The Secretary of State of the Vatican City State Cardinal Archishop Pietro Parolin before the United Nations has called for an “authentic cultural change.” Was he speaking of the moral apocalypse threatening Western (formerly Catholic) civilization? Was he speaking of the million children murdered by their own mothers in their own wombs each year in the United States alone? Was he speaking of the almost universal acceptance of contraception and the resulting sterilization of the Western world? Was he speaking of the rapid advance of sodomite marriage across the lands and countries that were once the upholders of Christian virtue? Was he speaking of the annihilation of the Catholic Faith across the planet, in large part assisted by its own clergy? Was he talking about the loss of tens if not hundreds of millions of souls?
No my friends he was not talking about any of this things. No, the issue that is cutting right to this successor of the apostles’ heart today is neither the slaughter of the innocents by their own mothers nor the social idiocy of men marrying men and women marrying women nor even the loss of so many souls; what really got Cardinal Parolin going is …climate change. Yes, this is thing which threatens us all …climate change. This is thing that requires an immense and ‘authentic’ change in our culture …climate change.
Stop trying to placate the world my dear Cardinal. They will not love you for it. In fact they will despise you all the more.
