Misleading portrait
December 10th, 2015
By Father Thomas J. Whelan, OSA

Ed Binetti spreads the misleading portrait of Pope Francis by climate change deniers who do not want to listen to the Pope’s authoritative moral voice in the encyclical “Laudato Si” by giving misinformation about Pope Francis by saying “Francis is not a scientist.”The fact is that Pope Francis was educated as a scientist before he entered seminary, and so his scientific background gives weight to his moral teaching on the environment.Check the facts before making a statement about Pope Francis.
