Colbert disappointed in pope's remarks on redemption for atheists

 |  NCR Today

Stephen Colbert was distraught at Pope Francis' remarks regarding atheists in his latest homily. Christ's redemption including atheists in his latest homily.

According to Catholic News Service, the pope was speaking of people of all or no faith working together to do good. "The Lord has redeemed us all with the blood of Christ, all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone," he said. Some may ask, "'Father, even the atheists?' Them, too. Everyone."
