Greens Begin to Parody Themselves
This is an actual news release:
"I thought you might be interested in a “green” feature in the July issue of O, The Oprah Magazine on newsstands June 15th.
A GREENER CALLING
Four inspiring environmental leaders are joining forces to preach the gospel of green.
The Climate Cleric Rev. Canon Sally Bingham: An Episcopal priest preaches energy conservation to people of all faiths.
The Witness Bishop Walter Thomas: An American pastor takes on water pollution in Africa.
The Animal Activist Dekila Chungyalpa: A Buddhist defends the Earth’s last tigers.
The Compassionate Foodie Nick Savage: A devout Jew feeds his flock—and redefines kosher.
Please let me know if you’d like to see the full piece."
It has been widely noted that environmentalism, i.e. being green, has long since become an alternative religion. Any number of clerics of different faiths have climbed on the green bandwagon.
