Pope Francis has a Master’s degree! See why it’s controversial
Pope Francis, the current head of the Catholic Church, stirs up controversy with just about everything he has done.
This surprising news takes the cake.
He is a massive supporter of the scientific community, for good reason. A little known fact about the Pope is that he has a strong academic background, graduating from the University of Buenos Aires with a Master’s degree in chemistry! Some feel that this interest in science is at odds with the Catholic mission.
Another Jesuit member of the Catholic Church, Guy Consolmagno, explained his fascination with asteroids. Guy explained that studying science is like playing a puzzle with God, and it makes him feel as if he is interacting with the Creator!
Perhaps this explains Pope Francis’ religious views, as well as his fascination with science!http://ift.tt/NwKJVL
Honestly, what is controversial about this?
