To defend the Pope

I’m tired of hearing, “The Pope is a heretic, so he can’t be Pope…”
How I show that Pope Francis isn’t a heretic? He says Poe Francis denied the Great Commission, saying that the Holy Father commented, “To convince someone of your faith is illicit.”

Pope Francis isn’t perfect but he’s NOT a heretic.
