Re: E-M:/ Environmental Exchange (Debate) - Grand Rapids

Enviro-Mich message from "Alex J. Sagady & Associates" <ajs@sagady.com>

Ha, Ha....  Rev. Sirico, Acton Institute and company are all a
part of the right wing reaction to and fear of recent developments
of religious-environmental organization connections,
coalitions and cooperation...

.....it is amazing that
the right now finds it desireable to send out stuff on EM attempting
to sneak under our radar.....

Here's a snippet of the kind of evening you'll get if you followup
on Bryan Harrison's invitation....

"The material prosperity that flows from free enterprise cannot save our
souls. But neither can government restrictions on economic
production. This much we can say: Free
enterprise leads to a thriving of human community while
state restrictions only impede the
creativity of the human spirit."

"There is no theory of “spirituality,” however in tune with Earth Mother, 
that can morally
  justify preventing people from acting justly to make better lives for 
each other. Gore’s
  spiritually driven desire to rid us of “sprawl” may in fact rid us of the 
means to live out the
  Biblical injunction to have dominion over the earth."

----from Rev. Sirico

Hmmm..... reminds me of the Monty Python song about
"every sperm is valuable"......
