Authority comes from morals. Once religious morals are abandoned, the religious authority is gone.
So the new pope has abandoned religious morals to endorse “Global Warming,” Leftism, and other such nonsense, and he couches it in moral terms. As a result he is rapidly losing any moral authority the office once had. He looks like just another mindless shill. The authority is gone, and Catholics may revolt. In some ways they already are.
It’s an important lesson: once we openly shill for a political position, we lose all moral authority. In other words, there are things we can do that strip us of any moral authority that we may have.
For example, a parent who tells his kid not to cheat and then is found to be unequivocally a cheater and who is found to be lying about it and using moral authority to cover it up will have no moral authority to keep saying that the kid should not cheat. The kid may come to that conclusion on his or her own, but there is no moral authority from the parent.
In other words, moral authority is inseparable from morality. When you use your authority to cover your own immorality or falsities, you immediately lose any moral authority that you once had.
