"Ecology of Man"

His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI has spoken of the need to not only "defend the earth, water, air, as gifts of the creation that belongs to all of us" but also to "protect the human being from his own destruction" — Pontiff Calls for "Ecology of Man".

"It is not outmoded metaphysics when Church speaks of the nature of the human being as man and woman, and demands that this order of creation be respected," he said. "What is often expressed and understood by the term 'gender,' is definitively resolved in the self-emancipation of the human being from creation and the Creator. Man wants to create himself, and to decide always and exclusively on his own about what concerns him." He added, "The rain forests certainly deserve our protection, but man as creature indeed deserves no less."

Amen. Back in the '80s, when I ran with the Left, I could never understand why so many who professed nature-lovers saw nothing perverse in contravening nature with homosexuality, contraception, sterilization, mutilation, abortion, and other abominations. What could possibly be organic about any of these? The Catholic Faith is the most organic thing going.
