Controversy erupted this week when atheist Italian journalist Eugenio Scalfari published a serious charge in an article for the center-left outlet La Repubblica — namely, that Pope Francis previously told him in a private interview that Jesus Christ was not God. If true, this would be a blatant statement of heresy that denies the Nicene Creed and the Catechism.
The headline here does not correspond to the reality. Bergoglio still has not retracted. still has not confessed the Divinity of Jesus. Can't even figure how to do it. Scalfari told the truth.
