Here is the source document. It is in German, so just feed it through your favorite translator application.

It is being reported that there is a feud between Pope Benedict XVI and the current bishop of Rome, Francis.

Now, I usually don’t do rumors. However two things are very important with respect to this news.

First is that the source is being reported as Giuseppi Nardi. Don’t get any better than that. Furthermore, it appeared at the Pew Sitter news site. That is a big plus also.

Next, it is being reported at The Gateway Pundit website. And as most of my readers know, The Gateway Pundit website has a very large following.

Oh and this here...

Therefore, I am passing this along

Here is the original Gateway Pundit post…

Many conservatives in America and around the world are at odds with Pope Francis’ Leftist politics. It appears his predecessor, now Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, is not a fan of the current Pope’s strong personality.

Translated from a German report by Pewsitter.com:

Speaking at a March 16th conference in Limburg, Germany, the long-time Vatican correspondent Andreas Englisch has delivered an explosive allegation: In contradiction of public appearances, Pope Francis and Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI “are in complete disagreement” and “never speak to one another.” The Pope Emeritus has apparently stated that he only appears in public “at the explicit request of Pope Francis.” What is shown on these occasions, Englisch continues, is “only the pretense of friendship.”

No official transcript of the press conference is yet available, but Giuseppe Nardi, another well-known Vaticanist who was in attendance, says that Englisch continued his statements by describing Pope Francis as a “strong personality” who “gets what he wants,” and that he has little in common with Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI but “uses him when necessary for the optics.”
