Martin Sheen "speaking" at Ecumenical Climate Change event at Superior Diocese parishes March 5-7

I say "speaking" because from the literature sent to me it says there's a pre-recorded message from Martin Sheen which will be played at the event, not that he was attending the events personally.
Tuesday, March 7, 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Solon Springs Community Center, 11523 South US Hwy 53, Save the Earth, Save the Poor, an interfaith series of presentations featuring Catholic social justice advocate Martin Sheen, Catholic Charities and other regional faith based social service providers. Breakfast and lunch included.
...
The symposium is being sponsored by the Peace of Mind Project and Martin Sheen, principle spokesperson for the project.

The Peace of Mind Project was founded by Fr. James Kinney, pastor of the cluster, in 1999, and is dedicated to raising awareness for those with mental illness.

  1. Prayers for Superior Diocese and new Bishop and this parish and their priest. This is disturbing. Martin Sheen? Climate Change? God save us.

  2. I just checked and confirmed: Martin Sheen is not someone to have their recording played for a Catholic event. God save us.

  3. What's wrong with Catholics being interested in Climate Change? The popes have frequently talked about good stewardship and the environment, Benedict 16 especially. Catholic orthodoxy isn't opposed to thoughtful management of our resources and environment.
