Dangerous Green Encyclical Ready

   Summary

  • Francis’s encyclical is expected to call for action on climate change  PopeFrancisPlantingtree2
  • The pope has said he believes climate change is largely man-made
  • A widely read Italian Catholic writer warns that action on climate change could lead to population control
  • He cited Catholic doctrine that every life is sacred and cannot be sacrificed, even to save the planet

Vatican officials confirmed this week that Pope Francis’ much-anticipated encyclical letter on the environment is finished and ready for translation, and should be released in June. An “encyclical” is the most developed form of papal teaching, and this will be the very first such document ever devoted entirely to the environment.

To set the table, the Vatican co-hosted a summit on climate change in Rome this week along with the United Nations, with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon as the headliner. The Heartland Institute, a leading American forum for climate change and global warming skeptics, organized a rump event in Rome, but those voices were pointedly not invited inside the Vatican and UN conference.

The near-universal expectation is that Francis’s encyclical will lend the moral authority of the Catholic Church to calls for stronger environmental protection, including limits on greenhouse gas emissions as part of the anti-climate change push.

Francis has already tipped his hand about the document’s contents in multiple ways.

He’s said he wanted the document out by mid-2015 so it would influence a UN climate change summit set for Paris in December. The pontiff said he hopes the nations gathered at the event will make “courageous” choices – clearly implying that he doesn’t believe efforts to date have been especially courageous.

In January, he went on record saying he believes climate change is largely man-made, going so far as to fault humanity for “slapping around” the natural world. Francis is also fond of saying, whenever talk turns to the environment, that “God always forgives, man sometimes forgives, but nature never forgives.”  Source 

Comment

Make sure you read the source article to the end.  It is more terrifying that a Hammer House of Horrors movie.  Pope Francis seems to have fallen for the “green” propaganda hook, line and Fisherman’s Ring. What on EARTH is the point of a “green” encyclical? Isn’t the Pope aware of the inseparable link between alleged “green” issues and population control?  The source article refers to the fears of pro-life activists – are they right to be afraid of what might transpire now that Pope Francis has allied the Catholic Church to the population control movement, via his entirely pointless – and very dangerous – “green” encyclical?

  1. Crucifixion, hanging, beheading, maiming, raping, murders, genocide, sex slavery, church and shrine desecration, kidnappings, slavery, slaughter of priests and religious and forced conversions, Catholics/ our beloved separated brethren in concentrations camps in Vietnam, North Korea, Laos, Burma, and persecution in Cuba, Russia, China and India. These are some of the minor and unimportant things facing Pope Francis’s own flock and separated brethren each day. Forget defending the Body of Christ and the freedom and exaltation of our Holy Mother the Church, the Pope clearly has bigger fish to fry, to wit, climate change.

    The Pope, I doubt, is a freemason or a paid up member of the Jewish lobby. I even doubt he is a communist. He does not need to be, as he is so infected with the poisonous contagion of modernism, he is doing their evil work without them asking for it. He is actively subsuming the Catholic Church, or at least its visible structure into the Satanic thraldom of world government, the UN and the EU.

    The UN has clearly shown itself to be inimical to the Church. Kristen Sandberg, a Norwegian, and Chairwoman/ man/ person (whatever the wimmin’s libbers want to call it) of the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, said the church must change its teachings on abortion, contraception and homosexuality to accommodate ‘changing culture’. Hardly the stance of a friendly organisation is it?

    Earth to Pope Francis….GERRAGRIP!!!!

  2. This Encyclical on mythical climate change is just another example of what happens when the supernatural Catholic Faith gets eroded away in a soul; worldly issues, real or imagined, begin to dominate the mind and heart. There is a clear absence of trust in the Creator by creatures who think the survival of the planet depends on the them. His Holiness, sadly, thinks as men think, not as God thinks. The salvation of souls should be his business, not the saving of the planet.

  3. I definitely do think the pro-lifers are right to be worried. Pope Francis is already on record agreeing with the UN that three children is “about right” (I think those were his exact words) although he rushed afterwards to praise large families. I find it very hard to take the whole green movement seriously, I think it’s a joke, so it is very concerning to see a pope taking his lead from them.

    • Not just “taking his lead from them” but putting it round his own neck. And there’s no prizes for guessing where they’ll try to take him for his walkies!

      By the way, I hope he’s releasing this encyclical only in electronic form. Surely he won’t want more trees to be slaughtered needlessly.

      • Confitebor Domino,

        “By the way, I hope he’s releasing this encyclical only in electronic form. Surely he won’t want more trees to be slaughtered needlessly.”

        Priceless!

        And maybe the one good thing to come out of this nonsense might be a decision to stop travelling by plane – as long as the railway and sea-captain makes sure there is no provision for microphones on their modes of transport!

        Honestly, if we didn’t laugh, we’d cry – buckets 😯

  4. I praise God daily for the reformation showing the inherent spiritual irrelevance of the papal office. How sad is it that in just 10 years we’ve gone from a pope who risked his life fighting the demonic and evil ideologies of communism/socialism/liberalism/marxism/progressivism to one who preaches advocating for it. Jesus wants us to help the widow and the orphan, liberalism always only destroys, enslaves and murders. Francis may be inspired by other worldly powers, but it sure as HELL isn’t from God.

    • Andrew Hansen,

      I’m not sure that I’m understanding your comment properly, so forgive me if I’m on the wrong track.

      The Church has had popes who displayed, at times, weakness of character (St Peter!) and others who were immoral (no room to list!) and there also were those who, in their private writings and sermons, preached error. All well documented, so I won’t waste space repeating here what is to be found in various places on this blog already.

      However, no matter how “bad” any pope may be, in human terms (and Pope Francis is top of my list as you will know if you frequent this blog) that does not and cannot make the papal office “irrelevant”. Nothing can.

      The astonishing fact is that, for all the weak through to immoral through to bad popes we’ve had down the centuries, to quote the Anglican convert, G.K. Chesterton in his book “Orthodoxy” (written when he was still an Anglican), still we have “the wild truth reeling but erect.”

      Only within the Catholic Church do we find the fullness of God’s divine revelation of Himself and His moral law. That was true two thousand years ago and it remains true to this day.

      We are living through a period of particular and unique crisis in the Church and in the world. Foretold, of course, by Our Lady: in the 17th century at Quito in Ecuador, at Fatima in 1917 and at Akita, Japan, in 1973. God has given us plenty of warning and has ensured that even the “liberal” twentieth century popes recognised, as worthy of belief, each of these apparitions. These are all, in other words, Church approved messages from Heaven. So, there is no doubt about it, we are living through a unique period of crisis in the history of the Church. And we have had a series of popes fuelling the fires. Pope Francis, of course, is in a league of his own and really does take the proverbial biscuit. But keep watching this space, because no matter how bad any pope is, he remains the holder of the keys, the Vicar of Christ on earth and, despite himself, Pope Francis will not be able to effect the revolution he apparently craves.

      You are correct in that if, as seems to be the case, Pope Francis is “inspired” to destroy the Faith, albeit unwittingly (in a sense), that inspiration does not come from God. What DOES come from God, however, is the guarantee that those gates of Hell to which you refer, will never prevail against the graces He will always bestow on His Church. Bet money on it! Just like any other and every previous pope in history, Pope Francis may command our obedience when he is upholding the Catholic Faith as it has been handed down to us from the Apostles – not as he wishes it had been handed down or as it is being handed on by heretics writing in Catholic newspapers and/or addressing audiences on Catholic premises, with the implicit approval of the local bishops. Anything novel, we are at liberty to ignore – indeed, we are duty-bound to refuse and to fight against, as Confirmed Soldiers of Christ. “Green” encyclical? Yeah right.

      Tell me if I’ve misinterpreted your comment. If so, apologies 😀

  5. Editor,
    From the source article:
    “The ultimate goal of U.N. climate negotiations is to stabilize greenhouse gases at a level that keeps global warming below 2 degrees C (3.6 F), compared with pre-industrial times. Negotiations culminating in the Nov. 30-Dec. 11 meeting in Paris will rise or fall on two key points: How to divide responsibility for global warming and how to pay to fight it.”

    This “global Warming” and “Environmental Degradation ” caused by human activity as portrayed by the MSM, I find to be suspicious if not downright sinister. Especially since other planets in the Solar System are undergoing atmospheric heating and subsequent weather changes caused by long term cyclic Solar activity. See the link below. Anyway, maybe Pope Francis will write something on the Novissimi. It’s been 50 years since I last heard a sermon on this topic.

  6. Btw Editor, You called me a silly Thing” or words to that effect a few days ago 😦 I think I am a quite on the ball girl……

    • Helen,

      If I called you a “silly girl”, console yourself with the thought that I frequently describe myself as “a very BAD girl”!

      I’d sooner be “silly” any day. Say nothing… !

  7. This Pope is trying to keep on the side of Mammon and not on the side of God . The effect on the environment can change in one second as the Nepal earthquake showed . Also the biggest threat to the Earth “for by us Humans dropping Atomic Bombs “is according to experts Volcanic Erruptions . In saying that every week there seems to be another Bad Erruptions from our so called Catholic Leaders.

    • FOOF,

      “The effect on the environment can change in one second as the Nepal earthquake showed ”

      AND the effect on the population – at LEAST 10,000 dead and the count continues.

  8. What more can you want …..An Encyclical to save a planet which God has already promised will not be destroyed again (promise to the survivors of Noah’s ark)….a childless Nicola Sturgeon claiming she is defending the future of Scotland’s children and making sure she has control of other peoples.

    Not one leader in the Scots debate challenged her on the Named Child scheme. I don’t know any totalitarian regime in history or in power to today which has such appalling legislation threatening the sanctity of the family and parental prerogatives.

    How sad..pray for our country.

    • Robert Ian Williams,

      “An Encyclical to save a planet which God has already promised will not be destroyed again (promise to the survivors of Noah’s ark”

      That is an excellent point. Well said.

      I agree with everything you say, except “pray for our country” – Scotland is a separate country!

      • Sorry post flew up before I finished, I meant to say “So we should pray for England and Wales as well! “

      • Robert Ian Williams,

        I see the point you are making and I agree with it. However, I should clarify that the Scriptural texts, as well as the teaching of the Church, remind us that God will in fact purge the world again at the end of time, with fire.

        The promise made to Noah and his descendents in Genesis is that God will never again destroy the world by flood. Here’s the relevant chapter from the Douay Rheims Catholic Bible:

        “And I will remember my covenant with you, and with every living soul that beareth flesh: and there shall no more be waters of a flood to destroy all flesh. And the bow shall be in the clouds, and I shall see it, and shall remember the everlasting covenant, that was made between God and every living soul of all flesh which is upon the earth.” (Gen: 9:15).

        That God will purge the world a second time (the end time) with fire, however, is Scripturally certain and absolute. Hence, in 2 Peter 3:7-12, we read:

        “…Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished. But the heavens and the earth which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of the ungodly men. But of this one thing be not ignorant, my beloved, that one day with the Lord is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord delayeth not his promise, as some imagine, but dealeth patiently for your sake, not willing that any should perish, but that all should return to penance. But the day of the Lord shall come as a thief, in which the heavens shall pass away with great violence, and the elements shall be melted with heat, and the earth and the works which are in it, shall be burnt up.

        Seeing then that all these things are to be dissolved, what manner of people ought you to be in holy conversation and godliness? Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of the Lord, by which the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with the burning heat? But we look for new heavens and a new earth according to his promises, in which justice dwelleth.”

        Again, in Apocalypse 21:1, we read:

        “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth. For the first heaven and the first earth was gone, and the sea is now no more. And I John saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.”

        Challoner notes, in regard to this Scriptural text “The first heaven and the first earth was gone: being changed, not as to their substance, but in their qualities”.

        So God will purge the world again at the end of time regardless of Pope Francis’ “Friends of the Earth” Encyclical. What a contrast between the teaching of St. Peter (above) and his successor Francis. The former is fixed on the supernatural and eternal, the latter on the purely natural and fleeting.
