Worshipping Mother Earth

'Environmentalism' is the new worldwide faith, writes J.D. Longstreet.

At the center of this new faith is a single deity. Mother Earth!

If I try to keep my house clean and orderly or wash and style my hair, does that mean I worship my house and my hair?

Environmentalism is a 'feel-good' religion based on a myth!

As opposed to your 'feel-bad' religion based on a myth?

It is a Pagan religion and Christian churches, and Christian men and women, should have nothing to do with it.

Christians everywhere, you heard him! Please stop recycling, car pooling, and turning off your lights when you leave the room.

It stands against the tenets of Christianity and is, at it's very base, blasphemous!

It is against our teachings to conserve the planet! We want to destroy it as quickly as possible so we can move on to the next life!

You know, a fact is a fact. It makes absolutely no difference whether you, or I accept that fact. It remains a fact, a truth. No matter how much we try to ignore it, or work around it, like the elephant in the room' it is always a looming presence. Facts are like that...

There is rarely anything as dangerous as 'the arrogance of ignorance'.

Now I'm really confused, what's he talking about?

A favorite quote of mine is brought to mind...

I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours. - Stephen Roberts

J.D. Longstreet is definitely an atheist when it comes to the 'religion of environmentalism'.

Lol, good response. The sarcasm was well placed. While I am skeptical of some of the claims of global warming, I know it isn't something to take lightly. Who does it hurt to shut lights off when I leave a room? Or drive less? Or recycle? This has nothing to do with religion...which usually entails specific beliefs or traditions. Is recycling an act of worship? That guy is way off and using the Christian brand in that way is quite shameful.

Environmentalism isn't a feel-good religion; it's a feel-bad religion. I can't distinguish it from Catholicism, except by the package it's sold in.

The whole "green" movement is based on misinformed guilt, complete with its own "climate change" apocalypse.

Environmentalism is full of meaningless rituals and built-in evilness... How many times have you heard environmentalists weep over what we, just by existing, are doing to the planet? (which in many cases they personify as "Mother Earth" in the fashion of other human-like religious deities)

P.S. I'm neither religious nor an environmentalist, although I am a nature-lover, and have a background in earth science.
