Pope Francis tells young Europeans they need to eat less meat

His Holiness Pope Francis is demanding that young Europeans stop eating so much meat in a bid to save the planet from climate change.

In a letter to the participants of the EU Youth Conference, Pope Francis advocated that young Europeans look at the planet as a “common home” that needs protecting. He says that one way to do this is for Europeans to give up “superfluous things,” like meat consumption, to turn a “self-destructive trend around.”

“If you do not succeed in turning this self-destructive trend around, it will be difficult for others to do so in the future… There is an urgent need to reduce the consumption not only of fossil fuels but also of so many superfluous things. In certain areas of the world, too, it would be appropriate to consume less meat: this too can help save the environment,” Pope Francis wrote.

Pope Francis was previously offered $1 million to a charity of his choosing by vegan activist Genesis Butler to go vegan for Lent. While the Pope responded to the letter, he, unsurprisingly, refused the offer.

As the old proverb goes, it looks like it’s ‘Do as I say, not as I do.’ Not a good look for the Bishop of Rome, who’s often accused of being a Communist and serves as an Agenda Contributor at the World Economic Forum.
