Global warming activists are applying pressure to EWTN, the global Catholic Television network to stop broadcasting the views of climate skeptics. The left-leaning ‘social justice’ group, Faithful America, has started a petition to EWTN (Eternal World Television Network) to ban what they term ‘climate deniers’ from the network.

(Note: The movement to ban skeptics from television and media reporting on climate change has intensified in the past year. See: ‘Merchants of Doubt’ director pushing to ban Morano & other skeptics from TV.)

The activists are upset about a recent debate between Climate Depot publisher Marc Morano and the Environmental Defense Fund lobbyist Carol Andress.

The debate dealt with the Vatican and Pope Francis’ efforts to promote a United Nations global warming treaty.

The group sent out an appeal on May 27, urging EWTN to ‘Stop broadcasting climate denial

One of the world’s largest Catholic media outlets is accusing Pope Francis of confusing Catholics by preparing a ground-breaking encyclical urging world leaders to tackle climate change.

In a recent segment, Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN) even invited notorious climate denier Marc Morano to “debate” whether climate change is real. Worse yet, EWTN host Raymond Arroyo questioned man-made climate change and claimed that the pope was somehow supporting abortion by meeting with the United Nations about climate change.

It’s time for Catholic media outlets like EWTN to stop making common cause with right-wing political activists to undermine Pope Francis — and stop spreading misinformation about the climate crisis.

Pope Francis has issued a prophetic call to recognize the scientific reality of climate change and how the destruction of God’s creation is harming the world’s poorest people. Please stop offering a platform for climate deniers to spread misinformation and undermine the pope’s moral leadership.
