Transcript: Pope Francis’ March 5 interview with Corriere della Sera

Were you displeased by the accusations of Marxism, mostly American, after the publication of Evangelii Gaudium?

Not at all. I have never shared the Marxist ideology, because it is not true, but I have known many great people who professed Marxism.

Excerpt:

Why is Francis persisting in downplaying the nature of Marxism – considering that over 120 million people have been exterminated as a result of this evil ideology? The death toll continues in Cuba, China, North Korea, Laos and Vietnam – as well as in other satellite socialist countries in Africa and Asia.

When asked about accusations of Marxism, Francis replied [excerpt]:

“I have never shared the Marxist ideology, because it is not true, but I have known many great people who professed Marxism.”

Francis, THERE ARE NO GREAT MARXISTS!

Who cares that Francis does not believe in Marxism!

What matters is the fact that he praises people who profess to be Marxists!

Who are the “many great people” that Francis knows, who profess to be Marxists? Is one of them Francis’s friend, Cardinal Hummes from Brazil?
