"Pope: Destroying the Earth Is a Sin"

"Pope Francis made the biblical case for mitigating the effects of climate change, speaking to a massive crowd in Rome.

In his brief speech, Francis issued a dire warning about the effects of climate change.

'Safeguard Creation,' he said, according to Think Progress, 'because if we destroy Creation, Creation will destroy us! Never forget this!'"
