Do you ever get the feeling that climate change is a cult? Does it ever seem like its adherents are immune to reason as they vindictively lash out at anyone who questions their beliefs? Wouldn't it be nice if they just left you alone and let you live your life?
Well, too bad. You live in 2019 and you use modern technology and conveniences. You drive a vehicle, burn a wood stove in the cold winter months. You turn on the air conditioner in hot weather. You eat food that actually tastes good. You procreate and have children. You're guilty and you need to confess. Repent, sinner!
That's right, NBC "News" has put up a page for what they're literally calling Climate Confessions. Here's the tag line:
Even those who care deeply about the planet's future can slip up now and then. Tell us: Where do you fall short in preventing climate change? Do you blast the A/C? Throw out part of your lunch? Grill a steak every week? Share your anonymous confession with NBC News.
Apparently, there are all sorts of ways you can sin against the planet. NBC breaks it down into six categories:
One of our staff submitted a confession: "I work in an air-conditioned office at NBC." They haven't published it yet, but we feel better already.
This NBC News confessional is amazing. Climate change is some kind of religion — all eschatology, minus the redemption. In other words, you're always guilty but you can never be saved.
Even the Adventist Review has chimed in on climate religion, publishing an article two days ago by a 14-year old Australian Adventist version of Saint Greta. Repent. Strike. Play hooky from school. Do self-flagellation for the planet. Stir up the false guilt.
Bless me, Gaia, for I have sinned.
“They exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen” (Romans 1:25).
