A new holy war is growing within the conservative evangelical community, with implications for both the global environment and American politics. For years liberal Christians and others have made protection of the environment a moral commitment. Now a number of conservative evangelicals are joining the fight, arguing that man's stewardship of the planet is a biblical imperative and calling for action to stop global warming.
But they are being met head-on by opposition from their traditional evangelical brethren who adamantly support the Bush administration in downplaying the threat of global warming and other environmental perils. The political stakes are high: Three out of every four white evangelical voters chose George W. Bush in 2004. "Is God Green?" explores how a serious split among conservative evangelicals over the environment and global warming could reshape American politics.
Bill Moyers just aired on PBS “Is God Green?” If you missed it on PBS, you can still see here. It is very well done and I highly recommend you check it out.
Bill Moyers and PBS have a great series of videos...and also a blog with a great conversation going.
In a modern world where faith reduced redemption to saving individual souls, communities are now dreaming of a God sized view of redemption...partners in the new creation.
