U.S. Senator Protests Climate Talks With Activist Who Believes The UN Is The Anti-Christ

Source: Think Progress

Senator James Inhofe (R-OK), the lead Republican on the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, held a climate-denial press conference at the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change on Thursday. Accompanying Inhofe were two rather questionable characters: an activist who believes the UN is starting the apocalypse and a British Lord who was banned from all UN climate conferences for impersonating the representative from Myanmar.

Inhofe’s first guest, Cathie Adams, is the President of the Texas Eagle Forum and former Texas GOP chair. She must have felt quite uncomfortable speaking at a United Nations function, as she has maintained for over a decade that the UN was the anti-Christ’s vehicle for stealthily taking over the world. From a 1999 newsletter:


"The Bible tells us that in the end times there will be a world government headed by a world leader, called the anti-Christ, who will profess a world religion, but did you ever think you would live in the day when these things would come into being? That is exactly what the United Nations is doing behind the backs of most Americans."

Adams has singled out environmentalism as part of the UN’s sinister agenda, suggesting a fictional UN Pledge of Allegiance would require “worshipping the Earth.” She also believes, among other things, that the CO2 emissions do not cause climate change and that vaccination is a plot to steal American freedom.

Hmm, so how goes Republican efforts to appeal to the mainstream? Lets see, they are still holding middle class tax cuts hostage and now they are relying on religious zealots as experts on climate science.

7. I fervently agree with you, patrice...

... only that it is not ALL of Christianity. It's the right wing religious fundamentalists, the "evangelicals", the ones who wear their religion on their sleeves. The ones who REALLY want to control the world, and cram their religion down everyone's throats. They want the end of the world to come. They're zealots. And totally crazy. If we deny environmentalism, take the earth for granted, the end of the world will come.

They live in a religious fantasy world all of their own. It's a religion gone too far, gone amuck.
They are the creationists. They don't believe in effing SCIENCE!!!!

They came to the fore in our government with Ronald Reagan. And I believe it's been their goal all along to obtain control of our country, and in the end, the world. This is their last grasp.

8. And I agree with you.

I am a Liberal Christian myself, because I don't think the universality of truth is threatened by whatever labels we put on it.

Love really IS the answer.

14. Their rapture theology is a lot like this:



Note, the card can be kept until needed or sold. In other words, they won't have to pay for their crimes, not now, not ever. And that they get it out of the Community Chest.

They expect to buy their way off planet to escape the devastation that they are causing. They are the most irresponsible people the world has ever known. That's why they make up so many lies about other people, to divert attention.

I also call how they wear their faux faith on their sleeves their Get Out of Hell Free card.

16. "Get-out-of-Hell-Free" card...

...it's funny, but then it's not. Yeah, they think they can buy their way out of anything. But that card is going to burn up, where they are going to after life. I always told my Mom: "Ha, won't they be surprised when they don't show up at the Pearly Gates?"

4. The Eagle Forum.

Started by this person:


That's right. That's Phyllis Schlafly, the woman (a lawyer, no less) who made the case against the Equal Rights Amendment by claiming that women an men would have to -- Horrors! -- share bathrooms.

Yes. She's still alive and she is still spewing her religious right rubbish.

How such a horrible person even has a voice in this country is astounding to me.

Fuck them all!

24. She was so foul during the ERA campaign, it was the first time I heard my FDR-loving aunt go off.

She was 70 and made plain her hatred of what Schafly was doing with some of the saltiest language I'd ever heard before or since. And I am quite knowledgeable about that stuff, LOL.

5. What's wrong with worshipping the earth?

It's the only earth we have. God would want us to respect his creation and take care of it.

I don't get these loons who have something against environmentalism and continue to deny climate change.

9. So seeking a global solution to a global problem makes the UN the Anti-Christ.

It's bad enough that someone spews such nonsense. She can't possibly believe what she's saying can she? I assume she is just pandering to the gullible in the base.

11. Isn't the UN/Anti-Christ thing one of the aspects of the "Left Behind" series?

Remember when Bill Clinton was the anti-Christ? Now some members of the GOP greet him like a long, lost buddy.

12. Perhaps it's Capitalism that's the Anti-Christ

 

I see as much if not more evidence for Capitalism being the AntiChrist as there is for Christianity, that is "Organized Religion", being one of the evil incarnates we were warned about. Ultimately though it's systemic and personal Corruption at the root of evil that we fight with Laws & Regulations. Money & Corruption are the common denominators though. Just how effectively stereotypic Christians & others on the Right cognitively deal with these facts is a cultural shaming to humanists like me.

18. Might have known that Loony Lord Monckton would be involved in this somewhere

As I said in a post some time ago:

'Lord Monckton, one of the last politically active hereditary peers, and a former advisor to Maggie Thatcher is perhaps the best example (of a nutty UKIP-er). He is best known for climate change denialism, but also is generally a 'British teabagger' type, who actually has addressed Tea Party meetings in America, and has said of his aims for British politics: "leave the European Union, close down 90 per cent of government services and shift power away from the atheistic, humanistic government and into the hands of families and individuals". He is also a quack, who claims on the UKIP website to have developed a broad-spectrum cure for infectious diseases, including 'Graves’ Disease, multiple sclerosis, influenza, and herpes simplex VI'.

He also once said that the 2009 UN conference on climate change would bring us a Communist world government!'

Inhofe sounds just as nuts.
