Fun story. Today, the Pope's long-awaited climate change speech leaked. Apparently Beyonce can keep an entire album with a matching music video for each on the hush, but the Pope doesn't know how to lock his Macbook screen.
Regardless, here's some awesome tidbits (as the Vatican stresses the document is not final) to chew on as we contemplate whether anyone really ACTUALLY gives a shit what the Pope says anymore. Or if they just say they do:
This is super exciting for a variety of reasons:
1. The POPE just dropped some science. Science. Man, I love this Pope.
2. While not the majority, a shitload of Congress is Catholic (or claims to be). Protestants still lead the way by a huge margin, but the point is: it'd sure be nice to see these fuckers answer to the man closest to God, instead of the checkbooks of coal and oil.
3. Maybe MOST exciting is that six of nine current Supreme Court justices claim to be Catholic, and two GOP presidential candidates do the same.
So what's it gonna be, folks? Your God or your slush fund? Listen to your God. You could make a lot of polar bears very, very happy.
Maybe we should all write to our Catholic congresspeople and ask.
