Proof of the syndrome of Paraskevidekatriaphobia: Pope Francis reaches out to atheists and agnostics

From: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/religion/the-pope/10302850/Pope-Francis-reaches-out-to-atheists-and-agnostics.html

The Pope has struck a surprisingly conciliatory tone towards atheists and agnostics, saying that God will “forgive” them as long as they behave morally and live according to their consciences.

The unprecedented gesture came as his incoming number two, the Vatican’s newly-nominated secretary of state, said that the rule that priests should be celibate was not “a dogma of the Church” and could be open for discussion.

Pastoral Republican asks:

Is the Pope Catholic?

Can the College of Cardinals conduct a recount of his election?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Pastoral Republican says:

Be very wary of Francis, especially everytime he “reaches out”. It almost always means a dilution or abandonment of the Magisterium.
