    The pope telling catholics that purgatory doesn't exist.

    The previous pope begging his servants to "tell the people the truth about hell."(that it doesn't exist as they have taught for centuries. That it was only used as a fearmongering tool to get people into the church and giving their cash. That it really only is "The common grave of mankind" and you do not burn there forever.)
