Other authors have written about the development of environmental religion in the secular community, but few have drawn attention to the church's role in environmental hysteria. Accuracy in Media researcher, Cliff Kincaid, explains how and why church leaders and organizations have become involved. Ironically, the church is contributing to the re-emergence of paganism. One might argue they are unwittingly doing the Devil's work.
In Kincaid's article, he cites from The Green Dragon:
Dr. James Wanliss, Associate Professor of Physics at Presbyterian College, has written The Green Dragon, a book about how environmentalism is actually committed to "the reconstruction of a pagan world order" and "rejection of Christian spirituality." Wanliss argues that the environmental movement "is a religion with a vision of sin and repentance, heaven and hell. It even has a special vocabulary, with words like 'sustainability' and 'carbon neutral.' Its communion is organic food. Its sacraments are sex, abortion, and when all else fails, sterilization. Its saints are Al Gore and the InterGovernmental Panel on Climate Change."
"Both professing Protestants and Roman Catholics bear a burden of guilt for the current political mess we are in with the global warming and other hysterias," he argues. "If the church had not turned from the gospel of Jesus Christ it is unlikely the Green Dragon would have been able to so deeply sink its fangs into our lives."
