With this he hits a disproportionately large rusty nail with a sledgehammer.
Because there is a lot that is wrong, for almost 2 millennia. The church has been hypocritical in principle from the beginning (ie sometime after Christ in Rome). The church with all kinds of dogmas did not stand for peace and love, but for power, oppression and fear (the threat of eternal hellfire).
On behalf of the Church, millions have died not too pleasantly. All critical people had to deal with the clergy (priest class). The crusades were raids, accompanied by attempts to slaughter Muslims, Arabs, Moors or other unchristian scum on a large scale.
In Europe, naturopaths were burned as witches, apostates had to do penance after a gruesome torture and still admit that they were wrong, after which the wheel broke, scourged, beheaded or the noose led to the end. The Inquisition was deployed on a large scale, which from Spain ravaged all of Europe for centuries. Entire orders of faith, including Templars and Huguenots, were hunted, expelled or destroyed. Today there are still Roman dignitaries who long for the Inquisition.
Also, many 'sinners' over the centuries have been forgiven for considerable sacrifices, the so-called indulgences. It was once so insane that indulgences could be bought in advance for the sins that might yet be committed. The church needed money and they raked in a lot of it.
Furthermore, several popes have blessed armed conflicts, even full-scale wars. A few years ago the match balls of the football club RKC (yes really: Roman Catholic Club) were blessed by a local idiot, in order to prevent relegation. (luckily this was not successful)
People who want to disengage, this is not made easy. Until recently, the pastor came by when a devout couple had only two or three children. More children was certainly desirable for the Catholic Church. Certainly with today's knowledge, where we know that very regularly children were, and still are, abused and killed, also by nuns.
“People pretend to be so good and decent and only worry about the mistakes of others rather than their own,” said the Pope. Here it is necessary to distinguish one from the other. Out of respect for good believers, who should not be classified among the wicked, I would like to mention three times two kinds: the Christians and the Christians, as well as the nefarious and Jews, but also Muslims and Muslims. There are unfortunately far too few of them with a capital letter. I am not insulting anyone here. If one does feel tackled, then this concerns the fake believers with a small letter. I therefore call on many believers to take a look in the ethical mirror once in a while.
And what about the Pope himself? If he really was such a good guardian of souls, shouldn't he now be a pastor in the slums of Buenos Aires instead of chief guard with billions in gold in the vaults of the Vatican? Gold that could very well be spent far from the holy seat?
And what about politics? Do members and voters of religious parties all agree? Can Christians and Christians go through one door together? There are many rich and many poor fellow believers. One is social, the other is very conservative, the one is pacifist, while there are many 'believers' scumbags walking around. All gathered in one batch. With regard to the latter difference, this should really not occur. Wasn't Jesus ever a pacifist who wanted to beat swords into plows, who turned his left cheek after being struck on the right?
Politically, religious parties should not be allowed into parliament. Because who exactly do the MPs of the CDA, of the CU, the SGP, but also of Denk represent? The capital letters or the hypocritical members? The militants or the peace-loving? The pro or the anti EU thinkers? Say it. Precisely also to solve these dilemmas the goals of AS can offer a solution, especially if we look at the constitution which states that the Netherlands is a secular nation, in which church and state should be separated.
