A Sacred Mission
Poverty and pollution are not acts of god; they are acts of man. God provided enough water, air and food for everyone to prosper; only by theft are billions deprived.
The fact the United States has a military presence in 90% of the countries on earth is not an accident; theft requires force. Theft also induces resentment and revenge, thus perpetuating the use of force against the many for the prosperity of a few.
Opposing poverty and pollution may be inspired by god, but it is an act of man; as an act of gratitude, it is thus a sacred mission.
