Wacko Church of England Bishop

A senior Church of England bishop has reportedly compared people who ignore climate change to Josef Fritzl, the Austrian who kept his daughter locked in a cellar for 24 years.

— "we are in effect locking our children and grandchildren into a world with no future and throwing away the key,” he wrote in the letter entitled "following our dream," distributed around the Diocese of Lichfield.

This is either delusion or lunacy. Or, because Anglicans like to see themselves as balanced, perhaps we can be charitable and say it is equal parts of both.

Church leaders who reject the life-changing power of the gospel for political commentary are a sad lot.

As for me, I am not ashamed of the gospel [as written and presented in the New Testament], because I know that it is the power of God unto salvation, to everyone who believes.

And that's the way the Ball bounces.

I guess it's okay if they ignore global warming since it is not happening, but 'climate change', well, that's another matter.

Well, what do we do about it? We must do something before it wrecks us entirely.
How do we ignore global warming when it is all hype?
