High Priest of Climate Science Denial

I understand that Sen James Inhofe of Ok has recently said that global warming is a good thing.  This, in spite of the fact that his home state is in severe drought and had the hottest summer ever recorded.  But this is not surprising.  When choosing between reality and faith, most conservatives will always cling to their religious roots.   Now, some might assume that in Oklahoma, people are mostly Christians, since that is what they will tell you they are.  But Jesus was all about feeding the hungry, healing the sick, sheltering the homeless, etc.---and no okey would be caught dead doing that stuff.  They actually follow a much more primitive kind of religion, a kind similar to the Egyptians' worship of the sun, or Mess-American worship of corn.  They worship the god of petroleum---and if they had any virgins to sacrifice or volcanos to throw them into, they would not stop at human sacrifice.  And James Inhofe is their high priest.
