The tent expands—churches sign on to pollution issues

In order to maximize our impact in this environmental movement we need a big tent approach.

Two movements were made toward this end in the last few days, both with churches making public statements.

The Vatican has come out with a list of new sins which include pollution.

The Southern Baptists also released an official stance on global warming.

These are noteworthy shifts in my opinion as they truly illustrate that the environmental movement is taking hold across all people, all geographies, all income levels, all religious beliefs, etc. Yes, of course there are exceptions to this... but more and more they are just that... exceptions and laggards.
