"Climate Change" Asshattery

From The Times (of London):
... The [Church of England] Bishop, Gordon Mursell, wrote in a parish letter that people who don't confront global warming are almost "as guilty" as [Austrian child abuser] Josef Fritzl. Who imprisoned his daughter for over twenty years, raped her repeatedly, bore damaged children by her and kept the lot in a cellar with insufficient air and no natural light. His argument is that "future generations will be left in a futureless world" like the Fritzl prisoners, if we don't "face the truth" about manmade global warming...
(emphasis added)

My Comments:
Time for a lesson in rhetoric.

Although this bishop is guilty of using "inappropriate and insensitive" imagery to make his point, because he comes down on the politically "correct" side of this "important moral issue", he cannot be guilty of "being divisive" or engaging in a "culture war mentality".

Now, if he were to make such statements about proponents of legalized abortion-on-demand, on the other hand ...

Just ask the contributor at a prominent social justice blog (but don't dare call him or the blog "liberal") who routinely likens skeptics of global warming to Holocaust deniers (he understands that the term "denier" is loaded, but insists on using it anyway). Meanwhile, when he's not lambasting critics of climate change chicken littlism, you can find him on threads defending Obama's "pro-choice" abortion position from those who truthfully point out that the Senator supports policies that would leave the victim of a botched abortion to die, and that would once again make it legal to kill an unborn child by jamming scissors into his skull and sucking out his brains.

I've been surfing around a lot of Catholic blogs lately and I must admit I like yours very much although some subjects are incomprehensible to me as I do not live in the US.
My compliments: you have a lovely family - I will keep you in my prayers.
Re: the 'climate change' asshattery well ... Mother Teresa of Calcutta has said that "Words which do not give the light of Christ increase the darkness" :-)
