Imagine a world in which I, a former member of the media, decided I was going to be the czar of all things engineering. Now, I have never studied anything regarding engineering. I’ve got a sister-in-law who’s a civil engineer, so I guess I could ask her a few questions if I needed to, but other than that, I’m pretty clueless. The same thing would be true if you took me to Marysville, Ohio, to the Honda plant and said, “Run it”. Nope. Couldn’t do it. I’m not expert in automobile building to accomplish such a feat.
But if you told me to interview a celebrity, call the play-by-play for the Super Bowl in February, host a three hour long talk show, put together a marketing plan for a business, sell advertising to various businesses, I’d be in my wheelhouse. Those are things I can do with my eyes shut.
When it comes to religion, I view myself as a religious man….but I leave the theology to others…those better trained. Yes, I’ve read the Bible several times, I’ve even taught Bible study…but I don’t consider myself an expert in the same vein that my pastor is. Or the Pope. So, why does the Pope think he’s an expert in climatology all of a sudden?
Pope Francis, in case you’ve been too busy between the holidays to notice, has said his number one priority in 2015 is going to be dealing with climate change. Not helping the poor. Not bringing more lost souls to Christ. Not preaching the gospel. He’s going to calm the seas, make the sunshine less dangerous, and save New York and Los Angeles from sinking into the oceans. He’s going to save the polar bears floating on those ice bergs out there. What a kind and Jesus-like gesture. Don’t I remember Jesus doing something like that in the Bible…saving polar bears?
Pope Francis needs to forget about losing his waning years on climate change and stick to what he’s supposed to do…be the Vicar of Christ. The world doesn’t need another uninformed do-gooder running around telling us that we’re going to blow up if we don’t sign the Kyoto Accord. We’ve still got Al Gore, and one Al Gore is more than enough thank you!
What is it about these people that once they get a high position of respect, they go all ape-shit on us? Bobo Obama did it. He believed the grandiose things that people were saying about him in Denver back in 2008. Where did it get him? Our worst president in history. 23 scandals with 2 years left…plenty of time to double that number if he really tries. And what does Pope Francis seem to think he’s going to do regarding something like global warming that doesn’t even exist? Pope, in case you missed it, the earth is cooling. Man is polluting, yes…but that’s not what’s causing “climate change”. The climate changes. It’s a natural phenomenon of earth. God was wonderful when he created the earth. It can basically look after itself. You’re forgetting that there IS a higher power than you. God wouldn’t and didn’t create something we could and would destroy. Sorry. Not the God I worship. Maybe the God you do, but I thought Catholics worshipped the same God I do.
We need a Pope that is going to see to the spiritual needs of the people. I can’t believe that job has already been accomplished. After all, there’s a bunch of Islamic terrorists out there thinking THEY worship the one true God. Hmmm. Seems Pope Francis DOES have his work cut out for him after all!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
