Dropping Limbo

I don't usually keep up with changes in Catholic theology, but I found out about this one through the Daily Show.

It seems the Church is dropping Limbo because Africans are worried about babies that die unbaptised not going to heaven. So rather than doing something about, say, Aids, malnutrition and/or malaria, the Church found it much simpler just to make their theology a little easier to swallow.
