And lo, there was sent from Algore and his highest choir of patchouli-soaked angels, the "Green" Bible:
Supporters of the book, which highlights verses related to what believers call "God's creation" and his desire for humans to protect it, say they hope it will encourage more Christians, particularly evangelicals, to embrace environmentalism. "In every book of the Bible, there are references to the world and how we should take care of it," said Rusty Pritchard, editor of Creation Care Magazine, an eco-friendly publication for evangelicals. "When you look at it through that lens, it really jumps out at you . . . that God is calling us to care for the world around us."I believe highlighting some verses while excluding others is what's known as "cherrypicking." But what would environmentalists know about cherrypicking - it's not like they do it with their "science," right? All hail Gaia. Praised be thy name.
