Evangelical Climate Initiative

It’s not every day that one can find something to admire in the politics of conservative North American evangelicalism. But the Evangelical Climate Initiative, launched yesterday, seems truly laudable.

Indeed! And Amen to that.

Too bad the same conservatives that voted Bush into office obviously don't comprehend his view of global warming. Sure, it's laudable, but their politics and faith are simply wrong-headed.

You've definitely got that right. Still, I don't think this should undermine the value of the current environmental initiative. Even if they are being inconsistent, it's a happy inconsistency!

Well this comment has nothing to do with this post but your poll.

I object, and I need not even say why! I cannot in good conscience vote for any of them because the one I prefer isn't on the list at all. "Hier stehe ich, ich kann nicht anders! Gott hilfe mich!!!"

Notice how Rick Warren signed it? That raised a few eyebrows.

Ja, Jim, Gott helfe dir, du frecher Kerl. ;-)

Francis Schaeffer was arguing for a distinctly Evangelical & Reformed environmentalism back in the 1970's in his "Pollution and the Death of Man" (Vol V of The Complete Works). It is good to see that Evangelicals are taking these issues seriously at last.
