Skip to comments.UN document would give 'Mother Earth' same rights as humans [Gaia cult gaining adherents]
Posted on 04/12/2011 10:10:28 AM PDT by Constitutionalist Conservative
UNITED NATIONS Bolivia will this month table a draft United Nations treaty giving "Mother Earth" the same rights as humans having just passed a domestic law that does the same for bugs, trees and all other natural things in the South American country.
The bid aims to have the UN recognize the Earth as a living entity that humans have sought to "dominate and exploit" to the point that the "well-being and existence of many beings" is now threatened.
The wording may yet evolve, but the general structure is meant to mirror Bolivia's Law of the Rights of Mother Earth, which Bolivian President Evo Morales enacted in January.
That document speaks of the country's natural resources as "blessings," and grants the Earth a series of specific rights that include rights to life, water and clean air; the right to repair livelihoods affected by human activities; and the right to be free from pollution.
It also establishes a Ministry of Mother Earth, and provides the planet with an ombudsman whose job is to hear nature's complaints as voiced by activist and other groups, including the state.
"If you want to have balance, and you think that the only (entities) who have rights are humans or companies, then how can you reach balance?" Pablo Salon, Bolivia's ambassador to the UN, told Postmedia News. "But if you recognize that nature too has rights, and (if you provide) legal forms to protect and preserve those rights, then you can achieve balance."

What IS in the water in Bolivia?
Maybe the high altitude in parts of the country has placed their brains under an added gamma ray dose from space?
Ah, the pagan worship of the erdgeist, as Thomas Carlyle pointed out, so prominent in the socialist agenda.
Violation of separation of church and state.
Possibly a residual from all those pagan nazi's that Bolivia granted haven to.
Some of the worst polluters in history were the Eastern-bloc countries during the Cold War.
In honor of that day and Mother Earth (peace be upon her), I'm going to gather up discarded tires.......and burn them.
I get foaming at the mouth angry when I read this sort of thing. People trying to push earth worshiper laws that openly make humans subservient to nature.
“If you want to have balance, and you think that the only (entities) who have rights are humans or companies, then how can you reach balance?” Pablo Salon
There is no balance you fool! Man is at a constant rivalry with other animals and living things. They are gifts and resources we use as we see fit. Earth worshipers are asking for holy war with the monotheists. I like to see them push this in Islamic countries.
The Apostle Paul:
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible manand birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. 24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
Direct opposite of what the Bible teaches, namely, that man is to dominate the earth and all creatures on it. But then again, we don't exactly live in thriving, enlightened Christian times, that's passe now. The new "light" is the darkness of mankind's pride and stupidity. It's interesting though, to ponder 'who', (or 'what'), is behind these sick, anti-biblical ideas. If you look with a Christian mindset you can almost see the spiritual battle between good and evil, angels and demons, raging throughout the world. From Hollywood's most popular movies to children's cartoons, demonic looking beasts are all the rage of the day. Science, technology and medicine are worshipped everywhere, while God is an afterthought.
Perhaps this is why the thug Obama can manipulate so many people with "health care" scares. As though he, and not God, will determine the quality of your life and the day you will die. Nothing happens by chance, there's a reason for everything. You drive God out of the world and His eternal opponent steps right in and earth worshipping, ego centric scum like the global warming alarmists, these Bolivian bosses and the thug Obama are introduced into power to snatch away all that is right and good.
That was the exact passage that I was thinking about!
Satire...please tell me this is satire...
So a cow having flatulance will be a UN offense.Obama is for all of this UN global communism garbage and people on this forum waste time cry babying about primaries of people that are not even running???
***...having just passed a domestic law that does the same for bugs,...***
Does this mean that you can’t kill bed bugs? Guess I’ll just have to cancel my trip to Bolivia.
If the Lenin spouting granola munchers drink a cup of java harvested by exploited workers, at their local Starbucks that is built on fragile earth soil, won’t they be violating the basic rights of Mother Gaia??
Nope, not satire. Related: http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2011/apr/10/bolivia-enshrines-natural-worlds-rights
Got that right. The idea that these communists are now all about protecting Mother Earth is laughable beyond imagination. Obviously, it's another way they figure they hammer us which means Obamao will be leading the charge on it.
Not the water, but many people, including the crackhead president Morales, chew cocaine from the leaf.
Captain Planet Rampage (flash animation)
everyone in Bolivia is brain dead from chewing cocoa leaves!
“Mother Earth the same rights as humans”????
—that would leave them with precious few rights.
I think Mom Earth deserves better......
The not-so-hidden Agenda here of course is to further
strip humans of their rights FOR THE SAKE OF Mother Earth
(or more specifically, for the ultimate power and authority of those who would devise and enforce those ‘rights’.
It’s actually been going on full-force for quite some time.
Here’s a thought: drown the fever swamps in DDT. The bugs will be put out of their misery in no time.
OW! Damn, I just pulled a face muscle rolling my eyes...what unmitigated idiocy.
Of course, the eco-freaks are always quick to quote Revelations 11:18:
"And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth."
Yeah, we have a "Progressive" eco-freak TV minister out here in Missouri. His name is Larry Rice. He's got his own HDTV transmission tower and broadcasts his Renewable Energy message 24 hours a day.
He's pretty quick to quote that verse from Revelation when making a point about stewardship of the Earth.
His eco-channel (he broadcasts on two channels; one is mainly social-christian programming, the other is his renewable energy channel) is HERE
It’s actually “corrupted the earth” - “qui corruperunt terram” from the Vulgate.
This is also taken out of context.
It’s not those who corrupted the earth as in pollution, but those who lead people away from God.
Never trust a pagan to interpret the bible correctly.
The people of this world need to worry about their souls..God will take care of the earth!
Too much coca leaf. Mixed with Marxism.
Can we tax it?
Companies have no rights, Pablo.
And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
I think Mother Earth would be complaining to God instead: "Why do so many idiots and evil people inhabit me?"
God replies: "Don't worry. It's just temporary."
And now they are China and India.
>”Never trust a pagan to interpret the bible correctly.”
I’ll give you an “Amen” to that, brother!
... without the faked "science" data, the thinly veiled income redistribution scheme, the crooks sucking up ridiculous amounts of cash and the loss of individual and creative sovereignty.
Is that too much to ask?
Dan 11:36 KJV - And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.
Dan 11:37 KJV - Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.
Dan 11:38 KJV - But in his estate shall he honour the god of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.
Armenia under the USSR and the destruction of Lake Baikal come to mind.
