Challenges World Leaders To Set Aside Partisan Interests And Protect the Environment
Pope Francis speaks truth to power. Pope Francis urged world leaders to "set aside partisan and ideological interests" and work together to protect the environment and care for all of humanity in his address to the United Nations General Assembly. Francis acknowledged the necessity of the world body as a tool for international collaboration, but also offered a blistering critique of the U.N., which celebrates its 70th anniversary this year.
