Do we really need to attack C.S. Lewis who was just like any typical High Anglican of his day? Who defended the faith in new ways, just because he did it outside the traditional aspect? He didn't deny the trinity, the deity of Christ, etc. If he isn't in heaven, than let it be, but we don't need to destroy his earthly credibility.
I doubt evolution, I also believe that the the creation of Genesis isn't as literal as some say, I think if we where to go deeper into science, the Hebrew words, the meaning, etc. Something special may appear to us.
The owner of a bar in town won the lottery. Still, pesky "kids" where smoking outside the bar, the store owner next doors four year old son through a rock through the window, and I pee'd in the alleyway outside the bar (and got screamed at...Lord forgive me.) and all of that pretty much happened in the same day.

No point in having to dispose of flourescent "energy-saving" but mercury contaminated versions, with ugly lighting characteristics as a bonus. I've had two of these "10-year" bulbs fail in their first year. Hype is still hype. Interesting thing in my neighborhood- We've been good conservationists by separating and recycling cardboard, other paper, plastic, glass, and metal cans, as requested. But watching the recyclers pick up the stuff, and throw it all into the same bin in the truck, makes me wonder who's kidding whom.
That's how it should be done. I believe that you can't/shouldn't force people into being "green" but encourage them to do so.
Hey I like older hymns, especially Amazing Grace on Bagpipes :). I also like Gospel Country (done by Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, etc.). When I'm not listening to music about God, Christ, and such, I will listen to some "rock" music (nothing obscene,etc.). But I don't see where it fits in Church, I can/could understand it when your outside of the church, but in Church classic hymns are so much better.
While Earth "worship" and over doing it is dangerous. Recycling, buying greener materials, etc. Is great. I'm not saying its a sin to throw away a plastic bottle. But we must remember, this planet isn't ours, its Gods.
