Internet Hoaxes and Lies Regarding Pope Francis and the Catholic Church


Poor Pope Francis--he has been misquoted so many times, his words twisted and even complete lies that have been spread about what he has said or didn’t say since his election in 2013.  

There are many ‘antichrists’ who will do anything in their power to create confusion in the world making statements that were twisted to suit the desires of those who want changes made in the Catholic Church…CHANGES THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN as they are dogmas from the beginning of the Church coming down from the Apostles and Christ Himself.

One such article that I discovered was sent to me as an email-- a complete invention of it’s writer, Erik Thorsen on his site called  "Diversity Chronicle" that went viral on the internet completely confusing people who are not well-informed as to the truth of the Catholic Church.  Even those declaring themselves to be Catholic.  He stated that Pope Francis said that there was no hell, that all religions are true and that the Church has changed it’s teaching on homosexual behavior.  All of course these claims are untrue.  Mr. Thorsen stated that these new teachings were from the third Vatican Council…. THERE HAS NOT BEEN A THIRD VATICAN COUNCIL.  Read more at

Thorsen and many others in this world can’t tolerate the Catholic Church’s stand on fundamental beliefs such as abortion, homosexuality, women priests, etc. so they try to confuse the world’s population with lies to turn their beliefs into an attitude positive to their whims.

I feel every Catholic should take a stand and tell the truth about the Church’s teachings.  It’s past time that we truly stood for our beliefs and stop letting the so called relativism or liberals run atop of us.  We have been too lax in standing up for what is right and letting those with louder voices rule.  Hence, the continuing corruptness of the world today.

The worldly view is that the Catholic Church is ‘behind the times’ and ‘bigoted’.  Of course, the opposite is true.  The teachings that have come down through 2000 years are just a viable as they were in the beginning.  It’s the world that has changed in a very immoral way—trying to make everything that is ‘sinful’  good and everything good as ‘sinful or evil’.

If we truly believe in the teachings of the Church and want to follow her, we must know our faith.  Those who just attend Christmas Mass or occasionally come to a Sunday Mass and even those who are faithfully attending Mass every Sunday and during the week need to know what the truth is that the Church teaches.  

I recommend getting a copy of the Catechism of the Catholic Church promulgated for the Catholic Church by Pope John Paul II (soon to be lifted to sainthood this year 2014).  In it is all the dogmas and truths that the Church stands for.  (You can even go on-line as the Catechism of the Catholic Church has been added to the internet by the Vatican itself.  Go to .   “The decision to publish a catechism was taken at the Extraordinary Assembly of the Synod of Bishops that was convened by Pope John Paul II on 25 January 1985 for the 20th anniversary of the close of the Second Vatican Council, and in 1986, the pope put a commission composed of 12 bishops and cardinals in charge of the project.[2] The commission was assisted by a seven member committee including diocesan bishops and experts in theology and catechesis.[2]  Read more about the conception of the Catechism of the Catholic Church on Wikipedia

For news concerning the Church and the TRUE QUOTES OF POPE FRANCIS, I recommend the National Catholic Register.  “With so much happening in the world that affects Catholics and so many Catholics making a difference in the world, it's the best source”  for truthful Catholic news--completely true to the teachings of the Catholic Church and it's Magisterium.  Go to

Learn more about the faith by watching EWTN – Eternal Word Television Network.  Now also known at the Global Catholic Network.   Cable companies usually have it for free – others like my cable company charge a mere $2.95 for the channel.  It has true fundamental Catholic teachings taught by priests such as Father Mitch Pacwa, religious and laypersons.  Daily Masses, programs on the Pope’s addresses, News from the Vatican, Women’s issues, Saints, Children’s programming and so much more 24 hours a day- some of their programs can be found on Youtube as well.    EWTN also has  

Radio programs with great programs relating to today’s world by speakers teaching true doctrine.   EWTN is supported by the viewers and has been since it’s conception August 15, 1981 by the much loved Mother Angelica.    “EWTN Global Catholic Network, in its 32nd year, is available in over 228 million television households in more than 140 countries and territories. With its direct broadcast satellite television and radio services, AM & FM radio networks, worldwide short-wave radio station, Internet website and publishing arm, EWTN, is the largest religious media network in the world.”  It truly speaks for the Roman Catholic Church and it’s Magisterium.

As you  can see, there is NO REASON why Catholics and non-Catholics cannot find the TRUTH if they are willing to look for it.   Stop living in an ignorant world, open your eyes to the reality which is the Catholic informed… become knowledgeable—so that when someone asks you a questions concerning your beliefs you will know the answer or know where to look for the answer.
