The real low-down on Pope Francis’ Encyclical on Climate Change

CanadaFreePress:

Extremely curious at the media allegation that the “scientific Pantheist who advises Pope Francis” and has swayed “Laudato Si” (named so after St. Francis of Assisi’s canticle), “seems to believe in Gaia, but not in God,” I set out to read for myself the climate change encyclical in Italian.

Pope Francis, began his 192-page Lettera Enciclica, Laudato Si’ del Santo Padre Francesco Sulla Cura Della Casa Comune,” by quoting a St. Francis d’Assisi canticle, and by saying that we are abusing and irresponsibly using “our sister Mother Earth, which sustains and governs us and produces diverse fruits with colourful flowers and herbs.”

On page 5 he continues with, “Ogni aspirazione a curare e migliorare il mondo richiede di cambiare profondamente gli ‘stili di vita, i modelli di produzione e di consume, le strutture consolidate di potere che oggi reggono le societa.” As I translate, “Any aspiration to care for and improve the world requires changing profoundly lifestyles, the patterns of production and consumption, the established structures of power that today govern society.”

 

I have heard these words before written in the 40-chapter U.N. Agenda 21 document signed by 179 countries in 1992 in Rio de Janeiro and repeated by subsequent Rio conference participants and advocates who really want to destroy capitalism. Here’s a quote by Christina Figueres, Executive Secretary of U.N.‘s Framework Convention on Climate Change, in which she admits that environmental activists and lobbyists aim to destroy capitalism, not save the globe from ecological Armageddon.

20 Comments on The real low-down on Pope Francis’ Encyclical on Climate Change

  1. Makes me long for the buggering, marrying, war-making Medici Popes…

    Maybe it’s time to do what France did, back in the day, and create a second, dual Pope. Or, merge with the Baptists.

    For the record, I ain’t no Cath’lic [sic].

  2. The other curiously ignored part of the Pope’s speaking out against human excesses is the way he also tied abortion in there with things destroying mankind. Somehow, the Left missed that.

  3. Can the College of Cardinals do a recall?
    How about impeachment?

    Pope Francis is espousing an economic ideology notorious for its atheism and animosity towards all religion.

  4. To my understanding, an avenue does exist. It has slim chances of being exercised, probably less so succeeding.

  5. Nathan, you are 100% correct. Many of the most qualified and orthodox catholic clergy are found in Africa today. This Godamned farce is a Jesuit liberation theologian and should never have risen to ANY position above alter boy. He is Obama with a croizer and a miter and will cause more damage than all of his predecessors combined before it is over.

  6. Francis the Talking Ass is going nowhere. They have the option of poisoning him, but since they elected him, I’m pretty certain that he’s exactly what they envisioned. A marxist pervert intent on destroying whatever Faith is left on Earth. An Obola without an Armed Forces. Spreading Satanism with every breath.

  7. Pope Francis recently addressed the Pontifical Academy of the Sciences and had this to say:

    “God is not a divine being or a magician, but the Creator who brought everything to life. Evolution in nature is not inconsistent with the notion of creation, because evolution requires the creation of beings that evolve.”

    So, the Most High God is not divine, but a Creator.

    Is this a civil service position?

    Seriously, I was brought up a Catholic and am now Baptist. Guys like Pope Francis the Fruitcake is one of the reasons why. I wonder if he ever reads the Bible.

  8. I’ve been reading about Dietrich Bohnhoffer, I may be a Lutheran now. My mom would have a heart attack though.

  9. Amen to that, Claudia! Don’t put too much trust in a guy that keeps leading you down the wrong road. Or some putz who likes to kiss the devil’s koran.

    Seek, and ye shall find. Knock, and the door will be opened.

    🙂

  10. “The Church has no competence on the technical and scientific level,” he said, “but rather on the anthropological and ethical levels that relate to scientific phenomenology.”

    [emphasis Uncle Al]

    Weasel. What about scientific ontology, Bishop Toso? Or is it that you assume anyone hearing your words is too ignorant or stupid to understand your distinction, or know that you cannot have phenomena without being?

  11. This is why Catholicism is in serious need of restructuring: married priest/nuns and no more pope. Christianity doesn’t mesh with royalty and the pope is just that.
