Pope Francis: The Power of Dialogue in the Age of Climate Change

Annie Leonard

I find it really interesting how news stories and social media reporting on Pope Francis’ visit to the U.S. have responded to his taking a strong stand on climate change.

His message about climate change and poverty is disingenuous, given that women are left out of his patriarchal equation. His logic doesn't compute (although I understand he gets a dispensation).
I am not a great defender of Congress, but I am not paying attention to him either. And this is a challenge given that is all the mainstream media, and Common Dreams, seems to be focused on.

This article reads like a fluff piece to me.

Faith-based communities are a prime example of people who shouldn’t be pigeonholed, which is why Story of Stuff developed several programs to help Christian and Jewish teenagers explore the relationship between
their consumption, their faith and the health of the planet.

What lovely logic. The sentence is its own undoing as it illustrates how faith-based communities pigeonhole themselves.

To me he is the pot calling the kettle black . . . not so convincing.
