[BlogEntry] All Babies Go To Heaven

The new Pope has made it official – unbaptized babies who die still get to go to Heaven. This has been a theological debate for decades, and basically the primary reason for the whole concept of Limbo, a place between Heaven and Hell. Here's the deal: unbaptized babies still have original sin, and thus if they die, they can't get into Heaven. That's sort of the whole point of baptism to begin with. But nobody wants to believe that newborn babies have done anything to deserve a straight ticket to Hell, either. The official document now says that "grace has priority over sin, and the exclusion of innocent babies from heaven does not seem to reflect Christ's special love for children."

Oh my, the anti-Catholic folks are going to have a field day with "Christ's special love for children."
