The Vatican has begun its two day mayor conference, where leftist mayors around the world have been invited to attend a stacked conference at the Vatican:
Dozens of environmentally friendly mayors from around the world are meeting at the Vatican Tuesday to bask in the star power of eco-Pope Francis and commit to reducing global warming and helping the urban poor deal with its effects.
It’s the latest — and perhaps most important — Vatican initiative to keep the momentum alive after Francis released his landmark environment encyclical and as governments head into crucial climate negotiations in Paris in December.
Already, the Vatican has engaged Nobel science laureates, global faith leaders, the U.N. leadership, eco-friendly businesses and even the self-described “secular Jewish feminist” and environmental advocate Naomi Klein to promote Francis’ message that caring for the Earth — and humanity — is an urgent moral imperative.
Now, the pope is turning to mayors, some 60 of whom signed up to attend the two-day meeting at the Vatican. Several belong to the new Carbon Neutral Cities Alliance, whose members have committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80 percent by 2050 or sooner.
Attending is Gov. Jerry Brown of California, which has enacted the toughest greenhouse gas emissions standards in North America, as well as the mayors of New York City, Boston, Oslo, Vancouver and Boulder, Colorado.

Leaving aside the Jesuit educated Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown, who is pro-abort and in favor of gay marriage, typical of the left wing loon mayors flocking to the Vatican is the Mayor of Seattle, Ed Murray. Ostensibly Catholic, Murray is a “married” homosexual. He carved a political career for himself in the Washington Legislature by being the champion of gay rights. He, of course, is also an ardent pro-abort. Aghast at the idea that a Chick-fil-a might open in Seattle in 2013, he recently has gained headlines by supporting efforts to have Seattle lenders offer Sharia-compliant home loans. (Sharia bans interest.) (So, aghast at Chick-fil-a and friendly to Sharia groups which, if they came to power, might likely have the mayor enjoying his gay rights as he plummets from the tallest building in Seattle.)
In order to gain momentum for the Pope’s Green Crusade, the powers that be at the Vatican are willing to make common cause with those who mock and attack core aspects of Catholic morality that the Church has held since the time of Christ. This sends a strong message to all Catholics who fight to preserve those values in a hostile Western World that, as far as the Vatican is concerned: You are on your own Jack and Jill!
