BREAKING: Schellnhuber Appointed to Pontifical Academy of Science
Why exactly would the pope select an atheist and a population control guru to sit on a pontifical council? If somebody can't even get the first principle (God exists!) right, how can he be trusted to get anything else right? And if he thinks there are too many people on the planet and thinks we need to get rid of about six billion of them, why is he not dismissed as an enemy of the poor. Let's face it; these people ALWAYS talk about overpopulation in the THIRD WORLD. Elimination of the poor through exporting abortion and contraception is a major priority. And the U.N., whose agenda this guy champions, is an expert at promoting the culture of death. Doctors in the Third World describe shelves filled with contraceptive pill packets and abortion machines while they have no antibiotics or anti-diarrhea medicine. Ah...but they care about the planet!
It's true that Jesus chose a betrayer as an apostle. But Judas didn't have a history of betrayal from the beginning. He only took the thirty pieces of silver in the last few days before the crucifixion. Schellnhuber, on the other hand holds positions so antithetical to Church teaching they should disqualify his participation in writing any Church document. So...what exactly makes an atheist who thinks the planet can only sustain one billion people and wants one-world government (not under Christ the King obviously) a fit spokesman for the Vatican?
Schellnhuber isn't the first controversial member named to the Academy and Pope Francis isn't the first to make a head-scratching appointment. (See here.) Nevertheless, this latest baffling act is not likely to bolster the confidence of orthodox Catholics in the wisdom of Pope Francis. As my mom often said, "You can know a man by the company he keeps." An atheist spokesman for the Church is a contradiction of the first order.
