Global warming for me at least is a complicated issue. Both parties in the US are split with Democrats claiming the Earth will die in like 6 months and Republicans not acknowledging a damn thing. I myself stand somewhere in the middle.
Evidence is pretty conclusive that the Earth is warming up, but the exact cause cannot be proven with 100% accuracy yet. Before you bitch at me and say it’s us stupid, remember that Earth has heated up many times throughout history. But I digress. It would seem that there really isn’t another stance on the issue. That is of course unless you’re famed televangelist Jerry Falwell.
Falwell has a different theory about global warming and the church’s growing involvement. Falwell sees global warming as an attempt by Satan himself to redirect the church’s primary focus from evangelism to environmentalism. Furthermore, Falwell believes that naive Christian leaders are being duped by arguments like those presented in Former Vice President Al Gore’s documentary “An Inconvenient Truth”, or as Falwell calls it, “A Convenient Untruth”.
Now if anyone would know anything about duping people it would be Falwell and his fellow televangelists. They have been doing to their viewers for years and profiting like mad at the same time. As for “naive” Christian leaders… Hello! Look at your own unwavering belief in the Bible and all it’s fairytales. But that’s a topic for another story.
Falwell then shared some wisdom from the Bible by noting that God would ultimately maintain the Earth until Jesus returns. So while Christians should be responsible environmentalists, they shouldn’t be “first-class nuts.” Now isn’t that the pot calling the kettle black?
