By Boycotting the Pope, Congressman Embarrasses His Church and Country

Millennial co-founder Christopher Hale has a new article at Crux. He writes:

Make no mistake: Francis believes that life begins at conception, but he knows it doesn’t end there. His call to care for creation isn’t part of some vast left-wing agenda, but a religious response to God’s ancient request to care to protect, sustain, and develop creation. In fact, it was Benedict XVI who was first dubbed by the media as the “green pope” for his groundbreaking environmental work as the Bishop of Rome

Would Gosar have boycotted Benedict as well?

What Francis, Benedict, and the Catholic Church get, but Paul Gosar fails to understand, is that caring for creation first and foremost is a religious issue. From the beginning of the Bible, God has asked humanity to be good stewards of all that God has given us: fresh water, clear air, and abundant harvest….

By making the juvenile decision to not even show up to listen to Pope Francis’ address to Congress, Gosar has the dubious distinction of embarrassing both his Church and his nation.

Perhaps that’s the logical consequence of anyone who has the audacity to suggest that they’re more Catholic than the pope.
