Neither Joe Biden, nearly 79, nor Pope Francis, soon to be 85, are scientists or medical doctors. They are both leftists, and as such are proponents of the debated issue known alternatively as climate change or global warming. Climate change is much preferred since it cuts a wider swath including global cooling, wildfires, droughts, floods or other phenomena that have been recorded throughout history. Francis gave an encyclical on ecology, declaring that climate change is real and mainly “a result of human activity.” The problem is urgent, he said. “Never have we so hurt and mistreated our common home as we have in the last two hundred years.”
The United States is just over two hundred years since its founding, making Francis’ words appear to be a pointed barb. Given that no nation was mechanized then, his time frame is more than odd. These two wizards will also discuss the Covid-19 pandemic.
The duo will meet at the Vatican Oct. 29 to discuss things over which they have no control, though it would seem the pope would use the opportunity to dissuade Catholic Biden from his pro-abortion stance, since a pro-life position is a basic tenant of the faith.
In June, the U.S. Catholic bishops overwhelmingly approved the drafting of a “teaching document” that many hope will rebuke Catholic politicians, including Biden, for receiving communion despite their support for the gruesome act of abortion.
But Biden and Francis are cunning liberals who are both more political than religious. Their agenda states the duo “will discuss working together on efforts grounded in respect for fundamental human dignity, including ending the COVID-19 pandemic. They must have missed that abortion permanently disrespects human dignity as preborn humans are brutally ripped from what should be the safety of their mother’s uterus.
When Argentine Francis came to the United States to address congress in 2015, he stopped first in Cuba, prioritizing his meeting with Communist dictators Fidel and Raul Castro, where they warmly conversed in Spanish and dined, like old amigos.
