Pope Francis Says There is no Hell and The Creation Story is a Moral Fable #Hoax

How many people saw this news report that
supposedly copiously quoted Pope Francis in the
wake of a Third Vatican Council? Did you
believe it? Did it send you and your faith into a
tailspin? Well, wail and curse and judge the
pope no more, it was all a hoax from a spoof site,
The Diversity Chronicle.
The Diversity Chronicle has a disclaimer
page that says, "The original content on
this blog is largely satirical." In the article
below, they portayed Pope Francis as
shedding the traditionally conservative
roots of the Roman Catholic Church and
embracing all religions. He also spoke
against racism and sexism and
championed immigration of blacks and
muslims into Europe. A good thing, right?
Supposedly Nigeria's Cardinal Arinze
denounced him roundly. What do you
The Third Vatican Council concluded today
with Pope Francis announcing that Catholicism
is now a “modern and reasonable religion,
which has undergone evolutionary changes.
The time has come to abandon all intolerance.
We must recognize that religious truth evolves
and changes. Truth is not absolute or set in
stone. Even atheists acknowledge the divine.
Through acts of love and charity the atheist
acknowledges God as well, and redeems his
own soul, becoming an active participant in
the redemption of humanity.”
“Through humility, soul searching, and
prayerful contemplation we have gained a new
understanding of certain dogmas. The church
no longer believes in a literal hell where people
suffer. This doctrine is incompatible with the
infinite love of God. God is not a judge but a
friend and a lover of humanity. God seeks not
to condemn but only to embrace. Like the
fable of Adam and Eve, we see hell as a literary
device. Hell is merely a metaphor for the
isolated soul, which like all souls ultimately will
be united in love with God” Pope Francis
In a speech that shocked many, the Pope
claimed “All religions are true, because they
are true in the hearts of all those who believe in
them. What other kind of truth is there? In the
past, the church has been harsh on those it
deemed morally wrong or sinful. Today, we no
longer judge. Like a loving father, we never
condemn our children. Our church is big
enough for heterosexuals and homosexuals, for
the pro-life and the pro-choice! For
conservatives and liberals, even communists
are welcome and have joined us. We all love
and worship the same God.”
One statement in the Pope’s speech has sent
traditionalists into a fit of confusion and
hysteria. “God is changing and evolving as we
are, For God lives in us and in our hearts.
When we spread love and kindness in the
world, we touch our own divinity and recognize
it. The Bible is a beautiful holy book, but like
all great and ancient works, some passages are
outdated. Some even call for intolerance or
judgement. The time has come to see these
verses as later interpolations, contrary to the
message of love and truth, which otherwise
radiates through scripture. In accordance with
our new understanding, we will begin to ordain
women as cardinals, bishops and priests. In the
future, it is my hope that we will have a woman
pope one day. Let no door be closed to women
that is open to men!”
In addition to the Pope’s sweeping calls for
tolerance and a new progressive understanding
of Catholicism, he condemned racism, raising
his voice and pounding the podium in front of
him. Pope Francis spent over an hour
castigating anti-immigrant politicians, parties
and individuals. Wagging his finger sternly
with righteous indignation, the Pope shouted
“Racism today is the ultimate evil in the world.
When Italians, Spanish or French turn back
the boats of African migrants seeking a better
life, are they not like the inn keeper who told
Mary and Joseph that there was no room for
them and the infant Christ? These migrants are
children of God and we are commanded to love
His voice loudly echoing through St. Peter’s
basilica, the Pope stated “those who would dare
to turn immigrants away, be they legal or
undocumented, turn their backs on Christ
himself! A racist is not a true Christian. A racist
casts aside his humanity to become a beast, a
demon! He is the embodiment and
personification of evil, a Satan!”
To a chorus of thunderous applause, Pope
Francis stated “because Muslims, Hindus and
African Animists are also made in the very
likeness and image of God, to hate them is to
hate God! To reject them to is to reject God
and the Gospel of Christ. Whether we worship
at a church, a synagogue, a mosque or a
mandir, it does not matter. Whether we call
God, Jesus, Adonai, Allah or Krishna, we all
worship the same God of love. This truth is
self-evident to all who have love and humility
in their hearts!”
In a announcement that shocked many people,
Pope Francis warned that “those who seek to
deny a home to the migrant, to the African and
the Muslim, risk their membership in the
church. We will consider excommunication for
those whose souls willingly dwell in the
darkness and evil of intolerance and racism.
Satan himself is a metaphor or a
personification, for the collective evils of
mankind. Today, these evils manifest foremost
as racism, intolerance, religious persecution
and bigotries of all kinds.”
A couple of prominent Catholic cardinals have
responded to Pope Francis’ declarations by
leaving the church. Cardinal Arinze of Nigeria
asked, “what do we stand for if we declare that
truth is relative? On the contrary, truth exists
independently of our personal feelings. All of
this talk of love and tolerance is hollow if we
have no identity of our own, if we stand for
nothing. I charge that Francis has become a
heretic, and that he is not a valid Pope. Indeed,
Francis is no longer even a Catholic. The seat
of Saint Peter is vacant. I am now a
Sedevacantist. I should have become one long
ago. The Vatican has embraced ecumenism in
the past, but worse than that, it has now
embraced moral relativism on abortion and
homosexuality. At the same time it is
embracing moral absolutism in favour of illegal
immigration and cultural genocide against
In his most controversial statement, Cardinal
Arinze said “Islam has overrun my own
country, and now it threatens to overrun
Europe. Some parts of Nigeria now live under
Islamic Sharia law. Catholics there are no
longer free to practice their faith publicly.
Francis is a fool if he thinks that his liberal
immigration policy will end well. He has
betrayed western civilization. Vatican City will
one day become a giant mosque if things
continue in Europe along their present course.
Those in the West who ignore this truth, do so
at their own peril.”
In an angry and vitriolic rant revealing deep
self-hating tendencies, the African Cardinal
Arinze stated “There is nothing wrong with
Europeans who want to protect their borders.
The problem is that there is not enough border
control and the immigration policies are far too
lenient in Europe. Is it racist to desire to
preserve one’s own home? Why is it racist to
want to preserve your own culture and a future
for your people and your children? Have white
people gone stupid today?”
