Pope revises limbo for babies

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070420/ap_on_re_eu/vatican_limbo

 

Apparently the pope revised church teachings because "there was reason to hope that babies who die without baptism can go to heaven."

The pope just basically changed a centuries? old teaching on the basis of 'hope'.  If hope can change and alter the Bible teachings, why the hell hasn't reason just ended all this silliness once and for all?!  I just don't get how a catholic can shake his head at a mountain of proof for evolution but breathe a sigh a relief because the pope 'hoped' all those babies out of limbo.  I mean, that guy just saved millions, if not billions of poor little baby souls, right? 

If god takes life he's an indian giver

I wonder where he stands on the souls of priest molested altar boys who commit suicide!

I've said it before and I'll say it again...fuck the pope!

 

Sam Harris discusses the deliberations in "Letter to a Christian Nation". For those that have not read it he said "Can we conceive of a project more intellectually forlon than this? Just imagine what these deliberations must be like. Is there the slightest possibility that someone will present evidence indicating the eternal fate of unbaptized children after death? How can any educated person think this anything but a hilarious, terrifying, and unconscionable wate of time?"

 

Way to go Pope Benedick! Brilliant! Next meeting they will discuss what happens to BGH's sixth toe when he dies.

Amazing. I want see the

Amazing. I want see the evidence for "serious theological and liturgical grounds for hope that unbaptized infants who die will be saved and brought into eternal happiness." That should be a great read.

Mindless, pointless,

Mindless, pointless, head-up-the-ass blathering. I just don't know how anyone could seriously take the Pope or the Church seriously on anything.
