Quote: From the Catechism of the Catholic Church:
<i>2415
The seventh commandment enjoins respect for the integrity of creation. Animals, like plants and inanimate beings, are by nature destined for the common good of past, present, and future humanity.195 Use of the mineral, vegetable, and animal resources of the universe cannot be divorced from respect for moral imperatives. Man's dominion over inanimate and other living beings granted by the Creator is not absolute;<b> it is limited by concern for the quality of life of his neighbor, including generations to come</b>; it requires <b>a religious respect</b> for the integrity of creation.196</i>
<i>
</i>
That sounds like environmentalist speak (quality of life, sustainability, religious respect for creation etc). I did not know environmentalism could be catholicized!
