For the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), it is not enough oppress Americans with the mere authority of the US federal government. No, it had to go and up the ante by teaming up with the papal Antichrist.
According to an article from the Associated Press,
Environmental Protection Agency chief Gina McCarthy met with Vatican officials working to draft Pope Francis’ climate change encyclical on Friday, applauding The Holy See for engaging Catholics on the issue.
The article continues,
EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy told reporters that her aim in visiting was to show the Vatican how aligned President Barack Obama and Francis are on climate change.
The UN globalists have been pushing the bogus man-made climate change meme for twenty years. Of course, during that time, they’ve changed their story. First, it was global warming. When that was exposed as a sham, they simply repackaged their hooey as climate change. Now that the ultimate globalist has joined their crusade against cheap, plentiful energy, economic prosperity and freedom, politicians are quick to seek the blessing of Antichrist to provide cover for them to do what they wanted to do in the first place.
This and other trips to the Vatican by high US government officials raises the question, whatever happened to the separation of church and state? Apparently, it depends on what church one is talking about. God help the municipality caught with a copy of the ten Commandments on public property. As one of the plagues of Egypt, the ACLU will be quick to descend upon them with its team of high-powered lawyers all for the purpose of ensuring that never again will the good citizens of said community have their consciences pricked by exposure to the law of God. On the other hand, making a pilgrimage to the Vatican to kiss the pope’s ring raises nary an eyebrow.
Of course, pilgrimages to the Vatican are not the only way the Obama administration cooperates with the Roman Catholic Church-State. According to an article in the Hill, when in Rome,
McCarthy met with [Vatican] officials to discuss working with the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and nongovernmental organizations to put a spotlight on the need for action on climate change, according to a readout of the meeting from EPA.
Not that it is any surprise given the Roman Catholic Church-State’s long-running hatred of, and war against, capitalism, but the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has been pressing the EPA to get on board with legislation to limit carbon emissions. For example, in his 2014 letter to Gina McCarthy, the Most Reverend Thomas G. Wenski of the USCCB’s Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development wrote,
As bishops and people of faith, we do not speak as experts on carbon pollution or on the technical remedies to address climate change. We are pastors in a faith tradition that teaches, as Pope Francis recently stated, “Creation is a gift, it is a wonderful gift that God has given us, so that we care for it and we use it for the benefit of all, always with great respect and gratitude.
The best evidence indicates that power plants are the largest stationary source or carbon emissions in the United States, and a major contributor to climate change. Power plants have often been located near low-income neighborhoods and communities of color. Air pollution from these plants contributes to respiratory problems, especially in the young and the elderly.
