Anglican eco-bigotry

The Anglican church, ever willing to bend to the latest fad, has declared that the environment is a top Anglican priority:

Secondly, we want to try our best to make sure that all Anglicans see this (the environment) as their primary work because some people don’t think it is.

Oops, forgot about the Gospel – better mention it otherwise people will say we are no longer a church:

They actually think that somehow preaching the Gospel – which, of course, is our number one task – makes this work of a lesser importance. It’s one of the five marks of mission of our church, and safeguarding the integrity of creation is a core Gospel issue.

We all know what this is really about, though – nudge, nudge: Down with Capitalism! Workers of the World Unite! Viva Che!

In addition to that, I’m here to emphasize that the economic crisis the world is facing at the moment is an environmental opportunity because we actually can redirect our priorities. Clearly, the old capitalist system has failed and we don’t need to actually go back to it.

How can I join this Angli-Gaia revolution? You need an Internet connection, even though it was spawned from the evil, carbon belching, capitalist, military-industrial complex ARPANET:

Q: What would membership entail?

A: First, the person has to be able to connect to the Internet. We can’t really communicate with people successfully without using it.

In case anyone has any doubts that this is a totalitarian junta, be aware that, once in control, they will dictate what you sing:

every parish is required to do an environmental audit, which has to do with what they teach, what they preach, what they sing,

What you drive:

what cars they use, whether they could change their cars,

And even when you are singing in the celestial choir, they will be fiddling with your grave:

Graveyards, particularly, can be little oases of the protection of threatened species.



  1. I’m afraid the gay lobby better watch out. “Green” is the new “Gay.”

    Agreed. Same tactics, many of the same activists.
