Pope Frank: Game Changer!
June 20, 2015 2:05 AM

Yowza, PF:

Pope Francis on Thursday called for a radical transformation of politics, economics and individual lifestyles to confront environmental degradation and climate change, blending a biting critique of consumerism and irresponsible development with a plea for swift and unified global action.

The vision that Francis outlined in a 184-page papal encyclical is sweeping in ambition and scope: He describes relentless exploitation and destruction of the environment and says apathy, the reckless pursuit of profits, excessive faith in technology and political shortsightedness are to blame.

The most vulnerable victims, he declares, are the world's poorest people, who are being dislocated and disregarded.

God Bless, This Pope!

Let's hope not too many Wingnut heads explode over this fundamental shift by The Vatican. Simply amazing...
