"Pope Francis Didn't Say Hell Doesn't Exist, He Was Misrepresented" - Vatican by Gullah: 6:29pm On Mar 29, 2018
On Thursday the Holy See stated that a reported interview between Pope Francis and an Italian journalist, which claims the Pope denied the existence of hell, should not be considered an accurate depiction of Francis’ words, but the author’s own “reconstruction.”

A recent meeting between Pope Francis and Italian journalist Eugenio Scalfari, 93, was a “private meeting for the occasion of Easter; however, without giving him any interview,” the March 29 communique stated.

“What is reported by the author in today’s article is the result of his reconstruction, in which the literal words pronounced by the Pope are not quoted. No quotation of the aforementioned article must therefore be considered as a faithful transcription of the words of the Holy Father.”

Vatican spokespersons have dismissed the texts of Scalfari as unofficial. In 2014, Fr. Federico Lombardi, past papal spokesperson, told CNA that “if there are no words published by the Holy See press office and not officially confirmed, the writer takes full responsibility for what he has written.”

Pope Francis has previously spoken about the existence of hell in public speeches, including at a prayer vigil in March 2014.

There, he gave an address in which he said that members of the mafia should change their lives, “while there is still time, so that you do not end up in hell. That is what awaits you if you continue on this path.”

A guy has been disturbing my fiancee, he even told her I wasn't good for her. But God has decided to punish him, at the Easter Passion Play, he will be acting Jesus and they've chosen me as one of the soldiers that will flog Jesus all the way to Calvary.

I'm thinking of doubling the cane I'll be using tomorrow during the acting cos I'll flog him mercilessly angry

That statement could have dealt a great blow to religion and the adherents altogether

The fear of HELL (whether real or not) still keep people in check, to some extent.

Anyone who believes that God, Jesus, Allah, Heaven and Hell exists is very very dumb and should be taken to the hospital for a mental evaluation

There's a God in heaven that watches his children die of cancer on earth, don't be stupid

There are several religions that existed before Christianity and Islam, they're now extinct

Religion is the biggest scam in the history of mankind
