"Evangelicals feel besieged by the culture at large," Ball said. "They don't know many environmentalists, but they have the idea they are pretty weird -- with strange liberal, pantheist views."Hopefully they'll start talking, because this is another one of those very important common grounds that ought to be recognized. The article doesn't say anything about reluctance of actual liberal environmentalist organizations to work with the Christian Right in this area -- I hope that's because there isn't such reluctance. If there is, then my message to the Left is the same as my message to the Right: get over it.

Here is a very interesting article on a growing movement in the Christian Right toward environmentalism. I find it especially noteworthy how reluctant the pro-environment Christians are to describe themselves as "environmentalists" or to ally themselves with secular environmentalist groups.
