"One day, we will see our animals again in the eternity of Christ. Paradise is open to all of God's creatures."
-Pope Francis (full article below)
I've been noticing how some of my fellow Copts have been quoting Pope Francis and to be honest I never felt comfortable with that. His comment on gay people (saying who are we to judge) was alright ("Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?" Matthew 7:3 NIV). Then his comment on atheists was a bit more controversial; he said if someone doesn't believe in God but still does good deeds, they'll go to heaven. Then he makes this comment about animals going to heaven. Is it me or has this guy gone to far? Don't get my wrong I have a dog myself which I love dearly but I understand it has no soul or place in heaven. But seriously, what's up with this guy? Heretic much?
