Last night we watched a CBS 60 Minutes program about the changes Pope Francis is making in the Catholic Church, a rebroadcast of previous segments, while noting his recent accomplishments in diplomacy. The Pope was cited by President Barack Obama as a key player in the thawing relations between the US and Cuba. The Argentinian pontiff has been lecturing his cardinals on the need to clean up Vatican politics, and focus more on the needs of the poor.
Now he has decide to take on climate change and use it as tool for wealth distributions, which was the original purpose of the global warming initiative when it was crafted by global environmentalist organizations in the 1990s.
The UK Guardian has some details:
. . . In 2015, the pope will issue a lengthy message on the subject to the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics, give an address to the UN general assembly and call a summit of the world’s main religions.
The reason for such frenetic activity, says Bishop Marcelo Sorondo, chancellor of the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy of Sciences, is the pope’s wish to directly influence next year’s crucial UN climate meeting in Paris, when countries will try to conclude 20 years of fraught negotiations with a universal commitment to reduce emissions.
“Our academics supported the pope’s initiative to influence next year’s crucial decisions,” Sorondo told Cafod, the Catholic development agency, at a meeting in London. “The idea is to convene a meeting with leaders of the main religions to make all people aware of the state of our climate and the tragedy of social exclusion.”
Following a visit in March to Tacloban, the Philippine city devastated in 2012 by typhoon Haiyan, the pope will publish a rare encyclical on climate change and human ecology. Urging all Catholics to take action on moral and scientific grounds, the document will be sent to the world’s 5,000 Catholic bishops and 400,000 priests, who will distribute it to parishioners.
According to Vatican insiders, Francis will meet other faith leaders and lobby politicians at the general assembly in New York in September, when countries will sign up to new anti-poverty and environmental goals.
Apparently Pope Francis has discovered how easy it is to extort wealth from the left and in come cases from the right for a global cause to save the planet from destruction, but in fact is nothing more than a wealth distribution scam.
In recent months, the pope has argued for a radical new financial and economic system to avoid human inequality and ecological devastation. In October he told a meeting of Latin American and Asian landless peasants and other social movements: “An economic system centred on the god of money needs to plunder nature to sustain the frenetic rhythm of consumption that is inherent to it.
As God’s spokesman, Pope Francis thinks the free markets economic systems is flawed and we need to move away from that system, and create universal poverty, by transferring wealth from the rich to the poor, destroying the system that created the welath in the first place. Then we can all be poor.
“The system continues unchanged, since what dominates are the dynamics of an economy and a finance that are lacking in ethics. It is no longer man who commands, but money. Cash commands.
“The monopolising of lands, deforestation, the appropriation of water, inadequate agro-toxics are some of the evils that tear man from the land of his birth. Climate change, the loss of biodiversity and deforestation are already showing their devastating effects in the great cataclysms we witness,” he said.
God’s spokesman has decided to use anthropogenic climate change as a tool for economic change. We are back to the original purpose for promoting anthropogenic climate change wealth redistribution.
