(op-ed:..) suggestion: i mean – good on him for speaking up/out – tho’ he could lead/show by example – divesting papal-monies from all the industries that are causing the fucken mess in the first place – (‘cos decrying-of and profiting-from at the same time do make such uneasy bedfellows..eh..?)
that and wholesale ‘greening’ of all church activities/sermons on the need for change/papal-decrees to followers – would give his words an added/much-needed ring of authenticity..eh..?..
hell..!..he could even go wild and crazy and stop also contributing to one third of our ‘problem’ (if you can so diminish the inexcusable/undeniable fact that continuing on the current path – thus guaranteeing the end of humanity – as/by calling it a ‘problem’…a fungal-nail infection is a ‘problem’ – a leaking roof is a problem..this is all kinda more so than that..eh..?) –
so my other suggestion for the pope – to demonstrate sincerity – is that he could stop supporting/eating the end-products from the animal-farming charnel-houses..and most importantly he should start instructing his followers/issuing papal-decrees on such matters..eh..?
and the pope not doing any of that/the above leaves his words as just so much more – albeit papal – hot-air..eh..?..
..and the pope/the catholic church (and all the other brands) need to become leaders in this new reformation..
..time is fast running out..)
