Or just a incarnation of Atheistic Naturalistic pantheism.

Or is Narcissistic Atheistic Naturalistic pantheism.

Ego is a big part of this group that denies God but worship creation.

Based on what some of them have said about toilet paper, I'd guess not.

Good, they can’t teach their wacky religion in our public schools anymore. We can raise heck if they start preaching their religion in any public meetings since we are not all beleivers.

I think Rush Limbaugh was the first to correctly identify modern “environmentalism” as a form of religion. He should feel vindicated.

No thanks, I prefer more legitimate religions like scientology and Easter Island monolith worship.

Nah, it wasn’t Rush it was Michael Crichton. The guy who wrote Jurrassic Park, State Of Fear etc. Michael Crichton wrote an essay on how he observed that you can never take out religion from human society as observed through human history. It will come in many forms and the modern version is Environmentalism which map Judeo-Christian religion perfectly. Theres the Garden Of Eden and man being energy sinners who has fallen from grace and to reach heaven we need to reach energy sustainablity

I am happy that they at the end acknowledge this fact. For too long, the concept of ‘religion’ has been based on Judeo-Christianity with its good and bad consequences. Many focus only on the bad side. By expanding the concept, the analysis of ‘religious people’ and ‘religion’ should also include the problem created by these new religions.

Brilliant.

I was trying to think of where else green and red went together and all I came up with was Christmas.

“That argument has now been dismissed by Mr Justice Burton, who last year ruled that the environmental documentary An Inconvenient Truth by Al Gore was political and partisan.”

Someone needs to inform AlGore that. He still thinks he won that contest as well.

This judge is a fool. Even more of a fool than the plaintiff. Combining their I.Q.s just might reach room temperature.

It’s NOT a new religion! It’s part of a much bigger, worldwide religion called “Political Correctness”!

That means that laws requiring things like recycling and pollution control violate my religious freedom.

This is EXACTLY what the “shadow masters” who are now making their big play want to do. Create “religions” in which they can play god. That is EXACTLY why Gore has been chanting the mantra as part of the whole process of destroying our economic independence, taking over healthcare to control our lives from cradle to grave, and substituting fraudulent “religion” as a substitute for genuine religious faith in our One Creator. It is both ludicrous and ultimately a failure. But in the meantime, as this report shows, they are adding the force of law and compulsion to it. This is not an aberration. It is part of a calculated, expanding, evil grab for tyranny.
