Here at Grist, we like to keep you on your toes. On the one hand, we tell you that the Christian Right is swaying politicians and threatening the environment. On the other, we show that some of the evangelical leadership is urging its members to adopt eco-friendly living habits and exhorting the government to lighten America’s environmental footprint.

For those of you who don’t have anything better to do on a Friday night, you have an opportunity for a different perspective. Dateline NBC will be airing “In God They Trust,” in which Tom Brokaw “explores why so many Americans are turning to this expression of faith, and asks whether or not some Evangelicals are going too far.”

I doubt they will be discussing the environment, but one can pray hope.
