LifeSiteNews.com – The pro-life group CatholicVote.org says it’s time to use Earth Day to celebrate nature’s greatest gift – human life.
With bus ads in Chicago and in San Francisco and Seattle, CatholicVote.org is encouraging Americans to rethink how they celebrate Earth Day, and how to go about building a culture that respects the environment. This April 22nd will mark the 40th anniversary of Earth Day.
“Our goal is to use Earth Day to get Americans to think more deeply about what it means to truly respect the Earth and creation,” said Brian Burch, President of CatholicVote.org Education Fund.
“Prevailing environmental attitudes too often view humans as the enemy of nature. We believe the human person is God’s greatest creation, and the Earth’s greatest resource. Building up a culture of life is the single most important way to build a culture that respects the environment.”
“Respect for the God’s creation has a long history in Catholic teaching, long before it became popular with our secular culture,” said Burch.
