Every Christmas and Easter, moonbats righteously screech that some Christian traditions were adopted from pre-Christian pagans. Likewise, the emerging moonbat religion of our dystopian future borrows from Christianity. For example, two Church of England bishops have called on Britons to give up emitting carbon for Lent.
All human activity, including breathing, produces CO2, which makes this crucial component of our atmosphere unholy from the viewpoint of antihuman moonbats — thus the charade of pretending CO2 will destroy the world by making the climate warmer. (In actuality, it's warmer weather that produces more CO2, by making the world a more hospitable place for the life forms that emit it.)
Already the Church of England is a transitional religion: half Christianity, half moonbattery. It is presided over by the leftist screwball Rowan Williams, best known for debunking Christmas, bashing America, sucking up to Muslims and blaming Christianity for domestic abuse.
Here's how James Jones, Bishop of Liverpool, suggests Lent be honored:
[P]eople can take out one of their light bulbs and whenever they go to turn that light on, and it doesn't work, they can remember why they are fasting from carbon — to help the poor of the world. At the end of the fast they can replace it with an energy-saving light bulb.
How unscrewing a light bulb could "help the poor of the world" is not credibly explained. This must be a vestigial remnant of Christianity, which features a commitment to alleviating the plight of the poor. In stark contrast, moonbattery strives to sink the poor every deeper into poverty, less they achieve dignified lifestyles that would result in the emission of more unholy CO2.
On a tip from Byron.

In my church, which some here mock as a goofy cult, we fast on the first Sunday of each month, gather the money that would have been spent on that day's food, and use it to help the poor. Unlike unscrewing lightbulbs, that actually benefits the poor.

The Church Of England is an organ of the state. That's one of the reasons the US founding fathers were so wise when they separated church and state. Anything that attempts to hold moral values will become corrupted by state involvement. We've seen the same thing happen to big charities we are now just leftie propaganda machines running on government (and transnationalist government) money. I think sometimes conservatives underestimate the advantage of their churches being free to say and do exactly as they wish, beyond the dead hand of government.

VanH, I just wanted to say: though you probably meant this article at least partially tongue in cheek, and have said it all before, I do think you just hit on some huge insight about the Religion of CO2. Man's work itself being defined a priori as unholy, due to the CO2, there is nothing we can ever do in this world to attone sufficiently, other than either die or stop producing anything. It's an entire religion with an internally consistent logic that, while it took them a few years to refine, now hangs together perfectly and coherently. You said it brilliantly in just a few words.

Liberalism is all about empty symbolism. It doesnt matter that removing a light bulb for 6 weeks will do absolutely nothing for the poor - what matters to them is that it makes THEM feel good. If the really wanted to help the poor, they would take a pair of bolt cutters, cut the main power to their homes and take the money saved and give it to the poor. And no candles either! They emit CO2. No battery or solar lights either as they use toxic batteries plus they are expensive which means less money for the poor. In fact, they should disassemble their homes, sell the materials and give the money to the poor. Finally, the can use plastic sheeting (used of course from the city dump) to create a Moonbat teepee that they can live out their days in while dining on weeds and bugs washing it all down with some rain water.

I just give up donuts for Lent. The Church of England also has a deacon who I believe encouraged Christians to refer to God as "Allah," saying it's a "Very beautiful name for God." I'm really glad I don't live in England.

To paraphrase C.S.Lewis, it is always Lent and never Easter with the Moonbats.

He should fast his empty head for Lent, and then screw on one that has some working brains in it. When are these jerks going to conclude that the best way to stop emitting CO2 is to end their own miserable lives?
