News roundup

(Photo by me!)
Hey guys,

Sorry it's been quiet around here lately...I usually get off at least one substantial post per week but that hasn't happened recently just due to life circumstances. I will try to get back on track this weekend and next week. In the meantime, there's been a TON of stuff happening recently all over the news, much of it relating to religion. Here are some links for your pleasure:

More Evangelicals Concluding that God Is Green
- After years of believing that the world is ours to do what we want and that "The Rapture is going to come any day now, so who the heck cares how much we pollute?", some Evangelicals are finally waking up to the notion that yes, our children might be the ones that have to shoulder the consequences of the disastrous violence we've inflicted upon the environment. About time.

Pat Robertson Back Giuliani
- What?! Ultra-conservative Robertson backs a presidential candidate who has had three wives (one of which was his second cousin), who cross-dresses on occasion and is a supporter of gay and abortion rights?

It Will Take Us at least a Generation to Recover from the Bush administration
- From the war to the disastrous tax cuts, this administration will leave a legacy that has an impact in all the wrong places. I fear for my children and their children if our next president doesn't recognize the problems and turn things around.

Obama Supporters Tried to Keep Stephen Colbert Off the Ballot - Because we could all afford to laugh a little less in this horrendous political climate, am I right guys? Seriously though, their actions were understandable but completely unnecessary.

That is plenty of reading for now. If you like this type of thing, maybe I'll try to do one of these a week, plus a post. Let me know, and thanks for reading!
