Republicans are often fiercely against climate change, saying things like the science is faulty. Of course, when they are pressed on why the science is faulty, they are usually short on ideas.
The GOP is against climate science because their corporate backers want to be able to pollute the planet. So they have to come out with reasons to ignore the clear damage that is happening to the planet. Fox News' Rachel Campos-Duffy came up with a doozy over the weekend.
The Fox host began by saying that the split between Republicans and Democrats comes down to faith. She said, "It changes the way you look even at politics. And sometimes, you know, we look at how hard on the left they play. They really play for keeps. They play in a way that's very, you know, a lot of times conservatives look at it and go, why don't we play as hard as them."
"Well, for them, where we live right now, this place, Earth is it. So everything's on the line here for them. They think, as you said, they can perfect this Earth. Those of us who have faith don't believe that. And we believe how we act here determines where we go after. And so we had to behave."
The Fox host closed, "And so even in politics, we don't, you know, we act within those moral limits. And you know, the ends justify the means is sort of the rules for radicals. That's not how Christians act."
