Hell-bent letter

• Of all the inconsequential church bashing that seemed to occupy yesterday's letters page (Letters, January 14), perhaps the most glaringly ignorant was Rob Sadlier's, specifically, his point that the church decrees that non-believers are "damned to Hell for eternity".

He admitted this was, "my (his) understanding", but I would like to know where he got this understanding from?

Which section of the Catechism, the collected church doctrine, condemns six billion of the world's population to Hell? Honestly, I don't think one exists. Maybe Catholics are being confused with our "salvation by faith alone" brethren?
