“Francis Never Said What Scalfari Attributed To Him”
Francis told Scalfari that “Jesus is not God.”
Now Ruffini siad: “There has already been a clear denial from the Director of the Press Office, Dr. Bruni. However, I would like to reiterate that the Holy Father never said what Scalfari wrote he said.
Therefore, both the quoted remarks, and the free reconstruction and interpretation by Dr Scalfari of the colloquies - which go back to more than two years ago - cannot be considered a faithful account of what was said by the Pope and what, on the contrary, can be found about Jesus throughout his and the Church's magisterium: true God and true man.”
It is difficult to believe the Vatican, as this is not the first scandal Francis produced while talking to Scalfari and this has not stopped Francis to continue his relation with the anti-Church journalist.
Also the fact that Francis categorically refuses to bow in front of the Blessed Sacrament corroborates Scalfari's statement.
