In another media nightmare for the Vatican, Pope Francis has again met with Eugenio Scalfari, a 93-year-old atheist philosopher known for quoting the Pope without recording the conversation, leading to a new controversial ‘interview’ the Vatican insists is not “faithful” to the Holy Father’s words.
In the Pope’s fifth meeting with Scalfari, who is known not to take notes, the Pope purportedly said that “hell does not exist,” that unrepentant souls in mortal sin “disappear” after death, and that he is “honored” to be called a revolutionary.
The ‘interview’ appeared today in the left-leaning Italian daily Scalfari co-founded, La Repubblica, and which Pope Francis has said is the only newspaper he reads.
Scalfari described the meeting in this way:
“A non-believer and the Pope, Bishop of Rome on the chair of Peter and inspired especially by the letters of St. Paul, who transformed Christianity into a religion destined to be the most followed, together with the Muslim one, with which Francis has sought and still seeks brotherhood in the name of One God from whom all religions must be inspired.”
