Pope Francis assures atheists: You don’t have to believe in God to go to heaven
Filed under: Religion & Philosophy
What about creatures who, we imagine, cannot believe in God? A heaven without cats?
Heaven without cats – oh my goodness, hadn’t thought about that.

The comments on that article are highly amusing.
Lots of atheists getting upset and ranting about something they don’t believe exists
I’ve got news for them (and the Pope)-
“The kingdom of God (i.e. heaven) is within” so you cannot not go to heaven whatever you may believe.

My comment was a specific but light-hearted example of a general question – what about cave men, say who might well not have believed in God, not having had the opportunity.
This is a great example of “gaslighting” which is explained very well by Thomas Sheridan in his speeches and books, and is a feature of the abuse emanating from psychopaths as individuals and psychopathic systems of belief and State. They constantly pull the rug out from under your feet. This “atheists are saved” is bollox and is against RC teaching. It goes along with phenomena such as imminent ice age/global warming, coffee (or eggs, or wine, or blah-de-blah) is bad/good, the armed forces are heroes/piss on bodies or beat up detainees, Muslims are bad/multiculturalism is good, and a hundred other seemingly opposite ideas promoted as truth. Orwell called it Doublethink of course, and it’s designed to make people doubt their Self and make them vulnerable to manipulation.
Pope Francis is full of shit, as has been the case with the Christian church since Constantine ruined the philosophy of JC and made him into a false State God. I agree with Sheridan when he asserts that modern Christianity is now merely a personalty-based death cult, very sad considering the beneficial influence of JC and the castration of his original message at Nicea.
Pope Francis is full of shit. By failing to support the doctrines of his own church, he makes me wonder why more people can’t see that organised religion is merely Statist pantomime and has little to do with the Almighty or the message of JC which, as an atheist, I admit was – at the time – most effective in changing human thought for the better.
It’s such a pity I have no leg to stand on to be able to disagree with you, Richard, on this. It hits the nail on the head.
