Then years after leaving the church and belief in the white bearded guy who lived in the clouds, I learned that all those babies who died without getting baptized didn't really have to spend their whole eternity in Limbo. I guess there was some kind of mistake and the Pope heard that they had all really gone to heaven. Innocents, except for original sin.
Now the Catholic Church is flipping off the more rightwing believers in Opus Dei by saying maybe it is okay for divorced people to take communion. And also for Catholics not to be judgmental about gays. Which is a good thing since as I remember things, half of the priests were gay.
Don't get me wrong. As a non believer I still like many things about the Catholicism I grew up with, except for that whole guilt thing. The basic message of kindness and charity was always a winner. But this other stuff was just politics gone wild. This new Pope is a likable guy.
