Video: Conservative Film Says Environmentalism Is "Deadly to the Gospel of Jesus"

If Resisting the Green Dragon is to be believed, you working to prevent climate change is outright blasphemous.


Heads up, environmentalists: You may be headed for hell—at least if the makers of this new documentary are to be believed.

Already being lauded by Glenn Beck, Resisting the Green Dragon attempts to make the case that modern environmentalism stands contrary to Christianity and all Christian humans. In fact, according to the conservative author Janet Parshall, who opens the film, "[Environmentalism] is deadly to human prosperity, deadly to human life, deadly to human freedom, and deadly to the gospel of Jesus Christ." Parshall doesn't go into why environmentalism is so terrible, but what I can glean from the many platitudes following her rant, it seems as if she and her collaborators believe not allowing humans to do with the earth as they wish is somehow an affront to God.

The movie was produced by the ultra-conservative Cornwall Alliance, a Christian climate change think tank. And with appearances by right-wing favorites from the Family Research Council, the American Family Association, and David Barton, a fixture on Beck's TV and radio programs, you can expect to hear "green dragon" used as shorthand for environmentalism frequently on Fox News in 2011. That is, if you can hear anything over the other wailing sinners.


Between Alexa, Siri, and Google, artificial intelligence is quickly changing us and the way we live. We no longer have to get up to turn on the lights or set the thermostat, we can find the fastest route to work with a click, and, most importantly, tag our friends in pictures. But interacting with the world isn't the only thing AI is making easier – now we can use it save the world, too.

One of the stadium's few positive aspects is its connection to public transportation.

Since 1992, the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous has been holding reunion ceremonies between Holocaust survivors and rescuers once a year. But the tradition is coming to an end, as many have died or are too frail to travel. What might be the last reunion of its kind took place when a 92-year-old woman met up with the two surviving family members that she helped hide during the Holocaust, and their descendants.

Sarah Yanai and Yossi Mor introduced Melpomeni Dina (nee Gianopoulou) to their almost 40 family members, all decedents of the Mordechai family, the family of seven that Dina and her two sisters hid during WWII. "There are no words to describe this feeling," Dina told the Jeruselum Post. "It is very emotional for us to be together again."
