Huh? US Bishop Believes Global Warming is More Dangerous than Abortion

Published

on

The Bishop of San Diego recently argued that “climate change” could be viewed as “uniquely preeminent in Catholic social teaching” because the potential death toll due to man-made temperature increases is “larger” than abortion and “threatens the very future of humanity.”

In a speech titled “Conscience, Candidates and Discipleship in Voting,” which Bishop Robert J. McElroy gave at the University of San Diego on February 6, 2020, the bishop suggested that Catholic voters need to get their priorities straight for the 2020 election.

“Frequently in discussions of the application of Catholic social teaching to voting, the question is raised whether one issue has a unique priority among all of the other issues in its claim upon believers in the current election cycle. Some have categorized abortion in that way. Others, climate change. This question deserves deeper scrutiny,” he stated.

LifeSite News reported that the bishop went on to list four key points when setting political priorities and how abortion and climate change play into this:

  1. There is no mandate in universal Catholic social teaching that gives a categorical priority to either of these issues as uniquely determinative of the common good.
  2. The death toll from abortion is more immediate, but the long-term death toll from unchecked climate change is larger and threatens the very future of humanity.
  3. Both abortion and the environment are core life issues in Catholic teaching.
  4. The designation of either of these issues as the preeminent question in Catholic social teaching at this time in the United States will inevitably be hijacked by partisan forces to propose that Catholics have an overriding duty to vote for candidates that espouse that position. Recent electoral history shows this to be a certainty.

The numbers for the deaths in America related to “climate change” remain unclear. However, LifeSite noted that abortion “has taken the lives of over 60 million in the U.S. alone since 1973. In the last 100 years, there have been over one billion abortions worldwide.”

The Bishop then proceeded to fearmonger about climate change:

Existing trajectories of pollutants being placed in the atmosphere by human activity, if unchecked, will raise the temperature of the earth in the coming decades, generating  catastrophic rises in human exposure to deadly heat, devastating rises in water levels and massive exposure to a series of perilous viruses. In addition, there will be severe widespread famines, draughts and massive dislocations of peoples that will cause untold deaths, human suffering and violent conflict. The devastating fires in Australia are a sign of what lies before us, and a testimony that, on so many levels, our current pollution of the earth is stealing the future from coming generations. Because the trajectory of danger unleashed by fossil fuels is increasing so rapidly, the next ten years are critical to staunching the threat to our planet.

McElroy made sure to bash the Trump administration in his speech, declaring: “The United States, which was once a leader in this effort, has in the current Administration become the leader in resisting efforts to combat climate change and in denying its existence.”

He added, “As a consequence, the survival of the planet, which is the prerequisite for all human life, is at risk.”

A Catholic official’s embrace of global warming demonstrates how far political correctness has permeated into American civic institutions.

Global warming is one of the Left’s favorite agenda items, and it is the perfect Trojan Horse for them to establish massive control over people’s daily lives.

To make their policies a reality, they infiltrate the culture and create as many evangelists as possible, so as to normalize their radical ideas.

White Student Government Leaders Resign from Their Positions Because of White Guilt

Published

on

The President and the Vice President of the University of Connecticut’s Undergraduate Student Government recently stepped down from their posts.

And they did so because of white guilt.

VP Alex Ose stepped down last week, according to a report from The Daily Campus. She alluded to “the climate and incidents of racial injustice across the country and at the university.” But as Greg Piper of the College Fix noted she did so “without elaborating on what’s wrong at UConn (or why she can’t address the perceived problem as an elected official)”.

Ose stated:

I feel that it is my duty to step down from my position to make space for BIPOC (black, indigineous and people of color) voices to truly rise and be heard. It is my responsibility to make space, not to create an echo.

Ose also called on the rest of the white members of the student government to resign. She challenged her white colleagues to think about the “intent” they have in holding leadership positions and consider making space for BIPC students.

President Joshua Crow wasn’t as radical when he resigned.

“It is important in this time to ensure that marginalized groups have the platforms they need,” he declared, according to The Daily Campus.

Funny enough, Piper pointed out that “Crow’s temporary replacement is … another white guy, Will Schad.”

None of what we see taking place at UConn is occurring in a vacuum. It’s all a part of the cultural revolution that has taken place since the death of George Floyd.

Since the Right has largely put up a feckless defense against the Left as of lately, such groveling to PC mobs will continue at breakneck speeds.

America needs a real opposition to these cultural radicals.
