Tell Your Senators: Don't Diss Pope Francis
Earlier this year, Pope Francis held a climate change summit at Vatican City where he said "Human induced climate change is a scientific reality, and its decisive mitigation is a moral and religious imperative for humanity...If we destroy creation, creation will destroy us."
That's why we're so encouraged that Pope Francis plans to release a Papal Edict on the dangers of global warming and our moral obligation to solve it right before he visits the U.S. later this year. And in anticipation of his visit, he has sent bishops to meet with Congress to discuss environmental stewardship and climate change.
You would think with nearly a third of the House of Representatives and more than a quarter of the Senate describing themselves as Catholic, the Pope's message would hold sway. But instead, some members are indicating that their, "schedules may not permit them to attend."
Please contact your Senators today and tell them plain and simple: Don't Diss The Pope.
