If a Priest told your father,'only Catholics can go to heaven' then he misspoke or your Dad misunderstood him, or the Priest didn't clarify it.
If you're interested in the truth of what the Catholic Church teaches on salvation, check out:
catholic.com/tracts/salvation-outside-the-chu...
Or go straight to the Catechism chapter 3 article 9 paragraph 3, 819
scborromeo.org/ccc/p123a9p3.htm
"Basing itself on Scripture and Tradition, the Council teaches that the Church, a pilgrim now on earth, is necessary for salvation:"

Later, it says that if one doesn't know Christ "through no fault of their own," they can be saved.

Question -- what happened to all the Protestants that the church taught for almost 400 years would surely go to Hell?

Do they get out of Hell now and just become lonely?

Your church keeps changing its perfect teachings.

Why? Because it's all imaginary and it doesn't matter. Therefore, serious theological questions such as the one above are seen as silly.

If it weren't imaginary, that would be a very serious question.

These nuns are better known as Radical "emancipated" feminists who have "bought into" (secular liberal humanism) just like the rest of the majority of the 42,000 contradicting and conflicting "protestant inconsistent denominations"...... Bible only "relative truth" is the basis of their editorialized beliefs, in which each one of their "liberal personal opinions" are the final authority. Natural Law has always been the teachings and doctrine of the TRUTH and the Catholic Church for over 2000 years. NO ONE is forcing "anybody" to belong the the Catholic Church and thee radical nuns are no exception. The teachings of the Catholic Church as not a "matter of each persons opinion" but obedience to the biblical and historical TRUTHS. If people don't like it, then go down the street to the nearest Protestant Church and they will tell these nuns "what they want to hear"!! In tens years, these elderly (post vatican 2) liberal nuns will be "long gone" and replaced by the thousands upon thousands of dedicated young, new vocations who are dedicated to their vocations, to wearing their habits, to the teachings of the Church, to the bible and the Magesterium in bringing people to Jesus Christ (BY THE TRUTH).
I haven't seen a nun in years.

this is just a lil tidbit of sense for you today since you can't seem to let me go;)
Oh ... let me guess ... you know truth, so you are holy and I am evil for not believing in your dogmas.

It's an old story taught to little children that had no protection from such lies.

Catholics believe Protestant dogma is evil, and Protestants believe Catholic dogma is evil ... and you both read the same bible.

Can't you see how stupid it is to keep that fight going and going and going.

What happened to "love your neighbor?"

You are so caught up in believing you are special, you vilify those who don't agree with your own interpretations of scriptures.

I put that book down years ago, as I could see, it caused nothing but trouble.

btw - if you were actually a smart & coy opposer of Goodness & Truth, you'd be encouraging & promoting catholicism since it's much more on your side than you could ever imagine.
Surely you jest!

As was all religion, the Catholic church was created out of lies. A Jew would never have promoted Catholicism as being based on truth. A Jew would be faithful ONLY to his sect of Judaism ... period.

For the record, Catholics do not 'crucify the Lord afresh with every ceremony'
Maybe you ought to learn what Catholics really believe? Did that thought ever cross your mind??
Are you afraid of learning what the Church actually believes? Or would you rather stay comfortably ignorant??
You won't be able to plug your ears and say 'la la la la la la' your whole life man.
1st off, i didn't comdemn you to hell, but i am saying that the RCC IS NOT YOUR SALVATION so you should figure out Who is before it's too late.

2nd - did you forget already that i told you i grew up in the RCC and attended a RCC school? i do know what the RCC teaches and it did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to promote a real relationship with God. i got that as an adult after hearing the unadulterated, non-RCC Gospel of Jesus Christ! i have since been voluntarily baptized (is there any other way???) as a symbolic ceremony of being washed by the Blood of the Lamb and regenerated in spirit through filling of the Holy Spirit.

So...when you say you are an atheist....you are lying....you are a fraud...you are nothing more than an old woman, who for whatever reason, has a deep hatred for Christianity and Christians...

The good news is...there is still hope that you will spend eternity in Heaven..because you refuse, as all "atheist" to slam that door shut and thereby seal your fate.

They insist on trying to manipulate an imaginary Jew to do their will.

They put so much mental prayer and investment into those beliefs that it's close to being their whole world to them, and they don't want to be let down.

It's understandable.

Maybe you didn't notice that I stated I have no use for ALL religion.

It teaches people to defend their own beliefs in fantasy ... of all the ridiculous nonsense.

The history of religion amounts to nothing but lies, torture and bloodshed, and it continues today without any hesitation.

The Protestants also dripped with blood as Luther taught his followers that killing was necessary and just, if committed for the right reasons ... which of course were Luther's "reasons."

I suggest that even if there was such a place as a Christian heaven, unless they first converted to Christianity, Jews would not be allowed ... so your supposed savior Jesus would be missing.

AWWWW I suggest that you knock-off the pedophile insults. Protestant-churches also have their pedophile issues that pop out when least expected. Those preachers all covered up molestations, as they didn't want the HOLY name of their churches to suffer.

The Catholic church took the brunt of the pedophile scandal, but they were far from alone if the truth be known.

Num 26:61 And Nadab and Abihu died, when they offered strange fire before the LORD.
Num 26:62 And those that were numbered of them were twenty and three thousand, all males from a month old and upward: for they were not numbered among the children of Israel, because there was no inheritance given them among the children of Israel.
Num 26:63 These are they that were numbered by Moses and Eleazar the priest, who numbered the children of Israel in the plains of Moab by Jordan near Jericho.
Num 26:64 But among these there was not a man of them whom Moses and Aaron the priest numbered, when they numbered the children of Israel in the wilderness of Sinai.
ONLY TWO OF THE THOUSANDS THAT ORIGINALLY LEFT EGYPT CROSSED THE JORDON RIVER...BECAUSE OF THEIR DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD'S WORD...THE REST OF THEM DIED IN THE WILDERNESS...
Num 26:65 For the LORD had said of them, They shall surely die in the wilderness. And there was not left a man of them, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun.

You offer STRANGE FIRE upon the altar before God because you do not return unto God that which has spoken forth...

YOU RETURN YOUR OWN CONJECTURE UNTO HIM IN YOUR DISOBEDIENCE TO HIS WORD...

How do you know this?

One would think if this is the case, then "God" would at least step in to correct the mishap, but hasn't.

Floods

Almost 5000 years ago, some scientists believe, a large asteroid or comet crashed into the Indian Ocean, producing a tsunami about 13 times as big as the one that inundated Southeast Asia in December 2004. That almost every culture throughout history has had a flood myth, of which Noah and the Ark is the most famous in the Western world, demonstrates the fear and awe that floods inspire in human consciousness.
