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.

Good deeds and evil deeds are still good and evil regardless of whether or not they're in the name of God. If you give money to the poor, or save someone's life, etc, you don't need to be a believer in God for those to be good things.

But what Francis said (not mentioned here but in his full statement) was that atheists can be redeemed, and that simply goes against the Bible. So while it's true that atheists can do good things, it is still only through Christ that we can be saved.

It was kind of sad to hear this story. I was liking him.

"IF they do good",when some are like "Ahaha christian fags,how can you beleive in that **** ?" Same with Christians aswell,making the legit Christians look like assholes.

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

Well of course!

From a logically religious point of view (hue hue hue logicl rligos ez a oxymoron so fanny) atheists can get to haven in terms of Abrahamic religions perspective.

According to the understanding of what is God from an Abrahamic stand point, humans are judged on FAITH and ACTIONS. And great acts of kindness for others can be more "measurable" than acts of faith.

So one could argue that EXTREMELY GOOD DEEDS in life can potentially compensate for lack of faith.

However, oh much good deeds are supposedly required to compensate? Personally, I have no idea.

Okay, so this is really nice and everything that the pope seems not to be a bigot, but why do atheists care if they can get in to heaven? That's kind of the point of being atheist. You don't believe in all of that.

Isn't there some ancient prophecy that's been pretty accurate so far that says this pope will be the last pope ever?

as a slightly devout Christian, this makes me very happy (:

The Pope said atheists can be "saved" by good works. Rev. Thomas Rosica, a Vatican spokesman, "clarified" saying people who know about Catholicism can't be "saved” if they “refuse to enter her or remain in her.”

yeah, because a vatican rep. has more credibility than the leader of the catholic church
