posted by God's Politics

Here’s the word from the physical world: On Sept. 10, scientists studying satellite images of the Arctic reported that sea ice covered 4.32 million square kilometers of the north. The old record, set two years before: 5.34 million square kilometers. […]

posted by gp_intern

Lyndsay Moseley: Jonah’s Warning and Global Warming

posted by gp_intern

posted by gp_intern

James Dobson’s letter attacking Rich Cizik of the National Association of Evangelicals has caused a firestorm, and maybe the beginning of a really good dialogue. Brian McLaren’s post yesterday pointed out that the letter from Dobson and friends actually acknowledged […]

posted by gp_intern

Bill McKibben: The Gospel Versus Global Warming

posted by gp_intern

Why I Work for Immigration Reform (by Patty Kupfer)
