Vatican supports FAO work toward food security

Catholic World News - June 19, 2013

The Vatican representative to the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has strongly endorsed the organization’s work to provide secure food supplies for all the world’s peoples.

Archbishop Luigi Travaglino told an FAO conference in Rome that the Vatican especially favors programs to support framing in developing nations, and making resources available to strengthen agriculture, forestry, and fisheries. He said: “It appears to us that the approach of sustainability that is linked to the human person can help give meaning to the responsibility that each of us has towards future generations.”

    Someone needs to explain to the Vatican and the Cardinals and the Bishops that money is fungible, and every contribution given to support quasi-good programs like the UN's FAO project is money that the UN can divert to one of its many evil programs, like those that teach contraception and abortion.
