Earth Day “Scripture”

Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi “quoted” from the Bible on Earth Day:

In her April 22 Earth Day news release, Pelosi said, “The Bible tells us in the Old Testament, ‘To minister to the needs of God’s creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us.’ On this Earth Day, and every day, let us pledge to our children, and our children’s children, that they will have clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, and the opportunity to experience the wonders of nature.”

Hm.  Can’t say that I remember that one.  Must be from one of those modern paraphrase translations.  Then again, according to Wikipedia, Pelosi is a Roman Catholic.  Maybe it’s a quote from the Apocrypha.

OK, look, it’s got to be somewhere!  A public servant of her stature wouldn’t just make something up!
