What Can Green Do For You?

February 12th, 2010, Promulgated by Dr. K

From Church of the Transfiguration:

Liberalism is truly a mental disorder. “For every bottle of imported water you forgo you’ll be using up one less liter of fossil fuel and emitting 1.2 pounds less greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere” Does the author of this piece not realize the hypocrisy involved in wasting precious trees to publish this garbage in several hundred printed bulletins?

Why not cut down on printing bulletins that are eight pages in length? Their pulpit pronouncement appears to be doing more harm than my sipping on a Poland Spring while reading this drivel.

Disclaimer: No baby seals were killed in the making of this post, but a few adult seals might have been eaten. Mmmm… tasty seals.

    I am by no means a liberal but I'd like to think I care somewhat about the environment. Regardless of how much fossil fuels we burn by sipping poland spring or whatever, the bottom line is that we can agree that drinking a poland spring bottle vs filling up a nalgene bottle from the sink has a different effect on the environment. Maybe the way they went about explaining it was false or hypocritical but I don't see how this message in the bulletin qualifies as "Liturgical abuse" either (which is the the focus of the blog). All this post does is get someone who's from the Transfiguration to dismiss this blog as opinion based drivel because of a less important issue
    of water bottles.

    Sorry Dr. K, again, I appreciate all you guys do for this community, but this post doesn't help the overall goal of this website. It only turns people off.

    We're just a blog — this isn't the Washington Post or something. We talk about anything that sparks our interest. Sure, we generally post on liturgical abuses, but we also post humor, politics, randomness, and about life in general. This post does not qualify as any serious criticism, I'm just poking a little fun at the green police.

    Precisely – we're human beings writing about "things" in the diocese. We aren't hemmed in by any parameters, and we aren't accountable to anyone in terms of content/stories/posts. If you check out the very first posts of the blog, you'll see what we're all about.

    I hear ya, I'm just always worried that you may offend some of the people who were on your side and thus be turned off.

    You may think your "just a blog" but I think you'd be surprised over who is reading this site. If we want to be taken seriously we need to be somewhat serious as well, no? This site really is an authority and a source of hope for some in the area and for others the source of some serious frustration for others.

    I'm probably just overreacting, oversensitive and over protective, but it's only cause I am pretty passionate about what it is you guys are doing for us. Thanks again.

    if we start worrying about whom we offend, we'll lose what makes CF unique. 😉
