I am being sincere here: I don’t believe Pope Francis believes in God, at least not in a personal God. I imagine he did early in his priesthood, but that he lost his faith long ago. The obvious evidence of this is his seething contempt for Catholics who believe in, well, Catholicism. We are “rigid...unbalanced...constipated”. However, perhaps more telling is how little this Pope, who after all, is the CEO of the Catholic Church, talks about God or Christ or religion at all. Look up his talk on Ash Wednesday. It was about...nothing...vague encouragement to recharge your batteries, spend time with your family...perhaps he mentioned God...I think...Perhaps I exaggerate, but of this I am certain: in the Pope’s recent interview, he spoke all about HIMSELF. Yes, Mr Humble didn’t talk much about God or Jesus at all. And you know the topic I don’t think I’ve ever heard him address? HEAVEN. This physical world, Pope Francis frets about constantly, but where our SOULS will end up...wait, does Frankie even believe we have souls? It’s rather odd that it’s unclear whether a Pope believes in souls and Heaven...isn’t it?
Some of the Catholics on this site outdo Martin Luther in their fulminations against the pope. I thought Catholicism was about following the pope, not disagreeing with him
