So anyway i still love the Pope's message. I think it expresses the beliefs of many people in the church, not just lay people either. As a Catholic, i take his message and still value it regardless of what the Vatican feels it needs to do. Like i said, if it weren't for the fact that their are varying opinions among them, i probably would have left the church completely a long time ago.
As for the second part.. I do think everyone can do good in the eyes of man regardless of religion. But not all can go to heaven or be clean or
"good" in the eyes of God. And Christ did come to die and to redeem everyone.. but we have to accept the redemption.
