The climate buffoonery of mainline churches

Filed under: environment — David Jenkins @ 8:30 pm

They’ve all – Anglican, Methodist, Roman Catholic, Baptist – fallen for climate change chicanery; and the power-mongers of worldly and – in the case of Rome – corrupt churches have chosen a climategate moment to redouble their efforts at sinking into irrelevancy.

A total of 16 leaders of Christian Churches in the UK, including the Archbishop of Westminster Vincent Nichols and the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, will join in a service to call on world leaders to act against climate change.

The ecumenical service that will be held in London this Saturday, December 5 aims to urge political leaders meeting in Copenhagen to ‘Act Now To Stop Climate Change’, Independent Catholic News reports.

Among others slated to attend are Bishop Declan Lang of Clifton, Head of the International Department of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference; Bishop John Rawsthorne of Hallam, Chair of CAFOD, Revd David Gamble, Chair of the Methodist Conference; Reverend Pat Took, Chair, London Baptist Association; Steve Clifford, General Director of the Evangelical Alliance; Colonel Brian Peddle, Chief Secretary for The Salvation Army UK and Republic of Ireland, the report said.
