New eco-friendly catechism


92357 Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents the use of plastic as an act of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that "plastic is intrinsically disordered." It is contrary to the natural law. It does not proceed from a genuine love of Mother Nature as shown to us through Pachamama. Under no circumstances can it be approved.

92358 The inclination to use plastic is objectively disordered, but the number of men and women who feel such deep-seated urges is not negligible. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God's will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord's Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition.

92359 God in His mercy has provided for us Green Bins, in which to caste away all plastics that may prevent us from approaching Christian perfection. Although some of us are endowed with bins that are blue, or even rainbow-coloured, they too can be seen as blessings unto us.

92360 Many of us are also blessed with bins of another colour; for example, we may have a brown bin into which may be cast all that is biodegradable, that it may be return to Mother Earth as compost. To throw into our brown bin those gifts that are not worthy of it, such as plastics, wooden idols, and glass bottles, is morally inadmissible; wrongdoers must pray and fast, and may only receive forgiveness from a bishop.

Cast away your sins, that ye may be forgiven!


  1. Canon Law PF666GretaT.CO2 : The baptised person who shall knowingly and persistently have denied that all must bow down to Mother Earth Pachamama will be declared as being a Nazi and as literally Hitler and will be no-platformed at the weekend inclusive liturgical festivity of all religions.

  2. Still on vacation from Twitter. I see a few people on FB that I am just informed enough to know that I would really be depressed if still on Twitter.

  3. Hold on a mo! Aren't those bins plastic? Sin-bins perhaps?

  4. Plastic (W)Rap

    I’m down with plastic but I need to discern
    My irregular state so I need to learn
    But my concrete situation won’t let me act
    According to your law and that’s a fact
    You say throw all my plastic in the bin
    But I can’t do that without more sin
    You wanna mold me into plastic man
    Shaped in your image, yet conscience can
    Not correspond to your gospel demand
    A whole new law that you command
    And I can dig with sincerity
    With a certain moral security
    Amoris Plasticia #303
    My most generous response is saying nope
    Even if you’re apparent pope
    While not yet meeting your objective ideal
    In a plastic world you gotta get real
    Let us recall your discernment is dynamic
    You tell us truth is evolving and manic
    Breakin’ bad is our normal condition
    No need to say an act of contrition
    You say God wants us livin’ in sin
    If we’re saved pussons let’s call that a win.

  5. I know the right rapper

  6. Green Plastic Bertrand...too horribly funny.
