Raelians, Catholics and the Clone Age

"When men cease to believe in God," said G. K. Chesterton, "they do not believe in nothing; they believe in anything!"
On the day after Christmas, the world watched in shock as “Brigitte” an alleged “Bishop” of the “Raelian” movement, announced that “Clonaid”, a for profit outreach of the same movement, had “successfully” cloned a baby girl whom they had named “Eve”.
I was reminded of a phrase used by an editorialist I read years ago when he warned of a new “Clone Age.”
Amidst the cries of “hoax” and the justified international uproar against the “ethics’ of this macabre claim (and even more importantly, the disastrous path of “cloning” human beings at all) there is a bigger struggle unfolding. It is a struggle for the heart, mind and soul of the human race at the threshold of the Third Millennium. At risk is nothing less than the future of civilization
In years past I probably would have thought that this (up until recently) obscure, esoteric sect was only one of many examples of the timeless truth of the maxim of the great Catholic writer, G.K. Chesterton, "When men cease to believe in God, they do not believe in nothing; they believe in anything!"
However, these last few days have opened my eyes. I have read much about these people, their philosophy, their claims, their plans and their founder. The ideas behind their actions may reveal the next great struggle in the continuing battle for the future and the soul of human civilization, especially if we do not act quickly to stop this insane movement toward a new “Clone Age”.
This “Bishop” ( a woman dressed in skin tight black clothing) is a follower of Claude Vorhilon (a.k.a.“Rael”). This new Pied Piper of the U.F.O. jet set claims to have been given both a revelation and a new name by a visiting space alien named “Yahweh Elohim” (two of the names given to God in the Hebrew Scriptures) on a volcano in 1973. In that encounter he also claims to have been given a mission to prepare this manufactured race for the return of their masters in 2035.
In this “new” teaching, the manufacturers of the human race were not “gods” at all but simply a master race of aliens. The technology they used is now being revealed and by harnessing it we can become like them. We can create our own future and “make” new humans.
The preparation that “Rael” preaches, that must precede their return, is to encourage his followers to live a life of complete and total self centeredness and self worship and bring others to do the same. “Liberation” in this new “way” is simply licentiousness dressed up in a science fiction soup of bizarre esoteric pseudo-spiritual mumbo jumbo. They claim that they can “free” the inhabitants of this planet from their restrictive morals and world view by bringing them into this new “way”.
The group has an open hatred for Catholics in particular. They regularly disturb Catholic schools in Canada by handing out condoms to children in order that they may begin to adopt the way of his new Raelian definition of freedom. I think their hatred of Catholic Christianity is actually quite understandable. If, as I do, one believes that Catholic faith is the fullness of Christianity and that what the Catholic Church teaches about human sexuality, dignity and destiny are true, it is the opposite of what they teach. No wonder it is therefore their great enemy!
The seed of the profane dogma proclaimed by the words and deeds of the Raelians is set forth in its seed form in Rael’s book entitled “Extra Terrestrials Took me To Their Planet.” It extols a form of sexual “liberation” including teaching children to engage in sexual activity as early as possible “purely for pleasure without any commitment to the sexual partner.”
Additionally, the “liberation” message includes directions to women to “have sex with one or more individuals of either sex as long as the individuals agree, since contraception has freed women from fear of pregnancy…” Thus the group promotes regular orgies and has completely separated sexual activity from marriage, love, reproduction or any connection whatsoever and simply made it one more “thing” that one does to gratify self.
In the final act of desecration, this bizarre new way of “living” promises a form of eternal “life”. This is to be gained by adherents following the instruction that all “Raelians” are to “arrange on their death, (that) one square centimeter of the bone from their forehead, 33 millimeters above the middle axis between their pupils , is sent to the (Raelian) embassy for re-creation purposes”
You see, they have a new method of “creation” of the future enlightened “human” race, cloning-which is ...
