Via K-Dough's Canada, we learn that religious tolerance has its limits:
Pope claims primacy of Catholic Church
Pope Benedict XVI has reasserted the universal primacy of the Roman Catholic Church, approving a document published today that says Orthodox churches were defective and that other Christian denominations were not true churches.
Added Pope Ratzo the First, in response to a question from a crowd of journalists, "And don't even get me started on the Jews."
THIS IS WHY YOU CAN"T DEBATE THESE PEOPLE. Not surprisingly, Canadian screech harpy and whining, right-wing harridan Kate McMillan redefines the English language to downplay Pope Ratzo's overwhelming intolerance:
Pope Endorses Catholicism
I'm shocked - shocked - I tell you.
Really, Kate, you dishonest douchebag? Is that all he did? Let's follow Kate's own link to read (emphasis added):
Pope Benedict has approved a new text asserting that Christian denominations outside Roman Catholicism are not true Churches in the full sense of the word.
Wow. That's kind of, like, not at all what you suggested, Kate, is it? But Kate's addendum is the icing on the wanker cake:
Update, from the comments - Kathy Shaidle recommends Mark Shea's response to the media reports. "Exactly what Rome did *not* say is that the Catholic Church is the 'only true Church'. Never mind. It makes a short headline for journalists who cannot be bothered to think."
Ah, the pedantry. So, the Pope didn't claim that the Catholic Church is the one true Church, only that all other churches are not true churches.
Yes, these are the people who will argue how many angels can fit on the head of a pin, and if they went back to debating such idiotic irrelevancies and left the rest of us the fuck alone, I suspect we'd all be the better off for it.
