You can hardly go one day without being confronted with a story about global warming. Which is an amazing fact, given that there is no proof that global warming caused by man is or ever has been a problem. In fact depending upon which part of recorded history you study, the opposite could appear to be true. Again I refer to the 1970's when global cooling was considered to be the biggest problem facing earth. Today we are given the treat to hear from those in the religious community on this "dire" problem of global warming. From the wires;

In an open letter to be published on Tuesday, more than 20 religious groups urged U.S. leaders to limit greenhouse gas emissions and invest in renewable energy sources. The letter is signed by top officials of the National Council of Churches, the Islamic Society of North America and the political arm of the Reform branch of Judaism.
Top officials from several mainline Christian denominations, including the Episcopal Church, United Methodist Church, Presbyterian Church, African Methodist Episcopal Church and Alliance of Baptists also signed the letter, along with leaders of regional organizations and individual churches.
Rev. Joel Hunter, a board member of the National Association of Evangelicals, also signed the letter, though that group has not officially taken a stance on global warming due to opposition from some of its more conservative members."

They are advocating global warming as a "moral and spiritual issue". While I am not shocked that liberal theologians would buy into such ideology, it does surprise me slightly that a board member of the NAE has signed on. But this is the sign of the times in which we live. People of the "cloth" more concerned with a fictitious problem like global warming, while millions of babies are being aborted in our country. If you are a member of any of the churches or denominations who signed on to this letter, beware of your leaders, as they are either people who lack the intelligence to do real research, or they are complicit in the biggest fraud of our era. Either way, you would do well to find a place of worship that cares much more for the Word of God and what it has to say, than Al Gore and his green kool aid drinkers!
