Pope Francis has a new vision for the Catholic Church.
He’s taken radical actions to turn it into just another Social Justice Warrior organization.
And these leftist Catholic groups can’t get enough of his new crusades.
Pope Francis has long advocated for stopping climate change.
In fact, he called climate change “a global problem with grave implications: environmental, social, economic, political and for the distribution of goods.”
And sadly, he’s not alone in his support for radical leftist political causes.
The leaders of 19 Catholic organizations just signed an “urgent appeal” against climate change.
The organizations include the Center of Concern, based in the United States, among others.
Every signing organization is a member of Coopération Internationale pour le Développement et la Solidarité (CIDSE), an international alliance of Catholic development agencies based in Brussels.
The Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano reported Sunday that the 19 agencies work in over 120 countries around the globe to promote social justice. The groups have launched their climate appeal in response to the latest report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the newspaper said.
The Catholic development organizations have seconded the IPCC’s demands for radical changes in behavior by western nations.
Governments “must absolutely and swiftly set themselves more ambitious goals: the reality is that we are on a warming path of 3.5 degrees or more, so there is a huge gap from the 1.5 degree target set at Paris,” their appeal states.
“Now more than ever we need leaders to recognize and take action to curb our current trajectory of greenhouse gas emissions,” it reads. “It is a moral imperative in the face of the dramatic risks for people and the planet, risks that unfortunately are already a reality for the populations of the most vulnerable countries.”
Despite the moral certainty of certain Catholic agencies, not everyone is persuaded of the accuracy of the IPCC’s climate predictions.
Last week, celebrated atmospheric physicist and MIT professor emeritus Richard Lindzen, stated that current climate projections are not only deeply flawed, but also ideologically driven.
Pope Francis heartily approves.
He has also scolded oil companies for using natural gas.
This is just one of the SJW crusades waged by the Pope.
He’s also expressed support for homosexuality and is once reported to have told a gay man, “God made you like this.”
And, in April, a French priest claimed Pope Francis approved of his marrying of same-sex couples.
But there’s one cause Pope Francis has kicked to the curb.
He’s so busy fighting SJW battles that he’s not lifted a finger to stop abortion.
When Irish Catholics fought to keep Amendment 8 of their Constitution from being overturned by Amendment 36, the Pope was silent.
Ireland wound up passing the amendment to repeal the abortion ban and Pope Francis said nothing.
Should the Catholic Church call a convention to remove Pope Francis from the chair?
