“God Always Forgives, But The Earth Does Not” – Pope Francis Warns Of Doomsday



“God always forgives, but the earth does not,” said Pope Francis at the Second International Conference on Nutrition (CIN2) in Rome
Pope Francis has warned that planet earth could face a doomsday scenario if the world does not stop abusing its resources for profit. The disturbing predictions were made by the pointiff during the three-day meeting aimed at tackling malnutrition.
The meeting organised by the UN food agency (FAO) and World Health Organization (WHO) was attended by representatives from 190 countries. Francis once again urged the world’s population to have ‘mutual respect, instead of fighting between themselves, damaging and impoverishing the planet.’
The 77-year old said the world had “paid too little heed to those who are hungry. It is also painful to see the struggle against hunger and malnutrition hindered by ‘market priorities’, the ‘primacy of profit’, which reduce foodstuffs to a commodity like any other, subject to speculation and financial speculation in particular.”
‘The hungry remain at the street corner… and ask for a healthy diet. We ask for dignity, not for charity. Feed the hungry, save life on the planet,”  Francis said at the end of his speech which was met with a standing ovation.
While the number of undernourished people dropped by over half in the past two decades, 805 million people were still affected in 2014. Two billion people suffer from deficiencies in nutrients such as vitamin A, iron and zinc – a condition known as ‘hidden hunger’ by experts – while 42 million children and 500 million adults are overweight or obese.
