Evangelicals fail to speak out on climate change issue

Environment-concerned members of the 30-million-member National Association of Evangelicals had been hoping for the group to issue a statement on the dangers of global warming and the need to address the issue, but the chances of this were torpedoed “after NAE President Ted Haggard received a sternly written letter from 22 Bush-friendly evangelical leaders, including James Dobson.” Also signing this letter were ex-convict Charles W. Colson, D. James Kennedy, Richard Land, Donald Wildmon, Richard Roberts, and Louis P. Sheldon.

The letter stated that “Bible-believing evangelicals … disagree about the cause, severity, and solutions to the global-warming issue.”
