Religion Going Green

Well it's about time. I've always had a hard time with the attitude that many "Christians" take when it comes to environmental issues. Too often the attitude seems to be that all things will be restored after the second coming. "Well, Jesus is gonna be back soon and He'll take care of the mess we've made." I could never make peace with this attitude. Personally, I felt that going green went hand in hand with the doctrine of stewardship. Well now it appears that the Catholic church and the Southern Baptist Convention are starting to recognize this. For once it's nice to see people taking the admonition to multiply and replenish the Earth and applying it to more than just having children. And this Earth is overdue for a lot of "replenishment".
