Progressives at Union Seminary 'Confessed' to Plants During a Pro-Environmental 'Worship Service'


A group of people (environmentalists? activists? progressivists? Honestly, I’m not sure) over at Union Theological Seminary tweeted a photo Tuesday explaining they’d spent the day “confessing to plants" as part of a "worship" service held in honor of the planet.

As in, they talked to a pile of ferns and potted shrubs set up in the middle of the floor. In fact, you really have to see it to believe it, so here goes:


And no, for those of you who are hoping to sweet baby Moses in the bullrushes that this whole thing is a joke meant to criticize the far-left’s weird obsession with the flora, these folks are being entirely serious. The “worship” service (their words, not mine) was part of a class called "Extractivism: A Ritual/Liturgical Response," and actually included a confession to some ficus trees repenting for how terrible, awful, no-good, very bad humans have treated them.

“In worship, our community confessed the harm we've done to plants, speaking directly in repentance. This is a beautiful ritual,” Union said in a tweet.

In fact, Union’s a little pissed anyone thinks their prayers to the petunias are weird and ridiculous in the extreme.

Based in New York City, Union Theological Seminary is a non-denominational institution that espouses a far-left version of “Christian” doctrine, including interfaith teaching, an emphasis on social justice, and a heavy focus on environmentalism.

Thankfully, according to their own website, they only have 266 students.
