Just when you thought LA couldn’t be any worse…
I copy this sickening thing from the website, my comments on the bottom:
LA Archdiocese Goes Green; Launches First Environmental Committee To ‘green’ Parishes
Today, October 4th, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of ecology, Cardinal Roger Mahony announced that the Archdiocese of Los Angeles will “go green” through a newly established Creation Sustainability Ministry.
“We have been given the responsibility to care for our land and environment for future generations,” said Cardinal Mahony. “Our new Creation Sustainability Ministry will help each of our 288 parishes to go green, so that our Catholic community can help to preserve these great gifts God has given us.”
The newly created ministry will be spearheaded by the Creation Sustainability Committee comprised of green-minded Catholic parishioners, priests, community members, environmentalists and social justice minded people from throughout the Archdiocese. The committee will assist parishes in becoming more sustainable. It will also encourage Catholics to take action in local creation care issues that affect the most poor and vulnerable of the Archdiocese, such as giving our low income communities access to clean safe transportation and improved air quality.
The Archdiocese will have five regional celebrations launching the new Creation Sustainability Ministry with the hopes of reaching out to all five million Catholics in the three counties spanning the Archdiocese.
Following is the list of regional celebrations presided by their Auxiliary Bishop:

1. Really, I mean really, I thought His Eminence was supposed to be leaving. I should have known that H.E. would be trying to cast a shadow over the new Archbishop…(oh wait, he already did that by building the Rog Mahal with custom seating)
2. Going green is apart of this new environwackoism religion. We’re going to replace regular working lightbulbs with CFL’s with Hg in them. (Hg = Mercury for you non science folks). Down right worshiping the environment in some cases (who can forget that tree video), what happened to trust in God? Oh wait, Obama’s the messiah, nevermind :p
3. Poor St Francis, he’s been hijacked and transformed into this nature worshiping, religious indifferent kumbaya Saint. Real St Francis would be ticked if this was going on and want everyone loyal to the Pope and the Church. He was after all a deacon.
4. Good thing I’m not bishop, I would have silenced Mahony and prevented him from doing anything.
