Bishop McElroy, how is climate change deadlier than abortion?

Are ‘both abortion and the environment’ really ‘core life issues in Catholic teaching’? Abortion presents a problem for the Catholic left since it does not fit into its social justice agenda. It certainly involves social justice in the highest degree since it is a great injustice to deprive an innocent person of life. However, the

Pope Francis urges Catholic educators to teach inclusive integral ecology

by Courtney Mares Pope Francis called for an educational revolution Thursday, telling the Congregation for Catholic Education that more effort needs to be made to accelerate the inclusiveness of education. Ecology and fraternity are an integral part of education, Pope Francis told the Catholic education leaders ahead of the pope’s Global Compact on Education taking

“Dear Amazonia…” – The Match Is Only Postponed

The post-synodal Apostolic Exhortation of Pope Francis is published at last. Querida Amazonia is not a very long document: 111 paragraphs, divided into four sections which have the goal of expressing what “resonates” with the Pontiff after the experience of the synod, while not wanting to replace or simply repeat the Final Document of the

Disposal of green energy It’s not a green matter

capa

Anna Bono Everyone wants to avoid creating environmental problems. But good intentions is not enough if science kowtows to environmental ideology. For example: it is easy to talk about renewable energy, but the consequences of the disposal of obsolete wind turbine blades are a growing problem for the environment. This is why. Everyone believes that

An Introduction to the Terrifying Tribal World Being Proposed

Sometimes you hear and learn things while napping. In the relaxed ambiance of a resort, imagine a tourist enjoying a full-month vacation stretching out in a comfortable easy chair where he closes his eyes for a nap. He gently lets his memory wander in search of comforting memories that will be enticing to sleep. People’s

The Incas Sacrificed Beautiful Children to Pachamama

The work of archaeologists in Peru was reported at the end of September without any direct connection with the Amazon Synod.  It was a research activity that has particular relevance in view of the recent, so pervasive presence of Pachamama portrayals. The Pachamama, which literally means “World Mother,” rather than “Mother Earth,” was a deity

Interculturation: Only Drumming and Feathers?

Those who take the trouble of monitoring the Amazon Synod briefings end up with mixed feelings. All statements deal with “going out,” “openness,” “recognition,” “integral ecology,” etc. However, listening to some of the Synod Fathers, it seems that such expressions do not go beyond secondary concessions on liturgy and catechesis. Those proposing this “moderate” vision

The Synod on the Amazon, the spirit of Pachamama and the spirit of Elijah

What was the Amazon Synod and where will it lead us? The response to this question cannot certainly be limited to an analysis of the final document, voted on October 26, 2019. The Pan-Amazonian Synod is part of a process that should be considered in its progressive phases and context, even in the media, so

Why Catholics honoring Pachamama is a result of apostasy

How can it happen that idolatry enters the temple of God without a bad conscience, but rather with a bold rejoicing? Statuettes, which were eventually and officially identified as “Pachamama” idols, were not only the focus of a loud media hype for being rightly thrown into the Tiber, but became the symbol and the cipher

Coincidence? After Synod, scientists demand population control because of ‘climate emergency’

11,000 scientists have signed onto an article declaring that “the world population must be stabilized—and, ideally, gradually reduced,” because a “climate emergency” threatens “the fate of humanity.” Written by the Alliance of World Scientists and full of alarmist, apocalyptic language, the article was published today in BioScience. “Still increasing by roughly 80 million people per
