Should polluting the earth and its atmosphere regarded as a mortal sin by the Catholic Pope?
I feel The Catholic Pope speaks so many things on so many relevant and irrelevant things. Why should He not declare that polluting the atmosphere and earth be regarded as a Mortal sin not deserving forgiveness?
hmmm...maybe because everybody on earth is polluting earth. Sweating, farting, or even just throwing your trash in the trashcan is considered as polluting earth even though they only have minor effects. And not deserving forgiveness is a bit harsh.I mean Christ did sacrifice himself to forgive even those people who did much more than polluting earth.
When everyone is contributing to the carbon footprint, how will the Pope have the clout to declare it a sin? It would be presumptuous.
Well... I don't think that it's as straightforward as that. First of all, I think what you mean is more so up to the Catholic Church/Faith ... it's not supposed to be what the Pope says, it's supposed to be what is in the best interests of protecting humanity's morality and ethics.
Going from that, I'd say that though not necessarily "mortal sins", the behavior that causes this pollution is clearly recognized in the Seven Deadly Sins (or Cardinal Sins) in the Catholic faith: Wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony. The most obvious would be Greed, lust, and gluttony, with arguments to be made to easily include the others.
