Viral: Pope Francis Says Its Better to be an atheist than a hypocritical Catholic!


VATICAN CITY - Pope Francis conveyed another feedback of a few individuals from his own particular Church on Thursday, recommending it is ideal to be a atheist than one of "numerous" Catholics who he said lead a deceptive twofold life.

In improvised comments in the sermon of his private morning Mass in his residence, he said: "It is an outrage to state a certain something and do another.. That is a twofold life."

"There are those who say 'I am very Catholic, I always go to Mass, I belong to this and that association'," the head of the 1.2 billion-member Roman Catholic Church said, according to a Vatican Radio transcript.



He said that some of these people should also say "'my life is not Christian, I don't pay my employees proper salaries, I exploit people, I do dirty business, I launder money, [I lead] a double life'."

"There are numerous Catholics who are this way and they cause outrage," he said. "How often have we as a whole heard individuals say 'if that individual is a Catholic, it is ideal to be an atheist'."
Since his decision in 2013, Francis has regularly told Catholics, both priest and laypeople, to practice what their religion preaches.

In his often impromptu sermons, he has condemned sexual abuse of children by priests as being tantamount to a "Satanic Mass", said Catholics in the mafia excommunicate themselves, and told his own cardinals to not act as if they were "princes."

Less than two months after his election, he said Christians should see atheists as good people if they do good.
