I look to the sky like Aboriginies ancestors and what do I see. I see the most stable people in Australia have no problem with Sudanese people within their midst.

Despite what theologians are saying today, the Hebrew Bible is very clear about how humans should relate to nature and the environment. In the quoted scripture, the word "over" is used a total of five times to describe man's relationship to nature. Thus, there is no mistaking that the scripture clearly situates man above nature rather than having an equal status to nature. This kind of relationship creates an unbalanced, confrontational, and even hostile relationship between the two...
