It shouldn’t be surprising that some people will use faith as a tool to achieve political ends. Governments have done it for ages. The Russian Orthodox Church was cooperating tool of the old Soviet empire, the Roman Catholic Church almost divided over the issue of Liberation Theology in Central America. More than any of those radical Islamic militants use the Muslim faith as an excuse for their terroristic activities. So we should not be shocked to see some people using religion as a means to achieve their green agenda.
God created this world and all that is in it. In Genesis 1:28-30 God gave this creation to man and man was to have dominion over it. It is not a stretch to say that men should be good stewards of what God has given. But some are taking this to extremes and even merging pagan beliefs into a supposedly Christian message about the oil spill and other ecological disasters.
Jeff Poor has an article I think you should read. He discusses the Gulf oil spill and religion. It’s an eye opener.
