Pope's Science Adviser's Political Agenda Exposed

Jordan Candler · Jun. 24, 2015

An old adage from the Gospel of Matthew warns, “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves” (7:15). Unfortunately, Pope Francis did just the opposite when writing the environmental portion of his encyclical. Microbiologist Hans Schellnhuber is a science adviser to the Vatican, and also a fraud. Schellnhuber is in fact a strong believer in the Gaia hypothesis — in a nut shell, the worship of Mother Earth. “When Francis’ encyclical was leaked last week, we wondered if his position on the man-made global warming question was ‘a misuse of the authority of the Roman Catholic Church and the church at large,’” writes the Investor’s Business Daily editorial board. “Our conclusion has only been solidified by the revelation that the pope was in league with Schellnhuber. … From atheists to strong-arm redistributionists, this pope is unequally yoked with those who don’t share the tenets of his faith — but who are happy to use that faith to achieve their political aims. Yes, there’s truly something wrong here.”
