Inspire People Of Faith To Support Cleaner Energy

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Where would Jesus drill?
Religious leaders who consider environmental protection a godly
mission are making the Gulf of Mexico oil spill a rallying cry.
They hope it inspires people of faith to support cleaner energy
while changing their personal lives to consume less and contemplate
more.
Walt Grazer, head of the National Religious Partnerships for the
Environment, says it's a rare moment to focus people's attention on
God's creation.
But the message can face some resistance in the Gulf region,
which relies heavily on the oil industry for jobs.
