Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh took Secretary of State John Kerry’s climate change comments to task during his show on Monday.
Limbaugh reportedly advised his religious listeners that “intellectually you cannot believe in manmade global warming” and also believe in God, according to The Raw Story.
“What about God’s creation called a fetus?” Limbaugh asked during his show. “See, in my humble opinion, folks, if you believe in God, then intellectually you cannot believe in manmade global warming.”
Limbaugh also stated, “You must be either agnostic or atheistic to believe that man controls something that he can’t create. The vanity! These people — on the one hand, ‘We’re no different than a mouse or a rat.’ If you listen to the animal rights activists, we are the pollutants of this planet. If it weren’t for humanity — the military environmentalist wackos — the Earth would be pristine and wonderful and beautiful, and nobody would see it. According to them we are not as entitled to life on this planet as other creatures because we destroy it. But how can we destroy it when we’re no different from the lowest life forms?”
CNS News reported that at an event last week, Kerry described "global climate change" as "a challenge to our responsibilities as the guardians – safe guarders of God's creation."
Kerry reportedly made his comments when he was speaking at an event announcing the creation of the State Department's Office of Faith-Based Community Initiatives.
