I didn't realize what I was up against

When I decided to preach a sermon on Space Exploration as a Divine Mandate, I didn't realize there was already an organized Christian opposition to exploring space! Check it out here at The Holy Observer: Bush's Long-Range Space Initiative May Place Communities Millions of Miles from Earth... and Grace. Here's a quote of note:
"How could 'For God so loved the world' be any clearer?" explains Penny Draught, president of the newly formed Christians Against Extra-Earth Residence (CAEER). "John speaks so plainly when he says 'Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!' (John 1:29)." Scripture reeks of the concept that Jesus only came to save the world—not the Moon or Mars!"
I may have to rethink my sermon for next week on the Divine Mandate for Evangelizing Star Trek Conventions... =\
