  1. While the quotation of Pope Francis in the headline falls near to, but short of, heresy, it crosses the line and then some as scandalizing.

  2. In the HISTORY, of the Roman Catholic Church (some good and some bad) This Makes No Sense!
    It is the Primary Goal of Christs Ministry, on Earth! Making Everyman a Believer and have Eternal Life!
    Later, to be present at The Marriage Supper of The Lamb, which everything in Scripture points to, in the Bride of Christ!
