It's quite disappointing that when the most highly respected religious authority in the world tries to bring a little tolerance and brotherly love into the church, his subordinates immediately strike it down, amirite?
The pope recently said that everyone, even atheists, can achieve salvation if they do good. Jesus' sacrifice was for everyone and He redeemed us all, including atheists. And everyone else in the Vatican has decided that the pope didn't really mean what he said; no one can be saved without believing in Jesus. He's trying to drag the Catholic church into the 21st century and they're fighting him every step of the way. Keep it up, Francis. You da man.
