Pope Francis is breaking with tradition and changing the tone of the papacy, both to the delight and chagrin of the Catholic Church.
Atheists welcomed comments by Pope Francis in May that God redeems everyone, even nonbelievers. “The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the Blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone,” the pope told worshipers at morning Mass. “‘Father, the atheists?’ Even the atheists. Everyone!”
