I have generally rejected comparisons of global warming activism to religion as unproductive. But I give up. Apparently global warming activists are digging into the Catholic playbook and stealing shamelessly. Not satisfied with token acts of faith (e.g. sorting the recycling), indulgences (carbon offsets), and refusing to tolerate heresy, they have now adopted meat-free days of the week, switching only the day, from Friday to Monday. I can see the Catholic bumper sticker now -- "the Catholic Church: Fighting Global Warming Since the Year 858".
