Catholic Priests Told to Push Global Warming Propaganda

You can’t destroy Christianity by force; it has been tried. However, you might be able to destroy it through subversion, leaving the churches in place but hollowing out the content and replacing it with nonsense or trendy idiocy until there isn’t any point anymore and the congregation wanders off. For example:

The Catholic Church is intimately concerned about climate change. The Vatican’s Pontifical Academy of Sciences is the world’s oldest, longest running scientific mission. That body, which advises the pope on matters of science, has concluded that global climate change is real and is caused, at least in significant part, by human activity.

This is important to the Church because creation care is part of our mission. We are called to be stewards of creation. It’s also important because climate change can exacerbate the ills of poverty. Poor people in much of the world are the most vulnerable to changes.

Leftist politics is always justified with reference to the sanctity of the poor.

Another consistent theme in leftist politics is the demonization of mankind’s Last Best Hope, the USA:

In the late 1970s, when the issue threatened the financial interests of the fossil fuel industry, the political lobbies, chiefly in the United States, financed a massive political disinformation campaign to manufacture the illusion of dissent within the scientific community.

We are to believe there is only an “illusion of dissent.” The many principled scientists who have risked giving up a ride on the government grant money gravy train to speak out in favor of reality are just a figment of your imagination.

Funny they should mention the 1970s. This was the supposed consensus in those days:

But here is what we are supposed to believe now:

The established community of experts agree with frightful consensus that the planet is warming because of human activity.

This “frightful consensus” may actually constitute a minority view. A peer-reviewed report in Organizational Studies found that most geoscientists and engineers believe that global warming has natural causes and is not a serious problem.

But on the Left, the alleged warming is alleged to be terrible. It can only be rectified by reducing our standard of living, and forcing us to turn over our wealth and freedom to centralized leftist government.

The order has come down to Catholic priests to promote this tyrannical, delusion-based ideology:

Now updated guidelines for the formation of clergy … suggest that in the future, priests will also have a good grasp of the global climate change problem and will share this with their congregation.

Despite protestations that “The Church is not interested in promoting a political agenda,” the topic of global warming has far more to do with politics than it does with science — neither of which is within the purview of religion.

Galileo weighs in, having some experience with church-mandated “science.”

    Galileo, who was funded and supported by the Church, was not sanctioned for his theory – not yet demonstrated – but rather for demanding that his theory – not yet demonstrated – be made Church teaching. Smart guy, but something of a jerk. Modern science began with the Church and with Church institutions – the Vatican observatory, after all, is one of the oldest – in what some are pleased to call “the dark ages.”

    Ignorant groupthinkers running the Church. I have already “wandered off”.

    Just as a fish ROTS from the head down, so does the (now Marxist) Catholic Church.

    I wandered off about 10 years ago after over 60 years.I had had enough of pedophile gay priests, the cover ups and left wing politics from the pulpit.

    Maybe if they are good little Nazis the alligator will eat them last. Or possibly they will be able to outmaneuver Islam to become the official state sponsored religion of the NWO America.

    Catholics should be ashamed.

  6. Fiberal says:

    The left turned away from global cooling for two important reasons: it was difficult at the time to attribute global cooling to anthropogenic causes.

    And then it started to get warmer.

    Now with their unfalsifiable models and a heat paradigm, they struck on a formula that they could use to sell a religious understanding to children, the naive, the mentally-challenged, liberals and butt-crazy angry dwarf hairdressers; namely, that pollution generating CO2 can cause a greenhouse effect.

    Voila! ….. the missing tie-in. All is well in the Ivory Tower.

    Moreover, driven by globalists yearning to give money to the more worthless countries of the world, industry-generated pollution turns out to be the perfect catalyst. Not that the left doesn’t try to explain cooling when it happens — the polar vortex being the latest tap dance on how climate change can produce large-scale cooling.

    But that one doesn’t really pass the laugh test since the currency for climate change continues to rely on heat; at least inasmuch as it is backed by reams of data produced by commercially-available global warming software.

    if the catholic church wants to help the poor, they can encourage contraception in the 3rd world. that would take care of several problems. and make the pope fly commercial. when i see a picture of the pontiff being “screened” by the tsa; i’ll give up my pickup

    After sinking to the depths of aiding Hitler and siding with Obama everything else just seems minor…

    Okaaaaay, so where are we in the timeline of St. John’s Apocalypse?

  10. Occam's Stubble says:

    It’s also important because climate change can exacerbate the ills of poverty. Poor people in much of the world are the most vulnerable to changes.

    Gee, I wonder what hurts poor people more, adding 2C to the mean temperature over the next century or doubling the cost of energy today?
