Christians Clash Over Whether or Not to Be Green [VIDEO]

Pro-environment Evangelical Seminary Student Jonathan Merrit is rebuked by Family Research Council president Tony Perkins, who says the Environmentalist movement promotes abortion and homosexuality.

He also unwittingly acknowledges that global warming is REAL but they don't want to stop it because it only delays "the Second Coming". Perkins says you should prepare to be Raptured, not "throw away the keys to your SUV and jump on the Al Gore bandwagon."

A little more Republican idiocy from Family Guy thrown in for fun.
