Symposium examines Pope Benedict’s teaching on ecology

Catholic World News - November 09, 2012

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Catholic University of America’s Institute for Policy Research and Catholic Studies, and the Catholic Coalition on Climate Change are cosponsoring a symposium at Catholic University entitled “A Catholic Consultation on Environmental Justice and Climate Change: Assessing Pope Benedict XVI's Ecological Vision for the Catholic Church in the United States.”

“Pope Benedict has consistently drawn attention to these issues and urges all to take moral responsibility to reduce our environmental impact and our carbon footprint,” said Bishop Stephen Blaire of Stockton. “This symposium is an important step in guiding our Catholic response to these challenges.”

    We've just had a disastrous election in which a majority of Catholics voted for the strongly pro-abortion candidate, in which three states have endorsed sodomy, and as a result of which the Supreme Court will be unable to correct Roe v. Wade for decades, and you are telling us that the USCCB is annoucing a program on climate change ?? This is a joke, right ??
