On NPR: An Evangelical Crusade To Go Green With God

NPR’s Weekend Edition for June 27, 2010 ran a story about the Southern Baptist Convention passing a resolution on the BP BlowuP.  Especially noteworthy is this comment from Dr. Russell Moore, the dean of the School of Theology at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary: “Simply trusting corporations to go about their business without polluting the water streams and without destroying ecosystems is really a naïve and utopian view of human nature. It’s not a Christian view of human nature.”

Among other things, the resolution calls on the government “”to act determinatively and with undeterred resolve to end this crisis … to ensure full corporate accountability for damages, clean-up and restoration … and to ensure that government and private industry are not again caught without planning for such possibilities.”
