"Going Green"

Michael Patton @ Parchment and Pen has a nice little rant today on "Green Evangelicals." It is well worth the read and he has captured my thoughts exactly! I am sure it will create quite a long "comments" trail.

An excerpt:

I just don’t get it. I am not saying don’t recycle. I am not saying don’t have environmental concerns (when legitimate). I am not saying don’t save a whale, monkey, frog, bumblebee, a flea, or a tree (to each his own). What I am saying is don’t speak with the same volume about these things as you do about human lives—about babies, children, the unprotected innocent souls. Don’t EVER speak with the same volume. There is a dichotomy—a biblical dichotomy. They don’t even belong in the same discussion. It is comparable to the condemnation of body odor of Osama Bin Laden while defending his terrorism. There are bigger issues. Much bigger issues.

It also appears that Thomas Nelson Publishers has gone "Green." - you have to be kidding me!

Well, I would have to agree with ya bro. I am big into "going green" myself. It is catchy and I love that it is cool to take responsibility for the mess we have made with the Earth. However, the neglect and abuse of our very human race, especially our children far outweighs that of which trash can to throw your coke can in. I think honestly, cleaning up the Earth is just easier to face than helping in the lives of others.
