PROTEST THE EXTREMIST’S WAR ON THE ENVIRONMENT

The Environment

Voices of the Fundamentalist Christian Extremists

  • Jerry Falwell (Pastor Thomas Road Baptist Church): “Environmental action is Satan’s attempt to redirect the church’s primary focus.”
  • James Dobson (Focus on the Family) and Gary Bauer (Family Research Council): Environmentalists are “using the global warming controversy to shift the emphasis away from the great moral issues of our time.”
  • Richard Land (President of the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission): Environmentalist “exaggerated or baseless fears lead to unreasonable policies that can do a lot more harm than the things feared.”
  • David Barton (Evangelical pastor and former vice chair of the Texas Republican Party): “It’s not global warming. It’s the judgment of God.”
  • Evangelical Declaration on Global Warming:” states “there is no convincing scientific evidence that human contribution to greenhouse gases is causing dangerous global warming” and maintains that “reducing greenhouse gases cannot achieve significant reductions in future global temperatures.”

Voices of the Political Extremists

  • Sen. Ted Cruz (D. Texas): “The last 15 years, there has been no recorded warming. Contrary to all the theories that they are expounding, it hasn’t happened,
  • Sen. Rand Paul (R. Kentucky) “… mocked concerns about global warming, rising sea levels and endangered polar bears Thursday, accusing the White House of being run by “extremists” and “hysterics” who don’t care about jobs.”
  • Sen. Marco Rubio (R. Florida): “We can pass a bunch of laws that will destroy our economy, but it isn’t going to change the weather.”
  • Janet Parshall (Political pundit and radio host): Describes the environmentalist’s “lust for political power” and “spiritual deception” are “deadly to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”
  • Glen Beck (Talk show host): Environmentalist hold “anti-human” beliefs …worshiping the ancient god of Babylon, the god of weather.”

WARNING:

“Just as corporate America has infused the GOP with an anti-science ideology, the Religious Right is more than eager to provide cover for politicians and their corporate backers by claiming God’s blessing for their dishonest assertions and destructive policies.”
