News: The Pope seems to be saving that atheists are saved by Christ's blood! See the Vatican Radio website here for the article. It says in part "The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the Blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone! ‘Father, the atheists?’ Even the atheists. Everyone! And this Blood makes us children of God of the first class! We are created children in the likeness of God and the Blood of Christ has redeemed us all! And we all have a duty to do good. And this commandment for everyone to do good, I think, is a beautiful path towards peace. If we, each doing our own part, if we do good to others, if we meet there, doing good, and we go slowly, gently, little by little, we will make that culture of encounter: we need that so much. We must meet one another doing good. ‘But I don’t believe, Father, I am an atheist!’ But do good: we will meet one another there.”

I found the news article by way of the an article called "Atheism makes headway with comments by Pope, Arizona lawmaker". In contrast see the article called "No, the Pope Didn't Just Say All Atheists Go to Heaven". See also this MSNBC link which has a video.
