    MANILA — Pope Francis waded into the global debate on climate change and the environment on Sunday, saying in the text of a speech that man was destroying nature and betraying God's calling to be stewards of creation. Francis offered his thoughts about the environment and climate change for the second time in four days at a rally with young people at a Manila university on the last full day of a week-long Asian tour that has taken him to Sri Lanka and the Philippines. He did not read all of a speech prepared for delivery at the university, improvising...

    Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first LOVE. Rev 2:4 Small wonder liberals are such miserable people. To spend your entire life trying to earn your way into heaven when there is no possible chance of earning it brings hopelessness. According to the church of liberalism you have to accept and practice all the liberal doxology to become a truly good person. Being a good person to a liberal means you have to be more liberal and tolerant than those intolerant Conservatives. This is why you end up with people always being frustrated and angry from...

    And so we know and rely on the LOVE God has for us. God is LOVE. Whoever lives in LOVE lives in God, and God in him. 1 John 4:16 In the Peoples Republic of Portland the commies really love their Choo Choos. They have wasted tens of Billions of other people’s money so a few thousand riders can ride Light Rail. This is not about transportation or even the corruption we have in Tri-Met mass transit, this is goes to the darkest depths of the liberal mindset. For the most hardcore liberal who worships the earth these trains are...

    Each Sunday, worshippers file into the York-Ogunquit United Methodist Church beneath a cross and, since February, a symbol of another sort. The church's roof is now partly covered by an array of solar panels that make electricity to run the lights and heat inside the sanctuary. It's perhaps the most visible evidence yet of a growing environmental ethic spreading through Maine's religious communities. "Certainly we want to lower our power bill," said William Wieting, chairman of church's board of trustees. "But the enthusiasm didn't derive from the monetary value to the church as much as it was the right thing...

    The Jesuits in Guelph, Ont., have a plan that's only going to take them 500 years to complete. The Jesuits are comparing their Old Growth Forest Project to such ambitious schemes as the medieval cathedrals of Europe, the pyramids and the Great Wall of China. The priests are setting aside land for a future forest ? a forest that won't qualify as old growth until a handful of centuries have passed. This forest starts with a web site, At the site, people are invited to donate. For every $20 gift the Jesuits will set aside a square metre of...

    Wednesday, August 11, 2004 NPR: Human Plant Life Is Sacred Here's a fitting juxtaposition of two stories NPR has run (so far) this week on "Morning Edition". The first, which ran on Monday, about "stem cell research", trumpeted science the technology industry's latest triumph: feeding embryonic stem cells with human placenta cells (instead of the industry standard of mouse skin cells). From such grisly irony new lines of stem cells have been produced, but, alas, these new lines will never receive federal funding (until Kerry is elected) because Bush decided on his own that killing human beings for personal...

    Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger today applauded the release of a report by his Climate Action Team that contains recommendations to dramatically reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Last June, the Governor issued an executive order establishing unprecedented pollution reduction targets and the creation of a team of experts to recommend ways to achieve those goals. "As we begin a dialogue on the findings of this report, I would like to congratulate the Climate Action Team for their hard work and dedication to reducing greenhouse gases," said Governor Schwarzenegger. "I asked for 'out of the box' thinking to achieve groundbreaking reductions in greenhouse...

    As a traditional Jew, I'm deeply concerned over the plight of the Roman Catholic Church, which I consider to be the largest and most influential repository of conservative Judeo-Christian values in America today. I believe that those of us who care about the furtherance of a moral society have a stake in the future of the church as a moral force. The American church is under siege today, not only from the usual external forces but also from the weight of its own internal contradictions. The scandal of corrupt homosexual priests violating the innocence of minors in their care is,...

    A wolf on one hill sings out in the wilderness and a wolf on another hill answers back. A cantor in a church sings a verse and the congregation answers back. In "Missa Gaia," a wolf calls out and a tenor answers back. Then a saxophone answers the tenor. Commonly known as "Paul Winter's Earth Mass," the Missa Gaia is a musical tribute to the interconnectedness of the Earth and all beings on it. Composed in 1980, Missa Gaia was first performed on Mother's Day in 1981 to celebrate Mother Earth and all mothers. Since 1985, it has annually been...

    Global warming could submerge three large Indian cities Date: December 8 2003 Global warming could submerge three of India's biggest cities beneath the sea by 2020 unless the crisis was brought under control, an Indian scientist warned yesterday. "If the warming continues, there will be about half to one metre increase in sea level by 2020 and cities like Bombay, Calcutta and Madras will be completely submerged," said Rajiv Nigam, a scientist with the Geological Oceanography Division in the western Indian state of Goa. He said a one-metre rise in sea level could cause five trillion rupees ($A147.24 billion) worth...

    FOREWORD The present study is concerned with the complex phenomenon of “New Age” which is influencing many aspects of contemporary culture. The study is a provisional report. It is the fruit of the common reflection of the Working Group on New Religious Movements, composed of staff members of different dicasteries of the Holy See: the Pontifical Councils for Culture and for Interreligious Dialogue (which are the principal redactors for this project), the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples and the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity. These reflections are offered primarily to those engaged in pastoral work so that they...

    Rome's Chief Exorcist Warns Parents Against Harry Potter NEW YORK, Jan 2, 02 ( - In early December, Rome's official exorcist, Father Gabriele Amorth, warned parents against the Harry Potter book series. The priest, who is also the president of the International Association of Exorcists, said Satan is behind the works. In an interview with the Italian ANSA news agency, Father Amorth said, "Behind Harry Potter hides the signature of the king of the darkness, the devil." The exorcist, with his decades of experience in directly combating evil, explained that J.K. Rowling's books contain innumerable positive references to magic, "the...

    The Miami blue butterfly hovers near extinction, a victim of hurricanes, mosquitoes, and troglodyte developers. Environmentalists weep and liberals blame the Bush administrations, presidential and gubernatorial. These same butterfly mourners form a blockade against the teaching of Creationism because evolution is the origin of species. The liberal mind has tangled ganglia and mitochondria that prevent short-circuits for philosophical inconsistencies. They will not acknowledge that evolution, by its very definition, demands extinction. Liberal brains are hotwired so that laws and order don't interfere with desires. With the Lott expulsion, conservatives use megawatt capacity trying to glean the liberal rules of play....

    GLOBAL EARTH TRUSTEE AGENDA for the NEW MILLENNIUM By John McConnell - The Founder of Earth Day Introduction Back in 1933 Albert Schweitzer, a world renowned scholar, wrote that "the world is inexplicably mysterious and full of suffering." The human race has a long history of violence - war, hate and injustice. But in the midst of all this chaos and violence we find some people replacing conflict with cooperation, and fear with faith finding a common cause and cooperating for mutual benefit. In the human heart hope springs eternal. "Every time I hear a new-born baby cry, or touch...
