Since the publication of "Laudato Si," a quasi-Greenie document of Pp. Francis, the Vatican has been increasing its emphasis on Ecological Issues. The Pope has bought into the global-warming myth; population-controllers have been lecturing at the Vatican, and now we have "anniversary" events.
Last week, from July 5-6, a large international conference was held at
the Vatican which wanted to make a big deal about the third anniversary
of the publication of the encyclical letter Laudato Si. ...presided over by Cardinal Peter
Kodwo Appiah Turkson, together with Caritas Internationalis and the
Global Catholic Climate Movement. It was attended by politicians,
scientists, economists, and representatives of non-government
organizations, all of whom are obviously convinced or in some way
promoters of ecologism and the battle against climate change....
Oh, great. "Saving souls" has morphed into "Saving the whales."
If only this were as ludicrous as it seems to be, eh? If only this were just some teen-ager "phase" which is silly, and recognized as such.....nope.
...One has the impression that at certain levels, more than a
“plastic-free” Church what is really desired is a “Christ-free” Church,
in which Jesus is seen as an embarrassing hindrance to encountering
people. Speaking from his own point of view – and therefore in a
positive way – one of the officials of the World Wildlife Fund in his
comments at the conference emphasized how in the title of “Laudato Si”
– and thus also in the title of the conference – the choice was made to
speak of “our common home” and not of “Creation,” which is a religious
term: “The choice to not use religious terminology in the title is the
first sign of a great opening to dialogue with all persons of good
will.” Or, in other words: let’s avoid speaking of Creation, which has a
hierarchical order; let’s avoid speaking of a Creator God who is the
source of our responsibility towards Creation – this would be a divisive
theme. Let’s speak instead about biodiversity, about saving animals and
plants, and about banning plastics. This is how we will all understand
Umnnhhh......yah.......us Paleo-Cons have long understood that the "Green" movement was really very, very, Red--as in Communist. At least AlGore has an excuse for his buying into this thing; he has the IQ of a doughnut.
Not the same with Pp. Francis.
