Pope Criticizes Climate Change
Deniers and Trump on DACA

New York Times, by Jason Horowitz

ROME — As he flew near Caribbean islands devastated by Hurricane Irma on his way back to the Vatican from Colombia on Sunday, Pope Francis said that political leaders and others who denied climate change reminded him of a passage from the psalms about man’s stubbornness. “Man is stupid, the Bible said,” he said. “It’s like that, when you don’t want to see, you don’t see.” In a typically wide-ranging news conference that included his questioning of United States President Donald J. Trump’s commitment to issues of life because of his plan to strip undocumented immigrant children of protections from

Just shut and preach and stay out of leftist politics!! I´m so sick of this Communist Pope. It further proves that the radical left has infiltrated the Catholic church. As is shown in the link below that has been the goal of the evil Soros and John Podesta. I´m not Catholic, but it sure makes me sick for all of those who are.

Contd. It really is telling that he made comments while flying over the devastation in the Caribbean and didn´t care about those who suffered such destruction. Instead he used it as a forum for hateful, needless political rhetoric. Where is is concern and prayers for those poor devastated people? He´s just disgusting.

This communist Pope needs to shut up. The Pope is not supposed to be a politician of any kind.

I don´t think it is simply the job of the Pope to shut up and pray or to even butt out of American politics. He is the head of the Catholic Church. In this sense, wherever evil resides he needs to confront it. If the US was involved in evil, like Hitler evil, he has a responsibility to speak out. Considering disputed science, he needs to leave it to the secular world. Abortion is an evil, not a mere American act. He needs to speak out. DACA is not an evil, it is the American political system at work. Not only is that none of his business, he is hypocritical, given his wall; and the hypocrisy is damaging to the Church. This Pope seem hellbent on blowing a great opportunity. He seems to be foundering. He seems to lack an coherent understanding of his role. He needs to focus on providing guidance on the evils of our times. To draw clear lines on those corrupting forces. He seems confused like I would be but not the Agent of God. We face much confusion and evil and we need a clear sighted leader whether we are Catholics or not. Dare I say he seems to be the victim of the Pete Principal?

Although the election of Pope Francis was VALID, it now seems to be an imprudent choice. Having said that, I am truly dismayed by the terribly disrespectful posts by Catholics and non-Catholics alike. I, too, am in agreement that this pontiff appears to be quite leftist in his leanings. If people are truly concerned about the truth than the most charitable thing for us is to PRAY that the RC Church survives this upheaval. FYI, Pope Emeritus Benedict lives within the Vatican walls and NOT at Castle Gandolfo. He is a saving grace for the church.

I also agree with the poster who noticed that the Pope, flying over all the ravaged and devastation of the Caribbean islands would not say something comforting for these poor people to strengthen them in the aftermath of Irma. No, Francis continues to strike out at us "climate deniers" and our POTUS for rejecting the illegal, and also, unconstitutional EO known as DACA!! As we know, Presidents DON´T LEGISLATE, CONGRESS DOES!! Let us continue to PRAY for all those people left in the paths of Harvey & Irma.

The whole "climate change" issue is all about pollution with the added bonus of looking for a new tax source (i.e. cap and trade).

The Paris Accords told us that, since only 0.17 C would be reduced if EVERY goal was met by EVERY nation - by the year 2100.

Would not likely be noticed by most people.

DACA, was an EO, by a president who repeatedly stated he didn´t have the authority to do what he did, but did it anyhow for political calculations, only to find out by the Courts it was unconstitutional, and now Democrats are suing over an unconstitutional EO to be followed regardless.

With all due respect, there are Christian answers for climate and weather. It has been written that God established laws and principles to govern nature, but God remains sovereign over the universe.

The directives given by St.Paul in Romans13, especially Verses1-7, “SubmissionToAuthorities,” make clear that God expects believers to obey government laws—except when government laws demand disobeying God’s commands. As St.Paul wrote, there is no authority except from God, so resisting governing authorities resists what God has appointed and will incur judgment. Illegal immigration is violating this country’s immigration laws and God’s expectation of obedience to laws. It may do well for the pope,politicians,mainstream media,GOPe, and Never-Trumpers to realize their scheming, scorn, and willful resistance to President Trump is scorning what God has put in place. God selects heads of nations.

Come clean now....the Marxists have taken hold of the Vatican and your faith, though pure as the wind driven snow, cannot change this sorry state of affairs.

And, yes, I do not worry for the physical health and welfare of his Ex-Holiness but only use this as an allegory for Holy Mother, the Church, itself.

A team of four current and former NFL players is lobbying commissioner Roger Goodell to engage the league in fighting for the cause of social justice, even asking him to formally designate November as activism awareness month. Current players Michael Bennett (Seattle Seahawks), Torrey Smith (Philadelphia Eagles), and Malcolm Jenkins (Philadelphia Eagles), along with former player Anquan Boldin, sent Goodell and another executive a 2,800-word memorandum in August requesting the league invest significant resources in the cause. The memo, available in full here, is specific and thoughtful, but its requests would almost certainly prove divisive among fans, many of whom are

Left-wing writers are taking the victim narrative to a new level this week, decrying “straight black men” as the “white people of black people.” In a column for The Root´s “Very Smart Brothas,” writer Damon Young accused straight black men of having the “type of privilege created for and protected by whiteness.” Black men, while victims of the white man´s oppressiveness, are the oppressors of the nonheterosexual/male black person. “We’re the ones for whom the first black president created an entire initiative to assist and uplift,” Young, a black man, wrote. “We’re the ones whose beatings and deaths at the hands

You’re probably already aware of the growing popularity of Bernie Sanders among the furthest left wing of the Democratic Party. (Snip) One of his most often discussed proposals lately is a single payer health care scheme involving “Medicare for All.” The big sticking point on that plan is the almost unimaginable price tag that goes along with it and the question of how he plans to pay for it. Sanders was largely mute on that subject until just recently. But now he’s gingerly stepped forward and begun to sketch out at least one way to raise part of the money.

Irving Berlin created music without formal training. And by himself. In 1918, while serving in the U.S. Army, he wrote the one and only “God Bless America.” When at first he couldn’t sell the song, he did what many songwriters do when such things happen: He stuck it in a drawer. Berlin dusted the tune off in 1938 as Adolf Hitler was rising to power — and tried to sell it again. This time, there was a buyer. Kate Smith recorded it, and the rest is history.

If you had plans for the weekend, a Christian numerologist says you won’t get to them because the world is about to end. David Meade, a self-proclaimed “researcher,” is predicting that a series of apocalyptic events will begin on Sept. 23 and, “a major part of the world will not be the same.” According to Meade, the mysterious rogue planet Nibiru, also known as Planet X, is on a collision course with Earth, which will bring world-ending tsunamis and earthquakes. The numerologist claims the dates of recent events like the Great American Solar Eclipse and Hurricane Harvey’s flooding of Texas were all marked in the Bible.
