Resisting the Green Dragon
is the number one tool to equip Christian parents, pastors, and youth leaders
to respond to the various threats of environmentalism—religious, scientific, economic, and political—and help children resist its powerful attraction.
Taylor—professor of religion and nature at the University of Florida, author of Dark Green Religion: Nature Spirituality and the Planetary Future
, and editor of the Encyclopedia of Religion and Nature
—continued in his defense of Resisting the Green Dragon
. He insisted that it is based on “an accurate perception
that there is a religious dimension to much environmentalism” and that its producers “understand, accurately
, that those engaged in nature-based spiritualities … are converting many to an evolutionary worldview and an environmentalist spirituality and ethics.”
As Michael Farris points out in his Resisting the Green Dragon
lecture “From Captain Planet to Avatar
: The Seduction of Our Youth,” the Green Dragon is out to get our kids—and with the help of public school curriculum, Hollywood movies and television shows, the mainstream media, and the Internet, he’s winning the battle for thousands and thousands of them. Farris, founder of the Home School Legal Defense Association and Patrick Henry College, explains:
The facts are that the vast majority of kids that attend church every week when they’re children stop attending church when they become adults. We lose them. And we lose them in the battle for ideas. The greening of the student mind begins with environmentalist fear mongering from the very beginnings of formal education. And in truth, it begins even earlier with movies and television. Avatar was a $3 billion box office success, with all of its Oscar-winning 3-D artistry. The premise? Humans have trashed the Earth, and now they’re invading other planets to rape them as well. As Ruth Gothic (sp?) correctly notes in the New York Times, there’s a gospel at work here, but it’s not the Christian gospel, it’s that Avatar is director James Cameron’s long apologia for pantheism, a faith that equates god with nature and calls humanity into a religious communion with the natural world. That’s the worldview of the Green Dragon.
Many other ministries have recognized what a powerful tool Resisting the Green Dragon
is. Focus on the Family promotes it on its website, through its online store, and by a powerful feature article in the May issue of Citizen Magazine
. Other ministries, like American Family Association, Answers in Genesis, Constitutional Coalition, Coral Ridge Ministries, Family Research Council, Ligonier Ministries, National Movie Night, truthXchange, WallBuilders, Worldview Warriors, and others also promote it.
