MOTHER EARTH MUST HATE DIVORCE -- and candles

It's not that there aren't already enough reasons to stay married, but now the earth worshippers give us a reason. Divorce is harmful to the earth according to the Michigan State University because it causes pollution (two homes, transportation of children, etc). This message just might resonate and save marriages. Christians have always known the devastating effects and evil of divorce, but now it is at least partially recognized by the worshippers of Mother Earth. Earth worshippers can stay together to keep down their so-called "carbon footprint", a newly discovered "sin" in that religion. And Christians stay together because Jehovah, who ordained marriage and said "What God has joined together, let no man separate", desires that the home be a place that honors Him. God does not like divorce. As it is written:
"For I hate divorce," says the LORD, the God of Israel, "and him who covers his garment with wrong," says the LORD of hosts. "So take heed to your spirit, that you do not deal treacherously." - Mal. 2:16
Whether the "green" crowd acknowledges the real motive, in the end marriages are saved. Then again maybe not, since Mother Earth doesn't seem to care if people marry or just shack up. I don't think Mother Earth has commented on shacking up. But God has. It falls under the warning of fornication and adultery (Heb. 13:4).

Nevertheless, Mother Earth is getting a lot of recognition these days. And those who bow at her altar should should save their marriages, have smaller homes, drive less, and burn fewer candles. Yes, fewer candles. During the same news cycle, because the 12 days of Jewish Hanukkah are beginning, the earth worshippers are asking that the 1 million observers burn one fewer candle on the menorah.

Brian Williams of NBC Nightly News just nominated Mother Earth as the Time "Person of the Year".

  1. I believe this will be a test of faith for the Greens. A separation of the wheat from the chaff, you might say. Those who are mere talk will get their divorces, double their possessions and shuttle their kids in a huge SUV. The true believers will fix their marriages. It will be interesting to watch the divorce statistics in coming years to see how man real Greens are out there!

  2. After I read the Romney speech, I altered my text slightly. My criticism is not in any way saying that I would only vote for someone who believes the same as I do in the Bible. My favorite President in recent history was Reagan. I loved him and respected him immensely. My beef with these politicians is when they cross that line of telling me what the Bible means. I am leary of politicians who tell me that Jesus wants taxes to be increased so that we can help the poor.

  3. Maybe Mother Earf just hates marriages and shacking up. I know that there is a prominent Green type, Mother Earf worshipper out there who advocates that all families should have at least one less child. This is because children are supposedly among the greatest factors in expanding the 'carbon footprint'. I guess the is a consequence of removing God from reasoning and acknowleding nothing more than the earth as deity.
    Why is it that humans are dangerous to the environment, but herds of cows and other grass eating animals which produce far more carbon dioxide and methane(!)than all the human causes combined get a pass? I honestly ask, would these people be happy if we killed most of these animals and most of the humans on the planet?

    Dear 100 Yds and Discipler,
    Good question. A retarded person is one who is relatively happy as they live in a fantasy world. Their oblivious state of mind is able to go merrily along without any idea of what it takes to hold a society together. So that's why I think they are retarded. Maybe it is not kind to call names, in which case I will just call them morons. I probably shouldn't have said that either. They are dufuses.
