Pope Francis delivered another criticism of some members of his own Church on Thursday, suggesting it is better to be an atheist than one of "many" Catholics who he said lead a hypocritical double life.



"There are many Catholics who are like this and they cause scandal," he said. "How many times have we all heard people say 'if that person is a Catholic, it is better to be an atheist'."



Less than two months after his election, he said Christians should see atheists as good people if they do good.

That doesn't make any sense. A hypocritical Catholic cam repent and receive forgiveness. At worse they're both condemned to hell.

That is kind of what I was thinking.

Maybe Lanie will show up and explain it to us?
