The secular religion of global warming has all the elements of a religious faith: original sin (we are polluting the planet), ritual (separate your waste for recycling), redemption (renounce economic growth) and the sale of indulgences (carbon offsets). We are told that we must have faith (all argument must end, as Al Gore likes to say) and must persecute heretics (global warming skeptics are like Holocaust deniers, we are told).
Michael Barone goes on to say that the climate change agenda is all but dead due to the recent revelations of scientists fabricating data to support the dogma. But I disagree. The very fact that climate change is really a religion indicates to me that it will persist despite evidence to the contrary. This is because that religions do indeed persist alongside a biblical view of God. Satan is a master at deceiving people by imitating the truth... "And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light" (2 Corinthians 11:14, NKJ).
