…there’s no need for the church of Jesus Christ to be wasting its time gullibly falling for all of this global warming hocus-pocus. We need to give our total focus to the business of reaching this world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and stop running down meaningless rabbit trails that get our focus off of our heavenly purpose.
So says Jerry Falwell, the ‘nationally recognized Christian minister and television show host’. Some of you are sceptical, I can tell. But it is OK, he has been ‘intently studying this subject’ and has amassed evidence and ‘has proof to back up his claim’. Take for example the fact that ‘in November, for the second consecutive month, temperatures across the continental U.S. were cooler than average’. Sounds convincing to me.
Apparently ‘the Bible teaches that God will maintain the Earth until Jesus returns’, so we don’t need to worry. There is a TV news report about this here, but you might have to watch a 15 second TV advert about SUVs first. Another of the quotes above was from this brief report.
This is, I think, quite good news for those who care about environmental things. Falwell saying these things will hopefully help convince people that the opposite is true. Perhaps.
