The Vatican has evaluated the scientific evidence for climate change and decided that the world must act to avoid the devastation of our life supporting ecosystem, when theological, political and scientific leaders all call for rapid decarbonisation of our global economy it must be time we finally listen and create a binding international climate change agreement.
Someone clearly saw the Vatican, Israel and Saudi Arabia as a broad stage where the President could demonstrate a certain degree of unity and ecumenism and go to places where he could be guaranteed a high degree of symbolism when it came to his first presidential trip, the trip provides a dramatic stage on which to act out his presidential role.
This is a president who has been animated even before he started running for public office by the idea that we need to fight for social and economic justice both in this country and around the world, this has been a hallmark of Pope Francis even before he arrived in the Vatican.
Now that the Pope has made his views clear, it is up to the different forces within the Vatican and within the Catholic Church - the conservatives versus the progressives - to figure out the change.
I am disgusted with Pope Francis, and utterly repulsed with how the Vatican has conducted itself.
