Why does the Pope want to redistribute wealth and destroy the US economy?

Attention media: since Newt and the Frothy Mixture are running as the True Devout Catholics of the Republican Party, could you please ask them what their response is to this Papal decree?

The Pope reached across the aisle of all denominations and all nations to address the issues of global warming.

In a statement on the Vatican website, Pope Benedict XVI made a bold “call to action” for “all people in all nations.”

Here’s the beginning of the statement.

We call on all people and nations to recognise the serious and potentially irreversible impacts of global warming caused by the anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants, and by changes in forests, wetlands, grasslands, and other land uses. We appeal to all nations to develop and implement, without delay, effective and fair policies to reduce the causes and impacts of climate change on communities and ecosystems, including mountain glaciers and their watersheds, aware that we all live in the same home. By acting now, in the spirit of common but differentiated responsibility, we accept our duty to one another and to the stewardship of a planet blessed with the gift of life.

Doesn’t the Pope know that global warming is a secular socialist conspiracy mastermined by Al Gore and George Soros?

As for Newt, he recently proposed abolishing the EPA because of its “attempts to regulate greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, and thereby the entire American economy” and in 2008, wrote, ““I do not know if the climate is warming or not.”

In 2009, Santorum wrote,

“It is one thing for ideologically driven science to indoctrinate children in classrooms. It is another for politicians to use science to destroy national economies and redistribute global wealth. I refer, of course, to the latest scientific non-controversy, man-made global warming.”

Since both Newt and the Frothy Mixture are directly at odds with the teaching of the Vatican, I assume they’ll either recant their previous statements and join the Pope in working to enact policies that curb carbon emissions — or henceforth refrain from receiving Communion.
