By the way, “denier” was a religious term used to describe heretics.
By Brandon Morse • RedState
Bishop of the Church of Climate Change, Bill Nye, has been preaching the fire and brimstone theology of global cooling – I mean global warming – I mean climate change for a while. Not only is he a diehard in the faith, but he’s lashed out against those who don’t quite see it his way.
His latest sermon has him stating that “climate deniers,” maybe should go to jail.
YouTube channel, cfact, sat down with Nye and at some point Marc Morano asked the celebrity in a lab coat if the idea being passed around by climate change activists to throw skeptics in jail isn’t too extreme.
“We’ll see what happens, was it appropriate to jail the guys at Enron?” responded Nye. “Was it appropriate to jail people from the cigarette industry who insisted that this addictive product was not addictive?”
The heretics, such as myself, would argue that we’ve seen far too much evidence that points to Nye’s end times climate gospel being nothing but a false story drummed up to get votes and expand government control through regulatory actions from unelected officials, such as the EPA. I mean, should I also just believe in a flying spaghetti monster?
Even without the evidence that Nye was an unkempt beard, and set of ragged clothes short of being a doomsday corner crazy, jailing people who simply disagree with you only further proves that maybe the strength of your arguments isn’t all that hardy. If everything Nye said was true, then he could easily disprove it, and not worry about the opposition being taken seriously. But he can’t.
Instead, Nye is suggesting we strip freedoms from the citizenry, and punish those who would dare speak out against him, so that his faith can spread. No dissension, or else.
I realize Nye’s time as a children’s show host has garnered him a loyal following amongst the citizenry, but I think it’s time he ditches the childish notions of throwing people into the lion pit because people, even within the scientific community, say he’s wrong.
