I have a question for conservative christians, why do so many of you support candidates who are against environmental policies?

God gave you the planet to live on, he wants you to take care of it, not have mining companies build pipelines and drill into it just for oil.

You vote for candidates who do not advocate clean energy, so I'm wondering, why? God would be mad at you for not taking care of the planet.

It's not against the environment; most conservative Christians are more for the other policies and the environment is just collateral damage.

Clearly their focus is on jobs rather than the environment, that's why they advocate projects that hurt the environment but create lots of jobs.

But from the perspective of God I think he would be appalled at this, he would probably be like "you're hurting this beautiful planet I gave you for.. jobs? for what? to buy materialistic items? there's food on the ground, look at all the vegetables and wheat I gave you, look at all the animals I gave you to eat, you're killing mother nature just so you can make money to buy cars and ipods?"

Doesn't make sense to me!

Because they are conservative, they have different values, and each party has a wide spectrum of viewpoints on this issue.

That's exactly my point, conservative values do not align with christian values, hence overwhelming hypocrisy.

Exactly. We've seen this for the past 2 milleniums.

There are more and more religious people who stray from the original values, and less people who continue to practice religion as they should. Religion is not a set of explicitly written rules, they're more like guidelines, with a few broad and general rules. There's plenty of room to make mistakes, and eventually, people blow these mistakes out of proportion, to the point where they become the new face of their religion.

I'm not Conservative, but I am a Christian, and I think it's ridiculous. I support any environmental act I can get my hands on, as well as equal rights. But once again, I'm not Conservative. I really have no idea.
