Vatican, World Bank partner to launch Year of Mercy with St. Peter’s ‘climate change’ light show

ROME, December 4, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) — The Catholic Church, founded to shed the light of Christ on the world, has quite literally invited the world to shed its light on her. On December 8, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception as well as the opening of the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy, Pope Francis has invited climate-change partisans and population-control advocates to project a light show onto the façade and cupola of Saint Peter’s Basilica in Rome — the most important church in the Catholic world — so as to “inspire change around the climate crisis.”

    The lies start at the first sentence. The Roman church wasn’t anywhere near first and ended up having nothing to do with Christ.

    • He is not the Pope we need.

      • Sean

        We don’t need a pope. Full stop.

    • I’d love to see you get into an argument with Ann Barnhardt.

        they worship isis/istar of the morning star., the egyptian god in the form of the “virgin mary” and the copts are way older. I see a gradual shift in the roman church toward the boggy ground inhabited by the untied church.can a schism repair be that far off with this pope.?

        • Mary certainly serves a pretty universal human need for a female aspect of the divine. Identifying her with Isis or Ishtar seems far-fetched to me. Anyway Venus/Aphrodite is the morning star (a role she did inherit from Mesopotamian deities). Does that make Mary a sex-goddess?

          • ntt1

            quite possibly..

        Church history, not to mention the Bible itself, is pretty clear on what the Roman church is and is not.

        • Out of interest – and I don’t mean this combatively at all, I’m just a humble agnostic – is it your contention then that there was no actual Christianity in Europe (maybe excluding the Orthodox?) from, I dunno, 315 AD until Luther? Doesn’t that make the notion of Christendom a bit hard to apply?

          Don’t bother if you don’t feel like it. I just find these things a bit hard to grasp. They interest me.

          • Sean

            315’s an interesting choice of date. Athanasius and Augustine are preaching and teaching long after that date.

            There’s been Christianity since His starting of His ministry around 30AD. The problem with the Romans is that it gets seriously corrupted in the dark/middle ages. The practice of indulgences and the rampant corruption within the church itself leads to the Reformation.

            The papal succession that the Romans like to think exists doesn’t: remember that at one point there are three popes not to mention all the times there are two. The office of the papacy does not exist in the Bible. Roman church followers like to think that the “You are Peter” passage in Matthew 16 denotes Peter as the keyholder of the church but basic hermeneutics (art and science of Bible reading and exegesis) ruins that real quick.

            The Marian dogmas (Immaculate Conception, Co-Redemptrix status, etc.) are also unbiblical and heretical. Mary herself in Acts proclaims Jesus as her Saviour… now why would she need to do that if she’s Immaculately Conceived and a Redeemer of Souls? The Marian dogmas are products of men and not of God nor Christ. The early church fathers would burn those, that believe this now, at the stake then.

            The Roman church anathematized Justification by Faith alone in the Council of Trent, 1506, in total contravention of Romans 3:28 and the teachings/understandings of the early church.

            Historically, after the assumption of Christianity as the state religion by Constantine and the troubles within Europe afterwards, the Bishop of Rome keeps accumulating power and influence without any regard for Christ. Emperors appoint popes, popes appoint emperors, papacies are bought and sold. Luther ended up reading the Bible, nailed his theses, and taught in the same fashion as Savonarola.

            IF you’d like a more indepth and much more articulate rendering of actual Church history and not the manmade traditions of the Romans, either catch a James White youtube or the podcasts from a couple years ago from Grace Family Baptist in Houston, TX.

    While the commie Pope sits on his throne and cries over the global warming scam, the barbarians are at the gates, and will put on a real light show when the muslim hordes burn down the Vatican.

      The whole point of having a South American pope was to expand the church because Benedict had to deal with the scandals of the church so he was pushed out. Also, the church was and is expanding in South America and Africa and SE Asia. Therefore, what other choice was there. All having a pope like Pope John Paul II would accomplish is a holy war between Christian fundamentalists and Muslims or a clash of civilizations. Francis has his good points in that he wants poverty eradicated and he wants capitalism to be reformed to help the middle classes which are now close to non-existent in the Western world.

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        The current pope is a fucking pussy.

        • Billy Bob Thornton

          I want us to actually follow Russia in how they are trying to deal with the situation in Syria, but I argue the West is not serious because Syria is a staging point and a proxy war with Russia.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            Assad is an eye doctor who got drafted by his family after his brother, a Sonny Corleone analogue, was killed.
            I have no idea why the west wants to get rid of him after the evidence of Iraq and Libya should tell them to leave well enough alone.

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            Exactly and I think the West does want Assad to leave since no one is criticizing Turkey for the shoot down of the Russia airliner and their dealings with ISIS, a Turkish funded and Saudi funded group. The media liberal or conservative is not explaining this. To better understand each conflict, you need to know the why are we getting involved?! I think liberal, conservative it doesn’t matter. No party in Canada or the US is criticizing Turkey or calling for them to be removed from NATO.

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            I also write what I write because I trust Russia in their fight. I don’t think we are going to do anything there.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            I don’t often agree with you.
            It’s nice this time.

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            As I say I am a nationalist, but I tend to lean towards non-interventionism and war only when it is convenient and spelled out. That is the position I think all nations have to come from and our leaders are not honest about what their intentions are. Which is why to me the mainstream is the problem and why I am a member of the Canadian Action party.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            Mel Hurtig is a nationalist but I think he’s a nutjob.
            I’ve been trying to find the wedge that separates you from him.

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            His books I guess can be interpreted as what some would call Harper Derangement but his beef with Harper was his governing style and negative advertising. When growing a party, you tend to lean in certain directions. I do agree with Hurtig on the environment and on gun ownership. The party would be too close to the NDP with those policies. It has to be centrist in my eyes and appeal to anti-immigration policies, gun ownership and foreign policy which is closer to war when it is necessary. It is anti-globalization which I support.

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            I meant by this comment that Hurtig is pro-global environment which I oppose. Sorry I made an error in that comment but Hurtig is not an active party member.
