Obama calls for world leaders to heed Pope Francis’s message
Today from the Catholic Herald: "The US president hails the Pope's intervention as 'clear and powerful' The President of the United States has said he wants fellow world leaders to reflect on Pope Francis’s encyclical. Laudato Si’, published yesterday, called for humanity to change its approach to the environment and the way it judged progress. Barack Obama spoke of the responsibility that his own job title brings in leading the way towards a change in global environmental policy.

“I welcome His Holiness Pope Francis’s encyclical, and deeply admire the Pope’s decision to make the case – clearly, powerfully, and with the full moral authority of his position – for action on global climate change. As we prepare for global climate negotiations in Paris this December, it is my hope that all world leaders and all God’s children will reflect on Pope Francis’s call to come together to care for our common home.

“We have a profound responsibility to protect our children, and our children’s children, from the damaging impacts of climate change.” READ MORE HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: Okay, so the Pope has given us an encyclical that has won the wild and unconditional praise of a who's who list of one-worlders, pro-aborts and sustainable development types-- everyone from Al Gore to Jeffrey Sachs to United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon. And now the most pro-abortion president in U.S. history says we all need to carefully reflect on the encyclical, which President Obama "deeply admires".

Everybody okay with this? The Remnant is just being reactionary and paranoid in its criticisms of Laudato Si, right? Really? Holy cow!
