Default Pope: It's better to be an atheist than...

The above title is how the NY Post headline reads; however, according to the same article, this is what Pope Francis actually said referring to bad self called "Catholics":

Quote:
“How many times have we all heard people say, ‘If that person is a Catholic, it is better to be an atheist.'”

These "Catholics" are giving bad example and are causing scandal thus giving a bad reputation to our Faith.

Jesus said:

[Mark]
{9:41} And whoever will have scandalized one of these little ones who believe in me: it would be better for him if a great millstone were placed around his neck and he were thrown into the sea.

People who may be looking for God or conversion, might be discouraged by the bad behavior of these people.
