Never heard of him, but thanks to Brad for
introducing us to "Bob Wallace" --
READ from this section which is halfway down
One of the lies that people believe in, a
Strange God they worship, is environmentalism.
For those who believe in it, it is a religion,
although they don't see it as one. They see it as the truth,
separate from religion.
The writer Michael Crichton has called environmentalism
"the religion of choice for urban atheists," and has
labeled it a "perfect 21st century remapping of traditional
Judeo-Christian beliefs and myths."

Search. Compare. Save.
In the Bob Wallace piece that the newly installed
Bishop of Tome (as in "tome") Pontifex Bradimus gave
us, Mr. Wallace describes C.S. Lewis' description of Hell.
"...everyone is perpetually
concerned about his own DIGNITY and advancement, where everyone
has a GRIEVANCE and where everyone lives the DEADLY SERIOUS passions
of ENVY, SELF-IMPORTANCE and RESENTMENT."
It is manifestly evident that this particular
Hell is a tailor-made container for the Late Members of the wack-job
Liberal Left --
Because the wording so exquisitely describes
the nihilistic culture of hyper-sensitivity and faux-grievance
and faux-affront which the spoiled, ME-generation whiney-ass
NATION-reading pinky-red-diaper-Doper-baby-Left has bequeathed
to us over the past twenty years.
I stand my ground on this one, for the greater
numeric majority of hard-Left-trendies have chosen to employ
their own God-given liberty to become dedicated dope-heads during
some part of their earthly careers.
Or as Johnny Caspar puts it in the opening
dialogue of one of the best "small movies" ever made
(MILLER'S CROSSING) --
"I'm talkin' about character.
I'm talkin' about -- hell, Leo, I ain't embarassed to use the
word -- I'm talkin' about ethics."
Also read 100's of glowing reviews at AMAZON.

From the same article:
"One of the things I
decided a long time ago is that religion will never be gotten
rid of, contrary to the claims of the materialists and the secular
humanists (both of which are themselves religions). For one thing,
as far as I am concerned, everything is religion. Some are just
better than others. Others aren't worth anything at all."
As I understand it, religion is gradually
becoming a phenomenon of the past. New ways of cognizing and
connecting to the spiritual world are evolving. For this reason,
traditional "Old Age" religion (as opposed to New Age)
has a tendency to become reactionary, violent, lethal, endorsing
bombs and lethal injections and the busting of trade unions and
No Free Lunch for Anybody and so on. Jesus was a bleeding heart
liberal, feeding five thousand for nothing.
To declare that religion is here to stay forever
is a desire to keep us all trapped in the darkness of the Middle
Ages forever. No folks, religion is on the way out the door,
and occultism is coming. The fundamentalists will be waiting
with their guns loaded.
The one and only redeeming aspect of the Religious
Right is their wish to protect the lives of unborn children.
Everything else is death and violence. If you're gonna make an
omelet, you have to break some eggs, and casualties just
come with the territory.
Here is another quote from the above article
that looks suspect:
"And let us certainly not forget that
the World Trade Center collapsed prematurely because the builders
were not allowed to spray asbestos on the upper floors. To "save
one life" from non-existent asbestos poisoning we lost 3000.
That's not a fair trade to anyone but environmentalists with
heads full of voodoo."
What global warming and the "greenhouse
effect" is concerned, the theory was seriously challenged
several years ago by a couple of Danish researchers who claimed
that the idea of human-made global warming is pure superstition,
because the temperature changes on this planet are controlled
by cosmic rays and sun spots. This is extremely interesting,
but the issue is too politically charged to handle. The next
20-30 years may establish which theory is right. Perhaps they're
ALL wrong for all I know, because - unlike many others who get
involved in this controversy - I refuse to let any political
color influence my understanding of scientific research.
So seriously, I don't think medieval religionism
and charges of voodoo is helpful to our understanding of Greenpeace.
Happy 2004 everybody,
