Well of course.

John Kerry Praises Pope Francis for Letter Slamming U.S. over Carbon Emissions

Reports the story:

“ROME — John Kerry has congratulated Pope Francis for a new letter on the ‘climate crisis’ in which the pope calls out the United States for its high per capita carbon emissions.

On Thursday, Mr. Kerry — U.S. special presidential envoy for Climate — applauded the pontiff for his ‘powerful words’ in Laudato Deum (Praise God), urging that the pope’s message ‘should be heard by all.’ 

In particular, Kerry held up the pope’s allegation that the earth is ‘nearing the breaking point,’ his assertion that diplomacy ‘must be part of the solution,’ and his hope that COP28 will mark ‘a change of direction’ and not just ‘pasting and papering over cracks.’ 

‘His Holiness should be heard by all when he writes we can only solve this crisis if we can ‘count on the commitment of all,’ Kerry added in his post on social media.

The pope’s letter, published Wednesday, slammed skeptics of climate alarmism and singled out the United States by name for its contribution to climate change.”

There should be no surprise here. This Pope is your basic Leftist. Here is no less than the New York Times reporting: https://www.nytimes.com/2023/10/03/world/europe/pope-francis-synod-conservatives.html

Conservative Catholics, Relegated to Sidelines, Denounce Papal Gathering

As bishops and laypeople from around the world prepared to gather at the Vatican, traditionalist Catholics who would not be among them staged their own show.

Which is to say, the issue of the Pope’s left-leaning views that has arisen at this gathering of “bishops and laypeople from around the world” is not limited to internal issues of the faith. It now includes his stance on climate change, his position drawing praise from John Kerry.

But of course it did.
