It’s a Sin to Fly or Drive a Gas-Guzzler

One of Britain’s most senior clergy, the Bishop of London has declared that it is a “sin” to fly on holiday, to drive a “gas-guzzling” car or fail to use energy-saving light-bulbs.The Bishop, Richard Chartres, told the Sunday Times that “making selfish choices such as flying on holiday or buying a large car are a symptom of sin. Sin is not just a restricted list of moral mistakes. It is living a life turned in on itself where people ignore the consequences of their actions.”

Chartres, who chairs the bishops’ panel on the environment, said: “There is now an overriding imperative to walk more lightly upon the earth and we need to make our lifestyle decisions in that light”.

    Ever heard that song with the line “Satan is my motor” by Cake? It’s on their album Prolong the Magic, which is quite good. The message of the song in the same as the post this is a reply to, give or take an americanism or two.
