OTTAWA, July 7, 2003 ( – As if population control guru and one-worlder Maurice Strong did not have enough to do as a top advisor to the United Nations and the World Bank, and running confabs for the world’s wealthiest and most powerful, he is now being courted as a top advisor to Paul Martin, the man set to become Canada’s next Prime Minister. 

The Ottawa Citizen reports that Strong’s new role will commence at the end of this year or early next, after the Nov. 15 Liberal leadership race.  Hanne Strong, Maurice’s wife, told the Citizen’s parent company CanWest that she and her husband have bought a condo in downtown Ottawa and intend to move back to Ottawa as early as November. 

Mrs. Strong runs a synchretic New Age centre on the couple’s 160,000-acre Baca ranch in Colorado.  Despite being an environmental extremist and admitted overpopulation doomsayer who has publicly endorsed legal limits on family size, Strong is nonetheless well regarded by world leaders.  Touted as one of the most well connected men on the planet, Strong has used his extensive web of high level international connections to advance the demise of national sovereignty, democracy and traditional religion and other elements he believes are causing an over-populous and environmentally-irresponsible humanity to endanger the planet. 

Beginning with the concept of fostering a new “global ethic”, Strong, along with fellow de-population advocates Mikhail Gorbachev and Stephen Rockefeller, co-produced the Earth Charter to be a New World Ten Commandments. Such nonsense would normally not be taken seriously except for the connections that Strong has at the U.N. and with many current and past world leaders. 

For years, conservative intellectuals have derided those who voiced concerns about Strong’s Earth Charter and his plans for the demise of Christianity. However, earlier this year the Vatican warned against the “global ethics” which are the origin and core of the Earth Charter.  In an article published in L’Osservatore Romano on February 11, Archbishop Javier Lozano Barragán, president of the Pontifical Council for Health Care Workers warned that the aim of the program was to supplant Christian values with a “global ethic.” 

The Archbishop called the ‘global ethic’ movement an eco-religion which holds “sustainable development” as the highest good.  He said it manifests itself “as a new spirituality that supplants all religions, because the latter have been unable to preserve the ecosystem.” In a word, this is “a new secular religion, a religion without God, or if you prefer, a new God that is the earth itself with the name GAIA,” he said.  “The different religions existing in the world have been unable to generate this global ethic; therefore, they must be replaced by a new spirituality, which has as its end global well-being, within sustainable development,” explained Archbishop Barragán.
