“Dear XXXX and Mike, One would have to understand that the Pope is only deemed infallible in matters of faith and morals and even then only under some very narrow guidelines…

…Infallible statements have only been made twice or three times in the past 150 years.  With this understanding in mind the following is a humorous way a faithful (not cafeteria) Catholic might consider the Popes latest boner!  Encyclicals may or may not be issued with the intent of being infallible (this one was not!).

I will round up some good analysis for everyone when I get time.  However, in the meantime please don’t fear good Catholics can still use our air conditioners.

Subject: One-Line Response to Encylical

In Brideshead Revisited, a character named Rex is seeking to enter the Church. The priest asks him what he would say if the Pope declared that it was raining, when really it was sunny. He replied, “I guess you would say it is a sort of raining spiritually, only we are too sinful to see it.”

Thus, “It would seem that the globe is sort of warming spiritually, only we are too sinful to see it.”
