Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone claims it will be called Caritas in Veritate, and that it intends not to repeat the obvious truths of Catholic social teaching, but instead focus on some contemporary issues– “I am thinking of globalization and other problems, like the food crisis and climate change.” Of course, this will not make some American Catholics happy. Those like Rick Santorum who not only opposes efforts to combat combat global warming, but actually argues that opposition to such measures is itself a moral issue. What incredible topsy-turvy logic, and how offensive.
