I think I have said quite often my disagreements with 'pope' Frank (AKA: Pope Francis). This article goes into much detail and is quite thorough in its coverage of the very disturbing sayings of Frank. It is a long article and I have abbreviated the article here and supplied a link to the rest of the article, where quotes and references to these posted questionable doings of Frank are documented.

'Pope Francis' – A Chronological List of Quotes and Headlines

[Image: POPE-FRANCIS-COMP-for-list-of-quotes.jpg]
Below is a very abbreviated and incomplete chronological summary list of deeply troubling quotes, headlines, and happenings which have taken place in the Pope Francis papacy. These news stories and quotes are intentionally presented in very brief format simply to demonstrate that there is an overall most suspicious and undeniable pattern of oddity surrounding Pope Francis. Some would describe many of these quotes and actions of Pope Francis as merely provocative or controversial, others as obvious blasphemous heresies, and sadly some might think they are uplifting and inspirational.

It should be known that all of the quotes and news items on the list below are from well established, mainstream news sources and may easily be searched in google to confirm.

 The WILD VOICE has not used any sources on the list below that are from 'satire' or 'questionable' or 'alternative' news sources.  In order to present these Pope Francis quotes in the most objective way as is possible, we have (almost entirely) also intentionally avoided using sources that are commonly seen to be 'critical' of Pope Francis or expressly 'traditionalist' in nature.

This summary is meant to give a 'big picture' quick view, but we very much encourage you to really take the time and check this list (each item is dated and sourced) on your own and verify the authenticity and full context of each story.
 If you find important things that are not included which should be, please don't hesitate to let us know by leaving a comment or by contacting us.

"Before Christ's second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers. The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth will unveil the "mystery of iniquity" in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth. The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of his Messiah come in the flesh."

CHRONOLOGY LIST
2013          2014          2015          2016         2017         2018
I feel like we are living in a time akin to the Arian heresy or what many in parts of Europe had to endure as Protestantism rolled in telling them that many sins were okay now.  There is a disbelief in the Divinity of Christ as at the time of the Arians now as well. It was the few, the holy, who were persecuted and managed to get through the confusion with unfaithful 'progressive' ones in high places.  We must cling to Christ and the Blessed Mother and what His Church--His Church, not a 'francischurch'-has always taught.
Christians get away with this kind of stuff, as sinners. Upon entering the church I think the pope is saying it's more a matter of "being" than "doing" anything. He'll take your heart to the ends of the earth, we just have to be attentive.
Thank you, Zedta.

I've been looking for a good list to give to people who are incredulous when I say that Pope Francis has been doing terrible things.  

There are many articles, but the information is all spread out all over the place.

I read through your list of quotes and stopped as soon as I saw you quoting from the heretical National Catholic Reporter. If you do not see the wisdom of the Popes true comments perhaps you need to study the genuine Catholic teachings from appropriate resources.

Your pathetic, petty, and disrespectful attitude towards the Vicar of Christ on earth speaks far more about you, than about the Holy Father, our beloved Pope Francis.
That list could actually be quite a bit longer. I could add quite a few entries.

What a heart-warming first post to this Forum.  

A hearty welcome to you as well.

Thank you. I remain Pathetic and petty! But Frank is not the true "Vicar of Christ on Earth", so I can be disrespectful as much as I wish with impunity and with a sense of necessity.

NCR has it's faults without a doubt. But in this article, they are quoting a seemingly heretical 'pope' and their accuracy trumps your assertion that they are in error because they are who they are. Even the Enquirer can quote with accuracy on occasion. For the NCR, this is one of those occasions.
