Pope Francis: Eco-Warrior

“Political pundits from both sides of the proverbial aisle also praised the pope’s plea.”

I think this points up a fundamental problem that congress has.  When the tyrants speak of “the proverbial aisle”, they are talking about the aisle between Democrats and Republicans.  I think they should add another aisle – one that separates conservatives from the other two.  Maybe then, when the politicians stand up for what they agree with, people would see what each group stands for, and the population of the conservative side would grow.

When I think of a Warrior, I think of

Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For wed are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.
References for Ephesians 6:12 Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared.e ×
References for Ephesians 6:15 In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil.f
References for Ephesians 6:16
Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.g

Ephesians 6:10-18
