Pope Says: Non-Catholic=Non-Christian

This gave me a little chuckle.

A 16-page document, prepared by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which Pope Benedict used to head, described Christian Orthodox churches as true churches, but suffering from a "wound" since they do not recognize the primacy of the Pope.

But the document said the "wound is still more profound" in the Protestant denominations -- a view likely to further complicate relations with Protestants.

"Despite the fact that this teaching has created no little distress ... it is nevertheless difficult to see how the title of 'Church' could possibly be attributed to them,"

Oh, fine, Ratzi. Go ahead and start a few more holy wars. You're already the worst Pope since JPII, behind even The Space Pope, and he's completely fictional.

Jesus in a toaster.
