Catholic church ‘a climate change sinner’

Forgive me for I have emitted

THE Catholic Church has confessed it is one of the biggest carbon emission sinners in Australia

Via The Daily Telegraph, July 18, 2009

Catholic Earthcare, the organisation set up in 2002 by bishops to advise the church on environmental issues, admitted the Australian Catholic church has a carbon footprint dwarfing other major organisations.

Ms Redmond says the decision to analyse the church’s carbon emissions using high-tech new tools developed by CarbonSystems, a private firm which helps organisations reduce carbon output, would lead to a reduction of the church’s footprint.

The move was backed yesterday by former US vice-president and environmental campaigner Al Gore who met Prime Minister Kevin Rudd in Sydney this week.

“The availability of this new tool for measuring our impact on the environment will allow us to measure and manage, to help us be good stewards in caring for God’s creation,” Mr Gore said.

So mad!

This secular religion (?) isn’t probably worse than other religions. Of course we shall think about the environment (I do sheck science and reinforced tempearature increase doesn’t exist = dangerous AGW dead), but this irrational movement suggesting environmental and economical damaging things. Are we seeing socialists, and capitalists who sell the rope in which they will be hanged.

I just found this …not Gore but temperature controlling Popama, at Minnesotans For Global Warming.

Eric Hoffer, 1951 – “The True Believer – Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements”
P.11
“When hopes and dreams are loose in the streets, it is well for the timid to lock doors , shutter windows and lie low until the wrath has passed. For there is often a monstrous incongruity between the hopes, however noble and tender, and the actions that follows them. It is as if ivied maidens and garlanded youths were to herald the four horsemen of the apocalypse.
And p.12
“People who see their lives as irremediably spoiled cannot find a worth-while purpose in self-advancement…Their innermost craving is for a new life – a rebirth – or failing this, a chance to acquire new elements of pride, confidence, hope, a sense of purpose and worth by an identification with a holy cause. An active mass movement offers them opportunities for both…” [ Is this Mr. Gore?]
and P. 13
“ It is true that in the early adherents of a mass movement there are also adventurers who join in the hope that that the movement will give a spin to their wheel of fortune and whirl them to fame and power.”
And

Eric Hoffer, 1979 – “Before the Sabbath”
p. 7
“ I am curious about Pechorin, a Russian intellectual of the mid-nineteenth century who wrote a poem on “How sweet it is to hate one’s native land and eagerly await its annihilation.”

This is so silly. Exactly how does the Catholic Church contribute to “global warming”? Is it because of the candles?
Seriously the world has gone mad. Future generations will be laughing at us.

Where is the hope or faith in global warming?
Now the end of the world will come in 2019 do to global warming!
Mother earth and other gods, are in there philosophy.

Faith and hope, is in the first commandment of God.
I say to you, have faith of a child, in the first command of God.
