This is the latest statement that the Pope Francis made There Is No Hell Fire; Adam & Eve Not Real. What does the Church have to say about it?

The statements ascribed to Pope Francis by that article are not true. It is a hoax.

Right I'm having trouble finding his transcripts. But he is just a leader right, it doesn't matter what he says or is said about him. –  deleteMe Jan 3 at 19:57

The article that was quoted does not accually exist. It was a false story that was brought forth from the diversity chronicle. They provided a disclaimer on the article found here: disclaimer

While that article in particular is a hoax... Each point in particular has been made and is old news.

  • Benedict XVI said that Genesis is based on a myth
  • Benedict XVI said that Heaven and Hell are not actual places
  • Benedict XVI abolished Limbo of the Children.
  • Francis says that atheists can be saved.

Benedict XVI called Genesis a rehashing of pagan myths The pagan creation accounts on which the biblical story is in part based end without exception in the establishment of a cult, but the cult in this case is situated in the cycle of the do ut des.” “Cardinal” Joseph Ratzinger, A New Song for the Lord, 1995, p. 86:

Benedict XVI abolished the Limbo of the Children and rejects infant baptism "This state people called limbo. In the course of our century, that has gradually come to seem problematic to us. This was one way in which people sought to justify the necessity of baptizing infants as early as possible, but the solution is itself questionable" “Cardinal” Joseph Ratzinger, God and the World, 2000, p. 401:

In this case, I guess we should open a new question and discuss those subjects –  Fischer Jan 5 at 18:53
    
    
I thought limbo was eliminated for children at Vatican II. Am I confused? –  Sean McMillan Feb 14 at 19:28
