Not to long ago, the Pope and the Vatican released the 10 Commandments of Driving.  I thought he was nuts then, but this takes the cake.  Today the Vatican released a new document stating that all non-Catholic Christians  and their churches are not true churches or “defective”.  Ummmmmm OK.  I can understand if the Pope puts down Buddhists or Pagans or just about ANYBODY else…. but other Christians?  Ok then…. nothing to see here, move along, move along…..

LORENZAGO DI CADORE, Italy (AP) — Pope Benedict XVI reasserted the primacy of the Roman Catholic Church, approving a document released Tuesday that says other Christian communities are either defective or not true churches and Catholicism provides the only true path to salvation.

The statement brought swift criticism from Protestant leaders. “It makes us question whether we are indeed praying together for Christian unity,” said the World Alliance of Reformed Churches, a fellowship of 75 million Protestants in more than 100 countries.

“It makes us question the seriousness with which the Roman Catholic Church takes its dialogues with the reformed family and other families of the church,” the group said in a letter charging that the document took ecumenical dialogue back to the era before the Second Vatican Council.
