Why I don't Celebrate Earth Day
I guess you have to understand my roots to understand why I would make such a terrible, and very counter-cultural claim. A few years ago, my father & I happened to be talking on the phone on Earth Day, and he mentioned he was letting his water run all day, and had all the lights on- to make up for the environmentalists trying to save the planet. I laughed. He WAS only half joking!
First of all, as a Christian, I have problems with Earth Day's pagan roots and its post modern present ideology. (that article, BTW, is AMAZING!)
Secondly, it has strong connections to Lenin's birthday, socialist liberal agenda, and even Communism.
Third, its founder was a cold-hearted murderer. And yet he is still is an honored hero among many liberal leaders.
I do believe we should be good stewards of this world God has blessed us with! But most environmentalism today is based on fear, money, and a social agenda of control that has NOTHING to do with wanting to help the environment.
Oh, and by the way, most recycling does more harm than good!
