    Yes MM, if we want to destroy our planet in terms of reducing it's habitability, I believe God will let us do it. We certainly have the power to do so.

    And just how do you know our actions are not the angels of death and sickness in Revelation?
    Well if we are the angels of death just remember WHO sent them. And also remember that God will destroy this planet. This is not our home Jim...

And that is why they think AGW is hype. There are others that have been convinced by WattsUP and sites like it (or even less fact based) that AGW is some sort of global science conspiracy - not unlike those that think evolution is some sort of giant science conspiracy.

    And there is this really huge contingent, making up a large part of the current GOP, that have this huge distrust of science in general because of these two science conspiracy myths that are often supported by our Christian leaders and lay teachers in our Churches. So much so it is now driving National policy making on the issue because of the large number of Christian leaders in our government that hail from backgrounds influenced by those same Christian leaders and lay teachers who have embraced those same science conspiracy myths.
    You're actually stating that the phrase "don't worry, God will just take care of it, Jesus will return before things get too bad" is COMMON among Christians?

    You certainly didn't hear it from me.

    By comparison, fewer white mainline Protestants (41%) view climate change as primarily due to human activity. White evangelical Protestants are least likely to hold this view; 28% among this group say the Earth is warming primarily due to human activity, 33% say the Earth’s warming is mostly due to natural patterns, and 37% say there is no solid evidence that climate change is occurring.

    What is it about you, Charles, that tends to make you want to get in between everybody else and their disagreements? Tassman OFTEN uses quotes of one person to represent whole swaths of society - and he uses lots of adjectives and adverbs to build that person up to make it sound like he's "THE AUTHORITY" on a topic - like he did with Criswell.

    It's what his name MEANS! When you look up "Tassman" in the dictionary, it says "one who singles out a single person's quote to unjustly represent broad swaths of society"*.

    Here is a single person who also happens to be a Republican congressman. Tim Walberg has said:
    Yeah, a SINGLE PERSON.

    Much better.
    Been much better all along!


    *ok, I may have just totally made that up

    This statement combined with no examples to support it is rather funny.

    Yep. Never claimed it was more than that.

    Criswell was the example. Sorry you were laughing so hard you missed it.

    But we are its caretakers. And thus we have a responsibility before God, as with all things, to carry out that responsibility as unto the Lord Himself, and without sin.
