    Post Vatican: Everyone not in the Catholic church goes to hell

    Vatican Representative: Just to Be Clear, Atheists Are Still Going to Hell

    May 24, 2013 By Hemant Mehta Leave a Comment
    Yesterday, I posted about something interesting Pope Francis said in a recent homily — namely, that even atheists could be “redeemed” if they were good people:
    “The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the Blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone! ‘Father, the atheists?’ Even the atheists. Everyone! And this Blood makes us children of God of the first class! We are created children in the likeness of God and the Blood of Christ has redeemed us all! And we all have a duty to do good. And this commandment for everyone to do good, I think, is a beautiful path towards peace. If we, each doing our own part, if we do good to others, if we meet there, doing good, and we go slowly, gently, little by little, we will make that culture of encounter: we need that so much. We must meet one another doing good. ‘But I don’t believe, Father, I am an atheist!’ But do good: we will meet one another there.
    Many atheists thought it was pretty damn nice of the Pope to say that… even if the idea of being “saved” or “redeemed” thanks to Christ’s death is all made up.
    We all knew that sense of one-ness and actions-speak-louder-than-prayers wasn’t going to last very long. As the Pope’s words made their way around the world, a Vatican spokesman had to do some damage control and remind everybody that atheists, in fact, are going to hell unless they accept Jesus:
    Rev. Thomas Rosica

    On Thursday, the Vatican issued an “explanatory note on the meaning to ‘salvation.’”
    The Rev. Thomas Rosica, a Vatican spokesman, said that people who know about the Catholic church “cannot be saved” if they “refuse to enter her or remain in her.”
    (That’s what she said.)
    Okay, okay, so that’s what we were expecting all along. Atheists, according to Christians, are going to hell unless we accept Christ’s divinity. We already knew that. It was still an unusual and welcome gesture from the Pope to recognize that everyone, regardless of beliefs, can do good and “be saved” — at least it was a step up from what we’re used to hearing.

    Looks like not just people who don't support Taylor Swift go to hell.

    Is this not the premise of every religion ever?

    ^Lol, right? Obviously only Catholics are going to heaven... unless the Christian God isn't real. If the Islamic God is real, then only Muslims will go to heaven, so on and so forth. And all are equally as likely to be real so... meh.

    The arrogance of people.

    If the Hebrew god is real, everyone who doesn't believe in The Book of Mormon doesn't go to heaven.

    If the Flying Spaghetti Monster is real, I believe everyone goes to heaven.

    One truth in what you said is that not all religions lead to the same place (heaven). Some people believe that as long as you believe in a "god" then all paths lead to the same destination. THAT is false.

    As for the arrogance of people, that is what caused the "invention" of religions.

    Are all religions not "invented"?

    No matter what you believe, you are not going to heaven if you are a woman but do not support Taylor Swift.
