Now this puts a whole new light on things.....

I expected this to be some Southern state's new law abolishing leaning over backwards and walking under a stick.

My favourite quote from the article: "The Pope, himself, has been quoted in the past as saying that he would let the idea of limbo "drop, since it has always been only a theological hypothesis".

Unlike those iron-clad proven hypotheses like heaven, hell, god, virgin birth etc.

Also astonished by theologians, most notably that they EXIST!
