The New Religion

Environmentalism is the new religion. What do you think?

It is always easy to describe something that inspires enthusiasm and devotion as a religion. You could just as easily say that capitalism/socialism/anti-slavery/rationalism/scientism/modernity/reformed christianity/wesleyanism/animal rights/human rights/internationalism/imperialism/republicanism/neo-conservatism/the 'culture war'/'emerging church' or anything else is the new religion.

It doesn't mean that any of these things are necessarily wrong in themselves, but it does mean we should hear both the cry of our world and the voice of God that may be contained in anything.

It is too easy to say that environmentalism is the new religion (so christians need to steer clear and keep on raping God's earth??).
