Yay Baptists!

Finally, a shift in the Christian camp towards a small recognition that we live on a planet and need to care for it... the Southern Baptists have come out saying they want to do something about climate change.

It is a good thing to at least make a few moves in that direction, no matter what you "believe" about climate change.

Whenever I get off my bicycle or get out of my car and see someone just sitting in their car with the engine running for no reason, I always want to say, "Excuse me, I have to breathe this air, would you mind turning your car off?" (I don't, though.)

Crusty old guy, I am.

The interesting thing about Baptists is that no individual or group of individuals really speak for Baptists. Still, the Southern Baptist Environment and Climate Initiative that has been signed and affirmed by a decent number of individual Southern Baptists is a really good start. I've never been able to figure out why environmentalism isn't something that all believers readily embrace.

Oh, they're just trying to copy the Catholics. Only difference is the Catholics call it a new sin, while the SBC calls it a new initiative.
