A Dream Come True For Al Gore

And a nightmare for those of us still resisting the junk science of global cooling global warming climate change imminent anthropogenic (but particularly American and conservative led) global meltdown chaos theory.

Please excuse the brevity of this post, but (1) the day job is kicking my tuckus, (2) this piece of news is so monumentally stupid that thinking about it is giving me a headache and (3) I’m pretty confident that no-one here needs my help in dissecting the lunacy of this ruling.

Fresh out of the United Kingdom today comes news that,

Judge rules that green views are the “same as religious beliefs” as sacked environmentalist wins legal battle.

Yeah, you read that right.  Though we’ve long known it, the faith dimension of the environmentalists has been fully recognized by the UK judiciary.  Does this mean that Al Gore can now officially be equated with the Son of God?

Cue the opening of the floodgates for a veritable sh*tstorm of entirely frivolous and wholly unnecessary lawsuits in the UK, not to mention reams of new legislation covering enviro-worship and affording these persecuted modern day prophets/martyrs with the protection of the State.

Once again, the UK is the trailblazer in setting moronic, not to mention insanely self-destructive, trends.

So how long will it be before this judicial masterpiece makes its way across the pond?

I’m an ex-Brit and escaped the lunacy there 31 years ago, they were just getting warmed up back then.

Have no fear, Ruthie is ON IT!!

“Our island or lone ranger mentality is beginning to change,” Ginsburg said during a speech to the American Constitution Society, a liberal lawyers group holding its first convention. Justices “are becoming more open to comparative and international law perspectives,” said Ginsburg, who has supported a more global view of judicial decision making.

Ginsburg cited an international treaty in her vote in June to uphold the use of race in college admissions….Last month, Ginsburg and Justices Sandra Day O’Connor and Stephen Breyer discussed the death penalty and terrorism with French President Jacques Chirac during a European tour.

Ginsburg said Saturday that the Internet is making decisions of courts in other countries more readily available in America, and they should not be ignored.

And the takeaway quote of the day…..”Not surprisingly, conservatives are upset by the trend.”

Let’s face it, we have known all along that Green politics is a religion. It has been obvious from the start.

Hmmmm…

Does the corralary also hold true then? That they cannot discriminate aginst those of us who do NOT hold that Religious View? That they can’t make fun of us either?

Pretty soon? No one will be able to talk about anything in Britain…

Essentially what the judgment says is that a belief in man-made climate change and the alleged resulting moral imperative is capable of being a philosophical belief and is therefore protected by the 2003 religion or belief regulations.”

It’s official now .. AGW is a religion .. at least in the UK

They are green…

OK, here is the plan, if you chose to accept it.

We need to agree with this ruling, convince the left that it is a religion, then once we hook them, we need to use their tactics, Separation of Church and State.

They will not be able to teach their religion to our kids, they will not be able to push their religion through government means.

They do have to freedom to believe and pray as they believe.

If it’s religion then they can’t teach it in schools, right?

But they can now all wear choir robes!

You know, there do seem to be a few strong parallels between Christian teachings & Green dictates. It is a tactic of fear. Failure to personally comply with these teachings lead to eternal hell on earth. Hell is a place of overwhelming, unrelenting HEAT that lasts forever. If you do not conform, that is your eternal destiny. BTW, giving them a serious chunk of your money can ease your conscience considerably heh.
