Catholic Archbishop George Pell is out of touch on climate change.

Pell’s out of touch with everything! One of Pell’s comments on the issue:

“My task as a Christian leader is to engage with reality, to contribute to debate on important issues, to open people’s minds…”

The article I’ve referenced was written by Anglican Bishop Browning, it’s nice to know that at least some religious people have got it right., and are prepared to attack other religious leaders. Perhaps we should make him an honorary atheist?

There were three letters to the editor in response to this, they can be read here, scroll down to ‘Get real, Dr Pell’. These were also in the printed version of the paper today, good to see the Sydney Morning Herald are happy to post quite atheistic letters.

    If he was engaged with reality, he wouldn’t BE a Christian leader in the first bloody place.

    and this,

    “…to open people’s minds and to point out when the emperor is wearing few or no clothes”

    So Pell’s leaving the church then? Good!
    Oops , I forgot that religious hypocrisy doesn’t extend to religion itself, just to everything else.

    An oxymoron and hypocrisy in one sentence! Oh wait, this IS the church we’re talking about. *surprise flickers out*

    Frankly, I’m unperturbed by any statements made by those in authority in the RCC. Every time they open their mouths, it’s like another million litres of water gushing into the hold of the Titanic :)
