Global warming skeptics have been compared to Nazis so I guess it's not surprising we should hear this kind of crap from the gloabal warming crowd:
Moronic nincompoops like this brain dead lefty bishop will be with us always. The question we've got to ask these rattlebrained liberals is how far they can stretch an analogy to encompass their political enemies?
In all too common fashion for Global Warming alarmists, the Anglican bishop recently employed a pastoral letter to liken dissenters on Global Warming to Josef Fritzl, who fathered seven children by his daughter, who was locked up in the basement across two decades.
"Josef Fritzl represents merely the most extreme form of a very common philosophy of life: I will do what makes me happy, and if that causes others to suffer, hard luck," the Very Rev. Gordon Mursell explained to his Diocese of Lichfield. "In fact you could argue that, by our refusal to face the truth about climate change, we are as guilty as he is - we are in effect locking our children and grandchildren into a world with no future and throwing away the key."
The bishop continued: "We are right to be disgusted at these crimes. But mere disgust is too convenient. There are lessons for all of us to learn." Presumably, for the bishop, the "lessons" are that the world must rally to his brand of Global Warming alarmism, lest we all become moral lepers like the monstrous Austrian father.
Trying to sound hopeful, the bishop helpfully recalled that the Bible is "full of stirring visions of a new cosmos - not just a new church, but a new world," in which "ill-health will be unheard-of, everyone will be properly housed and employed, and even animals will live together in peace." The Rev. Mursell pointed to the historic Christian promise of a troubled creation eventually reclaimed by God. But for the bishop, there is a caveat.
"A fantasy?" he asked about the messianic promise. "That depends on us." Typically for left-wing church prelates, the bishop does not apparently believe the universe's redemption relies on God but instead on human efforts, presumably through left-wing political action. "And anyway, we need good and attractive fantasies which will draw people away from the sick perversions of a Josef Fritzl and the empty slogans of so many politicians."
200 years ago he would have called skeptics "devils" or "demons." I think I would have preferred that to being lumped together with that child abuser.
