Before yesterday when President Donald Trump invoked it, when was the last time you ever heard the name of the Creator at the United Nations?
God having been driven from the UN, the children’s classroom and the Public Square, the president’s address yesterday was like a breath of fresh air wafting through the bureaucracy’s staid and stale Manhattan headquarters.
God’s name is anathema at the UN as it is in much of the secular world the UN now controls.
False gods and their destructive Marxist messages live rent-free at the world’s biggest bureaucracy, which now counts on indoctrinated school children to continue the Climate Change scare.
Thanks to a president progressives want to impeach, we now know that Christians being killed daily don’t have to wait for the world to end within the next eight to twelve years due to Climate Change because they are dying daily all for “following the teachings of Jesus Christ”—a situation far scarier than the prospect of Climate Change killing off all inhabitants of the world.
This was a true-life factoid laid out by President Trump to a body far more concerned about that bogus killer known as man-made Global Warming/Climate Change than they are about the persecuted believers of the planet.
President Trump told all gathered at this year’s UN Summit: “Today, with one clear voice, the United States of America calls upon the nations of the world to end religious persecution.”
“We’re standing up for almost 250 million Christians around the world who are persecuted for their faith. It is estimated that 11 Christians are killed every day for the following — I mean, just think of this: Eleven Christians a day, for following the teachings of Christ. Who would even think that’s possible in this day and age? Who would think it’s possible?”
Polite applause was rendered to the president from the hopelessly politically correct summit attendees, who were far more interested in what 16-year-old climate change activist Greta Thunberg had to say.
People love being frightened, and don’t even step up when their children are being abused by needless fright.
“The United States is founded on the principle that our rights do not come from government; they come from God, Trump reminded the assembly.
“This immortal truth is proclaimed in our Declaration of Independence and enshrined in the First Amendment to our Constitution’s Bill of Rights. Our Founders understood that no right is more fundamental to a peaceful, prosperous, and virtuous society than the right to follow one’s religious convictions.
“Regrettably, the religious freedom enjoyed by American citizens is rare in the world.
“Approximately 80 percent of the world’s population live in countries where religious liberty is threatened, restricted, or even banned. And when I heard that number, I said, “Please go back and check it because it can’t possibly be correct.” And, sadly, it was. Eighty percent.”
The president made it clear to the assembly that it isn’t only Christians being persecuted worldwide:
“As we speak, Jews, Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, Sikhs, Yazidis, and many other people of faith are being jailed, sanctioned, tortured, and even murdered, often at the hands of their own government, simply for expressing their deeply held religious beliefs. So hard to believe.”
The president’s words are backed by action. Adding to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last year hosting the “first-ever” Ministerial to Advance International Religious Freedom group, and this year’s creation of the International Religious Freedom Alliance—an alliance of likeminded nations devoted to confronting religious persecution all around the world, his administration is introducing another first— The United States formation of a coalition of U.S. businesses for the protection of religious freedom.
“This is the first time this has been done. “This initiative will encourage the private sector to protect people of all faiths in the workplace,” the president said.
“Too often, people in positions of power preach diversity while silencing, shunning, or censoring the faithful. True tolerance means respecting the right of all people to express their deeply held religious beliefs.”
It is not only people’s right to believe that gets them persecuted, but their right to worship.
“Today, I ask all nations to join us in this urgent moral duty”, the president continued. “We ask the governments of the world to honor the eternal right of every person to follow their conscience, live by their faith, and give glory to God. The United States has a vital role in this critical mission.”
There is, of course, no guarantee that the UN will turn back to God from their Gaia religion, a religion that worships ‘Mother Earth’ rather than the Creator, or no guarantee they will ever turn away from their overzealous adoration of all things ‘green’.
But some things in the Climate Change Movement have changed, dramatically.
The once Al-Gore led Climate Change alarmist regime has now been handed over to school children.
In delivery of a warning that was more sulk than message, 16-year-old teen activist Greta Thunberg told the assembly: “I should be in school.”
Climate Change is not killing off people, the persecution of people of faith is
And so, too should the millions of children called out of school to protest Climate Change on city streets.
Not every teen activist can sail the ocean like a conquering princess in a solar ship accompanied by Princess Grace of Monaco’s grandson.
Not every child in poverty-stricken nations can afford to go to school.
Meanwhile, Climate Change is not killing off people, the persecution of people of faith is.
God isn’t welcome at the UN and hasn’t been for a long, long time.
