Is John Kerry mentally ill? 'Scriptures Commands America To Protect Muslims From Global Warming '

At first, I thought this had to be a joke in the style of “The Onion”. Sadly, no. I have video of this dolt saying this on C-Span. I don’t know who’s more dangerous to humanity, Kerry or ISIS.

kerry_muslimsThe video:

Here is some history leading up to this epic inanity. In February, Kerry said climate change is as ‘big a threat to the world as terrorism, poverty, and weapons of mass destruction’. Last month Kerry said climate change is the “biggest challenge of all we face right now.” And on Tuesday September 3rd, at a ceremony to appoint Texas lawyer Shaarik Zafar as special representative to Muslim communities, Kerry told the crowd that it is America’s Biblical “responsibility” to “confront climate change.”

“Our faiths are inextricably linked on any number of things that we must confront and deal with in policy concepts today. Our faiths are inextricably linked on the environment. For many of us, respect for God’s creation also translates into a duty to protect and sustain his first creation, Earth, the planet,”

Confronting climate change is, in the long run, one of the greatest challenges that we face, and you can see this duty or responsibility laid out in Scriptures clearly, beginning in Genesis. And Muslim-majority countries are among the most vulnerable. Our response to this challenge ought to be rooted in a sense of stewardship of Earth, and for me and for many of us here today, that responsibility comes from God.”

I do hope Mr. Kerry travels to the heart of an ISIS stronghold to deliver this message personally. Maybe then he’ll gain a sense of priority and perhaps, some sanity when he realizes his epic mistake.

If you have to ask if Kerry is mentally ill, you haven’t been paying attention…

Jimmy Haigh.

Well “The Scriptures” are a load of bollocks. In my opinion. And at the risk of being politically incorrect. But that shouldn’t be a problem here.


Well that true fact has never stopped any number of folk from trying to use them to control us. The Pharisees come to mind.

+1. Continues to completely amaze me that people will believe something which has no evidence or basis in reality. Religion belongs to another time, when we couldn’t explain stuff.



David L. Hagen

Jimmy Haigh
Take that up with the Author when you face him.
Kerry apparently forgot James encouragement:

Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.

And to stop activities that cause widows and orphans.


Not forgetting Phillipians 4:8
8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Especially inspiring as it comes from someone who (at least earlier) had a few rough edges….
(don’t we all….)…


I’m a Christian, and I disagree with you. But I will not debate that, because you are welcome to your opinion, as I’m sure you respect mine. My Soul is my problem, yours is yours. elegant, huh? 😉
What I HATE about Kerry spouting this is that he is trying to justify ordering other people around in the name of Religion. That’s how Wars begin. Get rid of him Yanks, please.

Maurizio Rovati

I don’t believe in any god, religion, CAGW, settled science, political party, economists, wine sommellier etc, but I totally agree with you! 🙂



John Boles

There should be a wall of separation between state and religion. He wants to use religion as a way to tax us more, to save us from ourselves. Lots of empty talk from him.

Robert of Ottawa

Separation of church and state is a strictly Christian thing, although a good idea for everyone.


no, it’s an American thing……


Robert of Ottawa has it right. In America today the only religion the Establishment Clause is aimed at is Christianity. Islam is protected by, but never threatened by litigation concerning the Establishment Clause.

French thing, if I recall. From the 18th century. When they perfectly that behading machine.

* perfected, * beheading. DYAC.


Actually it isn’t strictly a christian thing, look at the wording. “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;”

Eugene WR Gallun

There should be a wall of separation between state and John Kerry.


There is a wall between Kerry and reality and it looks pretty darned big.


Maybe he’s just trying to out-crazy the crazies. Yeah, that’s it.

Alan McIntire

Church and state ARE separate as far as running for public office and serving in public office are concerned. There’s no state religion, no requirment to belong to a state sanctioned religion.
As to freedom of speech, the first Amendment applies, Everyone has a right to proselytize their religious or moral beliefs in public venues-
You have the right to disregard stupid statements, but under the first amendment, you cannot use the government to PROHIBIT those stupid statements, from Secretary Kerry or anyone else.


Actually there is a wall and it has been made much higher than the founders ever intended it to be. Take Jefferson for example. The very man who wrote a private letter to a pastor from which that concept of a wall is derived as per current jurist prudence. He was a Virginian. Virginia was one of the few colonies that had the Church of England as the state church. Jefferson had trouble with that while growing up and saw the corruption and out right oppression of liberty such an arrangement fostered. But a man that writes his own version of the bible believed in God though he had strong questions. He may have questioned if he was an active God or just a creator. Like several of the founders, including Franklin Jefferson’s religious opinions evolved over time. At times he wrote as a true deist and at others as a believer in an active savior. But at no time did he ever deny that there was a God. And at no time did he ever propose the level of separation that has been extrapolated from that single private letter. To believe for example that removal of the veterans cross in San Diego would have met with Jefferson’s approval is idiocy.

Leonard Lane

Insanity or complete and abject baseless lies to suck up to his boss Barak Hussein Obama. But, like most unstable people he made a mistake, he should of based his talk on the Koran that would have made him a darling of Obama.

Some people are just obsessed

Robert of Ottawa

The high flying high-falutin anointed ones are completely not of this world. I too thought it was a joke but it was the word from on high by a joke. The foreign services of countries around the world must be laughing their socks off.

Janice Moore

Is Kerry mentally ill?
Only to the extent that any cult leader is.
He is simply using the modus operandi of all cult leaders: twist the tenets of a bona fide religion (here, Judeo-Christianity) to get their cult members to do what they want them to do (here, buy into windmill-promoting CO2 l1e-s).
Scripture (as in the Old and New Testaments) most certainly does NOT require us to live out a l1e.
That is what Kerry is trying to do:
manipulate those ignorant of the text of their own religious documents to “save the planet” (some more).
Those of us familiar with Scripture are NOT FOOLED.
Re: “mentally ill”…. From a Herb Caan column in the San Francisco Chronicle decades ago v. a v. some current politician:

“Could they put him into a mental institution?” you ask. “I don’t think so… on the other hand…, if he were already in one, I don’t think they would let him out.”

Bwah, ha, ha, ha, haaaaaa!
Thanks for THAT Friday Funny, An-tho-ny.

Gunga Din

Any word from The Freedom From Religion Foundation?

Gunga Din

(Sorry, Caleb. I’m going to link to it again.)
I said this awhile ago on Caleb’s blog. I know it crosses some doctrinal lines but, to the best I know, it is what The Book actually says.
Kerry is wrong on so many levels.
PS Please don’t respond there. Caleb didn’t ask for that comment from me and I won’t respond there myself.


Would that politician (party 🙂 ) be mentioned in this song: (from “Going My Way”…gosh I’m dating myself…)
Would you like to swing on a star?

“Is John Kerry mentally ill?”
Yes, John Kerry is mentally ill, but that puts him in the normal range for members of the Democrat party.


maybe it is due to the “bohemian club” – ???

I have long thought that corrupt politicians appoint really stupid bureaucrats. Deliberately.
Where as truly stupid politicians appoint corrupt bureaucrats . Accidentally.
The acid test of this Kerry Insanity, is the what if Bush had used these words?
The Press gives these bumbling micro-wits a free pass as they destroy everything they touch.
If the Democrats are just incompetent or outright malicious, does not matter.
Their behaviour is unacceptable.
I say Democrats as this is their selected leadership.
Oddly it is the lack of leadership that seems to be their problem.
Definitely Kerry and friends are the greater threat to civilization.
We can and will deal with the Jihadists with in our existing structure.
There is no confusion about their aims.
The worms who gnaw at the foundations of civilization are far more destructive because they hide behind their lies and spin.
People refuse to recognize the evil inherent in those who insist they are only trying to help.


“The acid test of this Kerry Insanity, is the what if Bush had used these words?”
Or in AUS, the “What if Abbott666 said / did that?” test.
Look, to a warmy that comment wasn’t THAT insane. Bangladesh and Maldives are two low lying places talked about a lot. In his head, “Both Christians and Moslems should unite on this issue” sounded good.
Unfortunately, in the real world he should have been saying to the Muslim world “Sorry about yet another failed state we created on your door step with our idiotic “regime change” in Libya, and have any of you guys seen 11 planes missing from Tripoli?” Because the average Ali, Mahmood or Ayesha isn’t being kept awake by the idea that their great grand kids will have seas 4″ higher.


There are no leaders or statesmen in either American party…..a big part of the problems we face.


Just imagine the Liberal media’s response if a Republican Secretary of State invoked biblical scripture to advocate a political agenda.

Mary Kay Barton

No kidding joelobryan! It would probably resemble Armageddon.


I don’t have to imagine, I just recall. Quoting scripture fried several candidates when it concerned abortions in the last Presidential election cycle.

It can be all done from an office armchair by sheer brain power.
Team of US-led researchers successfully achieves brain-to-brain communication between humans from India to France.

John Kerry was a member of the Skull and Bones secret society, he’s not even a Christian. He must be either trying to manipulate Christians or make them look stupid. Plus the Bible never says anything about being stewards of creation, quite the opposite. Still, he probably knows more about the Bible than geopolitics.


Well Kerry is of Jewish decent and they also use the old testament. I gotta say I saw his remarks on another site and thought it was a joke and not real. God preserve the USA.

M Courtney

Genesis Chapter 2 verse 15 (from the NIV)

The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.

Yes, we have a religious duty to both exploit the land and to look after the land.
Many theologians would say that is “being stewards of creation”.

The problem is that he is instead worshipping the creation more than the creator.

Tom in Florida

Tell that to Iron Butterfly.

Janice Moore

Boy, I REALLY wrote that above post in too big a hurry…
Those ignorant of the text of their own religious documents are ALSO IGNORANT OF REAL (as in, based on observations and data) SCIENCE.
The ignorant hungry (because they are empty of truth) will feed off any garbage that is thrown to them.
Really. Pitiful.

Leonard Lane

Thank you Janice.

Janice Moore

You’re welcome (though I am not sure I deserve any thanks, Mr. Lane… ).


“god helps those that help themselves”
I come here to get a heaping helping of information, in the hope of lessening my ignorance.
It is not a search for any ultimate truth, I don’t believe there is one.
Pity me if you will, it’s your choice.

“I do hope Mr. Kerry travels to the heart of an ISIS stronghold to deliver this message personally.”
I know IS(IS) is bad, very bad, but surely, even they deserve some mercy (/sarc).

Alan Watt, Climate Denialist Level 7

I’m not laughing. John Kerry and Al Gore both almost became president. Then Barack Obama did. Scripture tells us God sends plagues in threes.

Janice Moore

Thanks for that, Mr. Watt — very encouraging.
So! We are soon to be leaving the land of slavery,
… it will take God parting the Red Sea of human CO2 l1e-s to get us into the promised land of science and truth, but, take heart, forces for truth-in-science,

Truth will win (has won, actually)!

Hillary is coming.

george e. smith

Sad but probably very true; but many believe what SHE said: “What difference does it make ??”
Any of you that want to experience the ecstasy of having voted for the first woman President of The United States of America; and will in all likelihood actually do it twice again. Get ready to explain to your children, and grand children, that you did this to them, for your own self aggrandizement !!
If we get it, we will surely deserve it. I probably won’t survive it.


Another practice run at the “Name and Shame” game. I didn’t think he could get any worse, but he proves me wrong again. I wonder if Teresa has a big condiment contract pending with them?

Geoff Pohanka

I think Kerry has lost his head…….


John Kerry, with his usual wisdom and sense of history, has decided to stake his legacy on CAGW. Actually, its a pretty good fit. His shameful abandonment of his shipmates in Vietnam foretold a man without character or scruples who will be comfortable with the practitioners of false science.

Alan Watt, Climate Denialist Level 7

This is not true; Kerry did not abandon his shipmates in Vietnam. He removed himself from a position of command where his manifold flaws in character and judgement would likely put them in greater danger. Of course he was acting in his interest rather than theirs, but still they were almost certainly better off without him.


If you believe Kerry removed himself from command you believe the rewritten history. He was “advised” to do so by his superiors……such “advisement” generally meant there would be no future promotion. Not speculation…I was there and knew the SOB. My feelings were held by nearly all.


To answer the question: Yes. And has been for over 40 years.


How times change, used to be (for the Left) that religion was fascist and science was evil (nuclear, pollution etc), now the Left seek to co-opt both religion and science to their purpose.

If it’s Islam, the “Religion of Peace”, that’s different.

I suppose he had this passage in mind:
“Genesis 1:28
“King James Version (KJV)
“28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”
If so, his interpretation of “to protect and sustain” is a stretch, at best. I’d like to see his idea of the koranic equivalent to this biblical verse.


The Bible also says to be good stewards which implies not throwing billions of dollars towards things you do not understand (and likely misunderstand). It also says feed the poor. Think of the lives that could have been saved without the diversion of so many billions to the pockets of the climate charlatans.

Not to mention the mounds of treasure wasted on bird- and bat-massacring, dark, satanic windmills and solar farms.


One should note land stewardship is doctrine/dogma. There are overwhelming reasons.
For most of history, there were very few landowners. For example, under William (after 1066 AD) there were only 6 to 10 thousand landowners with the Church owning about 1/3 of the land. The system, in feudal times, saw the landowners effecting leasing land to land “holders” when put the land into production and paid the landowners. Going further backwards, during the Old Kingdom of Egypt, the King (Pharaoh) owned all the land and used a system that would have been familiar to the Earls of England during the Middle Ages.
The doctrine/dogma was created at the time when very, very few actually owned land and needed encouragement to “steward” the land.
What’s interesting is the historic continuation of the God/the King created/owns the land into the State owns the land and thus you’d best be a good steward and do as I tell you. See 1 Samual Chapter 8.


The “koranic” equivalent is exactly the same – since Islam is one of the “book religions” just as Judaism and Christianity. The Old Testament/Torah have the same status in all three.
(And I hope it’s news to no one here that Allah/Jahve/God are just different names for the same deity)



Leonard Lane


Is this what Obama would call “clinging to” his bible?


And Nero fiddled…


What a thing to say. It could inspire the fanatical cultists of AGW and ISIS. After all they admire
blowing people up, wrecking the economies of the west, enslaving people…etc.etc.


God and (politics/science) do not mix.

Jaakko Kateenkorva

John Kerry’s purpose is to make Barak Obama look good and desperate times call desperate measures.

Harry Passfield

…a duty to protect and sustain his (sic) first creation, Earth, the planet.

There’s a piece of arrogance. How does Kerry know that the Earth was (his) God’s ‘first creation’? Or maybe he believes the universe is only 6,000 years old.


Well Kerry is wrong about the earth being God’s first creation. I think it was “Let there be light.” So light was first.

M Courtney

Lucky guess, back in old Mesopotamia, that the Big Bang preceded the Sun, Moon and Stars…
Perhaps Kerry meant “that was first His Creation” instead of “his (sic) first creation”?


“Is John Kerry mentally ill?”
That is a rhetorical question, isn’t it?
“And Muslim-majority countries are among the most vulnerable.”
And they are also among the prime members of OPEC. You know John, that nasty petroleum stuff that supposedly contributes to gorebull warming.

Reagan’s former SOS George Shultz still pulls the strings of the puppet Secretary of State officially. That’s what’s going on there.


Ah, it’s Reagan’s fault. A welcome change from the usual It’s Booshs fault.

This is just funnier than ‘ell… and eventually, if the Republicans ever regain power, Ant-nee will be wondering what’s wrong with the Republican Party when they take the lead on glow bull warming.


Didn’t you Yanks fire a Secretary of the Interior for quoting Scripture concerning taking care of the environment?
Oh, yeah, he was a Republican…
Never mind.


Reagan’s first Secretary of the Interior 1981-1983, James Watt, was quite hostile to the environmental left. They lut a bullseye on him for his opening up large areas of Federal lands to timber and coal industries. He is a huge believer in personal property rights, and stopped many species listings as “endangered”, which is an abused tool today by enviros running Obama’s agencies.
He had to resign after he made an insensitive “diversity” remark about an advisory panel makeup.
After he left as SecInt, he worked as a lobbyist in DC until clinton came to office. The enviros in the Clinton Administration had the DoJ settle their vendetta against Mr Watt with indictments for improper influence peddling activites. 25 felony indictments but all they got was 1 misdeanor conviction on document withholding from the GrandJury that indicted him. It was pure political payback from a corrupt democrat DoJ prosecutor to a political foe. Sound familiar???

James Watt resigned, not because he quoted scripture, but because he cited a fact about his team in a politically incorrect manner. He joked about it:
“We have every mixture you can have. I have a black. I have a woman, two Jews and a cripple.”
Predictably, the left went ballistic — disregarding as usual comments made by their own, which were much worse. Watt also made the huge mistake of believing that humor was not a bad thing. He ended up resigning.
The anti-Watt attacks were pure Alinsky:
Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it… Go after people… people hurt faster than institutions.
So Watt resigned. But as we see, it doesn’t cut both ways. Now we have a Secretary of State who campaigns on the climate scare, instead of taking care of business. That is already causing a negative reaction. Also according to Alinsky:
RULE #7: A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag. Don’t become old news.
Twenty years without the predicted runaway global warming — or any global warming at all, for that matter — is a scare that has dragged on too long. People are bored. It is old news. Worse, it is old news that is wrong.
Napoleon advised: Never interrupt an enemy when he is making a mistake. The global warming scare has morphed into a growing mistake. All they have to do is admit that they got it wrong. But human nature being what it is, they can never admit that they were wrong.
Go, John Kerry.


No surprise, no, none at all. Who is the best quoter of Scripture around?


Fack is, Ol’ Beelzebub would be a lot more clever than this one. Who, really, is gonna appreciate this statement? John ‘Ricebutt’ Kerry ought to have been more concerned about the blowback.


There is no Warming but Anthropogenic, and Al-Gore is it’s messenger.
Oh, crap. Wrong religion.

Bill Parsons

On the other hand….
CAGW is a fatal disease. The vectors of this disease are: the imminence of funding, comical levels of public sympathy, powerful billionaire friends, the slough of “green” goodness, club membership replete with Twitterbook and Faceplant accounts, funded research projects, mass media fawning over a lost way of life… Allah the above… These symptoms all lead in one direction: Mellowing, Softness of the backbone, Brain-rot and eventual moral self-destruction. Carey is sharing the world’s most pervasively over-manufactured and over-sold poison pill. With their professed love of martyrdom, ISIL-ites will swallow a handful each, God willing! Complacent, gooey, mellow self-righteousness and the ultimate internal moral rot of the over-fed will follow. Let the drones leaflet their most isolated training camps. Send them some green scarves out of good material.

While the force is not strong in Kerry the bull sheet is worse than we thought and clearly at unprecedented levels 😉


“John Kerry,” as for Stephan Lewandowski,” makes an interesting anagram…

None of the quotes in this story support the headline. Please stick to the science and let others practice the hyperbole.

“Confronting climate change is, in the long run, one of the greatest challenges that we face, and you can see this duty or responsibility laid out in Scriptures clearly, beginning in Genesis. And Muslim-majority countries are among the most vulnerable.
you are right, nothing about protecting muslim countries in any of the quotes.

The headline promises words of this sort were uttered: ‘Scriptures Commands America To Protect Muslims From Global Warming. ‘ So tell me, where do you find those words in the item you quoted? Answer: They aren’t there. Not even implied. There’s no singling out of Muslims for special protection, There’s no implication that America should be their protector for climate or anything else. The headline is pure political spin. I’m no fan of Kerry. But people ought to have the decency to attack him for what he says, not for things we wish he had said.

What’s next? Replacing “Our Father” with “Lord Obama”?

Owen in GA

That did get some folks in Venezuela in trouble with the church.


“Confronting climate change is, in the long run, one of the greatest challenges that we face”.
I don’t get it with Kerry. He has been on the climate change band wagon since day one as Sec. of State.
We have idiots in the Middle East who are still in the year 400. War after war. Conflict after conflict, due to religion, not climate change. As Secretary of State, should he not be trying to stop the conflicts wth more ferver than his stupid remarks about climate change? And it really pi$$e$ me off that Kerry assumes everone believes in the Bible, especially Genesis. Yeah, it took seven days right? How dare those million year-old fossels conflict with Genesis?
Kerry needs to stick with what he is supposed to do: his job, not climate change religion.


No matter whether a Democrat or Republican wins the presidency in two years, the new administration will almost certainly be an improvement.


don’t bet on that.


The two parties are one. It is just a delusion to believe there are are two separate parties.

Alas not. They all degenerate into something disgusting.

Sometimes I deeply regret reading here at WUWT. This piece is one example why. Regardless, where else does one find the truth … even if we do not want to hear it?

“Two words: Religion matters. We’re making that a mantra here at the State Department.”

It has begun.

Mac the Knife

US Secretary of State John Kerry is just one of the environmental lunatics running Our Dear Leaders’ Gaian asylum.
Is John Kerry mentally ill?
Not because he invoke a deity or religion. Nor does he appear to be mentally ill, when compared to the rest of the current US administration and the acolytes of the First Temple of Anthropogenic Global Warming.
However, compared to those imbued with knowledge of the sciences, common sense, reasoning minds, and wisdom, he is clinically bat shit crazy!


The answer is “Yes,” to the extent that anyone who seeks to control others is a megalomaniac and a compulsive liar who will say whatever he feels is necessary to garner the support of those who are willing to be ruled, John Kerry is also mentally ill.
He feels no greater commitment or obligation to keep his words than an actor feels obliged to live a script. It is all in the interest of becoming a tyrant.

And our response to this challenge ought to be rooted in a sense of stewardship of Earth. And for me and for many of us here today, that responsibility comes from God.”

The Boomers have long dreamed of nationalizing churches.
If history is any example, perhaps next will come the checks to the pastors to help them with the building repairs.
