Jerry Falwell's worried about you. He wants to warn you away from bad ideas and information. It is usually satanic and evil.
He is especially worried about this global warming hoo ha.
For him, it is Satan's attempt to redirect the church's primary focus.
Why save the species, when we can hunt down and convert the ones left after things go to pot?
Falwell told his Baptist congregation in Lynchburg yesterday that "the jury is still out" on whether humans are causing -- or could stop -- global warming.
Well, that makes it easier to see where he's getting his research from.
But he said some "naive Christian leaders" are being "duped" by arguments like those presented in former Vice President Al Gore's documentary "An Inconvenient Truth. Falwell says the documentary should have been titled "A Convenient Untruth."
Falwell said the Bible teaches that God will maintain the Earth until Jesus returns, so Christians should be responsible environmentalists, but not what he calls ... quote ... "first-class nuts."
With as good a knack as he has for prophecy, it takes a lot of gall to call others nuts.
Well, how can we not just take Jerry Falwell at his word? When has he ever steered us wrong...other than in science...or mortality...right.
So, have the oil companies gone from buying scientist to preachers?
I think someone's private religious nuttery university is going to be enjoying a lot of football games at the domed Exxon Mobile Stadium soon. Crossing fingers.
