RE: [greenyes] RE: PEER Press Release


One source for the direction this thread has gone is probably the following article on the Grist webzine, which appeared last week:

http://www.grist.org/news/maindish/2004/10/27/scherer-christian/

as well as the recent, widely discussed article on the role of religion in Bush's presidency, which appeared in the New York Times Magazine. Having read both articles, I hesitate to dismiss the concern as blithely as Ken does.

Well then, to bring it back on-topic, can somebody please tell me
where this nonsense came from about Bush's God-given duty being to
exploit the Earth's resources? As somebody who is not a supporter of
Bush (nor of Kerry, by the way. As always, our choices are bad and
worse), I think it is irresponsible to spread such unfounded
ridiculousness. There are plenty of questionable things we can bring up
about Bush and the rest of his family as is the case with most
politicians. We can debate about why we are in Iraq. We can dispair at
the record federal deficit. We can disagree with his environmental
policies. But in doing so let's use some common sense. If you want to
argue that he will exploit natural resources to make money, make your
case. But Bush wants to use up all the Earth's resources before the
Jewish preacher (his name is Jesus, by the way) comes back? You've got
to be kidding me. And if the world IS going to end soon, like in the
next couple years, can somebody let me know? I am working way too hard
and if we only have a couple years left I think I might have enough
saved up for retirement.
