Noted climatologist — I’m sorry, that should read megachurch pastor, ignoramus and Christian con artist — Robert Jeffress told Fox News’ Todd Starnes that global warming is an “imaginary crisis” because God promised to never (again) destroy the world with rising flood waters. And Starnes, who believes in talking snakes, compared it to Bigfoot and the tooth fairy.
I tell people all the time, ‘This president is brilliant.’ He decides to skip attending a session on an imaginary crisis—climate change—and instead he chooses to lead his own conference on a very real problem, global persecution.”
Starnes readily agreed, dismissing “this whole global warming, tree-hugging fiasco” as useless because “there is nothing to it. They may as well hold a commission hearing on the Tooth Fairy or Bigfoot.”“God said he created the environment to serve us, not for us to serve the environment,” Jeffress replied. “This Greta Thunberg, the 16 year-old, she was warning today about the mass extinction of humanity. Somebody needs to read poor Greta Genesis chapter 9 and tell her the next time she worries about global warming, just look at a rainbow; that’s God’s promise that the polar ice caps aren’t going to melt and flood the world again.”
Yeah, all you have to do is read the Bible to understand the world. Pay particular attention to the parts about slaughtering entire civilizations at God’s command, whales swallowing people, raising people from the dead and Noah escaping a flood that never happened with every animal on earth in a big boat that would never float. What more do you need to know than that? Everything else is clearly fake news.
