Pope Francis Warns About A Second ‘Great Flood’ Because Of Climate Change
Pope Francis has released a book that warns of a second flood if politicians do not address climate change.
The book is titled “Of Vice and Virtues.” In the book, Francis writes, “the Bible says that the flood is the result of God’s wrath. It is a figure of God’s wrath, who according to the Bible has seen too many bad things and decides to obliterate humanity.”
“The biblical flood, according to experts, is a mythical tale,” Francis says. “The flood is a historical tale, archaeologists say because they found traces of a flood in their excavations. … A great flood, perhaps due to a rise in temperature and the melting of the glaciers, is what will happen now if we continue along the same path,” he warns.
“God’s wrath is directed against injustice, against Satan,” the Pope says in the book.
The Italian Daily Corriere Della Sera reported on Sunday that the Pope said, “[The flood] is directed against evil, not that which derives from human weakness, but evil of Satanic inspiration: the corruption generated by Satan.”
The Pope pointed out a silver lining that God saved a few people alongside Noah.
“God unleashed his wrath, but he saw a righteous one, took him and saved him,” he says. “The story of Noah demonstrates that God’s wrath is also salvific.”
Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, Pope Francis’s predecessor, criticized Joe Biden and the Democrats’ glorification and normalization of abortion.
“It’s true, he’s Catholic and observant. And personally, he is against abortion,” Ratzinger told the newspaper. “But as president, he tends to present himself in continuity with the line of the Democratic Party. … And on gender politics we have not yet understood what his position is.”
In the early days of Biden sitting in the White House, he rescinded Trump’s “Mexico City Policy”, which banned taxpayer-funded abortions in foreign countries.
Archbishop Jose Gomez, President of The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, weighed in on Biden’s faith.
“Mr. Biden’s piety and personal story, his moving witness to how his faith has brought him solace in times of darkness and tragedy, his longstanding commitment to the Gospel’s priority for the poor — all of this I find hopeful and inspiring.”
Archbishop Gomez added, “I must point out that our new President has pledged to pursue certain policies that would advance moral evils and threaten human life and dignity, most seriously in the areas of abortion, contraception, marriage, and gender. Of deep concern is the liberty of the Church and the freedom of believers to live according to their consciences.”
