From the Back Cover

Is the United Nations the institution upon which the future depends, or an instrument of socialist tyranny? What are the principles which the UN and its masters serve? How would the fulfillment of the UN's stated objectives affect you and your family?

In Freedom on the Altar, journalist William Norman Grigg documents that the UN's envisioned new world order would:

* Indoctrinate children in socialist values, which may include compulsory "volunteer" labor:

* Exercise control over family life, which would include coercive population control, parental "licensing," and the seizure of children from parents deemed "incompetent" by UN-approved officials;

* Eradicate America's distinctive culture, free institutions, and Biblically-derived values; and

* Create an official world religion and persecute those who profess traditional Biblical religion.

By James P. Brett on April 4, 2002
Format: Paperback
The author, William Norman Grigg, is senior editor for The New American, a publication of the John Birch Society. The JBS has been at the forefront of the effort to get the US out of the UN. This book, written in 1995, is still an important work. Mr. Grigg has meticulously foot-noted his expose into what direction the UN elite want to take the world, especially the US. Beneath its veneer and rhetoric, the UN is a socialist/communist organization. Its vision of rights is completely opposite of that of America's Founders, as Mr. Grigg explains. Read the book to see actual quotes from Americans who support the UN. You will be surprised, as I was. Our children are being programmed in government schools to accept the legitimacy and authority of the UN, and this does not bode well for the future of this country. I urge you to read this book and, if you want to stay current, subscribe to The New American.

Mr. Grigg holds your intrest with his easy to read style, while presenting this thoroughly documented report of how the goal of the United Nations is bring about world peace by having everyone recieve the same UN aproved education and practice their aproved one-world pagan religion. If you disagree... Well, that won't be an option.
Read this book. Learn. You won't get this information on the nightly news.

This is one of the most enlightening and informative books I've read on the U.N., its design, and its goal to enslave all of humanity. Mr. Grigg does not write from the viewpoint of one who is paranoid (as the mainstream media would label one espousing such views). Rather, he meticulously documents and supports his arguments and reasoning, primarily from materials published by the UN itself.
Through the UN's own material, Mr. Grigg shows how the organization seeks to gain ultimate control of every facet of our lives, while deceptively claiming to be the guardian of "human rights." Mr. Grigg shows that, in reality, the U.N. actively promotes: a culture of death through its policies on population control, a religious environment devoid of everything having to do with the God of the Bible and traditional Protestantism, radical environmental policies (based on bogus and unproven "scientific research"), governmental control of children through the granting of so-called "children's rights" that "liberate" them from "unfit" parents, etc. In short, Mr. Grigg touches on things that affect our daily lives and will have profound effects on future generations--on our friends and loved ones.
Mr. Grigg points out very accurately that the so-called "rights" so easily granted by UN bureaucrats in plush, red-carpeted offices can and are just as easily taken away by the same elite who want to rule the world.
Yet, it is not simply a book of doomsday warnings. The most important section tells readers what they personally can do to help stop the eradication of our God-given rights and freedoms by the UN.
This is must reading for all those who are concerned about what's happening in the world today.

This book reveals the evil forces behind the United Nations. It is not a club of well-meaning, idealistic Christians. The founding of the UN has been the work of Communists. In truth the UN is an organization that has been leading a global campaign against: - the Christian family - traditional Biblical values - the nationhood of America The UN is the world's anti-people planner. How can an organization be so presumptuous that it makes guidelines for world population? This tyranny needs to be ended. Distributing contraceptives to teenagers without parents' consent, and moving the world to an antichristian New World Order. If you are pro-life, pro-family, and pro-gun, then you need to read this book to grasp that this global organization is against your freedoms. The UN is busy promoting abortion, destruction of the family, and eradication of Biblical religion in the name of "social progress". Since I read that book, I am an absolute UN opponent. The world would be a better place without that kind of an organization. What I like about this book is William Norman Grigg's strong Christian conviction that is revealed on every page. He says the truth: the world's only hope for peace is not the United Nations, but it is Jesus Christ! He is the Prince of Peace the Bible says!
