Proclamation Made On Vatican Radio
Pope Francis has attracted a lot of attention since being elected in 2013. Many conservative and traditionalist Catholics are pushing back against his views and statements. They claim the Pope's statements fall too much on the liberal side and don't abide by classic Catholic standards.
It's hard being Pope. Who knew?
Since his election, Pope Francis has stated that Atheists can go to Heaven, being gay and searching for God is not for him or anyone to judge, and that women who have abortions should still be allowed back into the good graces of the church.
