Totally goes against my Catechism class.
Pope Confirms All Dogs Go to Heaven
I was taught that while animals have souls, they do not have rational souls. As they cannot choose the salvation of Christ, dogs cannot share in the eternal unity of Christ.
I feel misled. I feel like my grandparents did after Vatican II, when they were told they could eat meat on Fridays after all, that it was just a silly rule they could now ignore. All those years -- lied to.
Good for the boy and his dog, I suppose.
