"Genesis 1:28King James Version (KJV)

28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth."

The issue is global warming.  Pope Francis clearly believes we have a duty to protect that which God gave us dominion over.  Now before I hear it , you might want to check the variant definitions of subdue and its historical meaning over time.

But logic tells us, God did not give us dominion over his creations to destroy them. 

The gift was clearly given to us to sustain us, and not for us to destroy.

"Genesis 1:29King James Version (KJV)

29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat."


In considering the Pope's position remember he is a trained chemist.  The argument the Pope has no business speaking about preserving the earth and the gifts from God only proves how far out Fox News really is.  Catholics are not going to respond well to such attacks on the Pope.  The penalty will go to the Republicans.

The Pope on Twitter explained his position

Pope Francis
Earth is essentially a shared inheritance, whose fruits are meant to benefit everyone.
For me the Holocaust statement was powerful. Long before Hitler was a voice in Germany, Henry Ford published in the Dearborn Independent a series of articles knows as "The International Jew." I  inherited from my father [passed 52 years ago today] a book form of the essays, republished by a Christian minister.  So there is no confusion my father was arrested many times with Jews who like himself were labelled by the FDR administration as communists for trying to organize the workers into unions. 

The anti-Jewish sentiment in the US leading up to and during WWII is why we ignored what Germany was doing to the Jews.  This is historical fact we do not teach in our schools.

Henry Ford was in Germany helping Hitler to build a name for himself, while financing him, and eventually helping Hitler build the military industrial complex which became his war machine.  Henry Ford made millions on helping Hitler.  This is another one of those facts we cannot speak of in our schools.

Pope Francis is spot on - it is time Christians ask themselves are they walking the walk or just going through the motions with the same old BS - "I believe Jesus is my savior so I can do as I please."  No, salvation is living the message of Joshua, and not in claiming he is your savior. 


Catholics and other Christians will begin to question the Republican message.  They will tire of the attacks on the Pope.

Pope Francis is moving forward with the message of Joshua without concern for how corporate American and the fake religious right will respond. 

It says a lot about the Republicans when they claim to stand for the churches until one of its leaders refuses to buy into its message, and then all of a sudden the Pope should stay out politics.
