Global Poverty and Warming together!

Wow.. isn't this the most PROFOUND thing:
"“This is an emergency,” Mr Gore told the opening session of the Clinton Global Initiative. “I think that the key to fighting global poverty is to have the wealthy nations and the developing nations join together to reduce global warming … I think what we need is a global Marshall plan to make the creation of jobs around the reduction of carbon the central principle for how we develop this.”

Gore bless you, Sister. It is wonderful to see Albert the Great taking on the military-industrial complex single handedly.

Actually, I think reducing the number of carbon-based organisms (read: people) would go a long way to accomplishing this!

hey, Cygnus is right!

We Albigensians have always believed that material existence is corrupt and evil, that Satan created this world as his own, and so it is wrong to bring any more children into this bad world.

We must all refrain from eating meat and dairy products, because they are part of the life created by the evil one. Only in death will we become true spirits, clean and holy.

So hey, it's all about reducing our carbon footprint really - that's why the so-called Pope killed my ancestors, because he was afraid of the power of the Earth Mother.

It's just a pity that our Albigensian faith is couched in such old-style language - it makes us sound like Traddy Fascists. What I need is some help on re-stating it in the Spirit of Vatican II.
