Another video of Fr. Barron: Good atheists can be saved. Vatican II told us so.

Nostra Aetate can be accused of many things, but it is not universalist. If you're going to make sweeping claims, be capable of substantiating them. Your assertion that in the documents of Vatican II "we don't need Christ to avoid" Hell doesn't quite withstand scrutiny. Example:
Quote:Since no one can be saved who does not first believe, priests, as co-workers with their bishops, have the primary duty of proclaiming the Gospel of God to all. In this way they fulfill the command of the Lord: "Going therefore into the whole world preach the Gospel to every creature" (Mk 16:15), and they establish and build up the People of God. Through the saving word the spark of faith is lit in the hearts of unbelievers, and fed in the hearts of the faithful. This is the way that the congregation of faithful is started and grows, just as the Apostle describes: "Faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ" (Rom 10:17).
