Pope Francis Says Atheists Can Go To Heaven


If they do good works.

Further evidence (for me) that this Pope is cut from a different, more sensible cloth than his predecessors. Seems unafraid to use common sense in lieu of (at least some) hoary dogma.

Gosh. Not just Catholics? So my "good works" German-Lutheran grandmother might be up thar' in heaven, after all! emoticon

Baby steps. Frankie Boy is off to a good start; he seems to be the guy to get the ball rolling. But there's a heck of a lot more to be done in the damage control department.

(Interesting posts below the article. I agree that those who are not Christians -- who may know zilch about the man Jesus -- may find the pope's comments somewhat patronizing.)

I'm sure he does. From his perspective, heaven exists and he's not going to keep you out just because you didn't believe heaven was real.

I'm a born-again-agnostic-borderline-athiest who feels organized religion is a scourge and I find Pope Frankie-boi to be a long overdue breath of fresh air.
