Why Birds and Bees Should Not Be Baptists

American evangelicalism is presently in crisis as the majority of young people are leaving the church "permanently or for an extended period starting at age 15." Many of these refugees report being turned off by their church's failure to keep up with science. One can only imagine the damage done to young people concerned about the environment by Christians like Senator James Inhofe — and there are many others — who quote the Bible as an argument against being concerned about climate change.

Unfortunately, Evangelicalism may have to stop being Evangelicalism before it can truly start to care for the world God created.
