Catholic Climate Change

Mixing religion with politics is one thing. Mixing religion with science is another.

The Pope’s landmark Encyclical on global stewardship was leaked ahead of schedule and states that the major contributor to global climate change is human activity. 

The Holy See calls for radical changes to the world's political and economic systems to address this issue plus many more concerning inequality and sustainability. 

Francis strongly emphasizes that the pervasive belief that God gave humans
power of dominion over the Earth to the point that we can destroy whatever we
choose, "is not a correct
interpretation of the Bible.
" Conservatives thinks he should stick to
theology and not concern himself with such weighty matters.

Yesterday on “The Savage Nation,” Michael Savage lit into Pope Francis over his encyclical on climate change, calling him “a danger to the world” who wants to impose “global tyranny.”

“The Pope is a Marxist,” Savage said. “He is a wolf in pope’s
clothing, he is an eco-wolf in pope’s clothing, he’s a stealth Marxist
in religious garb.”

Meanwhile, to the left: 

5 Key Things Pope Francis Says about Climate Change

“Pope Francis frames the reality of climate change in a way that we must consider if we are to protect our environment for future generations, future economic development, and future progress. It is a moral imperative to act as a good steward of the environment and the gifts we have been given. I thank the Pope and I hope his encyclical will ring true with all of us, including those that deny climate change both in Congress and around the world.” – Congressman Paul Tonko (NY-20)

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
