    You don't have to believe in God to go to heaven now?

    I'm reminded of the phrase 'everyone gets a trophy'.

    As is so often the case, the Pontiff's words have been twisted to the point that they bear little resemblance to what he actually said. Mind you, I'm about the last person to be making apologies for the RCC and it's authorities, but fair is fair. He did not say "Atheists will go to Heaven..."

    On the other hand, he did say this... "“Sin, even for those who have no faith, exists when people disobey their conscience.” I find that rather refreshing, coming from that quarter.

    Check out the comments of the second link (the one on Masonry), it's a hoot. Like most uninformed parties, what is being said is sometimes preposterous and at times just plain hilarious.

    No argument there. Such stunning and clearly willful ignorance never cease to amaze me.

    The Catholic Church....... I love philosophy and write it....... But they have none, they all blindly follow an elected leader.

    Ignorance drove my father to be abusive, my smarts drove me to formulate a plan since I was little. His ignorance of me put him in court. Smarts put me in a great life.

    Ignorance, wreaks. Smarts Steer.

    You mean, like Republicans wanted us to do with little Bush and Democrats want us to do with Obama?
