Why, you may ask?
Because even to an environmental extremist, there IS something still more sacred than saving the african elephant dung beetle. That something is the license to pollute our bodies and the environment in the name of sexual license. Contraception trumps even the most ardent environmental causes.
Contracepting the environment: Catholic Online
Dave Georgis, who directs the Colorado Genetic Engineering Action Network, took to the streets of Boulder on several occasions to hold signs demanding that Boulder County regulate genetically modified crops from existence.You see, global warming is a great threat to Gaia and human influence on the earth must be stopped. But since contraception more efficacious towards the higher goal, it automatically trumps radical environmentalism. That goal of course is the primary focus of the Evil One, every life is sacred and therefore must be eliminated, stopped or voided whatever the cost. Essentially, every person has the possibility of responding to grace and glorifying God, every life is a slap in the face of Satan.
When asked about the genetically modified fish and the contaminated drinking water, however, he said: “It just has so much competition out there for stuff to work on.”
He told the Boulder Weekly that nobody needed to consider curtailing use of artificial contraceptives out of concern for the creek.
“You can’t have a zero impact, and this is one of the many, many impacts we have on the environment in everyday life,” Georgis said. “Nobody is to blame for this, and I don’t have a solution.”
So it should be no surprise that this "threat" is met with a shrug.
As nonviolence coordinator for the Rocky Mountain Peace and Justice Center, Betty Ball has taken to the streets with signs in protest of genetically modified crops. She lobbies Boulder’s city and county officials to stop spraying mosquitoes in their effort to fight the deadly West Nile virus – a disease that killed seven Boulder residents and caused permanent disabilities in others during the summer of 2004.
“Right now we’re worried about weed-control chemicals and pesticides,” said Ball, when asked whether her organization would address the hormone problem in Boulder Creek. “The water contamination is a problem, but we don’t have the time and resources to address it right now.”
