This just in from the AP: NAIROBI, Kenya  -- Pope Francis warned Thursday that it would be "catastrophic" for world leaders to let special interest groups get in the way of a global agreement to curb fossil fuel emissions as he brought his environmental message to the heart of Africa on the eve of make-or-break climate change talks in Paris.Francis issued the pointed warning in a speech to the U.N.'s regional office here after celebrating his first public Mass on the continent: A joyous, rain-soaked ceremony before 300,000 faithful that saw the Argentine pope being serenaded by ululating Swahili singers, swaying nuns, Maasai tribesmen and dancing children dressed in the colors of Kenya's flag.

Francis has made ecological concerns a hallmark of his nearly 3-year-old papacy...blah, blah, blah.  Read More Here

REMNANT COMMENT: Really?!  With ISIS conducting regular target practice on Europeans; tens of thousands of homeless refugees abandoning Syria; Christians being beheaded on the nightly news; Christianity disappearing completely from the Middle East; millions of babies aborted by their mothers every year; Chicago, Minneapolis, Baltimore, Ferguson working to enshrine anarchy in their streets; cultural Satanists feasting on the souls of our kids in pop culture; a massive crisis in the Catholic priesthood--- it's  the climate that keeps him pacing the floors of  the Domus Sanctae Marthae at night?

Honestly, what is wrong with this man? We must pray for him, for he seems to have lost any sense of real-time understanding of his responsibilities--not as life coach or social engineer or climatologist--BUT AS VICAR OF CHRIST and SUCCESSOR OF ST. PETER.

It's almost as if the man is suffering from dementia. Perhaps he is. Pray for him.

In the meantime, God help us, our children and the whole world if Peter doesn't wake up soon...or step down.
