Though few Christians are aware of it, the cry to “save the earth,” “be sustainable” and “live in harmony with nature” is rooted in the ancient pantheistic religions that dominated the Egyptian, Babylonian, Grecian and Roman Empires.

Should he cut locks on gates that shut off access to public lands?
The fact that a county sheriff is considering such actions against the federal government is a good indication that more than a run-of-the-mill dustup over road and trail closures on public lands is erupting in the far southwest corner of the state…
In recent weeks, protesters have marched on the local Forest Service and BLM office located between Cortez and Dolores, calling Forest Service officials ‘government pukes.’”
