"They" don't need to mistranslate anything to make JP II "appear" to tend towards universalism...

Apparently they do, and they did:
Quote:Let me take this occasion to clarify a further point. I reported that Pope John Paul II, according to the English text of one of his General Audience talks, said: “Eternal damnation remains a possibility, but we are not granted, without special divine revelation, the knowledge of whether or which human beings are effectively involved in it.” By now I have been able to get my hands on the official (Italian) version of the talk in the Insegnamenti di Giovanni Paolo II. It agrees with the English except that the words “whether or” are omitted. Thus the Pope cannot be cited as tending toward universalism. On the contrary, he teaches here as elsewhere that some have in fact said “no” to the divine invitation to everlasting life. I believe this to be the case, though the Church has never taught under pain of heresy that anyone is damned.

If cats could actually fire heavy weaponry, I'd have a cat.  Sadly, they just sit there stupidly staring at you, stinking up the house and puking up a hairball once in a while.  Vile creatures.
