[Pope Francis is] saying, "Why don't we all discuss this? Why don't we all come to the table, and before we start eliminating other people from the discussion -- before denouncing them or even ridiculing them -- why don't we listen to them and see what they're saying and see where we really ought to be going as a human family?"Except that statement doesn't appear to be true. It seems that "eliminating other people from the discussion" is exactly what they're doing. French climate change skeptic Philippe de Larminat says he was denied a spot at April's summit sponsored by the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy of Sciences.
De Larminat has written a book arguing that the sun, and not human activity, is the primary cause of climate changeDoesn't quite agree with the Cardinal's talking points, does it? It's more like this:
"They did not want to hear an off note," de Larminat told the paper.
It looks to me like good old Latin American Liberation Theology, think Jeremiah Wright, is mainstream in the Catholic Church these days.
