Pope Francis spoke recently to a UK Catholic Weekly publication about the coronavirus. He demonstrated just how out of touch he is with the world around us and just how far left he wants Catholics to move in his quest to worship nature. He ignores the good things being done to help the people of the world survive this virus. Yes, in reality, it costs money to battle this virus, yet the pope wants people to stop focusing so much on the economy and focus on nature.
Climate activist Pope Francis called the coronavirus pandemic “nature’s responses” to the world’s ambivalence to climate change. He claimed that there is an expression in Spanish that “nature never forgives”, indicating that the world’s inaction on climate change caused nature to create the virus.
‘God always forgives, we forgive sometimes, but nature never forgives.’
The pope claims that the world hasn’t responded adequately to the floods and fires so this may be the revenge of nature:
“Who now speaks of the fires in Australia, or remembers that 18 months ago a boat could cross the North Pole because the glaciers had all melted?”
“Who speaks now of the floods? I don’t know if these are the revenge of nature, but they are certainly nature’s responses.”
He believes the coronavirus will give the world a chance to change:
“This is the time to take the decisive step, to move from using and misusing nature to contemplating it.”
The pope took a swipe at those he considers hypocrites. He names those who “manufacture weapons”…
“This crisis is affecting us all, rich and poor alike, and putting a spotlight on hypocrisy.”
“I am worried by the hypocrisy of certain political personalities who speak of facing up to the crisis, of the problem of hunger in the world, but who in the meantime manufacture weapons.”
The pope wants nations to focus on nature and not so much on the economy:
“I believe we have to slow down our rate of production and consumption and to learn to understand and contemplate the natural world. We need to reconnect with our real surroundings. This is the opportunity for conversion.”
