salvation for the unchurched
Question from gayledebruge on 12/4/2012:

what is the church's teaching regarding the salvation of the unchurched such as the pigmyies. Can they go to heaven?

Answer by Richard Geraghty on 1/6/2013:

Dear Gayledgeburge,

The Church teaches that those who have no knowledge of the Catholic faith still have a conscience. While their conscience may not be perfect, they still know and murdering, raping, lying and pillaging are wrong. God will judge them on that basis.

Dr. Geraghty
