Pope Francis denounces climate change deniers

Pope Francis denounces climate change deniers

During the presidential campaign previous year, the pontiff said a person "who only thinks about building walls" is "not Christian".

The pope said he was unfamiliar with the specifics of the program, but that he hoped Trump could reverse his decision to end the protections that prevent the deportation of undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S.as minors.

"One hopes that is re-thought somewhat", replied the Pontiff.

"We could ask the pope to intervene directly for dialogue", said Venezuelan housewife Nancy Pugliese, 35, who attended Francis's visit in Cartagena.

Francis acknowledged that he had not studied the particulars of DACA, but said "removing young people from their family is not a thing that bears good fruit, neither for the young person nor the family". And who robs them of hope?

His biggest mistake, though, came in the third quarter when he misread coverage and threw to an area where Watt was waiting. The ball bounded into the end zone where it was recovered for a touchdown, the first of the day, in very Browns fashion.

As in the case of the magnitude 8.2 quake that on Thursday killed over 30 people in Mexico's Oaxaca and Chiapas states, the Caribbean storm "is leaving many victims and huge material damage in its wake", he said.

Francis also said during the press conference that political leaders have a moral responsibility to follow scientists' recommendations and reduce carbon emissions in order to stem the effects of climate change. "They speak very clearly", he said, referring to experts who blame global warming on man-made activities.

The large community of Venezuelan exiles in Colombia had been pushing Francis to make a strong statement against President Nicolas Maduro. "I was punched. I'm fine", the pope joked as he left a house in the poor neighborhood of San Francisco on the last day of his trip to Colombia. "And history will judge their decisions".

Eighty-year-old Francis welcomed the assembled crowd in the poor San Francisco neighborhood on the last day of his visit to Colombia when his vehicle pulled up brakes to prevent a man from standing in its way. "I'll tell you the truth, I don't really understand the world of geopolitics", he said.

"This holy blood is staying in Colombia", said Ricardo Morales, a lawyer who lined up outside St. Peter Claver's church for a glimpse of the pope. He also spoke about the humanitarian problems that are associated with mass migration, and the need to resolve the root causes of the immigration crisis.
