Pope Benedict Shill for Enviro-Communists

From the AP:

SYDNEY, Australia (AP) — The world’s natural resources are being squandered in the pursuit of “insatiable consumption,” Pope Benedict XVI said Thursday in a speech urging followers to care more for the environment and reconnect with the principle of peace.

Benedict, speaking to more than 200,000 pilgrims gathered for the Roman Catholic church’s youth festival, expanded on a theme that has led him to be dubbed “the green pope.” The crowd, massed on a disused wharf in Australia’s largest city, regularly erupted in cheers that gave the event the feel of a sporting event.

Gee, Mr Pope, never realized you were so plugged in to the science thing. You must have done a lot of research on this stuff.

Types of “poison” are afflicting the world’s social environment, he said, such as substance abuse, along with the exaltation of violence and sexual degradation, for which he blamed television and the Internet.

Or could it be that you’re just “green” enough to use it as a vehicle to push your own agenda…just like everyone else?

    A fair cop, however, unlike nearly all other persons of influence, he seems still to recognize that his only legitimate power is persuasion. And he’s still the only major living religious figure who is forthrightly against the Iraq War and imperial war in general.

    True that. Until the pope is able to exact coercion against me (or, as in the case of Bono, to use my government as a proxy to do it), I will chalk this up to an amusing anecdote.
