On May 22, Pope Francis issued a provocative statement that Jesus Christ redeems all Catholics, non-Catholics, and even Atheists if they lead good lives. The Vatican, however, “clarified” Pope Francis’ statement a few days later. Kevin Eckstrom, editor-in-chief of the award-winning Religion News Service, will join Welton to discuss the theological and political implications of the Pope’s statement and the ensuing retraction. Who should we believe – the Pope or the Vatican? Did the Church get more than it bargained for when it selected a pope far outside of its traditional pool of European cardinals? Are we looking at a rogue papacy? Join us to hear the answers to these questions, and more! CLICK HERE FOR EXTENDED INTERVIEW VIDEO AND TRANSCRIPT
