A state rep from New Hampshire said that Pope Francis is the anti-Christ in a Facebook post. Nice, huh?
She wrote it on the day that Pope Francis criticized Donald Trump’s immigration stance. You might imagine this caused quite a bit of consternation among Catholics. So now she’s lying ( allegedly because hey, we live in a litigious age) and saying that he was just referring to the papacy itself as the anti-Christ, not Pope Francis personally. (Even though she was clearly referring to the immigration ruckus and said “I’m not sure who the Pope truly has in his heart.”
She added, according to Politico, “I’m not saying the pope is going to start growing horns and a tail and start poking people.”
So you see, she’s perfectly reasonable and all. No anti-Catholicism going on here.
