A large part of that is the West's Christian heritage. Christians are currently busily undermining the credibility and authority of scientists including climate scientists. And they have long taught that the earth is just a passing phase slated for demolition. Here's what a Christian Secretary of the Interior entrusted to protect America's natural resources said:“We don't have to protect the environment, the Second Coming is at hand”- James Watt, Secretary of the Interior under Reagan It is the humanists that are pro-environment, and who have to struggle against conservative Christians. We expect to be here for a long time. That's why we need to be the gods of nature, or its stewards at the least. We have to take responsibility for our world. Who else is going to do it? Yahweh?

Not a shred, huh? The news is teeming with evidence of Christian antiscientism. We recently had Ken Ham and Bill Nye debating over whether the bible or science was more credible.
Then there was "Big Bang, evolution, climate change widely doubted in U.S., poll suggests - Poll finds confidence in major science concepts strongly dependent on politics, religion"
http://www.cbc.ca/news/technology/big-bang-ev...

We recently reviewed the declaration of war by the the Discovery Institute's Center For The Renewal of Science and Culture as outlined in its wedge strategy, which states its purpose as, "To defeat scientific materialism and its destructive moral, cultural, and political legacies" and "To replace materialistic explanations with the theistic understanding that nature and human beings are created by God."

You've seen this evidence and hundreds of other examples like it, but what do you care? You're a faith based thinker and pro-church, so to you, there's not a shred of evidence.

One of the original researchers to expose the ties between U.S. right-wing evangelicals and anti-LGBTQ laws in Uganda and other parts of Africa has released a new book that shows U.S. activists how to stop Americans like Scott Lively and Rick Warren from exporting anti-gay animus abroad.

“American Culture Warriors in Africa: A Guide to the Exporters of Homophobia and Sexism is penned by Rev. Dr. Kapya Kaoma and Political Research Associates, the outfit that filmed the explosive undercover footage of Lively in Uganda telling lawmakers and faith leaders that gays from the West were “infiltrating” Ugandan schools to “recruit” and “molest” children.

Lively authored a book claiming that Hitler and the Nazis were really a secret gay club.

“This is incredibly dangerous,” says Kaoma.“These Americans are presenting themselves as figures of authority and teaching that being gay is the same as being a pedophile, and that gays from the West are coming to rape and recruit African children into homosexuality.”

Kaoma’s research led to an international outcry against the Anti-Homosexuality “Kill the Gays” Bill proposed in Uganda after encouragement by the U.S. conservatives. That bill was passed into law this year, and includes penalties up to life-in-prison for LGBTQ people, driving LGBTQ Ugandans even further underground.

(RNS) Two pastors have left a Reformed evangelical group after a pastor from the Maryland megachurch they oversaw confessed to covering up sex abuse claims, the latest chapter in a public struggle over evangelicals coming to terms with abuse within their ranks.
Pastors Joshua Harris and C.J. Mahaney left the leadership council of The Gospel Coalition, a central hub for the Reformed evangelical movement, after a trial involving child abuse at Covenant Life Church in Gaithersburg, Md., which both men have overseen.
A criminal trial that concluded last week raised questions about what pastors at Covenant Life knew about the abuse and why steps weren’t taken to stop it.
Nathaniel Morales, 56, was convicted Thursday (May 15) of sexually abusing three underage boys between 1983 and 1991 when he was a youth leader at Covenant Life.
During testimony, former Covenant Life pastor Grant Layman suggested that he withheld information from the police about the abuse allegations against Morales.
“Did you have an obligation to report the alleged abuse?” public defender Alan Drew, who represented Morales, asked during cross-examination.“I believe so,” Layman said.“And you didn’t,” Drew responded.“No,” Layman said.
Layman, who is Mahaney’s brother-in-law, stepped down from his role at Covenant Life in March.
Mahaney and Harris are among a coterie of evangelical leaders who are trying to push the movement toward an embrace of Reformed theology, which has traditionally been the domain of Presbyterians and other followers of John Calvin, the 16th-century French theologian.
Reformed theology differs from some evangelical teaching in key aspects, particularly on the question of salvation, and it has roiled life within the Southern Baptist Convention, where 30 percent of pastors now consider themselves Calvinists, or Reformed.
The allegations of abuse cover-up that have dogged Mahaney’s leadership — he was never personally accused of abuse — in recent years have also cast unwanted attention on the Reformed network he helped start and have sent leading Reformed pastors rushing to his defense.
Mahaney founded Covenant Life in 1977 and now leads Sovereign Grace Church of Louisville, Ky., which is also the home of Sovereign Grace Ministries, a national association of 80 Reformed evangelical churches.
Mahaney could not be reached for comment, but Harris tweeted Monday that he needed to focus on repairing the Maryland megachurch, which he inherited from Mahaney in 2004:“I resigned the @TGC Council because I don’t want the present challenges at my church to distract from this terrific ministry. Godspeed, TGC!” Mahaney and Harris are no longer listed on The Gospel Coalition website, which boasts of leaders such as Al Mohler, president of Louisville’s Southern Baptist Theological Seminary; Tim Keller, pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City; and Mark Dever, pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, D.C.
An employee at The Gospel Coalition said no further comment was expected.
Harris said in a tearful sermon on Sunday (May 18) that he has asked the church’s board to consider placing him on administrative leave while the church continues to investigate the issue.“We have a zero tolerance policy of abuse of any kind,” Harris said, urging people to go to the police if they know of any abuse.
Harris said that because of a separate civil lawsuit, church leaders are unable to speak openly about what pastors knew what when.“Right now, we’re still getting conflicting information,” Harris said.
In a statement released last year, Covenant Life leaders said they didn’t know about the abuse until “many years later.”

Your choice to slur of Rosa rather than rebutting her was typical for Topix Christians.
It's your culture. Your bible deals with its critics the same way - character assassination. Your precious and sacred scriptures depict unbelievers as lying, corrupt, vile, abominable, godless vessels in the service of evil, not one of which does any good, and fit to be burned alive forever as the moral equivalent of murderers and whoremongers. Psalm 14:1, Revelation 21:8, 2 Corinthians 6:14, and 1 John 2:22
And Christian preachers have been judgmentally wagging their fingers in imitation of that role model ever since.
Very true. And thanks for saying that.
