Has anyone else noticed how the Christian right now associates environmentalism with evil? This has come to my attention a couple of times recently while dealing with a couple of customers. In fact I have noticed it for a long time but never thought about it explicitly. I guess the logic is that environmentalism is defined as a liberal agenda, and everyone knows that liberals are all evil. It also results from the belief that God will take care of everything and there is nothing that man can do - that we are powerless when pitted against bibilical prophecy. What I finally realized is that many fundamentalist churches operate with clear and unjustified political agendas. I can see where political bias is justified [in their view] when it comes to social issues like abortion, or gay marriage, as these do go directly to the core of their beliefs, but anti-environmentalism is not justified. There is NOTHING that any church should have to say about environmentalism in the negative - though there is a religious justification for a church arguing about our responsibility as caretakers of the planet. I am starting to think that there are a good number of churches that need to have their tax privileges revoked because many are clearly operating with pure anti-anything-liberal political agendas that go beyond the bounds of their beliefs; in fact it is painfully evident at this point. So why are these politically weighted churches still classified as tax exempt? I think it's time to end this scam.
