Absolution for everyone!
Or maybe not…
People are outraged by Pope’s Francis’ assertions that atheists will be in Heaven. He wrote an open letter to the former editor of an Italian newspaper on Wednesday. The letter exceeded 2500 words, but it only took a few sentences for nearly everyone on the planet to take notice.
According to one article, a few of those sentences stated:
You ask me if the God of the Christians forgives those who don’t believe and who don’t seek the faith. I start by saying – and this is the fundamental thing – that God’s mercy has no limits if you go to him with a sincere and contrite heart. The issue for those who do not believe in God is to obey their conscience.
He went on to say that:
Sin, even for those who have no faith, exists when people disobey their conscience.
