…Because rearranging the divine order of the universe is easy, apparently.

Although Catholics have long believed that children who die without being baptized still have original sin and are thus excluded from heaven, the church has no formal doctrine on the matter, Vatican officials have noted.

When you're only doing it on our end, it's actually pretty easy.

I think this is the funniest quote in the entire article:
Asked if the document will “tip the balance in the favor of heaven” for babies now believed to go to limbo, Archbishop Bruno Forte told state TV, “I hope so.”

Like babies can tell the difference between one thing or the other.
Of course you will. All intelligent beings dream. Nobody knows why.

Also, tell random people they are awsome! it helps!

its times like these, that make me happy that Martin Luther helped us break away from the catholic faith, but insulted by my religious roots

LOL! Catholicism always succeeds in massive amounts of dumbassery and hypocracy. After all, changing what the rules say WILL change what god does to dead babies…

Being a Catholic myself, I'm not quite bothered by the whole thing. The impression I got was that the Vatican simply didn't have a clear stance on the subject of unbaptised babies and limbo so is now investigating the matter. Meanwhile, everyone else was forming their own opinions about limbos and babies.

It reminds me of a brilliant show, “Father Ted,” and a wonderful few lines delivered by Father Dougal

“You remember how it used to be that we couldn't eat meat on Fridays? And now we can. So what about those people that used to eat meat on Fridays? Do they still go to Hell? It's mad!”
Handshakes and mustaches are the only ways to know how much you can truly trust a man.
