Pope Francis I

Atheists Still Going To Hell, Vatican Assures Catholics

Did Pope Francis Perform An Exorcism?

I’m starting to like this new pope

Pope Francis: Atheists are all right!

Pope Francis has denounced the global financial system, blasting the “cult of money” that he says is tyrannizing the poor and turning humans into expendable consumer goods: “Money has to serve, not to rule!”

Pope Francis says atheists can be good “Atheists should be seen as good people if they do good, Pope Francis has said in his latest urging that people of all religions, and none, work together.”

Pope proclaims all redeemed, even atheists. “The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the Blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone! ‘Father, the atheists?’ Even the atheists. Everyone!”

Vatican corrects infallible pope: atheists will still burn in hell
