No more limbo

The BBC reports that the Vatican is thinking about doing away with limbo – the doctrine that unbaptised babies don’t quite make it to heaven but they don’t get sent straight into the inferno.

It’s great that the Pope is helping out the little babies and it’s sure to be a vote winner in the religious popularity contest. I bet he would win a whole bunch more votes though if he just sent everyone to heaven whether they were Catholic or not. While he is at it, maybe he could do away with the unpleasant traditions like Lent and no meat on Fridays.

If you were Pope, what elements of doctrine would you change?

  1. I’m having trouble choosing just one…so here’s a few.

    I would do away with confession. Uffa, now that’s a bother. Having to tell a stranger your secrets or sins as they call them (sometimes make some up just to have something to tell the priest on Saturdays.)

    And I totally hated having to shake some stranger’s hand in church, or worse still, kissing them, usually first thing in the morning.

    And the rosary…so much repetition….goes on forever.

    Dare I go on?????
