This pope gets it. He understands that Atheists are a part of life and instead of belittling them like the previous pope, this guy accepts that you dont have to believe to be good.

And then he had to later reassure everyone that they are still going to hell.

However, I am debating if that is his actual thought on the issue, or if he is simply doing damage control due to backlash from the christian population for making that statement.

The bible is an interesting read for sure. But I don't recall it saying anywhere that I had to hate people who don't share my religion.

I'm Catholic. I'm for gay marriage, I'm pro choice, I have plenty of agnostic and atheist friends, I go to church a few times a month, I never shove my beliefs down people's throats....

It's amazing how we use stereotypes. I honestly don't know many Catholics who fit the "stereotypical " mold.

How can the new so-called leader of Christians suggest that anything but Christ gets one to Heaven?

This should be for every religion. No one has the authority to judge if someone is going to hell or not. that is up to God. The Catholic church doesn't say that any person with different religious views isn't going to be saved either.

He is only saying what is taught in Christianity/Catholicism. I was taught that I can love and befriend anyone I want and it is up to God to choose in the end.

he doesnt "hate" gay people, he just thinks is incorrect like the majority of the people of his age

give it time, and im sure the church will come around about gay people

Hi. I'm an atheist and I approve of this post. I don't see why there are so many butthurt atheists here. If you don't believe in god or heaven, good to you. I don't either. But to have someone as iconic to millions as the pope say that "Hey, atheists are alright" Is fine with me. Maybe there will be less jerk offs around to tell me I'm a heathen now.

now if only he'd change his stance on gays, and start punishing those sick ***** who are banging the altar boys

I am very moved by this. I'm not one of those atheists who thinks that he is persecuted by the religion, or that religion is the cause of all war and hate, or that ************************************* . You know, most atheists. But I have had far too many people tell me that I can't be a moral person without a concept of God. Intelligent people, unfortunately. It's made me mad and sad and not very glad at all, and I wanna shake this man's hand, because I love that he understands that what makes a good person is not the faith he has, but rather the life he lives.

He's simply saying that all people are loved by God and that you don't have to be Christian to do good deeds. This doesn't mean that he thinks it's perfectly fine to be an atheist
