US Right tells Pope to shut up on climate change

Now look who's saying religion and science are incompatible:
But the effort [by Pope Francis] is already angering a number of American conservatives, among them members of the Heartland Institute, a libertarian group partly funded by the Charles G. Koch Foundation, run by the billionaire industrialist Koch brothers, who oppose climate policy. 
“The Holy Father is being misled by ‘experts’ at the United Nations who have proven unworthy of his trust,” Joseph Bast, the president of the Heartland Institute, said in an interview. “Though Pope Francis’ heart is surely in the right place, he would do his flock and the world a disservice by putting his moral authority behind the United Nations’ unscientific agenda on the climate.”
Walker has long been a Koch brothers favorite and is apparently their 2016 presidential candidate; the Heartland Institute sponsored a $250-per-ticket dinner for Walker in 2013, and last year took credit for pushing Walker to more strongly oppose Common Core school curricula.

These people must have forgotten that the incumbent Pope took the name Francis, not Pope Keystone XL.

They need to Google "St. Francis."

Doesn't it just figure that they would try to take down the Catholic Church?

Walker and his funders talk directly to GOD themselves, they don't need no middleman like The Pope. That Pope guy is startin' to talk like Jesus Christ of Nazareth anyhow, you know, be kind and help the poor blah blah blah blah blah.

The US right plans on writing a NEW NEW TESTAMENT which will be much like Al Franklin's "Supply Side Jesus" ( but won't be intended as parody. Scott Walker is auditioning for the new role of Son of Man and our new Savior.

Scott Walker and the money changers that are behind him HATE the Biblical Jesus.
