My forecast is for a strong, hot wind to be blowing out of Eden Prairie next Sunday night.
As if the Archdiocese of Mpls/St. Paul doesn't have enough to do in saving the souls of all the sinners in these parts, they've announced their participation in this crucial initiative:
The Office for Social Justice is proud to present Global Warming: A Catholic Perspective, an event we are co-sponsoring with Congregations Caring for Creation. This event kicks off a new level of Archdiocesan involvement to address the consequences of global warming: on the environment, the common good, and especially people in poverty.
I'm sure there won't be any partisan political implications to that presentation. Just in case, maybe George Soros will give the gang from Minnesota Monitor the night off from stalking Michele Bachmann and they'll send a few representatives over to make sure this speech meets with the approval of the Internal Revenue Service.
It gets worse ...
Featured speakers include Will Steger, polar explorer; Paul Douglas, WCCO meteorologist; and Dr. John Hart, Environmental theologian from Boston University.
Paul Douglas leading a Catholic seminar? What's next, Sven Sundgaard on Natural Family Planning? Sunny Haus on the theory of Just War Doctrine? Janie Peterson on the moral consequences of unemployment? (Cheap shot, forgive me Father ... )
