World Council Of Churches Won’t Invest In Fossil Fuels Cause “Climate Change”

I really don’t care who yammers on about “climate change”. If it’s a religious body, I’ll call them out from my small perch

(Ecumenical Times) The World Council of Churches says it will not invest in fossil fuels its main governing body has decided as part of its ethical policies, commitment to caring for creation and reversing climate change.

“The WCC wants to be careful in its investments, avoiding what we see as unethical in businesses today.

“And through our investment policy give signals as to practices that we believe are not serving a sustainable future,” WCC general secretary Rev. Olav Fykse Tveit said.

“The use of fossil fuels must be significantly reduced and by not investing in those companies we want to show a direction we need to follow as a human family to address climate changes properly.

Of course, they don’t mind using those same fossil fuels themselves

The decision will have an impact on discussion about energy to an upcoming Interfaith Summit on Climate Change from September 21 to 22 in New York, prior to the United Nations Climate Summit.

The WWC includes churches from all over the world. How will they get to New York City, for the United Nations IPCC sponsored whinefest?

At the end of the day, this is not about religion, but about people within religion, who should probably focus on things like, oh, morals.

    WCC has apparently had a separation of church and brain.
    Clearly they are not a leading authority on climate, and therefore should not impose their unfounded beliefs on the subject- on every person of faith in their churches.

    Don’t forget that the Navy is against climate change as well.

    Maybe someone should tell the pastors that they should not be making their calls as it uses fossil fuels. After all, they are the least productive people on earth.

  4. I distinctly remember, way back in the whole climate change panic, reading that climate change alarmists were anxious to enlist the churches in their crusade — because God gave man dominion over the Earth and thus they(the religious) would be patsies for the idea of caring for the environment and easy to recruit to their cause. I have never been able to find the reference again, but dang, I know I saw it. I thought it pretty offensive at the time. Oh well.
