In what I believe was probably a very rare exercise in sarcasm, blogger, Athanasius, emailed me the other day to say that he was greatly looking forward to the new encyclical, adding “Ireland has just officially apostatised from the Faith and the Pope’s writing about the environment. Things are truly bad!”
Quite. The Church is falling apart before our very eyes, with apostasy writ large just about everywhere, and Pope Francis – instead of concerning himself with the question of how to end the diabolically-inspired crisis within the Church, which has resulted in worldwide apostasy – is worrying himself to death about how to improve the weather. Crackers
When can we expect an encyclical condemning the errors of our times and exhorting obedience to the moral law, as revealed by God and entrusted to His Church to preach and promote? When?
Well, the Pope has laid his cards on the table. He’s a “believer”. Where does that leave Catholics like myself, who do NOT believe that the weather is caused or changed by human beings… People like me who remember Our Lord’s exhortation not to worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will take care of itself? And where does it leave the papolatrists among us, who think the Pope’s every word is infallible? Could it be that the Holy Spirit is telling us that we ought to believe in man-made climate change?
Tell us if the new encyclical has evangelised YOU into believing the doctrine of “man-made climate change” or, if – like me – you agree with those commentators who suggest that the Pope should “leave science to the scientists” and further, that he should get down to ending the crisis in the Church, speaking out against the widespread loss of divine and Catholic Faith around us, apologise for his dereliction of duty in saying “who am I to judge?” (grave sin) and admit that the Church has gone off the rails in the past 50 years thanks to that Council. After all, he has to start somewhere if he wants to “save the Faith”. And he must want to “save the Faith”… surely?
