Fresh from upseting the Jewish community by approving a prayer calling for their conversion , Pope Benny has turned his benevolent attention to so-called Christians who misguidedly think they go to church every Sunday. Not so, according to Ben; if they’re Protestant, those buildings they go to, and organizations they belong to, aren’t really churches: Pope: Other Christians not true churches
And those poor misguided Orthodox? well, since they have apostolic succession, they are at least churches - but because of their stubborn failure to appreciate that Benny is their leader, they’re really wounded churches:
So, does this mean a resurgence of “outside the Church there is no salvation” as Roman Catholic doctrine, not in the broad ecumenical sense, but in a more narrow sense that non-Roman Catholics are hell-bound?
So - Benny’s checked off Judaism, Protestants, and Orthodox from his “To Do” list, all in less than a week. Wonder what’s up next? Why Muslims are infidels? Hindus are demon-worshippers? I can’t wait for his next pronouncement.
