Funny how stirred up so many people got over this encyclical The Pope is teaching an ecology in radical departure from standard western Liberal orthodoxy It is a theological ecology it is a social ecology It is not anthropocentric it is not Green ideology The weird thing is that it is not anything truly new that is to say anything in departure from Catholic traditionI wonder how much of an effect it will have I doubt liberals who love paying lipservice to green ideology will step up to the challenge to actually live responsibly And I doubt conservatives who pay lipservice to religious authority and God s supremacy will step up eitherTime will tellI do agree with one reviewer who criticized the work as being literally mundane The Holy Father takes time to give practical advice on how to save energy and so forth addressing small issues previously unsuited to the Encyclical format and appropriately treated by the local Episcopal conferences he freuently citesI don t know what I think about the causes or extent of global climate change But neither the encyclical nor Papal authority hinge upon the claims it makes about the subject

Public theology in this work of Pope Francis is overtly collaborative His footnotes are as likely to refer not only to Catholic tradition especially Francis and Bonaventure and to previous popes writings but to the public statements of regional and national bishops conferences I ve heard it shrewdly suggested that Francis is giving himself political cover by letting his brother bishops make many of his controversial points for him but the effect is less the scholar or politician covering his bases than the leader determined to speak on behalf of his whole constituencyOfficial church documents throughout the Christian ecumene tend to make unexceptionable doctrinal claims in bland language Francis writing in Laudato Si mostly lacks the flair of Naomi Klein in This Changes Everything or Tink Tinker in American Indian Liberation writing on related themes Nevertheless his positions on the urgency of climate change and the priority of indigenous land rights arguably meet the stiff political tests those two would pose Indeed Klein has apparently met with Francis at the Vatican a moment I would never have expected in her late 90s heyday or even nowThe toughest test for Francis to my eye comes from those strains of eco feminism that claim catholic Christianity is too patriarchal in practice andor metaphysics ever to develop a planetary consciousness or treat the earth with justice and care I have in mind here Catherine Keller who is perhaps not a perfect example but others could be multiplied But Francis too poses a challenge to that mode of theology in the comprehensiveness of his ecological program I would love to see a overt dialogue between those points of view if only so I can teach it and sooner rather than laterreview Laudato si'

An interesting book Most of the attention on this book right now is about climate change and the Pope declaring it is real caused by humans and needs to be dealt with The discussion about climate change is only a small part of this book Treating the earth with dignity and treating the poor with dignity are really the main themes Selfish greed is bad while not calling out particular companies I can t help but think that both Monsanto with its stranglehold over seeds and Nestle with it s water business are two companies in the Pope s cross hairsEven architecture is talked about with one memorable passageIf architecture reflects the spirit of an age our megastructures and drab apartment blocks express the spirit of globalized technology where a constant flood of new products coexists with a tedious monotony
