New developments in Catholicism
Pope Francis recently wrote that Atheists can go to heaven if they follow their consciences. I don't doubt that his heart is in the right place here. It's a kindly gesture. But I'm not sure this is a good idea. Think of that poor Atheist. There they are, late at night, driving drowsily along a dark and snowy country road and, bam, suddenly they're in Heaven. Angels are singing, puttis are flying happily about, top notch sushi bars are freely available. The Atheist is handed a perfect macchiato. The Atheist looks up to see The Lord God smiling beneficently over the vast paradise.
And the Atheist, right there, drops dead from the shock.
