Alien Al Gore?

I was forwarded this email from my father (I’ve included links for reference purposes):

Here’s some Aviation History everyone should probably know:

You may remember that on July 8, 1947, witnesses claim an unidentified object with five aliens aboard crashed on a sheep-cattle ranch just outside Roswell, New Mexico.

This is a well known incident that many say has been profusely covered up by the Air Force and the US government.

However… what you may NOT well know is that on March 31, 1948, nine months after that historic day, Al Gore was born.

Oh, and lest we all forget, Gore believes that our air and water are at stake.. Perhaps his alien spaceship has special tools that have appraised him of this ever-important morsel of information?

    What is your point? Are you suggesting that we (as an industrialized and technological, global society) do not have the means to identify and measure what is happening on a global scale in the environment around us?

    Do you not believe that our air and water are at stake? Or do you think that our streams and rivers and lakes and oceans have been plagued with toxic chemicals since before Christ, and its nothing important? Or do you simply believe, like so many good Christians, that God created the earth for us to “use” (and thus destroy) it?

    When I first started reading your blog, I thought… “Hmmm, Interesting topics for thought and discussion…” Now you’re making me question that notion.

    This post was meant to be humorous, but apparently I did not achieve my intended goal.

    By inserting the video and making reference to our air and water, I was trying to imply that there are more important things to be concerned with. Recently Senator Hatch claimed that the Flag Protection Amendment was the most important thing that could be discussed on the floor of the Senate. Uhh, what?

    I am a fan of the principle of prioritization. While I am aware of the dangers and effects of pollution and the buzzword(s) “global warming”, I am also aware that some of these issues are used and propogated merely for political benefit. By prioritizing, we should realize that there are more important and pressing matters to be discussing and fixing in our society. That doesn’t mean that we can’t do our part to pollute less, conserve more, and recycle and such… I just feel that our energies and focus should be on bigger issues with more pressing things at stake.

    Like getting rid of fags and iraqis.

    But instead, your propogating the inverse in the same name. You are reposting years-old campaign propoganda in an effort to defame an individual whose political (and more importantly, environmental) interests may be different from your own.

    If anything, I would encourage you to find a timely, relevant, legitimate example of your issue (such as Hatch’s “Flag Protection Amendment”, to your credit) and bring that our attention.

    … Like living Christ’s example, and loving everyone, even your enemies.
