    Evangelicals Stand Up for the EPA on Climate Change

    So there are some religious people who align their beliefs with the realities the world presents. Personally, I prefer to keep my politics, my religion, and my understandings of science in distinct and seperate areas of understanding.

    I don't know that most christians are left wing, but given Christ's philosophy, it does make sense.

    My guess is those founding pastors bought into a shitload of carbon credits and green crappola and are watching their investments go down the tubes... I had a group of these clowns as angel investors in a tech company once..

    The Parable of the Good Steward is very much applicable to how we maintain the planet that we live on and that our descendents will live on.

    There is no confusion in those following Christ's teachings.

    "And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need." - Acts 2:44-45

    "For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs." - 1 Timothy 6:10

    "No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money." - Matthew 6:24

    "For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' ” - Galatians 5:14

    "And He called him and said to him, 'What is this I hear about you? Give an account of your stewardship, for you can no longer be steward.' He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much; and he who is unrighteous in a very little thing is unrighteous in much. You cannot serve both God and mammon." - Luke 16:2,10,13

    You have to say something truthful before others will testify to the truth.
