The clergyman remained unmoved on gay marriage and climate change, but he said evolution was ''probably'' right, and that atheists could ''certainly'' get into heaven.

Please tell me how an atheist can get into heaven?

"Please tell me how an atheist can get into heaven?"

Mortal sin requires full knowledge and complete consent. It presupposes knowledge of the sinful character of the act and its opposition to God's law. It also requires a consent sufficiently deliberate to be a personal choice. Ignorance, through no fault of the individual (referred to as invincible ignorance by the Church), can diminish or even remove the imputability of a grave offense.
