Politics, Culture or Theology? Why Evangelicals Back Trump on Global Warmingposted on June 12, 2017
Religion News Service’s David Gibson reports that white evangelicals largely supported the president’s decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement, while leaders of most other faiths denounced it. Gibson writes that a study released in April suggests that evangelicals’ views on climate change are grounded in their literal interpretation of the Bible. “If you believe that God created the world in six actual days, and that it will end in the twinkling of an eye, then you might be more prone to short-term thinking about the environment,” Gibson writes.
