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