Who’s For A Green Sabbath?

It’s always cute when the people who tend to denigrate religion…well, mostly Judaism and Christianity, never Islam…try to use it for their nefarious purposes with their doomsday cult

Breakpoint: Remember the Sabbath … to stop global warming?

St. GretaWhy should people exercise, eat better or cut back on caffeine consumption? In the not-so-distant past, the answer was simple and compelling: It would be good for them.

Today, however, according to the United Nations, the National Library of Medicine and the New York Post, one of the main reasons to do these things is to fight climate change. In fact, Google virtually any good habit, along with the words “climate change.” The results are plentiful.

Apparently, at least according to the mainstream press and governmental agencies, the best way to sell behavior, policy or technology is not by touting the obvious, actual benefits, but rather some tenuous, highly theoretical way they could, if looked at in the right light and all the stars align, possibly, help cool the planet.

The problem here is that the cult always wants to push solutions that involve higher taxes/fees along with taking away people’s liberty and life choices, empowering government. Interestingly, almost none of the climate cultists actually do things that are good habits to “fight climate change”. Exercise and eating better are, of course, real.

This is a telltale sign that, whatever the scientific merits of manmade climate change may be, it has become a religious system for many, complete with genuflecting, indulgences and ritual invocations. In fact, climate change was recently offered as a reason to engage in an actual religious practice, one that goes back thousands of years and is beneficial, even essential, to human well-being. In The Washington Post recently, advice columnist Michael Coren argued that one way to fight climate change is to take a weekly day of rest. He called his idea a “green Sabbath.”

“[C]lergy are now arguing that this practice, whether in a secular or religious context, can help redirect the world’s societies away from catastrophic climate change. In their view, it’s as essential to the future as any clean-energy technology or electric vehicle. A shared day of rest, at a minimum, might slow the pace of consumption, curb emissions or ease the burden of so many people working weary weekends.”

Ah, but, here’s the thing: the article meanders along and makes the case that the climate cultists should leave the proscription to “Remember The Sabbath day, to keep it holy”, alone. Stop conscripting everything, stop appropriating everything, especially the Word Of The Lord.

The Sabbath, just like exercise, better eating and less coffee is good for us because of how God made us. The strange need to justify everything with another threat of catastrophe is anything but restful. The original reasons to take a day off are better than an appeal to reducing carbon emissions.

Unfortunately, the Warmists will always find away to merge their doomsday cult beliefs with everything…well, not really Islam, yet, because that’s a good way to have a fatwa thrown your way and a bounty on their heads.

    Alas! Our ordered palm fronds did not arrive in time, but the Gospels do not say that palm fronds were used.

    Most of the crowd spread their coats in the road, and others were cutting branches from the trees and spreading them in the road. — Matthew 21:8

    So, we used branches that a parishioner cut from the bamboo areas near the river.
