The are hospitable to "NEW proselytes" not to anyone who is already a Witness to asks questions beyond the reach of Watchtower publications.
They throw people out whose very thinking is eccentric, even if their behavior conforms both to the letter and policy of the Watchtower Society.
That is my experience.
Here, this is too important to let slip. I realize GHWBsr favors the Moonie Church, which is highly conformist and dictatorial, as a worldwide
Never mind, that Christianity FREES the individual from social contracts, so that he or she can apply the Golden Rule, tolerance, mercy and charity in
harmony with their own will.
The Bush Cabal, the NWO and the UN want to FORCE ideas on everyone, TOP-DOWN that totally direct behavior. This is merely one tyranny on top of all
United Nations Report
New Moses for the masses
December 9, 2002
Who other than a Communist icon would think he could claim the right to replace the Ten Commandments?
At the United Nations, the Earth Charter is now officially recognized in the Chairman’s Draft Political Declaration. Mikhail Gorbachev and company
have been trying to introduce it since at least 1997.
Catholic Insight writer M. Jeanne Ferrari says she heard Gorbachev say twice, at two different press conferences: "The Ten Commandments are out of
date. They will be replaced by the 18 principles of the Earth Charter."
"He said it again, a third time, at another press conference. Speaking through an interpreter, Gorbachev spoke candidly abut his hope for the
implementation of the Earth Charter, which had been drafted by Maurice Strong, ably supported by Stephen Rockefeller. Apparently, at the first State
of the World Forum, Gorbachev had stated that the new world order would be achieved ‘step by step, stone by stone.’ In Rio, Gorbachev and company were
just thinking about the design of the new order:
"’Experience in various countries is being gathered,’ he said. "The advanced countries should take advantage of the new openness to work with
others, and should share their technological expertise with the world’s population, thus working toward a global village.
"'What model (of one-world government) are we pursuing?’ he was asked.
"'The model will be a form of democracy or parliamentary body. There are many forms of democracy. The Communist idea of Utopia was one and we all
know the result of that experiment,’ he said. "’Now, the West is trying to impose Western values and religion on the whole world. We should not
impose a blueprint on the world (except, of course, for the Earth Charter-Edit). We should strive toward unity in diversity, taking into account the
unique qualities of each country. Nor should we be so involved with domestic issues that we forget the problems of other nations."
"With regard to the economy--and more specifically a global economy--Mr. Gorbachev was not optimistic. "'Will national economies disappear to give
place to a one-world economy?’ "'This is unclear,’ he said, "Although he supports globalization, his attitude toward a global economy shifted
during his press conference: ‘We must ensure that there are new ground rules for solving many problems.
"'We have come to a point where man’s intervention in nature cannot continue. Within 40 years at the latest (he said) changes in the biosphere will
be irreversible. Nature has a mechanism for self-regulation. We cannot change this. We can only incorporate ourselves, restrict the activities that
interfere with this, or nature will have to live without us. We must restrict or limit our consumption and reassess our way of life.
"'Until now we had the Ten Commandments; now we have a new set of ‘ecological commandments," the Earth Charter. "'It is a powerful document,’
said Gorbachev, ‘that will express a consensus toward common goals. Its importance will come from the authority from which it derives… "In Rio, he
urged the press to publicize this. Now, five years later in Johannesburg, it has moved forward into the Chairman’s Draft Political Declaration!
"The second draft of the Charter referred to the Earth as our Mother, in terms that one outspoken delegate called ‘a love letter to our mom’.
''The Earth Charter has come a long way. It came to life as a document, on letter-sized paper, brought down by hand, from the 23rd floor of the
Sheraton Hotel on Ipanema Beach, Rio de Janeiro, in 1997 by Gorbachev and company. Today it is a document on glossy 14x17 paper, ensconced in a
gilt-covered ‘Ark of Hope’, made of cypress, decorated by Vermont artists, and borne into a conference at the World Summit on Sustainable Development
in Johannesburg, is now immortalized in the Chairman’s Draft Political Declaration. Thank God, reason prevailed, and paragraph 13 was completely
rewritten omitting the Earth Charter, deprived therefore of the hoped-for legitimacy."
