    Thank you for sharing this, Andy. A thoughtful reflection on many topics. May all Wisconsin weddings burn a little something, meaningfully.

    I just had wonderful conversation with Bron Taylor, who I mentioned at the end of this essay, which he was kind enough to read. He made a subtle but important clarification about his argument: “a minor quibble: In Dark Green Religion I do analyze the overtly religious but also the religion-resembling dimensions of environment-related social phenomena, and whether one ultimately wants to label all such stuff ‘religious’ does not matter to me — but it is illuminating to view such phenomena with religious studies lenses.”
