Pope Francis has blasted conservative Christians who pursue their faith too rigidly cautioning their rigid outlook is developing a minefield of misunderstanding and hatred.
The head of the Catholic Church made the remarks he spoke honestly to cardinals, bishops, priests and members of staff in the Sala Clementina on Saturday in the Apostolic Palace, Vatican City for his annual Christmas address.
Other church leaders were warned by the pope that the church doesnt enjoy the authority it once did anymore, proposing they should stimulate followers to be more inclusive of other religions.
This year perceived the papacy rocked by historical sex abuse claims and financial public embarrassment.

Merry Christmas to all who still call on His Holy Name - Jesus The Christ! The only name by which mankind shall be saved.
The Catholic Encyclopedia in 1913 said:
The pope himself, if notoriously guilty of heresy, would cease to be pope because he would cease to be a member of the Church.
Catholic Encyclopedia. New York: Encyclopedia Press 1913. 7:261.
We get it, the current one is
“The Flexible Pope”.
He doesn’t need to emphasize this every FRking single day....
The pope is a socialist/commie dope.
Come to think of it, that's also when I said bye to the Catholic Church.
Compared to John Paul, this poser is a fraud! I say this as a former catholic.
It looks like our country, governed by a “Living Constitution”, is to be just like our faith, governed by a “Living Ten Commandments”. We must follow the Constitutional Recommendations, and the Ten Suggestions.
The Pope fails to realize the Church leadership is losing more authority because of their progressive movement away from core Catholic beliefs. People are stepping back and asking if the Church continues to be more “inclusive”, at what point do we cease to be Catholic and have become Unitarian?
Get bent, pope Frank.
Pope Francis has called Muslims brothers and sisters. And now he is saying that fellow Christians are creating hate. Its almost as if Francis is deliberately picking the worst possible thing to say on every topic.
Side note to Francis: Try to build a Christian church in Saudi Arabia, and see how much brotherly support you get.
Bishop Fulton Sheen warned about fake Popes like Rancid.
You could plug another religion in there and at least be true.
That is not a direct quote. He did not use the words “conservative Christians.”
The popular misconception about this pope or any pope is that everything they do or say changes doctrine. Nothing could be further from the truth. Those who have left the Church that Jesus founded on Peter should refrain from building themselves up by pointing out the faults of others
Some before him almost as nutty.
You are either good or evil. The force of the left is strong with this one. He is on the wrong side.
Um....No. Just another BAD POPE.
The article did not put in quotes that part.
The title included “rigid”, but it was written by the author of the article.
