Like many others, I have long pointed out the religious nature of much of the whackier end of the environmental movement--but I never expected them to start copying Christianity so obviously. From the April 7, 2010 San Francisco Chronicle:
SAN FRANCISCO — Besides approving rules against using plastic grocery bags, mixing recycling with compost, and smoking in sidewalk cafes, San Francisco supervisors have passed a resolution asking residents to observe meatless Mondays.
San Francisco supervisors passed the resolution Tuesday for no-meat Mondays in their latest legislative endorsement of healthy, eco-conscious living.
It cannot stop the city's residents from eating meat. Instead, it is meant to call attention to the relationship between diet and climate change.
