Once again Pope Francis is making headlines for supposed comments he made to atheist reporter Eugenio Scalfari in the Italian newspaper “La Repubblica.” In this report, Scalfari claims that Pope Francis stated that “2% of Catholic clergy are pedophiles.” He continued (supposedly) that pedophilia is a “leprosy” in the Church.  

I am not sure what to make of this because according to Fr. Lombardi, spokesman for the Vatican, he said that the interview was not an interview, but a conversation.  Lombardi also added that this “interview” that’s not an interview was not recorded basically alluding that Scalfari may have given his own spin on the Pope’s words.  This may be the case and is not the first time the media has taken the Popes words out of context.  

The news has been trending around the internet, especially among atheists who claim to want to rid the world or religion, but always are the first to know what’s going on in the world of religion; sometimes before religious people including yours truly!

I will update this blog post if necessary if/when anymore information comes out.
