Is the USA now an ‘evil empire’?

Ronald Reagan’s ‘Evil Empire’ Speech in 1983


Back in 1983, then US President Ronald Reagan made a speech in which he named the old Soviet Union as an ‘evil empire.’

But what about the USA?  Is it now an evil empire?

Consider the following:

July 29, 2015

Monsanto is an incredibly powerful force in modern agriculture, supplying a wide swath of farmers with seeds, pesticides, and data. They are also notoriously secretive and combative with journalists, a PR strategy that has helped perpetuate the “Evil Empire” meme.

Monsanto is a US-based company, headquartered in Missouri.  It has foisted genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) on many parts of the world, despite the resistance from consumers and some governments.  In my opinion, the risk to the food supply for the USA and others that are relying on GMOs is stark and much too dangerous.  Human-caused/engineered famines are evil.

Some may dismiss that as proof that the USA is becoming an evil empire, but notice something I ran across today from a Catholic priest named C. John McCloskey indicating that the USA is now an evil empire:

July 26, 2015

Is the United States of America an evil empire? My opinion is that it may well be one at this moment.

I would take it a step further and say yes, the United States of America is an evil empire.  Priest McCloskey did not list his reasons for why he felt it may, but I would like to list some of mine as to why it is.

But before I do, notice also the following:

July 28, 2015

When we were opposing “the Evil Empire,” our military rarely went to war. Yet now that we’ve won that epic struggle, we are constantly at war, and our military is suffering for it.

The USA military has, of course, been engaged in many wars throughout its history.  But it does seem that the USA is involved in many wars.  Although early Christians would not even watch violent sports, Americans often promote them (see also Is American Football Evil?).

While many believe that US wars are justified, in what ways can the USA truly be considered as an evil empire?

In addition to its government promoting, and even legally protecting makers of GMOs (see H.R. 933 includes pro-GMO provision that some call ‘Monsanto Protection Act’), here are several that come to immediate mind.

  1. Its domestic and international promoting of abortion.
  2. Its allowing the sale of human body parts, despite its laws that are supposed to protect against it.
  3. It promotion of pornographic (soft and hard core) ‘entertainment’ materials domestically and internationally.
  4. Its promotion of the homosexual agenda, both domestically and internationally.
  5. It vastly increased debt which will not properly ever be paid back (cf. Habakkuk 2:6-8).
  6. Its promotion, via much of its advertising industry, to mislead consumers.
  7. Its promotion of false education.
  8. Certain chemicals it has produced and promoted harm people and the environment.

As far as evil goes, consider the following:

22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man — and 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.

26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. (Romans 1:22-32)

Certainly, by promoting homosexuality, abortion, and pornography, the USA is promoting evil.

But let’s consider the USA as ‘inventors of evil things.’  In addition to ‘evil things’ related to pornography, equating homosexual couples with marriage is an evil invention.  And while that was not invented in the USA, its promotion, etc., especially internationally, has been.

Hillary Clinton admitted that it was her pushing of the homosexual agenda that soured the relationship between the USA and Russia.  Furthermore, the USA has greatly offended African nations because of it–yet its President still does it (see Ignoring church pleas, Barack Obama promotes homosexual agenda in Kenya. Is he fulfilling prophecy?).  While the USA has limited this pressure towards Islamic countries, its promotion of the homosexual agenda is one of many aspects of moral decline that encourages Islamic terrorists to want to do damage to the USA.

The abortion industry has also been inventive.  In addition to changing terms (calling abortion ‘pro-choice,’ for one example), doctors in the USA and elsewhere have come up with various evil inventions for performing abortions.

Other ‘evil inventions’ include gender-changing surgeries, various forms of sexual identification which many leaders in the USA now consider to be acceptable (e.g. LGBTQQIP: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Pansexual, etc.), and using a rainbow, not to show God’s promise to not destroy the world via flood (Genesis 9:12-17), but to promote anti-biblical lifestyles.

I would add that the idea that the Boy Scouts of America have scouts and scout leaders that are allegedly ‘morally straight’ is another evil invention.

Notice something related to Barack Obama’s visit to Kenya and Ethiopia I added here as a later update once I saw it:

July 30, 2015

Gay Rights

Surprisingly, there was one more negative impression of the US that young Kenyans and Ethiopians repeatedly told me about, and it was about a lack of freedom of speech and expression in the US.

But this impression was related to the issue of gay rights. It is one topic on which many told us they found President Obama’s views unpalatable.

The African view that the USA is now curbing freedom of speech and expression is sadly true.

The creation of dross money, from programs like ‘quantitative easing’ is another evil invention on the USA. Notice what Isaiah was inspired to write:

16…Put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes. Cease to do evil, …

22 Your silver has become dross, Your wine mixed with water. (Isaiah 1:16, 22)

The creating of money via quantitative easing and certain other debt programs is like mixing wine with water and is a form of deceit that has a price.

Furthermore, it should be understood that the USA has no intention to pay all of its debt back which it, in essence, foisted upon the international community and others.  The Bible teaches against it and that is wicked:

21 The wicked borrows and does not repay, (Psalm 37:21)

6…’How horrible it will be for the one who makes himself rich with what is not his own and makes himself wealthy on loans. How long will this go on?

7 Won’t your creditors suddenly rise up and those who are going to shake you wake up? Then you will become their prize.

8 You have looted many nations. All the rest of the people will loot you because of the slaughter and violence done to lands, cities, and all their inhabitants. (Habakkuk 2:6-8), God’s Word Translation)

Being a wicked borrow will be a factor in the elimination of the USA.

The USA is the most indebted nation in the history of humanity–its standard of living has been subsidized by foreigners for decades and the Bible shows it will be taken over for it (Habakkuk 2:6-8).

The Bible also warns:

20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; (Isaiah 5:20)

Yet, in Kentucky volunteer pastors have to sign a statement to work with youth that they will NOT call homosexuality sinful (see also ‘Bible does not define our laws’).  The fruits of the homosexual agenda are evil (see also The Bible Condemns Homosexuality).

Notice also Hillary Clinton’s position about an organization accused of selling body parts:

7/23/15 Hillary Clinton strongly defended Planned Parenthood Thursday as the women’s health organization reels from the fallout over a sting video released by anti-abortion activists earlier this month.

“For more than a century, Planned Parenthood has provided essential services for women,” Clinton said while campaigning at a community college in Greenville, South Carolina. “And I think it is unfortunate that Planned Parenthood has been the object of such a concerted attack for so many years. And it’s really an attack against a woman’s right to chose.”

As far as a ‘woman’s right to choose’ goes, most of the women whose babies have parts sold do not knowingly choose to allow this. And as far as women’s rights to choose, that does not include the right to murder (for more details, see also Abortion, the Bible, and a Woman’s Right to Choose).

Actually, people like Hillary Clinton want to change religion to say what they want it to say:

Hillary Clinton: Religious Beliefs Must Be Changed to Achieve Social Justice

April 24, 2015

In a fiery speech Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton argues that deep seated religious beliefs must be changed so that everyone can enjoy full participation in every aspect of society.

Clinton, speaking in Manhattan on Thursday at the sixth annual Women in The World Summit, declared that “deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases” must be changed both in the U.S. and around the world in order to achieve social justice.

Clinton, after discussing the pressing social justice issues of domestic violence and women’s reproductive health, said:

Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.

As I have said and as I believe, the advancement of the full participation of women and girls in every aspect of their societies is the great unfinished business of the 21st century and not just for women but for everyone — and not just in far away countries but right here in the United States.

Instead of advocating repentance from sin, Hillary Clinton wants a re-education where religious views changed so that people will embrace abortion, homosexuality, and other immoral positions that Christians should condemn.  And she certainly is not the only one.

I would add that while social justice is an interesting goal, many ways politicians promote are biblically wrong as they promote covetousness and often stealing (though they do not call it stealing).  True social justice will not come until the return of Jesus Christ and the establishment of the kingdom of God.

Other aspects of false education include teaching that deviant lifestyles are to be embraced as well as to basically not be allowed to teach any form of creationism in most schools and universities (watch, for example, Is There Another View of Evolution?).

1 The fool has said in his heart,
“There is no God.”
They are corrupt,
They have done abominable works,  (Psalms 14:1)

22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, (Romans 1:22)

I would also restate that advertisers are legally allowed to grossly exaggerate, promote lust, and put out misleading information.  Many advertisers around the world have followed some of these same practices, some of which are evil.

On June 29, 1924, Will Rodgers stated, “America has the best politicians money can buy.” While many laughed when he said that originally, in certain respects this has become true.

Because many politicians have been influenced by money from chemical and pharmaceutical companies, the USA has sometimes promoted chemicals and other substances that are harmful to both people and the environment (see also The Bible, Christians, and the Environment).  I would add that some of the ‘solutions’ to the environmental issues that various ones have been proposing will not work.

Jesus will come and:

18…destroy those who destroy the earth. (Revelation 11:18)

The Bible shows that God’s kingdom will come that will eliminate all the evil ones.

But before that, the ‘evil empire’ that the USA has been building will be destroyed, despite its military strength (Daniel 11:39) but because of its debt (Habakkuk 2:6-8) and its promotion of evil (Romans 1:18-32).
