I’m half Jewish and half Catholic, so I feel like it’s only HALF appropriate I cover this story. But on the other hand, I’m 100 percent green, so here it goes, baby:

Pope Benedict XVI used his Christmas homily to speak out against the destruction of our environment and human selfishness during the midnight mass at St Peter’s Basilica. During the homily, he stated, “Man is so preoccupied with himself, he has such urgent need of all the space and all the time for his own things, that nothing remains for others – for his neighbour, for the poor, for God.” Continuing, he added, “What would he (God) say if he could see the state of the world today, through the abuse of energy and its selfish and reckless exploitation?

The pope is considered to be the spiritual leader of about 1.1 and 1/2 billion Catholics (the half, being me) and just think how much help that homily could do if every last one of them really listened. You know it’s serious when the Vatican goes green.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
