Ann McElhinney's speech on the Scam of Sustainability is the Featured Video on YAF website.
McElhinney gave the speech to a packed auditorium at St. John's College in Minnesota.
The Catholic college have declared this academic year as a Year of Sustainability. In the speech McElhinney berets the college Abbott John Klassen who tells students he has difficulty with the words "stewardship" and "dominion" he has a problem with Genesis in fact. Instead of the bible the Abbot chooses to quote from a poem "Tragic Error" by Denise Levertov which expresses better than any passage in the bible the Abbot's true feelings about man's relationship with the earth.
The earth is the Lord's, we gabbled,
and the fullness thereof
while we looted and pillaged,claiming indemnity;
while we preened ourselves, sure of our power,
willful or ignorant, through the centuries.
Read all of Abbot John Klassen's essay to the students here.
McElhinney also points out how odd a relationship is the one that has developed between Catholics and Environmentalists. At the center of the Environmental message of sustainability, is the problem, at they see it with population and the need for population control. For Catholics who are pro-life and do not agree with artificial contraception this population control would be impossible to achieve yet they are celebrating sustainability on the campus.
