The following comes from a December 19 LifeSiteNews article by Lisa Bourne:
An employee of a climate change non-profit associated with the U.S. Bishops has resigned after publicly advocating that opposition to the disputed notion of climate change is as important as the sanctity of human life while also apparently supporting other issues that contravene Catholic teaching.
Sarah Spengeman, director of programs for Catholic Climate Covenant (CCC), made comments equating the fight against “climate change” with the pro-life cause in a December 3 San Diego Union-Tribune article. The newspaper reported that some Catholic leaders are advancing the idea that “climate change” is on the same priority level as abortion or other life issues.
“It’s clear that climate change is a pro-life issue,” Spengeman stated. “People are being killed by climate change already, so it’s very core to our beliefs.”
“If we want to leave our children an inhabitable earth, if we have a responsibility to the unborn, we have a responsibility to act on climate,” she added.
Her comments generated some media attention after the Union-Tribune story was published and then again with a December 12 report released by the Lepanto Institute further detailing that Spengeman publicly supports the pro-abortion cause and marriage redefinition, including lending her name to legal documents.
Spengeman’s biography is no longer available on the CCC website, nor does she appear on its staff page.
While LifeSiteNews did not receive a response from CCC on Spengeman’s status with the group, in a comment on ChurchMilitant, she said she was forced to resign.
The Lepanto Institute report showed that Spengeman is a member of the EMILY’s List LinkedIn group, a social media group that specifically advocates for pro-abortion women to be elected to office.
She was also a signatory on an Amici Curiae brief submitted last year to the U.S. Supreme Court by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), endorsing same-sex “marriage” prior to the Court’s 2015 Obergefell decision.
The Lepanto report also detailed the “likes” on Spengeman’s Facebook profile for numerous pro-abortion politicians, pro-homosexual and women’s ordination organizations.
even the church swamp can be drained
The U.S. Bishops value the lifes of unborn babies no more than climate change.
So much for veting one’s emplouyees!
It is unfair that this one person is being scapegoated to the point of resigning when in fact the Catholic bishops themselves are involved in a scandalous Catholic Global Climate Movement. The bishops themselves are responsible for misleading the faithful! The CGCM’s website states clearly their position that climate change is “man made.” This can only mean two things: they no longer trust in God; and they do not trust that human beings are capable of solving problems such as cleaning up dirty water at industrial sites. To them, these things will only occur when businesses are taxed out of existence. This movement places tremendous pressure on children in schools, telling them in so many words, “it’s your fault for increasing…
Continuation . . . “it’s your fault for increasing the carbon footprint!”
I receive updates from the CGCM. On Dec. 2, 2016, their newsletter posted, “Some History of the Word Pro-Life.” After some investigating I learned that it was authored by “The New Pro-Life Movement.” They claim to be Catholics. They say things that are in direct opposition and contradict the Authentic Pro-Life Movement. They are on the attack! Be very cautious if you hear they are coming to your parish. https://catholicclimatemovement.global/some-history-of-the-term-pro-life/

Planetary Warming due to human activity is a compete hoax. 10,000 years ago the Great Lakes and Minnesota were covered in ice. That was real non-industrial weather change. Just let Trump represent US on this, and leave Papa Francisco out of it as he is one of the others.
