The Church knows that honest debate must be encouraged among experts.”~Laudato Si, Pope Francis

Throughout Laudato Si, Pope Francis states that he is open to a debate and a dialogue on the environmental issues raised in the encyclical. In fact, nearly 21 times in the body of the encyclical, Francis urges for dialogue among religions, ideologies and people. The Pope also calls for a debate on the environment solutions some 12 times in the encyclical. Although he says he wants contrary opinions debated and presented, is that the reality at the Vatican and this papacy.

The very language of the encyclical exposes the real intent of the Vatican. In the first sentence of section 14 of the encyclical, the Pope calls for a “new dialogue” a “conversation” about the environmental challenges. Yet, by the end of that very same paragraph, the Pontiff arrives at a completely contrary position:

As a member of the Heartland Institute delegation that travelled to Rome to urge the Vatican to reconsider its embrace and adoption of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development radical agenda, Pope Francis’ Laudato Si Encyclical validates my greatest fears.

Throughout the last two years, in preparation for the encyclical rollout, the Vatican has relied solely upon global warming alarmists in its rush to judgment to meet the UN 2015 Sustainable Development Goals’ timetable.   Additionally, during this process, the Vatican consulted primarily with and continues to rely upon radical population control proponents who exploit discredited climate change science to justify their extremist population reduction policies under the nuanced UN ‘reproductive sexual health’ rubric.
