new allies in a pleasantly unexpected source...

Wacthing the current adminstration's treatment of environmental issues it is eay to believe that christianity is falling back on it's "God put it here for man so we should consume it" mantra. There are absolutely members of that religion that are, but I am conforted by the numbers of evangelical christians involved in the Creation Care movement, a rather logical, in my opinion, system of belief that argues Man is the Steward of what God has created and therefore we should care for it. Their Evangelical declaration on the care of creation reassures me greatly, for while it is filled with evangelicalism, it is also filled with environmentalism, and the movement can use as many allies as it can get.
