Pope demands 'predators' stop plundering the Earth

Pope demands 'predators' stop plundering the EarthPope Francis said Sunday it was time for “predators” to stop plundering the Earth for financial gain, holding up the “scarred face of the Amazon” as a warning. The poor are “threatened by predatory models of development”, the pope said at a Mass at the end of a three-week Vatican assembly, or synod, on the Pan-Amazonian region. “The mistakes of the past were not enough to stop the plundering of other persons and the inflicting of wounds on our brothers and sisters and on our sister earth: we have seen it in the scarred face of the Amazon region,” he said.
