Progressives find religion in Papal climate change statement

Brian LilleyRebel Co-Founder

Progressive politicians love to tell us about the separation of Church and state in Canada.

But Thursday they, and the left wing media, were falling all over themselves to sing the praises of Pope Francis on global warming. I call them out on it.

Anne, with all due respect, the pulpit has been politicized for several decades. The fact that you agree with the liberal screed that masquerades as a religious sermon does not change that fact. The main stream religions have been preaching their form of socialism for a long time and the fact that you cannot see it says more about you than you probably want us to hear. Google ‘Politicizing The Pulpit’ for an overview of what is destroying the popular Christian churches.

Jimmy, you are so quick to insult the people that post here, but for all your blubber and bluster you have never yet provided a descent argument using logic, facts and evidence to back up your position on anything.

You are so indoctrinated by the left wing media that you cannot provide reasons for believing what you believe. You have just fallen for it all, hook line and sinker.

I am still waiting for you to post what type of “doctor” you are. My guess is that you really are not one. You post comments that indicate a lower level of education.

Peter Babich;
Interesting read from that link.
Translation: I’m not Catholic, I read lots of ‘new’ stuff in the article, and I have to cogitate upon it…

Frankly I have to laugh at all the misperceptions I read in some of the comments. First, True North, politics are not being preached from the pulpit, morality issues are like, life issues, chastity, abortion, marriage, euthanasia, dignity of the human person etc. Also, the Pope, has been misinterpreted, misunderstood and misjudged, much like Jesus in His time. Secular media picks out pinpoints to pounce on and exaggerates them. So far as climate change goes, in my opinion, and from what climatologists say, what’s happening is people are confusing climate change with pollution and the worst pollution problem is in China and India. Western countries have advanced technology and are continuing to improve so much so we are almost pollution free. I believe the Pope is concerned about the poor and the filthy conditions in the third world countries and that’s where he’s coming from, because they have a lot of work to do regarding air and water pollution.

This Pope is an enabler for the Anti – Christ. Trudope, making an issue of abortion is a hypocrite given Canada really has no laws on the issue! He’s simply trolling for votes with the regressive progressive crowd and the feminists.

Thanks for proving my point.
commented 2015-06-19 14:03:05 -0400
Jimmy,Wow, if that isn’t the pot calling the kettle black. Listen you guys, this isn’t all the popes work. He has advisors feeding him rotten information who are hell bent on destroying the faith. As hard as it seems, we need not concern ourselves with worldly things.

It really is scary how spectacularly stupid conservatives can be and how content they are with just being ignorant.

Dan – I believe that we are in the end times, and I am praying for those who have been blinded by this world wide deceit by Satan, including my own children. As George Orwell so eloquently stated, “In times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.” Well this is certainly proving to be true. I keep dwelling on what Jesus said, that he has over come the world. All my instincts are telling me that this pope is a wolf in sheep’s clothing!
commented 2015-06-19 11:32:15 -0400
This is all getting very, very strange.
It’s easy to see why so many today think we could be in the End Times – believer or non – given the increasing parallels of what is actually going on today, to the prophecy in the Bible.
Then there’s Saint Malachy’s Prophecy of the Popes.
The unprecedented ‘resignation’ of the last Pope.
The unusual and extreme-left political leanings (Marxist – One Worlder?) and expression of that political agenda, from the current Pope.
The talk about the Pope being either The Anti-Christ or The False Prophet (The Beast).
When I look out on the world of man today, I see a cess pool, a steaming rot of society, peopled by those led astray by their own desires of the flesh and other human weakness and by the Great Deceiver and his minions and acolytes spreading his cancer. It seems to be an unstoppable juggernaut at this point.
What’s a man to think?
I guess I’ll just hang on tight and enjoy the ride as best I can…

Dianna Haw!!!! The Catholic Church has done more to aid the impoverished than any other organization in history. Get your head out of your butt and do some research

When scientists prove the climate has STOPPED changing, we can get worked up. Until then, warnings about the climate changing are equivalent to warnings that the Earth is rotating.
commented 2015-06-19 09:43:13 -0400
Blah! Blah! Blah! Speaking of the wealthy maybe the Catholic church could give some of their money to help !!!!!!

Hypocrisy for the socialists/marxists/liberals/communists is a hourly/daily affair.
The pope was likely paid a handsome sum, let’s call it a donation, to flap his gums. Money moves things. Nothing changes.

The real matter is what is the agenda/goal behind this? The pope is just the pawn who can read a statement.

Global warming (while I freeze my ass off this spring), now global climate change (wow, what an incredible grasp of the obvious) is just a front for bigger goobermint taxes – carbon taxes, greenshaft, cap and trade (go ahead and pick one). We can thank europe’s pending financial collapse for this as they scramble to manage their continent wide 30% unemployment (U25 is over 50%) – europe is desperate for MOAR TAXES. That’s why europe (oops, the UN) wants a global tax.

So once again, it’s all about the money. What’s more interesting is how the stupids (lots of Canadians fall into this group) get pulled into the fight BECAUSE OF WHAT THEY BELIEVE. It is easier to lead the stupids around by their nose when the stupids believe (no logic required) and the socialists/communists/liberals/marxists already know this and it’s why they keep doing it. Amazing how many stupid Canadians can’t see the formed agenda by the socialists/communists/liberals/marxists but then get all confused when they get fist rammed with higher taxes. Stupids.

So for all you stupids who are ginned up on climate whatever, do you feel like a mindless idiot yet? Well you should.

Now I’m going to bed. Check back later.
commented 2015-06-19 01:54:08 -0400
I’ll post world. I can’t find any nonbiased Canstats.
commented 2015-06-19 01:37:06 -0400
Jimmy, did you want World or Canadian stats? I’m just using Google to try to find a non-biased website. Hard to though, since most have an agenda of some manner… And I didn’t say YOU said anything about doomsday, but Suzuki and others like him have.
commented 2015-06-19 01:28:00 -0400

When did I mention anything about doomsday? But yes, I would be curious to see what source you use.
commented 2015-06-19 01:25:09 -0400
Jimmy, I believe the climate does change. Just not in the doomsday manner that gets portrayed. I can go find stats to back this up if you like.
commented 2015-06-19 00:57:17 -0400

The opposite of doing nothing. Even if you don’t believe in climate change, I am quite sure you are aware of what scientists and other people in the know are saying what we should be doing about climate change.
commented 2015-06-19 00:51:54 -0400
Maggie Thatcher had a B.Sc. in Science and an agenda. She started all this climate warming crap to put the coal mining unions out of business and promote nuclear (which she promote heavily). Now, we have Pope with about the same beginner expertise and an agenda. Great.
commented 2015-06-19 00:49:36 -0400
When I start hearing confessions, the Pope can start preaching about chemistry, astrophysics, thermodynamics, physics, palaeontology, meteorology, geology, fluid dynamics, statistics and chaos theory.

Until then, Pope, stick to your knitting.
commented 2015-06-19 00:37:57 -0400
Jimmy, let’s say you’re right. In your opinion, do enlighten us in what you believe has to be done to correct climate change?
commented 2015-06-19 00:36:51 -0400
The faithful. The Roman Catholics. The exclusive of all but Catholic elite. As opposed to the rest of us. Yawn. Talk about navel gazing. Kind of like denying the moon landing.
commented 2015-06-19 00:01:59 -0400
There has never been a separation of church and state – so this is nothing new. The difference is that THIS TIME, conservatives don’t like it. If The Pope thought climate change was bullshit and thankfully he is smart enough to know that it isn’t – conservatives would be lapping up his stance with pleasure.
commented 2015-06-18 23:50:07 -0400

You do know that The Pope studied science and chemistry right? I am quite sure he knows more than you do and feels compelled to you know, help the world by getting the word out there on climate change and hopefully diminish the morons that think it’s some made up liberal thing.
