The answer to the last two questions is an obvious one. If a person comes from a position of faith, that presupposes a belief in creation, which necessitates a creator. Those presuppositions give that person a vested interest in what was created. It has always been a source of disappointment for me that more "people of faith" don't take a stand concerning the care of the environment. If you look at the creator as a painter, then lack of care, and in fact, flagrant disregard, is like tromping all over his painting. People are often surprised when they discover that as a vegan and an environmentalist, I also worship at the feet of Master Jesus. Yet it makes perfect sense. The views espoused by creationists would be perhaps more palatable to others if they took some responsibility for the care of the created world they believe in.

Really? Maybe because we didn't know what to expect, but both my friend and I loved Poison. The songs were catchy and easy to get into, even though we didn't know them from before. Brett was so engaging, and drew the audience in. And either they are good actors or the band members still enjoy playing music with each other. We stayed for one song of Def Leppard and left. Eyeliner vs. good music? I'll take Poison.
