Congressional Issues 2012
Government Tentacles of Atheism and Immorality

Congress should:
  • re-study the original purposes of civil government
  • abolish all unconstitutional agencies and
  • cut off funding of all Non-Governmental Organizations

  • The purpose of civil government is to promote Christianity. See the evidence from America's Founders here.
  • The Constitution allows the federal government to act only in areas which have been strictly enumerated in the Constitution.
  • Understanding those two concepts is critical in empowering and inspiring activists to abolish unChristian and unConstitutional government programs and agencies.
  • The purpose of this page is to show how vast that assignment really is.


Use the mnemonic "3-4-5" to think about the scope of your government.


Three Branches of Government:
Executive || Legislative || Judicial

4 There is also something known as The Fourth Branch of government. "The Bureaucracy." The "Administrative State."
5 A "Fifth Column": The Government also pursues its policy objectives through mis-named "NGO's" - "Non-Governmental Agencies." This provides a bureaucratic form of "plausible denial." These government-funded NGO's promote abortion, global warming mythology, homosexuality, and many other cults and practices of  the religion of Secular Humanism.

The following is a catalog of government tentacles, to gain an overview of all that "the government" is doing.

We must always keep in mind that at present the government is committed to being a "secular" government, which is to say, an atheistic government, that its religion is the religion of Secular Humanism and "pluralism," which is an outright denial of the truth of Christianity. Around the world, agencies of the U.S. Government are promoting atheism and immorality.

Our goal should not be to change government funding from atheistic agencies to "Christian" agencies; to use the coercive power of the U.S. Federal Government to impose Christianity and threaten vengeance and punishment to those who engage in immorality, but to eliminate the tentacles that now encompass not just America, but the entire Globe.

Efforts at Christian Reconstruction and social healing should be undertaken by voluntary associations in the Free Market. This requires a complete transfiguration of our view of "society." A Christian view of "society" distinguishes society and state. Social order for the Christian begins with a regenerated heart, which
leads one's family,
influences one's neighbors,
shapes local schools,
determines the ethical practices of businesses and corporations, and
demands Christian values in media and entertainment.
Working from the individual, from the "bottom up," Christianity creates a Godly and humane society, without much help from "the State." Imposing a Godly society on unconverted people using the coercive power of the sword is repudiated by the Bible.

This catalog of Government tentacles is vastly abbreviated. Its purpose cannot be exhaustive identification of all the tentacles. The important point is to see how broad the scope is. Every area of life and thought is being reconstructed by these atheistic agencies. This is the outworking of a secular, non-Christian worldview, which views Caesar as Savior. There may be well-intentioned Christians working in the organizations listed below, and not everything done by these agencies would go undone if these agencies were abolished; some genuinely humanitarian activities are performed by some of these agencies, and Christians would undoubtedly take up the slack and solve the problems which these agencies purport to solve. But this catalog represents hundreds of billions of dollars spent on largely wasted (at best) efforts, or worse, successful promotion of atheism and immorality in the quest for a Humanistic world.

"Reforming" a tentacle here or there, or even amputating one tentacle here or another there, will not stop this beast. Individuals must develop a Christian worldview, and the entire Octopus must be destroyed.

First we'll survey domestic tentacles of atheism and immorality, then we'll look at the global reach of Washington-funded tentacles.

Executive Branch

Executive Office of the President (EOP)   
These offices oversee numerous tentacles.

Link at the White House website | Executive Office of the President: | The Library of Congress says, "With the time we have available, it is not possible to keep this page totally comprehensive. Agencies are often included because they requested to be listed. For more government sites, see: Legislative, Judicial or Government Resources in general."

 Executive Agencies-- Cabinet

Executive Agencies are charged with the day-to-day enforcement and administration of federal laws. These agencies were created by Congress to deal with specific areas of national and international affairs.

 Independent Establishments and Government Corporations
Boards, Commissions and Committees
Boards, Commissions and Committees are created by Congress in the form of an amendment to an existing act, to advise the President and Congress on specific topics.
 Quasi-Official Agencies
Quasi-Official Agencies are not officially Executive Agencies but are required by statute to publish certain information on their programs and activities in the Federal Register.


Finally, we have to examine the effect of Federally-Funded NGO's ("Non-Governmental Agencies") as well as International NGO's. At one point we had begun a catalog of NGO's, like the abbreviated catalog of government agencies above. But Helmut Anheier et al, in their work Global Civil Society place the number of internationally operating NGOs at 40,000. And that was back in 2001. [Global Civil Society 2007/8]

The World Bank, defines NGOs as "private organizations that pursue activities to relieve suffering, promote the interests of the poor, protect the environment, provide basic social services, or undertake community development". A World Bank Key Document, Working With NGOs, adds, "In wider usage, the term NGO can be applied to any non-profit organization which is independent from government. NGOs are typically value-based organizations which depend, in whole or in part, on charitable donations and voluntary service.

By the way, which leader of the World Bank did you vote for? To say an NGO depends "in part" on charitable donations is to say it depends "in part" on government funding, which is to say, your paycheck. But as "the smoking man" on X-Files used to say, "Access. It's all about access." Even if privately financed, an atheistic NGO will be granted access where a Christian NGO would not.

Over the last few decades, federal funding has been given only to NGO's that promote secularism and non-Christian morality. There have recently been efforts to get "faith-based" NGO's funded which promote, e.g., abstinence rather than condoms. "Secularist" and "pluralist" forces have fought these appropriations tooth and nail. In the long run, the best approach is to eliminate federal funding for everyone's NGO.

Here is a short list of NGO's affiliated with the United Nations, which receives funding taken from your paycheck.

    Other NGO's

    • INGO stands for international NGO;
    • BINGO is short for business-oriented international NGO, or big international NGO;
    • ENGO, short for environmental NGO, such as Global 2000;
    • GONGOs are government-operated NGOs, which may have been set up by governments to look like NGOs in order to qualify for outside aid or promote the interests of the government in question;
    • QUANGOs are quasi-autonomous non-governmental organizations, such as the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). (The ISO is actually not purely an NGO, since its membership is by nation, and each nation is represented by what the ISO Council determines to be the 'most broadly representative' standardization body of a nation. That body might itself be a nongovernmental organization; for example, the United States is represented in ISO by the American National Standards Institute, which is independent of the federal government. However, other countries can be represented by national governmental agencies; this is the trend in Europe.)
    • TANGO, short for technical assistance NGO;
    • CSO, short for citizen sector organization or citizen society organization;
    Which is Worse: A "Corrupt" NGO or an "Effective" NGO?
    Many NGO's have an explicitly anti-Christian purpose, or a purpose that would appall the men who signed the Declaration of Independence and Constitution. Other NGO's have a more reasonable, less destructive purpose, but your taxdollars are swallowed up in their administrative waste and corruption.

    Exactly How Has the US Meddled in the Ukrainian Elections? by Congressman Ron Paul
    Statement before the US House International Relations Committee, December 7, 2004
         Mr. Chairman: President Bush said last week that, "Any election (in Ukraine), if there is one, ought to be free from any foreign influence." I agree with the president wholeheartedly. Unfortunately, it seems that several US government agencies saw things differently and sent US taxpayer dollars into Ukraine in attempt to influence the outcome.
         We do not know exactly how many millions – or tens of millions – of dollars the United States government spent on the presidential election in Ukraine. We do know that much of that money was targeted to assist one particular candidate, and that through a series of cut-out non-governmental organizations (NGOs) – both American and Ukrainian – millions of dollars ended up in support of the presidential candidate, Viktor Yushchenko.
    Bush’s Foreign-Aid Fraud by James Bovard
         Foreign aid fails in part because of pervasive corruption. A 2003 report from a leading Bangladesh university estimated that 75 percent of all foreign aid received in that country is lost to corruption. Northwestern University political economist Jeffrey Winters estimated that more than 50 percent of World Bank aid is lost to corruption in some African countries. President Olusegun Obasanjo of Nigeria announced in 2002 that African leaders “have stolen at least $140 billion from their people in the decades since independence.”
         An African Union study pegged the takings at a much higher rate, estimating Africa’s toll from corruption at $150 billion every year. Lavish automobiles are so popular among African government officials that a word has come into use in Swahili – wabenzi – for “men of the Mercedes-Benz.” Investment guru Jim Rogers, who recently drove around the globe, declared,
    Most foreign aid winds up with outside consultants, the local military, corrupt bureaucrats, the new NGO [nongovernmental organizations] administrators, and Mercedes dealers. There are Mercedes dealers in places where there are not even roads.

    "He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our People, and eat out their substance."
    Declaration of Independence, 1776

    Governments around the world swallow up half of the world's wealth. Can you imagine how the world could be improved if people were allowed to keep their money out of the government coffers and donate that money to churches, non-profit agencies, and other organizations that are held accountable by the Free Market and achieve many times the good results at a fraction of the cost of government agencies? When families spend their money in "the pursuit of happiness," the money is spent more wisely and more humanely than when the government re-distributes family money to various bureaucracies and NGO's.

    "The Government" -- as a way of achieving social objectives and a vehicle for social change -- is not a friend of any disciple of the Executed Christ.

    July, 2015: The United Nations supports pro-family policy; The United States Opposes it.

    “[T]he United States lobbied [against it] with great energy,” says Slater, noting that pushing the LGBT agenda abroad has become a “primary objective of our nation's foreign policy.” She even reports that our delegation threatened to withhold foreign aid to developing nations if they affirmed the natural family.
