Pope Francis is the “unifying” voice in the redistributionist climate change agenda. At a conference in Rome at the Pontifical Academy of Sciences on climate change, the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said he was counting on Francis’ “moral voice, his moral leadership.”
Pope Francis will release his climate change encyclical in June and it’s expected that at least a third of Catholics will immediately buy in, according to one poll.
His letter will be detailed and all-encompassing, covering, land, air, earth, and water making the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts look small-time.
In the summary report of the encyclical, “Climate Change and The Common Good,” the Pope wrote.
“Widening inequalities of wealth and income, the worldwide disruption of the physical climate system and the loss of millions of species that sustain life are the grossest manifestations of unsustainability. The continued extraction of coal, oil and gas following the “business-as-usual mode” will soon create grave existential risks for the poorest three billion, and generations yet unborn. Climate change resulting largely from unsustainable consumption by about 15 percent of the world’s population has become a dominant moral and ethical issue for society.”
The Pope is fully on board with redistribution, the war on fossil fuels, and he plans to make it a matter of morality, something Barack Obama and John Kerry have been trying to do for several years. Kerry quoting Gospel is ridiculous but the Pope doing it is alarming.
It truly is an unholy alliance of Marxists and the Catholic Church. As Christians are being martyred throughout the word and demonized in the United States, the Pope is concerned about man-made climate change, a science only proven via computer-generated prognostications with faulty information.
Pope Francis is very popular, appears to be a very holy man, and, as a leader of 1.2 billion Catholics, he can make much of the world into redistributionists with the stroke of his pen.
In a speech at St. Patrick’s College in Ireland, Ghanaian Cardinal Peter Turkson said, “So when Pope Francis says that destroying the environment is a grave sin; when he says that it is not large families that cause poverty but an economic culture that puts money and profit ahead of people; when he says that we cannot save the environment without also addressing the profound injustices in the distribution of the good of the earth…he is not making some political comment about the relative merits of capitalism and communism. He is rather restating ancient Biblical teaching.”
The Pope will use the threat of sin to make us into redistributionists.
The leftists at The Center for American Progress are thrilled of course.
Joseph Romm, a senior fellow at the center, said, “The pope has significant impact as a moral authority because he gets the debate onto the framing it needs, a moral issue that gets us away from arguing over the science. This is a very big deal,” he said. “The Vatican has put a lot of effort into understanding climate science. It has a group of scientists advising it. How ironic that we live in a time where the Catholic Church as an institution is more knowledgeable and willing to accept evidence than these groups who simply deny climate science.”
It is a very big deal. How ironic that the leftists who hate Catholics and the Vatican suddenly sing their praises.
Pope Francis has said that :we have exploited nature too much” and attributed changes in the global climate “to a large extent” to “man that slaps nature’s face continually.”
There is absolutely no proof of that. That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do all we can to preserve nature within reason, but what the leftists are talking about is totalitarianism, Marxism and the redistribution of U.S. wealth to the world.
Could the Pope, the UN, and Barack Obama all be wrong?
If you wonder whether all the people can be wrong, you only need to remember NAZI Germany.
I’m a Catholic and I’m not following his mandates.
