    Some wishy-washy bullshit about the environment that they'll never back up with money and lawyers the way they do restricting abortion access, depriving gay and trans people of their rights, and covering up child abuse and murder. :async:

    Climate change is real and a problem, and its impact is being disproportionately borne by the poor, and that is a problem too.

    Basically, three of the the top Christian leaders in the world said something that Jesus would have approved of, which means a whole bunch of American "Christians" are about to start shrieking in outrage and denouncing them.

    This. I read the first couple paragraphs, but when the sermon started, I fell asleep. But, basically, the same shit I've been saying since I was six years old. No idea why it's taken grown men so long to realize it.

    The Catholic Church alone has enough money and power to wipe out poverty. But they don't.

    I wonder why. :chris:

    I guess that's one way to deflect against the Church's rampant sexual assault of children.

    Still, that's nice that all three came together for a joint statement as important as this.

    Back in 2009 Sarah Silverman suggested the Catholic church sell Vatican City and use the money to end world hunger, the Catholics claimed such a suggestion was basically a hate crime. :jesus:
