Rome: All 31 active bishops from Chile signed a document offering to resign after Pope Francis shamed them for ignoring or covering up sex abuse in the local churches. The Pope blamed the sex abuse on the fact that it was the practice of many bishops to send homosexual priests to teach at seminaries. The Pope himself has been implicated in the scandal because he appointed Juan Barros to the office of bishop over the objections of his victims. It is not expected that the Pope will accept the offer of resignation.
When President Trump visited the Vatican this week, the Pope gave him his encyclical on climate change. An encyclical is a document by the Pope that expresses his personal opinion. The encyclical on climate change was written by globalists who are collectivists, depopulation advocates, and whose reverence for Gaia (Mother Earth) is on a par with any pagan religion.
