More hot air from Bergoglio…

Antipope Francis

Apostolic Exhortation Laudate Deum
on the Climate Crisis

October 4, 2023

The Vatican’s text factory has just released another ‘magisterial’ document: Jorge Bergoglio (a.k.a. ‘Pope Francis’) has published his latest ‘Apostolic exhortation’. It bears the name Laudate Deum (“Praise God”) and concerns itself with an alleged global ‘climate crisis’.

Unlike many other ‘papal’ documents in recent times, this particular one is fairly short, at least judging by Bergoglian standards. In its English version, Laudate Deum comes in at a measly 7,100 words. It is divided into 6 chapters and has 73 numbered paragraphs, with a total of 44 footnotes.

The most notable footnote is probably n. 22: “Cf. War, Progress and the End of History, Including a Short Story of the Anti-Christ. Three Discussions by Vladimir Soloviev, London, 1915, p. 197.” The vast majority of the other footnotes are to Francis’ environmental encyclical Laudato Si’, to which the current text is considered to be a sequel of sorts.

Footnote n. 41 also deserves a special mention. It refers the reader to pp. 205-249 of the book When Species Meet, published in 2007 by eco-feminist Donna J. Haraway (b. 1944). The book description given by the publisher concludes: “Ultimately, [the author] finds that respect, curiosity, and knowledge spring from animal-human associations and work powerfully against ideas about human exceptionalism.”

Not a single footnote is to the real Catholic magisterium from before Vatican II, by the way. (You may close your jaw again now.)

The Vatican has made the text of Laudate Deum available in sundry languages, of which we make the following available via direct links:
