THE CUTTING EDGE

NEWS BRIEF: "Pledge Declared Unconstitutional", by David Kravits, Associated Press, June 26, 2002, Washington Post.com.

"SAN FRANCISCO –– A federal appeals court ruled Wednesday that the Pledge of Allegiance is an unconstitutional endorsement of religion and cannot be recited in schools. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a 1954 act of Congress inserting the phrase "under God" after the words "one nation" in the pledge. The court said the phrase violates the so-called Establishment Clause in the Constitution that requires a separation of church and state."

Before we contemplate the horror of this ruling, let us examine another article:

NEWS BRIEF: "Pledge of Allegiance Ruled Unconstitutional", http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,56310,00.html, June 26, 2002.

"SAN FRANCISCO — The Pledge of Allegiance is unconstitutional and should not be recited in public schools because it includes the words 'under God', a federal appeals court ruled Wednesday. In its 2-1 decision, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a 1954 act of Congress that inserted the phrase "under God" after the phrase "one nation" in the pledge."

Doubtless you were just as shocked as I was when I read this headline! Even though Cutting Edge has been warning for years that America is systematically dismantling its National Christian Values Foundation, and replacing it with a Satanic Values Foundation [Seminar 1, "America's Leadership of the New World Order"], I was shocked when the final pillar of national commitment to God was laid low today.

One of the most Liberal District Courts in the nation was chosen to make this announcement today. Right now, the nine Western states covered by this court must order their schools to discontinue saying the Pledge of Allegiance. Now, other courts, both Federal and State, may use this ruling as a precedent to issue their own orders along the same lines. Yes, the U.S. Supreme Court may reverse this ruling, but the unthinkable blow against our National Sovereignty has been struck!

Public outcry was immediate.

" 'The president's reaction was that this ruling is ridiculous,' White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said."

The 9th Circuit Appeals Court explained its decision.

"A profession that we are a nation 'under God' is identical, for Establishment Clause purposes, to a profession that we are a nation 'under Jesus,' a nation 'under Vishnu,' a nation 'under Zeus,' or a nation 'under no god,' because none of these professions can be neutral with respect to religion," Judge Alfred T. Goodwin wrote for the three-judge panel."

From nearly the beginning of the 1954 insertion of this reference to "God", the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that a child may elect not to recite the Pledge of Allegiance if they disagree with the reference to God; thus, an atheist, a Buddhist, or a Hindu may decide not to recite this pledge. You can forget the mantra that the judges created this decision today because they were trying to protect people who did not believe in God; these people have never been forced to state this Pledge.

What this insertion to God into the Pledge signified was that the United States of America was a nation that predominately worships God, or as President Esienhower stated, "The Almighty"; thus, just as this was a sign that America worshipped "God", this rejection today signifies exactly t the opposite: America the nation no longer worships "God", at least the God of the Holy Scriptures.

What this decision means in the life of this nation is that we have completed the process of throwing the God of our Forefathers out of our national life. To most Americans throughout our history, this God was the God of the Bible.

No nation who rejects the God of the Holy Bible lives long to tell about it. Listen to God's warning:

"But if any nation will not hear and obey, I will utterly pluck up and destroy that nation, says the Lord." [Jeremiah 12:17]

God could not get more plain than this dire warning! America has been rejecting God in her national life at least since the 1963 Roe vs Wade abortion decision and the Public School Prayer ruling. Since then, Americans have become more and more pagan in her values, more and more hard hearted and callous in her dealings with others, and have allowed themselves to be led by the gods and goddesses of hedonism up the slaughter ramp leading to the New World Order, the Kingdom of Antichrist.

Therefore, America has committed both offenses God complained that Israel had committed -- and He destroyed her for it! This nation has rejected the one true God of the Holy Bible, and has dug religious cisterns that cannot hold water because they are cisterns of false gods and idols. Today, about one-third of all Americans practice New Age Religions to some degree and our sports heroes spout forth the wonders of these false gods. Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, and others practice Transcendental Meditation and are encouraging millions of adoring fans to do likewise.

Other Americans are worshipping at different false religions, of idols. One of the most important idol is economic: our finances, our retirement accounts, and our Materialistic way of life. Tens of millions today are so caught up with this type of false god that they are literally consumed with how their investments are doing, and how far up the corporate ladder they have climbed.

For others, sports is their idol. Something is really wrong when this nation's churches are mostly empty on Sunday mornings, but we weekly fill 70,000+ capacity sports stadiums. Christians are chastised if we follow our Bible closely, because no one wants a fanatic on their hands! Yet, we laugh and encourage sports "fans" -- word taken from "fanatic" -- when they pack in the stadiums, when they dress crazily and act like madmen.

EMBRACING SATANIC VALUES, ATTITUDES, AND GOALS

Americans have gone very far down this road of rejecting God and embracing Satanic values, so far that Americans probably could overwhelmingly accept Antichrist when he arises, especially if the nasty, narrow-minded Christians were taken in the Rapture at about the same time.

But, you protest, I do not worship Satan, and neither do any of my friends. Ah, yes, but Satan is clever and hides your worship of him, at least in the beginning. Let us examine The Satanic Bible to see what the values of Satanism are. Anton LaVey, the founder of the Church of Satan in 1966 and the author of this "Bible", says:

"The seven deadly sins of the Christian Church are: greed, pride, envy, anger, gluttony, lust, and sloth. Satanism advocates indulging in each of these 'sins' as they all lead to physical, mental, or emotional gratification." [Page 46]

When you carefully consider this list of Satanic values, do you not find they are the values by which Americans live their lives today? You see, a person can be a Satanist by just ordering their lives by these values, even if they never join a coven, sign their names in blood, or participate in a ritual by the light of the Full Moon!

America has gone long down this road to embracing the satanic values as espoused by The Satanic Bible. We are embracing these values at just exactly the same time in world history that prophetic signs by the bushel basket are being fulfilled together, at the same time, just as Jesus had foretold. Therefore, we can only conclude that this values-change is coming at just the right time for Americans to accept Antichrist when he arises.

THIS RULING JUST THE FIRST STEP

At this moment, many well-meaning people will protest that I am overreacting just a tad bit over this news. After all, this ruling did not come through the U.S. Supreme Court, and many notables are already speaking out against it. You would be right if you were thinking this. However, when you consider that this ruling is probably the first step in the Six Step Attitudinal Change Plan, you might find more reason to be concerned. I believe this ruling did kick off the Six Step Plan. Let us review it now:

SIX STEP ATTITUDINAL CHANGE PLAN

Step 1. Some practice so offensive that it can scarcely be discussed in public is advocated by a RESPECTED expert in a RESPECTED forum.

Step 2. At first, the public is shocked, then outraged.

Step 3. But, the VERY FACT that such a thing could be publicly debated becomes the SUBJECT

of the debate.

Step 4. In the process, sheer repetition of the shocking subject under discussion gradually dulling its effect.

Step 5. People then are no longer shocked by the subject.

Step 6. No longer outraged, people begin to argue for positions to moderate the extreme; or, they accept the premise, challenging, instead, the means to ACHIEVE it.


This insidious method of changing the deeply-held attitudes of people is being successfully directed toward the American population as a whole. Millions of people are experiencing attitudinal changes on a wide variety of subjects today. This attitudinal change is essential to achieving the New World Order. Remember, this plan is designed to subtly, almost invisibly, change people's attitudes and values, so that, once their attitude is changed, it will seem to the victim that they arrived at this new change completely on their own, with no outside influence! Such a person will get very angry if you suggest their new value was imposed upon them by outside forces.

With the way this Plan works in the hearts and minds of all citizens firmly entrenched in your minds, let us review some of the many ways in which it is being used today to move American Values from Christian to Pagan. {Taken from NEWS1055}

This ruling represents Step 1 and the beginning of Step 2. The "offensive subject" is the ruling itself, i.e., that the Pledge of Allegiance itself is unconstitutional! The Judges making this decision are the RESPECTED experts and the bench upon which they are sitting is the RESPECTED forum. These respected judges, speaking from their respected offices, ruled that the Pledge of Allegiance is unconstitutional!!

And why? Because it contains a religious word, "God". Forget for a moment that believing in, or mentioning, "God" is not synonymous with Jesus Christ. We explain this Biblical fact in NEWS1071 and NEWS1072, entitled, "American TV Depicts The God of Freemasonry, Parts 1 and 2", respectively. If you are not familiar with this fact that the "God" referred to on our money and in our Pledge of Allegiance is not the God of the Bible, nor is he Jesus Christ, please stop reading right now to read these articles. Once you understand this concept, you will better understand this current event, and many others as well.

Nevertheless, these RESPECTED Judges speaking from their RESPECTED forums, have declared a very controversial concept, one they know will produce an immediate backlash! Immediately, Step 2 begins to kick in. People are outraged! What did our feature article from Fox News say?

" 'The president's reaction was that this ruling is ridiculous,' White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said."

NEWS BRIEF: "Appeals Court Rules Pledge of Allegiance Is Unconstitutional", Star Tribune, June 27, 2002, http://www.startribune.com/stories/484/3018541.html

"Stunning politicians of both parties, a federal appeals court ruled for the first time Wednesday that reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools is unconstitutional because of the words "under God," added by Congress in 1954 ... On Capitol Hill, Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, D-S.D., called the decision "just nuts." House members gathered on the front steps of the Capitol to recite the pledge en masse, and senators angrily stopped debate on a defense bill to unanimously pass -- 99-0, with Sen. Jesse Helms, R-N.C., absent -- a resolution denouncing the decision. In Minnesota, John Chronic, a special education teacher in St. Paul who is a Republican candidate for state representative, began circulating a petition to support the pledge. By evening, he had more than 200 signatures, he said.

" 'One hundred percent of the people I've talked to were against the court ruling that came down today,' he said."

People are outraged! And they begin to speak up and act out, just as this Six Step Plan wants them to do!

So, you can see that President Bush immediately called this ruling ridiculous, as have many other politicians and Talking Heads. But, many other politicians, and other Talking Heads, will find much in this ruling that pleases them. Step 2 is the immediate emergence of the two sides of debate -- 1) Defenders of the Status Quo, i.e., those who want to keep the Pledge of Allegiance as is; and 2) Advocates of Change.

In this Star Tribune article, we read the reaction from Bush and other politicians angrily attacking this ruling; however, this same article quotes a person in full support of the ruling. Listen:

"August Berkshire, president of Minnesota Atheists, which has 300 to 400 members, said the ruling is a victory for the First Amendment and for all Americans. 'We finally got a court to agree what every atheist has always known -- that God is a religious term'." [Ibid.]

Thus, we have the debate setting up nicely, just as the Six Step Plan envisions.

As the debate begins to rage, the focus of the debate will subtly begin to change. Gradually, the subject will shift from the merits of the subject itself, usually moving to a discussion as to how mature we all are that we can even discuss this subject. However, I have seen the debate shift to other side issues associated with the debate itself. This shift in focus of the debate constitutes Step 3.

Step 4 is the constant battling between the two opposing sides. This step is the really critical one, as it represents the heart and soul of the Hegelian Dialectic Process. This Hegelian Rule states that "Conflict Brings About Change", and that "Controlled Conflict Brings About Controlled Change". Step 4 is the "Controlled Conflict" stage that is depended upon to create the "Controlled Change" so desired. Now you can see the importance of subtly changing the focus, the frame, of the debate.

In Step 4, the Illuminati does not care if its proponents are outdebated by the opponents of the change, for they have discovered that, what is critically important is that the citizens hear the debate over and over again. Every time they hear the debate, some people will change their minds in favor of the radical change! The people whose attitudes could be changed to support the radical change, even if the opposition has badly outdebated the proponents, are those people whose values were never firmly based in the first place. Those citizens who just want to get along, or who support their government right or wrong, are the people whose attitudes will be changed to support the radical proposition, no matter how the debate goes.

Step 5 will soon follow the completion of Step 4. People will have heard the debate so many times, said in so many ways, they are no longer shocked by the subject. As soon as people's attitudes have been worn down, Step 6 will come in like a flood to knock down the opposition of most other American citizens.

Step 6 -- This step may be accomplished through a great crisis. We know that a great combination of multiple crises are planned to produce Antichrist [Read articles at http://www.cuttingedge.org/news/ww3.html for full details of this complex crisis plan]. The completion of Step 6 of this controversial issue may just wait until this combination crisis hits with full force.

PULLING YOUR CHILDREN OUT OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS

Joseph Farah of WorldNetDaily surprised me this morning with his reaction to this ruling. Farah says that this ruling demonstrates the overwhelming need to pull your children out of the morass that has become the Public School System. In making this point, Farah has some very interesting things to say. Listen:

NEWS BRIEF: "The pledge ruling", by Joseph Farah, WorldNetDaily, June 27, 2002.

"My reaction to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling on the Pledge of Allegiance is a little different than most of those you will read or hear elsewhere.

Is it a correct ruling? No.

Is it a ruling that has anything to do with the Constitution? No.

Is it unexpected? Not by me. To me, it was just a matter of time.

Let's remember that in 1962 and 1963, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that prayer in the schools was unconstitutional. The fact that it took nearly 40 years for the other shoe to drop is something of a surprise."

In this last remark, Farah is entirely correct; this ruling is simply the other shoe dropping from the 1962-63 Prayer rulings. The emphasis is on our belief in a monotheistic Supreme Being, a rather unfortunate belief when Antichrist is coming with his Polytheistic Religion.

Since Farah brought up this linkage to the Public School Prayer ban, I think we need to go full-circle on this thought. In the past few years, prayer has been allowed back in many Public Schools, but the type of prayers allowed are from pagan gods and goddess, not the Christian prayer kicked out in 1962. Might the same thing happen to this Pledge of Allegiance? We shall just have to wait to see.

Now, let us return to Farah:

"We can yell and scream about this all we want. But it won't change the direction of this country. I say it's time to call their bluff – and make their whole unconstitutional system fall of its own dead weight.

"What do I mean? Every American outraged by this ruling should not even raise a whimper of protest. They should not argue. They should not complain. Instead, they should remove their children from these ungodly, hostile government schools. They should do it now. They shouldn't wait until the situation gets any worse. Home school is the best option. For those who can't do that, choose a worthy private institution. It will be the best choice you ever made for your children. There are 10,000 reasons for making this choice."

We have been advocating since 1989 that caring parents need to remove their kids from Public Schools, and a great number of them have done just that. In fact, the numbers of parents educating their children at home is so huge it has spawned a very large and sophisticated Home Schooling industry. Only within this Home Schooling Industry -- plus private Christian Schools -- can one find textbooks that actually teach, using techniques proven to be effective.

Farah continues:

"I say let the atheists have the government schools. Let the homosexuals have them. Let the socialists have them. Let them fight out the curriculum issues with the Muslims. Jews and Christians should get out now.

"What will they have? Not much. Meanwhile, your children might actually get educated.

"If responsible Christian and Jewish parents did this all over America tomorrow, it would set off a revolution in this country. Gone would be the multi-billion-dollar Department of Education boondoggle. Gone would be the condom education. Gone would be the sexual propaganda and the moral relativism. No way tens of millions of parents are going to continue to be soaked in taxes for schools they don't use. Not only will your children be liberated, the whole country would be." [Ibid.]

During the time just before the East German Communists built the Berlin Wall, millions of East Germans were marching across the border into West Berlin, causing President Eisenhower to quip that the East German people were "voting for freedom with their feet". This type of protest is exactly what Farah is advocating, and it would be so effective that Bush and Congress would really get serious in legislating Home Schooling and Christian Private Schools out of existence. President Clinton attempted to do this on several occasions during his administration, so it is a likely scenario if Farah gets his way.

However, Farah has hit upon a very important issue: Public Schools have become the moral cesspool in which homosexuality is being taught, socialism is being advocated, sexual revolution is propagated, and the moral absolutes of the Bible are being thrown out with sophisticated arguments designed to convince many an immature mind. Oh, yes, and Public Schools are also teaching "Muslim sensitivity" training. Karl Marx -- the first public figure to advocate Public Schools -- would have been very proud of what his Public School System has become.

However, this ruling also strikes a very different blow.

PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE -- HEART AND SOUL OF NATIONAL SOVEREIGNTY

One of the major goals of the Illuminati is to remove a love of country from the hearts of Americans. As the United States gradually leads the world into the global government, economy, and religion of Antichrist and his False Prophet, nationalism stands mightily in the way. Time and time again, I have seen New World Order authors lament how formidable nationalism is proving to be. In fact, these authors boldly state that the progress to this new global system is being stopped dead in its tracks by a love of one's country.

Therefore, "end run attacks" have been mounted to slowly undermine sovereignty. When the 10 Super Nations were created [Read NEWS1002 for full details], the nations created were economic nations and their structure was built as a superstructure over the top of the existing political nations of the world. Thus, no one in any nation even noticed that Biblical prophecy was being fulfilled, nor did they complain too loudly because they detected no change in their immediate situation. However, the plan that would eventually replace national governments was set in place between 1992-1996. Illuminist leaders believe that, once a change in the economics of a nation are set into place, the corresponding parallel political change is inevitable.

When President Reagan refused to get us out of the United Nations as he advocated during the 1980 election, he set the stage for American presidents to begin to rehabilitate and build up the United Nations. Former President H.W. Bush began this process when he refused to go to war against Iraq until he received proper United Nations backing; when he initiated war, he did so according to United Nations resolutions. When he refused to allow our forces to topple Saddam Hussein, he cast his explanation in terms of United Nations resolutions, stating that these resolutions did not actually authorize the toppling of Hussein, but merely to oust Iraqi forces from Kuwait. Finally, after the Iraqi War, Bush led a delegation of Heads of State to the United Nations Security Council, at which they voted to create a permanent military for the U.N.

On many occasions, President Clinton gave the standing and authority of his office to the United Nations. President Bush likewise trooped dutifully to the United Nations to explain his war on terror and ask for its support.

These are "end run attacks" on our sovereignty, and you could think of many more such instances whereby Clinton and Bush have used the power and authority of their office to strengthen the United Nations in the minds and hearts of American citizens. Their goal is to produce Global Citizens, not fervently patriotic American citizens. The Public School System shares this same goal.

The only exception to this sorry record is the patriotism deliberately encouraged after the 9/11 attacks. President Bush needed this outpouring of patriotism to swing Americans solidly behind his anti-terrorism agenda. History will record that this outpouring was an exception to the trend of the era.

This ruling that the Pledge of Allegiance is unconstitutional strikes at the heart of this issue of national sovereignty, of love for one's country. Even if the U.S. Supreme Court overturns this ruling, the blow has been struck that begins the Six Step Attitudinal Change Plan that will, over some years, produce the level of support for this issue so ardently desired by the Illuminati.

Thus, America has crossed a huge line with this ruling: They have further thrown God out of our national life and they have begun the process of gradually changing enough minds to finally produce a majority of citizens who are Global Citizens, not American patriots. And, the Public School System churns out millions of youngsters every year who have been educated in this global mindset.

The time of the destruction of the United States of America just took a large step forward with this ruling. The time of the End of the Age continues to march inexorably to its planned conclusion.

Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.

If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.

If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.

If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.

We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.

Finally, we would love to hear from you.
