Sacrifice To Mother Earth: Climate Activists Hail ‘Heroic’ Man For Burning Himself Alive In Front Of US Supreme Court

Breanna Claussen

Climate activist and Buddhist Wynn Bruce died from his injuries on Saturday after lighting himself on fire outside the United States Supreme Court in protest of “climate change.”

Bruce, a 50-year-old resident of Boulder, Colorado, appeared to have planned his suicide a year in advance, posting comments on Facebook in April of 2021 with the date of his death, which coincided with “earth day,” alongside a fire emoji.

Police extinguished the flames which enveloped the man and attempted to calm him before airlifting him to the hospital, where he later succumbed to his wounds the following day.

Although much of the response to Bruce’s actions has not been positive, a disturbing number of social media users took to platforms to praise the “self-immolation” of the man, referring to him as a “compassionate” hero.

A Buddhist priest from Boulder, Dr. K. Kritee, who knew Bruce, Tweeted about how “moved” she was by his “deeply fearless act of compassion to bring attention to [the] climate crisis.”

“This guy was my friend. He meditated with our sangha [Buddhist community]. This act is not suicide,” she insisted.

One Tweet, which well summarizes the troubling praise Bruce’s actions are receiving on Social media platforms, reads: “Wynn Bruce. He died. So that you might survive.”

In April of 2018, David Buckel, a 60-year-old retired “gay rights attorney,” similarly set himself on fire in Brooklyn in protest of the so-called “climate crisis.”

“Most humans on the planet now breathe air made unhealthy by fossil fuels, and many die early deaths as a result. My early death by fossil fuel reflects what we are doing to ourselves,” he wrote in a statement sent to the media shortly prior to his death.

Buckel’s statement also made reference to Buddhist Monks who “self-immolated” in various protests.

Demonic “Self-Immolation” In Buddhism 

Although many simply frame such actions as a dramatic form of protest, often committed by Buddhist monks, the history of “self-immolation” in the eastern religion reveals just how demonic it truly is.

According to a report from The Journal of Indian and Asian Studies, “self-immolation” is a “practice in Buddhism of voluntarily terminating one’s own life or offering parts of one’s own body usually by setting oneself ablaze.” 

The report describes from Buddhist literature how prominent figures did this as a form of human sacrifice and worship. It further includes the story of a Buddhist leader who “plunges himself into a wood fire” and another who “throws himself off a cliff” in “heroic” forms of “self-sacrifice” and protest.

Scripture’s various accounts describing Demon possession shed stunning light on this Buddhist text. According to the Bible, demons caused people to self-harm by cutting themselves (Mark 5:5), drowning themselves, and, pertinent to our current discussion, throwing themselves into fires (Mark 9:22).

Mark 9:21-22 KJV – “And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a child. And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us.”

In one of the additional accounts, Jesus cast a “legion” of demons out of a man and into a herd of pigs. The possessed animals then flung themselves off of a nearby cliff (Mark 5:13).

Climate Worship

Wynn Bruce and Daniel Buckel were demonically motivated by two false religions, the pagan human sacrifice found in Buddhism and the environmental religion of earth worship.

This “mother earth” worship has become increasingly prevalent in our society and, as the Bible explains, stems from a rejection of God.

Romans chapter one deals with this plainly, when the apostle Paul warns against people who “exchanged the truth of God for the lie” by worshiping and serving the creation “rather than the Creator” (Romans 1:25).

The religious aspect of “climate change” has been further demonstrated by the branding of Wynn Bruce as a martyr for the cause.

What took place on the steps of the Supreme Court Friday was a person plainly offering himself up as a sacrifice to “mother earth.” Considering the praise he is receiving, that should be very alarming.

Iran’s New President Is Anything But ‘Moderate’… But The Western World Prefers The Illusion

They know Iran has nefarious, wicked, and demonic intentions to develop nuclear weapons to destroy Israel and destroy the West. Nonetheless, the illusion of "moderate" makes them feel better. It's much more pleasant to convince themselves that the threat of Iran has diminished with its new president.

Neglecting Our Stewardship: Why Many Church Leaders Are Failing To Call Christians To Vote

Jesus calls His followers to be “salt and light,” a teaching that includes our voting. How can we authentically claim to live fully for God yet neglect to represent His values? Shouldn’t we care who leads our school board, our state and who represents us in Congress?
