The point is that people should not forget what we are dealing with here, it is still a group that collects money, doesn't pay any taxes, protects child rapists, force feeds children the Idea that they are somehow cursed and only through them can they be saved (although this last one I don't know how works with the whole "atheists are fine too" thing).

The catholic church makes it easy to leave due to its nature, it is a religion founded on hate, mysoginy, murder, genocide and other idiotic ideas. The fact that they are changing (or rather masking) these ideas just makes it that much harder for people to see them for what they realy are, that is what apologists are all about, making their nonsense more palatable so that more people will believe so they give them money.

The day that the Pope goes, "We are stoping tithes effective immediately and selling everything to pay for the victims of our wrong doings, from now on priesthood will not be compensated economically" then I will believe it's all in good faith, untill then I think it is just a publicity stunt.


I can understand your resentment, I'm not a fan of the Vatican either---far from it.

However your original sentiment seemed to be one of overwhelming indignation at the Pope's statement, rather than anything else. My point was that previous Popes have said far worse things, and that the Vatican has a whole list of things that you could get worked up about before you get to the fact that the Pope just said atheists can go to heaven.

What the hell, I thought God spoke through the pope. Why would they need damage control and revert statements if God speaks to them, that makes no sense. That link has obviously got to be fake, God doesn't just change his mind.

On a more serious note. That is just hilarious. - Nope, sorry, you're still going to hell. - Aw gee thanks man!
