Our homily this morning centered on many things that caused a stir among some of the laity.
The priest harkened back to the “fact” of climate change and used the Pope’s chemistry degree as justification of proof. As if the ‘belief’ in man made climate change was somehow a dogma of the church.
He also used the ‘profit-driven economy’ line numerous times. Profits in and of themselves are not and can not be immoral.
I’m sorry but when told in a homily that to be a good Catholic I need to reduce my carbon footprint and when I am told in a homily that a scientific question is settled fact I think a line has been crossed.
- What to do about this at the parish level
- What is the apologetic understanding for not having to agree or believe everything a priest says… Or disagreeing with the premise or message of a homily.
