I've only read Wilson's article briefly & there might be problems I don't
see but I think that the appeal he makes is reasonable. (Of course I have
serious problems with Wilson's own worldview but that's another matter.) As
he notes, a number of Christian leaders, church bodies & para-church groups
have already taken positions in favor of environmental protection or, in
more theological language, stewardship of creation. He could have mentioned
other churches as well - e.g., ELCA & PCUSA.

But as Wilson notes, the opposition to sound environmental policy from some
on the religious right continues to be a problem - & that's especially the
case since some people with those views are in positions to influence or
make policy in the current administration. I dealt briefly with these
matters in an article written for the online _Journal of Lutheran Ethics_
for the 10th anniversary of the ELCA's social statment "Caring for Creation:
Vision, Hope and Justice." It can be found at .
