“You can’t find a more decent guy than Pat, you know.”
Roman Catholic priest Rev. Edwards Beck, who believes that denying climate change is a sin, on Wednesday lashed out at game show host Pat Sajak after he compared environmental activists to racists.
“The church has indicated that this is a moral issue,” Beck explained to CNN’s Carol Costello on Wednesday. “We’re stewards of creation, we need to care for it. This is God’s gift to us. And if you abuse it, then you are really maligning that gift.”
“I think the argument could be made that it is more racist to deny climate change because those being effected by it are the poor. The global poor are effected most by climate change, not the rich, who can afford air conditioning, and who can get around all the deleterious effects of climate change.” - Source
"Give me a break!"
So anyway - I'm not denying climate change. However, climate change is so much more involved than air conditioning for poor people, I must say. Rich and poor alike will feel the effects of climate change...
BUT IT'S NOT ABOUT AIR CONDITIONING!
Evidently he still believes in sin - that's a good sign.
Although Fr. Beck has held some controversial views on other stuff - issues more immediate than climate change. Such as homosexuality and Catholic teaching. In 2011, another priest, Courage chaplain Fr. Richard Perozich responded to a 2010 CBS article by Fr. Beck on the sexual abuse of minors by priests saying, 'Father Beck's commentary expresses an opinion not in accord with Catholic truth.'
Yeah, but what did Pat Sajak say?
“I now believe global warming alarmists are unpatriotic racists knowingly misleading for their own ends. Good night.” He tweeted.So? He was going to bed, maybe he took Ambien? Maybe he was drunk? Maybe he's just old? He can tweet/say whatever he wants. There are much bigger sins people.
