Al Gore Promoter of Doomsday Cult?
By: Sharon Hughes
Okay, this picture is funny, but some take the comparisonÂ seriously.
The Wall Street Journal had an article a few months back when Harold Camping predicted the end of the world would occur on May 21, 2011, called Camping the “Christian Al Gore.” Why?
Because the former Vice President is more and more being seen as part of a new doomsday cult that has grown out of the Green movement.
While there are environmental issues we should be concerned about, as Marc Morano of Climate Depot pointed out onÂ my radioÂ showÂ this weekÂ , some Green devotees are using the movement to promote a radical agenda that includes population control, and exploiting people of color in third world countries, insisting on putting solar panels on grass huts!Â
The most recent green doomsday scare has been Global Warming, which in former years was thought of as a scientific theory, but today promoters like Al Gore are taking it over the edge, resulting in some Green advocates publically stating that Gore’s ‘apocalyptic’ claims are beyond even their belief. For example, as The UK Guardian’s Leo Hickman, a prominent media activist for man-made global warming, said:
“I was a little nervous this morning logging into Climate Reality…And, I have to say, my heart immediately sank, is Gore now a help or hindrance to global warming cause? I have suffered this torture too many times over the years…[Gore's show had] slide after slide of extreme weather events…& linking everyone, it seemed, to rise in [man-made] emissions…that is a very contentious peg on which to hang your hat…”
And two German scientists, following Gore’s recent ‘climate reality show’ called his latest claims ‘apocalyptic’ and his ‘promise of salvation’ disturbing.
Apocalyptic? Promise of salvation? Are they going too far with their criticisms? Perhaps a basic definition of what a cult is can help answer the question:
A Cult: controls its members’ beliefs & behavior; dictating what they accept as ‘the truth’, and who they associate with (only those who with the same beliefs); and strongly promote their leaders as having superior knowledge, and if you disagree with them you are labeled.
There are those who take this talk of Al Gore promoting a cultist-type adherence to climate change as untrue, or merely ‘tongue in cheek,’ but there are those who take his beliefs more seriously, because they take him at his word, such as he writes in his book, “Earth in the Balance,” promoting a religious duty to be ‘green’…
“The challenge before the religious community in America is to make every congregation – every church, synagogue and mosque – truly “green” – a center of environmental study and action. That is their religious duty.”
Chapter and verse please?
