According to Vivian Song's article in The Toronto Sun,
At a time when church attendance is on the decline, especially among younger generations, the environment has been described as the new religion: a devotion to the safeguarding of the planet's resources which belongs to everyone, regardless of faith. It isn't an organized religion, but it fills a human need for the metaphysical, experts say.Could this be the beginning of a green revolution within Christianity? In any case, this seems to be an example of what could become a shared goal for some Christians and some atheists. I don't know about you, but I'd certainly be open to working with Christians on protecting our shared environment.
