Pope Francis on Environment Destruction: ‘This is Our Sin’

Pope Francis condemned the exploitation of the environment at a recent public appearance calling it a modern sin.

“When I look at America, also my own homeland (South America), so many forests, all cut, that have become land … that can longer give life. This is our sin, exploiting the Earth and not allowing her to her give us what she has within her,” said the Argentine Pope during a speech at the university of Molise, in southern Italy. “This is one of the greatest challenges of our time: to convert ourselves to a type of development that knows how to respect creation.”

Students, farmers and laid off workers were all in attendance and heard the Pope’s unplanned remarks. Now Francis, who took his name from the 13th century canonized Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals and the environment, is penning a letter to all bishops of the catholic church about the relationship between man and nature.

So far, scientists and environmentalists have been ignored. We hope Pope Francis can convince the world to take care of our planet.
