Conservatives Christians upset that somebody is listening to science regarding GW and speaking out.
Why am I not surprised.
You go Pope :-)

GW has nothing to do with good science. Never has. It does follow junk, pop-culture science, however.

That's grossly offensive to science and junk.

I'd call it magical and/or delusional thinking, but that's grossly insulting to thought.
If Trump where half as smart as he thinks he is, he'd be twice as smart as he really is.

What is fascinating is so many presidential candidates are Catholics
Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Christie , Jindal, Santorum, Pataki.
There is no doubt Pope Francis is a SUPERSTAR.
I'm an athiest and a huge fan.
I totally support this pope speaking up on the issues of the day.
You go pope.

The creation museum is not taxing anyone or threatening to take away their freedoms.

Catholics are pig piling on the encyclical the pope
put out. I wonder who wrote it, the pope is in his
80's, I'm sure it wasn't him. It's a bizarre document,
read the comment section in the article. It's driving
Catholics away from the church.

If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

This pope is a rock star.
Last pope was weak, protected pedophiles and the rich bishops living in luxury.
Pope before that was the anti-communist pope
This pope is a rock star, the peoples pope.
No doubt so-called Christians in the western world dont appreciate this pope but a lot of that is due to they have a different view of Christianity.
Among these Christians(westboro baptist and the gay haters such as Franklin Graham), hate is ok. No doubt the pope are losing these people but then I dont consider these haters followers of the teachings of Jesus.
In Asia and South America this guy is a gigantic Rock Star, the peoples Pope.
Even in Europe and USA, he's a rock star.
I'm an athiest and I am a huge fan. I doubt that I am alone. He's got to have millions of non-catholic fans.
Overall he may lose a few but gain a ton.
He comes to the USA, I predict rock star crowds.

I suppose so. The uttering of mindless bromides stated as profound, original truths is part and parcel of rock lyrics.

'The Pope, under the spell of his chief scientific adviser, a fanatical German climate activist called Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, calls for an end to use of the very fossil fuels which keep the Vatican’s own lights on. In asking us to pray for that global climate treaty, Pope Francis solemnly trots out all those familiar plaints about “melting polar ice caps”, “rising sea levels”, unprecedented droughts, “extreme weather events” and the rest of that greenie litany which has no basis in honest science whatever.

The outside world is no longer listening to this claptrap. But it is not just the world outside the West which is beginning to call the shots. Reality itself is now knocking loudly at the door.'
