In a recent statement Richard Chartres, the Bishop of London, has said that holiday makers using air transport are sinners.
Whilst I may be simplifying things a little – this statement above is still accurate. Mr Chartres’ comments were part of an address he made about Christians being more environmentally aware, and that it is so important that it should be considered a sin to not respect the environment.
Many people know my views on religion, and the place that I feel it has in our society – but is this one not just a little too obvious? Whilst I do not on any level disagree with somebody trying to make people more environmentally aware – fear of being struck down with great vengeance from a furious God is on the way out. I think more and more people are beginning to make decisions for themselves, and the good of their kind – not because the church is dangling eternity in a pit of fire over everybodys head.
