On the issue of belief in Heaven/Hell, the optimism might be a bit overstated. There are quite a few people who identify is not believing in Hell, but who don't necessarily believe that all dogs go to Heaven either. For example, there are the many religious beliefs in a punishment or period of purification in the afterlife that is not eternal, and would generally not be described as "Hell" - at least in the dominant context of the word as understood in this society.
