Seems more like a sign of the end times

Not a marriage made in heaven

Preview-1Apparently we are at the threshold of a new Church…and the beatification of the future “St. Saul Alinsky”.   As the Cardinal says, reported in this P.W. Adams article at Gateway Pundit  “it’s a sign of the times”.  Excerpt:

*Ugh* Catholic Cardinal Pushes “Sustainable Development”; Says Gov’s Role To Reduce Gap Between Privileged And Majority

The current trend of combining religion, business, governments around the globe, and the radical Climate “church” should be concerning to anyone who values liberty. The dangers of Agenda 21’s push for worldwide Sustainable Development is well documented . . .

Catholic World reports that Catholic leaders recently held an international forum on economic growth and environmental sustainability in Rome. During the event Cardinal Wuerl made a disturbingly socialist argument for Sustainable Development . . .

“Government has a role, and we clearly need strong international agreements. But in moving ahead, business and economic interests necessarily play a significant role,” he said.

“We need to harness that wisdom and creativity in the service of the common good. Such collaboration aligns private and public interests, and reduces the gap between the privileged minority and the world’s great majority.”

He referred to the issue of sustainable development as a “sign of the times…”

Anytime you hear “government has a roll to play”  devoid of specificity;  “public -private partnership”; “sustainable development”  consider it a stalking horse for government picking winners and losers, crony capitalism,  taxpayers assuming all risk, political corruption — and those are the best implications.  The evolution is government takeover, because when such collusions fail economically, as they can be expected to do,  more government is the answer.

The Church bureaucracy, rather than doing their job and promoting charity, is hip deep in such social welfare partnerships as the collusion works to pay their salaries, and as such the bureaucracy has a vested interested in and supports more and more government.

Speaking to government to protect religious freedom is a necessity. Speaking to government to protect rights to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness is the best guarantee of prosperity and social justice. Speaking to government to control more of peoples lives endangers social justice.

We will venture to guess that the Catholic and “mainstream” Protestant clergy are dominated by those who want government run health care. This article appeared yesterday in the London Telegraph with reference to Britain’s National Health Service, the model for social justice in health care delivery often touted by such clergy.

Elderly face NHS discrimination under new UN death targets
Elderly people will be treated like second-class citizens and denied medical care under new targets which give priority to saving the lives of young people 

Under the proposed Sustainable Development Goals, UN member states will be given targets to cut the number of deaths from diseases like cancer, stroke, diabetes and dementia by one third by 2030.

However because many are age-related illnesses people who succumb to those diseases from the age of 70 are not deemed to have died prematurely and so are not included in the target.

In an open letter published in The Lancet, an international group of ageing specialists say the new guideline sends out the message that health provision for younger groups must be prioritized at the expense of older people.

Only in a Marxian worldview is such utilitarian “cost/benefit’ determinations considered social justice. Clergy will respond “it won’t happen here!” and  “that is not our intent.”  But it is inevitable under the hubris of managed societies and grand governmental schemes  determining what is sustainable, constricting human ingenuity.

    Our Constitution prohibits the state from establishing a religion. Time for a class action lawsuit?
