Pope talks about climate change on first visit to America, and then proves it is getting hotter by causing conservative heads to explode.

Source
So today it has been wall to wall Pope-aganda. You can't get away from the guy.

Every cable news station now looks like the Christian Broadcasting Network. And every talking head has now seemingly converted to Catholicism.

To be honest I am completely Poped out.

However I did find this portion interesting during his remarks at the White House earlier today:

Mr. President, I find it encouraging that you are proposing an initiative for reducing air pollution. Accepting the urgency, it seems clear to me also that climate change is a problem which can no longer be left to a future generation. When it comes to the care of our “common home”, we are living at a critical moment of history. We still have time to make the changes needed to bring about “a sustainable and integral development, for we know that things can change” (Laudato Si’, 13). Such change demands on our part a serious and responsible recognition not only of the kind of world we may be leaving to our children, but also to the millions of people living under a system which has overlooked them. Our common home has been part of this group of the excluded which cries out to heaven and which today powerfully strikes our homes, our cities and our societies. To use a telling phrase of the Reverend Martin Luther King, we can say that we have defaulted on a promissory note and now is the time to honor it.

Now that is really wonderful, not only did Pope Francis discuss the most important challenge of our time, climate change, but he also commended President Obama for working to resolve the problem.

That is really wonderful and should make both Catholics and everyday Americans feel great about their Pope and their President.

Yeah right!

Here is how Fox News host Stuart Varney responded to the speech: 

“I’ve got to repeat, I was shocked at how much time the pope spent on climate change! And how he walked right into the politics of climate change!” 

“We have just sat though the president of the United States greeting Pope Francis to the White House and then the pope then launched into a 15 minute speech, in which it was largely about climate change and how we’ve all got to get on board with efforts to combat climate change,” Varney continued. “I think he stepped right into policy… I’m astonished by this!” 

“This is pure politics, that’s what it is,” Varney insisted. “You raise the price of energy, what does that do to poor people in Africa, parts of Asia, Latin America, it impoverishes them. And the pope is now advocating precisely those policies. 

“Where’s the statement about saving my soul?” he asked. “The holy father is in the United States of America, a minister to my soul, the soul of all Catholics, all Christians. Come on!”

Well good luck getting into heaven with THAT attitude.

Varney is far from the only conservative who is rending his garments over this visit.

Mike Huckabee is not expressing so much anger at the Pope as he is angry with the President for his “classless decision to transform Pope Francis’ visit to the White House into a politicized cattle call for gay and pro-abortion activists.”

Other Republican presidential candidates are also irritated at the Pope for his "divisive" message.(Meaning one that too closely resembles the one attributed to that carpenter from Galilee.)

Yeah like I said I am pretty done paying too much attention to the Pope's visit at this point, but I do have to say that just the fact that he freaks the conservatives out this much makes him probably one of my favorite Pope's thus far.

Though to be honest that's a pretty short list.

      As a recovering female excatholic I will say that though not far enough, Pope Francis has brought the church "up to speed" somewhat, probably over 1,000 yrs in the last 4.

      As a recovering catholic I am not against religion, but against religions for what they do to women. For those that will not leave the church as I have chosen to do,
      For those women still in the church we must acknowledge that Pope Francis has been a reformer and moved the church forward and hopefully with enough support the voting cardinals will continue to do so.
      As a female I actually hate having to feel like I need to pick religion over my own body, I would be much more content with being able to select both.


      BTW The RCC's track record on science is much above other christian sects.

      While you may not be able to grasp this all, this is how many of us "recovering catholics" feel.

    Whatever your personal religious beliefs, the Pope is the head of a church of one billion members. He's putting himself into positions that are not popular, in his church or in the halls of power.
    But the force of his words will have a great effect -- I truly believe that it will make many people begin to really think about these issues.
    And what do John Boehner, Antonin Scalia, Joe Biden, Sonia Sotomayor, John Robers, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito have in common: they're Roman Catholics. He's their spiritual leader.. It doesn't mean they will all agree on some of these topics, but they have to know, in their hearts, that they have something deeply in common when these subjects are debated in the future.
    Five or ten years from now, I think we'll start to see the changes that the Pope is urging his flock, and everything living on the planet, to work together.

      @2:42 ~ Catholic women take birth control and have abortions.

      However, there are probably millions of devout Catholic women who equate missing Mass with birth control and abortions; all are equally sins against the church.

      If you think about it, Catholicism is the funnest religion. You get to smoke, drink, and go to church on Saturday night (fulfills Sunday's obligation) so you won't have to get up early on Sunday. You can take birth control and have abortions (quietly) and then there's Purgatory so you won't have to be skeered of Dante's levels of hell fire. The living can pray you out of Purgatory and on into Heaven.

      Yes, i left the Catholic Church when i was 25, but i carried with me a disdain for ritualistic forgiveness regardless of your behavior (Confession) whilst walking among the living.

  15. Anonymous at 5:02, the Catholic Church has a fruitful track record with science. For a scholarly approach, you could read "The Genesis of Science," by James Hannam, Cambridge-educated Ph.D. in the history and philosophy of science. Or just do a Google search on Catholic scientific accomplishments. From the fathers of genetics and the Big Bang theory (Gregor Mendel and Georges Lemaitre, respectively) to recent Nobel prize winner Brian Kobilka, organ transplant pioneer Joseph Murray, Harvard biology and math prof Martin Nowak, and my personal favorite, paleontologist and cosmologist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin--the varied fields of science have always been replete with brilliant devout Catholics. Also, evolution has been taught in Catholic schools for decades.

    No surprise then that Pope Francis, a typically intellectual Jesuit, has a profound understanding of climate change and the urgent need to address it.

    6. It makes sense if you read what historians of science like Hannam and Principe have to say on the topic. The Church founded the institution of universities and hospitals, thus laying the groundwork for the pursuit of all the sciences. The subtitle of Hannam's "The Genesis of Science" is "How the Christian Middle Ages Launched the Scientific Revolution."

      Many of these early scientists were monks and/or academics in Catholic institutions, which sponsored their work and fostered the pursuit of greater knowledge, which was then disseminated to others.

      In more modern times, many scientists credit their faith for inspiring their scientific careers. Dr. James Murray wrote "Surgery of the Soul," about his work with skin grafts and other medical advances, in which he describes living his Catholic faith through his work. He was a co-winner of the Nobel Prize for medicine in 1990. Dr. Nowak is actively involved in speaking on the intertwining of his faith and his scientific work. He particularly points out the fallacies in the conflict theory of religion and science, which was deliberately manufactured in the 19th century.

      So when considering the Catholic Church and scientific progress, there is plenty of "there" there. You just have to be curious, read and study a lot, and keep an open mind.

Now here's this guy who is supposed to be the spiritual leader of a good chunk of the RWNJs, who is speaking about things that would actually make the world a better place. He thinks and acts more like Jesus than any self-proclaimed Christian I've ever witnessed. I'm not renouncing my Atheism, but I think this is the most inspirational Pope of my lifetime, and I think he deserves our support.

      Not implying at all that she and he children deserved to die, but from reading the story, it seems she was living the good life because of his illegal doing and it also seems she should have know what was going on or was involved in it.

      I don't understand why you are so weirdly inserting the Palin name on this event? Please explain yourself? Don't see why you would do that.

      10:29 AM Can't you see the corelation between Todd Palin's illegal activity and Sarah Palin's knowledge of it? The illicit income from Todd, the crimes committed by their children and the cover ups by the Police for them? Maybe you won't be satisfied until their is a Palin meltdown and a murder suicide in their home.

      There is no correlation between this tragedy and the Palins.... any more than between this tragedy and your family 9:07.

      So again, why insert the Palin name into a murder suicide that took place in SD- with zero connection? Less than zero. Waiting for laurensd to explain because it makes no sense, and frankly seems a bit sick to do such a weird thing.

      Please do explain yourself laurensd.

      9:25 AM Why should anyone explain anything about the Dysfunctional Palins to you, are you their attorney? Are you a Palin, or are you just a Palin ass kisser. BTW the Palins are from the Dakotas.

      @9:25 AM How would you know anything about my family? Are you a fortune teller? You have no way of knowing if the same type of crime has happened in my family. So you don't deserve an explanation. Go troll somewhere else.

    Arizona must be real proud of their idiots. representative carpetbagger Mr "gozar" a dentist, and declaring and being the most recent idiot. says, "The Pope should talk about Climate Change on his personal time" good gosh!!!! another republican voted into office by another idiot. Do nothings that are only in place to represent idiots. There is no wonder that the USA is at least 25 yrs behind in the world today.

    I checked in on an old couple of republicans friends. They watch fox 24/7. I ask on their take on all the clowns and then the Pope coming to town. The reply to all was inline with the last 7yrs. I was sad for them, did not offer to debate and left. Fox news alone is responsible for the division of Americans. Evil. Have a great yom kippur and atonement everyone. The Pope will tell the republicans where to go in am.

    Unlike Sarah Palin, Pope Francis has a degree in the sciences.

    Anonymous7:31 PM

    Pope Francis has some training as a "chemical technician"

    $$$$$$$$

    That doesn't hold water to Sarah Palin's collegiate education.

    Sarah Palin went to 5 ivy league colleges and has a degree in journalism, degree in energy and a degree in climate change.

    "Paleo Palin" Fresh. Organic. So thankful Todd just bagged a freezer full.

    1. I call bullshit on Sarah Palin. Todd is too busy bagging hoohah at his massage therapy business. The only thing Todd filled up is your washing machine with your facecloths he used to roll up his used condoms. Sarah tell Todd that Shailey Tripp wants the money he owes her.

    2. According to Wikipedia :
    The British Dietetic Association named the paleo diet as among the five worst celebrity-endorsed diets of 2015, saying it risks being "unbalanced, time consuming, [and] socially isolating" and so "a sure-fire way to develop nutrient deficiencies".[6]

    David L. Katz and Stephanie Meller have written that the paleolithic diet presents a "scientific case" in part because of its anthropological basis, but that there is comparatively limited evidence supporting its health benefit over other popular contemporary diets.[7]

    According to evolutionary biologist Marlene Zuk of the University of Minnesota: "Those who follow the [paleo] diet may be missing out on vital nutrients, and it is believed that could create long term health problems, in particular for adolescent girls who may be at risk of developing osteoporosis later in life as a result of not getting enough calcium."[8]

    Pope brought up climate change because if we don't fix it now,man won't survive. GOP sounds a little butthurt over the Pope's message. How very Christian of them.

    There is something laughable about advocating unlimited population growth then whining about climate change.

  33. "And how he walked right into the politics of climate change!”
    -------------------------------------------
    How very insulting and patronizing. The pope is better educated and familiar with world issues and politics than Varney could ever hope to be.

    “Where’s the statement about saving *my* soul?” he asked. “The holy father is in the United States of America, a minister to *my* soul, blah, blah, blah”
    ----------------------------------------------
    Jesus jumped up Christ on a chariot-driven sidecar*, talk about missing His point on, well, everything. "Waah! The pope is talking about caring for billions of people and God's creation instead of meeeeee!"

    The pope did discuss your soul, you damn fool. You were just too self-absorbed to listen.

    *As my dear late uncle used to say.

  34. Soooo, every two-bit clergy person in the US can insert themselves into political issues all the live long day, because everything including the constitution is under god (see Kim Davis) and must be acted on in light of however some god-botherer interprets the bible according to fox news.

    But the Pope cannot speak out on political issues.

    All righty then!

      The Pope and many popes before him speaks on one particular political issue constantly. He advocates incessantly for unfettered population growth.

    This pope is better then his predecessors.

    If the catholic church wanted to right the wrongs of this world, they could open the vatican vaults and easily pay to correct nearly everything wrong with the earth and it's populations.

    That will happen when hell freezes over... if I believed in hell.
