Religion So Long, Limbo

My brother Billy was born was born prematurely and a Catholic priest was rushed to the hospital to baptize him and perform last rites. This was done so that Billy would get into heaven if he died and not have to spend all of eternity in limbo.
Looks like my parents needn’t have bothered.
So the Vatican admits that for 500 years the Church got that limbo thing wrong. Wrong. The Church has been wrong? Yeah, they also admitted a few years ago that they wrong about the whole sun-rotates-around-the-earth thing. Maybe one day they’ll admit they were wrong about the gay thing, the condom thing, the birth control thing, the female clergy thing…
