“Pope Francis’s edict on climate change will anger deniers and US churches,” says left-wing Guardian of England, quoting him:
“In recent months, the pope has argued for a radical new financial and economic system to avoid human inequality and ecological devastation. In October he told a meeting of Latin American and Asian landless peasants and other social movements: “An economic system centred on the god of money needs to plunder nature to sustain the frenetic rhythm of consumption that is inherent to it.”
What does he have in mind? something of government control? He’s not big on political freedom, I’d say.
But it’s never been a priority for the Vatican, which has proven it can live with all sorts of autocracies.
