The “green” movement has been so successful in spreading its propaganda, that there are actually people who worry about the future of the earth. I know of one lady who has told her married children that she doesn’t want grandchildren, because that is damaging to the planet. Crackers. This is the mindset of a pagan. No follower of Christ can be a “green” fanatic. It’s a whole different gospel.
Christ spoke clearly about the Christian attitude to ‘green issues’ when he said: “Be not solicitous for your life, what you shall eat, nor for your body, what you shall wear. Is not the life more than the meat and the body more than the garment? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow, nor do they reap, nor gather into barns; and your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are not you of much more value than they? And which of you, by worrying, can add one hour to your life? … Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow, yet they labour not, neither do they spin. But, I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory was arrayed as one of these… O ye of little faith… Be not solicitous for tomorrow, for tomorrow will take care of itself. Sufficient for the day is the evil thereof.” (Matthew 6:25 ff)
Share your ideas about what might be the correct Catholic response to the scare-tactics employed by the disciples of the “green” movement. Perhaps you agree with Pope Francis on this? Good, me, neither! What, then?
