VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis wants concrete action to combat the “emergency” of plastics littering seas and oceans.
Francis made the appeal in a message Saturday to galvanize Christians and others to work to save what he hails as the “marvelous,” God-given gift of the “great waters and all they contain.”
He said efforts to fight plastics litter must be waged “as if everything depended on us.”
By the way, this isn’t “evenly distributed” either. 95% of the plastic trash in the oceans source from either Africa or Asia. Only 5% sources from developed western nations — all of them combined.
But SatanFrancis didn’t mention that — on purpose.
Nor did he mention the filth in other areas of the human experience that accompanies that pollution. The offshoring of labor for the purpose of exploiting literal and effective slaves, for example, or the fact that said offshoring happens precisely because such pollution is allowed and even encouraged as a means to “control costs” and “be cheaper.”
Meanwhile SatanFrancis is ignoring the fact that the Catholic Church appears to have intentionally admitted homosexuals to the Priesthood despite continually teaching that being gay is “inherently disordered” and thus, under Canon, an absolute bar to same.
He knows damn well this was going on for decades as did his predecessors and instead of putting a stop to that crap he has continually put forward efforts to cover up the facts and outcomes, including rampant pedaresty.
And let’s not kid ourselves — the vast majority, in fact almost exclusively (~85% or so) of the victims of these assaults and abuses have been males of materially younger age than the person committing the abuse or assault. When said person has developed at least some secondary sexual characteristic but is below the age of consent that’s pedaresty (as opposed to “pedophilia” which is an attraction to someone who is prepubescent and thus has not yet reached the age of secondary sexual development.)
Since gays in general are a minority of the population was there not an intentionally abnormal distribution among priests, and were this a simple matter of “sexual frustration” brought about by the vow of celibacy the vast majority of victims would be girls.
They aren’t, which is proof positive that this is not about “adult sexual frustration” or any such thing.
It is about intentionally admitting gay men to vocational paths when the Church states their proclivities are “inherently disordered”, a disqualifying fact, yet the Church has been and continues to intentionally ignore that, conceal it, and, when it turns out that said person is a pedarest as well, they sweep it under the rug and protect said perpetrators instead of throwing everyone involved to the criminal justice system to be dealt with as they should be.
