The Pope on immigrants, climate science and terrorism
Good article on the Pope's letter to grassroots organizations and social movements meeting this week in California. Therein he once again criticized the dehumanizing forces of neoliberal capitalism. He reiterates that a Christian doesn't turn away a neighbor but helps him, whether within our community or from without our borders. He also emphasized that terrorism is not associated with any one religion, so to do so is to empower terrorists of all stripes. Finally he said we must recognize climate science to nurture the earthy source of our sustenance. To do otherwise is suicide.
