The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops wrote on Monday to “welcome this important move by the administration to adopt long-awaited standards to mitigate climate change and safeguard public health.”
The bishops went further, encouraging lawmakers to “oppose legislation and appropriations riders designed to reverse efforts to implement a national standard to reduce carbon pollution from existing power plants.”
Archbishop Cupich and other spiritual shepherds should be wary of how this administration is conscripting religious institutions. Here’s a small but illustrative example: The EPA recently awarded an $84,000 grant to the University of Michigan to study how 17 faith institutions have organized “sustainability programs,” with the goal of developing workshops for pastors and faith leaders. “The results will provide insights into the role of religion and faith communities in motivating environmental behavior,” the grant said. The real purpose is to figure out how to better use religious leaders as political pawns.
Pope Francis should avoid making any imprudent statements during his visit to the U.S. in September, lest he get further entangled in the president’s agenda.
This plan will do little if anything to accomplish Pope Francis’ aims of addressing global climate change or encouraging humans to be better stewards of the earth.
Nicholas Hahn seems to have bought into the global warming hoax. He also seems to be naïve as to how Pope Francis and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops are partnering with Barack Obama in his endeavor to make Baal the god of this country.
I can see how people find it hard to believe how the pope can get a majority of the catholic bishops to partner in this satanic endeavor. But you have to understand how people have been duped into believing that big government should be the god of their lives and take care of all their needs.
