A Religious Global Council and Planetary Court

Less than four years ago, most of the world and most Americans had never heard of the man now called Pope Francis. Yet, in less half a decade, he has become an international celebrity as well as a world religious and political leader. Even news reporters appeared stunned at the size of the crowds that turned out to catch a glimpse of this man. Religious leaders from all denominations, including so-called evangelicals on both the right and the left, praised him. 

Pope Francis is a radical leftist who embraces many of the fascist, communitarian ideas as we have already discussed. Yet, while in America he was praised and embraced by numerous “evangelical” leaders. I also noticed something else about Pope Francis and his visit to America. It seems that Religious Right groups either praised Pope Francis or stayed quiet during his visit. The silence of some would suggest that the religious right wants to go after liberal democrats, but when Pope Francis preaches his radical environmentalism, anti-capitalism, and global governance at the United Nations and before the U.S. Congress, many of the “warriors” of the Religious Right were missing in action. Could it be that, at the end of the day, most of the Religious Right in America are not really interested in truth or the Gospel but in money and power? Could it be that most of the rabid right rabble rousers did not refute the false gospel of the pope and his radical globalist agenda because they did not want to offend their Roman Catholic donors? Could it be that the “conservative” right has little to no concern for biblical truth and the biblical Gospel? Lip-service, it would seem, can also be silent.

In his address before a joint session of the United States Congress on September 24, 2015 Pope Francis praised Dorothy Day. If you’ve read Religious Trojan Horse, then you know about the worldview of Dorothy Day. While the term communitarian is thought to date back to the 1840’s, communitarianism has been made popular in the twentieth century by Dorothy Day, a Roman Catholic who published the Catholic Worker Newspaper, a mouthpiece for communitarianism and social justice causes. 

Pope Francis also honored Thomas Merton, an American Catholic monk who promoted New Age Eastern mysticism. Through many of his 70 books, Merton is known for promoting Buddhism as well as contemplative. 

Along with New Age socialists, Pope Francis also praised by many so-called Christians and “Christian” leaders. And anyone who took issue with Pope Francis in social media was immediately attacked, even by non-Catholic who simply “love the message of Pope Francis.” 

As we have already discussed, Hitler was perhaps the original promoter of what is called sustainable development today. Yet, Pope Francis offered the opening address for the Sustainable Development Conference at the United Nations on September 25, 2015. Francis continued promoting the same globalist propaganda he trumpeted in his June 2015 encyclical. Yet, a radical New Age, population control “scientist” stands behind Pope Francis and his encyclical. 

The June 18, 2015, Sydney Morning Herald reported the following:

[quote] When Pope Francis seeks advice, one doesn’t hesitate to respond—even if you’re a German professor of theoretical physics who had been baptised as a Protestant and is no longer an active member of the church. “The Pope is interfering in the writing of my book,” Hans Joachim Schellnhuber jokingly told visiting Australian journalists on Tuesday, just days before he was to help unveil the pontiff’s controversial encyclical on climate change in Rome. [end quote]

Like Pope Francis, Schellnhuber also attacks free-market capitalism and private property, as explained in Peter Hannam’s article:

[quote] Careful not to reveal details of the new doctrine—which sat covered amid piles of notes for his latest book in his Potsdam office—Professor Schellnhuber said he shared the pontiff’s concerns about global warming and how it would affect especially the poor and the wider environment. “It is the consumption of the upper and middle classes that is destabilising the climate, and it’s not the quest of the poor to have some access to resources, like clean water,” the professor said. “It’s not poverty that is destroying the planet, it’s wealth. [end quote]

As to his views on population control, numerous media outlets reported on Schellnhuber’s 2009 speech in which he declared:

[quote] In a very cynical way, it’s a triumph for science because at last we have stabilized something—namely the estimates for the carrying capacity of the planet, namely below 1 billion people. [end quote]

Schellnhuber also proposes an Earth Constitution, a Global Council, and a Planetary Court to enforce the Earth Constitution, apparently to punish those who harm mother earth. Can you say, “global Religious Reich”? Author and researcher William Briggs, who has poured over the white papers and books of Schellnhuber, summarizes Schellnhuber’s various ideas this way:


  • The Earth Constitution would transcend the UN Charter and identify those first principles guiding humanity in its quest for freedom, dignity, security and sustainability;
  • The Global Council would be an assembly of individuals elected directly by all people on Earth, where eligibility should be not constrained by geographical, religious, or cultural quotas; and
  • The Planetary Court would be a transnational legal body open to appeals from everybody, especially with respect to violations of the Earth Constitution.

Gaia Worship and a Return to Babylon 

As discussed earlier, religious, economic, and political trends are leading the world back to Babylon and the occult religions birthed at the Tower of Babel as revealed in Genesis 10 and 11. the connection to the mother/son cult through the Church of Rome, then, should not come as a surprise when expressed through the pronouncements of Pope Francis and his scientist friend, Hans Schellnhuber, who promotes the worship of Gaia (a.k.a., Semiramis, a.k.a., the queen of Babylon). 

In another article entitled, “The Scientific Pantheist Who Advises Pope Francis,” Briggs reveals this Gaia earth worship agenda of Schellnhuber:

[quote] The Gaia Principle, first advanced by chemist James Lovelock (who has lately had second thoughts) and microbiologist Lynn Margulis in the 1970s, says that all life interacts with the Earth, and the Earth with all life, to form a giant self-regulating, living system. This goes far beyond the fact that the Earth’s climate system has feedbacks, which are at the very center of the debate over climate change. In the Gaia Principle, Mother Earth is alive, and even, some think, aware in some ill-defined, mystical way. The Earth knows man and his activities and, frankly, isn’t too happy with him.This is what we might call “scientific pantheism,” a kind that appeals to atheistic scientists. It is an updated version of the pagan belief that the universe itself is God, that the Earth is at least semi-divine — a real Brother Sun and Sister Water! Mother Earth is immanent in creation and not transcendent, like the Christian God. What’s this have to do with Schellnhuber? In the 1999 Nature paper “‘Earth system’ analysis and the second Copernican revolution,” he said, "Ecosphere science is therefore coming of age, lending respectability to its romantic companion, Gaia theory, as pioneered by Lovelock and Margulis. This hotly debated “geophysiological” approach to Earth-system analysis argues that the biosphere contributes in an almost cognizant way to self-regulating feedback mechanisms that have kept the Earth’s surface environment stable and habitable for life.

Geo-physiological, in case you missed it. Cognizant, in black and white. So dedicated is Schellnhuber to this belief that he says “the Gaia approach may even include the influence of biospheric activities on the Earth’s plate-tectonic processes.”  Not the other way around, mind you, where continental drift and earthquakes effects life, but where life effects earthquakes. He elaborates:

"Although effects such as the glaciations may still be interpreted as over-reactions to small disturbances—a kind of cathartic geophysiological fever—the main events, resulting in accelerated maturation by shock treatment, indicate that Gaia faces a powerful antagonist. Rampino has proposed personifying this opposition as Shiva, the Hindu god of destruction." [end quote]


William M. Briggs also agrees that Pope Francis and the Vatican is pushing a population control agenda:

[quote] Austin Ruse discovered a 2009 talk in which Schellnhuber said the earth “will explode” due to resource depletion once the population reaches 9 billion, a number that the UN projects in 2050. Presumably he wants earth to avoid that fate, so he must support the population control that Pope Francis so clearly repudiated in his encyclical. [end quote]
