News reports on Pope Benedicts recent statement on the environment left out significant quotes relating the Churchs grave misgivings of the modern environmental movement. True, the Pope supports efforts to promote a greater sense of ecological responsibility -- but only those that would safeguard an authentic human ecology and thus forcefully reaffirm the inviolability of human life at every stage and in every condition, the dignity of the person and the unique mission of the family, where one is trained in love of neighbour and respect for nature.
For a good analysis of how the mainstream media is spinning the Popes World Day of Peace message -- and for important quotes you wont read elsewhere -- see John-Henry Westens editorial in LifeSiteNews.com.
