Well, here you fall afair of the common Catholic theological concept
of the "anonymous Christian" -- the person who, for whatever reason,
is not given the grace to know and believe in Christ in this life, but
believes in what the closest conception available to him/her. This is
a hair, but a critical hair, separater from syncretic universalism: it
doesn't say that everyone will be saved; rather, it says that God 
plays fair and that everyone has the opportunity to be saved.


How many hit points does a Jesus have, anyway?
