#2: Does the Bible demand a redistribution of wealth?
Speaking in front of several United Nations agency leaders, Pope Francis asked those present to resist participating in an "economy of exclusion" and strive to have "a real impact on the structural causes of poverty and hunger." Pope Francis argued that the Bible demands an economic system that cares for the "poorest and those most excluded."

#3: Did you know that albinism is far more common here in Tanzanian than the United States?
Well it's true. And unfortunately more Tanzanian witch doctors were arrested over killing an albino woman. This needs to stop.

#5: It is time to act on climate change.
The most recent National Climate Assessment makes it clear that the emission of carbon gases - particularly from automobiles and coal-burning power plants - is causing climate change. It's time we put all hands on deck to reduce emissions and prevent the problem from becoming worse.
