The Church of God the Ecologist

by | Apr 17, 2007

Late respects to the late Kurt Vonnegut (1922 – 2007) R.I.P.

1,780,000 have already said ‘So It Goes’. So, we’re not going to.

11,100 have cited ‘The Church of God the Utterly Indifferent’. Um.

Ah, hardly anybody mentions ‘The Church of God the Ecologist’. Perfect. If only Vonnegut had written that.

It’s also a shame he’s not around to read this. It isn’t entirely unconnected.

In line with all the mainstream political parties and some of the supposedly more radical ones, Christian groups are also seeing the light in an ever deeper shade of green. Indeed religions around the world are turning to Gaia for guidance, according to Andy Crouch. It’s just those pesky ‘evangelical Protestants’ left to convert, apparently.

Your atheist, humanist hosts at Climate Resistance hope they resist. Opposition to the necessity of urgent action against climate change is possibly the only thing we have in common with your average evangelical Protestant (and probably for different reasons). Kurt Vonnegut wouldn’t have agreed with us on that one. He wrote some cracking books, though.
