I understand that this is not dogma. There is no obligation to accept it, and I don’t.
This is an example of what a strictly political pope does.
He does nothing about important challenges facing the Church, for example, the sharp decline in numbers of priests or even exhorting them to live chaste lives or even knowing them.

The joy of being a cat is that he doesn’t have to face moral issues in his life, but then again, he won’t be going to Heaven, so I’m fine with our statuses.
Are there generic cats in Heaven? Dunno.
