At least it doesn’t star Al Gore. Stand by for the next envireligious movie from the evangreenical movement:

With a new documentary titled “The Great Warming” as their chief campaign tool, a coalition of religious leaders, environmentalists and businesses are spreading copies of the film into churches around the country. Voter guides and themed sermons are also part of the plan …

The movement by faith communities to become more active on environmental issues has been growing over the last several years with many undertaking energy-saving and energy-education projects that they describe as “creation care.”

Ominously, Presbyterians are involved:

The National Council of Churches, with an estimated 45 million members, Presbyterians for Restoring Creation and leaders of the National Association of Evangelicals are helping develop online promotions, newsletters and campaign materials for film screenings …

Environmentalist propaganda from Ned Flanders; thrilling. Presbyterians have lately bought into other crazy notions, as Heather Wilhelm reports:

Presbyterians in America aren’t known for preaching fire and brimstone. “No frenzy, no fanaticism, no skirmishing,” Mark Twain wrote of his mild-mannered denomination in 1866. “You never see any of us Presbyterians getting in a sweat about religion and trying to massacre the neighbors.”

Now, however—five years after 9/11—the publishing arm of the Presbyterian Church has decided to heat up the brimstone a notch, releasing its very own 9/11 conspiracy theory: “Christian Faith and the Truth Behind 9/11: A Call to Reflection and Action.”

Speaking of terrorism and the environment (and raw, pulsing excitement!) Al Gore’s Australian visit continues:

Mr Gore, who has been touring the world with his film, said climate change is more dangerous than terrorism …

How many people have been killed by global warming, Al? And how many have been killed by terrorists?
