    Let’s not forget that hundreds of millions of ppl in africa and s america and asia couldn’t care less about the political points scoring game called “global warming” that we play here on our ipads etc. but have real concerns about what our rampant materialism is doing to their ability to raise families and earn enough money to feed them…we’re so obsessed in the west with our ourselves!

    Francis knows full well what socialism brings which is hell on earth but as JP2 who warned newly free eastern europe of the evil temptations of consumerism, he is also warning us what our materialism leads to…it leads to atheism and the destruction of the planet and in the process the natural family.
