So the Pope said that dogs can go to Heaven? I don’t know about that. Has the church been baptizing them? Have they been munching on transubstantiated doggy biscuits?
This is what the catechism of the Catholic Church says about Hell:
1034 Jesus often speaks of “Gehenna” of “the unquenchable fire” reserved for those who to the end of their lives refuse to believe and be converted, where both soul and body can be lost. Jesus solemnly proclaims that he “will send his angels, and they will gather … all evil doers, and throw them into the furnace of fire,” and that he will pronounce the condemnation: “Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire!”
1035 The teaching of the Church affirms the existence of hell and its eternity. Immediately after death the souls of those who die in a state of mortal sin descend into hell, where they suffer the punishments of hell, “eternal fire.” The chief punishment of hell is eternal separation from God, in whom alone man can possess the life and happiness for which he was created and for which he longs.
So unless these dogs are accepting Christ into their canine hearts and barking their love for their Lord and Savior, according to the catechism of the Catholic Church and the Bible itself, Jesus is going to send his angels to throw those of us who refuse to believe and be converted, into the “eternal fire” where we belong.
I’ll see your dog in Hell.
On a more serious note. This is what the catechism of the Catholic Church says about Hell. This is what my Catholic friends and family think I and countless others deserve. This is what they call “good news” a “message of love.” It’s so monstrous and horrible, besides being goddamned ridiculous. It blows my fucking mind.
