Please tell me it’s just a bad dream, it isn’t really happening…

Are we gonna wind up “confessing sins” to everything and everyone but God?
As NBC Nooze exhorts us to confess our “climate sins,” Union Theological Seminary is urging its students and faculty to confess their sins to plants (https://www.faithwire.com/2019/09/18/seminary-encourages-students-to-confess-sins-to-plants-msm-outlet-asks-you-to-do-the-same/?fbclid=IwAR2FlcZoGHOhSbkuTZLBMoArtigf98unNs3dXytGAG3_tP8XnELxZZXiLIU).
Why is anyone surprised? Union does ABC Theology–Anything But Christ. Union does “feminist theology” (like God is different for men and women–or whatever the devil it means) and goddess worship. There’s enough horse manure slung out of there every day to fertilize Mars.
They actually held some kind of “service” in which dunderheads did confess their sins to house plants. And one guy wanted to know why they weren’t confessing to whales and glaciers, too.
We are not told what happens after you confess your sins to a potted begonia. Does it forgive you? Does it cleanse you of your sins? Or does it just sort of sit there in the flower pot and do nothing, because when all is said and done it’s only a plant and you’re a heathen nincompoop for treating it like it was a god?
Another thing we’re not told is what, exactly, “sins” are being confessed? “Bless me, O begonia, for I have committed fornication…”? Nah. You know what? I don’t think I really want to know what the pagans at Union Theological Seminary would consider a sin. Not sure I could take it.
I wonder when was the last time anyone at Union read Romans Chapter 1? Maybe they ought to brush up on it, eh?
But they wouldn’t believe it if they read it, would they? All that stuff about not worshiping the created things, but only the Creator–what “teacher” at Union would ever teach that?
