Faith-Based Groups are Inspiring and Diversifying Environmentalism, CSUN Professor Says

As politicians in Washington D.C., rewrite and pull back federal environmental regulations, they may be surprised to discover that some of the loudest objections are coming from interfaith groups that cross racial and ethnic lines, according to Amanda Baugh, an assistant professor of religious studies at California State University, Northridge.

On Monday afternoon, the Rev. Canon Sally Bingham spoke in front of the office of Senator Dianne Feinstein as part of #DayAgainstDenial, a nationwide series of events asking senators to block climate change deniers from serving in the Trump cabinet. Leaders of the ecumenical Christian group Creation Justice Ministries and the Coalition on the Environment in Jewish Life, and even evangelical and Catholic pro-life Christian groups have also banded together to oppose the appointment of Scott Pruitt to head the EPA. These groups appeal to their scriptures and faith traditions as they urge legislators to advance a biblical mandate to be good stewards of God’s Creation.
