Environmentalism has been elevated to the status of a religion. Indeed, it has much in common with religions. Environmentalism has tenets that its followers accept as faith, from which they refuse to be shaken despite contradicting evidence. They have religious ceremonies such as Earth Day and sacred rites like seperating brown glass from green glass for the holy municipal recycling man. They have their own pantheon of devils and demons, which are spawned from the institutions of capitalism and private property. This religion also has dangerous fundamentalists that engage in terroristic activities such as the Enviroment Liberation Front.
But even more frightening is the fact that environmentalism has become the official state religion while the ACLU turns a blind eye to the enviromentalists issuing holy law through its acolytes in the Environmental Protection Agency.
