‘Christian’ Group Lies About Christianity to Urge Sen. Kirk to Sign Onto Obama’s EPA Powergrab

-By Warner Todd Huston

A new radio spot being played on Chicago talk radio by a purportedly “Christian” environmentalist group is using a pack of lies about Christianity and the environment in order to push left-wing Senator Mark Kirk into signing onto the President’s global warming policies.

A faux Christian group calling itself the “Evangelical Environmental Network” launched its radio blitz on November 12 with the sales line “It’s up to us to care for the earth that God left us.” But the ad is quite a pack of lies especially considering that it is coming from a group of so-called Christians.

First of all the ad misleads by presenting soundbytes from “Christian voices” urging Kirk to vote “yes” on Obama’s pro-global warming initiatives. The presentation to the radio audience listening to the ad makes it seem as if these “regular people” were callers to a radio show–as that is the timber of the audio, the sound is mixed in such a way as to leave the impression you are listening to a talk show caller as opposed to hearing someone speaking directly into a microphone like a narrator might.

With the announcer sonorously starting the ad saying “The voices of Christians,” here is what these faux “regular people” say on the ad:


WOMAN #1: I am a person of faith and I’m asking Sen. Kirk to protect the environment.

WOMAN #2: I would like my children and grandchildren to be able to breathe clean air and drink fresh, clean water.

MAN #1: Without all of the smog and pollution.

WOMAN #3: It’s up to us to care for the earth that God left us.

WOMAN #4: To protect what God created, it’s in our hands, and right now Sen. Kirk, it’s in your hands.

So, let’s review what we have thus far… we have a group of so-called Christians lying to its audience by pretending that listeners are hearing “the voices of Christians” when it is plain they are hearing actors reading lines with a sound mix making it appear as if these are people talking over a telephone.

Right off the bat, this ad is a lie and that is before we even get to Christian ideals and policy.

Then the ad gets to its real message, a push for Obama’s outrageous EPA “clean energy” powergrab.

Here is the rest of the ad:

Climate change is real–it endangers the health of our children… worsens poverty throughout the world… and threatens our economy. But the Clean Power Plan of the Environmental Protection Agency will help create a healthier, more prosperous future.

Call Sen. Mark Kirk and tell him as pro-life Christians we believe reducing pollution is one of the greatest moral opportunities of our time.

Tell Sen. Kirk to support the EPA’s Clean Power Plan.

First of all, global warming (i.e. “climate change) is not “real.” It is an assumption based on computer models that many say are deeply flawed. It is theory, not fact.

So, there is yet another lie disgorged by these so-called Christians.

Next, to say it “endangers children” is simple hyperbole–so yet another lie–and claiming it engenders “poverty” is also a lie.

But they are right that climate change endangers our economy. Following their wishes to vote yes on Obama’s EPA powergrab will certainly endanger our economy… not that these faux Christians mean it that way. So, yep, they essentially belched out yet another lie.

Then we get the pap that Obama’s “Clean Power Plan” will “create a healthier, more prosperous future.” This is another lie.

What it will cost America up to $8.4 BILLION to implement Obama’s EPA powergrab and that is just for starters. That isn’t to even mention the fact that Obama’s policy will cause a hike in energy costs in at least 47 of our 50 states.

Worse, studies show that the new rules won’t really benefit the U.S. in the long run, any way. On top of that, they won’t do much at all to ameliorate global warming–like Obama claims it will–because no other country is much bothering to join the president on his economy-killing rules.

Finally comes the faux Christian group’s “Christian” ideal in the ad: “Call Sen. Mark Kirk and tell him as pro-life Christians we believe reducing pollution is one of the greatest moral opportunities of our time.”

Firstly, “pollution” has nothing at all to do with being “pro-life.” Yes, they’ve blurted out another lie.

Secondly, there isn’t a thing in the Bible that says purposefully destroying modernity and a nation’s economy to implement draconian global warming rules is a Christian principle. I am pretty sure the word “pollution” isn’t anywhere in the Bible. Not even the new versions.

About all you can say is that the Bible urges man to be a good steward of the land, but it doesn’t really lay out a full plan on the idea. There is no way to firmly claim that today’s radical environmentalism is a “Christian” ideal. Christianity does feature common sense ideas about being a good steward for our environment, but that is about all.

So, in the end, what we have is a radio ad filled with lies, half truths, and base assumptions from a group that claims to be good, evangelical Christians.

For shame, Evangelical Environmental Network. You couldn’t be worse representatives of Christianity.

But, let’s face it. It isn’t likely that the single most left-wing Republican in the U.S. Senatey would even need your urging to side with Obama. He does it nearly every day.
