The World Council of Christians, a global coalition of 345 churches representing half a billion religious members, has announced that it will pull all of its investments in fossil fuels, including oil, gas, and coal. According to them “The committee discussed the ethical investment criteria, and considered that the list of sectors in which the WCC does not invest should be extended to include fossil fuels.”
So now that fossil fuels have become a religious issue, will Republicans suddenly decide to stop subsidizing them with our taxes, and maybe even advocate a carbon tax? If so, maybe hell will freeze over which will definitely help combat global warming.
If hell freezes over, just think of all the things that have been waiting to happen until such an event occurs that will suddenly happen. Dang!!
No, because most of the far right “Christians” belong to non-denominational groups or individual churches that liken the World Council of Church—and the National Council of Churches—to the harbingers of the anti-Christ. I fear this will merely redouble the intensity of the cries for support of the fossil fuel industry.
