Posted on 11/15/2019 11:26:01 AM PST by C19fan
Pope Francis, who has made the environment a signature cause of his pontificate, said he was strongly considering adding the category of ecological sin to the Catholic Churchs official compendium of teachings.
Pope Francis has stressed the importance of environmental protection since his election in 2013. He dedicated an entire encyclical, Laudato Si, published in 2015, to the topic.
In that document, he called global warming a major threat to life on the planet and called for a reduction in the use of fossil fuels. He also blamed the global market economy for plundering the earth at the expense of the poor and future generations.

This guy is just begging for people to leave the flock!
Who will rid me of this meddlesome commie rat bastard?
Did Jesus ever tell a parable over environmental sin??
The Eleventh Commandment!
This pope is deluded into thinking he can define sin.
And all practicing Catholics enable it.
This really makes me feel terrible for my fellow Catholics who have repeatedly said that they will “never ever ever ever ever ever EVER leave Holy Mother Church!”
By the time he’s done this fellow is going to leave them no other choice.
Claiming that man is in charge of the environment runs counter to the existence of God himself running things. Some Pope.
Praise Mother Gaia, from whom all blessings flow, time to let the Jesus guy go. (new line for Francis’ earth centric worship service.)
What an asshole. The fake pope can go suck @ in hell.
WHEN will the Catholic Church start reviewing resumes for this Commie pinhead's replacement?! Even though I have great differences with Catholicism (I'm a nondenominational, formerly denominated, Believer), I had great respect for John Paul II but this guy is a complete sham and a disgrace to the Catholic Church.
Great! ... But will this lead to addressing China’s (Beijing’s) immoral system—materialism over humanity and ecology?
India and China are up shiff’s creek then.
Thou shalt not commit the original sin of expanding carbon footprint, for even for the least of this carbon, he died so that we may live carbon free. In the name of the blather, the bun and the holy boast.
( This pope is a Vaticanular Socialist, not much of a Christian)
Ecological Sin = POPULATION CONTROL!!!!!!!!!!
thou shalt not burneth thy fossil fuels
Lighten up, Francis!
Has he met with mean-faced Swedish girl yet?
I suspect he will.
I also suspect many Catholics are not taking such guidance from him anymore.
