The pope issued a call in his Sunday angelus for the faithful to start paying some attention to the earth as the ramifications of ignoring it are unacceptable at a social level:
The man may be the figurehead of one of the wealthiest organizations on earth, but that doesn't preclude him from being right. All sorts might take a hint from Pope Benedict regardless of their opinion of his orthodoxy.
It's not a fully fleshed motivation for supporting environmentalism or fighting poverty, but high profile mention of the effect the two have on one another, from a churchman who actually considers them important, gets major kudos from me.
Does anybody know where to get transcripts of archival papal sermons? In English?
edit: The English version is now online, but without the post-angelus paragraph - only the English greeting. Odd.
