"Cardinal Pell's speech described concerns about global warming as "hysteric and extreme". He says these worries are a symptom of pagan emptiness. Cardinal Pell says in the past, pagans sacrificed animals and even humans in vain attempts to placate the gods but today they demand a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions."
Pretty funny! There is so much in the way that leftists/feminists/environmentalists think and act that demonstrates that the post-Christian world has retreated to paganism. They don't believe in the myths and stories of the Bible, but they happily believe (with religious fervor) in a great many other baseless things (recycling glass matters, gun control works). I'm just thinking out loud here, but here are some of the beliefs, sacraments and sacred texts of the neo-pagans:
God has been replaced by Mother Earth (Gaiea).
The sacraments include recycling and abortion. Maybe I should label them dogma, since they can never be questioned. "We value diversity" is a great incantation to protect yourself with. Another protective incantation is "No always means No, no matter how softly said." Buddha and Ganesh are proper statuary. One must show adoration for all cultures except for white, Western culture (which really is no culture at all anyway).
Sacred texts: A People's History of the United States by Howard Zinn, The Wretched of the Earth by Frantz Fanon, anything by Noam Chomsky.
I'm sure there are many more examples. Please add to this compilation of sacred dogmas, sacraments and texts of the post-Christian neo-pagans. Thanks in advance!
