoy takes this to mean anyone with a literal interpretation of the Bible, especially in regard to scriptures on prophecy, is part and parcel of a hate group....
"Under motivation, the manual says hate crime offenders feel led by 'a higher order,' and, in parenthesis as examples, God is grouped with Adolf Hitler and the Imperial Wizard.... McCoy said the lumping of hate crime law opponents with Nazis and Klan groups is advocated by homosexuals in a book, 'The Overhauling of Straight America.'"
"Another catch phrase which has crept into the vocabulary of hate crime law advocates is 'domestic terrorism.' An 8-hour course, billboarded on the West Virginia State Police Academy, is titled simply 'Domestic Terrorism,' and topics advertised are 'philosophies of hate and anti-government groups,' and threats such people pose."

The unreal war (Joseph Farah):
"The ideology we are fighting, according to Friedman, is not Islamism; instead it is 'religious totalitarianism.... a view of the world that my faith must reign supreme and can be affirmed and held passionately only if all others are negated.' The ideology Friedman calls 'pluralism' is actually a religious view more accurately called 'secular humanism.' It doesn't, as he suggests, 'embrace religious diversity,' but instead attempts to impose its own religious ideology on the world in the name of 'pluralism.' It is every bit as intolerant as bin Ladenism....
"Whether he realizes it or not, what Friedman actually did in his essay is declare war on Christianity – including the very biblical Christianity responsible for the true pluralistic society America established under the authorship of the founders. More specifically, he declared his own humanistic jihad on Jesus Christ Himself. By Friedman's definition, Christ would have to be characterized as a 'religious totalitarian,' because it was Christ who said in John 14:6: 'I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.'" Matt 24:9 and the first item in Media Bias
Birthday In Court: "Our daughters were taken away from us totally against our wishes and without our consent (which is illegal !). At that moment ALL our parental rights were taken away. That is not what they tell you. They tell you that all you need to do is cooperate with them and maybe you will get your kids back. They smile and tell you its all in the best interest of the child, and they are just there to help… all smiles and cute, cuddly toys. IT IS A LIE! The law states they cannot terminate parental rights before one year has passed. In reality they do it the moment they take your child."
June 2001"Perhaps the time has come to question the motives of some home-schooling parents. Are the parents protecting their children from a cesspool of bad values in the outside world? Or are the parents just people who can't get along with others? Are they 'taking charge' of their children's education. Or are they taking their children captive?
An iceberg is out there of religious intolerance: "In certain areas of the Pacific Northwest, churches cannot construct new buildings or even expand their facilities. An Orange County, Fla., ordinance does not allow for a religious gathering of any kind in a residential area. Thus a small prayer meeting cannot be held in a private living room. Recently, a Vermont couple was denied their request for vanity license plates. The reason, their choice of ROMANS5 and ROMANS8 might be offensive to others.... If the seeds of persecution are being sown in the humus of present intolerance, why do so few seem concerned? There are no easy answers, but at least three possibilities exist: Acceptance, Preoccupation and Complacency." Matt 24:9. See also The Travesty of Tolerance
Questioning the motives of home-schooling parents: "America's most famous home-schooling parents at the moment are Andrea Yates and JoAnn McGuckin. Yates allegedly drowned her five children in a Houston suburb. McGuckin was arrested and charged with child neglect in Idaho. Her six kids barricaded themselves in the family's hovel when child-care workers came to remove them....
"Yates and McGuckin are, of course, extreme cases and probably demented. But a movement that insists on parents' rights to do as they wish with their children gives cover for the unstable, for narcissists and for child-abusers."
As one might expect, the media will use these two tragedies to limit parental rights and speed public approval for more state control.See Comment and The Mainstream Media---Forging a New Consciousness (also posted in "control" and "media")
Religious Coalition Warns of Free Speech Threat: "A coalition of Orthodox Jews and Christians warns that freedom of speech and belief is being destroyed in the name of tolerance.'

Home prayer breaks county Ordinance "What's ironic, the same people could meet and watch Monday Night Football and that's ok," said attorney John Stemberger.

Judges rule against home-schoolers: "The North Carolina Court of Appeals ruled in a split decision that the parents of a 2-year-old "streaker" should have complied with a social worker's demands to enter the home and privately interview all their children." In light of today's unjustified removal of children from homes by social workers across the country, this ruling is frightening. Once taken by the state, children are kept in foster homes for months and years while parents have little power to reunite their family.
White House: No-pray zone. "Secret Service boots out students who asked God to bless president."
Report details global religious persecution. Matt 24:9
Poster With Picture of Jesus Lands Kindergartner in Court: A kindergartener "was assigned to draw a poster relating to his class' study of environmental issues. He drew people picking up litter, children holding hands around the globe and a picture of a white-robed man kneeling in one corner." The teacher censored it. "He didn't follow the teacher's instructions despite given two opportunities to do so," said the school's lawyer. "It's unfortunate, but the school has particular curriculum standards it must enforce." Interesting that the new "curriculum standards" bans drawings of Jesus. Luke 6-22-23
Eight-year-old should have "checked her religion at the door"
Hostility Toward Religion: Can the Lions Be Far Behind? "In San Francisco, the government officially pronounced the Truth in Love campaign, which shared the gospel of Jesus Christ with homosexuals, [to be] hateful rhetoric." See Clinton's War on Hate Bans Christian Values ["...you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake." Matt 24:9
School rejected girl's religious valentines: "A school that allowed students to exchange valentines featuring Britney Spears and boy band 'N Sync violated a second-grader's constitutional rights by rejecting her homemade cards celebrating Jesus."
Founder of French Seminary Speaks Out On Pending Legislation to Outlaw Evangelical Christian Work: "...someone came on our Bible college campus and put a rag down one of the student's gas tanks and lit it on fire. Four cars blew up. ...some of the students have not been able to get bank accounts. We wanted to build a church on our own property, our Bible college property, and the government refused us..." [John 15:18-21 explains why.]
French Legislation Threatens Religious Freedom
Some 165,000 Christians Will Die for Their Faith This Year
"We see this persecution as natural," the source inside Laos told Baptist Press. "We're not praying that the government will change. We're just praying that they (Christians) would have moments during this persecution when they can have fellowship with other believers, maybe in jail. Pray for God to give them an extra measure of His grace during this time."
Persecution linked to the United Nations (May 2000): When the United Nations declared Luang Prabang, Laos, a World Heritage City many local people felt proud of the honor. Now the world would celebrate their local history. What's more, they would receive the international as well as local funds needed to restore the old Buddhist temples, cultural relics and spiritual traditions. But since the government views Christianity as a threat to their culture, it is now "forcibly removing Christians from this area using the United Nations as an excuse....
"The authorities approach a village and block the entrances and exits. They then determine who is a Christian in the village. Those they find are forced to recant their faith in Jesus or compelled to leave their villages. They are denied their possessions and livelihood...." ( The Voice of the Martyrs Magazine, November 1999)
A world blinded by the deceptive promises of globalist leaders has little appreciation for Memorial Day, American sovereignty or the freedom God gave us in America. The United Nations has planned changes that will change all the rights and freedoms we take for granted. Some of the new rules, regulations and "responsibilities" will be announced at the Millennium Summit ( September 6-8). For a preview, you may want to see the preparatory report from the UNA-UK Millennium Hearing.
Remember, the mastermind and official UN reformer behind Kofi Annan is Maurice Strong. (See the last part of World Heritage Protection" - UNESCO's War Against National Sovereignty) To understand the meaning behind nice-sounding UN terms such as Human Rights, read Trading U.S. Rights for UN Rules

April 29, 2002- Executive Order http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2002/04/print/20020429-2.html
When the Federal Government holds each state "accountable" for meeting top-down "outcomes" determined by the World Health Organization (WHO), it violates the 10th Amendment. Holding the purse strings and setting the standards, it assumes the power to govern the states. Showing "respect" rather than submission to the Constitution, it manipulates both the intention and the rule of the law. Clinton's revisedexecutive order on Federalism set the stage. It redesigned and redefined the relationship between states and the White House, and the executive branch has been taking full advantage of its new powers.
The re-interpretation and eventually eradication of the concept of right and wrong which has been the basis of child training... these are the belated objectives of practically all effective psychotherapy....
When the other [infectious diseases] were attacked at the preventative level, some martyrs had to be sacrificed to the cause of humanity.... The problem is no longer the germ of diphtheria, but rather the attitudes of parents who are incapable of accepting and using proven knowledge for the protection of their children. (15)
"...individuals who have emotional disabilities of their own, guilts, fears, inferiorities, are certain to project their hates on to others... They are a very real menace. .. Whatever the cost, we must learn to live in friendliness and peace with... all the people in the world.
