Christian Theologian on Earth Day: ‘Climate Change Is the Totalitarian’s Dream Come True’

This is an interesting twist on the normal discourse centered on the cap & tax bill. This article approaches the subject from the religious point of view.

“Climate change is the totalitarian’s dream come true,” Beisner, founder of the CASC, said at a conference on Thursday at the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. “It offers a rationale for government intrusion into every aspect of life for every person on Earth.”

In his speech, Beisner said that Christians should be concerned about global warming policies because they affect a myriad of issues, such as the sanctity of human life, individual liberty, the survival of free enterprise and free markets in the United States, compassion for the poor around the world, and a sovereign America with the kind of limited government envisioned by the Founding Fathers.

Christians are commanded by God to care for the poor, which Beisner said would suffer the most from the kind of environmental controls and alternative energy plans proposed by both the United Nations and the U.S. Congress.
