Do All Dogs Go To Heaven?



Well, no - Pope Francis did not say that!  Perhaps people like Michael Savage should do a bit more research before referring to Pope Francis in derogatory terms.

As of this posting, here are some sites which still have it wrong:

Now, while Pope Francis did NOT say that - Pope Paul VI did. In the NY Times retraction/correction of their misattribution they said:
Those remarks were once made by Pope Paul VI to a distraught child, and were cited in a Corriere della Sera article
What Pope Francis ACTUALLY said was:
The Holy Scripture teaches us that the fulfillment of this wonderful design also affects everything around us.
I hope we've cleared the air a bit on this now.
