Dr. E. Calvin Beisner of the Cornwall Alliance has called together a veritable dream team of the Christian Right to produce a DVD series called “Resisting the Green Dragon.”
In it, heavies from Women for America, The Family Research Council, Focus on the Family, etc. etc., say things like “within the environmental movement we are seeing that lust for power, that lust for controlling others, for dominating others very much coming to the fore.”
The gist of the tutorial is that environmentalism is a “green dragon;” that “in the face of the green dragon, we need a whole generation of dragon slayers;” and that “[this $50 series will] give you the armor you need to rise up, slay the green dragon, and promote the true gospel of Jesus Christ.” The woman who says this in the promo is the series’ host, Janet Parshall, who once blamed Matthew Shepard’s mother for her son’s death because she didn’t straighten him out.
Ridiculous? Yes. Real? Yes (this ain’t no Onion story). For more on this wickedly strange/hilarious/strange story, check out this Change.org piece: Christian Right Rises Up Against the “Green Dragon”
