Pope Francis Tells European Youth to “Embrace Life of Simplicity” and Give Up Meat to Save the World

The Bishop of Rome, Vicar of Jesus Christ, Successor of the Prince of the Apostles, Supreme Pontiff of the Universal Church, and Primate of Italy apparently thinks that faith in Christ and living a traditional Christian life isn’t enough to save the world. Rather, he has a profoundly different idea of how the world should be saved, one that he recently informed the youth of the world of:  Give up eating meat and “embrace a life of simplicity.

Apparently, or at least according to Franicnot eating meat will stop climate change, and then the world will be saved. Crux News reported on that recent statement of the Pope’s, reporting:

Francis argued that if young generations don’t succeed in turning the world’s ongoing “self-destructive trend around, it will be difficult for others to do so in the future.”

“Don’t let yourselves be seduced by the sirens that propose a life of luxury reserved for a small slice of the world,” he said, inviting them to instead have a “broad outlook” that can take in all the rest of humanity, “which is much bigger than our little continent.”

That was then followed by the meat comment, with the Pinko Pope saying “There is an urgent need to reduce the consumption not only of fossil fuels but also of so many superfluous things. In certain areas of the world, too, it would be appropriate to consume less meat: This too can help save the environment.

Who knew the Pope was so focused on “climate change”? One would think he’d be more focused on saving souls than saving cows, but apparently not.

For the Love of News reported on the issue as well, noting Francis has been focused on the environment for years now:

In 2015, Francis became the first pope in history to devote an entire encyclical letter to the topic of the environment with the publication of Laudato Si (“Praised Be”), urging Christians to become more ecologically aware. In that speech, he also talked about the failure to recycle paper and other resources while calling climate change “a global problem with grave implications” and “one of the principal challenges facing humanity in our day.” But it wasn’t until his speech last week that the Pope touched on the subject of eating less meat. We can’t help but notice the timing for such a speech when the whole world is suffering from supply shortages attributable to one failed administration, if we are being honest.

Mark 7:18-19 from the New Testament tells us, “There is nothing outside the man which can defile him if it goes into him; but the things which proceed out of the man are what defile the man.” I wholeheartedly agree.

And beyond the generally liberal nature of his “eat less meat” comment, one that would seem less out of place on the lips of WEF hacks like Klaus Schwab than the Bishop of Rome, it’s not at all based on the Bible, which tells people of the faith they can eat as much meat as they want. That comes from Deuteronomy 12:15, which states:

Nevertheless, you may slaughter your animals in any of your towns and eat as much of the meat as you want, as if it were gazelle or deer, according to the blessing the Lord your God gives you. Both the ceremonially unclean and the clean may eat it.

Further, there is Acts 10:91-6, in which Peter has a dream about what animals can be eaten by Christians. As those verses provide:

The next day at about the sixth hour,c as the men were approaching the city on their journey, Peter went up on the roof to pray. 10He became hungry and wanted something to eat, but while the meal was being prepared, he fell into a trance. He saw heaven open and something like a large sheet being let down to earth by its four corners. 12It contained all kinds of four-footed animals and reptiles of the earth, as well as birds of the air. 13Then a voice said to him: “Get up, Peter, kill and eat!” “No, Lord!” Peter answered. “I have never eaten anything impured or unclean.” The voice spoke to him a second time: “Do not call anything impure that God has made clean.” This happened three times, and all at once the sheet was taken back up into heaven.

So perhaps the Pope should take some time off from worrying about the angry sun monster and go back to reading the Bible, which has a very different stance on the meat issue.
