The Vatican called pro-choice California Gov. Jerry Brown a leader who defends the “dignity and freedom of each person” in a tweet lauding the governor’s climate change crusade.
Earlier this month Brown patted himself on the back for a two-week European climate change tour that included the Vatican, according to Life Site News. In his Vatican address, Brown spoke of brainwashing people in order to convince them of man-made climate change. Brown called for “…not just a light rinse,” but rather, “We need a total, I might say, ‘brainwashing.’
“Bravo Jerry,” begins the tweet from Casina Pio IV. “…you are a true leader who seeks the good of the people defending the dignity and freedom of each person, and the good of the planet threatened by human activity that uses fossil fuel!”
Bravo Jerry: you are a true leader who seeks the good of the people defending the dignity and freedom of each person, and the good of the planet threatened by human activity that uses fossil fuel! 🙏🙏🙏 https://t.co/wuXhuFsbAY

Brown has lobbied fervently for abortion and signed legislation mandating pro-life pregnancy centers to produce information on where to get abortions, a measure that has since been stopped in the court system. The governor also signed a bill legalizing assisted suicide in California.
