Al Gore is proving that the only sure things in life are death, taxes, and cheesy sequels. An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power picks up where his 2006 film, An Inconvenient Truth, left off. His original climate change “documentary” was chock-full of false predictions, e.g., global warming would melt enough ice to cause a 20-foot rise in sea levels “in the near future.”
This time around, Gore is relying not just on fake science but also fake religion, some of which he shared in an interview published Thursday:
[I]f we choose to use the thin shell of atmosphere surrounding our planet as an open sewer for 110-million tons of global-warming pollution every day, the consequences are attributable to us. And if you are a believer, as I am, I think God intends for us to open our eyes and take responsibility for the moral consequences of our actions.
Gore shared other theological insights during the interview:
The opposition to progress was rooted in an outdated understanding of morality. If somebody had told me, even seven years ago, that in 2017 gay marriage would be legal in all 50 states, and even celebrated by almost two-thirds of the American people, I would have said, “I sure hope so, but I think that’s probably unrealistic.” But it happened.
Gore and his groupies have discarded the Bible’s “outdated understanding of morality,” and now worship what Paul calls “the god of this world.” 2 Corinthians 4:4 (KJV).
The God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob has very different ideas about marriage and world-ending floods. Regarding the former, He teaches that “Male and female created He them; and blessed them.” Genesis 5:2 (KJV). For those uncertain about how this concept applies to marriage, Jesus spells it out:
But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife. Mark 10: 6-7 (KJV)
Jesus leaves no option for a Christian man to cleave to his husband or his transgender partner.
Genesis also provides a vision of the future that doesn’t match up with 20-foot sea level increases:
It shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud; and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh. Genesis 9: 14-15 (NKJV)
Thus, rainbows (1) are God’s promises not destroy the world by flooding and (2) are not His seal of approval upon homosexual “marriages” or anything else related to homosexuality.
It’s a free country (for now). Which means that Gore has a right to preach his fake science and make a fortune while being one of the world’s biggest environmental hypocrites. And he has a right to preach his fake religion, too, as does Nancy Pelosi, who recently proclaimed that Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris Accord on climate change “dishonors” God. But a day will come when Democrats such as Gore and Pelosi will answer for their perversion of Christianity.
Meanwhile, Trump is betting that, in light of his Pittsburg-not-Paris strategy, Democrats’ climate alarmism won’t win any votes they don’t already have. Given the drift towards apostasy by more and more Americans, that might not be a safe bet.
