This mornings quite wonderful sermon (it had to be, Schillebeeckx was quoted, although no caveats on his rampant idealism) on Colossians 1:15-20, mentioned that because of the God being creator that Christians are 'deep ecologists'. A distinction should have been drawn between the stewardship of the creation mandate, and the anti-people propaganda and deprivation of modern environmento-paganism.

It is worth observing that 'nature' has been better treated, typically, in cultures subject to long Christian influence than others, reaching back centuries.

For example the Anglican Book of Common Prayer from 1549 contained the canticle Benedicite, Omnia Opera, which lauds the natural world.

Nothing new here, folks. Just move along.
