Francis: ‘It’s Better to Be an Atheist’ Than Greedy, Selfish Christian

Vatican leader Pope Francis has suggested that when it comes to how people live their lives, it’s better to be an atheist than someone who claims to be a Christian but leads an unChristian life of greed and selfishness.
“Scandal is saying one thing and doing another; it is a double life, a double life. A totally double life: ‘I am very Catholic, I always go to mass, I belong to this association and that one; but my life is not Christian, I don’t pay my workers a just wage, I exploit people, I am dirty in my business, I launder money.’ A double life. And so many Christians are like this, and these people scandalize others,” Francis said at the morning mass at the Casa Santa Marta, as reported by Vatican Radio on Thursday.
