Bishop: Protect The Environment, But Climate Change Skepticism Is OK


Springfield’s Catholic bishop says the faithful have a moral obligation to be good stewards of the environment… but not necessarily to accept that climate change is a manmade phenomenon.

Bishop Thomas John Paprocki is reacting to a document from Pope Francis directing Catholics to prevent environmental degradation.

Paprocki issued a statement saying Catholics must protect the Earth, but also have latitude to ask questions and develop judgments about how best to do so.
