Santorum Explains Why The Pope Needs To Stay Away From Climate Change

On Sunday, former Sen. Rick Santorum discussed why he thinks it's inappropriate for Pope Francis to weigh in on climate change. In a few weeks, the pope is expected to send a papal letter to all of the bishops of the Roman Catholic Church in order to urge them to discuss the effects of climate change on the poor as a moral and religious imperative. Santorum said, "I think that we probably are better off leaving science to the scientists and focusing on what we're really good at, which is theology and morality."

On "Fox News Sunday," Santorum defended his remarks by asserting that politicians "have to make decision with respect to our public policy that affect American workers." Host Chris Wallace replied "He would say he's protecting the earth." Santorum then responded "I would say that that's an important thing to do, but I think there are more pressing problems confronting the earth than climate change."
