Started thinking though, what if a proper demon popped into this dimension and requested the same.

Some people believe aliens are demons, regardless I don't see why not. In theory you can sin all your life, repent in his name and get baptized. All is then forgiven.
Do demons have souls to be baptized for?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but according to the Bible, fallen angels were cast out of heaven becoming demons trapped between Earth and Heaven. I researched the "aliens are demons" theory for a while and it is really interesting. What is compelling me to respond is a juxtaposition Op provided. Because if the bible is true, then the Pope knows they are not demons because they would never agree to baptism (this assumes the pope is legitimate in his beliefs). Is Pope saying aliens aren't Demons? I'm so confused.

So, there is that thread about how the Pope (cool guy btw, no hate here) suggested he would baptize an alien if it came and asked.
Seems a no brainer really...sure...different culture or people requesting to be included in some strange religion..fine, if that's your choice, and who knows...if its true, then voila..first alien to go into human heaven when ya die.
Started thinking though, what if a proper demon popped into this dimension and requested the same. A horned leather winged demon. satans minion...say he escaped hell for a second and got to the church, requesting to be baptized.
Is baptism open for all, to include the condemned?

The pope claiming that he would baptize an E.T. is not Biblical.
Satan and his angels were cast to this world only, therefore only the inhabitants of this world have been exposed to sin.
The inhabitants of other worlds are sinless, and live in accordance with the Laws of God,
