Earth Day turns 40

The first Earth Day was celebrated on April 22, 1970. The event was the brainchild of one man, Sen. Gaylord Nelson, who had been searching for a way to bring political attention and public concern to environmental issues. Inspired by the “teach-ins” of the anti-Vietnam era, the event was more successful than Nelson, who was awarded the Medal of Freedom for his vision and work, could have imagined. He passed away in June 2005, but the day he created lives on.

This year, we observe the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, and the need for grassroots action has never been more critical. Here are ways you can get involved:

                                      Earth Day, Who’s Sinister Birthday?

          Earth day is an anti-Christian, Communist holiday, created by Marxists, and established on the Centennial of Lenin's birthday: April 22 1970 with the participation of the Jewish Communist and convicted murderer Ira Einhorn. This "secular" holy day (holiday) is celebrated in Government offices and government public schools and replaces "Christian" celebrations once observed in those institutions. This fulfills Bible prophesies regarding the coming of a prominent Anti-Christ in the "Last Days" and Jews turning away from their God, even hating Him, and worshiping his creation instead. ( 1 John 2:18–23 Romans 1:25&30 )  It is remarkable that, even though over 80% of the people in the U.S. identify themselves as Christians, the federal, State and local governments of the U.S. identify themselves as "secular" ( atheist, Marxist ) and have changed their laws from reflecting Christian values to reflecting Anti-Christian, "secular" values. Laws that were once anti-pornography have been replaced by pro-pornography laws, anti-abortion laws replaced by pro-abortion laws, and anti-homosexual laws by pro-homosexual laws. The Bible is indeed a book of true prophesy.
