Not being Catholic, I don't feel that it would be right for me to comment on this Pope other than to say that he has said some pretty bizarre things. This does not surprise me.

I'm not Catholic either,
But to put the situation into a film making metaphor.
If the Bible is supposed to be the Catholic script, seems like this pope forgot a lot of lines and is doing a lot of ad-libbing.

you are taking this claim as fact. do a little research and let's see if this is real.
I could say I'm a millionaire but that doesn't make it so.

Which claim,
that the pope really said Jesus was just a man.
or that Jesus was really God?

Who said the pope actually said this?...

Quote:
In the latest edition of La Repubblica, Pope Francis' longtime atheist friend and interviewer, Eugenio Scalfari, claims that the Pope told him that once Jesus Christ became incarnate, he was a man, a "man of exceptional virtues" but "not at all a God."
That doesn't automatically discount it, but I'm gonna need a little more than an atheist's word on it...

I can't believe you asked me that.
the claim that the Pope said this which would be the antithesis to the entire Catholic teaching and belief.

sorry,
But their are some "Christians" who do claim that Jesus was just "the son of God" or even "a Son of God" and some liberal theologians who say he was "just a man".
I never thought you where any of those but the way your comment was worded I wasn't sure.

The Vatican put out a statement and they do not deny that the Pope said it.

According to Newmax Catholic sources say he didn't say it.

Quote:
After an Italian journalist quoted Pope Francis as saying Jesus was incarnated as a man and not a God, the Vatican came out with a statement saying it was an "interpretation" of the Pope's comments.

"As already stated on other occasions, the words that Dr. Eugenio Scalfari attributes in quotation marks to the Holy Father during talks with him cannot be considered a faithful account of what was actually said but represent a personal and free interpretation of what he heard, as appears completely evident from what is written today regarding the divinity of Jesus Christ," Vatican press director Matteo Bruni's statement read, according to the Catholic News Agency.

Pope Francis, according to Scalfari in La Repubblica, at one time told the self-proclaimed atheist, per reports: "They are the definite proof that Jesus of Nazareth, once he became a man, even if he was a man of exceptional virtue, was not a God."

Scalfari, who is 95, "famously does not take notes during interviews [and] has misrepresented Pope Francis in the past," CNA reported.
