Pope moves off the Rock.

With Pope Francis' latest encyclical, he is moving off the rock and onto the sand.  His authority rested on apostolic succession, the words of Christ and the written scriptures.  (You shall be called Peter and upon this rock I shall build my church....Feed my sheep...My Kingdom is not of this world).  Now he is turning his back on the distinctives of faith and leaning on the authority of popular science.  This can lead to no good.  Instead of calling for redemption, he is arguing for transfers of earthly wealth through government bodies as do all good communists and their fellow travelers. How can a pope be occupied with fixing climate and increasing Caesar's dominion when the Bible is clear that sin  is the core problem and a unique path of redemption through Christ is the only cure?

I don't personally believe those doctrines but I know what those scriptures say.  Basing arguments on a political body like the IPCC instead of the words of Christ is a fools game and will profoundly undermine the authority of the catholic church.  And bring on state taxation of their properties, too.

  1. I want to know how many solar panels and windmills are going to be attached to church roof tops - can you imagine St. Peter's with a barrage of windmills twirling madly in the wind - chopping pigeons to pieces. lol
