Appropriately inappropriate

It always amuses me that some people scream and point when you bring Jesus into a discussion about things He actually addressed, but then try to 'enlist' Him in various other causes:
Green guru James Lovelock was right. He warned last week that “the green religion is now taking over from the Christian religion.”
Now at the U.N. Earth Summit, even the image of Christ has been made a forcible convert to the eco-faith, as the city of Rio is bathing the iconic statue of Christ the Redeemer (Christo Redentor) in green light.
Looking at the statue, it's almost as if the Savior's a bit ill due to the goings-on at His feet.  Brings a certain scripture to mind:
"I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth."  Revelation 3:15-16
