The green movement is not earth-friendly

24 ‘Do not defile yourselves by any of these things; for by all these the nations which I am casting out before you have become defiled. 25 For the land has become defiled, therefore I have brought its punishment upon it, so the land has spewed out its inhabitants. – Leviticus 18:24-25

Just as we need to understand that feminism opposes femininity and is no friend of women, we also need to understand that the “green” environmentalist movement is not earth-friendly. In Leviticus 18, after commanding Israel not to commit abortion or any of a multitude of sexual sins, God warns Israel that by such sins even the land is defiled. Yet the “green” movement is associated with a staunch pro-abortion stance. As long as this is the case, the green movement is contributing to the defiling of the land it claims to love, and its efforts will lead to God’s punishment of the land and to a state of its vomit and spew, not health.

One Response to The green movement is not earth-friendly

    Daniel,

    Your observation that the “Green movement” is generally friendly to abortion is accurate, but there are prominent men in the movement (I’m thinking of Wendell Berry and Joel Salatin) who are against abortion. Even so, the basic principles of the Green movement as represented by Berry and Salatin are still problematic for Christians.

    Wendell Berry has written repeatedly that he believes there are places on Earth where man should not go at all, and that there are animals man should resolve never to see or know. See link: http://sycamorethree.blogspot.com/2015/11/the-unseeable-animal.html

    As a supporter of the National Parks, I have no problem with wilderness conservation, but that is a different thing from a commitment to never even set foot in certain places. What good is natural beauty if no one sees it? What good are God’s creatures if we never see them? It was all made for us. Roping off parts of Creation and saying “Don’t go there” is disobedience.

    It’s also useful to know that Mr. Berry, for all his fervent advocacy for “nature” and “natural” practices, is in favor of gay mirage. It comes as a surprise to some, but given Berry’s other principles and tendencies, which are clear in his writings, it was totally predictable, even expected, that he would favor gay marriage. It’s all about the hipster zeitgeist, don’t you know? We want our eggs, meat and veggies to be natural and cage-free, and our sexuality perverse and un-natural.

    Joel Salatin, as far as I know, favors neither abortion nor gay marriage, so what to make of him? Well, when the overwhelming majority of the movement you associate with is godless, rebellious and against man exercising dominion over nature, what are the odds that you, as a lonely Christian, won’t have your thinking and worldview come out a little warped? It’s a question you gotta ask.

    In principle, I don’t have a problem with Christians eating Green, going local and buying cage-free. No problem at all. I do it myself sometimes.

    But if you are a Christian leader or would-be leader in the organic/sustainability world, I think you have on obligation to be a good witness, which is another way of saying you need to be disruptive. And the way this pomo world works, nobody who is disruptive is tolerated for long, and I think we all know this intuitively, which is why we do everything we can to not be disruptive. We don’t say a word about man ruling the Earth to our Green friends. We don’t say anything when friends and co-workers talk about overpopulation, “we will run of out resources by —-“, or that man is a parasite on Mother Earth.

    In our current cultural context, however, our neighbors need to hear that God has given man rule of the Earth, that this is good and right, and not a license to rape the environment, that man is to be fruitful and multiply, and that use of the world and the rearing of children is holiness to God. May we all be more faithful in confessing this truth.

    Love,
