Earlier this year, the president claimed that under his leadership, the world has become less violent than it has ever been. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest followed up a month later by claiming that the administration has “substantially improved the tranquility of the global community.”
This, of course, caused raised eyebrows among those of us who have been paying attention to flashpoints re Gaza, Syria, Iraq, Libya, ISIS, Boko Haram, Iran, Ukraine, the South China Sea, our Southern border and Fergusan, MO.
Over the weekend, “No Drama Obama” altered the “all is well” narrative at a fundraiser – admitting that the world is messy but “the world has always been messy, we’re just noticing now in part because of social media.”
In case you’re wondering if the President of the United States is delusional, fear not. At least he presides over a competent administration that can be trusted to guide him along a sane path.
That said, here is what the Secretary of State John Kerry said Wednesday in Estonia concerning what he considers to be perhaps the greatest challenge we face, today.
Our Secretary of State expressed his deep, spiritual commitment to protecting Muslim countries from the scourge of….global warming. That’s right, Kerry is on a mission from GOD to save the Middle East from climate change.
Our fates are inextricably linked on any number of things that we must confront and deal with in policy concepts today. Our fates are inextricably linked on the environment. For many of us, respect for God’s creation also translates into a duty to protect and sustain His first creation: Earth, the planet. Before God created man, He created Heavens and Earth.
Confronting climate change is, in the long run, one of the greatest challenges that we face, and you can see this duty or responsibility laid down in scriptures, clearly, beginning in Genesis. And Muslim-majority countries are among the most vulnerable. Our response to this challenge ought to be rooted in a sense of stewardship of Earth. And for me and for many of us here today, that responsibility comes from God.
We continue to be in the very best of hands.
