Earlier today, His Humbleness addressed “The International Conference Marking the 3rd Anniversary of Laudato Si’,” encouraging those in attendance to hear “the increasingly desperate cries of the earth and its poor” and to meet “the urgent need to respond to the Encyclical’s call for change, for an ecological conversion.”
A load of Bergoglian garbage, you say?
Well, yes, but it’s not his garbage, per se; Francis (as he likes to be called) is just the trash man du jour as he himself acknowledged later in the address when he gave credit to John Paul the Great Ecumenist who first issued that call back in 2001.
In context, the Polish pope said:
Unfortunately, if we scan the regions of our planet, we immediately see that humanity has disappointed God’s expectations. Man, especially in our time, has without hesitation devastated wooded plains and valleys, polluted waters, disfigured the earth’s habitat, made the air unbreathable, disturbed the hydrogeological and atmospheric systems, turned luxuriant areas into deserts and undertaken forms of unrestrained industrialization, degrading that “flowerbed” – to use an image from Dante Alighieri (Paradiso, XXII, 151) – which is the earth, our dwelling-place.
We must therefore encourage and support the “ecological conversion” which in recent decades has made humanity more sensitive to the catastrophe to which it has been heading.
Devastated… Disfigured… Unbreathable… Unrestrained… Catastrophe…
It’s always the same with these humanists and their earthbound causes; rallying the masses with a near endless flow of hyperbole in order to create a frenzied sense of urgency.
Even as John Paul II spoke, contrary to his claim that the environment was being devastated with neither restraint nor hesitation by the industrialized nations of the world, the same were investing in technological advances that would make more efficient use of the planet’s natural resources, lead to an improved quality of life for many of its poorest inhabitants, while also lowering humankind’s impact on “our dwelling-place.”
For example, 2001 was the very year that the first mass-produced hybrid automobile, the Toyota Prius, hit the marketplace.
As for the plight of the poor, one would think based on Francis’ constant drumbeat about income disparity and poverty that the trend is decidedly downward. Not so.
In a 2017 Op-Ed for New York Times, Nicholas Kristof, a columnist specializing in “human rights, women’s rights, health, and global affairs,” posed the following pop quiz:
On any given day, the number of people worldwide living in extreme poverty:
A.) Rises by 5,000, because of climate change, food shortages and endemic corruption.
B.) Stays about the same.
C.) Drops by 250,000.
We know how the Bergoglians would answer, but Kristof reveals:
Polls show that about 9 out of 10 Americans believe that global poverty has worsened or stayed the same. But in fact, the correct answer is C. Every day, an average of about a quarter-million people worldwide graduate from extreme poverty, according to World Bank figures.
This is the New York Times!
About that so-called “climate change” problem, Francis said in his address:
All governments should strive to honor the commitments made in Paris, in order to avoid the worst consequences of the climate crisis … We cannot afford to waste time.
Putting an ersatz religious spin on his eco-mania, he said:
Here we can think back on the call that Francis of Assisi received from the Lord in the little church of San Damiano: “Go and repair my house, which, as you can see, lies in ruins”. Today, the “common home” of our planet also needs urgently to be repaired and secured for a sustainable future.
In truth, as told by St. Bonaventure in a biography of St. Francis:
Francis began zealously to repair the church materially, although the principle intention of the words referred to that Church which Christ purchased with his own blood, as the Holy Spirit afterward made him realize.
Church, smurch… who needs it? Not Francis, who went on to invoke the “climate / environmental / ecological crisis” three more times in his brief address even though the cat’s well and truly out of the bag – there is no crisis.
Al Gore, the Nobel Prize winning purveyor of global warming hysteria, whose personal carbon footprint is the size of several small towns put together, is a laughingstock among all but the most deluded for his laundry list of failed predictions of environmental doom.
More noteworthy are the scientists whose voices will no longer be silenced; men like Richard Siegmund Lindzen, an atmospheric physicist known for his work in the dynamics of the atmosphere, atmospheric tides, and ozone photochemistry, who said in a recent interview:
The mostly non-scientist proponents of climate hysteria realize that distant forecasts of remote problems by inadequate models are unlikely to motivate people to shut down modern industrial society. They, therefore, attempt to claim that we are seeing the problems right now. Of course, the warming that has occurred over the past 200 years or so has been too small to have been a major factor. However, objective reality matters little when it comes to propaganda – where repetition can effectively counter reality.
The Bergoglians, however, are undeterred, and we were given a hint as to the reason when Jorge said, “All governments should strive to honor the commitments made in Paris…”
Their motives were made all the more clear when the Ringleader in Rome went on to say:
Along with states, local authorities, civil society, and economic and religious institutions can promote the culture and practice of an integral ecology.
States, authorities, religious institutions…
You see, eliminating poverty and caring for Mother Earth are not the real goals of conciliar madmen like Wojtyla, Bergoglio, and Ratzinger for that matter; those are but rallying cries used to stir the emotions of the ignorant and the faithless as a means toward attaining the ultimate prize – a one-world government that will have oversight over a one-world religion.

We know we are in Apocalyptic times: Our Lady gave Sr. Lucia hat understanding.
I’ve often thought that the Apocalypse Chapter 8 is a description of the ecological damage done to the world by Industrial Man (which cannot be denied by any sane individual):
6 And the seven angels, who had the seven trumpets, prepared themselves to sound the trumpet. 7 And the first angel sounded the trumpet, and there followed hail and fire, mingled with blood, and it was cast on the earth, and the third part of the earth was burnt up, and the third part of the trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up. 8 And the second angel sounded the trumpet: and as it were a great mountain, burning with fire, was cast into the sea, and the third part of the sea became blood: 9 And the third part of those creatures died, which had life in the sea, and the third part of the ships was destroyed. 10 And the third angel sounded the trumpet, and a great star fell from heaven, burning as it were a torch, and it fell on the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters: 11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood. And the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
Remember Chernobyl, anyone? In English, it means “Wormwood”.
I have also thought that Bergoglio’s jumping on this particular bandwagon is on a par with all the other post-Conciliar Church attempts to solve human problems solely by human means: dialogue, leftism, ‘integral humanism’, ‘justiz ‘n peas’, all that gig.
In that sense, my biggest problem with Bergoglian eco-leftism is not his concern for the earth that God has given to us – any fool can see that we all need to do what’s possible to keep it in good nick – but the fact that it tries to hold up or stop the plan that God Himself has foreseen for Mankind and showed to St. John in his great vision on Patmos 1,900-ish years ago.
Shouldn’t it be ‘His Humility’ by the way? His Humbleness sounds wrong. Modern usage perhaps.
Poor, poor mother earth. I feel so badly that I’m breathing your oxygen, which I don’t replace and eating your food, which I don’t grow. Forgive me, mother earth, I’ll try and be a better steward in the future and I promise to go to confession the first chance I get.
“A great orator of our time has said, ‘History is not over; it will begin in the valley of Josephat.’ Christian reason and the common assent of all nations thus bear witness that the world must end and that there will be a new order. This truth is also in conformity with science and observed facts.
It is a recognized principle, and a general law of nature, that everything subject to movement or decomposition, everything consumed by time or limited in extent, is liable to wear out and age, and, in the end, disappears and perishes. Science teaches us that no vital force, or created agent, has the power to deploy its energy beyond a limited duration, and that, by virtue of the creative law, the field of its activity is restricted within a given sphere whose boundary cannot be crossed. The most perfect and soundly built organisms could not be made to function indefinitely.
Not only living beings, such as animals and plants, but even minerals are subject to opposing forces of affinity or repulsion, and tend continuously to separate in order to form new groupings. Thus, the hardest rocks and granite undergo corrosion and weathering that, sooner or later, will bring them tumbling down. Stars are seen to extinguish and vanish in the firmament. Every movement, even that of the heavens, tends to become slower. Eminent astronomers have detected, in the sun and the stars, losses of heat and light, admittedly imperceptible, that nevertheless will not fail, after the passage of many centuries, to have a disastrous effect on our climate and seasons.
Be that as it may, it is certain that our earth no longer possesses the same fecundity or vegetative strength it had in the first ages of the human race. Just as the world had it’s youth, so there will come a time when the world will have its twilight, when it will hasten toward its evening and decline.
These are truths of observation and common sense that reason grasps easily, but Christianity alone has succeeded in demonstrating their certainty and excellence. “It is in this respect,” a Protestant thinker has said, “that Christian doctrine is quite distinct from philosophical doctrines. It affirms that a new existence awaits man after this life. An absolute requirement for the fulfillment of that existence is that nature, which has become obscure and impenetrable to man, should be explained and clarified in some future state, which will prove the harmony between visible and invisible things, the transient and the everlasting, matter and spirit. Only in the future, only with such an end to human existence, can the conscience of man find repose. For this hope we are indebted to Christ, whose promise permits us to expect, after the final crisis, a new earth and new heavens.’’
(The End Of The Present World, by Fr. Charles Arminjon)
I don’t know why he doesn’t just take his argument to the heads of corporations who pollute, why bother us with it? No one would debate we need to take care of our big blue marble. Who is he talking to! I believe he rails more against capitalism than pollution. He needs a concrete enemy.
I can’t take him at all. I don’t even want to talk about him anymore. In our lives he is irrelevant. He can say nothing whatsoever to get us back except to recant years 2013-2018 and amend from here on in.
He’s an angry, vindictive, Argentinian Marxist who is doing his best to blow up the faith and replace Christendom with Islam. Neither he, nor the Marxist Cardinals or bishops, have any relevance in our home or lives.
The hyperventilators told us that the Chernobyl area would be devoid of life for 30,000 years after the meltdown. Yet life is now flourishing there. Such examples could be endlessly multiplied. They’ve lost all credibility.

Yes, good post Evangeline.
I agree with you – he shouldn’t be targeting ordinary people. What can we do except stop using plastic bags or walking or cycling around more rather than use the car? It isn’t you or me who deforests the Amazon or pollutes rivers.
What I really despise about him apart from spouting heresies on a daily basis is the whole culture of mediocrity he brings with him: his record in Buenos Aires was woeful (wasn’t it something like 200 seminarians at the start of his time as Archbishop down to around 20 when he was elected Pope?); his gathering around himself of other failures – Madarigada for instance, who made his country the first in Latin America to have a Protestant majority; the other ‘Inner Cabinet’ Cardinals who are bloody useless.
If the Catholic Church were a company, it would have been swallowed up in a hostile takeover decades ago. The people at the top are useless; or are made useless by the disastrous ecumenism, disastrous New Mass and the indifference they engender in everybody.
I currently work in the Middle East. The temperature here at the moment is around 45c. Let him come here and witter on about the spiritual deadliness of using an air conditioner. Madness.
How about “His Grand Humility”? I think the contradiction there is fitting.
He has the gall to call for “economic conversion” when the only conversion that matters, to the OHC&A Church, he considers unnecessary and any attempts to fulfill the Great Commission he derides as “solemn nonsense.”
This might be one of the keys to open the box of the diabolical mind of the man who calls himself the Bishop of Rome:
Consider who he considers “the greatest theologian for today” – The nihilist Michel de Certeau. (Along with Immanuel Kant and Fr. Karl Rahner, S.J.)
Certeau was greatly influenced by Sigmund Freud and through the 1970s and 1980s he produced a string of works that demonstrated his interest in mysticism, phenomenology, and psyhoanalysis. He died in Paris, aged 60. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michel_de_Certeau)
These nihilist theologians who formed the man who calls himself the Bishop of Rome’s mind do more than simply deny that the Eucharist is the actual flesh and blood of Christ. They go much further because they consider that all the central truths of Christianity are about absence, emptiness and non-existence. For them, the focal event in Christianity is not the Incarnation, the crucifixion, or the resurrection of Christ, but the empty tomb. Accordingly, his beloved theologian Certeau considers the Eucharist a sign of “absence”.
Neither the predictability nor the inevitability of this devilish papal-jewel in the crown of diabolic disorientation lessens the pain of the heretical linkage: between the man who calls himself the Bishop of Rome’s theological gurus, his infamous debunking of biblical miracles underpinning Eucharistic doctrine, his scandalous comportment before a tabernacle or monstrance, and its logical endpoint — his complacent attitude to public adulterers receiving Holy Communion; since for him they are not sacrilegious but purely symbolic Communions. His theology of “absence” — the empty tomb and the faithless Certeauian quest for the missing body of Jesus — being the key to the complacency.
Basic nature plants etc always seem to make a comeback . It is always babies and children who suffer.
You are a despicable bigot, not a Catholic, and a SAD! beta male with tiny, tiny hands.
But even a blind (and evil) Nazi squirrel sometimes finds a nut.
In this case, you are 100% correct. Radiation is a nasty thing, but the idea that a meltdown creates a wasteland for (essentially) eternity is absurd. And when you take people out of the equation, radiation or not, animals and plants absolutely thrive.
I personally hope you move to the arena and sneak into the New Safe Confinement to fry your soy bacon and eggs on the remaining hot core each morning, as the world would be a better place without you.
But, in this very specific case, I must hold my nose and admit that you are correct.
To the worldlings, with whom he curries favour, Francis speaks of climate change, religious tolerance, chasing your dreams, diversity, immigration… anything and everything but Jesus.
That’s because that Vatican nutcases, especially Francis, have been inviting and listening to this guy >

His Holiness – His Humbleness. Might not be grammatically correct, but is very funny and effective.
A fake title for a fake Pope.
The term “humbleness” expresses the concept of fake humility.
Its funny how sedes are always accused of being at each others throats. Well Blunder and Al Jr are both non-sedes and they are always at each others throats even though they have a “pope.” But on this topic, I think we can all agree.

To (aka) Catholics, he is the “Great Humiliation”.
“…the other post-Conciliar Church attempts to solve human problems solely by human means. Very well put. And I immediately thought of the march in Chicago today (Saturday), closing down a major expressway, organized by Chicago priest Fr. Michael Pfleger, protesting gun violence, poor education, not enough resources (?) etc. Nothing will come of it, an exercise in virtue-signaling, and as you state, attempting “to solve human problems solely by human means.”
Hilary White coined the best tag so far, “Pope Humblebrag”. Fits him perfectly.
Thank you. What organization could continue when the CEO clearly dislikes the company goal and the way it operates? Whatever organization you had at the beginning you are not going to have at the end. This papacy has vindicated the Protestants, he has proven them right. He’s pope, he’s terrible, and there isn’t a thing we can do about him but wait him out.
At this point, we treat him like we treated Obama for 8 years, as soon as we saw him, we changed the channel. Who needs the aggravation.
The less we hear of him the better.
Johnno: Blunder was, but he created a new account.
TomA: I also find it interesting that so many who believe that Francis is the Vicar of Christ have no problem calling him all sorts of disrespectful names.
They are in essence calling Christ those names since they think he is Pope. Its blasphemy if it were true.
In essence, the not so great stalin is calling Christ a heretic when he calls frankie a heretic.
Bergolio teaches a new eco-religion. If you are going to reject this new eco-religion, then you must reject the authority of Bergolio to teach it. Otherwise you are in essence saying that Christ gave you a damned if you do or damned if you dont proposition. You are saying that Christ gave His authority to Bergolio to teach you this new eco-religion, but He expects you to reject it. I will settle for the mystery as to the visibility of the Church before I try to square that impossible and asinine circle.
TomA, Is it also a blasphemy to call St. Peter a heretic with this we resist you to your face trope? I find it extraordinarily offensive when I hear St. Peter called a heretic to defend the phony papacy of the actual heretic Bergoglio.
This is actually from New Advent Catholic Encyclopedia: “Blasphemy (Greek blaptein, “to injure”, and pheme, “reputation”) signifies etymologically gross irreverence towards any person or thing worthy of exalted esteem.”
I’d say calling SAINT Peter a heretic is blasphemy and if I were a recognize and resist Catholic, I’d at least use a less blasphemous argument. And as a SSPX Priest once advised on pain of sin, I’d not call the Pope “Frankie” nor Bergoglio. Cognitive dissonance. The Papacy is worthy of exalted esteem as well, so to claim a heretic and apostate is the Pope, that’s blasphemy.

Former Vatican Bank chief: Authors of New World Order demographic collapse influencing the Vatican
Long time no see Comrade. On the subject of Apocalypse Chapter 8, I always thought a good theory was that “wormwood” is modernism and all that flowed from Vatican II, poisoning the normal avenues of grace (Mass, sacraments etc). The great falling stars of Chapter 8 and 9 have been likened to fallen (apostate?) bishops. For me this perfectly describes John XXIII and Paul VI, who together unleashed the demons upon the Church and the world when they disobeyed Our Lady. Incidentally Paul VI once commented to his friend Jean Guitton before a council session that he was about to blow one of the trumpets of the Apocalypse. Go figure.
The big problem with placing John and Paul in Chapters 8 and 9 is where do you put our friend Bergoglio? Perhaps the 2nd best in Chapter 13 is appropriate? Sister Lucy did say that the entirety of the 3rd secret is in Chapters 8-13 and it seems things are coming to a head. Time will tell.
Hi Sweep – Just finished reading Beyond Politics by Solange Hertz. The Abomination of Desolation a.k.a. “Family Planning” proceeds full speed ahead in every Temple all the way to Vatican. Indeed, the smoke of Satan fills it!
The “resisting Peter to the face” argument destroyed:
(Disclaimer: I am not a member of that illegal and illicit SECT represented by the author.)
So which illegal illicit sect are you a member of?
Tom A, Why do you believe that A Simple Beggar is a member of an illegal illicit sect?
Melanie and TomA: I suspect that A Simple Beggar is a home-aloner who believes that all of the traditional clergy and their sacraments are illicit.
I am attached to no sect other than Holy Mother Church in strict Justice. One cannot break Church Laws no matter the circumstances much less save one’s soul while doing so. It is blasphemous to say that Christ did not foresee the current circumstances and therefore failed to make lawful provisions for them. Even Marie-Julie Jahenny said that “the infallible works of the Church will cease to exist for a time”. This is the one position that God could not possibly hold against anyone, even if it were to be wrong, which it is not. Nevertheless, I’m not here to argue nor to convince anyone of anything. The Truth is everything and you have to truly want it at any cost, by the grace of God.
