Parishes, Catholic schools urged to show film on climate change

August 16, 2012

The Catholic Coalition on Climate Change “and our partners,” which include the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Catholic Relief Services, and Catholic Charities USA, are inviting Catholic parishes, colleges, and schools to show Sun Come Up on or before October 4, the feast of St. Francis of Assisi.

The Oscar-nominated documentary, according to its web site, “shows the human face of climate change. The film follows the relocation of the Carteret Islanders, a community living on a remote island chain in the South Pacific Ocean, and now, some of the world’s first environmental refugees.”

    Three "Catholic" organizations which have lost all credibility promote a dubious "scientific" program.

    I'm sure the "Catholic" schools will be only too happy to take the time to show the documentary on climate change urged on them by the USCCB/CRS/CC. They are more interested in ecology/environmentalism/climate change/global warming and every liberal view than they are in teaching the Catholic Faith and Traditions. Teachers and principals are sorely ignorant, for the most part, of the Catholic Church and Her teachings and might as well be govt.-sponsored schools.

    I think the worlds first "environmental refugees" were the Vikings when they abandoned Greenland many hundreds of years ago.
