Not Only is God Green

…he HATES George Bush and will direct his people to vote him and his silly a$$ed Rethuglicans O.U.T. OUT. (And then make them roast in the burny fires of hell, blahblahblah, but that’s later.)

Jesus loves green, this I know!
‘Cause Bill Moyers told me so.

A new holy war is growing within the conservative evangelical community, with implications for both the global environment and American politics. For years liberal Christians and others have made protection of the environment a moral commitment. Now a number of conservative evangelicals are joining the fight, arguing that man’s stewardship of the planet is a biblical imperative and calling for action to stop global warming.

But they are being met head-on by opposition from their traditional evangelical brethren who adamantly support the Bush administration in downplaying the threat of global warming and other environmental perils. The political stakes are high: Three out of every four white evangelical voters chose George W. Bush in 2004. “Is God Green?” explores how a serious split among conservative evangelicals over the environment and global warming could reshape American politics.

  1. I find myself caught in the middle. As an evangelical Christian, I DO believe that we should be good stewards of creation. Where I disagree with “crunchy” Christians (if you will), is on HOW to go about doing that. And I reject the assertion that in order to be environmentally aware, one must accept the conventional wisdom about what the state of the environment and its causes are.

    Bill Moyers is a galling sanctimonious turd. This crap is all FUD and exploitation; converging the so-called “Christian Right” which Liberals have been reflexively taught to fear as some kind of theocracy-movement with their dearest Green-dreams – it’s bafflingly weird-news simply meant to confuse the media-watching electorate.

    While as a christian I feel we are indeed called to be good steward it seems to me that given a choice between, say, the survival of the equivalent of a snail darter in a stream in Chad or the construction of a hydroelectric plant that will improve the quality of life for the folks there I somehow think that christian theology comes down on the side of the humans.
