In this article from the Canadian Broadcasting Corp (CBC), it appears that pope Benedict is looking at changing centuries old roman Catholic LAW that unbaptized babies will never get to heaven and spend ETERNITY (that's a loooooong time folks) in limbo for :
- a sin they did not commit
- by people who did not exist
- to a god nobody's ever seen and who most probably doesn't exist.
Now someone tell me. What happens to the supposed souls of babies who are NOW in limbo (supposedly) and to the religious parents of those babies who have been living a world of torture, anguish and pain 'knowing' their dead unbaptized babies would never meet them in heaven?
Religion is probably the most cruel human practice I know of.
