The current trend of combining religion, business, governments around the globe, and the radical Climate “church” should be concerning to anyone who values liberty. The dangers of Agenda 21’s push for worldwide Sustainable Development is well documented. Though the dangers of the radical green agenda have been trumpeted by many, including Glenn Beck, their warnings seem to have fallen on deaf ears even among those who surround his holiness, the Pope.
Catholic World reports that Catholic leaders recently held an international forum on economic growth and environmental sustainability in Rome. During the event Cardinal Wuerl made a disturbingly socialist argument for Sustainable Development stating that it was a “moral imperative and economic incentive”, and that it’s the role of government to “harness wisdom and creativity” for the “common good” so that it can “reduce the gap between the privileged minority and world’s great majority”:
“In his speech, Cardinal Wuerl said that the need for sustainable development is both “a moral imperative and an economic incentive as a business issue,” and that to commit to taking the task up is “pro-business.”
“Government has a role, and we clearly need strong international agreements. But in moving ahead, business and economic interests necessarily play a significant role,” he said.
“We need to harness that wisdom and creativity in the service of the common good. Such collaboration aligns private and public interests, and reduces the gap between the privileged minority and the world’s great majority.”
He referred to the issue of sustainable development as a “sign of the times…”
It would appear that under the watch of Pope Francis and Cardinal Wuerl not only will the Catholic church push the Marxist idea of Sustainable Development….but they’ll embrace it with a smile on their face.
