Francis, I hope, is playing with the media. He must know that in Christ alone is true peace....all else, however well-meaning, is enmity with God.
I read the other day that Francis stated that “all religions are equal”. That is a jaw-dropping thing for a Pope to say, especially when Christianity is competing with the likes of Islam for the soul of the planet. He is also heavy on the non-judgementalism. You add all this up, and it seems like Francis is trying to deconstruct the Catholic church. To what end, I have no idea.
