  • Pope Francis: Better to be an atheist than a hypocrite.
  • Better to be an atheist than a non-atheist.
  • Better to be an atheist.
  • Atheist.
  • Personhood is more fundamental than the Universe.
  • Personhood pre-existed the Universe.
  • We mortals don't have infinite power, but a fellow person named god, pre-existed the Universe.
  • Don't study metalogic.
  • Be a mereological simpleton.
  • God being a misconception, doesn't have more fundamental components as memories, moving chunks of information and informational interactions.
  • Be a hypocrite. Be Hindu. Mimic the religion of your parents. Don't be a Catholic because it opens the door to philosophy, science and atheism. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A02:587:4118:9000:7D4A:1441:CDA4:6D52 (talk) 03:10, 15 February 2019 (UTC)

Criticism in a Biography of a Living Person must be sourced to a Secondary Source.Edit

Per WP:BLPSTYLE, criticism may only be included in a biography of a living person if it is sourced to a reliable secondary source. All of the sources given in the "Controversies" section of this article are to news reports and columns, which are primary sources by official Wikipedia policy per WP:PRIMARYNEWS. As such, the entire section on "Controversies" in this article needs to be deleted, as does the section on Archbishop Vigano and statements to the effect that Amoris Laetitia is "controversial".PluniaZ (talk) 18:35, 27 February 2019 (UTC)

Since no one is discussing this on the Talk Page but is instead edit warring on the article page, I will be reporting this violation of WP:BLP to the BLP notice board.PluniaZ (talk) 18:02, 1 March 2019 (UTC)

The open letter signed by 19 theologians is in the news. Perhaps there should be an article. ApexUnderground (talk) 22:42, 9 May 2019 (UTC)
