Pope Benedict XVI: The ‘Green’ Pope And His Eco-Legacy
« on: February 11, 2013, 09:30:56 PM »
There's the Green Patriarch; and now we have the Green Pope:

Quote
Dubbed “the Green Pope” for his interest in environmental issues, Benedict XVI helped to author several books that share his views on the real meaning of progress and development, and what that means for our planet of limited resources. In 2009, Ten Commandments for the Environment was released by Ave Maria Press. In it, journalist Woodeene Koenig-Bricker weaves together Pope Benedict’s key statements on environmental justice, and offers commentary that helps to unpack the Ten Commandments for the Environment, which had only recently been released by the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace. Then in 2012, Pope Benedict published The Environment, which shares his thoughts on everyone’s right to food, right to water and responsible sharing.

We all have an El Guapo to face. Be brave, and fight like lions!

Pope Benedict is the Greenest among equals.

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

I'll accept that as long as you don't mean he has Green Supremacy.

Of course the Pope of Rome is greener than the Orthodox bishops.  He is green in ordinary time while the Orthodox bishops are only green twice a year.

That looks more of a turquoise hue.

There is only one green pope, only one who was named so by Al Gore, and he does not share power.

Who needs the filioque when you can debate about who's the greenest?
