Evangelical Environmentalists, eh ?

There's been a lot of brouhaha lately about how the Christian Evangelical movement is broadening it's focus to issues like social justice, the poor, and the environment.

I've always thought this was just a bunch of window-dressing (or as we in the South like to say, "puttin' lipstick on a pig"). And now a recent article in the Washington Post reminds us that the concept of Christian Evangelical = extremist social conservative is alive and well:
Focus on the Family founder James C. Dobson and other conservative Christian leaders are calling for the National Association of Evangelicals to silence or fire an official who has urged evangelicals to take global warming seriously.
