Why I Hate Earth Day
“You cannot have God for your Father if you do not have the Church for your mother” Saint Cyprian of Carthage
“For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen” Romans 1:25
Earth is not my mother.
It does not nurture me or sustain me. It did not give me life. It does not love me.
Earth was created by God. “Man’s chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever” Westminster Shorter Catechism Q1. We are caretakers of what God has entrusted to us. Man was commanded to take dominion of this planet.
Earth is not God or part of God. God is transcendent. He is greater than and apart from his creation.
Earth Day is a celebration of Communism
It is no coincidence that April 22nd was chosen as Earth Day. The first Earth Day was celebrated on the 100th anniversary of the birthday of Vladimir Lenin.
Environmentalism is neo-communism. Environmentalism is the antithesis of capitalism. The environmental movement is based on the idea that governments should subjugate capitalism and confiscate private property for the good of the State and the planet.
The irony is that only a prosperous and wealthy country that practices capitalism has the resources necessary to develop “clean” energy and clean-up the water, air, and the environment in general. There is a reason the “third world” is filthy. I’ll take the society with toilet paper, refrigeration, and air conditioning any day.
Earth cannot be destroyed by man.
The volcano that erupted in Iceland this month put more particulate matter in the atmosphere than every fire, internal combustion engine, and war that humanity has done in its history. To think that mankind can destroy this world is egocentric and arrogant. Only a public school graduate would be tempted to believe this load of crap.
Western culture has had a holiday that celebrates the renewal of the creation. We call it Easter. This is when God thru his son Jesus Christ redeemed the creation and began to reverse the curse of sin. Man’s fall separated man from God but also separated man from man, man from himself, and man from the creation. Christ’s death, burial and resurrection was a divine act of redemption that will culminate in reversing the curse and giving us a new heavens and a new earth.
