The Bible tells us to be “good stewards of the Earth,” and many religious leaders feel that it’s a sin to disregard the planet. Nowhere has this been more evident than in Naples, Italy, where Archbishop Crescenizo Sepe recently announced that he plans to deny communion to those who pollute the community. The bold statement came after it was discovered that local mafia members have been burying cancer-inducing toxic waste around the city. ”Those who pollute are not in the grace of God and can not take communion,’ Sepe told local journalists. Reuters reports that mafia involvement in crimes against the environment yield a turnover of €6 billion ($8.8 billion) a year.
