It seems that Walter Crankcase---er, excuse me, Walter Cronkite is teaming up with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Here's the link:

I wonder what those here on MORONI think about this in light of Cronkite's open advocation of globalism and world government. For example here's two paragraphs from the January 2000 "The New American" magazine:

In an October 19th address to the World Federalist Association (WFA), former CBS anchorman Walter Cronkite, who was once acclaimed as "the most trusted man in America," served up a similarly apocalyptic vision. Speaking at UN headquarters before an audience that included Hillary Rodham Clinton, Cronkite insisted that only through the creation of a UN-administered world government could humanity avoid extinction. "It seems to many of us that if we are to avoid the eventual catastrophic world conflict we must strengthen the United Nations as a first step toward a world government," declared the former newscaster as he received the WFA's "Norman Cousins Global Governance Award." "To do that, of course, we Americans will have to yield up some of our sovereignty. That would be a bitter pill. It would take a lot of courage, a lot of faith in the new order."

However, insisted Cronkite, "We cannot defer this responsibility to posterity. Time will not wait. Democracy, civilization itself, is at stake. Within the next few years we must change the basic structure of our global community from the present anarchic system of war and ever more destructive weaponry to a new system governed by a democratic UN federation" a perhaps unwitting allusion to the Star Trek vision. According to Cronkite, the world is divided between the children of light and the children of darkness the former being the WFA and like-minded globalists, the latter being the "reactionary movement" led by the ever-insidious "religious right-wing." Cronkite acknowledged he was "preaching to the choir," and his speech was delivered in the cadences of an altar call, urging the unredeemed to join the children of light in their worship of collective human power. Quoting historian Carl Van Doren, Cronkite declared, "History is now choosing the founders of the World Federation. Any person who can be among that number and fails to do so has lost the noblest opportunity of a lifetime."
