Where is thy flock, preacher ma'am?

Hufpo Religion encyclical 03.26.2015AD reads "Head Of The Episcopal Church Says It's 'Sinful' To Ignore Climate Change"

Empty Chairs
Unfortunately for Bishop Katherine Jefferts Schori America is full of sinners - or maybe that's a good thing - honestly it's hard to tell how preachers feel about it:

  1. no sin and they're out of business
  2. too much sin means no ones listening to them anymore
  3. Apocalypse

I think, as far as the Episcopal Church is concerned, we're deep in stage 2 and slouching toward 3.


Maybe Gallup is an instrument of the devil but they claim that only 1 in 4 Americans worry about Global Warming, um, Climate Change and that half of us don't even think about it - A sin, and we couldn't care less. Maybe the Episcopalians are solidly in the Climate Change worry camp, but wait a second, I'm an Episcopalian and... Oh shit.

Jesusland goes to church while "the machine" keeps its distance

Could the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints be squeezing out the old guard? Regardless, I'll continue to congregate with the frozen chosen and inform them that they'll soon melt in a sea of fire and that it's my fault. The Religious Right will back me up 100%.



But what of the Liturgical Left? Who will fight for them as they die out or leave the church for a government job and free healthcare? Not to worry, Jesus has their back - at least in theory:
"We are meant to love God and what God has created and to love our neighbors as ourselves," Jefferts Schori said Tuesday. "Jesus insists that those who will enjoy abundant life are those who care for all neighbors, especially the 'least of these' -- the hungry and thirsty, the imprisoned and sick -- and that must include all the species that God has nurtured on this planet."
Even a species like the Episcopalian.

Thanks be to God!
