Pope warns the church could collapse

THE Catholic Church will "fall like a house of cards" unless its leaders strike a "new balance" between their political activities and their spiritual mission, Pope Francis has warned.

In his first major interview, he said its moral edifice might crumble if it doesn't balance its rules about abortion, gays and contraception with the need to "make the church a merciful, more welcoming place for all".
