The Enviro-Seduction of the Church

By Rick Pearcey • July 21, 2010, 08:42 AM

How Green Is Your Idol? Or, as Joseph Farah writes at WorldNetDaily:

The lead on the Associated Press story was, "Where would Jesus drill?"

The story went on to explain how Christian leaders were going green -- decrying the devastating Gulf of Mexico oil spill, supporting "cleaner energy" and pushing the faithful to consume less.

Bottom line? Team Obama is attempting to seduce Christian leaders to do their anti-capitalist, environmentalist wacko, socialist bidding in the name of God.

That's right. Using the backdrop of the gulf oil disaster for "an interfaith prayer service and tour," the Sierra Club has called in longtime communist apologist Jim Wallis and Rabbi David N. Saperstein of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, both of whom serve on Barack Obama's Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.

"I take a backseat to no one as a conservationist, someone who recognizes God has given man an important job assignment to be good stewards over His creation," Farah says. "No discerning Christian would ever dispute that. However, God also is the author of private property and limited government -- two institutions that would be abolished if people like Wallis had their way.

"Because we are bombarded night and day by green propaganda that makes no distinction between good stewardship and tyranny in the guise of environmentalism, plenty of non-discerning Christians are falling prey to the false gospel being peddled by Wallis and the Sierra Club."

Farah concludes: "Where would Jesus drill? Jesus would drill into the hearts of people who live in a world of misplaced priorities. That's where Jesus would drill."
