Holy Land's religious leaders reach agreement-- on climate change

Catholic World News - July 22, 2011

In a rare sign of accord, Christian, Jewish, and Muslim leaders in the Holy Land will unite behind a call for action on climate change, Vatican Insider reports.

The "Holy Land Declaration on Climate Change" will be launched on July 25 in Jerusalem, with endorsements from prominent leaders of each of the three monotheistic faiths.

    How excellent! They've all found a religion on which they can agree.

    The Church has been criticized, wrongfully so, for its handling of Galileo all those years ago, with "scientists" claiming that the Church was pitting faith against reason. What will today's "scientists" fall back position be when they're finally forced to admit the fraud of global warming/climate change, and be stuck on the same side as the Church? Frankly, I thought Church leaders were smart enough to not be taken in by this fraud.

    LOL, as they say. The leaders of the three religions can agree on something about which they know nothing and over which they have absolutely no control, while their people go right on killing each other.
