I think is where I begin to feel uneasy about religious faith and their influences. This is a quote from two adjacent paragraphs in the article on the Pope's current visit to the USA http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-34342971
The Pope had "fast-tracked" his canonisation [Friar Serra], meaning that there was no need to show proof of two miracles.
Earlier, the Pope called for further action on climate change saying that it was "a critical moment of history", on the first day of his visit to the US.
Within the space of a few words we go from the sheer ridiculous to the same person making a comment on policy that could affect the future of the planet and all of us. Irrespective of whether you agree with his position on climate change or not.
