In the Anglican Church of Canada, climate change has replaced sin

Once upon a time The Anglican Church of Canada used to believe that the biggest threat to humanity’s well-being was sin – mankind’s deliberate rebellion against God, causing estrangement from him and from one’s fellow man. According to the Book that the Anglican Church used to use as a reliable guide to How Everything Fits Together, sin has infected not only every person, but the entire creation; the only remedy for individuals is to accept the free gift of redemption offered through Christ’s atoning death on the cross, where he bore the punishment for your sins and mine. The remedy for creation is in Christ’s second coming when entropy will be reversed and there will be a new heavens and a new earth. 2 Peter 3:8ff

A caboodle of Anglican illuminati, including Michael Ingham – who obviously does believe in something other than marrying homosexuals – has signed a declaration that states:

As faith leaders, we believe that unchecked climate change is one of the greatest threats to peace and prosperity for our world.

These Anglican priests have thrown their hand in with David Suzuki, who appears to be an agnostic; an agnostic is a more honest variant of non-believer that an atheist, since an atheist claims to know that God does not exists – something, as Bertrand Russell observed, that cannot be known without knowing everything that is knowable. It is an uneasy alliance, since the betrayal of these Anglican priests has more in common with the dishonesty of the atheist than the scrupled bewilderment of the agnostic. Much as I disagree with David Suzuki, I almost feel obliged to warn him about the brood of vipers that has chosen to associate with him.

  1. It looks like the ACoC is piggybacking on the passionate belief of the environmental movement. Even if the Greens are often wrong, at least they believe in something.

  2. “These Anglican priests have thrown their hand in with . . . an agnostic”

    Birds of a feather flock together.
