Conservative Group Blasts the Pope: "Paganism" Has "Entered the Church"

Conservative Group Blasts the Pope: "Paganism" Has "Entered the Church" | Mother Jones

Quote:
The event, which Heartland had billed as a challenge to Pope Francis' "views on global warming and the nature of capitalism," was recorded by the liberal group American Bridge. Talking Points Memo first reported on the video Friday. You can watch an excerpt above.

The pope, who is visiting the United States next week, has called on policymakers to take action to control climate change and has criticized the excesses of free market capitalism. According to Koprowski, when Heartland staffers first began reading news stories about the pope speaking out on climate, they were "shocked that the pope was buying into this left-wing political craze that is global warming." So in April, Heartland sent a delegation of climate skeptics to Rome to offer a "prebuttal" to a Vatican climate summit in an attempt to change the pope's mind.

"When the Vatican leapt into the controversy on climate science, we were initially under the impression that His Holiness was a victim of bad advice from bad advisers," Koprowski said Thursday. "There were people from the UN who were population control advocates. There were people from other left-wing groups who were advising the pontiff."

But Koprowski said that after the pope released his landmark encyclical calling for action on climate change, he began to suspect that "something more may be afoot." Koprowski then invoked pagan rituals and "nature worship" that he said were "seeping into the Church" during the Middle Ages, adding: "I'm wondering, as a scholar, if pagan forms are returning to the Church this day."
We all knew this was coming. The right wing doesn't want to disrupt its political cult of worship the rich and hate the poor because the NIV god hates the poor. And defend corporate pollution to the nth degree is the political cult's attack on the environment.

We all knew this was coming. This anti-Christ message has been with us since the born again evangelical cult was formed in the early 1970's.

Right, Christians want to see the earth destroyed before our Sun burns it to a crisp.

I don't think Christians do. But born again evangelicals do. It's about a white horse and the second coming in Missori.....

Satan is called the Father of Lies by Jesus.

Heartland's opinion on AGW being "junk science" isn't the first time they've made that accusation.

Joe Camel is Innocent!

Quote:
Heartland has long questioned the links between tobacco smoking, secondhand smoke, and lung cancer and the social costs imposed by smokers.[37] One of Heartlandís first and most prominent campaigns was against tobacco regulation.[6] According to the Los Angeles Times, Heartland's advocacy for the tobacco industry is one of the two things Heartland is most widely known for.[38]

During the 1990s, the Heartland Institute worked with tobacco company Philip Morris to question the links between smoking, secondhand smoke and health risks. Philip Morris commissioned Heartland to write and distribute reports. Heartland published a policy study which summarized a jointly prepared report by the Association of Private Enterprise Education and Philip Morris. The Heartland Institute also undertook a variety of other activities on behalf of the tobacco industry, including meeting with legislators, holding off-the-record briefings, and producing op-eds, radio interviews, and letters.[39]:233-234

A 1993 internal "Five Year Plan" from Philip Morris to address environmental tobacco smoke regulation called for support for the efforts of the Heartland Institute.[40][41] In 1996, Heartland president and chief executive officer Joe Bast wrote an essay entitled "Joe Camel is Innocent!,"[6][40] which said that contributions from the tobacco industry to Republican political campaigns were most likely because Republicans "have been leading the fight against the use of 'junk science' by the Food and Drug Administration and its evil twin, the Environmental Protection Agency."

They are so intolerant that they will even attack the Pope if he says something they don't agree with. If only he could be like their real Pope - Pope Bibi Netanyahu that is.

They're puppets on his strings.

I chuckled at LW's posting of the Heartland Institute's report.

Heartland and scholar go together like cabbage soup and chocolate sauce.
