For years now, the apologetic Christian left has been saying that the newest environmental leadership will come from within Christianity, from right wing evangelists. It’s a mistake to dismiss the role of religion in environmentalism, and think that a bunch of secularists and scientists will lead the way, they’ve advised us. Green evangelists are the future, they said.
So, we’ve been waiting to see these supposed environmentalist evangelists step up, play their part, and actually do something. There hasn’t been any sign of a Campus Crusade for Conservation… until now.
Finally, after years of inaction, evangelists have taken action on the environment. Unfortunately, they’ve done so by attacking environmentalism. An evangelist group calling itself the Cornwall Alliance has created a movie called Resisting The Green Dragon.
The movie accuses environmentalists of taking part in a new, wicked religion that leads to worship of Satan. Attacking environmentalism, says the Cornwall Alliance, is a part of a broader effort to “resist the Devil”.
Environmentalists are all supposed to be part of a plan concocted by a reptilian demon sent by Satan, you see. The satanic plan we’re accused of working for is to spread evil by encouraging people to take care of life on Earth. We ought to be working to bring about the End Times, and the righteous destruction of everything we care about, I suppose, but as an environmentalist, the end of the world doesn’t sound like a very good idea to me.
