colors: adjectives/adverbs

My question is not about the meaning of a word, but about its function.
A pastor in U.S.A. who wants to "convert" his believers to the concern about energy conservation, says:
God loves green.

I had first understood this sentence as: God loves in green, "green" being an adverb, the way God loves; but then, I've realized that it could be understood as: God loves the color green (or the green), "green" being an adjective (or a noun).
I'd like to ask how do you please understand the sentence above.

Thank you very much.
