Pope Francis: ‘Defender of the Pagan Gaia Faith’

Pontificating from his window in a Vatican palazzo on Sunday, Pope Francis bypassed tens of thousands of pilgrims and tourists, to lavish with gushing praise a few hundred activists who had marched to St. Peter’s Square under the banner ‘One Earth, one family”.

Sunday marked the Feast Day of Saints Peter and Paul.


“I encourage the collaboration between persons and associations of different religions on behalf of an integral ecology,” Francis said, offering good wishes to young people discussing what he described as “the care of the common house.” (National Post, June 29, 2015)

“The marchers included Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus and others who had walked from near the French embassy to remind people of a key U.N. climate change conference in Paris in December.”

The tens of thousands of the faithful, who were in St. Peter’s Square for a papal blessing came from all over the world and included Muslims, Jews, Hindus and others, and differed by not being marching activists under an environmental banner. 

Because they weren’t marchers, under the ‘One Earth, one family” banner they came a far second in the Pope’s attention.

Nor can defenders possibly blame this one on inadvertent loss of meaning due to the translation of Italian into English.

Pope Francis should be brought in on the fact that the environmental movement genuflects not to God but to Gaia.

Sundays will never be the same
Save the Environment…from the Vatican
Our Creator already wrote the encyclical that counts
Climates and Pontiffs change, Christ never does

Why is Pope Francis ignoring the road to Damascus to travel along the road to bumper-sticker Catholicism?

“For Francis, efforts to preserve the environment are an excellent way to bring together secular and non-secular forces, and especially members of various religions. Love for the environment also expands his papal agenda of highlighting social justice issues like poverty.” (National Post)

“Bringing together secular and non-secular forces” should not rely wholly on preserving the environment. Ditto on the need for “collaboration between persons and associations of different religions on behalf of an integral ecology”.

Under the papacy of Francis the Catholic Church is turning from saving souls to saving the environment.

Addressing St. Peter’s Square throngs from his window in a Vatican palazzo is taking the easy way out in that effort. 

So is encouraging the collaboration between persons and associations of different religions on behalf of an integral ecology.

Saving souls is—or should be—a full-time job.  Read up on any number of saints who were martyred trying to perform that job.

Pope Francis has appointed the world’s top environmental leaders in his recent encyclical initiative.

Papal defenders offer the alibi of the pontiff’s not knowing who chosen papal encyclical presenter Professor John Schnellnhuber, is.

Schnellnhuber, founding director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, contends that the earth is “overpopulated by at least 6 billion people”.  That’s who.

“In a talk given to what’s described as the “failed” 2009 Copenhagen climate conference, reported in the New York Times, Schnellnhuber, who has advised German President Angela Merkel and is a visiting professor at Oxford, said of global warming: “In a very cynical way, it’s a triumph for science because at last we have stabilized something –- namely the estimates for the carrying capacity of the planet, namely below 1 billion people.” (Breitbart, June 12, 2015).

“Schnellnhuber is also author of what’s called the “two-degree target” that says governments must not allow the temperature to rise more than 2 degrees higher than at the start of the industrial revolution. Any higher, the theory holds, and much life on earth would either perish or be gravely harmed.

“To deal with climate issues, he has also called for an “Earth Constitution that would transcend the UN Charter” along with the creation of a “Global Council…elected by all the people on Earth” and a “Planetary Court..a transnational legal body open to appeals from everybody, especially with respect to violations of the Earth Constitution.”

“Make that the UN Charter, co-written by Canadian UN Poster Boy Maurice Strong and former Soviet Union leader Mikhail Gorbachev, the one absurdly transported in a gilded Ark of the Covenant knockoff as the appropriate receptacle for “The new Ten Commandments”  that no Pontiff has ever tried to do anything about. (Canada Free Press, June 15, 2015)

Next defenders of Pope Francis, ‘Defender of the Pagan Gaia Faith’, will be telling us he didn’t really know who Naomi Klein, Canadian author and environmentalist, known for her opposition to capitalism and corporate globalization, scheduled to join a Vatican committee that was formed to draw attention to a conference on the environment being held in Rome this week, really is.

“Klein’s most recent book, This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate, explores the relationship between economic powers and the environment. (National Post)

“The People and Planet First conference is organized by the Pontifical Council of Justice and Peace and by Catholic groups and will bring together Church leaders and scientists.

“In a recent encyclical about the environment, Pope Francis wrote passionately about the world’s moral duty to save the Earth and move away from business systems that pollute.

“He also noted how the poor often suffer the most from pollution and from other environmental damage in developing countries.”

Socialism does far more to make the poor suffer than capitalism.

From North America to the Vatican: While the Pope was leaning out of his palazzo window on Sunday, the White House was celebrating the Supreme Court’s legalization of same sex marriage in all 50 states, having flooded the White House with the colours of the gay rainbow flag on Friday night.

A radical societal change surely more worthy of papal attention than saving the environment.

Christians of all sects have had the wind knocked out of them in what they are calling one of the darkest days in history.

Meanwhile, the moss is not growing over the faithful but all over ‘Save the Environment’ Pope Francis.
