VATICAN CITY (LifeSiteNews) – Pope Francis has appointed Cardinal Peter Turkson the new Chancellor of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences and the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences. 

The Ghanaian cardinal was appointed Monday to succeed the Argentine Bishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo, who had been in that role since 1998. 

In recent years, both Turkson and Sorondo have made headlines for statements contrary to Church teaching and in line with the ideology of population control.

Turkson, 73, who served as the first Prefect for the Dicastery for Promoting of Integral Human Development from 2017 to 2021, promotes environmentalist ideas. He has publicly praised teen environmental activist Greta Thunberg, describing her as “a great witness to what the Church teaches on the care for the environment.”  

Turkson also appears to be a believer in population control. 

In 2015, the Ghanaian cardinal had to explain himself following a controversial BBC interview in which he claimed that Pope Francis had called for “a certain amount of birth control” to tackle lack of food and environmental issues, thus giving credence to the theory that the planet is overpopulated. 

More recently, Turkson supported the idea that pro-abortion president Joe Biden should continue to be admitted to Holy Communion. The cardinal asserted that the abortion-promoting, dissident “Catholic” Democrat is not in a “state of sin” and that “the Eucharist should not in any way become a weapon.”  

The newly appointed Chancellor of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences and the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences also supports population control advocates.

SIGN, THANK and STAND with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis who is being attacked by Disney for signing a new law which prohibits sexual indoctrination of schoolchildren from Kindergarten to 3rd Grade*Anyone - no matter where you reside - can sign this petition!

For protecting the innocence of his state's youngest schoolchildren and standing up to the bullies in the LGBT lobby, Governor Ron DeSantis has predictably been on the receiving end of sustained attacks from LGBT activists and their numerous allies in the leftist mainstream media.

And now, the Disney Corporation - one of Florida's biggest employers - has decided to interfere in politics and pick a fight with DeSantis over the new law.

BUT, Florida parents, and parents across the country, are overjoyed that a governor is finally taking seriously their concerns about the early sexualization of our nation's children!

SIGN, THANK, and STAND with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis with this petition which will be delivered to Governor DeSantis' office and CC'ed to Disney, and which tells the Governor that we thank him for, and will stand with him in, protecting our schoolchildren from LGBT indoctrination.

This common sense legislation, known as the Parental Rights in Education Act, prohibits instruction pertaining to sexual orientation, "gender identity" and transgenderism in Kindergarten through 3rd Grade classrooms across the state of Florida.

And, the new law also puts stronger limits on such discussions for older children, frustrating a primary tenet of the radical left's plan to encroach upon impressionable young minds.

Media talking heads and political opponents, ranging from radical LGBT activist groups to morally corrupt corporations like Disney, dubbed HB 1557 the "Don't Say Gay" Bill.

But, the truth is that such sensitive, personal subjects are not the job of schools to cover, but the job of parents alone, who, under the bill, would be allowed to take legal action against school districts that violate its provisions.

By their hateful reaction to the bill (now law) and to Governor DeSantis, one can only assume that Disney actually despises parents and their role as the primary educator of their children, especially in, but not limited to, areas of sexual conduct and morals.

Indeed, the extreme volume of manufactured outrage on this particular piece of legislation reveals the following significant nugget of information: one of the seminal means the LGBT "community" counts on to continue attracting people into their ranks, or as so-called "allies," is by brainwashing little, unsuspecting children without their, or their parents', consent.

We know it, and they know it. And, finally, someone is doing something about it.

SIGN, THANK and STAND with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis who is being attacked by Disney for signing a new law which prohibits sexual indoctrination of schoolchildren from Kindergarten to 3rd Grade.

Children's innocence is worth it and Disney, and its chairman Bob Chapek, should be ashamed of themselves for threatening to interfere in state politics because they are offended that children's minds will no longer be violated.

We must encourage people like Governor DeSantis and the Florida Legislature not to be blackmailed and not to be afraid...

If Disney wants to escalate things, then conservative and Christian parents might be finally persuaded not to visit Disneyland and Disney World, nor buy Disney products, nor watch Disney films.

Conservatives and Christians, and right-thinking people from all walks of life, need to start playing hardball with the likes of Disney.

We saw what happens when parents show their power in Virginia last year, so any further action on this matter by Florida Democrats and their allies in Disney’s executive leadership will be at their own peril.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to THANK and STAND WITH Governor Ron DeSantis for protecting children from LGBT propaganda, and from Disney's bullying, slurs and legal threats.

Thank you!

Turkson has served for years as the Vatican’s top liaison to the World Economic Forum, the group behind the infamous “Great Reset” scheme “to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies.”

He has joined at least five annual summits of the World Economic Forum (WEF) during Pope Francis’ pontificate, including in  2014,  2016,  2018, and  2020, often delivering remarks from the pope or hosting the Vatican’s own WEF “roundtable.” 

The “Great Reset,” which seeks to enshrine socialistic “stakeholder capitalism” as the dominant global economic model, includes “LGBTI Inclusion” as a key theme. “Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed,” WEF founder Klaus Schwab said of the initiative in June.

Among the WEF’s LGBT programs was a project last summer to promote “LGBTQI+ inclusion during the COVID-19 crisis” in collaboration with the Thomas Reuters Foundation and Salesforce – two of the many pro-LGBT organizations on Pope Francis’s council for “inclusive capitalism.”

In January, Turkson joined the WEF once again for the Forum’s most recent summit, which specifically centered around the “Great Reset.” In an interview with the National Catholic Register shortly after, Turkson explained the Vatican’s involvement with the WEF, saying “we need to be open” to the Reset.

“We need to have our eyes a bit more open to all of this because, since the pandemic began last winter, Pope Francis invited us to create a commission to follow this,” he said, referring to the Vatican COVID-19 Commission, which Turkson oversees.

Last December, Turkson resigned from his position as prefect of the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, just a few months following an inspection of the Dicastery ordered by Pope Francis and led by Cardinal Cupich of Chicago.  

Cardinal Sorondo’s record has been no less controversial.

In 2018, Sorondo praised China’s communist regime, saying it was “best [at] implementing the social doctrine of the Church.” That same year, he dismissed experts’ warnings about China’s horrendous practice of organ harvesting.  

Two years later, in 2o20, Sorondo defended giving Holy Communion to the pro-abortion president of Argentina and his mistress on the occasion of their visit to the Vatican. 

The 79-year-old is also a firm promoter of climate change ideology.
