Pope denied Christ’s divinity? Never.

A Vatican spokesman directly denied on Thursday the report of an Italian journalist who wrote that Pope Francis said he did not believe that Jesus Christ was divine. “The Holy Father never said what [Eugenio] Scalfari wrote,” Vatican communications head Paolo Ruffini said, adding that “both the quoted remarks and the free reconstruction and interpretation by Dr. Scalfari of the conversations . . . cannot be considered a faithful account of what was said by the pope.”
