From the only reliable source of Catholic news on the net, Eye of the Tiber:
In a strategic attempt to speak about abortion at the White House without being “lambasted” by the media Wednesday, Pope Francis spent the majority of his time substituting the words “environment” and “climate change” for the actual subject of his address: abortion.
“It seems clear to me that abortion, I mean climate change, is a problem which can no longer be left to a future generation,” Francis said, catching his gaffe, the first of many, during the talk. “Mr. President, I find it encouraging that you are proposing an initiative for reducing abortions, excuse me…that is, air pollution,” Francis said. “Accepting the urgency, it seems clear to me also that killing babies in the womb, sorry, I had a long flight…I meant climate change is a problem which can no longer be left to a future generation.”
Francis twice quoted his own encyclical on the environment, which many believe was actually an encyclical on abortion.
“When it comes to the care of our ‘common home’, which is not unlike that of a womb if you kinda think about it, not that I’m talking about abortion right now, of course, we are living at a critical moment of history,” he said. “We still have time to make the changes needed to bring about an end to this genocide…excuse me, did I say genocide? Weird. By genocide, I meant, a sustainable and integral development, for we know that things can change. Such change demands on our part a serious and responsible recognition of the kind of world we may be leaving to our children. Children that are procreated from the love of a man and a woman, and that are defenseless inside their mother wombs and should be protected from abor…climate change.”
When called in his hotel room for comment, the Pope responded, “Aren’t you the gringo who said I am a worse pope than Alexander VI?”
Actually Holiness I said that you were the worst pope since Alexander VI.
“Am I better than John XII?”
“What if I performed an exorcism on Nancy Pelosi?”
You would then rank at the level of Pius VII.
“Not Pio Nono?”
Let’s not push things Holiness.
