NYT corrects: Pope didn’t open heaven to pets

A New York Times story by Rick Gladstone carries a hefty correction explaining that pooches are still barred from everlasting paradise:

An earlier version of this article misstated the circumstances of Pope Francis’ remarks. He made them in a general audience at the Vatican, not in consoling a distraught boy whose dog had died. The article also misstated what Francis is known to have said. According to Vatican Radio, Francis said: “The Holy Scripture teaches us that the fulfillment of this wonderful design also affects everything around us,” which was interpreted to mean he believes animals go to heaven. Francis is not known to have said: “One day, we will see our animals again in the eternity of Christ. Paradise is open to all of God’s creatures.’’ (Those remarks were once made by Pope Paul VI to a distraught child, and were cited in a Corriere della Sera article that concluded Francis believes animals go to heaven.) An earlier version also referred incompletely to the largest animal protection group in the United States. It is the Humane Society of the United States, not just the Humane Society.

The New York Times wasn’t alone in attributing the remarks to Pope Francis, according to Emergent.info, a rumor-tracking website founded by Poynter’s Craig Silverman. Time and BuzzFeed also reported the story, attributing the news to The New York Times. Both have since set the record straight.
