The Damaging Dutiful Christian View

I was listening to some gospel singer on television today who spoke to the audience in the middle of her song.  “Listen,” she said, “It’s been getting hotter here in Atlanta, every year.  We don’t have winters anymore. Something is wrong! “

Here would be a good time for her to talk about global warming a/k/a climate change, and what can be done to slow the process.  But instead, she continued:

“We’ve got to change!!!  We’ve got to change!!!  And without telling the audience what they needed to change, she sang for the next ten minutes.  But even I know she had no intention of addressing the issue of climate change, but was talking about how all people must come to God and take Jesus as their savior.  Of course, her entire audience nodded throughout the song, mechanically agreeing, as they agree with every single thing any preacher says. The duty of these Christians is to believe that God will continue to punish those “made in his image” for their wicked ways. 
So what are these important themes that Christians feel should be changed, besides simply becoming a Christian?  Number one on their list is actually a tie:  1. Give birth to every single fetus, and 2. Only let penises go into vaginas.  Apparently, fixing the two “abominable sins” called abortion and homosexuality will end global warming, tsunamis, droughts, forest fires and tornados.  Less important issues on their list include card playing, movie going, and crossing your legs while dancing, but these will cause hurricanes and earthquakes as well. 

Given our present population at 7 billion and the fact that there are more pressing issues than where someone puts his penis in the privacy of his bedroom, I feel a very strong calling to take Christianity down.  This calling is not coming from God, but from rationality.  We cannot count on religious people to protect our earth.  They are too busy checking vaginas and penises.
