Here is an article about the latest from pope francis: http://www.independent.c...o-to-heaven-8810062.html

Exert:

In comments likely to enhance his progressive reputation, Pope Francis has written a long, open letter to the founder of La Repubblica newspaper, Eugenio Scalfari, stating that non-believers would be forgiven by God if they followed their consciences.

Responding to a list of questions published in the paper by Mr Scalfari, who is not a Roman Catholic, Francis wrote: “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.

“Sin, even for those who have no faith, exists when people disobey their conscience.”

While the article is interesting on it's own, the comments section is a gold mine. For instance, I learned that the 10 Commandments are of no importance, the only thing that matters is faith in jesus christ. That statement must be true because it got 26 likes BigGrin
