Global Warming is a scam started by a group of evil bastards who want to control every aspect of the world and your life. Gore is quoting from the Bible telling you to BELIEVE.
Al Gore’s Amen Corner

Hailed as a “Baptist prophet,” Al Gore brought his Gospel of Global Warming to Jimmy Carter’s rally for leftist Baptists at a New Baptist Covenant Celebration in Atlanta last week. Gore toted a green Bible as he warned of Old Testament style famine and flood unless the planet hearkens unto the most apocalyptic of Global Warming scare stories.
“The evidence is there,” Gore implored in ever-rising, apocalyptic tones. “The signal is on the mountain. The trumpet has blown. The scientists are screaming from the rooftops. The ice is melting. The land is parched. The seas are rising. The storms are getting stronger. Why do we not judge what is right?”
No hyperbole there.
Gore likened climate change to “a rising storm” eerily like the rise of Nazism in the 1930’s. In case anybody missed his point, Gore quoted Winston Churchill for good measure: “The era of procrastination, of half-measures, of soothing and baffling expedients, of delays, is coming to its close. In its place we are entering a period of consequences.”
Very stirring! And very appropriate for Carter’s new confab of Baptists, who are rallying around political themes of the Left rather than Christian doctrinal creeds.
Gore was addressing about 2,500 like-minded, left-leaning Baptists at a special Global Warming luncheon. Reportedly, 15,000 attended Carter’s overall event. The former president left the Southern Baptist Convention several years ago, miffed over that denomination’s conservative shift in the 1980’s. Carter, and some other Baptist refugees, prefer the Social Gospel activism of failing, mainline denominations to conservative Christianity.
Employing some of his slide show of melting glaciers and mourning polar bears that fueled his apocalyptic documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth,” Gore added Bible verses to the scenes of environmental disaster so as to “put it in the context of my own faith as a Baptist.” Quoting the prophet Isaiah, the former vice president urged, “Come let us reason together,” he said, “and tell one another the truth, inconvenient though it may be, about the crisis, including the opportunity that we now face.” Shifting to the Book of Deuteronomy, Gore then declared: “The ancient prophet laid the choice before the people,” he said: “Life or death, blessings or curses. Therefore choose life so both thou and thy seed may live.”
