Papal Climate Encyclical

Ken McMurtrie reblogged this on The GOLDEN RULE and commented:

This article has so many important messages that need publicizing. Perhaps this is best highlighted by the following extracts:

"The latest Encyclical by Pope Francis is a revolutionary document in which it appears Pope Francis decided that overpopulation is a bigger problem than Church doctrine, especially when the increased population is industrialized, developed and prosperous. These are exactly the positions underlying the goals of the UN Agenda 21, the White House, and most other nations. Like them, the Encyclical uses global warming as a front for a political agenda. .........." "These actions explain Wirth’s truncated comment discussed earlier in which the last phrase shows global warming was just a vehicle for the greater objective of population control. "

So, for those interested in facts and truths, this is an enlightening article. Another dimension in the debate about all the issues of global warming, the Church view and its attempt to influence the public. (Not because man is "warming the planet dangerously", but because overpopulation is counterproductive to the future home comforts of the rich"). Proof that the alarmist agenda is the major issue, regardless of scientific facts. [Bold emphasis above, mine).
