By his own logic then the only thing Jeb is allowed to discuss is how to best life as a bum hole.

I've never seen Conservatives so scared of the opinions of a religious person before. It's kind of interesting to watch.


I've never seen liberals so willing to use the words of a religious leader to promote their agenda. It's kind of interesting to watch.

Especially when he ties in preserving life in the womb to his encyclical.


“Since everything is interrelated, concern for the protection of nature is also incompatible with the justification of abortion,” the encyclical says. “How can we genuinely teach the importance of concern for other vulnerable beings, however troublesome or inconvenient they may be, if we fail to protect a human embryo, even when its presence is uncomfortable and creates difficulties?”

I didn't know AGW was only a political issue. Are you sure it is only an American issue at that?



More like a first world problem.

Global Warming effects me directly. I have a right to an opinion and to research it and to speak out about it. I do it here but also in real life with those I associate with. I also have views on religion based on my life experience and my extensive reading on the subject. But using your logic, I'm not qualified to speak about it, only a priest or someone who went to seminary school for years is.

Thats' what was wrong in and before the middle ages. Only holy men were allowed to talk about God and look where that got us.

On issues that effect us, we ARE qualified to speak about them. Climate Change and Man's impact on the Climate should be something the Pope talks about.


Actions taken to mitigate so-called "man made climate change" affect me and my family directly. More expensive energy bills, EPA regulations, subsidies to so-called 'green energy.' These are issue that affect us all, and we have a right to point them out as worthless and their negative impact on the next generation.

As a Christian,both the Pope and I believe that God created this planet of ours and that we should take care of it.That's all he is really saying,and I agree.


Agreed. But that is a personal choice, like the rest of Christianity. It is not 'Caesar's'

First Amendment


End of discussion.

Why is this topic on fours pages?


Because the normally anti-religions liberals think that the Pope said something that matters. Wacky, I know.

By Bush's own logic he shouldn't be allowed to talk about anything but how to inherit wealth and privilege without doing anything to earn it.

Hilarious. So you want us to embrace what scientists have to say on the matter, then? No of course not. Deniers of global warming, evolution, etc, obviously don't want us to listen to the scientists. Hence the hilarity of such a statement.

Jeb Bush's education makes him qualified to be a Spanish speaking tennis instructor.

How anybody could get behind a guy like that to hold the keys to the largest stockpile of nuclear weapons on the planet is beyond my ability to comprehend, as my current understanding of reality permits.

a reply to: Krazysh0t >>> They forced Pope Benedict to resign his post and then picked this bozo to replace him. Why? He's from South America and that gives him creds to talk about the need to allow illegal immigrants to go where they please and shame on us for not being merciful and kind to them even as our own situation worsens. Then too he's got something of a science background and now he's an expert to push the global warming agenda, the very same agenda Obama was told he had to push. Global warming is a money making scam and most everybody knows it. Oh they'll gut our economies in the developed countries and ship cheap manufacturing jobs overseas to third world countries and make trillions doing it. Sorry. This " Pope" seems like a nice guy but he's as big a phony and an empty suit as Obama. He's even worse. Obama is a politician so you expect him to be a lair and a thief. Not the Pope. We've got impostors at the very top in government and religion.

I really don't like to use the term shill, but the Pope proves to be a shill for the UN Agenda 21 One World Socialist Totalitarian Utopia NWO govt and World Council of Churches ... not that I plan on voting for Jeb or anything....

Hey, if Dyson isn't qualified to dissent because he is a physicist and not in a climate related discipline than a Pope who has a mere master's in chemistry isn't qualified to discuss it either.

Hey, since the person who posted this isn't either a politican, a major theological figure, or a scientist, they probably shouldn't have posted this thread.

We could play this game all day. In fact, neither you nor I should likely be commenting on it. We aren't qualified to have an opinion either.

When they want our opinion, they'll tell us what it should be.

Do you really want to live in that world? I don't, so I'll continue to look at the numbers for myself and form my own opinions despite not being a politician, a major theological figure or a scientist.

That sounds like an entirely logical statement for Jeb Bush to make. The pope shouldn't discuss climate change because he's not a scientist. I agree with 100% thumbs up.

LOL That's like saying that none of us should discuss crime because we're not cops, illnesses, even our own, because we're not doctors, Cars because we're not mechanics or engineers, Clothes because we're not fashion designers, movies because we're not actors etc. Let's not go down that path.

The pope is right on. All leaders no matter what they're leading should discuss topics that are important for their followers. What's more important than earth? We all live here.

That's a good point. I really don't care what the Pope's opinion on climate change is to be honest. I just wrote this thread to point out the irony on display here. I still only really care about the evidence.

But there's the rub or the problem, not taking action on it has a huge negative impact on my life, like making my tax dollars go to subsidize oil companies...I don't want that. Like less fuel efficient cars...I don't want that. Making the law harder for me to get solar energy...I don't want that. Not doing any drought or sea level rise mitigation causing immigration from one part of USA to my part of the usa...I don't want that. More pollution...I don't want that. You see that there are two sides to the coin. I'm happy that you're comfortable doing nothing but it's having a negative impact on me and my family and I'm glad the pope is speaking out on this issue as he should be doing.
