The Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Culture has invited a series of pro-choice guests to speak at their May conference, an event that features “the world’s leading physicians, scientists, leaders of faith, ethicists, patient advocates, policymakers, philanthropists, and influences” who will “engage in powerful conversations on the latest breakthroughs in medicine, health care delivery, and prevention.”
They say the event will be “moderated by renowned journalists, who will explore the role of religion, faith and spirituality, and the interplay of the mind, body, and soul – and ultimately, search for areas of convergence between the humanities and the natural sciences.”
Who better to speak on the health and the soul of humanity than a bunch of pro-choice atheists? [Editor’s note: Lord, have mercy on us all…we have to read all the garbage they will produce…]
The conference, which will close with a message for the participants from Pope Francis, has a speaker list that skews heavily with medical and technology experts. Not only does it feature CEOs of several major pharmaceutical companies like Stéphane Bancel of Moderna or Francis Collins, the director of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, it also includes characters such as Chelsea Clinton, Anthony Fauci, Deepak Chopra, supermodel Cindy Crawford, Muslim scholar Shaykh Asim Yusuf, anthropologist Jane Goodall, and Aerosmith Guitarist Joe Perry, among others.
Some of the topics listed are Sustainable Health Care: Protecting Our Environment, Religious Dietary Practices and Health, A New Generation of Vaccines; Religion, Spirituality, and Health: The Importance of Dialogue; The Neuroscience of Empathy and Compassion; Building A More Equitable Health System for All; and How Do You Define the Soul?
