Pope Francis criticised at the January 2 general audience daily mass-goers who - unsurprisingly - nevertheless remain sinners. Francis himself is a daily mass-goer.
|"I am a sinner and fallible."|
|"He who does not sin is not human"|
He said (Italian video): "People who go to church every day and then hate others and talk badly about them are a scandal: better living as an atheist rather than giving a counter-witness of being Christian."
Francis has a habit of insulting others. Atheism is the ultimate sin against God.
Francis further implied that the sacrifice of Mass is unnecessary: "Our God doesn't require sacrifices to win his favour. Our God needs nothing. In our prayer, he asks only that we keep a channel of communication open."
If God "needs nothing" why would he ask us "to keep a channel of communication open"?
