Pope Francis notes St. Paul announced Christ to idol worshipers without attacking them.

It is a straw man and utterly false equivalency re: the pagan idols brought into the Church of Santa Maria.

In this sad situation, no one has attacked any idol worshipers. Absolutely none. Also, St. Paul did not place any idols at the foot of the Cross. St. Paul did not participate (in any way) in the adoration of idols. In short, St. Paul converted pagans without glorifying their idols. St. Paul knew the first commandment.
