In an interview yesterday on the Family Research Council’s “Washington Watch” program, Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., railed against Pope Francis and other Christian leaders who have addressed the human influence on climate change.
Inhofe told FRC President Tony Perkins that the pope’s recent encyclical on climate science will encourage other Christian leaders to come “out of the closet” to “tell the truth” about climate change. Of course, “the truth,” according to Inhofe, is that climate change is a myth: “The science is still out on what effect CO2 might have in terms of what they call global warming and the science is more on our side than on their side.”
The Republican senator maintained that the Bible prophesied the pope’s climate change encyclical.
“We were warned this was going to happen,” Inhofe said. “Romans 1:25 said there would be a time when people would start worshiping the creation instead of the Creator, and that exactly is what’s been going on, the trend that has been going on today. The interesting thing is that all of those people on the other side are the extreme liberals that are against everything that you and I stand for. This is a highly political environment we’re in right now that should not have been brought into the Catholic Church or any other church.”
Inhofe, who chairs the Senate’s Committee on Environment and Public Works, previously said that the Bible refutes climate change.
