Conservative Christian Leaders Call Climate Change a "Distraction"

This is what the conservative movement has become. Is it any wonder they've lost the Congress and have turned to calling presidential candidates f*****s. It is a philosphy almost as rigid and as ignorant as that of the Islamic fundamentalists we are fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan:
Is there a moral imperative to address climate change? Former Vice President Al Gore argued this point in An Inconvenient Truth. Not everyone's convinced, though: a group of American conservative Christian leaders, including James Dobson (pictured), Gary L. Bauer, Tony Perkins and Paul Weyrich, sent a letter to the National Association of Evangelicals on Thursday that chastised the group for its recent focus on the climate crisis. The signers of the letter argued that NAE's vice president for government affairs, the Rev. Richard Cizik, is diverting the faithful from more pressing moral matters, particularly abortion and homosexuality. According to the New York Times, the letter represents a growing rift between established leadership on the Christian right, and "...challengers who are pushing to expand the evangelical movement’s agenda to include issues like climate change and human rights."

And it is no wonder that these people support a neo-fascist president.
