A Take on the Pope’s Perspective on the Climate and Beyond

The Pope appears to be a one world government advocate and anti-capitalist and his views may sneak into Ctholic teachings.

The Council on Foreign Relations interviewed Mary Evelyn Tucker and John Grim, co-directors, The Forum on Religion and Ecology at Yale University, on the Pope's Laudato Si.

From the interview:
In this encyclical, Pope Francis gives expression...[that] A new global solidarity is a key value to direct our search for the common good.---

I see a fundamental resistance in Pope Francis's thinking to unbridled market capitalism that reduces everything to a commodity that is traded for profit.
While discussions about social justice have been robust in Catholic and Christian contexts, this encyclical marks the first time social and environmental concerns are brought together. This perspective of eco-justice has traction with other Christian communities as well as non-Christian religions.
[I]n Catholic seminaries will the curriculum for the training of priests actually be affected?  Will Catholic priests learn how to think theologically about integral ecology and Catholic doctrines?


  1. I know a fine seminarian and I gave him the The Christian Response to Poverty by James Sadowsky, S.J. (and friend of Murray Rothbard and David Gordon). I hope that will counteract bad influences he'll be exposed to.

    and you'll find Fr. Sadowsky's essays.

  2. The only thing the pope is concerned with is his own power and the power of the papacy.

    Nothing more.

  3. Interesting that Pope Francis has views more biblically in line with what one would expect from the Antichrist.
