Great new show concept: A Muslim and a rabbi get together to praise the Pope!
Rabbi Michael Lerner, America’s best-known progressive Jewish voice, who occasionally advises Hillary Clinton, says the Pope’s new encyclical “Laudato Si’“might “save the planet“:

“Pope Francis’ Laudato Si plea for environmental sanity and a serious recommitment to the Bible’s call for humanity to be stewards of this planet earth just might make a huge difference by puncturing through the emotional depression that keeps most of the people of the earth paralyzed in face of the growing crisis. You don’t have to be religious or Catholic to join us in supporting the direction he outlines in his important call.”

Despite a few holes in the Pope’s encyclical – he doesn’t really discuss the usurious banking system, deep state, or military-industrial-intelligence complex – I agree with Rabbi Lerner that Pope Francis’s latest message to the world could help save it.

At the end of the show, Rabbi Lerner expresses skepticism about the official story of 9/11, but says he isn’t yet persuaded that the same concerns apply to the Charlie Hebdo events of last January. I hope to speak with him when I’m in Berkeley on my Charlie Hebdo book tour and convince him to take a harder look at the book he contributed to!

(See my earlier article on how Rabbi Lerner was ambushed by the Jewish Chronicle for contributing to We Are NOT Charlie Hebdo.)

    kevin, you can not be serious? You are backing the pope? after reading the comments, not much I can add to it, except after the “churches” for centuries killed the native locals everywhere, you fall for this guy. I see a “plan” here, the pope is setting the stage, something is going to happen, and they are setting the stage for people to look towards them for answers, have we not had enough of this. I try to respect individual choices in “religion”. But, if one believes in one “god” their god of their “religion”, you are part of the problem

    Rabbi speak with pork tongue.

    Noblesse oblige abandoned; the Mandate of Heaven manifests (and I don’t mean the pope).

    It is easier for a man to change the world than to change his mind.

    When the people of the West use words “we, the world, the international community” most of the time they are living in the unrealistic world of self projected imagination. I don’t believe that some Kazakhstani farmers or Vietnamese rice farmers are at all concerned with what the people of State Deparment or Catholic church address urbi et orbi. Nor are they responsible to be picked on.

    Everything we have expected to come from the West, the religious piety, the moral order, the progressive human kind, the peace efforts, economic sustainability, is inevitably failing and we are forced to seek it elsewhere. Western politicians, prima donna’s, religious leaders and ideologists are feeding with their own excrement of failed falsely justifiable peace and sustainability efforts, proving there is no such thing as “international community” (non-existent, a vacuum phrase), only alive when inside the borders of the western thought. The mental slaves of the West will obviously have no other option but to switch from the West to the East, eyeing the culture, religious bridges and economic thought. The Pope has recently begun the process of extending the efforts to unite with the Orthodox in certain perspectives of the Christian faith. World bankers are eyeing Asia as the new economic hub and libertarians are screaming “death to NATO” and such movements.

    There’s a reason why the Zionists freak out and send vandals or Jewish Chronicle ambush journalists after Rabbi Lerner when he contributes to my books. His participation in these projects helps send the message to a broader audience, which is what they’re afraid of.

    Thousands of tribes of people, who practiced and taught the arts of natural conservancy, were decimated by black robes and soldiers. Their leaders were killed and the information snuffed out to a heinous degree. To now come forward with this paper, makes the ‘church” the greatest hypocrite in history. There was no apology, no recognition, no mercy, and even today the pope can return items that were stolen and does no such thing. To pretend to now be a force of good for nature, and to preach the stewardship of the earth, is laughable and insidiously disingenuous.
    I do applaud the inter-faith approach, but if it is not done with honesty, then ultimately it only serves to make strange bedfellows of the religions, which has been predicted since they arrived with guns and books. It is a sign of the unveiling, exposure, and long awaited end, of the triad of death.
    Christianity and anti-environmentalism paired with genocide and re-education is the forerunner of our current mess. The tip of the sword was the mass killing of wise and good elders by this same church who now claims to be the holy steward of earth. People would do well to remember that the Catholic view is that satan rules the material earth. The only religion to incorporate an evil devil as omnipotent. The 3 will pair, and eat each others children. Only then can peace come to life on this planet. If Francis is a spiritual man, then he plays for the wrong team.
    Have they now changed this view ?

    This Pope is a gutless wretch which is why he was selected. I’m going to write to him and thank him, it will read like this: Thank you Holy Father for not mentioning that the Rothschild Khazarian Mafia did 9-11. It would make the Jews mad. And thank you for not talking about how the Jews put the German people into REAL torture, death camps after WW II ( not work camps ) and killed millions of them. It would make the Jews mad. And thank you for not denouncing the Holohoax which gives the Jews permanent victim status and is their always-at the-ready guilt weapon. It would just make the Jews mad. And thank you for not denouncing the fraud of private central banking and the sin of usury. It would make the Jews mad. And thank you for not pointing out their control of the lying media and smutty entertainment industry, the think tanks, academia, the politicians and much of what’s left.

    The involvement of Jews in the environmental movement smells like a hustle probably related to owning shares in the company on the Chicago stock exchange that flogs carbon taxes. The most powerful Jew environmentalist is Toronto billioniare Robert Schad who get moneys from the Harper government for his Schad Foundation that asks kids for more money. Schad is the former owner of Husky injection Moulding which he sold to Gerry Schwartz. His plastic injection machines produced 80 billion bottles per year in the USA alone and replaced recyclable green technology such as glass bottles and paper bags. He has probably done more to pollute all the oceans of the world than any other human in history. Jews have never been intereted in conservation. The only wildlife in Israel are their national birds, the vultures, which they feed on Palestinian children.
