Lucia Maria points out that a group called the Earth Day Network is trying to persuade catholic churches (and I have no doubt protestant churches too) to use easter to preach about Earth Day.
What a bizarre suggestion. One might as well as a surgeon to take a wheelbarrow of cow manure into his operating theatre, or a petrol station to start filling cars with water instead of fuel.
What goes through the minds of the people when they seriously think that they have the right to ask an organisation to put aside it’s most important task, of eternal importance, in order to promote a petty, trivial political campaign – and on the most important day of their year?
“Oh, sorry the annual day celebrating your entire reason for being falls on the day we picked this year – could you just abandon your most holy celebration and read from this script for us?”
They’ve got no idea, have they?
