The Pope is Downsizing the Universe. Limbo to Go.

Due to financial considerations the Pope is closing down Limbo. The eternal realm of bliss for babies who were born with original sin and who died before baptism could get them off the hook, was deemed too expensive to maintain and the duplication of services was seen as wasteful.

All children, in or destined for limbo will, after this point, be sent to... (flip coin) heaven.

This is the second cost cutting move recently. It comes on the heels of a Vatican attempt to save money on interior decorating by preventing gays from entering the priesthood.

Come on Pope-ster! I kid 'cause I love! (Actually, I kid because it's easy and fun.)

Huh. The religion blog claims this:

Instead, the new belief is expected to be that unbaptised babies will go directly to heaven.

...but on the Today show Wednesday morning, they had some Priest-theologian guy who said that the church had pretty much decided not to decide what the babies' fate would be--they would "trust it to God" to make the right decision, or something. Sounds like they don't have their talking points coordinated.

Perhaps they don't want to place limitations on God's right to sent some of the noisier babies to the karma wheel for recycling through reincarnation. No one wants to go to a heaven that is full of cranky babies.
